Fiat to build Jeep Panda

2009-06-17 10:12
The union between Fiat and Chrysler is expected to spawn a range of new products, including a cheeky new baby Jeep, it has been reported.

Although the mooted changes are not expected to filter to the market before 2011, one of the most exciting additions will likely be the Jeep Panda.

Based on the four-wheel drive Fiat Panda Cross, it is expected to go into production in the US in mid-2011. According to a report on Edmunds.com, the Jeep Panda will be produced alongside the updated 500 with which it shares a platform.

Regarding the Alfa Romeo brand in the US, it is rumoured that at least two new models - the 169 sedan and a new crossover model - will be produced from mid-2011. They will share their platforms with the new-generation Chrysler 300 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee, respectively.

US production of the Alfa Romeo MiTo will reportedly begin in 2011. It will share its platform with a new Dodge compact hatchback.

Fiat will also provide the framework for the next-generation Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Caliber, Dodge Journey and Jeep Liberty. Production of the Jeep Patriot and Liberty will end in 2012.
