Building the Recon in Toluca is a smart move. US-built EVs are threatened by retaliatory tariffs because of trade agreements being violated by the current administration's policies.

This could work, but a hybrid model might have been the smart move. Electrics are flooding the market with few takers. Like most, I’m sticking with reliable, dependable, economic and widely available gas.

Jeep is better off introducing an all new vehicle when the market demand is very low, that way they can slow walk it and get the bugs worked out. CDJR dealers are full of ICE powered vehicles which don't sell, so there is no room left on the dealer lots for another bunch of battery electric vehicles, which consumers will turned their noses up at when they see them. A big reason for the glut of Jeep vehicles is the marketing of their current models is terrible. The average person doesn't know what the 4Xe system is or how it works. The pricing is crazy as well with the mandatory option schemes.

I don't know what the exact size of the Recon is, but it is built on the STLA large platform. I imagine it could be close in size to the two-row Grand Cherokee. A Recon with the right trim and power train might make a great taxi package. Most of the thirteen states following the CARB mandates are along the Acela Corridor, so an advanced taxi package would work. Unfortunately they have hatched up a congestion pricing scheme in NYC which will make the taxi business there unprofitable. Municipal fleets will soon be forced to buy EVs, so there is a market for a robust electric utility vehicle. There are Dodge Durangos, closing in on twenty years old, with the municipal fleet running around the airport where I work. A Jeep Recon would make a great replacement. Now of course if the Jeep bosses decide to chase after the Land Rover marker segment and thumb their nose at historic Jeep niches, these potential sales won't happen. Consumers need to see a utility vehicle being utilized before they will consider one.

Since it on the STLA platform I still hoping for an ICE version. More Capable open air JGC is basically a Bronco competitor.

I would have thought that going electric that auto designers now have a blank page for design. So I don’t understand why they all look the same. The Jeep Recon looks and will compete with Ford Bronco. Range Rover Defender. And the upcoming Scout. Which is also all electric. Oh yes. I think Toyota has something coming out with the same look. And as a Jeep guy most of my life. I’m more interested to see the Scout.
