Wearing a Fiat bade, it will be called the 500X, while the Jeep name remains a mystery. Expect the vehicle to take on a boxier shape for the off-road Chrysler sub-brand and a rounder shape akin to the 500 line for Fiat. Both will be front-wheel drive based and the Jeep will offer optional all-wheel drive.
