Jeep Commander listed as one of the Dirtiest Cars On America's Roads

I just stumbled on this and found it interesting!

The Commander is one of the worst vehicles for greenhouse gas emissions on 2008 models!!! Right behind the Saab 9-7X and Volkswagen Touareg!

I thought for sure larger / heavier vehicles would be on the list, or at least mentioned. Anyway it seems weird but see this:

Wow, almost all of the vehicles on the list are Daimler-Chrysler vehicles! Or maybe now I should say Daimler or Chrysler vehicles...

Yeah, I saw a Chevy or two and I think one Ford. But a big majority were Daimler Chrysler. What's up with that?

exactly what i thought it meant! Considering the prowess of the jeep brand in offroad environments i figured that was going to play a huge role in the statement as well!

Chrysler products have never been known for miserly fuel economy, they've always been at the bottom for domestic manufacturers.

Oh well, time to help out with some global warming!

you mean climate change.

if the planet gets hotter the UK will get colder as the gulf stream stops due to the cold water from the arctic flowing down.

that means more snow , so bring it on !!!!!
