2011 Jeep Phoenix Based On Fiat Panda 4x4!
« on: February 09, 2011, 10:55:59 pm »
almost 59 mpg + Real 4X4 + cheap = Not a bad deal?  Revealed! 2011 Jeep Phoenix Based On Fiat Panda 4x4!
                                      See all 6 photos                                                                  There's no doubt that from the front this new mini 4x4 is all Jeep!                                                                                                  Tough and aggressive as a Jeep should be, but much smaller than any other 4x4 on the North American market!                                                                                                  The Jeep lineage makes itself clearly felt in the Willys Green and Tan color combination.                                                                                                  There's nowhere that the new 2001 Jeep Phoenix micro 4x4 can't take you!                                                                                                  This is not just a paper 4x4. It can tackle angles that would leave a Jeep Patriot gasping.                                                                                                  "The cockpit is designed around all of the requirements for handy offroading.                Revealed!  The 2011 Jeep Phoenix 4x4, a remarkable 1.3 litre, 5 door, four wheel  drive mini-Jeep that is going to take the North American market by  storm, while still getting almost 59 mpg!
Based on the Fiat Panda Cross 4x4, the Jeep Phoenix is simply  rebadged, but completely suited to North American offroad conditions. It  is also an exceptional city car that gets far higher mpg than any  hybrid on the market, including the Honda Insight and the Toyota Prius.  And all that with a conventional gasoline engine with no hybrid  technology anywhere!
The new Jeep is very aptly named Phoenix as it is the type of vehicle  that will allow Jeep to arise magically from the ashes of the  devastated Chrysler. Just days away from what may be the last days of  Chrysler, it is important to note that there are virtually no scenarios  that allow for the Jeep brand to disappear from the face of the Earth.  For many years, Jeep has been the most powerful brand in the Chrysler  lineup and it is effectively inconceivable that Jeep will not continue  in one way or another even in the death throes of Chrysler: Perhaps as a  standalone brand, or maybe as a brand belonging to another major  automotive manufacturer
The Panda / Phoenix 4x4 is definitely the way of the future for Jeep.  It's a small, incredibly economical and thrifty car that can go  anywhere. Yes, its barely 1.3 litre engine would make it the smallest  displacement automobile currently sold in the USA with only the Smart  Car having a tinier engine, but the Panda / Phoenix delivers. It can  very comfortably cruise at highway speeds and the powerplant contains  enough grunt to take the little mini-Jeep up frighteningly steep  inclines.
With an innovative four wheel drive system which is engaged by  viscous coupling with two Electronic Locking Differentials that cut in  below 20 mph to brake wheels that find themselves without grip and  slipping and proceed to transfer torque to the other wheels, the Panda /  Phoenix 4x4 can handle anything the street or the dirt can throw at it.

Yes,  of course, there is no such thing as the 2011 Jeep Phoenix. Not yet  anyway. However, this Hub goes to show how there is no need for  extensive redesigning and reskinning of some of the best Fiat models.  They can go on sale right away, without having to be extensively  modified in any way other than to meet North American safety and  emissions regulations!
I've driven a Panda for thousands of miles in Europe and can assure  anyone that it is a spectacularly capable car, with ridiculous amounts  of room considering the overall size of the vehicle, and more than  powerful enough to shred any highway speed limit in North America. It is  nothing short of an amazing small car and when dressed up in Phoenix  4x4 garb it will make an astounding, proper, suitable, and extremely  welcome economy addition to the Jeep lineup.
I'd buy one as soon as they hit the showrooms. They may not be  Chrysler showrooms, but there will be some dealer network somewhere that  will carry this exceptional mini 4x4 onroad/offroad great city car!"
