I moved this to a separate topic since it's really not related to MY17 features, etc. Very interesting article!

Re: Jeep May Be Back in the US Military

I doubt it will be back in the US Military. They have already chosen the OSHKOSH JLTV. Of course not every situation demands an up-armored, mine and ambush resistant SUV. And I know that the Armed Services look incrfeasingly into the COTS - Commercial Off The Shelf platforms. Jeep doesn't have a COTS product until the new Wrangler pick-up hits the market.

In the mean time, the Military will test Toyota Land Cruiser, Hilux and the upcoming Ranger. Hard to compete against the Hilux.
