Jeep Sold Hundreds of Thousands Of Vehicles With a Spelling Error
You know how Jeep hides all sorts of easter eggs into its brand-new cars? Well, today we’re going to talk a little about this. Probably. Not. Long story short, the Jeep Cherokee XJ was sold for a whopping 13 years with a spelling error hidden in plain sight. Let me explain.
Jeep All Set To Debut The Wrangler EV Concept Next Month
Until a few years back, there was an unsaid notion that hatches and sedans would be electrified first (the urban commuters) and off-roaders would evolve at the end. But, that is definitely not the scene right now. Back in September 2020, Jeep introduced the Wrangler 4xe, a plug-in hybrid version of the standard Wrangler. Now the automaker has confirmed the concept electric version of the Wrangler on its “Road Ahead” site and it will be presented at the Easter Jeep Safari that’s scheduled to start on March 28, 2021.
Jeep | The Middle - A Super Bowl Commercial Rooted in History and a Love For Peace
Unlike last year’s Groundhog Day ad with Bill Murray and the Gladiator pickup truck, Jeep opted for a Super Bowl commercial that focuses on the bigger picture and the greater good. The ad features none other than Bruce Springsteen who delivers a heartfelt message to the viewers about finding ‘The Middle’ in terms of unity. Quite a brave attempt from Jeep, considering that all it showed was an old CJ-5 and, well, a rather controversial casting choice of the musician for this kind of a commercial.
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L
Instead of introducing a brand new model in the rather popular three-row SUV market, Jeep played it smart and decided to offer the Grand Cherokee SUV itself with an extra set of seats. Called the Grand Cherokee L, Jeep decided to capitalize on this 27-year old popular moniker instead of building a new vehicle from the ground up that may or may not have been successful.
Jeep has sold over 200,000 examples of the Grand Cherokee annually in the last four years, so there’s no reason why the three-row Grand Cherokee L won’t be a hit. But, is it just about extra seats, or does the Grand Cherokee L bring something new to the table?
2020 Jeep Compass - Driven
Jeep Compass has been in the market for over a decade now and has become a staple moniker in the segment now. This two-row SUV is one of the rare models in this segment that can actually be taken off the roads without doubting its abilities. Of course, it’s no Cherokee, but it does a lot better than its rivals in this aspect. Although it features a heavy 2.4-liter engine, the power outputs aren’t that great and the nine-speed automatic gearbox makes the whole drive even more lethargic. However, it comes with a nice interior setup, decent tech features, and aesthetics that will please all and offend none. So, should you pick the Jeep Compass over the Honda CR-V or the Ford Escape?
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L - Bigger Than Ever With Impressive Tech
Jeep has been milking the Grand Cherokee moniker for over 27 years now and it is still one of the top-selling models for the automaker. The SUV is showing its age in the current iteration, but that doesn’t mean the demand is going low. So, instead, Jeep decided to tap into another niche with the same formula. Called the Grand Cherokee L, this SUV rides on an extended platform and has a third row of seats.
The 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392 is the Second Most Expensive Jeep Ever
Jeep is finally giving us a V-8-powered Wrangler, for the first time since the nameplate was introduced in 1987, but it will cost a pretty penny.
According to a recent leak, the 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392 will start from around $75,000, which is a massive premium over the regular Rubicon and a sticker that puts it above the Grand Cherokee SRT.
Forget Every Christmas Gift Idea You Have and Just Buy the Lego Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
Sometime during the upcoming holiday season, I’m going to make time to go through my growing pile of Lego boxes. I’m going to need to go through them quickly because come January 1, 2021, Lego’s going to be taking more of my money once the $169 Technic Ferrari 488 GTE goes on sale. But that’s not the only Lego kit dropping that day. The Technic McLaren Senna will also hit stores, and as if those two kits weren’t enough, Lego announced that it’ll also drop the newly-revealed Technic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon kit. The drops are happening at the turn of the new year, which, I suppose is a good thing. There’s no better way to say goodbye to the shit show that was 2020 by rolling up our sleeves and building Lego kits to kick-off 2021. The Wrangler Rubicon kit, in particular, looks like a fun project. Plus, at just $49.99, it’s a lot cheaper than the $169.99 price tag of the 488 GTE kit.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 packs 470-horsepower V-8; still off-road capable
When Ford revived the Bronco earlier in 2020, Jeep introduced the V-8-powered Wrangler 392 Concept. But what seemed like a PR stunt created to crash Ford’s celebration has morphed into a production model. Meet the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, the first-ever Wrangler powered by a V-8 engine and the most powerful Wrangler built since the nameplate was introduced back in 1987. The muscular powerplant, shared with the Dodge Charger and Challenger, is backed by enhanced off-road capability and several special features inside and out.
2020 Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept by Mopar
The SEMA Show is turning out to be quite exciting. Jeep is taking part, obviously, and has come with a concept targeted at hard-core mountain bike enthusiasts. The automaker, along with Mopar, has transformed the 2020 Gladiator pickup truck into a fun concept vehicle for serious mountain bikers. But, what’s catchier about this concept is the number of storage spaces in the customized truck bed. Oh, and also, there’s a built-in hot dog machine. How about that!
2021 Jeep Gladiator Willys
While special editions are a nice thing to have, an overdose of them isn’t taken too well. Not long ago, Jeep introduced anniversary editions on many of its vehicles, and now, it has come up with another one for the Gladiator. This one is called the Gladiator Willys. Willys models in Jeeps have a different fan-base altogether, so we’ll let Jeep off the hook for this one. The pickup truck comes with a lot of off-road equipment in this edition, and it will be an exciting one for the folks who found the standard Gladiator a little too plain-Jane as per Jeep’s standards. Will this qualify to become a standard trim in the future?
2020 Jeep Wrangler Protest Edition By Chelsea Truck Company
Chelsea Truck Company has returned with another Jeep Wrangler rendition called the Protest Edition. Although the name could be considered slightly controversial, the changes made to the SUV are pretty neat. Nothing under the hood has been changed and it is stock, which means all the changes are cosmetic only. This Wrangler is a right-hand-drive model and is brand-new, unlike some of the examples from Chelsea lately that have had previous owners.
