GM + Chrysler = ????

GM has enough "on their plate" trying to fight off Toyota, without taking on more "liability" IMO.

Got to agree, the guys in charge can’t make a profit because they won’t listen to anyone as it is.

one bad apple spoils the lot. I think Chrysler would inevitably be that bad apple.
Probably not a good idea for GM to acquire Chrysler. However it could either push sales through the roof due to the publicity of the acquisition, or drive a ton of people away.

I'd just be afraid that they would start sticking hemi's in the suburban. I'm not saying it's not a good engine, but it just wouldn't be right.:neutral:

The cummins is a good engine, but for me I'd still prefer a Duramax. I don't see any reason to drive a vehicle, and have it sound like a school bus or dump truck. I like the fact that the Duramax can get the job done just as well, but quietly.

I'm not sure - in ways i think it would be good. But GM and Chrysler have very different approaches to design - and i am worried for cars such as the challenger - the one Dodge I would own - if GM had control over the design

ALL NEW ~ Chevler Silver-am HEMI: John Doe tells you how they got this new HEMI powered Truck.. "I mean all we did was took a motor from the Ram and put a V6 in it and Put the HEMI in the Silverado and now we call it the Silver-am..." :rofl: :lol:
