Me I'm not an SUV person, I drive 2dr performance cars n regular cab short bed pickups so currently there isn't a "New" Jeep of interest to me period . . .

So my statement as of currently STAND's IMO.

Whenever you borrow your money from somewhere... and that somewhere owns all business in the country, its hard to sue them.

Smart person once said "the borrower is slave to the lender". It doesn't help that Chrysler was looking at bringing the Cherry QQ to the US as a new small car, when it is a direct copy of a GM vehicle.

Well it may be a cheap China knock-off but at least it looks cool.

The US is the only country/government/entity in the world where borrowing doesnt hurt in the typical sense. Since the rest of the world deals in dollars, we do not have to adjust our prices based on the value of some other currency. Also, we have the luxery of paying off debt by just printing more money. The issue with that is inflation of course. Regardless, how much china "owns" that does not give them the right to manufacture and sell their version of our vehicles. Stealing is stealing no matter how powerful the image you project on the world is.

*Also, that wasnt meant to be a d*** statement just my rebuttal thats all.

Not taken as one

Although I would have to argue that we cant print off our debt, if you look at the nation states that have been through hyper-inflation. And we do have to adjust our prices based on how the dollar fluctuates. look at gas and oil. The supply hasnt changed, our currency just buys less of it.

Anyhow, if I was given one of these Chinese deals, I would rock it till it inevitably broke.

Back in 2004 at the only Camp Jeep in California, Jeep had a prototype that looked exactly like this. It was really cool vehicle. I was hoping that it would come to market, but it didn't. I think it had two engines, front and rear.

That dual 1/2" exhaust looks pretty high-performance.

Koaken, I think you're referring to the Jeep Hurricane. Two engines and some kind of funky 360-degree spin-around system for yuppies who can't parallel-park, right? There's a pic of one on page one of this thread.

It may be comparable to a 4 wheeler, but at least china has the balls to make it. Jeep had alot of nice prototypes that are sitting and collecting dust.

if i had land, would get one just to tool around in.
