5.7 hemi coming to the GC Overland? How many antenna toppers fit in a Wrangler? June sales up from 2002

One of our readers recently completed a Jeep marketing survey, and from the content of the survey, he was able gleen the following information regarding the future of the engine options for the Grand Cherokee.

Just finished a marketing survey from Jeep. Couple of interesting points.
Looks like the 4.7ho will be dropped for 5.7 hemi but the torque rating were
the same as 235hp 4.7. I think the main point of survey was to determine if
owners/public would be willing to pay $2000-$3500 for a 215hp 376 ftlb
torque engine.

Overall prices seemed a bit lower than my o4 overland but probably just
reflected net after rebates that they want to stop.

Winners of DaimlerChrysler's License To Win Contest

Chrysler Financial, a DaimlerChrysler Services business unit, announced the two winners of a two-year lease with the "License to Win" contest.  Chrysler Financial invited participants of Camp Jeep® to guess the number of antenna toppers packed in a new 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

The "License to Win" contest awarded the two lucky participants with the grand prize of a two-year lease on a new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The winners were Susan Lake of Leesburg, Va. and Joe Keller of Centreville, Va.  Lake and Keller both guessed the number 9,800 and the actual number of antenna toppers was 9,816.

Camp Jeep is one of the nation's largest and best-attended annual vehicle ownership gatherings.  The Camp Financial tent, sponsored by Chrysler Financial, had Dealer Relations Managers on site to discuss the benefits of financing and leasing.  In addition, a roughed-up Jeep Liberty was on display to discuss The Credit Card Test® used to determine what the lessee's responsibilities are at the time of vehicle turn-in. Jeep owners also had the opportunity to apply for a Jeep Rewards Visa® Card.  Jeep Rewards Points can be redeemed for Dealer Dollars certificates to be used for services or products at participating local Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge dealerships.
