Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

I was invited to a preview of the new WK2 Overland today. This is probably the first right hand drive we have seen. Please excuse the cell phone pics. I must really get a Nokia N8! Anyway I thought you might like to see it.

Re: Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

You would think a "JEEP" would in nature be a left hand drive vehicle.

Why should an American car company waiver to the English? After all if it were not for the USA and the JEEP the English would be speaking German.

Just an observation!!!

Why shouldn't Jeep cater for the English by producing RHD vehicles. They make dollars for them by doing so and there are many more countries that drive on the left besides the UK,opening up more markets for profit. Over here the Overland costs around £43000 that should make a good profit for Jeep and if I recall did not the Germans have quite a say in running things for a while?
Car production needs a global market to survive nowadays, the more they can sell the better.

Re: Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

Wir alle sprechen Deutsch irgendwie und Jeep ist ausgezeichnet und die europaer ist gebaut ins Ostereich! Was wirklich Mit dem Jeep fährt, müssen darüber sagen?!

And correct me if I'm wrong, but the SRT8 was only available in LHD in the UK for a while. They obviously brought out RHD for a reason.

Re: Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

So what you're saying is that...since the US intervened in a war 70 years ago, everyone should either bow down to our left hand drive standards or not have access to any of our vehicles. I just got secondhand embarrassment from your comment.

Re: Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

It has right hand drive because they drive on the left. Driving on the left should be the point of your arguement instead!

Re: Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

They sell a good number of RHD Liberty models here in the USA, mainly to rural mail carriers.

Re: Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

I don't see how a RHD Jeep would change the essence of itself.....
