    If Grand Cherokee can be priced at 30-35 with FIAT's V6 diesel, then it's a winner for sure. It'll gobble up the Q5's and the X3's for breakfast lunch and dinner.

    Is the 3.0 V6 diesel that power's the GC in Europe from Fiat? In UK, it's priced at GBP 37,995. Assuming an exchange rate of Rs.80 the ex-showroom price comes to Rs.30.5 Lakhs. Add 102% duty if it's a CBU and the price zooms to over Rs.50 Lakhs! :(

    PS: I think in last months ACI, they had a feature on new cars' for 2013 where they mentioned that the Grand Cherokee will be priced around Rs.40 Lakhs.

    For 50 Lakhs on road, most Indians would prefer the snob value that a Mercedes , BMW or Audi gives.

    Yes it's a FPT engine. Co developed with VM Motori of Italy, which is owned 50% each by FIAT and GM. VM Motori are the guys who developed the Cruze engine.

    Let's see if they bring it in as CKD or CBU. Even if at 40 lakhs for the V6 diesel, it should stand a great chance. The X3 really is an ugly duckling and the Q5 can do with some competition.

    Ah, the problems for the rich! :evilsmile

    Fiat gets ready to launch the iconic Jeep brand in India

    Fiat India is getting ready to introduce the iconic Jeep brand in the Indian market The Italian automaker is expected to announce formal plans in the following weeks

    The on and off rumors about Jeep coming to India are around since mid-2012 when Fiat India sent out a few press releases with a Chrysler logo on it The Jeep brand is owned by Chrysler which in turn is owned by Fiat

    In fact our good mates at Motorbeam are also reporting the same information claiming Fiat-Chrysler’s COO of Asia Pacific Region, Michael Manley will address a press conference so there must be some substance to these claims

    Fiat India will announce an India-specific plan next month which will contain all the details of Fiat India’s future for the next year

    Coming back to the Jeep brand, the decision to introduce this SUV-specific brand was taken in mind to satisfy Indian consumers appetite for SUVs Recent jump in demand for diesel SUVs in India is something almost every manufacturer is capitalizing on

    Jeep has five models in its stable – Patriot, Compass, Liberty, Grand Cherokee and Wrangler In all probability Fiat India will start the Jeep operations with brand builders such as Grand Cherokee and Wrangler (that looks like a spruced-up Mahindra Thar) Initially we believe that both models will be CBU operations until the brand is successful in India Soon we could see more mainstream models such as the Patriot reaching dealerships

    We will definitely be a part of this ‘Fiat India plan’ announcement So stay tuned and start saving for your Jeep today!
