Jeepster name may be used for Fiat-based baby Jeep
Now, the modern Jeep brand may revive the Jeepster name for a new product, likely based on Fiat bones, that will slot in at the bottom of the brand's range underneath the soon-to-depart Compass and Patriot. The report comes from Australia's Drive, which cites a dealer source that has seen the vehicle.
That same dealer confirmed there is a link between the Jeepster and the rumored Fiat 500X, and that the former will be available in both front and all-wheel-drive variants. The source also claims both gas and diesel engines will be available, although as this is an Aussie site, we shouldn't take that to mean we'll get a diesel Jeepster in the US.
We still don't have a great idea of what the production Jeepster will look like - those spy shots we have up top are all we've seen of it testing - but the new baby Jeep will reportedly make its production debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, a clue that parent Chrysler has true global ambitions for its small CUV.
