    Mahindra Roxor

    Check this out.

    Mahindra Roxor - basically a CJ7 (manufactured by Mahindra in Auburn Hills, MI - has different grille) with a diesel engine that is not street legal (doesn't meet current vehicle safety standards).

    A 1940's Willy's, real manual clutch, all mechanical, diesel, can tow, PTO coming, manufactured by an Indian company but Made In America... what's not to like.
    I have a buddy who just picked up a Polaris (I think it's called the Predator) side-by-side., has 3rd. I'd much rather have something like this.

    The history of the company's agreements going back to the one with Willy's and every corporation since is pretty amazing. As a Wrangler owner I'm impressed.

    $19,000.00 for what would amount to a toy for most of us? Cool for sure but why not make a road worthy version for a few grand more? That I would buy!

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Road legal would definitely spark my interest but since I don’t own 1000 acres...I’m out.

    I was intrigued even though it's not street legal as is. Lots of states let folks make side by side utv's street legal so why not this. It looks like a Jeep UTV. Might be cool in Moab. If I had extra cash laying around I'd buy one. I like the diesel aspect.

    So what would a CJ7 with similar farkles cost? I know lots of guys around here have some mighty nice and highly built up Jeeps that seem to be as much fun and rather stout machines. Diesel engine is a plus IMO but not the end all of it. We have dealers here that sell both Mahindra and Kubota and the Kubota's outsell Mahindra hands down.

    Fiat Chrysler trying to stop the sale of Jeep clone

    Fiat Chrysler trying to stop the sale of Jeep clone | Fox News

    Not everyone is flattered by imitation.
    Fiat Chrysler (FCA) has filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission that aims to stop the manufacture and sale of a Jeep-inspired UTV called the Roxor. The Roxor was admittedly designed by Indian automaker Mahindra to resemble the Willys Jeeps, which the it began building under license after World War 2. Mahindra plans to start assembly of the not-street-legal vehicle in Ann Arbor, Mich., this year and sell it in the U.S. at a starting price of $15,499.

    FCA’s complaint argues that, while Mahindra has had prior agreements with Jeep’s previous owners to build and sell products in India, it has no ongoing rights to the company’s intellectual property or approval to sell vehicles using it in the U.S. The filing lays out the key design features of the Roxor that FCA says may confuse consumers, including the boxy shape, flat hood and round headlamps that are incorporated into Jeep’s “trade dress.”
    Jeep is famously protective of its trademarks, and has taken past legal action against entities that have used the brand’s name or design features, including an injunction it was denied that tried to stop General Motors from building Hummers with a seven-slot grille. Mahindra has not yet officially responded to the complaint, but has issued a press statement that says it is “without merit.”
    The company, which best known in the U.S. for its agricultural vehicles, but also sells trucks and SUVs in other markets, has previously indicated that it views the Roxor as a stepping stone to offering street legal vehicles in the U.S. in the coming years.

    China is most famous for their "Theft of Intellectual Property". Anything built in China from the technology developed here in the USA is subject to be cloned because some idiots allowed the communists free access to our research and development. Heck, you can buy Chinese Viagra and get a little woody!
