Orange Jeep CJ Surge EV Black SUV

Jeep CJ Surge Makes a Grand Debut at SEMA 2022

Orange Jeep CJ Surge EV Black SUV

The 2022 Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) (November 1st-4th, 2022) kicked off last Monday in Las Vegas, NV. Mopar and Stellantis OEM accessory division premiered a dynamic trio of concept vehicles. Yet, the catalyst was the electrified Jeep CJ. But, the best has yet to come, ladies and gents, the battery electric technology inside the CJ may act as a restomod for the revival of classic American muscle cars. 

“The Jeep CJ Surge concept explores a future zero-emission propulsion system kit and supports the Jeep brand’s mission to become the leading electrified SUV brand in the world. Separately, our Ram 1500 Backcountry X and TRX Gold Shot concepts showcase a truckload of innovative Mopar accessories for our award-winning full-size trucks.”

– Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, North America Senior Vice President, Mark Bosanac. 

The Surge concept is known as restomod, which means restoration modification. The compact Jeep concept reveals a polished spin-off of the late model CJ7. In addition, the CJ Surge’s internal combustion engine was replaced by the battery electric propulsion. Restomods are not exclusive to electric engines. As a matter of fact, enthusiasts have modified their vehicles with crate engines for decades. However, fans are excited to get a headstart on sustainability, so the demand for classic cars with EV technology is at an all-time high. Furthermore, Ford has initiated the prototype for a fully-electric restomod system, and it’s called the Eluminator. The Jeep CJ Surge is Mopar’s baby step toward all-electric mobility. 

The Jeep CJ7 initially includes an inline-six or V8 engine, but the Mopar vehicle is a compact SUV with a scalable 400-volt, 200-kW Electric Drive Module with four-wheel drive capabilities. Additionally, the powerplant receives support from a 24-module lithium-ion battery fitted inside a custom shell mounted in the back of the passenger cabin. Moreover, the manual transmission is replaced with the Wrangler JK center console and rotary shifter knob. 

Concerning performance numbers, neither Jeep nor Mopar has shared any information; they have yet to share if the CJ Surge concept will cause chaos on the market. So, let’s appreciate the jaw-dropping prototype and drool over the fact that the best has yet to come.

Jeep Brand Wins ‘Best SUV Lineup’ for the Second Year in a Row

Red Jeep Wagoneer in Water

Not a single person can disagree with the fact that Jeep is known for its legendary 4×4 capability. With over 80 years of experience, it’s evident why the American automaker earned Newsweek’s 2022 ‘Best SUV Lineup’ for the second consecutive year. Furthermore, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Wagoneer, and Grand Wagoneer earned top honors in their competing categories. 

“The Jeep brand’s newest SUV models blend high-class, stylish interiors with the latest comfort and convenience features while never compromising on technology or off-road prowess. With new, bar-raising models, including fresh electrified 4xe options, Jeep was the obvious choice for Best SUV Lineup this year.” 

-Autos at Newsweek, Senior Editor, Eileen Falkenberg-Hull 
  • The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer earned the Best Premium SUV award because of its seating capacity with room for eight passengers and unparalleled towing capabilities. 

“To be recognized by Newsweek that the Jeep brand is the ‘best SUV brand’ for two years in a row is a testament to what we set out to do every day – deliver the best, most capable SUVs. From the new, electrified Wrangler 4xe and Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, to the first-ever three-row Grand Cherokee L, the Compass, Renegade, Cherokee, Gladiator, and the all-new premium extension with the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, the Jeep brand offers a capable and rewarding SUV for every customer.”  

-Head of Jeep Brand North America, Senior Vice President, Jim Morrison 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee, Wagoneer, and Grand Wagoneer feature the legendary automaker’s award-winning Uconnect 5 infotainment system. In addition, the system is Stellantis’s most sophisticated in-car technology with five-times-faster operating speeds, new content, and better customization. 

During the evaluation process, the Newsweek staff evaluated vehicle features and specifications. The vehicle features and specifications accounted for 75% of the judges’ scores, while the remaining 25% came from first impressions. Moreover, once vehicle scores were averaged, it rendered a product line score which then determined that the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Wagoneer, and Grand Wagoneer were the best in their respective categories. Three cheers for the best.

Jeep Recon Off-Road Rocks Mountaiins

Jeep Compass and Renegade to Deliver Electric Power

Jeep Recon Off-Road Rocks Mountaiins

The legends of 4×4 capability take momentous stride in a different arena. Jeep is close to completing its plug-in hybrids (PHEV), and the automaker’s ready to pursue its commitment to battery-electric vehicles (BEV). Moreover, the Wrangler-makers will bring some family favorites to the electric segment. 

America’s favorite compact SUV, the Jeep Renegade, which came to be in 2014, will transition to the STLA small platform before 2024 ends and propel solely through electric power. Likewise, the Jeep Compass will assume a similar approach, acquiring an STLA medium platform for its all-electric powertrain. Additionally, the Compass will grow in size to take over the compact SUV segment. 

So Jeep’s 2030 EV goal is to have an entire lineup full of electric vehicles for its European market and 50 percent for the US. So expect to see petrol engines for a while. However, Stellantis assures that its STLA small vehicle platforms will support battery capacities ranging from 37-82 kWh for a range of 310 miles. Furthermore, the battery will be propelled by an electric motor producing 70kW and mated with a 400V electrical architecture. 

The STLA medium frame will hold a battery capacity of 87-104 kWh for a maximum range of up to 430 miles. In addition, Stellantis intends to offer electric motors that forge between 125kW and 180kW or the more affirming 150-330kW electric motors that will support the STLA large architecture. 

The first Jeep vehicle to take zero-emission strides will be the 2023 Avenger, falling into the family lineup underneath the Renegade. Further, the Jeep Renegade will make history by being the first to employ the Stellantis group platform instead of the former parent, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. 

By 2025, Jeep promised to have four of its vehicles actively sustaining the environment; the Avenger, Recon, and Wagoneer S were assigned to tackle that goal. Smart enough to notice there are only three? The fourth vehicle will replace the Jeep Cherokee and utilize the STLA large architecture.

Black Electric Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUV Horizon Water

Jeep Reveals Plans for its Electric SUVs

Black Electric Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUV Horizon Water

The legendary automaker of 4X4 capability, Jeep, recently announced that it would release four zero-emission vehicles for the US and Europe by 2025. In addition, Jeep laid out a comprehensive breakdown of its plans to become the leading distributor of electric SUVs worldwide. 

Jeep’s plans came to light via the automaker’s YouTube channel. In addition, the American automaker intends for 50 percent of its vehicle sales to become fully electric in the US by 2030. At the same time, Jeep intends for 100 percent of its European sales to become all-electric by that time. The Automakers of ‘Open Air Freedom’ erected plans that parallels Stellantis’s net-zero carbon emissions goal. 

“Driven by the success of our electrified 4xe portfolio in North America and Europe, we are designing and developing the most capable and sustainable Jeep SUVs to date, on our path to becoming the leading zero-emission SUV brand in the world. This is a forward-thinking strategy to help ensure millions of Jeep fans around the world continue to have a planet to explore, embrace and protect. Electrification is great for our brand, making it even more capable, exciting, sustainable and fun.”

-Christian Meunier, Jeep Brand CEO 

In the Jeep 4xe Day Freedom is Electric video, the automaker debuted images of two all-electric SUVs: the all-new Jeep Recon and Wagoneer, AKA the Wagoneer S. Both SUVs will arrive in the US and other countries. But most importantly, the American automaker subtly confirmed the launch of the all-new Avenger headed for Europe in early 2023. 

No More 4×4, Welcome to 4xe

There’s no stopping growth, and Jeep continues to evolve thanks to its 4xe portfolio scattered worldwide. In addition, the American automaker enriches its iconic 4×4 capability through electrification and technology. Moreover, although current plans focus more on the American and European markets, Jeep will release its intentions specific to other regions later. 

“Today we shared only a glimpse of our new portfolio of all-electric SUVs, providing tangible evidence of what is to come in the next 24 months and why we say that 4xe is the new 4×4. This powerful combination of Jeep design, legendary 4×4 capability and electrification will reshape the SUV market, allowing more customers in more countries and in more segments to join us on our path toward Zero Emission Freedom.”

Purple Jeep Wrangler SUV Green Mountains

Looking for a Fuel-Efficient Off-Roader? Look No Further Than the 2023 Jeep Wrangler

Purple Jeep Wrangler SUV Green Mountains

No one, not even an opposing contender, can deny the Jeep Wrangler’s dominion. However, the legendary off-road automaker isn’t ashamed to admit its fuel efficiency and performance flaws at higher RPMs. There’s so much life inside the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four and 3.6 naturally-aspirated V6 engine, but both engines lack spirit. Fortunately, Jeep worked vigorously to correct those flaws, resulting in a more capable 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine. As a result, the Jeep Wrangler JL series makes history as the first fitted factory diesel engine. 

The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine is the best diesel engine the Wrangler has ever inherited, but other V6 engines reveal themselves inferior. When the EcoDiesel engine pairs with the Wrangler’s mechanical hardware, it creates the perfect vehicle enthusiasts only dream of; here’s why. 

For the US, the Jeep Wrangler ranger is available with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine for every trim on the four-door Unlimited. For the standard transmission, the EcoDiesel V6 includes an 8-speed automatic gearbox which yields 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. 

Jeep Wrangler SUV Interior

Why is the 3.0-Liter EcoDiesel-Powered Wrangler an Excellent Vehicle 

As the world transitions full-speed to sustainability, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel provides another reason why a slow and steady transformation through diesel engines also deserves some quality time. The Wrangler’s FCA engine employs a water-cooled VGT turbocharging system and low-friction bearings for higher fuel efficiency. Other fuel enhancements for the diesel-Wrangler’s fuel efficiency include:

  • The dual-loop EGR (exhaust gas recirculation).
  • The dual vacuum pump system.
  • A two-piece oil sump. 

The 3.0 Liter EcoDiesel doesn’t rest there; the Diesel engine also inherits modified cylinder head intake ports for an increased flow capacity and swirl. Additionally, the pistons were reconstructed with slimmer rings and low-friction carbon coating on the pins. The new pistons and rings ensure that the Jeep SUV maintains fewer power losses and high performance. 

Even though the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 remains a resilient off-roader with its 6.4-liter Hemi V8, the Wrangler’s Unlimited trim offers the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel ideal for performance and economy. Pricing for the diesel Wrangler begins at $40,000. Although pricing may appeal as hefty, this is an exceptional value compared to the Jeep SUVs struggling contenders. Off-road capability infused with fuel efficiency and loads of torque makes for the market’s best diesel SUV to date.

Jeep Gladiator Silver Pickup

What’s in Store for the 2023 Jeep Gladiator?

Jeep Gladiator Silver Pickup

When Jeep released the Gladiator pickup, enthusiasts said: “it’s about time.” To infuse Jeep’s legendary minted heritage of ruggedness, the automaker’s distinctive design, the “Go Anywhere, Do Anything” attitude, with endless functionality and utility inside one pickup, proves why everyone loves Jeep. 

Underneath the hood of the 2023 Jeep Gladiator is the optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with engine stop-start (ESS) and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine with ESS. The Gladiator includes a versatile box, a body-on-frame design, a front and rear five-link suspension system, solid axles, and electronic lockers. The Jeep Gladiator is in rare company because the midsize truck is one of few to offer a six-speed manual transmission. The Gladiator is more than capable of tackling the demands of an active lifestyle. Furthermore, the Jeep pickup delivers the freedom of the open-air experience synonymous with the automaker’s unique appeal. 

Inside the 23’ Gladiator is a gang of technology features. For instance, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standardly equipped. However, our favorite Gladiator features come from the safety department. The Jeep pickup’s safety features include Blind-Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, adaptive cruise control, and Forward Collision Warning-Plus. The Jeep Gladiator encompasses some of the best features of the midsize pickup segment, not to mention the truck’s impeccable off-road capability. 

What’s New for 2023? 

For 2023, the Jeep Gladiator premiers the special edition Freedom package. Additionally, the Freedom special edition offers custom capability enrichments and special exterior features. Some Freedom features to look forward to include Oscar Mike badging on the rear tailgate, LED headlamps and fog lamps, body-color fender flares, winch-capable steel front and rear bumpers, steel rock rails, black wheels, black accents, and an American flag decal along the vehicle’s side. Furthermore, the Jeep Gladiator Freedom Special Edition possesses leather-trimmed cloth seats and black accent stitching. 

There’s also a new Capability Package exclusive to the High Altitude Trim. The new Package premiers winch-capable steel front bumper, steel rock rails, and a front off-road camera. 

The Gladiator’s Willy trim attained some revision with new standard features such as proximity keyless entry, a 7-inch instrument cluster, remote start, and a garage door opener. 

The Jeep Gladiator’s decal reveals the American flag on each front fender. Plus, the exterior color Snazzberry is no longer, thanks to the new exterior color, High Velocity.
