Jeeps Five Year Plan


During the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Investors Day meeting it was revealed by Jeeps CEO Michael Manly the ambitious plans for the next half decade that are in store for the Jeep brand. The goal during that period is that FCA will launch Jeep as a lead global brand by boosting sales to 1.9 million units by 2018.

The beginning of this plan will be to launch the new Renegade late this summer that debuted in Geneva. Next will come a new unnamed compact SUV model that will replace the current Patriot and Compass that will arrive in mid 2016 to help celebrate Jeep’s 75th Anniversary. A new generation Wrangler arrives in mid 2017 which will be followed by the all-new Grand Cherokee later that same year. And as if that wasn’t enough the last new arrival will be a large, 3 row SUV that will have the classic Jeep Grand Wagoneer name.

Nothing but good things will be coming from Jeep.

Jeep at Beijing Motor Show

Jeep is making a huge splash at the Beijing Motor Show this year by rolling out four new concepts that are inspired by Chinese culture, design, and fashion. China is the second largest market for Jeep so it is no wonder they are trying to aim their designs towards the country and the market there that is growing rapidly. These four concepts are based off the Renegade, Cherokee, and Wrangler models.

Jeep Zi You Xia


The Zi You Xia which translate to “rebel” uses the Jeep Renegade for it’s concept. The concept shows off a more refined design that features a warm chocolate gray paint job with dark bronze and charcoal accents on the exterior and interior. Based off the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing for the color palette.

Jeep Cherokee Sageland


The Sageland is a concept that was inspired by the landmarks and scenery of Shangri-La Region. The ivory-tri-coat exterior with bronze and satin accents portrays the mystical landscape while the interior is Nappa leather seats with water blue accents meant to evoke traditional Chinese knot design, as well as door inserts mimicking the ornamental Chinese door knobs.

Jeep Cherokee Urbane


The Urbane features a “Maximum Steel” metallic paint job and black accents outside. This concept is after the megacity of China which translates to modern glamour and elegance. Inside, Chinese calligraphy highlights a piano black and red Nappa leather cabin.

Jeep Wrangler Sundancer


The Sundancer is a mix of fashion with sophistication. A tri-coat Chocolate Brown metallic color with gold accents. The fender flares feature a unique Golden Bronze tone-on-tone ghosted pattern, and the windows have been treated to bronze tinted glass. The interior also features a sleek look with Berry Baltique Semi-Aniline leather seats add a seriously premium flavor, which is enhanced by premium leather trim with hand-sewn stitching.

Jeep and Mopar team up for this event to showcase different production and prototype parts that are to better the Jeep for extreme trail performance and gauge customer interest.

Jeep Wrangler Level Red

The Wrangler Level Red was named after the highest level of difficulty an off-road trail can be designated as. The Wrangler comes equipped to handle the challenging off-road terrains with Jeep Performance Parts from 2-inch lift kit, Dana 44 crate axles, and Rock-Trac transfer case. The 3.6-liter engine with a six-speed manual transmission is improved with a cold-air intake and low restriction exhaust system.

The look of the Wrangler has been modified with a Mopar half-door kit and the exterior upgrades includes: a tire carrier, locking gas cap, hood prop kit and rock rails.

The capabilities of the Jeep don’t stop when the sun goes down, it is equipped with prototype LED headlamps and fog lamps. A soft top with front and rear half door kits gives the Jeep a open-air feel for more fun.

Jeep Cherokee Dakar

The Mojave Sand exterior color is dressed with Satin Black flourishes on the grille, hood, lower front fascia, door handles, mirror caps, wheel flares and badging. The prototype Mopar roof basket, mounted on production cross rails, provides plenty of space to transport gear and provisions.



2015 Jeep Renegade


Just when you thought that Jeep couldn’t get anymore new wave with their Jeeps here comes the 2015 Jeep Renegade to make you take a second glance. Jeep is importing this crossover built in Melfi Italy on a platform shared with the Fiat 500L. The Renegade takes the Jeep brand to new heights adding it to the category of ultra-compact crossovers which includes the KIA Soul and other competitors.

The size of the Jeep can only be described as cute in many scenarios and that could be a good thing if they are trying to reach a new market but for hardcore Jeep fans it could be a major turn off. The good news is Jeep has at least made one version that can withstand a dirty flogging on a mountain. Base models will be front-wheel drive, but full-time 4×4 (“Jeep Active Drive”) will be available on all models. All 4WD models offer Selec-Terrain dynamic modes that optimize traction for snow, sand, mud and, on the Trailhawk, rock crawling.

The Renegade offers the same features as the upper-level Jeeps but just in a smaller body such as a smartphone-integrated infotainment system with 5- and 6.5-inch touchscreens, a 7-inch configurable gauge display, and driver aids that include a rearview camera, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning and forward collision warning. The Renegade even borrows a cue from the Wrangler, allowing the outside in with dual sunroofs.
This Jeep should be hitting the market in 2015 January.

Full Metal Jacket Jeep

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 11.47.08 AM

Well if you thought R. Lee Ermey in Full Metal Jacket was a bad you know what than you are quite mistaken. This customized Jeep from Starwood Motors is completely deck out for some rugged adventures. Power comes from Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that’s good for 285 hp, allowing for a 0-60 time of 8.4 seconds. And if your looking to be bullet proof than the suspension on here will do you good and the lift kit as well. The interior also features kevlar lining and a tucked away safe. The thing is just as comfortable driving the highway as it is the rocks and pits off-road adventures bring. But for us this car is for dreamers cause the price tag around 100,000 is pretty steep but oh we can dream right…?

Jeep Celebrates its Heritage With Willys Edition Wrangler


The Jeep was originally built for military use and gained a reputation on the battlefields of World War II. After the war was over the civilian CJ was made available to the public. So to pay tribute to the old time beauty Jeep has created a limited 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition that will debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition is inspired by early Willys CJ (Civilian Jeep) models with exclusive styling and upgraded off-road goodies. Starting with a Wrangler Sport, these upgrades include a Dana 44 rear axle with limited-slip differential and 3.73 gears, along with meaty BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain tires mounted to the Willys Wheeler’s black 17-inch wheels. For more of a classic Jeep look, this model adds a gloss black grille, “Willys” hood stickers and rock rails to protect the side sills. Jeep is also tossing in a D-ring, tow strap and gloves that are all kept in a special carrying bag.

When it goes on sale early next year, the two-door Willys Wheeler Edition will start at $26,790 and the Unlimited four-door models at $30,590. That pricing reflects a premium of $3400 for either version, but there is quite a bit that comes with the package.

Jeep cares about your Dog


Having a large dog can be fun for chasing neighbors away you don’t like but when if comes for going on rides it can be a bit difficult to keep them safe and secure in one spot. The new 2014 Jeep Cherokee found a solution to that along with their Cargo Management System available they also added a folding pet enclosure to keep your your pet safe.

The tentlike enclosure clips into the floor of the Cherokee’s cargo area. The soft-sided pet compartment can be folded flat when not in use, and it comes with a carrying handle. Expanded to its full size, the enclosure takes up most of the cargo area of a Cherokee with the rear seats up. There’s plenty of room for a large dog, and the driver doesn’t have to worry about it jumping over the seats into the passenger compartment while the vehicle is in motion.

The pet carrier will be available this year as an accessory through the Mopar catalog, which carries a number of model-specific goodies, like first-aid kits, performance upgrades and even a tent that connects to a vehicle’s open tailgate.
