Here Are the Best Accessories for the 2021 Jeep Cherokee

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee is unlike any other crossover. The midsize crossover has off-road and towing capabilities; it also encompasses high-end technology and a plethora of powertrains. As a result, the Jeep Cherokee is the perfect SUV for power, execution, and style. It doesn’t matter if enthusiasts seek adventures or a local commute. The Cherokee holds class-leading specs to keep the Jeep SUV standing tall above the rest. 

The Jeep Cherokee carries nine available trims plus a handful of nifty features and accessories. Selecting the Cherokee over its competitors is a no-brainer, especially with the zestful V6 engine and all-wheel drive. Yet, however powerful the off-road SUV may be, the genuine difficulties lie in finding the right accessories. Thank goodness we are here to help, spend some quality time with the Jeep Cherokee’s interior and exterior accessories

Exterior Accessories

The Cherokee’s exterior looks the same across every trim. However, aside from the distinctive headlights and firm profile, these additions are sure to separate every fan’s Cherokee trim from the mundane. So again, there are a handful of options for exterior accessories, but these are accessories Cherokee enthusiasts should acquire sooner than later. 

First, there’s the hands-free power liftgate. The power liftgate provides access to the cargo without the use of hands. Next up, the windshield wiper de-icer is super convenient for inclement weather. Lastly, a tire fill alert notifies drivers when the tire pressure is abnormal. 

Tech Accessories

Some of the best attributes of the Jeep Cherokee are found nestled away in the SUV’s tech options.  First, there’s the UConnect 4C NAV inside the 8.4-inch touchscreen with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, Navigation, and drag-and-drop functionality. The Uconnect accessory assures that the driver is constantly connected with easy navigation through other features. 

There’s also the unforgettable Alexa compatibility. The Jeep SUV connects via Amazon Alexa and from there, Cherokee enthusiasts can start the car, check the fuel, and upgrade locations in the Navigation system all from the comfort of their home. 

Safety and Security Accessories 

No accessory list would come to completion without safety and security features. Although every premium option isn’t available for every trim, some standard features go above and beyond their call of duty. 

One of the best features the Cherokee has to offer is the full-speed forward collision warning with active braking. The full-speed forward collision feature allows the driver to react to any immediate hazard.  There’s also LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist to guide the driver on a steady course.

The Brazil Preview Heard Around the World for the 2022 Jeep Renegade

By Ashley J | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, January 21st, 2022 at 5:44 PM

Rare sightings, but the internet remains undefeated. Spies captured the 2022 Jeep Renegade prototype back in September (2021). Testing for the Renegade commenced some time last year, and speculation gathered that the vehicle would reach the US sometime this year (2022). Yet, in true undefeated behavior, the internet leaked a video of the 2022 Renegade. The leak forced Jeep Brazil to “officially” reveal the subcompact SUV through a series of photos. 

For now, everything known about the Renegade is limited to its exterior and brief glimpses of the cabin. First, the subcompact Jeep receives a facelift, giving the SUV a narrower grille than its predecessor. In addition, turn signals and the daytime running lights (DRLs) reveal an integration into the headlights. The new integration left room for Jeep to alter the fascia on the lower section. Additionally, the fog lights receive a new rectangular shape placed higher than the previous model. 

At the back of the Renegade is the LED taillight, but this time around there’s an alteration in the taillight graphics. The bumper also received a redesign featuring an enlarged faux skid plate and slimmer lights at the corner. 

Jeep

The Renegade’s cabin also revealed a humble redesign. Although the dashboard layout for the outgoing trim remains consistent, the SUV features an updated steering wheel from its older brother, the Jeep Compass. In addition to the new steering wheel, the Renegade gains a fully digital 7-inch instrument panel and an 8.4-inch infotainment screen.  

There’s little information about what’s underneath the hood other than the fact that Brazil will eliminate the diesel-powered option for the 2022 model. Additionally, the 1.3-liter Turboflex T270 engine will premiere in the crossover. The Turboflex engine generates 185 horsepower with ethanol. The Renegade’s standard powertrain is front-wheel-drive paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. 

 The 2022 Jeep Renegade will premiere in the South American market by January or February of this year (2022). The US debut will happen sometime this year, but no one knows the official date for now.

The Four Wheeler SUV of the Year Goes to the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392

By Ashley J | Posted in 4xe, Jeep, Jeep in Miami, Jeep Miami on Friday, January 21st, 2022 at 2:01 PM
Jeep

The Wrangler Rubicon 392 with its V8 engine is the pinnacle of premium off-road SUVs. Other automakers try, but they can’t compare no matter their efforts. So, when others thought Jeep peaked, the automaker broke out the factory option. 

The 2022 Wrangler Rubicon 392 encompasses the best of the best when it comes to the V8 engine. The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 is the largest engine in the catalog, and the Wrangler’s fenders create a beast of a Rubicon. Once the V8 pairs with the iconic off-road hardware of Jeep’s Rubicon package and the Xtreme Recon package, it’s difficult to deny the 392 is the king of the off-road jungle and the 2022 Four Wheeler SUV of the Year.

 Ramp Travel Index RTI and Track Data 

Under the hood of the Rubicon 392 lies a hell-raising 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine. The engine yields 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, which garners the title of the most potent Jeep produced thus far. The V8’s support system is the TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission and the MP3022 Selec-Trac transfer case. The full-time transfer case is phenomenal for traction. 

The 5,200-pound Jeep skyrockets from 0-60 mph on the track in less than 5 seconds. The Wrangler Rubicon jolts through 1,320 feet in less than 14 seconds, dashing across the finish line at 101.3 mph, which makes the SUV the quickest and fastest SUV MotorTrend has ever tested.  

Similar to the Wrangler Rubicon, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, the 392 dominated the RTI ramp. With the front anti-roll bar engaged, both Wranglers climbed to 63 inches. When the 392 disconnected the electronic front anti-roll bar, it made an additional 18 inches (81 inches) up the ramp. 

Time to hit the Off-Roads 

There’s a notable contrast between the Rubicon 392 and the typical Wrangler Rubicon, and that’s gearing. The 392 harbors so much power that Jeep offers a 2.72:1 low range gear instead of the standard 4.0:1. The axle gears also see an alteration of 3.73:1 instead of the 4.10:1.

The 35-inch tires are a circulation of force with locking differential at both ends, a disconnecting anti-roll bar, rock slides, and skid plates, an unstoppable force on the off-road. As a result, the Jeep easily persevered through the steep, rutted hill climbs and rocky trails.  

Although the Wrangler Rubicon is an award-winning SUV, the addition of the Xtreme Recon package and the 6.4-liter V8 engine proves that Jeep engineered the perfect off-road king. At the heart of the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is a vehicle eager to dominate, holding three of five spots in the judged categories.  It’s an honor to declare the Wrangler Rubicon 392 MotorTrend’s 2022 Four Wheeler SUV of the Year.

The Best Features of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe

Jeep

Jeep continues to embark on the path less traveled. A road that other automakers explicitly divert from. ‘Go Anywhere, Do Anything’ is so much more than a motto; it is Jeep’s vigorous effort to bridge the gap between practicality and electric efficiency. 

The 2022 Wrangler embraces a new powertrain known as the 4xe (4-by-e). The Wrangler 4xe is everything the Wrangler stands for with increased power, economy, and borrowed eco credentials from the Toyota Prius. 

Once the Wrangler 4xe launched, Jeep unveiled a new electrifying plan for its lineup. As a result, vehicles like the Renegade, Cherokee, and Compass will boast a new powertrain by 2025. But, until that time, there’s nothing wrong with breeding a little familiarity with the Wrangler 4xe; after all, it is the most rugged approach to a rechargeable adventure. 

Capability and Economy 

The Wrangler 4xe is a nice-sized compact SUV, tottering between small and medium with a weight that leaves anyone saying, “is it really that heavy!?” The Wrangler carries 4000-4200 lbs of curb weight for the 2-liter gas engine. But the Rubicon V8 isn’t shy about its size, with a weight of 5100 lbs. The 4xe isn’t too far behind the V8 in poundage as the 2.0-liter turbocharged 270 horsepower engine with 295 lb-ft of torque adds 800 lbs because of the hybrid gear. 

An 8-speed automatic and power invigorate all four wheels while vented discs enforce the brakes. Combining electric power with the internal combustion engine yields 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, which is exceptional since the Rubicon 392 holds a 6.4-liter engine that generates 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.  

Customized Luxury 

Aside from the powertrain, there are a ridiculous amount of trims and options to sift through. For example, the Wrangler 4xe is available as a Sahara, Rubicon, even High-Altitude. The base model (Sahara) features 20-inch wheels, an 8.4-inch display, and leather seats, to name a few. Customizing the Wrangler’s isn’t impossible because there is a superabundance of add-ons, such as the American flag sticker for the hood. The High Altitude model features blind spot cross path detection, remote keyless entry, dark interior accents, a rear-window wiper, and a 3-piece hardtop just for upgrading.  

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a tremendous step forward for users reluctant of zero emissions.

Three More Screens for the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L

By Ashley J | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, December 31st, 2021 at 2:43 PM
Jeep

The award-winning Jeep Grand Cherokee L introduced itself to enthusiasts sometime in 2021. The Cherokee L bears a long-wheelbase, three-row seating, and an impeccable interior design. With an exquisite interior and advanced technology, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L harbors immense capability both on and off-road. 

Jeep found it necessary to optimize the 2022 Grand Cherokee L even as a noteworthy vehicle. As a result, the 2022 model year brings forth even more technological treats, appearance packages, and various paint options for the mid-size SUV. 

The most drastic augmentation comes from within. The exterior welcomes the optional 10.3-inch front passenger screen. The 10.3-inch screens are in the Cherokee L’s older cousin, the flagship Wagoneer. The screen illuminates navigation, camera views, and any kind of cinematic entertainment. Additionally, the screens will appear standard on the Summit Reserve, the Grand Cherokee L’s premium trim. Furthermore, the screen is optional for the Limited and Overland variations. 

Jeep would never take care of the front seat passengers and forget about the rear passengers. So, as a result, the Grand Cherokee L also features new screens for the crew in the back. There’s a pair of 10.1-inch high-definition screens mounted to the back of the front seats. The 10.1-inch screens are available for the Limited, Overland, and Summit variations.    

The new screens feature the built-in Amazon Fire TV. In addition, the Fire TV can link to any in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot or any hotspot via mobile device. Each display comes standard with nine gigabytes of storage to download PrimeVideo content, an HDMI port, and two voice remotes with Alexa’s inside. Enjoy content with the family through mirroring or enjoy alone time with an individual screen; either way, the Cherokee L’s more than capable. 

The 2022 Grand Cherokee L expands the family with Limited Black and Summit High Altitude packages. In addition, the new packages feature gloss-black exterior accents, roof rails, and a customized grille. The Limited Black cruises on 20-inch gloss black aluminum wheels while the Summit attains 21-inch wheels. 

There are also three new color options: Ember, Midnight Sky, and Hydro Blue. All three exterior colors are available for the Overland, Summit, and Summer Reserve models. However, only two colors are accessible to the Limited variation, the Ember and Midnight Sky.

Jeep Gladiator 4Xe Hits a Bump in the Reveal Road

By Ashley J | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, December 20th, 2021 at 2:33 PM
Jeep

It’s not every day a heavy-hitting automaker admits that the competition led them back to the drawing board. But Jeep is brave enough to hit the reset button, even amidst a successful refresh. 

Of course, the Jeep Wrangler has always served at the forefront of Jeep’s affection. Since the Wrangler is the apple of the automaker’s eye, its recent refresh welcomed new trim packages and beefy off-road options like the factory’s 37-inch tires. However, these are mere examples of how Jeep knocks it out of the park with fresh, innovative redesigns.     

Somehow the attention the Jeep Wrangler renders does not parallel to its first cousin once removed, the Jeep Gladiator pickup truck. According to Mopar Insiders, the transfer of the  Wrangler’s prominent electrified 4Xe powertrain proved more difficult than Jeep anticipated. 

Mopar Insider is a reliable source for automotive information, and if its reports are accurate, then the Jeep Gladiator 4Xe won’t be seen or heard until 2024. Unfortunately, the Gladiator 4Xe would surface one model year after the mid-cycle refresh of the esteemed Wrangler. 

There are no expectations for wholesale alterations to the Wrangler. So It’s safe to assume that the Wrangler will endure fewer technological and feature upgrades necessary to contend against the Ford Bronco. 

When properly equipped, the Ford Bronco Badlands trim with Sasquatch mode features Trail Turn Assist and an electronic disconnecting sway bar which is enough to leave any automaker shaking in its boots. But Jeep wants to ensure the Wrangler competes for the marathon and not just the race. So other Jeep projects fall to the waist, as the Wrangler takes precedence.    

Several modes in the Jeep lineup engage electrons in the powertrain, such as the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. Moreover, Jeep unmasked an objective of a fully electrified lineup by 2025, and with the Gladiator 4Xe extended a year, Jeep can still obtain that objective.  

Although unfortunate, the Gladiator 4Xe has hit the pause button on Jeep’s DVR. So it’s not illogical for the Wrangler to hit center stage. After all, the Wrangler is Jeep’s most distinctive model.    

At the time of writing, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4Xe consists of a 2.0-L turbocharged four with two electric motors paired with an eight-speed automatic. The tandem generates 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, plus 18 miles of all-electric range. So let’s anticipate modest enhancements for 2023.

Strong Demand Leads to 2022 Jeep Wrangler Tuscadero Exterior Extension

By Ashley J | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, December 20th, 2021 at 12:54 PM

“We expected Tuscadero to be popular and the customer response has been overwhelmingly strong. It’s so popular, we’re extending production into 2022 model-year production to meet strong customer demand. Customers can place an order through December of this year.” 

 -Jeep Brand North America Vice President Jim Morrison

Since its debut in August of 2021, the “for a limited time only” Tuscadero exterior paint became a fan favorite. The Tuscadero, exclusive to the Jeep Wrangler, embodies a reddish-pink hue that 30,000 fans fell in awe of. The special-edition Tuscadero exterior is also Jeep’s most desired color of 2021. 

A look at the daring Tuscadero and its extensively zealous magenta are enough to captivate any Wrangler enthusiasts to acquire the candy-coated brilliance. But the Tuscadero isn’t the only vivid color in the special run of exterior paints. Colors such as the Gecko, Chief, and Nacho also added customization and flair to the Jeep Wrangler with a color palette directly from the factory. 

The Tuscadero is available to all 2021 and 2022 Wrangler models, including the Sport, Rubicon, 4Xe, and 392. In addition, the Wrangler’s chromatic magenta exterior paint option is acquirable from now until the end of December 2021. The US manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) starts at $395.  

Aside from the extension of the nostalgic Pinky Tuscadero, the 2022 Wrangler lineup gains the Willys model with the Xtreme Recon package. The thrill-seeking trim features 35-inch BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires. The Willy’s Xtreme model traverses atop 17-inch wheels, a 1.5-inch suspension lift, upgraded brakes, and a plethora of blacked-out trims and badges. The standard Willys Xtreme Recon Model details a 3.6-liter V6 engine for the four-door Unlimited body Style.  

The 35-inch tires and 1.5-inch suspension lift were exclusive to the top-spec Rubicon and Rubicon 392 variations. But Jeep recognized the limitation and adapted with the moderately priced Jeep Wrangler Willys, eager to go toe-to-toe against the Ford Bronco and its Sasquatch package.

Here’s Why Three Comes Before Two with the Jeep Grand Cherokee L

By Ashley J | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, December 3rd, 2021 at 4:00 PM
Jeep

When John Heywood said, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day,’ the same sentiments echoed throughout the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Jeep’s design, and engineering team persevered through a handful of tremendous obstacles. When Jeep initiated the redesign of the exemplary Jeep Grand Cherokee, the expansion also added three-row seating.

Three-row seating is a vital commodity in today’s market. So eruptive that Jeep initiated the release of the Jeep Grand Cherokee L before the classic two-row Grand Cherokee. The market required a three-row segment from the automaker, and boy did they understand the assignment. 

These were abrupt modifications, and Jeep responded promptly with great reason. 

“Seventy-five percent of the market is made up of three-row SUVs. If we wanted to grow our market, we had to compete with a three-row vehicle too.” -Jeep Chief Engineer Tom Seel. 

In addition, both the Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L support the same forward doors, and both Grand Cherokee variants carry the same B-pillar forward. The team process began with the two-door design before deliberation trickled down to prioritizing the three-row. The path wasn’t easy, and that frequently goes overlooked simply because of body and component similarities. 

Lead designer Mark Allen and his team prepared both SUVs simultaneously. The Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L come from the same plant. The Jeep SUVs sheet metal also needed the same principal locating points on the assembly line. To sum up, locating points, the robot can just lift the pieces for each SUV without building out a second line. 

Allen’s biggest challenge was to make a three-row the same size as the two-row. Today it’s easy to see no obstacle is too significant for the engineers at Jeep to handle. However, Seel emphasized the team’s diligence because both SUVs are often confused with one another. 

Jeep didn’t want the three-row to resemble its larger cousin, the Grand Wagoneer. So the most distinctive features are that the Grand Cherokee holds a faster back while the Grand Cherokee L includes a squared-off third row for that vital headspace. 

The 2022 Grand Cherokee measures 11.4 inches shorter than the Grand Cherokee L, and the wheelbase is also five inches shorter. 

“It was a success in the end, but there were a lot of us in the design studio muttering, ‘How are we going to do this?’” -Allen 

The timing was tight, and even the clay model didn’t receive much molding, which is a sure-fire recipe for slowing down the team. Fortunately, Jeep knows that delivering SUVs that grants enthusiast the freedom to go anywhere is an intense process from start to finish. As a result, the engineers can catch their breath and continue to make tremendous strides now that both vehicles have launched.
