I agree and disagree. The brand can't be diluted too much.

Make vehicles in a niche, and be good at it. All Subarus have their awesome AWD system, and they haven't started scrapping it at the aims of higher fuel economy to be competitive.

That's where I think Jeep needs to be. There's no reason a unibody RWD Jeep can't play in the small SUV/CUV segment and be competitive doing so. Not every Jeep vehicle needs to be a Wrangler, but they damn well shouldn't be like a Patriot or Compass.

Sad that now, Libertys aren't as gay as they once were.
