Michael Manley, CEO, Jeep at the 2010 Los Angeles auto show

Michael Manley, CEO of Jeep, took the time to talk with me  at the 2010 Los Angeles auto show.

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee is not only better than the previous Grand Cherokee, but is a competitor to it’s competition. Even Manley admit’s that they have had to raise the bar, benchmarking their Jeep against premium brands.

Would Chrysler look good in an IPO?

How does Jeep balance it’s off-road brand with it’s environmental regulations?

Will Marchionne be able to meet the fuel regulations set by the government in order to obtain an extra five percent of Chrysler?
