The Evolution of the Jeep Cherokee

Gray Jeep Cherokee SUV Rocks Blue Yellow Kayaks Rocks Mountains

Since its inception in the 1980s, the Jeep Cherokee has always been a blueprint for America’s favorite SUV. Although the 4×4 capable SUV wasn’t the first of its kind, the Cherokee has always inspired automakers who wish to mimic its esteems. Cruising through 2023 proves to be an unpredictable road for the automotive world. Here’s how the Jeep Cherokee plays a crucial role in transitioning enthusiasts into SUVs and away from sedans. 

Before the Fame, the Jeep was the Oddball Out 

The experts at Jeep recognized the potential of the automotive brand early, and we’re thankful for their determination. Of course, when the automaker initially rose to prominence, no one wanted to be seen in a Jeep as it embodied the remnants of World War II. But, eventually, veterans embraced the ruggedly capable Willy. After all, no other automaker delivered 4×4 capability that fans could trust until Jeep. 

Of course, the Dodge Power Wagon was a successful off-road capable pickup for the time, but it failed to provide an experience that the entire family could savor. Then there’s General Motors and Ford; both automakers were afraid to embark on the four-wheel drive journey until the late 1950s. 

The Jeep Willy ultimately dominated the 4×4 market in the US because it provided an experience that friends and family could appreciate. Pursuing off-road capability was a dangerous gamble for an automaker that already successfully produced economically convenient vehicles, but the Willy was a lucrative gamble. 

The Jeep Cherokee Effect 

The Jeep Cherokee would make its way to the streets in 1974. By this time, the Cherokee had implemented a successful formula from its predecessors with spacious seating, ample cargo capacity, and dynamic four-wheel-drive capabilities.

Automotive competitors such as the Ford Bronco, the Chevy K5 Blazer, and even the Japanese-imported Toyota Land Cruiser attempted to sway enthusiasts away from Jeep. However, in 1974 the Cherokee SJ coined the term “SUV,” and the segment hasn’t been the same. 

When other automakers looked to develop smaller cars during the 1970s fuel crisis, Jeep only heightened its esteem with its larger models, providing some of the best 4×4 models available. So by the 1980s, when a dramatic redesign occurred, the downsized Cherokee became the most historical iteration of the model. 

Did the Jeep Cherokee Evolve, or Did the Enthusiasts? 

Although the Wagoneer would attain the Cherokee’s full size, the American automaker shifted courses with a smaller variation and a new name for the SUV in 1983, the Cherokee XJ. In addition, the new Cherokee said goodbye to old traditions to reveal a unibody structure, delivering a smaller size and ample interior. The remodel attracted so many enthusiasts that the XJ aged well in its production days, producing 15 unforgettable years until 2001. 

The fifth installment of the Jeep Cherokee remains a success to this day. However, the SUV renders the same enthusiasts but with a different mindset. The Cherokee used to be a ruggedly, utilitarian, family off-roader. However, the Jeep SUV has now evolved into a mild off-roader with all-wheel drive. Nevertheless, the SUV can still have a good time with a decent trail. 

The car that coined the phrase ‘SUV’ has become a beautiful people hauler and a powerful influence for automakers that wish to emulate the Cherokee’s success.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe Earns Green 4×4 of the Year

Gray White and Red Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV

The 2023 Green 4×4 of the Year goes to the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe. The plug-in hybrid SUV garnered the accolade from the industries leading publication, the Green Car Journal. Furthermore, the Green 4×4 of the Year award was presented at the San Antonio Auto & Truck Show in San Antonio, Texas. 

Since disclosing the Dare Forward 2030 strategy plan, Stellantis (Jeep’s parent company) has begun to unravel a lineup delivering electric powertrains and more effectual propulsion plant systems. In addition, the Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan will decrease Stellantis’s global carbon footprint by 50%. Moreover, the international automaker plans to drive the automotive industry through its goal of net carbon zero by 2038. 

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee was the first to offer a plug-in hybrid variation with its signature blue tow hooks. However, the 2023 model perfectly embodies the American automaker’s mission of Zero Emission Freedom. Additionally, the Grand Cherokee 4xe’s technology takes fun to another dimension; comfortably etched in the chassis of the hybrid SUV is the freedom and adventure synonymous with Jeep. Furthermore, the Jeep SUV delivers unparalleled performance, fuel efficiency, and a healthier alternative to the environment. 

“The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe does an exceptional job of meeting the needs of a wide range of buyers today. Its 2023 Green 4×4 of the Year® title is well earned, not only due to its considerable trail capabilities and ability to drive 25 miles on battery power alone but also because of the sophisticated and satisfying driving experience it brings to the mission of navigating everyday life.”

 – Ron Cofan, Editor and Publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com

Delivering 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 MPGe is the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe. The hybrid SUV features the most exciting features to date. Look at the high-tech, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, and don’t forget the two electric motors. The nay-sayers pretending to be unimpressed haven’t seen the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. The Grand Cherokee’s output resembles Kevin Durant on his best night with 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Jeep Wagon has the spirit of a sports car going 0-60 mph in six seconds and a max towing capacity of 6,000 lbs.

Orange Jeep CJ Surge EV Black SUV

Jeep CJ Surge Makes a Grand Debut at SEMA 2022

Orange Jeep CJ Surge EV Black SUV

The 2022 Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) (November 1st-4th, 2022) kicked off last Monday in Las Vegas, NV. Mopar and Stellantis OEM accessory division premiered a dynamic trio of concept vehicles. Yet, the catalyst was the electrified Jeep CJ. But, the best has yet to come, ladies and gents, the battery electric technology inside the CJ may act as a restomod for the revival of classic American muscle cars. 

“The Jeep CJ Surge concept explores a future zero-emission propulsion system kit and supports the Jeep brand’s mission to become the leading electrified SUV brand in the world. Separately, our Ram 1500 Backcountry X and TRX Gold Shot concepts showcase a truckload of innovative Mopar accessories for our award-winning full-size trucks.”

– Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, North America Senior Vice President, Mark Bosanac. 

The Surge concept is known as restomod, which means restoration modification. The compact Jeep concept reveals a polished spin-off of the late model CJ7. In addition, the CJ Surge’s internal combustion engine was replaced by the battery electric propulsion. Restomods are not exclusive to electric engines. As a matter of fact, enthusiasts have modified their vehicles with crate engines for decades. However, fans are excited to get a headstart on sustainability, so the demand for classic cars with EV technology is at an all-time high. Furthermore, Ford has initiated the prototype for a fully-electric restomod system, and it’s called the Eluminator. The Jeep CJ Surge is Mopar’s baby step toward all-electric mobility. 

The Jeep CJ7 initially includes an inline-six or V8 engine, but the Mopar vehicle is a compact SUV with a scalable 400-volt, 200-kW Electric Drive Module with four-wheel drive capabilities. Additionally, the powerplant receives support from a 24-module lithium-ion battery fitted inside a custom shell mounted in the back of the passenger cabin. Moreover, the manual transmission is replaced with the Wrangler JK center console and rotary shifter knob. 

Concerning performance numbers, neither Jeep nor Mopar has shared any information; they have yet to share if the CJ Surge concept will cause chaos on the market. So, let’s appreciate the jaw-dropping prototype and drool over the fact that the best has yet to come.

Gray Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe SUV Outside Rocks Mountains

Black Electric Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUV Horizon Water

Jeep Reveals Plans for its Electric SUVs

Black Electric Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUV Horizon Water

The legendary automaker of 4X4 capability, Jeep, recently announced that it would release four zero-emission vehicles for the US and Europe by 2025. In addition, Jeep laid out a comprehensive breakdown of its plans to become the leading distributor of electric SUVs worldwide. 

Jeep’s plans came to light via the automaker’s YouTube channel. In addition, the American automaker intends for 50 percent of its vehicle sales to become fully electric in the US by 2030. At the same time, Jeep intends for 100 percent of its European sales to become all-electric by that time. The Automakers of ‘Open Air Freedom’ erected plans that parallels Stellantis’s net-zero carbon emissions goal. 

“Driven by the success of our electrified 4xe portfolio in North America and Europe, we are designing and developing the most capable and sustainable Jeep SUVs to date, on our path to becoming the leading zero-emission SUV brand in the world. This is a forward-thinking strategy to help ensure millions of Jeep fans around the world continue to have a planet to explore, embrace and protect. Electrification is great for our brand, making it even more capable, exciting, sustainable and fun.”

-Christian Meunier, Jeep Brand CEO 

In the Jeep 4xe Day Freedom is Electric video, the automaker debuted images of two all-electric SUVs: the all-new Jeep Recon and Wagoneer, AKA the Wagoneer S. Both SUVs will arrive in the US and other countries. But most importantly, the American automaker subtly confirmed the launch of the all-new Avenger headed for Europe in early 2023. 

No More 4×4, Welcome to 4xe

There’s no stopping growth, and Jeep continues to evolve thanks to its 4xe portfolio scattered worldwide. In addition, the American automaker enriches its iconic 4×4 capability through electrification and technology. Moreover, although current plans focus more on the American and European markets, Jeep will release its intentions specific to other regions later. 

“Today we shared only a glimpse of our new portfolio of all-electric SUVs, providing tangible evidence of what is to come in the next 24 months and why we say that 4xe is the new 4×4. This powerful combination of Jeep design, legendary 4×4 capability and electrification will reshape the SUV market, allowing more customers in more countries and in more segments to join us on our path toward Zero Emission Freedom.”

Purple Jeep Wrangler SUV Green Mountains

Looking for a Fuel-Efficient Off-Roader? Look No Further Than the 2023 Jeep Wrangler

Purple Jeep Wrangler SUV Green Mountains

No one, not even an opposing contender, can deny the Jeep Wrangler’s dominion. However, the legendary off-road automaker isn’t ashamed to admit its fuel efficiency and performance flaws at higher RPMs. There’s so much life inside the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four and 3.6 naturally-aspirated V6 engine, but both engines lack spirit. Fortunately, Jeep worked vigorously to correct those flaws, resulting in a more capable 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine. As a result, the Jeep Wrangler JL series makes history as the first fitted factory diesel engine. 

The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine is the best diesel engine the Wrangler has ever inherited, but other V6 engines reveal themselves inferior. When the EcoDiesel engine pairs with the Wrangler’s mechanical hardware, it creates the perfect vehicle enthusiasts only dream of; here’s why. 

For the US, the Jeep Wrangler ranger is available with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine for every trim on the four-door Unlimited. For the standard transmission, the EcoDiesel V6 includes an 8-speed automatic gearbox which yields 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. 

Jeep Wrangler SUV Interior

Why is the 3.0-Liter EcoDiesel-Powered Wrangler an Excellent Vehicle 

As the world transitions full-speed to sustainability, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel provides another reason why a slow and steady transformation through diesel engines also deserves some quality time. The Wrangler’s FCA engine employs a water-cooled VGT turbocharging system and low-friction bearings for higher fuel efficiency. Other fuel enhancements for the diesel-Wrangler’s fuel efficiency include:

  • The dual-loop EGR (exhaust gas recirculation).
  • The dual vacuum pump system.
  • A two-piece oil sump. 

The 3.0 Liter EcoDiesel doesn’t rest there; the Diesel engine also inherits modified cylinder head intake ports for an increased flow capacity and swirl. Additionally, the pistons were reconstructed with slimmer rings and low-friction carbon coating on the pins. The new pistons and rings ensure that the Jeep SUV maintains fewer power losses and high performance. 

Even though the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 remains a resilient off-roader with its 6.4-liter Hemi V8, the Wrangler’s Unlimited trim offers the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel ideal for performance and economy. Pricing for the diesel Wrangler begins at $40,000. Although pricing may appeal as hefty, this is an exceptional value compared to the Jeep SUVs struggling contenders. Off-road capability infused with fuel efficiency and loads of torque makes for the market’s best diesel SUV to date.
