The FC concept? Made in Michigan, I believe. Jeeps main plant has been in Toledo, Ohio. That goes back to the days of Willys-Overland.

I just purchased a '19 (with apostrophe) Tacaoma -- I am not worried. Remember, the MS Zune was going to be the iPod killer. I know there are Jeep people who will embrace the Gladiator, but I predict it will only last a few years, then fade into the sunset.

Those Jeep Renegade taillights remind me of cartoons where someone is drawn "knocked out" unconscious, or dead. Very ugly and bizarre.

The Gladiator looks like a winner. Although it has a long wheelbase for trails like Pioneer, or Big Bears John Bull, I think that by keeping one stock for simple overland-type trails will be a good idea.

A 24 month lease will set you back $143/month or a nicely equipped Rubicon model will cost about $255/month based on depreciation after two years as seen in the Autoblog article, I may step into a Gladiator while keeping my reliable and fun 2003 Rubicon for the more challenging trails and Pioneer trails of Baja.

My wife will get a kick out of driving the truck and she is happy that I plan on keeping the suspension stock, unless I plan on upgrading to a 40" tire.

That’s longer than the warranty on a jeep!
Do people even bother to keep jeeps after warranty expires?

Maybe that's why they have a 24 month lease. Dump it before it falls apart?

I was parked nearby eating a Chicken wrap (due to blood sugar problems) and the driver walked up to me and told me that his Prius needed a jump start. I thought that it was a joke as the Prius has so many batteries. He told me the battery went too low to start. After I finished my burrito I helped him and in 10 minutes he was driving his battery-challenged Lyft vehicle back towards Palm Desert.

I was driving to Calexico For the 'el imposible' 4WD Run.

For reasons I haven't learned yet, the Prius (I have one) has a little 12v lead-acid battery which powers the car computer and interior lights. This can easily be run down if the interior lights are accidentally left switched on when the car is parked. (The interior lights are old-fashioned incandescent bulbs, and have no auto-off timer.) The Prius can't do anything when this 12v battery is dead.
