2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk v. 2018 BMW X5 M

2018 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

There’s two things that most people when they think of luxury vehicles, tons of amenities and extreme performance. Two SUVs that have both of those features in spades are the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the BMW X5 M. Both SUVs have extreme horsepower and excellent features, but when it comes down to a comparison of performance, speed, towing capacity and features, many people are surprised by the results.

Performance

If you asked people which vehicle is faster, the more expensive luxury BMW SUV or the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, you’d probably hear a lot of people say the BMW X5, but that’s not the case. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk not only outperforms the BMW X5 in power and speed, but it outperforms all SUVs — the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the most powerful and quickest SUV on the market.

Under the hood of the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine, which is very similar to the engine that is in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. The engine produces 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque and all of that power gives the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk the ability to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and complete a quarter-mile in just 11.6 seconds. Also, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can hit a top speed of 180 mph.

The BMW X5 M is equipped with a 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine. The engine produces 567 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, which is powerful, but nowhere near as much power as the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The 2018 BMW X5 M goes from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds, completes a quarter-mile in 12.2 seconds and has a top-speed of 160 mph.

Both vehicles are equipped with all-wheel-drive, however, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has more towing power than the BMW X5 M. The Grand Cherokee has a maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds, and the BMW X5 has a maximum towing capacity of 5,952 pounds.

Interior

Both SUVs have high-end features that make the cabin comfortable, stylish and modern, but even though the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk isn’t made by a luxury manufacturer, it offers more luxurious features. Both vehicles feature leather seats and provide 36 cubic-feet of space for cargo, and heated front seats, but the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is also equipped with ventilated front seats and heated second-row seats, which is not offered on the BMW X5 M. The BMW X5 does have a larger touchscreen than the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk (10.4 inches versus 8.4 inches), and it comes standard with a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is available with a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

The price differences between the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the BMW X5 are also pretty extreme. Although the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is faster, tows more, is more powerful and has high-end luxury features, it is more affordable than the BMW X5 M. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a starting MSRP of $86,000 (plus destination fee), and the 2018 BMW X5 M has a starting MSRP of $101,700 (plus destination fee).

Jeep Wrangler Reported to Have Record-Breaking Monthly Sales, Again

Jeep-Wrangler-sales-best-30-years-miami-lakes-jeep-1

Looks like Jeep did something to get people’s attention with the introduction of the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL. Jeep recently reported that the Jeep Wrangler had the best sales month its ever had in April 2018, which is extremely impressive considering that the Wrangler has been produced for more than 30 years.

Not only is it impressive that April 2018 was a great month for the Wrangler, but this is the second consecutive month that the Wrangler’s sales have broken the all-time record for number of units sold in a month.The sales of the Wrangler were so excellent in April, the Jeep brand had a 20 percent sales increase for April 2018 in comparison to sales in April 2017.

While we can’t say we expected the redesigned Wrangler to be quite that popular, we did expect to see an increase in Wrangler sales at our store because the new Wrangler JL has it all. Jeep did a fabulous job keeping the Wrangler’s iconic style, but incorporating a lot of new convenience features.

Two areas where Jeep made excellent improvements to the Wrangler were with the addition of new exterior features and new engine options. The changes to exterior features include a mix of improvements to the vehicle’s aerodynamics as well as more user-friendly removable components, like the one-touch power retractable roof.

The new engine options on the Jeep Wrangler JL include an all-new mild-hybrid powertrain, an EcoDiesel engine option and the return of the 3.6-liter V6 engine. The new engine options give consumers a lot of variety that helps the rugged Jeep compete with the engine options that are available on most other mid-size Jeeps. The diesel option is a great option for buyers looking for improved fuel economy, in addition to a long-lasting engine and increased torque. The new mild-hybrid engine that features eTorque technology offers great power and the best fuel economy of all three engine options.

The redesign of the Jeep Wrangler JL was a pretty important step for the Jeep brand to make because it included a lot of modern changes to their most iconic model. So considering the fact that buyers are embracing those changes, it should be a signal to Jeep that consumers are concerned about fuel economy and convenience and their happy to invest in it.

Want to see how great the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is for yourself? Come by Miami Lakes Jeep to see our selection of Jeep Wrangler inventory. We can show and explain all of the new features to you and you can take a test drive as well! Come by and visit us, we are open seven days a week.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited Beats Out Other Mid-Size SUV Options

2019-Jeep-Cherokee-Limited-Comparison-Miami-Lakes-Jeep

The mid-size SUV market is one of the most competitive segments, and of all the models, the Jeep Cherokee Limited offers some of the best standard features. Jeep redesigned the Cherokee for the 2019 model year and it is quite impressive, and although it’s very new to the market, Miami Lakes Automall has a great selection of 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited models available. Not convinced its for you? Here are some of the standout features the Cherokee Limited offers that three other similarly midsize SUVs don’t.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited v. 2018 Toyota RAV4 XLE

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited comes standard with 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Nappa leather seats, and heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Unfortunately the Toyota RAV4 XLE doesn’t offer features that are quite as nice. The Toyota RAV4 XLE has 17-inch alloy wheels, a 6.1-inch touchscreen and it doesn’t feature Nappa leather seats.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited v. 2018 Chevy Equinox LT

The Jeep Cherokee Limited and Chevy Equinox have both recently been redesigned, and the Cherokee Limited definitely has more modern features. The Cherokee Limited has an 8/4-inch touchscreen, which is 1.4 inches bigger than the touchscreen offered in the Equinox LT. Additionally, the Cherokee Limited also has a power liftgate, park assist, and Nappa leather. The Chevy Equinox LT doesn’t have any of those features, and those are definitely pretty desirable for buyers that want an SUV that has a mix of luxury and tech.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited v. 2018 Honda CR-V LX

The Honda CR-V LX is definitely a very popular mid-size SUV, but that doesn’t mean it is the best out there. The Honda CR-V is equipped with LED daytime running lamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, a remote entry system, and a 5-inch color LCD screen, which are fairly average features. The Jeep Cherokee Limited has a larger touch screen, larger wheels, a remote entry system, a rearview camera with park assist. The Cherokee Limited also has Nappa leather seats, front heated seats and a heated steering wheel, which means that of these three mid-sized SUVs, the Cherokee Limited is the only option that comes standard with those seating features.

What Other Features Does the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited Have?

In addition to all of the features above, the Jeep Cherokee Limited comes standard with a 2.4-liter I4 MultiAir engine, which gives the Cherokee Limited a great balance between power and fuel economy. The Cherokee Limited has excellent convenience features including several power outlets that make it easy for drivers and passengers to keep their devices charged, cargo tie down loops, which help keep items secure in the trunk, a full-length floor console and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.  In addition to the 8.4-inch touchscreen, the Cherokee Limited also has Uconnect 4, which is the most advanced and up-to-date infotainment system offered by FCA. Uconnect 4 allows drivers to control a number of car functions and also provides access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a number of other apps.


Miami Lakes Automall is the place to go if you are looking for a new Jeep model, including the newest 2019 Jeep Cherokee!

Jeep Changed the Wrangler Lineup for All-New Wrangler JL

2018-Jeep-Wrangler-JL-Trims-Lineup-Miami-Lakes-Jeep

Jeep introduced the all-new next-generation 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL in late 2017 and the new model included a lot of changes to the Wrangler’s features and lineup. While we have discussed the Wrangler JL’s new features a few times, we haven’t discussed all the changes made to the Wrangler JL lineup, so here are the updates.

Trims

The Wrangler JK (the generation prior to the Wrangler JL) lineup consisted of several trims, and although the number of trims gave consumers a lot of options, some consumers felt overwhelmed trying to determine the differences from trim to trim. To avoid confusion, Jeep reduced the Wrangler JL trim lineup to just four different trims, and each of the trims is also available with upgrades and options to give consumers more variety when designing their new Wrangler.

The new trims include the Wrangler Sport, Sport S, Rubicon and Sahara trims. The Wrangler Sport, Sport S, and Rubicon trims are available with a two-door or four-door Wrangler, and the Sahara is only available with a four-door model.

Models

Another change to the lineup that Jeep made to help reduce confusion is that four-door and two-door Wrangler models are both called “Wrangler.” Previously, Jeep called four-door models the “Wrangler Unlimited” and two-door models the “Wrangler,” but a lot of consumers referred to both the four-door and two-door models as a “Wrangler” anyways.  

Ground Clearances

Another major change to the lineup is that now all Wrangler trims have the same industry-leading ground clearance and off-road angles. The new ground clearances and angles are a ground clearance of 10.9 inches, a departure angle of 37 degrees, an approach angle of 44 degrees and a breakover angle of 27.8 degrees. Additionally, all Wrangler trims have water fording capabilities of up to 30 inches.

2018 Jeep Wrangler JL

The Jeep Wrangler JL is the most advanced and most capable Wrangler ever and the changes made to the lineup will definitely be appreciated by consumers. Other highlights of the new Wrangler JL include the addition of two engine options, a 270-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine, and two transmission options, a six-speed manual transmission and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Wrangler JL also has new roof options, including a power sliding option, as well as an upgraded Uconnect system, which provides enhanced entertainment options.

Want to see all of the awesome new traits on the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL, come to Miami Lakes Jeep. We have a large new state-of-the-art building and a huge selection of Jeep Wrangler models.

Trims

The all-new 2019 Jeep Cherokee lineup consists of six different trims, the Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Overland, Trailhawk and the Trailhawk Elite, which is the newest trim to join the lineup. The Cherokee Trailhawk and Trailhawk Elite are only available with four-wheel-drive, but the other four Cherokee models are available with front-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive.

Engines

The 3.2L engine produces 271 horsepower 239 lb-ft of torque and it comes standard on the Cherokee Limited, Cherokee Trailhawk and Cherokee Trailhawk Elite, but it is an available option on other Cherokee models. The 3.2L gives the Jeep Cherokee a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds.

The newest engine on the lineup is the 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine and it is powerful and a little more “green” than the other engines. The 2.0L engine produces 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque and it features engine stop-start technology, which improves fuel economy and reduces the amount of greenhouse gases emitted. The 2.0L engine is an available upgrade on all trims, except the Cherokee Latitude.

Ground Clearance

Now that Jeep has added the specs of the entire Jeep Cherokee lineup to their website, we know the departure angle, approach angle and breakover angle of all Cherokee trims. The Cherokee Trailhawk and Cherokee Trailhawk Elite have a ground clearance of 8.7 inches, a 29.9-degree approach angle, a 22.9-degree breakover angle and a 32.2-degree departure angle.

Gadgets for Your Vehicle for Camping Trips

Jeep-Miami-Lakes-Automall

Not every vehicle comes with everything they drivers want or need for a camping trip. When you don’t find what you’re looking for, there’s options to make your upcoming camping trips even better. We’ll give you suggestions on what car gadgets and items will make your vehicle or camping experience enhanced, so before your trip you can ensure you’ll have a great time. Let’s take a look!

Heavy-Duty 12-Volt Car Extension Cord Don’t Leave Home Without It

Need to power something in the wild? Extension cord might make things easier which you can find them online ranging up to 12 feet long or more. Simply plug in your heavy-duty cable into your vehicle’s 12-volt outlet, (which can generate up to 180 watts or 15 amps) and you’ll be able to power any device. From making your camping experience a little less rustic and a little more modern, you can keep anything you need charged. If you need to power your hair blower to inflate your air mattresses, or just to use a hair dryer, we recommend including at least one extension card in your vehicle. You can find this item online for less than $13.

Roof Rack

Free up some precious space inside your vehicle with a roof rack. You can easily get around 20 cubic feet of extra space in your vehicle with the right roof rack. As long as the items are tied down properly and don’t weigh too much. Just ensure that there’s no chance what you put on your roof rack could fall off. A roof rack system also looks cool and can make the difference between having comfortable room in your interior or not. They are relatively inexpensive as well and your passengers will thank you.

Flash Light

If you think your iPhone or Android smartphone light is strong enough, then you’re obviously not thinking about the wildlife (you’ll want more light) or the battery life of your device (you’ll want more of that, too). Having extra batteries is also important. You’ll feel better at night with one or two or a battery-powered lantern. Considering how cheap flashlights are, it’s something you should have on any camping trip.

Car Vent Clips

After a day of being outside or more, you’ll want to have your vehicle smell great since you and your guests probably won’t. Make the drive home easier with a fresh car vent clip, plus they are also cheap. You won’t have to pay more than $4 for a good one. You want to enjoy the view of nature, not smell like it. Best investment on the list!

Emergency Roadside Kit

Included in every first aid emergency kit is bandages, alcohol wipes, pain medicine and adhesive bandages. There’s no reason to not have one with your vehicle should any cuts or scrapes happen to someone on your camping trip. Having to leave your campsite for a simple cut shouldn’t ever happen, be sure to be prepared as this is another cheap item to own that makes a world of difference when needed.

Car Organizer

If you’re traveling with kids, this item is perfect for ensuring nothing is lost. Simply hook one up to the back of your passenger or driver side seat. Car organizers provide space for books, Blu-Rays, iPads, napkins, snacks and more. Prevent distractions for you and your passengers by using a car organizer, which can range from $25 to $60 depending on what style you go with.

The Right Vehicle For Your Road Trip

There’s no doubt that having the right vehicle is even more important the supplies. With a brand like Jeep, you’ll be able to go on an adventure almost right away when you go with the ultimate Jeep off road vehicle that makes camping trips a breeze in the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Complete with an engine that cranks out 707 horsepower, high performance powertrain and skid plates to protect the undercarriage of your Jeep, you won’t want to end your camping trip!

Expect to find the right vehicle for your upcoming camping trip with the professionals at Miami Lakes Automall. We have a entire Jeep catalog of new and pre-owned Jeep vehicles that will make your summer camping adventures extraordinary!

Jeep Grand Cherokee 4×4 Systems + Other Off-Road Features

2018-Jeep-GrandCherokee-Miami-Lakes-Automall

What can’t a Jeep 4×4 vehicle accomplish? From gravel to snow, few terrains can stop a properly equipped 4×4 Jeep model going where a driver wants. The 2018 Jeep 4×4 lineup includes the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Compass, Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Jeep Renegade and Jeep Cherokee and our focus today is on the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee and their 4×4 systems.

Each Jeep Grand Cherokee has different 4×4 systems to choose from, ranging from strong transfer cases to provide massive amounts of horsepower and torque to advanced 4×4 systems that deliver superior all-weather capabilities as they transfer remarkable weather capability by transferring up to 100% of available torque to a single rear wheel if needed.

Under bad conditions or dealing with rocky terrain through streams, drivers can test out and see the strengths and abilities of a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4×4. Tested and durable, this is what separates the 4x4s offered by the Jeep brand from their competition.

Mud and Proper Handling

Muddy conditions won’t stop your Jeep from navigating successfully. While mud can be deceptive, experienced drivers know they can stop their vehicle to check the depth of the trail ahead and see, but luckily with Jeep 4×4 vehicles mud shouldn’t be much of a problem. With sealed electrical systems and a high air intake, there won’t be much concern once you know the path ahead. We recommend also learning what is best for your vehicle in regards to handling. To maintain momentum and proper speed when in mud, let the tires work easier with a higher gear to control your vehicle.

Traction Behind Every 4×4

Driving over paved roads is definitely easier than offroad trails, but there’s no stopping the weather. With heavy rain, heavy black ice or snow, hydroplaning is a real threat. But, the engineers at Jeep have build robust suspensions that will give you as the driver a highly capable vehicle to handle what roads you’re on.

Traction on unpaved roads is even more impressive when you ride in a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4×4. Electronic brake differentials, gas shocks, traction control, electronic stability control are built to help Jeep 4×4 owners maintain control. There’s no comparison to having a powerful, strong Jeep to handle uneven terrain. True 4-Low modes and tow hooks will provide additional help when going over rocky conditions.

Snowy Conditions  

Anti-lock brakes and traction control provides remarkable control with every 2018 Jeep 4×4. If you’re dealing with snow, slick ice or sleet, there’s a good chance you might not want to drive over this terrain. With proper tires and trust in your handling in your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4×4, drivers can handle the extreme conditions of snow.

Sandy Conditions

Even sand can bring about problems for experienced Jeep drivers. Traction can be an issue, but not if you follow the guidelines offered by Jeep. Lowering your tires air pressure by 10-12 pounds will greatly improve your vehicle’s traction when moving over sand.

Additional Recommendations

It’s a smart choice to add available skid plates for undercarriage protection to ensure your 2018 Jeep can stay further protected against rocks, stones, dangerous terrain and unforeseen objects on your path.

Where To Find Your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4×4

Our professional staff at Miami Lakes Automall is knowledgeable, courteous and can’t wait to help you take home your very own Jeep.If you’re not in the market for a new vehicle, but have any vehicle problems you’d like help with, don’t wait to make the right choice.

Quick and Easy Ways to Upgrade Your New Jeep

2018-jeep-wrangler-jl-rubicon-Miami-Lakes-Automall

Jeep modifications are a right of passage for Jeep owners, especially Jeep Wrangler owners, who embrace the culture and passion all Jeep owners have. From a love of adventure to adopting a unique style made possible by Jeep vehicles accessible body and exteriors, we’re going to mention a few ideas to spice up your Jeep life.

There’s many, many modifications, so regardless of your price range, there’s cheap or expensive Jeep mods depends on your preference. We’ll start with the least expensive modifications and work our way up to the more expensive Jeep modifications we’d recommend.

So, You Want to Go On An Adventure?

Grab Handles

Switch up your Jeep’s look instantly with new and more supportive Jeep grip handles. An easy fix to help passengers leave or enter your vehicle and give a sporty look to your Jeep. For as low as $12 up to $50, you can find various new Jeep grab handles to make your vehicle stand out.

Cold Air Intake

For an increased horsepower, a cold air intake is a great way to achieve more horsepower. Cold air intakes vacuum cooler air directly into the engine, which allows the engine to produce more horsepower, and that makes it easier for a Jeep to perform off-road, no matter what the task may be. As far as performance mods go, adding a cold air intake is a cheaper option than most and parts typically range from $200-500.

Rock Sliders + Undercarriage Protection

Knowing what your Jeep vehicle is capable of takes time and experience driving on various terrains and seasons passing. A great way to protect your vehicle, regardless of your experience driving, is a rock slider or differential covers.

Rock Sliders (sometimes called rock guards) are a great modifications as they act like an armor, a protective barrier between your vehicle any rock or obstacle that might be under your Jeep. They are connected to the vehicle’s chassis and their true function is to protect door sills and door bottoms. Adding on a rock slider can save you from a potential jam you might find yourself in otherwise and cost anywhere from under $200 to $375.

Many drivers also like to add skid plates to ensure further safety of their vehicle. Since rocks are so destructive, as can be large items on trails that might move or scrap your undercarriage, it’s important to use a cover or provide protection.

New Tires + Lift Kit

Among the favorite options to upgrade, especially for those looking to take their Jeep Wrangler out for a spin on any terrain and go practically anywhere offroading would be a lift kit and replacing the standard tires with larger tires. This entire job can range from $900 to a couple thousand dollars. If you want to have your Jeep vehicle with the proper ground clearance, this is the first step towards making sure your Jeep is capable with whatever you throw at it, or underneath it.

Lift kits are especially important for being able to go over rocks because rock crawling can result in the vehicle’s undercarriage being damaged by uneven terrain or debris. Consider this the first step to take before all other because lifting a Jeep is critical for all Jeep Wrangler owners.

Where Your Adventure Begins

Whether you need a Mopar parts, a modification to be taken care of or need simple repairs, look to your friends and professional staff at Miami Lakes Automall. Our service department will be able to make your Jeep upgrades happen with a simple appointment you can make right here.

If you’re looking for a new Jeep, want a pre-owned Jeep or just want to know more about driving one, stop by. Test drive a new 2018 Jeep Wrangler and we’ll help you with any buying, leasing or trade-in offers. If you just want to sell your vehicle, we can work with you as well.
