  1. It was announced in December that Chrysler will be entering India with the Jeep brand. And now here we have a scoop picture of the Jeep models which are slated to be launched in India. This pic was taken by an Autocar India reader. The first Jeep product to hit our shores will be the iconic Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler made its debut in 1987 as the successor to the famous World War II Jeep, also known as Willys CJ (Civilian Jeep). The latest-generation Wrangler (code: JK), like the original CJ, uses front and rear live-axles. Fiat is testing the short as well as the long wheelbase versions, and is likely to launch both in India. The Jeep Wrangler arriving here is expected to be powered by a 2.8-litre common-rail diesel engine that’s good for 197bhp. The next Jeep model seen in the spy picture is the Grand Cherokee. Codenamed WK2, this is the fourth-gen Grand Cherokee, powered by a 3.0-litre common-rail diesel that makes 237bhp and is a proper luxury SUV. The Grand Cherokee was recently given a facelift that included some cosmetic as well as mechanical upgrades such as an 8-speed gearbox. Although this looks like the pre-facelift version, we expect Jeep to launch the updated model in India. The Grand Cherokee is based on the Mercedes-Benz M-class – it is thoroughly modern and promises to offer superb off-road ability with plush, comfortable interiors. Initially, both the Wrangler and the Grand Cherokee will be offered as CBUs. Chrysler has already set up an R&D centre in Chennai that houses about 1,000 employees and is the third-largest Chrysler R&D facility worldwide.
  2. Here are scoop pics of the Nissan Urvan caught testing in Chennai sent to us by an Autocar India reader . Looks like we might see a launch soon. The Urvan is sold as commercial cargo mover as well as micro bus with seating configurations from 8 seater to 14 seater in Asian markets. In the Philippines, the Urvan comes with a 3.0 litre 4 cylinder diesel engine putting out 105 horsepower and 209 Nm of torque. Lets see what engine comes to India.
  3. Spy pictures of the next Force Gurkha have surfaced. The new car which should be launched in 2013 was spotted near Pune. Based on the old Gen Mercedes G Wagen, the test car had G inspired round headlamps, bonnet mounted indicators, roof rails and a snorkel. The new Grukha is expected to come with the Mercedes 2.2 litre FMTech engine from the Force One SUV which is BS IV compliant. The Gurkha is a true blue offroader so one cant expect too many goodies but should definitely come with air conditioning. Pricing is not known but it can be expected to be priced in the Mahindra Thar territory. I love the Gurkha personally. It just has so much character. Another reason is that Im extremely fond of the G Wagen. Pics source: Oncars.in
  4. Land Rover has embarked on a massive new model blitz that could more than double its annual sales by 2020. It is almost certainly the biggest investment that the UK car industry has ever seen. Land Rover’s future model line-up will fully cover the three main areas of the booming global SUV market — luxury, leisure and utility. According to Land Rover’s design director Gerry McGovern, the brand is set to expand all three of its model families. The plans include additional models for the Range Rover line-up, a new Defender family and a radical expansion of the Freelander range that will create four new ‘leisure’ SUVs during the next seven years. Land Rover sources refuse to estimate the potential size of the car-maker once the seven-year plan has been introduced. However, market data suggests the global SUV market will reach 22 million units by 2020. If, by radically expanding its line-up, Land Rover captured around three per cent of that market, it would be close to producing 600,000 vehicles annually.

  5. First-ever spy pictures of the Isuzu MU-7 spied in India. Carries an MH-12 red plate, any guesses who is planning to bring this to India? This one comes with a 3.0-litre diesel engine with approx 146bhp in ASEAN markets. Do you think this is good enough to compete with Fortuner and the new Rexton? Images sent by Autocar India readers: Bharat Manghnani and Rohit Tonapi.
  6. In one of the biggest SCOOPs in recent times, Hondas global CEO has confirmed that it will be launching an entry level diesel sedan based on the Brio for India and it will be launched BEFORE the Brio diesel hatch. Of course both these cars are coming in the next fiscal. Exciting times for the Indian car buyers ahead. Do you think these cars will be game changers? Im sure these will open up price wars up and down the segments. What do you think?
  7. We've got our hands on the spy shots of Etios with lighter shade interiors, let the pictures do the talking. This car was spotted at a Mumbai dealer, this means launch could be close!
