Luckily, the 2017 Patriot is true to its style and is unmistakably a Jeep SUV. It was designed to attract SUV drivers who want true off-roading capability with traditional Jeep styling, all at an affordable price.
Many manufacturers don’t include a lot of standard equipment. But, Jeep does, and the Patriot Sport offers a host of standard equipment, including Uconnect handsfree, along with SiriusXM Radio. On the Latitude models, owners are treated to Automatic headlamps. There are some options when it comes to other equipment, with the ParkView model, you can order the rear backup camera, which makes it easier to navigate in parking lots, and with the Patriot Latitude, you can even opt for automatic temperature control.

While you can invest and get a higher end model of the Jeep Patriot, there are enough standard luxuries that should keep you happy. For serious off-roaders, you should love the Hill-start Assist, electronic roll mitigation, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes. Not to mention, if you are stuck in the fog, you will love the fog lamps. As mentioned, it comes with Uconnect handsfree and SiriusXM Radio, along with a one-year subscription to the service. On the inside, you will enjoy outside temperature display, illuminated cup holders, sunscreen glass, rear fold-flat 60/40 folding seat, cruise control, sliding visors with mirror and a rear window defrost and wiper.

If you want to experience one on a test drive, come on down to Chapman Chrysler Jeep, and you are sure to fall in love with the 2017 Jeep Patriot compact.
While Jeeps are known to offer a superior off-roading experience, things are changing, and the company is making SUVs that are also comfortable on the inside. With the Uconnect Media Center and included iPod interface,you can have a fun time while on the road. To make the driving experience more fun the Jeep Patriot has nine Boston Acoustic speakers and a premium sound system. When listening to music with your sunroof open, you will see how great the Jeep Patriot Compact is.
Jeep is finishing up touches on getting its 2018 Jeep Wrangler ready for production. The company is under a lot of pressure as it wants to keep loyal followers happy and wants to change as little as possible. On the other hand, innovation at any auto company is key, especially when it comes to creating off-roading SUVs. Without a doubt, engineers and designers are working hard to keep everyone happy.
Currently, there isn’t a lot of information about the next-generation Wrangler. It’s known as JL internally, and based on spy shots and revelations made by a few insiders, it’s going to be another great SUV. The Jeep Wrangler is going to show up at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and people in the industry are excited, and people who want to buy a new Wrangler are also sure to be excited.
The SUV is emblematic, and the company knows not too mess with the icon. The new model will feature a tall grille and have seven vertical slots, flared fenders, a rear-mounted spare tire and round headlights. The overall look and silhouette won’t change a lot. One big change is that the turn signals will move a bit –to the fenders from the grille. To improve the aerodynamics, the new Wrangler will have a more rakish windshield. At the back end, it will have new-look lights, which are mainly inspired by the ones in the Renegade.
To shed some weight, the hood and doors are going to be made of aluminum; this is according to a supplier memo that was leaked late last year. There is speculation that the Wrangler’s removable top might be changed greatly. It may have a series of individual panels, which will be removable. With that setup, owners will be able to go topless quickly, and it will be easy to store on board.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler should come with a four-cylinder, along with options for a V-6 and diesel engine. There are also reports that Jeep will offer a hybrid version, which will get greater fuel efficiency, all without sacrificing off-roading ability. While there can be, and is, a lot of speculation, it’s pretty obvious that the company won’t make any huge changes. If you want to check out a current Jeep Wrangler, you should take one for a spin at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.
Jeep goes out of its way to make great off-roading vehicles that are fun to drive on and off the road. Whether you get a 2017 Jeep Wrangler or wait until a 2018 version comes out, you aren’t going to regret your decision. When looking at other off-roading machines, it’s obvious that Jeep creates vehicles that are truly above the rest. At the same time, over the years, the company has made changes, and it’s a technologically-advanced machine with plenty of bells-and-whistles. Sadly, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler won’t be ready for purchase till late 2017 or early 2018. Either way, no matter what Jeep you have, you are sure to be happy and enjoy it fully.
Recently, Jeep confirmed that a pickup would be in its lineup in the near future. This was met with a lot of excitement by people who love the off-roading ability of Jeep SUVs but want the convenience of having a well-built pickup truck. However, if you are in the mood for a different Jeep flavor, you may have to wait a little longer. According to CEO Mike Manley, the pickup won’t enter production into late 2019.
The auto manufacturer is also contemplating naming the truck. Other Jeep pickups were called the Gladiator (later the J-series), Comanche and original Willys Jeep Truck. The name that makes the most sense is the Gladiator as it was the name used in a Wrangler-based concept that was rolled out in 2005. In the past, the trucks were made at Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s plant in Toledo, Ohio, and this new version should be built here, as well.
While Jeep is not starting production yet, this is, in a way, good news for Jeep. The automaker already has a full plate as its redesigned Compass is gaining in popularity. At the same time, Jeep is working on a redesigned Grand Cherokee and a Grand Wagoneer full-size SUV. Jeep is being a bit cautious here, which should be good news for anyone wanting to buy any model. The company doesn’t want to rush things and hurt quality. At the same time, this will end up being a nearly two-year delay, which isn’t good news to anyone who is excited to buy a Jeep pickup.
Jeep has a history of producing SUVs that can go anywhere in the world. While a lot of SUV manufacturers designed SUVs with car drivers in mind, Jeep has always stuck to its roots and made SUVs that can actually do well in the mud, snow and rocks. Jeep has produced trucks for decades, beginning in 1947 and ending with the Comanche in 1992. While details haven’t been released, they should offer a quality pickup, including multiple options. The company discontinued the Jeep Comanche in 1992 in order to focus on the Dodge Dakota, which was itself discontinued in 2011.
The company, for years, has teased potential buyers with concepts and pickup ideas. For example, the Jeep-J12 was produced for the Moab Easter Jeep Safari off-roading event in 2012. A Jeep Gladiator, which was based off the Jeep Wrangler platform, was also shown off at the at the 2005 Detroit Auto Show. While there are no Jeep pickups on the production line yet, if you want to check out or test drive any current models, you can head to Chapman Chrysler Jeep and see what you think.
A Jeep pickup truck, whatever it ends up being called, is sure to be received with open arms. It’s probably going to cost more than other pickups on the market, though with the Jeep name and the off-roading capabilities, a new Jeep pickup is certainly worth the investment. Though, until there is an official announcement and production gets started, anyone looking at getting a new Jeep pickup shouldn’t get too excited, yet.
The 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is a great SUV for anyone who craves driving in the mud. Sadly, many SUVs now are made for people who just want to show off or are too cool to buy a minivan. But, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is a true SUV that can handle all you throw at it, all at a price much lower than its high-priced imports. Here are a few reasons to check one out.
True off-roading capability:
Nothing is more annoying than plopping down tens of thousands of dollars for an SUV only to see it underperform off the pavement. Many SUVs are built with car frames, which makes them pretty weak once you hit the mud or rocks. This is not true with the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, or any Jeeps for that matter. When you pull off the pavement and onto the dirt, you will feel more natural off-roading than ever before. With a lot of clearance, when you adjust the off-road settings, you can avoid all but the biggest rocks and other obstacles. Coupled with one of the most advanced 4×4 systems available, you will enjoy superior, all-weather capability that will get you out of the biggest jams.
While the SUV has amazing off-roading capability, the exterior is also sure to impress. With a large, aerodynamic spoiler, a sleek headlamp design and an overall sleek and futuristic looking body, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is one to turn heads. With integrated fog lamps, along with available Bi-Xenon High-Intensity Discharge Headlamps, the front of the SUV certainly looks aggressive. If you want to spend a bit more, you can get the Summit California Edition, which includes goodies like 20-inch platinum aluminum wheels, body-color door handles and much more. Either way, after you take it off-roading and wash it up again, it will look as good as new. Check one out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep, and you sure to love what you are looking at.
Safety and Security:
The safety and security of the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk probably isn’t the first consideration of a potential buyer. However, with front and rear crumple zones that help absorb the impact, along with seven airbags, you can feel at ease whether you are flying through the mud or driving down the freeway. While this beast feels more at home on the trails, with things like Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning, along with Blind Spot Monitoring, you can drive down the freeway with confidence.
The interior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is surprisingly comfortable for an SUV with so much off-roading capability. With Rich ski gray Laguna leather-trimmed seats, the cockpit is sure to feel comfortable to drivers. Though, many won’t care, and they will, instead, get excited about the UCONNECT and UCONNECT ACCESS systems, where they can enjoy a 3g wireless access hotspot, superior speakers and control of just about everything. Yes, whether barreling down the trails or commuting to and from work, you can be comfortable and enjoy all the latest tech.
Anyone who loves to go off-roading knows that the Jeep brand is one of the best brands to consider. In fact, it’s synonymous with going off-road, and the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is one vehicle that you can enjoy in the mud, on the rocks and anywhere in between. And, there is good news for anyone who wants an improved version on the already great brand. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon has improved off-road performance.
Thanks to a front axle upgrade, off-road rock rails, along with heavy-duty cast differential covers, the vehicle has an increased 4×4 capability and protection from even the most rugged and challenging terrain. With new 17-inch Low Gloss Granite crystal-painted aluminum wheels, you can show off your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon. Also, with option body color and unique red interior accents, the Rubicon Recon is sure to turn heads.
But, while you will surely love the outside of the Rubicon Recon, you are sure to love the inside too. It comes with a standard set of features, including an eight-speaker audio system that is sure to be loved on the freeway, barreling down the highway or in the mud. The black leather heated seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are sure to make the experience that much more enjoyable. If you want to enjoy the sun and open air while out in the wilderness, you can with the Premium Sunrider soft top, which is standard.
Jeep is pumped up and excited to start offering the new and improved Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon. In fact, with plenty of Rubicon decals all over the seats, seat belts and interior, it’s obvious that the company is proud of what it’s offering. One thing that sets Jeep above the rest is that the company designs vehicles for off-roading, which is a huge plus for anyone who actually wants to go in the mud and have a good time. Other companies make nice looking SUVs that flounder as soon as they leave the pavement. With the steel front number that has a winch-capable design, along with removable end caps, you can reduce damage on the trail and get into, and out of, more trouble. This feature alone really separates itself from other SUVs on the market.
Drivers who love to feel the driving experience even more will love the unique gauge cluster that offers a host of read-outs including oil pressure, transmission and coolant temperatures, individual tire pressure and a digital speed readout. While the Rubicon Recon has extra features and certainly feels comfortable on the inside, the company didn’t go overboard as it’s still truly a workhorse 4×4 SUV that you can easily explore the wild with.
The 2017 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon is a great off-roading vehicle that can also be enjoyed while on the road.
