Jeep’s small SUVs will use Fiat-supplied platforms starting in 2013

According to Crysler’s five year plan, the upcoming Jeep small SUVs will be using Fiat-supplied platforms starting in 2013. Jeep brand CEO Mike Manley said that the legendary American brand will drop the Patriot and Compass crossovers after 2012 and will be replacing them with a single C-segment vehicle whose platform will originate with Fiat Group.

Also, the Liberty crossover will have a Fiat platform starting in 2013. The Jeep Wrangler will also receive a major modification says, but in 2011. Chrysler Group is planning to sell over 800,000 Jeeps by 2014… a big target if we consider the 497,000 units sold in 2008.
