Chrysler has had plenty of partnerships over the years, and as odd as it may have seemed in the beginning, the tie-in with Fiat

arguably makes more sense than any of those past pairings. Chrysler

doesn't have much of a presence overseas, and Fiat doesn't in North

America. Putting them together, then, could be the perfect formula for

global success. The Fiat 500 is coming to North America, and while we've

been hearing about Chrysler vehicles being sent to Europe for quite

some time now, this is the first actual proof.

The vehicle you see here will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show as the Fiat Freemont. Look familiar? That's because it's essentially the Dodge Journey

with a different badge on the nose. Otherwise it's essentially the same

vehicle, produced alongside the Journey at the same plant in Toluca,

Mexico.

The only major difference to speak of is under the hood, where Fiat's

own 2.0-liter MultiJet turbo diesel engines (with 140 or 170 horsepower)

will be offered with front-wheel drive and a manual gearbox initially.

All-wheel drive, an automatic transmission and Chrysler's 3.6-liter

Pentastar V6 will be offered shorly after the initial launch.
