The Current-Generation Grand Cherokee Takes One Last Bow

Although rumors strongly suggested the debut of the next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee would happen sometime this year (2020), it appears that the ongoing pandemic threw a wrench in those plans. The current-generation Grand Cherokee is destined to soldier on for another model year as Jeep puts the finishing touches on its successor. Mopar Insiders reports that Jeep is planning a gracious send-off for the SUV with a one-of-a-kind 80th Anniversary Edition trim. If this is true, it would be on par with a previous trend Jeep established back in 2016 to celebrate the brand’s 75th anniversary with the Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition trim.  [click to continue…]

Jeep enthusiasts have been gunning for a V*-powered Wrangler in recent years, especially since the current-generation Jeep Wrangler has been so celebrated since it launched.

How an All-Electric Powertrain Could Power the Jeep Wrangler of the Future

The Jeep Wrangler is considered timeless, iconic, cool, effortless — sort of like James Bond.

A hybrid Jeep Wrangler is slated to debut sometime before the end of the year (2020), while the brand continues to expand its powertrain options with the addition of the eTorque mild-hybrid system and the most recent EcoDiesel engine options.

Jeep Looking to Expand its Desert-Rated Lineup

Historically, the top-tier Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has always been the undisputed king of off-road vehicles. However, the Jeep Gladiator Mojave, unveiled last year (2019), is calling the Wrangler Rubicon’s bluff. Not that the Gladiator Mojave is higher in the pecking order of off-road vehicles, but it’s got a different mission than the Wrangler. Although the Gladiator Mojave gives the Wrangler Rubicon a trim it cannot match, that’s all going to change very soon if the rumor mill is correct.  [click to continue…]
