I would not bet the ranch on that. Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep is starting to really break out of the box. I just wish Ford would too.

DCX has always broken the mold in new designs starting with the Intrepid (and Viper?). They are known for taking concepts directly to production with minimal changes.

However, I doubt you'd be seeing a two-engined vehicle in their line up.

I really like the drivetrain design, looks like inboard brakes on the driveshafts. Smart.

Two 5.7L engines?? Too heavy, they could do it with two 4 cyls.

At the 2005 Detroit Auto Show, it was noted that DCX had only one person who could drive this vehicle. Because of the unique steering, special skills were needed and that person was the only one who has those skills at that time.

With two engines does that mean it will cost you double for oil changes, air filters, and other services?

The main change for production should be getting one on those engines out, making espace for 5, 4 passengers and some little luggage, like any jeep.
