2015 Jeep Renegade Gearing Up For World Conquest With Three Plants?

When the 2015 Jeep Renegade was first announced, we were hearing sales-target rumors of about 150,000 per year as a Jeep, and 130,000 as the Fiat 500X. But new information has come to light suggesting Jeep's planning to sell way, way more. » 4/15/14 3:45pm Tuesday 3:45pm

Fiat-Family Playboy Disses New Renault Twingo As A Copycat

Lapo Elkann is the heir to the Agnelli family that rules Fiat from, I believe, Mt. Olympus, and he seems to live the sort of life you'd expect. He was a factor in the rebirth of the 500, which may be why he's posting stuff that calls out Renault as copycats. Too bad he has no idea what he's talking about. » 3/26/14 7:00pm 3/26/14 7:00pm

The Fiat 500 695 Biposto Is The Nuttiest Abarth Yet

The Fiat 500 Abarth is already a bit of an angry car. Firm suspension, a manual transmission only, and an exhaust that sounds like it hates you and every other living thing.

Fiat May Steal The Mazda Miata-Based Roadster From Alfa Romeo

Stop the Internet presses! For the past two years, we've heard that the 2015 Mazda Miata's platform will also underpin a new Alfa Romeo roadster.

Fiat Has A Ridiculous Luxury Tie-In And I Have Some Ideas For More

Special editions of cars can be fun, and they're not a bad way to relatively cheaply target a car at a very specific market. Which I imagine is what Fiat had in mind when they teamed up with perfumer Guerlain to build the La Petit Robe Noire edition Fiat 500. Of course, this one is likely targeted at men in rural… » 1/29/14 2:20pm 1/29/14 2:20pm

Terrible Predictions: What Will Happen In A Fiat-Chrysler Romance

It was announced this week that Fiat will be taking full ownership of Chrysler. Fiat makes some pretty good cars. Chrysler makes some pretty good (kinda?) cars.

We Tried To Go Slow; It Didn't Work

Normally we bring the high horsepower performers of our fleet out on "Autogasm" events, but this week the pace was (not really) reduced. We limited horsepower to 250 and narrowed it down to the following five cars: » 11/14/13 2:54pm 11/14/13 2:54pm

Fiat Reportedly Wants To Blow Up The 500 Family Mini-Style

It's safe to say that Fiat's revival in the U.S. hasn't been going all that fantastically, and for reasons that have nothing to do with Jennifer Lopez anymore. Sales have been lagging and dealers are unhappy. But a new report says the brand plans to go big by going Mini, so to speak. » 11/04/13 10:40am 11/04/13 10:40am
