The second set of spy shots of the Baby SUV from Jeep has the background cropped out of them, so we get to focus on what is left in each image. The vehicle in question will be the smallest Jeep offered by the company, and it will be manufactured in Stellantis's plant in Tychy, Poland.
Its platform will be shared with other models from the Stellantis portfolio, and all rumors point to it being the brother of the upcoming Alfa Romeo Brennero and the replacement of the Fiat 500X. As you can observe, there is a cutout in the bumper for the exhaust, so there will be at least a version of this car with an internal combustion engine.
However, the A-UV from Jeep will also be offered in an all-electric version, and hybrid models are expected to fill in the gaps. Or, the hybrids may be the norm, while the all-electric model will be the most expensive in the lineup.
It is unclear if this vehicle will have all-wheel drive even as an optional feature, but do not get your hopes up too high. We would not dream of a performance variant or any off-roading capabilities for the baby SUV from Jeep.
According to previous reports on the matter, the Baby Jeep will come with a front-wheel drive configuration for its base model, and its production should start as early as November 2022.
Since this is the first time we have seen the all-new Jeep, we are a bit skeptical about that deadline, but time will tell if the reports from May 2021 were on the money or not.
