Jeep on the other hand was at one time SETTING the trend and making others follow. The sales of the new Wrangler are proof positive that this is and always has been what Jeep should be about. That Iveco rig looks like it would fit right in with the Jeep lineup, if they tweak the styling the right way. LOVE that pickup.

The rumors have it ,that after some jeep styling it will become the new Grand Wagoneer , with the 3.0 VM diesel and the new Pentastar. I would like to see its top on a wrangler as a option.

I'm sure they will do plenty of "Jeeperizing" I think its a good platform for a Jeep vehicle.

it has an awkward attractiveness about it. It would be interesting to see. But I doubt it will be the platform for the Grand Wagoneer would be based off the WKII/Durango platform, I had a friend from a dealer confirm this. The SUV variant does look pretty nice though.

Nobody seems to be saying what "truck" they saw for sure seem to quiet tight limped.
I just Googled up the 2 supposed platforms that IVECO had to seen what we "Might" be looking at.

I'm NOT an SUV guy note jeeps are both TRUCKs !

In the 2014 Waggy thread I posted the NEW durango, showing a simple grill / light swap would make it a "jeep" and was most likely the new waggy.

But I believe I pictured these 2 units as other platforms Jeep is looking at.

Just think of the after market and heck market add on's you could get with such a pair of jeeps.

To me that SUV and that TRUCK might just be as tweak able as an MJ / XJ if not a Bloody Wrangler.
Those would make a find addition to the off roading and work horse Jeeps . . .

I think you're thinking of the wrong Jeeps. This is the CJ-10:


Only made by Jeep and sold mostly overseas, except for some modified ones called CJ-10As that were used by the USAF as aircraft tugs.

This is the CJ-3B:


These were licensed to a ton of companies to build, either on their own or through knock-down kits. Mahindra, Mitsubishi, Asia Motors/Kia, SEAT, Hotchkiss...about 15 or so all in all.

This is the original Mahindra version:


This what it looks like today, called the Thar:


[/Jeep History Lesson]

Anyways, I'm a huge fan of the Massif, and the Defender. However, a lot of guys on Allpar, both people in-the-know and with industry experience are suggesting that, rather than the existing Massif being moved to a Fiat or Chrysler plant, that a new Massif will be developed for NA and international markets based on the J8. Either way, I'd love to get my hands on one.

I posted the CJ-10 same one you did then I posted the CJ-10 with grill n lights simulair to above and I got told it was Mahindra/Jeep CJ-10. Abywho you guy the members the jeep forum told me the second or Modernized CJ-10 was actually a Mahindra.

Now I can't find were I saw them . . . Customized By owner ? ? ?

That's probably the Mahindra Bolero:



Nifty, but not an offshoot of the Mahindra Jeeps. The Bolero is their version of the Defender or the Massif, a BOF commercial vehicle that comes in 2-door pickup, 4-door pickup or wagon styles.

Not sure how those 2units will play out, But I could see them becoming an "International" . . . "Exported" Jeep yes . . . Sure can.

But an NA Jeep would be sweet !
