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. The biggest secret to its success isn’t only the ability of personalization, or its serious off-road chops, it’s actually the vehicle’s ability to evolve alongside its fanbase without disturbing the features and aesthetics that make a Jeep Wrangler. 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. According to some recent comments by a  distinguished Jeep executive, an all-electric Wrangler is nothing to fear.  [click to continue…]

The Jeep Wrangler Works Hard to Reduce its Environmental Footprint

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) continues on its quest to reduce its environmental footprint by monitoring and reducing the environmental impact of its vehicles. The automaker just completed its latest Global Warming Potential (GWP) analysis and it turns out the latest-generation Jeep Wrangler is the real winner here. When compared to the previous-generation Wrangler model, the all-new and redesigned Wrangler measured a GWP that’s 15 percent lower. “This is the outcome we expect when we launch a new vehicle. In all our processes, the mitigation of environmental impact is a baked-in consideration,” said Mitch Clauw, FCA Vice President and Head of Global Pre-Programs and Program Management.  [click to continue…]

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…]

Next-Generation Jeep Grand Cherokee Readies for Its Debut

When it comes to automotive experts, they all tend to have that very same “if it ain’t broke…” outlook, especially when it comes to successful vehicles that haven’t updated generations for some time. The Jeep Grand Cherokee can be found under this specific category, as the current generation launched in 2010 — but, according to general consensus, the model doesn’t really need to be replaced . In fact, Jeep sold more than 242,000 units in the U.S. in 2019 — making 2019 not only the best year of this current generation’s run, but the best year for the nameplate as a whole since 2000. That all said, it’s been confirmed by Jeep that the next-generation Grand Cherokee is scheduled to launch in 2021.  [click to continue…]

2020 Jeep Wrangler Highlights

The Jeep Wrangler model last made a generation change for the 2019 model year, but that hasn’t stopped the brand from upgrading a few things here and there on the 2020 model. Of course, the Wrangler remains the iconic SUV it’s always been thanks to significant changes that take place under the hood instead of on the Wrangler’s exterior. Some of the most significant changes on the 2020 Wrangler model include the addition of an all-new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine, capable of producing 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. The EcoDiesel engine is only available on four-door Jeep Wrangler models.  [click to continue…]

020 Jeep Gladiator Named “Truck of the Year”

This isn’t the first time it happens, but it doesn’t make the accolade any less exciting — the 2020 Jeep Gladiator earned yet another distinction as the “Truck of the Year,” this time from the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press (RMAP). Earlier this year, the 2020 Gladiator was deemed the North American Truck of the Year — a distinct honor for the midsize pickup in its model launch year, along with many other honors.  [click to continue…]

Jeep Adds One More Trim to the Cherokee Lineup

Jeep recently announced it’s expanding the Jeep Cherokee lineup by adding one more trim — the Latitude Lux trim. The Cherokee’s top-tier trim, the Trailhawk trim, is the crown jewel of the lineup, but it rarely if ever makes the cut as the most popular one. That honor is reserved for the mid-tier Latitude trim, of which three different variations now exist: the Latitude, Latitude Plus, and now the Latitude Lux. Buyers looking for a mid-tier Jeep Cherokee with a dash of luxury can count on the new Cherokee Latitude Lux with its leather seats and other upscale standard features starting at a reasonable $31,395 (including the destination fee).  [click to continue…]

How the Jeep Gladiator Stands Out From the Crowd

After nearly a 30 year absence, Jeep reentered the mid-size pickup segment with the launch of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Although the segment may be a bit saturated with the likes of the Ford Ranger, Chevrolet Colorado, and Toyota Tacoma among others, the Jeep Gladiator stands out not only for its rugged looks, but also for its capability. Much more than what critics call a Wrangler with a pickup bed tacked on, the Jeep Gladiator fills a specific niche in the midsize pickup world. [click to continue…]
