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.
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.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon versus Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe
Jeep took the wraps off the Wrangler 4xe and it seems like an environment-friendly off-roader. Although there were some apprehensions about this new hybrid version of the off-roader, the automaker has made big claims. While the company has hyped the Wrangler 4xe in general, there was one claim that said “New Level of Benchmark Jeep Off-road Capability”. From what we knew before the launch, the 4xe was going to be a hybrid version of the standard Wrangler that would be more efficient and a little more torquey. Now that it has been unveiled, does it offer a new level of off-road capability?
Jeep has provided some information on the Wrangler 4xe’s models and specs, but there’s still a lot that’s not known. So, for the sake of comparison, we’ll be pitting the Rubicon trims of the standard Wrangler and the Wrangler 4xe, and here’s how they measure:
Watch the Old Land Rover Defender Keep Up with the New Defender and Jeep Gladiator
Land Rover brought back the 2020 Defender after a four-year hiatus and it is quite impressive. But, the new body and feel gave it more of an urban vibe than the classic off-roader pizzazz that the Defender is generally known for. So, to see how it weighs in the present scenario, the folks at TFL decided to take it off-roading along with the old Defender and the rugged Jeep Gladiator. Can it match its rivals as an off-roader, or has the new Defender become an urban commuter with a just little off-roading DNA left in it?
2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20
It won’t be wrong to say that the Jeep Wrangler is a cult of sorts when it comes to customizing a vehicle. The Wrangler is one of the most customizable vehicles not just with aftermarket accessories, but also thanks to the rich directory of the in-house guide, Mopar.
The Wrangler comes with so many optional accessories and packages that it might leave you scratching your head. To help you with this conundrum, Jeep decided to customize the Wrangler in-house with accessories and call it the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20. It was showcased at the Chicago Auto Show and it did grab a fair bit of attention. Looks pretty sweet, doesn’t it?
Bill Murray’s Super Bowl Commercial With the Jeep Gladiator Was Arguably The Best One This Year
Amongst the plethora of car commercials that aired during the Super Bowl, the Jeep Gladiator ad touched our hearts the most. The commercial saw Bill Murray step into the shoes of Phil Connor, the disgruntled weatherman from the 1993 movie Groundhog Day. In the movie, Phil finds himself stuck in a time loop wherein he relives the Groundhog Day over and over again. Jeep recreated this scene by filming with few of the original cast at the same locations, while subtly putting its Gladiator into the mix.
Video: Would You Drive This Six-Wheeled Jeep Wrangler in the U.S.?
When you talk about a beast on six wheels, the sight of Richard Hammond driving a G63 on the sand dunes around Dubai comes to mind. But here’s one other example, and perhaps, a poor man’s Mercedes-AMG G63 6X6.
A 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has been converted from an SUV to a pickup truck, and from a four-wheel config to a six-wheel one. YouTuber Doug DeMuro got his hands on it and here’s what it is all about.
A Michigan Jeep Dealer Turned the Gladiator Into a CJ-8 Scrambler and It’s Awesome
The last time we heard of the Jeep Scrambler was at this year’s Easter Jeep Safari when the automaker brought it along with other Gladiator-based concepts. Now, a Michigan dealer has paid tribute to the iconic model by turning a 2020 Gladiator into a CJ-8 Scrambler. The truck comes with the famous orange stripes and decals running across the body. It’s also priced a little high considering the changes made, but who are we to complain if we get to see this beauty on the roads?
Jeep’s Return to Military Service Could Go Through The Gladiator Pickup
It’s safe to say that the Gladiator is winning a lot of fans over, and if the pickup’s momentum continues, the Gladiator’s fanbase could grow to include the United States Military. This, folks, is the Jeep Gladiator XMT. It’s a military-grade light tactical concept vehicle that was built by Jeep in partnership with AM General, the same company that made the Humvee, which later spawned the road-legal Hummer H1 back in the early 1990s. As popular as the Jeep Gladiator has become, it is a bit of a letdown that the coolest and most awesome version of the pickup won’t be available to the public. Then again, if it’s going to be used to defend our country, then we’re all for that. The Jeep Gladiator XMT made its debut at AUSA, the annual meeting exposition of the Association of the U.S. Army.
You Can Now Order the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL With a Diesel, But The Cost Is Almost Unbearable
Well, this is some big news that will interest all the Jeep Wrangler fans out there. JLWranglerForums has received a scoop on the pricing of the diesel engine option. As it turns out, the famed 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine will be available as optional on the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL for $6,000.
This includes the price of the eight-speed automatic gearbox as well. But there’s a catch. Although the premise of this engine making its way under the hood of the Wrangler is exciting at the onset, we are utterly disappointed that this engine cannot be mated to a manual transmission. Come on, Jeep. Why can’t you let us have the cake and eat it too this one time?
2019 Jeep Gladiator by FiftyTen
The Jeep Gladiator changed the way the compact pickup market was looked at. We finally have a hardcore truck that is as versatile as any other truck it competes against. We’ve covered the Gladiator as a daily driver, an off-roader, and a work truck; but, how about as an adventure truck? We guess this was the only thing left on the list.
Here’s FiftyTen, a German company that makes camping gear. The company recently teased a foldable camping gear earlier this year, and now, it has revealed the product by shelling out some details on the Gladiator-based camper that will make its debut over the coming weekend.

Driving the New Jeep Wrangler JL on a Harsh Off-Road Course Is a Confidence Boosting Experience
The newJeep Wrangler JL has been around for some time but we had the chance to put it to (hard) work where it belongs the most: that is, way off the beaten path. So we were handed a couple of Wrangler JL Saharas and encouraged to roam freely on an obstacle course that made sure neither we or the cars had it easy. Here’s what we can report in the wake of this off-roading experience.
Here’s What the Ford Bronco Pickup Truck Needs to Slay the Jeep Gladiator
Jeep kept the enthusiasts waiting for over three decades to launch a new pickup truck. But this year, it finally launched the 2020 Gladiator that has impressed the hell out of everyone. It’s sales figures are not bad either, considering that the truck is slightly overpriced for what’s on offer. There were a lot of apprehensions before the launch as to what kind of customers Jeep will cater to with the Gladiator; with the most popular choice being the enthusiasts. However, Jeep sprung a surprise by launching it in trims that serves a wide variety of people. It all seemed good until Ford decided to drop a bomb on Jeep. News about a Ford Bronco-based pickup truck started surfacing the internet, and it sure garnered a lot of attention. The main reason as to why Gladiator was one of the most anticipated launches of the year because of its rich legacy. But with this new offering from Ford, the Gladiator’s advantage is nullified. However, Ford needs to bring out one hell of a product to trump the Gladiator and all the hype surrounding it. Do you think it could beat the 2020 Jeep Gladiator?
Can the Jeep Gladiator Hold Its Own Against a new, Bronco-Based Pickup?
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator made a strong impact when it debuted earlier this year. The iconic pickup truck from Jeep was long due and managed to live up to the hype of enthusiasts. The X-factor of the Gladiator is its versatility. People expected the Gladiator to be mainly an off-roader of sorts. The brain-stormers at Jeep, however, did a great job in splitting the variants that make the Gladiator a competent work truck, daily driver, and a hardcore off-roader. However, it is now going to face competition from the company that is dominating the truck segment for decades now. Yes, I’m talking about the Blue Oval. The company has reportedly come up with a Bronco-based pickup truck that will take on the Jeep Gladiator.
Jeep Gladiator Maximus 1000 by Hennessey
Jeep kept us waiting for almost three decades to bring out the Gladiator. It launched the concept truck back in 2005, but the production-spec truck was launched this year. However, it was worth the wait because Jeep managed to create an all-round truck that could be used as a daily-driver, as an off-roader, and also as a work truck. However, that Gladiator couldn’t be considered a ’beast’ in any sense. It neither looked intimidating, nor had the firepower to make people’s jaws drop. But Hennessey Performance was quick to work on this and decided to close in on the one thing that the original Gladiator was not. Hennessey has unveiled the alter-ego version of the Jeep Gladiator under the 2020 Hennessey Maximus 1000 Jeep Gladiator Truck moniker. The tuner decided not to make this a common offering and announced that only 24 examples of the Maximus will be manufactured. Is this product worth the exclusivity?
How We’d Configure an Off-Road 2020 Jeep Gladiator
Despite having a range of competent products in the stable, the need for a pickup truck was hurting the company. But, after almost three decades, Jeep finally decided to bring back the Gladiator, and the truck has been the talk of the town ever since. Jeep has left no stone unturned to make the 2020 Gladiator the star of the lineup. Right from headlining the Easter Jeep Safari with as many as five concepts based on the Gladiator, to launching an online configurator to customize the pickup truck as per your needs, Jeep has done it all.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 1941 is the Only Outdoor Companion You’ll Need During Your European Adventures
Jeep has unveiled the Wrangler Rubicon 1941 at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Decked in a bevy of options and off-road accessories, the Mopar-tuned off-roader is basically a catalog on four wheels. It’s based on the Wrangler Rubicon, and it’s decked out with enough useful and functional upgrades to make your outdoor adventures less of a hassle. While the Wrangler Rubicon 1941 itself is unlikely to hit production in Europe, its presence in Geneva is less about showing off its exclusivity and more about showing off the many customizable options that are available to the European-spec Wrangler Rubicon. Best of all, the Wrangler Rubicon 1941’s upgrades and accessories are all street-legal. If you want Mopar to build you one that’s to the exact specifications of the version sitting in Geneva, there’s a roadmap that can make that happen.
Built on the success of its predecessors with the hopes and dreams to carry on the legacy of an icon, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is the definition of model evolution. It’s not dramatically different, but it’s far from being the same. With the JK Wrangler running from 2007 to 2018, it’s quite possible that the JL Wrangler will have as long a stay on the market and it’s a good thing that Jeep did it right. It’s the perfect blend of off-road prowess and creature comforts suitable for those who engage in lengthy road trips. It is the definition of having your cake and eating it too. This generation of the Wrangler comes with improved aerodynamics, improved safety, and plenty of modern tech. More importantly, though, are the removable body panels that carried over from the previous model. There’s also a new power-retractable hardtop, a soft top, and the three-piece freedom top. And, now that the windshield is non-structural, it folds down much easier, and the new A-pillar will provide protection in the event of a rollover. The JL Wrangler has been on the market for more than a year now, and we’re still all googly-eyed over it, so we’ve decided to feature it as our wallpaper of the day. We’ve picked our favorite desktop and mobile wallpapers for you below, but we have a huge gallery at the bottom of the page for you to choose from as well.
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.

Donut Media Dives Deep on the Jeep Cherokee: Video
The Jeep Cherokee is easily one of the most recognizable names in the world of SUVs, broadly considered as the first modern SUV, one that offered practicality, off-road ability, and luxury, all in one package.
The Cherokee brand is over 40 years old now and still going strong. Born as a cheaper, more compact version of the Wagoneer, the Cherokee was actually the first vehicle which was referred to as a "sport-utility vehicle" in the manufacturer brochures. Since then, the Cherokee has grown larger, and nowadays, you can choose either the compact Cherokee or the mid-size Grand Cherokee.
