The 2017 Jeep Compass was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick and that’s a great title to earn. This achievement reaffirms that the Jeep Compass is a safe and reliable CUV option. The 2017 Compass is equipped with a variety of standard features and there are plenty of advanced safety features for buyers to add on to a Compass. Check out some of the many top safety features below!
- ParkSense + ParkView: Both of these systems allow for ease when parking. The ParkView Backup camera comes standard on all 2018 Jeep Compass trims. This system provides the driver a view of behind their vehicle via the UConnect touchscreen whenever the car is in reverse. The ParkSense system alerts the drivers when they are too close to another vehicle or object when parking, so it significantly reduces accidents that occur when drivers are backing up or parking.
- Hill Start + Hill Descent: Hill Start Control comes standard with all trims, and Hill Descent is an option (standard on the Jeep Compass Trailhawk). Both of these system help the vehicle go up or down steep angles with ease.

For the eighth year in a row the Jeep Wrangler has won the “Hottest 4X4 SUV” award at SEMA in Las Vegas. Way to go Jeep! SEMA (Speciality Equipment Market Association) is an annual event which consists of over 6,300 companies ranging from auto aftermarket manufacturers, car dealers, media, retailers, original equipment manufacturers and the list goes on.
SEMA provides much more than a show each year, but education, industry publication, business-to-business marketing events, professional development in the industry and much more. With that being said, winning an award at the show is prestigious to begin with, but eight years in a row? That just shows how much the Jeep brand run the 4X4 market.

The new next generation Wrangler design, the Wrangler JL, will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in Decemeber. We speculated about the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL before, but since it’s getting closer to its official debut, more and more details are starting to come out and we are excited to learn all of the details. Here’s what we know so far.
The new Wrangler JL has more available options that allow consumers to get a Jeep Wrangler that has all of the features and capabilities they need and want. Among some of the new options to the Wrangler JL is the availability of a second engine. The new Wrangler JL will be available with the same 3.6-liter V6 engine that was standard on the Wrangler JK, and there will also be an available smaller turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. Based off a leaked Jeep Wrangler JK Owner’s Manual, various publications have speculated that the new engine could also mean that the new Wrangler JL might be available with a mild hybrid system.
The new Jeep Wrangler JL will be available with a two-door and a four-door design, but there are expected to be some changes made to the roof options and we are not sure which roof options are definite, but there are three roof options discussed, a removable soft-top, a removable hardtop and a power sliding hard top. The power sliding hard top would be a great addition to Jeepers that want a more convenient way to open up the Wrangler roof.
Like many other FCA models, the Wrangler JL is expected to be available with the updated Uconnect system, Uconnect 4.0. Uconnect 4.0 includes access to Android Auto, Apple CarPlay as well as many other ways for users to stay connected while in their vehicle.
