Nobody wants anything to do with FCA other then RAM/Jeep and a few other SUV's from Dodge (Durango, Journey), it is a sinking ship.
Then again with relaxed emissions standards, cheap gas, etc. maybe their focus on big vehicles (SUV/truck) might just work out after all.
I just don't see how FCA will benefit VW. VW just needs to better understand the North American market and adjust themselves accordingly e.g. getting rid of their cars that don't sell well: Eos, Beetle, Phaeton, CC, etc. focus on CUV (the new Tiguan can't come out soon enough), give us a mid size pick up (the Amarok) which the segment seems to be doing pretty good here with the Tacoma, Colorado, Ridgeline, Canyon, etc. Golf Alltrack is a good move to compete with Subaru Outback/Crosstrek.
Touareg is way too expensive which is why it never did good. The new full size VW Atlas looks fancy but will be far more expensive than Touareg.
So they really could use Jeep/Ram.
