Miami Lakes Automall Jeep Grand Cherokee L

Time to Accessorize the All-New 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L

“The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L presents a great opportunity for customization and personalization. Across the entire Jeep Grand Cherokee L lineup, we offer 75 factory-backed, quality-tested accessories.” -Mark Bosanac, Vice President of Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care 

Introduced in 1937, Mopar began its career as a source for antifreeze products. But by the muscle-mania era, Mopar looked to expand on curating performance instruments that enhanced speed and control. Mopar would later blossom into a zealous force in service, parts, and customer-care operations worldwide. Mopar currently distributes over 500 accessories in the Jeep lineup.    

Below is just a select few of Mopar accessories for the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L

New Side Steps 

The new side steps flow with the vehicle’s design. The side steps fasten with three mounting brackets plus stud plates on each side, and no rocket science is not required. Constructing the side step consists of black galvanized steel with stainless steel and chrome-flashed overlay. The steps are then powder coated for a lasting finish once the overlay is complete.

Roof-mount cargo basket 

The cargo basket provides that much-needed storage capacity when there’s not much room in the back from all the camping gear. The Canyon version roof basket stretches 44 inches long by 39 inches wide and a height of 6.5 inches premiering the Jeep logo. The maximum load capacity is 150 pounds. Keep that in mind when the in-laws start to agitate.

Roof-mount cross bars 

The black roof-rack crossbars are essential for the roof-mount cargo basket. The roof rack comes equipped with two per kit, and attachment is plausible on vehicles containing production side rails.

New 21-inch wheels 

The 21-inch wheels are granite crystal wheels featuring a five-spoke, triple-split design with the Jeep logo affixed in the centerpiece.  

Watersport Carrier 

The watersport carrier supports the transport of a kayak, surfboard, or even a sailboard. The carrier also includes multi-position cradles for flat or curved hulls. There are also latching and push-button nylon to contain cargo. The watersport carrier easily attaches to the roof-rack bars listed above. 

“The Jeep brand continues to shatter expectations of the full-size SUV segment with the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Now with a third row of seating for the first time, the newest iteration of the most awarded SUV ever is designed and engineered to deliver an unmatched combination of even more legendary 4×4 capability, superior on-road refinement, premium styling and craftsmanship inside and out.” -Vice President of Jeep Brand North America Jim Morrison

Miami Lakes Automall Jeep Gladiator Dual Door

Jeep Gladiator Joins the Dual-Door Group

Miami Lakes Automall Jeep Gladiator Dual Door

Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) unveiled its new half doors for the 2021 Jeep Gladiator. Offering a heightened sense of open-air freedom, the new half doors enable an already invigorating off-road experience.

“Open-air freedom is a hallmark of the Jeep brand. Following our introduction of new half doors for Jeep Wrangler earlier this year, we are now giving passionate Gladiator owners an opportunity to let even more of the outside in.” – Vice President of Jeep Brand North America, Jim Morrision 

Dual-Door Group 

The factory innovated, examined, and supported the new half-door option, enriching the Gladiator’s production style, protection, and passenger safety. Before the Dual-Door, The Jeep Gladiator received the highest rank in midsize pickup within the J.D. Power 2021 Initial Quality Study (IQS). As a result, Jeep wishes to sustain the heavyweight title with lower window ledges and half doors, providing heightened visibility when maneuvering on and off the road. 

Full doors and half doors are available from the new Jeep Gladiator Dual-Door Group on all Jeep Gladiator trims through the Mopar Custom Ship as part of new vehicle purchase. The weightless, heavy-duty aluminum half doors come packaged within the vehicle. 

The new half doors are compatible with these features: power mirrors, blind-spot detection, passive and nonpassive entry handles, and power locks. Alternate from full doors to half doors in mere minutes. Just utilize the existing hinge locations and wiring connections.   

Upper-Window 

The new upper window concocts a weather-tight seal that features zippered plastic windows for simple removal. The upper windows come in two different materials: base-model vinyl similar to the Gladiator’s soft-top roof or premium acrylic that resembles the pickup truck’s premium soft-top roof. In addition, an easy tool-free dual-guide post feature comes equipped for the installation and removal of each upper-door frame. 

“We work closely with our friends at Jeep to create and properly engineer new accessories. Across the entire Jeep vehicle lineup, we offer more than 500 quality-tested, factory-backed parts and accessories.” -North America Vice President, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care, Mark Bosanac

Duck Duck Jeep

Duck, Duck, Jeep! Owners Get Creative With Their Jeep Vehicles

Duck Duck Jeep

Looking at Jeep, drivers can drive any other vehicle owners to envy. Just look at the Jeep wave. The Jeep wave is more natural than riding a bike. When two Jeep owners cross paths, it’s as if watching two family members embrace.  Jeep’s loyalty program, the Jeep Wave Program, is commemorating camaraderie. But seasons come and go, and muck like Summer fading to Fall, so has the Jeep Wave, with Jeep Ducking. The 2021 Jeep Ducking is the new craze systemic to sweep owners.

How One Small Gesture Brought A Wave of Rubber Duck Jeep Influencers Everywhere

Allison Parliament had no intentions of changing the world, but evolving the world is precisely what the Jeep celebrity did. So one day in June, Allison took a trip from Clanton, Alabama, to Ontario. Allison needed gas, so she stopped her 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sahara at the nearest gas station in a small Canadian town. Allison added a rubber ducky to the Jeep vehicle parked by her and the rest was history.

One Quacker to Change the World

Once Allison left the store, another beautiful Jeep lay in the parking lot. Allison inscribed “Nice Jeep” on the ducky and placed it on the stranger’s vehicle, and the owner noticed. “(He) came out and laughed. Said, ‘You need to put this on social media. We figured it would go around town, make a few people happy, and then fade out.” -Allison

That was far from the case. Instead, the spontaneous moment became a social media sensation, with Allison gaining 10,000 followers on Facebook. The rubber duckies appeared on Wranglers, Liberties, and Cherokees populating the US, Canada, and Mexico. Eventually, the rubber ducky traveled to Germany, Japan, and over thirty other countries. Jeep took notice of the notoriety and incorporated the new Wrangler Rubicon with the hashtag Jeep Ducking. Jeep Ducking unraveled a global game that’s prevailed beyond the Jeep, incorporating Subaru and classic cars. 

“We don’t cap it off at just Jeep, Everybody needs kindness and I think the last year has shown that we need more kindness than normal.”-Allison 

Ducks for Education 

Allison observed the kindness she spread and wanted to go a lot deeper than that. So the Ducking creator created the non-profit “Ducky Grants,” educators can apply for funds upward of $100 to buy supplies for the classroom, which often comes from the educator’s own pockets. 

“So many teachers give so much more than they have, we decided, why don’t we turn what good we have into something better.” – Allison 

Ducky Grants sells t-shirts and decals, with all proceeds going to the grant program. With Allison making great preparations for the Duck Duck Jeep Invasion in Wetumpka, Alabama. The event serves a double motive: for the non-profit and reconstructing downtown, which was devastated by a tornado two years prior.  The Duck Duck Jeep Invasion runs from October 17th through the 19th, and tickets are available through the Jeep Ducking Facebook page. The Invasion will raffle off a $10,000 1995 Wrangler CJ with several mods, including a lifted suspension, to add more heat to the Flames.

Miami Lakes Auto Mall McIntosh

Jeep Chose McIntosh’s Audio System Here’s Why

Miami Lakes Auto Mall McIntosh

Audiophiles are obsessed with McIntosh audio systems, and it’s easy to understand why. But, unfortunately, the McIntosh name isn’t a household name. But first, understand that McIntosh keeps the home audio segment on lock. The New York-based company set out its journey to quality audio in 1949. Then, in the mid-’90s, McIntosh waltzed into the car audio arena, but unfortunately, it took two to tango. 

Automotive Transition 

Initially, McIntosh introduced the MX406 Audio Center Control. The Audio Control Center included AM/FM Tuner and a CD Player. In addition, the single-DIN unit incorporated speakers with the trademark McIntosh blue meters. 

The millennium strikes and McIntosh premiered the 200-watt McIntosh Audiophile Sound System for the third-generation Subaru Legacy and a Harley Davidson motorcycles system. By 2005-2006 the Ford GT received a customized audio system from McIntosh, but the relationship wasn’t lasting, and McIntosh retreated from the automotive audio industry. 

The Lessons of ‘Failure’

McIntosh set out a goal, arousing interest in the home audio arena. So they bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee and installed a reference audio system. Next, McIntosh took the Jeep to Detroit and demonstrated the home system to the Stellantis dream team: Executive automobile designer Ralph Gilles and Former CEO of Fiat Sergio Marchionne were captivated by the audio system. Both knew the McIntosh to be the perfect fit for the new Grand Cherokee L and the re-energized Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer

Miami Lakes Auto Mall McIntosh

McIntosh MX1375

Available solely on the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, the entertainment system appears standard on the Obsidian and Series III models and optional on the Series II models. With 1,375 watts over 24 channels to 23 speakers stationary to 16 locations in the cabin. There are also 6×9-inch woofers in each door, four 2-inch ceiling mount speakers, and a 12-inch dual-coil subwoofer in the cargo. 

McIntosh MX950 

The audio system comes standard in the Grand Wagoneer, premium trims of the Grand Cherokee L, and optional in the Wagoneer Series III. The entertainment system consists of  950 watts over 17 channels through 19 speakers in 12 different locations throughout the vehicle. The speakers in both setups illuminate with the McIntosh logo, the volume and tuning knobs with ribbed edging similar to the home systems. 

The Sound of Music 

Attention to detail was the mantra. Jeep and McIntosh enriched the vehicles with quality sound and a vigorous bass in every trim level, starting with the trim fasteners and isolators on the interior panels. Jeep engineers also created a “low noise floor,” acoustically laminated glass, active noise cancellation, with sound restraining pads enclosed in the doors. The low noise floor stipulates a vehicle that sounds consistently impeccable, whether 80 mph or at a complete standstill.

Miami Lakes Automall Jeep Tuscadero

New Tantalizing Exterior Color for Jeep Wrangler Models

Miami Lakes Automall Jeep Tuscadero

The 2021 Jeep Wranglers embraces with open arms the game-changing Tuscadero exterior paint color. 

The jubilantly new exterior color is a profoundly intense chromatic magenta that adds depth and appeal to the Jeep Wrangler palette.

The Tuscadero exterior becomes attainable for the first time on the Wrangler, and its availability includes the Sport, Sahara, Rubicon, 4xe, and 392 from now until November 2021.    

“With the Jeep brand celebrating its 80th anniversary, it’s the perfect time to launch a confident and custom color on the most iconic Jeep vehicle – both of which are designed to break the mold and stand out on the road and trails. What’s unique about colors like Tuscadero is that they draw a huge enthusiast following because they’re exciting, authentic and stand out, much like the Jeep community.” -Jeep Brand North American Vice President, Jim Morrison 

Again, please don’t wait until it’s too late, as the Tuscadero exterior paint option is only available for a limited time with an MSRP of $395. 

Miami Lakes Automall Jeep Gorilla Glass

 In July of 2021, Jeep unraveled the new Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) catalog. In addition, the performance catalog provides a look at Jeeps aftermarket accessories. The latest addition being Jeep’s Gorilla Glass.   

The Gorilla Glass replacement windshield is composed of chemical strengthener technology seen on every cell phone screen. 

There’s no need to stress any longer; Jeep Gladiators or Jeep Wranglers come equipped with Gorilla Glass directly from the factory without the aftermarket agitation. 

 “Customization is at the core of both Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator, and new colors and equipment allow the customer customization journey to begin at the factory…Bold colors like Gecko Green give our customers the chance to stand out on the trails, while the tough Gorilla Glass windshield will help them bring their Jeep home unscathed.” -Jeep Brand North American Vice President, Jim Morrison

Unfortunately, the Gecko Green exterior color is no longer available, but the Gorilla Glass MSRP is $95. 

The windshield is resilient, weightless, and invulnerable to destruction from off-road debris because of its ultra-thin inner ply carrying a 52% heftier outer ply. In addition, Gorilla Glass is tectonic for off-roaders as cracking a windshield increases substantially on those exhilarating trips.
