lol, I dunno about all that.
Saying they're on the same platform is a bit of a stretch too. Do they share similarities? Sure. But saying they're on the same platform is a bit misleading, they're on related platforms but they're not on the same platform like say, Charger and 300 (which incidentally borrowed a bunch from MB's platform as well).
Regardless of who helped design what, they're totally different in feel. I specifically bought the Jeep because it did NOT ride anything like the ML. So you can believe that your Jeep is a rebadged Merc or whatever if you want, but know that it isn't, and be glad it isn't, because if it was it'd ride like a wagon on stilts, not like a tough truck.
