Re: 2015 Jeep Jeepster spy photos

I read that Mike Manley scrapped the original plans for this (was originally just going to be a Fiat 500X with a Jeep badge) because it wasn't going to be capable or rugged enough, delaying production 2 years. I was originally extremely opposed, but Jeep insiders have been saying that it will be a real Jeep and will be more capable and rugged than the Compass/Patriot. I guess I will just have to wait and see.

I will say that the way Jeep is marketing the Cherokee is offensive and destroying the brand. Take a look a Jeep's youtube channel if you want to see what I mean.

That's why jeep is in negotiations to build a plant in China to build jeeps for china and SE asia

I'm not talking about the off-roading ones, those I am fine with. I am talking about the Google Glass ones, the Cherokee Effect ones, etc. I bet the Cherokee TH is not that bad off-road. I hate the new Cherokee (I am a purist), but I don't think people give it enough credit for its off-road ability. At least they made a trim dedicated to off-roading.

Re: 2015 Jeep Jeepster spy photos

I don't know about how this will sell, but I can tell you that I don't understand the appeal of these lower end Jeep models.

Re: 2015 Jeep Jeepster spy photos

the biggest appeal will be asia, europe, se asia and in countries where fuel is expensive. Who cares as long as it helps fund our beasts and keep Jeep under cafe requirements.

Re: 2015 Jeep Jeepster spy photos

Fiat platform.
Jeep architecture.
Jeep styling, done right there in Auburn Hills.
Chrysler/Jeep drivetrain.

How is any of this bad?

I'm starting to see a little combination of Wrangler and Patriot under the body bag. That's quite the large exhaust pipe. I'm thinking there's a big 4 cylinder under the hood. No 1.4Ls.

Re: 2015 Jeep Jeepster spy photos

So they rebranded a fiat 500L into a Jeep cause it wasnt selling?

Read above. The BU (Jeep Jeepster) has its own architecture.

That is NOT a rebrand/rebadge.
