Chrysler to use Fiat’s C-segment platform on future Jeep models

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Future Jeep models will be using Fiat's C-segment platform, which is used on the Alfa Romeo Milano, according to Chrysler. The platform is highly flexible, as it can be used in two lengths and takes a four-wheel drive system.

Consequently, Jeep plans to use it for lower end models, developing them both as more fuel efficient urban orientated cars and genuine off-roaders.

This is similar to the way Skoda handled the Yeti. Hence, Chrysler/Fiat plans to build a production line for the platform in the US.

At the Detroit Auto Show, three limited edition Jeeps are on display, with the Jeep Liberty Renegade slotting in between the Sport and Limited trim levels. Features include 16-inch wheels, a graphics package and a mildly revised interior.

The Jeep Wrangler Islander has a 'surf blue' paintwork and has 17-inch wheels and various interior and exterior graphics.

The Jeep Wrangler Mountain is based on the S model and has 17-inch wheels, new style side steps, and rail guard and interior modifications such as embossed seat inserts. The three special editions will only be available in the US. [via autocar]
