Fiat-based baby Jeep spy shots
 
We finally have some evidence of what jeep is planning for its next model. These spy shots may look like a camouflaged Fiat 500L, but they aren't! This model will have both a Fiat and a Jeep emanation, and both will be built in Italy. The Fiat version will be called the 500X, while we still don't know what the Jeep will be called (any ideas?)

The Jeep version will be boxier while the Fiat version will be rounder like the rest of the 500 line. The Jeep will also offer all-wheel drive as an option.

I dont think that would make it across one of my fields let alone go on a sloping trail.

Looks like a station wagon.

definitely not your traditional jeep, seems like jeep wants to start offering some new vehicles, ones it never ever did in the past. i think for it's segment it will do good, seems to be a direct competitor to the Fiat 500

First things first, it doesn't show any characteristics of a Jeep at all, no signature grille or anything along those lines. I'd like to see how it turns out with some jeep badging still cant see it in my mind.

thats because you can't see underneath... You think this little Cherokee gets the 9 speed too? or will it simply be a rebadged 500L with AWD??

At the moment that is still firmly in car territory. I was under the impression they were going to try and make it a small CUV. They could just be experimenting with the underpinnings. I wonder what those cables that attach to the wheels are.

It seems like this vehicle will be both a Fiat and a Jeep, and these pics look like they are more on the Fiat side. The Jeep should have some off road capability. It wouldn't be a Jeep otherwise.
