    They save, by taking everything that actually works off, and either replace it with some thin plastic, or they just dont put it back on...

    It will be an excellent vehicle, it's a Triton in every aspect, not a single Fiat part (apart from the badge, also probably made in Japan)

    Ek was vandaag by die Dubai motor show - en het in die Fiatjie gesit (langs die Triton stand). Het self voorheen 'n Triton besit, maar die Fiat gee mens die gevoel dis 'n ou kar (tegnologie) met 'n paar cosmetic changes. Die likes van Toyota, Ford en Volksie is die Fiat 'n entjie voor.

    Having owned a SsangYong (happily, all 3 of them), I'll consider buying it regardless of dealers. FIAT, first in all troubles.

    Extra cab can be Centreback, catchy marketing sorted.

    I am confused. Fiat jumped into bed with Jeep. Has it now become a threesome with Mitsubishi joining the "party"?

    I was wondering about the same thing. It COULD mean the next generation Shogun might have Cherokee under-pinnings.

    Fiat owns Chrysler.
    Depending on the Fiat-Mitsu agreement, Jeep might get Mitsu underpinnings.

    Actually, it is one massive orgy and not a threesome. Have a look at this and follow the lines
