WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Jeep Commander and Jeep Grand Cherokee, which are engineered to operate on ethanol fuel, will be available to U.S. customers as part of DaimlerChrysler’s lineup of alternate-fuel vehicles in 2007. For 2007, The Chrysler Group plans to sell more than 250,000 E-85 flexible-fuel vehicles (FFVs). Beginning in model-year 2008, that number will increase to about 500,000 units. All 2007 Jeep Commanders and Grand Cherokees with the 4.7L engine option will be capable of running on E-85 fuel. Also available as an FFV for 2007 are the Chrysler Sebring sedan and convertible with the 2.7L engine and the Dodge Dakota and Dodge Ram pickups and Dodge Durango SUV with 4.7L engine. The Dodge Caravan, Grand Caravan, and Chrysler Town & Country minivans equipped with 3.3L engines will also be available with FFV capability for fleet customers, according to the report. The manufacturer will soon test B-20 in its Dodge Ram heavy-duty diesel pickup trucks, working initially with commercial, government, and military fleet customers.
