FCA Comments, Mercedes Teaser, & GMC Drive
August 25, 2017
We’re hearing from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles about reports a Chinese automaker may want to do a deal. Even though FCA says they do not comment on market rumors, they have issued a statement saying, “From time to time, FCA may receive inquiries about potential strategic transactions and will evaluate such inquires consistent with its duties to stakeholders.” As we’ve been telling you, Automotive News has reported Chinese automaker Great Wall is interested in buying Jeep. Earlier this week FCA issued a statement saying, “it has not been approached by Great Wall Motors in connection with the Jeep brand or any other matter relating to its business.”
Can’t wait to see the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet? Neither can we. So Mercedes is revealing a teaser video. It shows a preview of the roof opening on the cabriolet. The world premiere is set for the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in next month.
MotorWeek is just back from driving the 2018 GMC Terrain. We were among the first to try the redesigned compact crossover in and around Pittsburgh. There are three new engines… all turbo four cylinders. Two gas and a diesel. We’ll have our driving impressions coming soon on MotorWeek.
