Ditto G. Looks like Veronica Johns has been implicated as well.

With regards to the Ram truck deal driven by Ateco in NZ, he (as in Neville Crichton) seems to have moved very very quickly to remove Ateco from the slanging match.

Quote:
UPDATE 6:45pm: Fiat Chrysler New Zealand parent company Ateco Automotive has advised that former Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Australia CEO Clyde Campbell's involvement in the business has been terminated, and that it is "business as normal" for the distribution of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat and Alfa Romeo vehicles in New Zealand -- and the RAM trucks import plan, which remains part of Fiat Chrysler NZ business.

"Fiat Chrysler New Zealand is [a] wholly owned subsidiary of the Ateco Group. Mr Clyde Campbell no longer has any association with the company or any involvement in it," said an Ateco spokesman in a statement tonight.

"As soon as the company became aware of the accusations against Mr Campbell the relationship was terminated in a mutually agreed settlement.

"Following the changes in ownership it is entirely business as normal at Fiat Chrysler New Zealand and the RAM project, a part of the Fiat Chrysler New Zealand business, continuing as planned.

Grand Cherokee in the media

Veronica Johns had been at the business for years, so if there was anything dodgy going on she would have known, and if she didn't know - well, she should have. Karla Leach, the "customer service" person at the time would have had to have known what was going on too.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Delayed proceedings until June 16th. Damn, I was set to enjoy this over the coming days. Will have to wait now.

Federal Court case between Fiat Chrysler Australia and Clyde Campbell has been delayed

Quote:
The full extent of the allegations are yet to be realised and News Corp Australia understands there may be further action taken against other industry executives.
I wonder if this means that the person who was working for FCA Aust during both the Clyde Campbell and the Veronica Johns tenureships and is now working for Mazda Aust, will also come under question? Ummmm...

Another pointless review.
The only thing I got from that was the Disco rapes you "satnav adds $3240."

Car Advice Australia
Jeep Grand Cherokee will have option Hellcat engine

[IMG][/IMG]

Reports suggest that the current SRT model will be re-branded as the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and may have the option of the supercharged Hellcat engine.

Late last year, Allpar reported that Fiat Chrysler (FCA) had trademarked the Trackhawk name. Just as the Trailhawk moniker is being used to specify off-roading versions of certain Jeep models, the Trackhawk badge would be used to denote performance-oriented Jeep models.

Given the company’s stated desire to reserve the SRT sub-brand for Dodge vehicles, at least in the US, the Trackhawk would be a like-for-like replacement for the current Grand Cherokee SRT.

Car and Driver believes that FCA is working on a version of the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk that will be powered by the Hellcat engine that’s currently doing service in the Dodge Challenger coupe and Charger sedan.
In both those vehicles, the 6.2-litre supercharged Hellcat V8 pumps out 527kW of power and 880Nm to the rear wheels via eight-speed automatic; a six-speed manual is also available for Challenger buyers.

A Hellcat-equipped Grand Cherokee is estimated to have a 0 to 60mph (96km/h) time of under four seconds. The current Grand Cherokee SRT takes 4.6 seconds to hit the 60mph mark.

The American magazine says that engineers at Fiat Chrysler are currently having problems getting the Grand Cherokee‘s all-wheel drive system to reliably cope with the Hellcat engine’s 880Nm of torque. This may entail Jeep either forgoing all-wheel drive or limiting torque output in certain gears.

There’s also another issue at the moment. The company can’t make enough Hellcat drivetrains to satisfy demand for the currently available Charger and Challenger. This has reportedly lead to the company closing the order book for both cars until around August 2015.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will have optional Hellcat engine – report
