It's an interesting concept. But, that's from a guy that thought the first model year of the Isuzu Vehicross was an interesting concept...

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

Hey, the Vehicross was awesome! I'd drive one of those any day!

Anyways. I honestly think a Panda-based Jeep is a fantastic vehicle, as long as it's more then just a rebadged Panda. If they can build something like a modern-day Suzuki Samauri/Geo Tracker, it'd be fantastic-bare-bones, off-road-ready, cheap, reliable and efficient, I'd be all over one.

Especially with the diesel.

That and the price of diesel in the US makes it hard for diesel powered cars to compete with their gas counterparts.

Not so much any more, the average price of diesel is a lot closer to the average price of gas. When it was a dollar or more different, then yeah, but now it's viable.

In Canada, diesel's finally cheaper then gas again! Barely, but still.

I actually like the idea of this "Jeep Panda". I know it's a capable little car, it has been used even as a reliable workhorse by the Swiss Post for many years, in rough conditions. So it's not all about cooked spaghetti.

However I do hope they put a bit more focus in the interior to give it more street-cred, something that a Jeep should have. Also some technical considerations from the Jeep engineers would be nice.

But all in all, Jeep doesn't have a small entry-level vehicle at the moment, this could be it. If they just do it with good taste.

There's plenty of ways this thing could be made into a Jeep that can hang with the rest of the lineup. Yeah, it'll never be a Wrangler, but it's not supposed to be. Wranglers are supposed to be Wranglers.

Do something like the Renegade concept, or a new-age Suzuki Samauri-type thing, and you're set!

Please Protect the heritage of a great company and the design of vehicles that are already perfect like the Wrangler and Cherokee models. In Jesus name we pray!
