Mercedes G Class Rolls On, Jeep Recall, Stop-Start Tech: Today’s Car News

May 22, 2012
Mercedes-Benz is offering an updated G Class SUV for the 2013 model year, which will once again offer both a regular model and high-performance AMG variant. Updated with new drivetrains and safety features for the 2013 model year, the G Class now will be in production through at least 2015, Mercedes-Benz confirms, and we could even see it still after that.

Chrysler has issued a recall on its 2010 Jeep Wrangler model due to a potential fire hazard. The recall only affects those 2010 models equipped with an automatic transmission, of which there are said to be some 67,872 examples in the country.

According to a new survey, Americans are ready to adopt fuel-saving engine stop-start technology. Already popular in Europe, the technology is now filtering across to more models sold in the U.S. and may become a standard feature on most models in the near future.

All this and more in today's car news, right here on The Car Connection.
