• The first Jeep hy­brid will be the Rene­gade? • The ’18 Jeep Wran­gler and ’19 Chero­kee have their ad slo­gans. The Wran­gler is get­ting “Freedom & Ad­ven­ture,” while the Chero­kee will go with “The World Comes With It.” Watch here: youtube.com/jeep. • Hope you haven’t had your hopes up for the all-new Wran­gler JL to have those cutout half-doors that Jeep teased us with upon re­veal in 2017.

• Is Fiat Chrysler going to stop making diesel mod­els by 2022—but keep on keep­ing on with pro­duc­tion in the U.S. af­ter that date, in­clud­ing the Jeep Wran­gler?

• DragTimes pit­ted a Jeep Grand Chero­kee Track­hawk against a Tesla Model X. How’d 707 horses do against 259 horses? An­swer here: bit.ly/2G0hgPl. • Ser­gio Mar­chionne, the big­wig at Fiat Chrysler since 2009, will no longer be CEO come April 2019.

• As if Jeep reach­ing cult sta­tus is news. But it is, be­cause it’s of­fi­cial: The Gath­er­ing (So­ci­ety of Cult Brands) gave Jeep the nod as a 2018 Cult Brand—so far, the only au­to­mo­tive brand to get that.

• Has Jeep now pro­duced more than 25,000 mod­els of the Com­pass in India? • Will the in­te­rior of the new three-row Jeep be nothing like the Grand Chero­kee’s? • Who got the ’18 Cus­tomer First Award for Ex­cel­lence nod? 468 of Fiat Chrysler deal­er­ships, in­clud­ing Jeep-based ones. Ev­ery one of the 2,600 deal­er­ships is el­i­gi­ble each year.
