Italian car site Quattroruote has once again run spy shots of what it believes to be the upcoming mini-Jeep, destined to be built in Italy.
The car, engineered on at least three continents, is loosely based on the Fiat 500X, with which it was co-developed; however, like Cherokee, it is expected to have much greater ground clearance and better approach and departure angles than its relatives.
As yet un-named, though once thought to be tagged “Jeepster,” the new vehicle will likely carry a Fiat diesel in Europe and India, and a Chrysler four-cylinder gasoline engine in North America; early reports suggested these would be coupled to a nine-speed automatic with an optional all wheel drive system.
