The recently unveiled 2015 Jeep Renegade is built on the Fiat chassis called the
Small Wide 4x4 Architecture. This flexible platform is derived from the Fiat
500L and will be used in the upcoming Fiat 500X Crossover. The specifications
for the Jeep Renegade give some clues about Fiat 500X...

The design sketch makes it look like the 500X can eat the 500L (which in turn looks like it could eat the 500).

I can hardly wait.

The sketch is not the 500X exactly, but it shows the longer hood proportions and emphases on the sportiness of a CUV in comparison to the extremely roomy 500L's long passenger compartment. The 500X is supposedly longer than the 500L by only a couple of inches or so (Euro Spec).

There's more room for a variety of engines in the 500X. And it would be great to have some towing ability. A little fishing/daydreaming boat, kayak, canoe. A tiny camper. Or even a small cargo trailer for a mass of camping equipment.

I've been thinking about moving, and have been looking at the recreational opportunities in the area I like. And they have campsites in the area. Some water activities. And larger water bodies are not too far away. There are LOTS of trucks in the area. Lots of RV travelers. And roads that change in altitude over a short stretch resulting in roads like these:



That road in Arizona has State Parks, campgrounds, picnic areas all along it. That would be a mighty fine area to test out the new 500X.

And it looks like the Google mobile almost ran this guy off the road!: https://www.google.com/maps/@34.744329,-112.115234,3a,75y,270h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1stPYGfHfPW3LiYf9Wbv_J3A!2e0

This is a job for the 500X! https://www.google.com/maps/place/Jerome,+AZ+86331/@34.747095,-112.112585,3a,75y,90t/data=!3m5!1e2!3m3!1s80152017!2e1!3e10!4m2!3m1!1s0x 872d0f906de9e79b:0xf663f24f2b55668b

Excited for everyone in places like this that will now have the opportunity to choose Fiat.

I like the Jeep Renegade, over the 500X. We'll have to wait and see the real vehicle, without camo.
