Default Chrysler-Fiat and Jeep

Chrysler-Fiat could import these Iveco models that Fiat already builds and sells, then rebadged them as Jeep (or even build them here).

It would be cool to see these in the US with a seven slot grill

Iveco Massif





Iveco Santana PS-10






I have no idea what these cost, and highly doubt it would ever happen.


But it would be cool

Kinda cool. Reminds me of an Early Bronco (which I'd rather have)

I don't see why they would do that considering the fact that all the Jeep tooling is almost new. And, they are half way through building the line for the new WD / Wk.

I can see them dumping the whole project. the thing was designed by Diamler and its whole chassie is Diamler parts. they are not out of the picture since they have now been reduced to a supplier. I would expect Fiat to bring in the big guns to out shoot Ford and GM, if they want to sell to a huge market fast they should start out with a couple from each line up. sure I expect to see the "500", but they have way better cars in the back most don't even realize.

www.alfaromeo.com check out the models links.
www.fiat.com check the gallery if you want to see some cool stuff.

i would drive it just like that until the wheels fell off. the only improvement would be a diesel.
