It's looking more and more like merger between Groupe PSA and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is going to happen. The deal, expected to be completed in early 2021, will result in a 50:50 merger between the two companies and the creation of a new group, Stellantis.

The company's name has its roots in Latin where "Stello" means "to brighten with stars". The name carries no connection to either company, nor does it have any ties to the deep, rich history both brands have related to the companies that gave their first letters to the Fiat Chrysler and Groupe PSA names.

A logo for Stellantis has recently been unveiled. A release details the origins of the logo design saying that it "symbolizes the rich heritage of Stellantis' founding companies and the unique combined strengths of the new group's portfolio ... as well as the diverse professional backgrounds of its employees working in all of the regions".

You won't see any Stellantis branded cars on the streets anytime soon. The Stellantis name will be used exclusively at the group level, as a corporate brand.

Groupe PSA has a number of divisions, including those that sell motorcycles and bicycles. You can see a list of the auto brand affected as part of the merger here. FCA's properties (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Fiat, and others) are a little better known to Americans.

No brand logos will change as part of the merger.

Despite the logo news, the merger is still subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by both companies' shareholders at their respective Extraordinary General Meetings and the satisfaction of antitrust and other regulatory requirements.

If you're reading this and thinking it sounds like a blast - you're right. There's a catch, however, which comes in the form of an intense consideration process that culminates in a racing event with a pro driver on a closed course. A panel of judges will evaluate the video entries, and wrestler Bill Goldberg will oversee the race between the top ten finalists. Dodge says the series of eliminations will air like a reality TV show, with the winner being revealed in the final episode.

Today is the opening day of the application period. You have until February 28 to submit your short video, which can be a maximum of two minutes. Get busy making your video and head here to submit it before the deadline.

The Grand Cherokee is now available with three rows.

Stellantis

The Grand Cherokee has always been the Jeep that could haul the family to the mall as easily as it could traverse serious off-road terrain. The design was starting to age, however, after ten years on the market without a major redesign. Jeep fixed that for the 2022 model year, and after a week behind the wheel, there are three things we think you should know about the new SUV.

It Comes in Two Formats

The three-row Jeep Grand Cherokee L debuted in 2021 as the first Grand Cherokee with more than two rows of seating. The standard Grand Cherokee followed it with many of the same features and upscale finishes, but in a more familiar two-row SUV format. The move to a two-body-style lineup for the Grand Cherokee does not mean there's less choice. The standard two-row model is offered in a staggering number of configurations, including a 4xe plug-in hybrid variant.

It's Luxurious

Top Grand Cherokee trims have long been plusher and more luxurious than most people expect from a Jeep, and the new model takes things further down that road. Top trims feature luxurious materials such as quilted leathers and real wood trim, along with desirable and innovative electronics features. An optional passenger-side touchscreen offers climate controls and other functions to front-seat passengers, and Stellantis' UConnect infotainment software is among the easiest to use and most intuitive interfaces in the auto business.

It's Available with Three Strong Powertrains

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6. A 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is available, and Jeep's excellent 4xe plug-in hybrid can be added to certain trims. The Wrangler was the first vehicle to use the system, which provides instant torque and excellent all-electric driving range. When the battery is depleted below a certain level, the vehicle then switches to operate as a normal hybrid.
