Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV 4xe Off-Road Sand Mountain

Hurricane Twin Turbo Powertrain Earns Wards 10 Best Engines

Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV 4xe Off-Road Sand Mountain

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe’s plug-in hybrid and the Grand Wagoneer’s 3.0-liter Hurricane Twin Turbo I-6 received the 2022 Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsion Systems award. The Wards honor marks the 12th consecutive year a Stellantis product rests atop the winning list. 

“Our customers are very clear about what they expect from our vehicles and they don’t look to make compromises. The 4xe and Hurricane Twin Turbo powertrains deliver performance that enhances the driving experience on road, off road and when towing. Just as importantly, they reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. The strong demand for Jeep brand 4xe PHEVs and the Hurricane Twin Turbo-equipped Grand Wagoneer demonstrates we are delivering what our customers desire.” 

Micky Bly, Stellantis senior vice president, global propulsion systems engineering. 

The award-winning propulsion systems play an essential role in Stellantis’s Dare Forward 2030 strategy. In addition, the Dare Forward plan places Stellantis at a global carbon footprint reduction of 50% by 2030. Furthermore, the project will allow the multinational automaker a 2038 net carbon zero emissions goal. 

A Ninja-Like Propulsion 

The award marks the second year in a row that Wards cite the 4xe plug-in hybrid propulsion system. The propulsion system is almost as silent as a whisper and yet resilient enough to deliver impeccable off-road capabilities. Furthermore, the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe dominated the top 10 list after some insightful guidance from 2021’s best-selling plug-in hybrid, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe and Wrangler 4xe both share the same propulsion system: a 2.0-liter turbocharged 1-4 engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and a 17-kilowatt-hour battery pack. In addition, the four-by-electric Jeep enthusiasts may select three E select modes for the perfect trip. The E Selec modes include Hybrid, Electric, and eSave. Each mode preserves the battery pack for later usage and surges power to the battery pack when the I-4 engine is active. Moreover, the regenerative braking system adds power to the battery back. 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe provides 25 miles of all-electric range. In addition, the Jeep hybrid maintains 56 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) from its tech-savvy propulsion system. The propulsion system generates 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque for a maximum tow capacity of 6,000 lbs. 

“Spectacular – the back and forth between the internal combustion engine and electrics is imperceptible and the stop/start is ultra smooth. It’s really a bit of an engineering marvel.”

-WardsAuto Judge, Dave Zoia  

Hurricane Twin Turbo 

The Hurricane Twin Turbo I-6 has made its world premiere and already has an award. What sets the engine apart is that it provides more horsepower and torque with fewer emissions than others that offer a naturally aspirated V8 and a boosted six-cylinder engine. 

The engineers at Jeep outdid themselves regarding the inline-6 engine. For instance, the Hurricane’s sophistically equipped with two high-flow turbochargers for a swift response to the throttle inputs. In addition, the plasma transfer arc lines the cylinder bores for a thin low friction surface and the most efficient direct fuel injection. Direct fuel injection delivers more power and heightened fuel performance. 

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer’s Hurricane Twin Turbo 510 is all-aluminum, yielding 510 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. 

“As the evident heir apparent to the HEMI® V-8, this is a huge leap forward for Stellantis, providing the basis for full-size truck and SUV propulsion for years to come. Electrified versions are likely to come, giving it even better numbers in the future.”

WardsAuto Judge, Bov Gritzinger

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe Inherits new Willys Trim

Gray Jeep Wrangler Willy 4xe Off-Road Rocks Trees

“Jeep Wrangler 4xe customers looking for the ultimate combination of capability and electrification, with a vintage twist, can now have it in the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe. The debut of the new heritage-inspired 2023 Wrangler Willys 4xe pairs 49 MPGe, 470 lb.-ft. of torque with unmatched Jeep capability, a 2.72:1 4WD low range ratio, heavy-duty Dana 44 axles, and a new entry price point to the 2023 model year Wrangler 4xe lineup, which continues to be the best-selling plug-in hybrid in America.”

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

For the 2023 model year, the Jeep Wrangler welcomes the new Willys performance package. In addition, the Wrangler Willys 4xe delivers 375 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque, a 17 kWh battery, 21 miles of all-electric range, and hours of all-electric power on the trail. Furthermore, the Jeep SUV embodies that ‘Go Anywhere’ capability with a 2.72:1 Selec-Trac full-time 4WD system, 30 inches of water fording, and heavy-duty Dana 44 axles mud-terrain tires. Moreover, the Jeep Wrangler Willys 4xe factory suspension lift provides 10.1 inches of ground clearance. 

The Willys 4xe features: 

  • Standard LED headlamps and fog lamps
  • Alpine 9-speaker premium audio
  • All-weather floor mats
  • Rear limited-slip differential
  • Rock rails
  •  Black grille
  • 17-inch black-painted alloy wheels sporting LT255/75R17C mud-terrain tires 
  • A unique ‘Willys’ decal on the hood 
  • an ‘Electric 4-Wheel Drive’ decal on the swing gate 

Moreover, the Wrangler Willys 4xe’s optional Sun and Screen Package reveals a class-exclusive Sky One-Touch Power-Top and UConnect 4C Nav with an 8.4-inch infotainment display. 

Wrangler Willys 4xe E Selec Modes 

Whether it is a daily commute, a night under the city lights, or an adventure with the great outdoors, the Willys 4xe’s powertrain comes equipped to handle any trip. 

Hybrid: Automatic default mode for the Wrangler Willys 4xe combines torque from the 2.0-liter engine and electric motor. The hybrid mode employs its battery power first, then propulsion from the 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 when the battery declines to minimal charge.

Electric: Electric mode operates on zero-emission electric power until the battery reaches minimal capacity or unless the Jeep enthusiasts crave more torque. 

eSave: eSave mode considers propulsion a top priority, so it saves the battery charge for electric instances of electric off-roading or clean usage in urban areas. Additionally, enthusiasts can select between Battery Save and Battery Change through the Hybrid Electric Pages in the UConnect monitor.

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.

Windshield Wiper water

New High-Quality Windshield Wiper Blades from Jeep Performance Parts

Windshield Wiper water

As Mopar reigns in 85 years of success, the MOtor PARts company celebrates connecting enthusiasts with the parts essential to an optimal experience. Although the parts and customer-care experts came into existence back in 1937, it wasn’t until the 1960s that Mopar impacted the world. 

Over time, Mopar created performance parts during that muscle-car era that enhanced handling and speed. From there, the accessory specialist’s popularity grew into uncharted territory. As a result, Mopar is now an automotive specialist in technical service, customer support, service, parts, and customer-care operations.   

“Our new, innovative JPP performance wiper blades quickly restore visibility while tackling the toughest trails by keeping the washer fluid where it belongs – on the glass. Perfect for off-road or on-road driving, our new ultra-capable wiper blades are just one of the more than 500 quality-tested, factory-backed parts and accessories in our Jeep portfolio.”

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

In part of Mopar’s continued success, the accessory maker has a new Jeep Performance Part for Wrangler and Gladiator enthusiasts. Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator owners have a chance at a cleaner view of the trail ahead with the latest high-performance wiper blades. 

The Jeep Performance Parts team at Mopar erected windshield wipers that rapidly clear the windshield. However, the genuine astonishment comes from the wiper blades’ utilization of less washer fluid. The JPP performance wipers’ execution stems from the 12 laser-cut holes along each blade that create wet jets that release washer fluid along the entire length. From there, the high-performance blades flood the windshield glass as the blade glides across its arc, and dirt and debris slide off with one simple stroke.  

The Jeep Performance wiper kit, also known as Mopar part number PW100013AB, carries availability within the US and Canada for the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator 2018 model year. Eventually, the windshield wiper blades will find themselves in other markets. In addition, the wiper kit includes arms, blades, and tubing; all components are required for initial installation. Furthermore, Mopar adds a set of replacement blades for good measure.

Jeep Wagoneer Red SUV Mountains Lake Bushes

2022 Jeep Wagoneer Earns Top Large Mass-Market SUV Designation

The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer is all-new but not new to the large SUV segment, and the revitalized SUV is eager to pick up where it left off. The Wagoneer has emerged on the scene now full of features and a retro attitude. As a result, the Jeep SUV earned J.D. Power’s best Large Mass-Market SUV for 2022. 

The Best Large Mass-Market SUV for 2022 

One of many attributes that Jeep can add to the collection is J.D. Power’s top seed for the best Large Mass-Market SUV for 2022, which is unlike any other. But what does the acknowledgment mean? For the legendary automaker, it means the Wagoneer is a car enthusiast’s favorite large SUV. The Jeep Wagoneer is a throwback and one of the most iconic large SUVs of all time, with a refined look and luxury aesthetic encompassing a gang of features and enough space to accommodate a small town. 

J.D. Power Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) 

So how does the JD Power APEAL study analyze happy customers? JD Power simply examines customer fulfillment of their vehicles after 90 days. 

“The study data provides insight on experiences with design, performance, safety, usability, comfort, perceived quality, and other factors.”

– J.D. Power 

The J.D. Power APEAL study examines forty areas in ten critical groups. The APEAL Study areas include approaching the vehicle, setting up and igniting the car, entering and departing the vehicle, the vehicle’s interior, powertrain, the vehicle’s driving performance, safety, the infotainment system, driving comfort, and fuel efficiency. Furthermore, the APEAL study quantifies enthusiasts’ vehicle experience by analyzing instances such as “37 attributes, ranging from the sense of comfort they feel when climbing into the driver’s seat to the exhilaration they get when they step on the accelerator.”

2022 Jeep Wagoneer

The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer is a 2-wheel drive SUV with a 6.4-liter 8-cylinder engine. The Wagoneer is also available with a 4-wheel drive engine which features a 5.7-liter V8 that generates 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque. 

The Jeep Wagoneer holds a starting price of $58,995* (excluding taxes and destination fees). Although the Wagoneer is not as equipped as the Grand Wagoneer, the Jeep SUV features a leather interior, a digital instrument cluster, and a 10.1-inch infotainment screen that may be upgraded to a 12-inch screen. Moreover, the Wagoneer includes seating for eight, but if enthusiasts prefer second-row captain’s chairs, that reduces seating to 7 passengers but with a twist of refinement. 

Let the 2022 J.D. Power’s APEAL study demonstrate the best Large Mass-Market SUV, the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is here.

Gray Jeep Gladiator Two Jet Skis on the Beach

The Best Accessories for the 2022 Jeep Gladiator

Gray Jeep Gladiator Two Jet Skis on the Beach

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator is a pickup destined to redefine how enthusiasts savor the great outdoors. Although hundreds of pickup trucks are on the market, there’s only one Gladiator, and gladiator is a perfect name for the pickup. Additionally, the Jeep pickup is the only truck with removable doors, a retractable/removable roof, and a fold-down windshield. Some contenders may argue that the Jeep Gladiator holds a steep starting price for a compact truck; however, compared to competitors who charge for additional features, the Gladiator premieres those same options as standards, and the price is well worth it. 

As an impeccable off-roader, the Jeep Gladiator is the perfect truck for a multitude of different activities. However, to truly appreciate the Gladiator, here are a few add-ons that take the pickup to a new level. So take a look at the five accessories or aftermarket kits designed for the ultimate adventure.       

Tonneau Cover 

Pickup beds are a lifesaver because anything that doesn’t fit in the cabin quickly finds room in the five-foot bed. But, unfortunately, that same gear is exposed and left available for the taking. Fortunately, the tonneau cover is a soft or hard bed cover that maintains the truck bed’s security. Although there are many hard rubber covers, the reinforced vinyl covers provide the best of both worlds with safety and protection from other elements. Of course, there are more tops than the Mopar tonneau cover that head upstream in the pricing department, but the Mopar (82215617) Tonneau Cover is the perfect level of protection at a feasible price.   

Bed Extender 

The Jeep Gladiator comes standardly equipped with a five-foot bed. Unfortunately, there are no longer or shorter bed sizes. Luckily, there are tube frame extenders that allow enthusiasts to receive more from their five-foot bed. Once the tube frame extender is installed, enthusiasts can lower the tailgate and flip it over for an extra two feet of usable bed space. 

Lift Kit 

The Gladiator is a capable truck ready to unleash more capability with a lift kit. Additionally, the lift kit makes the Jeep pickup appear more monumental, all while increasing the approach angle and breakover angle. The added clearance from the lift kit is critical because the Jeep Gladiator has a long wheelbase, and when it crests a hill, the pickup risks bottoming out. 

Cargo Rack 

If the 2022 Jeep Gladiator cabin is packed, then chances are the truck bed is full or close to it. However, packing up the five-foot truck bed isn’t the best idea, especially if the truck is carrying mountain bikes or surfboards. Fortunately, the adjustable rack system allows room for a cargo rack, bike mount, or kayak rack overhead, with plenty of space for stowing bags below. Furthermore, an elevated bed rack provides more usable space in the bed. 

Storage Box 

A place to store smaller valuable items in the truck bed is essential. A SwingCase is a hard-plastic locker that swings from its stowed position for necessary use. The SwingCase’s curved shape traced the wheel well and hinged to the back near the tailgate. Although a small tab allows the SwingCase to be locked in both positions, the case is also lockable with its own key.

Red Jeep SUV Mountain top

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Crushes the 2023 Toyota 4Runner

Red Jeep SUV Mountain top

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2023 Toyota 4Runner were evaluated based on performance, gas mileage, towing, off-road abilities, safety, passenger/cargo space, and warranty coverage. Before commencing the comparison, it was imminent that there was one clear winner, so here’s a rundown of why enthusiasts deserve nothing but the best, the Jeep Grand Cherokee. 

Performance 

The 2023 Toyota 4Runner receives just one engine, the uninspiring 4.0-liter V6 engine that generates 270 horsepower. Whereas the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a variety of engines that are “Made for What You’re Made of,” all three are powerful. The first Grand Cherokee engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that yields 293 horsepower, the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that outputs 357 horsepower, and the plug-in hybrid that forges 375 horsepower.  

Gas Mileage 

Regarding efficiency, the Jeep Grand Cherokee steals the show again, with gas mileage estimated at 22 mpg combined. Additionally, the Grand Cherokee 4xe holds a fuel economy of 56 mpge in electric mode and 23 combined mpg in hybrid mode. However, the Toyota 4Runner can drive enthusiasts to the corner store, but it can not go back home with a measly 17 combined mpg. 

Towing 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee goes for the clean sweep in another category, towing capacity. The Grand Cherokee pulls up to 7,200 lbs, while the Toyota 4Runner struggles to haul beyond 5,000 lbs. 

Off-Road Capabilities 

Here’s where the 2023 Toyota 4Runner finally keeps up with the Grand Cherokee, with exceptional off-road capabilities. The Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner provide a sophisticated four-wheel drive system and off-road enhancing features. Both SUV’s off-road enriched features include all-terrain tires, an off-road-tuned suspension, and off-road drive modes. Furthermore, the best trims to savor the great outdoors in the Grand Cherokee are the SRT, Trailhawk, and Trackhawk. 

Safety 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner draw another tie in safety. Both SUV’s safety and driving assist features include blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, brake assist, a backup camera, and electronic stability control. 

Passenger/Cargo Space 

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee is larger than the 2023 Toyota 4Runner, equating to more passenger space. The Grand Cherokee L holds a total passenger volume of 152 cu-ft for the three-row and 144.6 cu-ft for the two-row model. Then there’s the Toyota 4Runner, which has a cramped passenger capacity of 128.0 cu-ft for the three-model and the restriction of 93.7 cu-ft for the two-row model. 

To prove our unbias, the Toyota 4Runner beat the Jeep Grand Cherokee in storage capacity. The Toyota 4Runner has a maximum cargo capacity of 89.7 cu-ft, to the Grand Cherokee’s 84.6 ct-ft.  

Warranty Coverage 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner offer sensational warranty support with 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. However, although both SUVs provide free maintenance service, the Toyota 4Runner is not as generous as the Grand Cherokee. For example, the Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers three years or 36,000 miles of coverage while Toyota feeds 4Runner enthusiasts to the wolves with two years or 25,000 miles.  

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Toyota 4Runner 

Although it is no surprise, the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee holds significant advantages over the 2023 Toyota 4Runner. The Grand Cherokee contains many benefits such as performance, gas mileage, towing, passenger capacity, and an exceptional maintenance plan. If enthusiasts select the Toyota 4Runner, then cheer for the decent cargo space.

“With our 1941 origins rooted in the military, we at the Jeep brand are proud of our heritage, and the Gladiator and Wrangler Freedom editions are a tribute to all the servicemen and servicewomen,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “Through these special editions, this Fourth of July we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and support those who have served and continue to serve.”

In honor of US Military members, the legendary automaker Jeep is offering a military-themed, special limited-edition Freedom package for the 2023 Wrangler and Gladiator. The military-themed 4×4’s, feature a military-styled exterior plus exterior and interior design cues. Furthermore, the automaker will contribute a $250 donation to military charities for every special limited-edition Freedom sold.  

The 2023 Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator Freedom special-edition vehicles provide enhancements and distinctive exterior features. For instance, one unique feature is the Oscar Mike (which means on the go for service members) badge on the rear tailgate/swing gate. 

Additionally, the 2023 special-edition Gladiator and Wrangler Freedom include LED headlamps and fog lamps, body-color fender flares, winch-capable steel front bumpers, steel rock rails, black wheels and accents, and an American flag decal along the sides of each off-roader. Further, inside the Jeep Gladiator and Wrangler Freedom edition, the interior boasts leather-trimmed cloth seats and black accent stitching. 

Any active or retired military service member may qualify for the $500 military bonus discount for the 2023 Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator Freedom Special Editions. So hurry while supplies last. The Special Edition Freedoms are available until the end of the month (July 2022).
