AutoComplete: FCA life-hacked its way into EU emissions compliance
Here's what's making news on Road Show, it looks like Fiat Chrysler found a creative way of getting around increasingly EU emissions regulations.
See, under current EU law, FCA is now able to pay Tesla a giant pile of money to count FCA's vehicles.
As part of Tesla's fleet, and when we say giant pile of many, we mean hundreds of millions of Euro's.
It's a pretty solid deal for Tesla, which could definitely use the cash and probably less of a great long term solution for FCA, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do Nissan's Frontier pickup is old.
The last time it got a major update was 2004.
And to put that in perspective, that was the year that Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King won a Critic's Choice Award.
Anyway, even Nissan is now I bet it's time to freshen up.
It's a mid size and we can now expect all new frontier in 2021.
We don't know much about it other than we'll ride on an updated version of it's current platform when we get a new V6 and a more modern auto trans.
Every year around this time Jeep aficionados make the pilgrimage to a more a itad to celebrate everything that wears a seven bar grill.
Far from wanting to let its customers have all of the fun, Jeep always cooks up a batch of special one-off vehicles, and drives the heck out of them there.
This year Jeep's six concepts are almost all based on the recently released Gladiator pickup, and they rule.
They have names like The Way Out, The Flat Bill, the J6, The Gravity, The JT Scrambler And the M 7 15, 5 Quarter.
