This post was posted on Amjad's blog two d There had been talks from Al-Zubair Automotives and Al-Shanfari Automotives over the Jeeays ago, asking about why there are Jeep cars in Al-Zubair Automotive's showroom in Al-Authaiba.p brand name. Al-Zubair aims to have all Chrysler International cars (Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep) under one roof and Al-Shanfari's ownership of the Jeep brand came contradictory.
No longer, because in today's newspaper, apparently, the Chrysler group has granted Al-Zubair Automotives the liscence to use the Jeep brand name and distribute Jeep products. There's no mention of Al-Shanfari whatsoever, and there's no indication if the settlement occurred between Al-Shanfari and Al-Zubair or if it came from Chrysler immediately. This is big news because by the end of next year, Jeep is hoping to introduce 5 new models to the market. FIVE.

gThe full press release from Chrysler actually clarifies that Shanfari will remain an authorized Jeep dealer in Oman alongside Zubair. It will be the first multi-dealer automobile brand in Oman.
