Not sure where you get this, but here's a quote about the new Jeep interior:

"Another interior component used to differentiate brands with the group is seating. However, it's also one interior component where they've experienced an occasional craftsmanship challenge. "Sometimes the craftsmanship on seats wasn't what we wanted," says John Sgalia, director of interior/exterior Jeep design, "but it wasn't always the supplier's fault. It's happened that the supplier has delivered just what we asked for, yet, the end product is not up to our craftsmanship expectations. We realize that we have some things we can learn from our suppliers."

Sgalia doesn't sound quite Germanic, although Margaret Hackstedde, director of the color, trim and fabric department, could be an import from Europe since she was with the former Daimler/Chrysler group.

Should have specified that I meant the V6; the engineers chat implied the V6 may be getting duals before long. Adding something to compete with Sync or at least OnStar would be a useful 2010 plus, as well.
