Romanian-Built SUV to Challenge Competitors for US Sales

This image was lost some time after publication.

There may be one more SUV on the market with which to traverse the migration paths of elk, or the round-robin path of junior's soccer league. The Romanian-built Cross Lander 244X, just got its go-papers from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and will likely hit dealership lots in mid-2005.

The 244X is a bare-bones, the-dingo-ate-your-baby kind of SUV — think Cherokee Sport, not Range Rover Sport — based on a similar off-roader built for years by Auto Romania (ARO), the country's state automotive company. It's powered with a four-liter V-6 engine and will sell at a price starting in the low $20,000s, according to the company. If nothing else, it sure is a good time in history to be a pipeline inspector.
