Bloke at the Jeep dealership in Cairns tells me that this vehicle is highly likely to appear in Oz as it shows up with a code on his computer product listing.

For those who have not seen this here is a pic

Question is is he pulling my leg or is there something concrete in this. On paper it looks like a viable alternative to the Thai twin and extra cabs in various makes.

I work for a Chrysler dealership and there have always been rumours flying around Chrysler as to what vehicles we will and won't get in Australia. In truth don't believe anything until you see it driving down the road.

Chrysler has come up with some great concept vehicles of late.
The voyager people mover, the PT cruiser, coil sprung Jeep,

The 2002 Cherokee looks incredibly like a 1997 4dr Wrangler prototype, apart from the nose. Takes em a while from prototype to reality but anything is possible.

Chrysler is currently working on an Egyptian made military spec wrangler of about the dimensions of the Gladiator. Has been lots of civilian interest in the vehicle so Chrysler is just as likely to rake in the dollars wherever they can. They have been doing it with Jeep badge for years now.

I sent them an email late last year to please hurry up and release a 4b pickup as I have had a great run with Chrysler products (and all other veh I have *owned incl m/cys) I need a 'dog friendly' rig with a tray or pickup rear. With the price difference now diesel/gasoline, long as it has a engine that is ok on MPG (ltrs) it's mine. Prefer a sloping 'screen to (1) deflect stones/birds & (2) get better reception from my GPS's. *Triumph: Matchless: VW: MGA: VW: Diahatsu F-55 4x4: Rocsta Dsl 4x4 : Falcon XC: Triton T/Dsl 4x4: Hilux D/C Dsl 4x4: Triton 4x2 (Had a CZ first at 15..Ok 'cept SAE 30 oiled up the plug quick.Got my licence on the Matchy @ 17)

Its not going to get much interest with a 1200 wide x 1700 long cargo bay.
I doubt there would be a big enough market for it without support from tradesman etc
Maybe it will take an alloy tray like all the Jap models
