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?
2021 Jeep Wrangler 80th Anniversary Edition
To commemorate the brand’s eight-decade existence, Jeep has introduced the “80th Anniversary Edition” for six of its vehicles - the Wrangler, Gladiator, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Compass, and the Renegade. While most of the changes are cosmetic, some come with a few new features. On the Wrangler, the special edition package is available for both two- and four-door models.
2020 Jeep Wrangler CJ400 By Kahn Automobiles
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most sought-after vehicles for tuners and aftermarket companies, thanks to its mod-friendly nature. While Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts offer hundreds of accessories for this off-roader, there are a lot of aftermarket companies that customize it in their unique ways as well.
One such unique, impressive build comes courtesy of none other than Afzal Kahn of the Chelsea Truck Company. Although the SUV is right up there in terms of ruggedness, what makes this different is how luxurious it is on the inside, something that’s uncommon on the Wrangler.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Could Be Considered a Rollover Hazard
This is not good news for Jeep. The 2019 Wrangler JL was recently tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and it tipped onto its side, not once, but twice. This led to the model receiving a “Marginal” rating for the driver-side small overlap front crash test. However, the SUV did well in taking care of the driver’s space to protect the legs and feet, and the dummy’s movements were well-controlled. Will this news affect the sales of the popular Wrangler JL?
Everything You Need to Know About the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Mojave
At the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, Jeep introduced the Gladiator Mojave; a truck with renewed vigor and improved ruggedness to conquer the deserts. It was the first Jeep to receive the newly-coined ‘Desert Rated’ badge.
It looks like the company wants to take give this badge to other products as well. According to MoparInsiders, Jeep is planning to give the 2021 Wrangler the same treatment. Will a Desert Rated SUV be preferred to the truck?
The Best Pickup Trucks for 2020
There’s no denying that pickup trucks are America’s favorite vehicles. Ford F-Series has consistently topped the sales charts for 42 consecutive years now. There are a lot of other automakers with such offerings as well. The segment is highly competitive and you can get confused with what to pick. There is a different variant or a different model altogether in every $1,000 bracket. To help you with this dilemma, we’ve compiled a list of 10 best pickup trucks, ranging from midsize trucks, to full-size, and to heavy-duty ones.
Everything You Didn’t Know About The Jeep Comanche
The Jeep Comanche was a compact pickup truck that American Motors Corporation (AMC) introduced in 1985. Based on the XJ-generation Cherokee, the Comanche was produced until 1992. Production of the small pickup truck moved under the Chrysler Corporation in 1987, when the giant purchased AMC.
A spiritual successor to the Jeep Scrambler, the Comanche was the brand’s last pickup truck until the Gladiator was revived in 2019. Despite not being as iconic as other Jeep models, the Comanche is slowly but surely becoming a classic. Prices have gone up in recent years as this compact truck is as rare as a Ferrari. Here’s a few things you did not know about the Jeep Comanche.
You’d Think the Jeep Trackhawk Could Destroy the Stelvio QV in a Drag Race
As much as we would have liked to see the likes of Dodge Durango SRT and Maserati Levante Trofeo join in on this drag race, we’ll have to settle for FCA’s other two high-performance SUVs. Which is not that bad, considering that what you’e about to see is a straight-line skirmish between the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV.
How Do You Make the World’s Fastest Christmas Tree? Strap It on Top of a Hennessey-Tuned Jeep!
Some years ago Cadillac tied a Christmas tree to the roof of a CTS-V Wagon to perform a holiday burnout. Six years later, Hennessey Performance tied a tree to a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to give us the world’s fastest Christmas tree. Sort of.
If you haven’t seen a Christmas tree run at 181 mph, this is the video you need to watch.
The Jeep Wrangler Feels the Burn as People Buy MOPAR Parts Like Crazy for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator
There’s no denying that prior to the launch of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, the company had anticipated it to be a runaway success. Similarly, Chevrolet was confident of the Corvette C8 doing well, and it added an extra shift of workforce in its Kentucky factory even before the launch of the mid-engined car. FCA introduced a plethora of add-on accessories through Mopar along with the Gladiator’s launch, and the gamble seems to have paid off. In fact, the success is so great that the Gladiator managed to beat the Wrangler when it comes to the moolah customers spend to buy Mopar accessories for their vehicles.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon MOPAR - Driven
Few vehicles on the market today roll off the production line ready to handle the open road and the rockiest of paths, but the Wrangler is probably the most prominent of the few. There have always been a few caveats, though. It’s great for on- and off-road use, but you don’t exactly get the quietest cabin in the world. The on-road ride has also, traditionally, been a little rougher than other models in this segment. Or, at least that’s what we thought until we actually had a chance to take the new Wrangler JL for a test drive. After spending a week with the JL Wrangler we’ve come to realize that the Wrangler actually sits in a segment all its own. Despite our efforts, we can’t find another model this size, with a full-frame, that comes off the showroom floor ready to handle the business.
The real question is, however, whether or not the new JL Wrangler can still handle those off-road thrills but provide a more modern feel inside and more comfortable on-road ride. That’s a tall order for something designed for off-roading first, but the natural evolution of the Wrangler has put it in a unique position on the market. It honestly has no direct competitors in a true sense, and its go-anywhere mentality has been improved with fresh on-road manors. Is it enough to widen the Wrangler’s appeal and make it interesting to those that have traditionally searched for softer crossovers? Does the full-frame, solid-axle arrangement still stand on its own in this ever-evolving market where unibody construction and independent suspension is the norm? Is the JL Wrangler still a jack of all trades that’s good for a weekend of fun and carrying a small family during the week?
These are questions that we now have answers to, thanks to a week spent with the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. We didn’t just have any run-of-the-mill Rubicon, though. The Wrangler that showed up at TopSpeed HQ also included a ferocious amount of MOPAR parts that makes it more off-road ready than ever. So, that raises one more question that we have to answer – at what point does molesting the MOPAR catalog move the Wrangler from a modest daily driver to something that’s more suited for weekend thrills? This is our full, hands-on review of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL (with tons of Mopar parts) and our story of a week’s worth of fun, honest acclimation into a world that we seldom get to experience.
Why the Jeep Sedan Is Actually a Very Good Idea
This year’s April Fools’ Day was packed with interesting and awkward car ideas, including a post by Jeep Middle East about a Jeep sedan. The joke included a rendering of a Chrysler 300 sedan with a Jeep Cherokee front fascia. Although it didn’t look half bad, it looked like a crazy idea coming from an SUV-exclusive manufacturer. But it is completely out of line? I think not, and I’m going to explain why a Jeep sedan could be a brilliant idea.
2020 Ford Explorer Vs 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee
As the best selling SUV in history, the Ford Explorer gained an almost religiously devoted customer base that has kept the legend of the Explorer alive for three decades. However, another SUV, not necessarily placed to fight a direct fight against the Explorer, has a following that’s almost as strong - the Jeep Grand Cherokee. As the new Ford Explorer flashed its body at the NAIAS and attracts customers with its numerous benefits compared to basically any other similar SUV in the segment, I wondered if there’s any incentive to still choose the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee over the new 2020 Ford Explorer. The current Jeep Grand Cherokee has its roots planted in the year 2011 when it came to be. Of course, eight years on the market have left some marks on its skin. It isn’t as advanced, as aerodynamic, nor as convenient as some of its competitors. Yet, despite its aged appearance, the Grand Cherokee is like a really robust SUV geared more towards off-road and toughness than it is towards family values and convenience. That is actually the main character difference between the two.
The biggest physical difference, on the other hand, is the fact that the 2020 Ford Explorer is a three row SUV. The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a two row SUV. Only the next generation of the Grand Cherokee (to be revealed in a year or two), will have two different layouts - it will be offered with two or three rows. Yet, regardless of their main differences, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2020 Ford Explorer are roughly similarly priced.
Jeep Gladiator Goes Fancy with Katzkin Leather in Chicago
The iconic Jeep Gladiator made a comeback after several decades and it’s already a popular topic among truck enthusiasts. A true work horse in base trim, the Gladiator can also be order with premium features and loads of accessories through Mopar. Now, you can also add Katzkin leather via a package that Jeep just showcased at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
FCA Set to Bring Back the Journey Name but It’ll be a rebadged Jeep Wearing a Chrysler Badge
Chrysler is running with a very small portfolio of cars right now – two, to be precise. However, this is set to change as the brand will soon be expanding its line up. As reported by Allpar, Chrysler will rebadge the Jeep Grand Commander, making it the third model in the brands embarrassingly small lineup.
2020 Jeep Gladiator
Essentially a Wrangler with a five-foot bed, the Gladiator rides on a custom body-on-frame that’s longer than the SUVs. The truck also shares drivetrain components with the Wrangler, including the Pentastar V-6 engine. A diesel mill, already available in the Ram 1500, will be offered in 2020. The Gladiator stands out among its competition thanks to its open-air configuration, unique on the market, and impressive payload and towing capabilities.
The Jeep Gladiator is a new pickup truck based on the latest-generation Wrangler. As the first Jeep-badged truck in almost three decades, the Gladiator made its public debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Originally believed to arrive with the Scrambler name, the pickup truck revives a nameplate first used in the 1960s.
What can we say? The new Jeep Gladiator is here, and we’re about as excited as a kid on Christmas. Maybe even a little more excited. Not only is the Gladiator the Jeep truck that we’ve been begging for but it stays true to the brand’s off-road roots with solid axles, a six-speed manual transmission, massive off-road tires, and some decent mustard under the hood – all the things purists expect and then some. But, besides all of that fun, off-road-inspired goodness, did we mention that it’s based largely on the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL and that it looks downright sexy? Well, we probably did in on of the many stories we’ve put out on the new Gladiator, but we still can’t keep our eyes off it. That’s why we’ve decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. Well, there’s a ton of amazing wallpapers to choose from so take our favorite for what it is or check out our big gallery below for other options and download as many as you want!
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator’s Little Easter Egg is A Nod To its Production Roots
Thirteen years after introducing the Gladiator concept, Jeep finally came through on its word to launch a production model. The all-new, Wrangler-based Gladiator is a big deal, not just for Jeep, but for the entire pickup segment. We’ve already talked about the Gladiator numerous times in the last few days, but we’re back with another interesting nugget about the pickup. It’s an easter egg included inside the pickup that pays homage to its production roots.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Parades New Upgrades from Mopar in L.A.
The long-anticipated Jeep Gladiator, the company’s first pickup truck in 26 years, made its global debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Not surprisingly, Mopar has already created a range of parts and accessories for the truck and showcased them on a Rubicon model. The most important of which include a two-inch lift kit, spray-in bed liner, and a truck bed storage system.
Mopar has been providing parts and accessories for Chrysler and Fiat cars for decades now, and it also helped Jeep develop quite a few concept vehicles. Naturally, the Gladiator had to be included now that Jeep finally offers a pickup truck. Mopar presented 20 products for the Gladiator in Los Angeles, but more are definitely underway. Let’s have a look at what you can order once the Gladiator goes on sale.
The Jeep Gladiator Stays True to its Roots with a Standard Six-Speed Manual Transmission
A tough pickup truck that we have been dreaming about for ages is finally here. The news of a pickup truck from Jeep’s stable is not new; and by not new, I mean, it’s been doing rounds for almost a decade. Finally, the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator has arrived. The wait has been worth it because it is as tough as it can get, and it comes with manual transmission as it should! Put your tongues back in, purists.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Comes to Take on the Chevy Colorado and Toyota Tacoma
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator comes to take on the Chevy Colorado and Toyota Tacoma with some serious credentials that puts good faith in the phrase “good things come to those who wait.” The Gladiator rocks out the new Wrangler JL look with a five-foot bed in the rear. It’s downright gorgeous, but it’s not just about what it looks like. This baby can tow up to 7,650 pounds that’s 850 pounds more than the Toyota Tacoma and 650 pounds more than the Chevy Colorado.
