I must re-watch it because I didn't watch it carefully.

  • Basically he said the he likes Alfa Romeo since his was a kid,
  • The new engines are coming and even though they are small or smaller then... they will need more cooling even then a Hellcat.
  • Jeep has 2 different design teams, one for core products like Wrangler and Grand Cherokee and the other one international.
  • Some concepts will be at Detroit Auto Show next year.
  • He likes Jag I-Pace design, long wheelbase short in height crossover, FCA will do something similar in the near future.
