2017 Jeep Compass, Something For Everyone

 

The 2017 Jeep Compass Limited is a crossover that has the heart of a real Jeep. This vehicle has helped make Jeep a major player in the compact crossover segment. It’s stylish, comfortable, versatile and delivers great performance, and if you want to see it in action, check it out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

The Compass’ design is clean and purposeful. It has relatively short overhangs and a wide, stable stance. The Limited and Trailhawk models sport a distinctive black roof that makes them stand out in a crowd. The 2017 Jeep Compass has comfortable heated leather-wrapped seats and a thick-rimmed steering wheel. When the temperature is under 32 degrees, the auto-on system automatically heats the driver seat and steering wheel when the engine starts. Used with remote start, you’ll get into a warm Compass ready to roll.

All Jeep Compasses have a touchscreen UConnect infotainment system. A five-inch version comes standard on the Latitude and Sport models, with the option to upgrade to the seven-inch version. In both the Limited and the Trailhawk, the high-end UConnect 4 with its 8.5-inch screen comes standard and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Jeep’s sure-footed Active Drive four-wheel-drive system lets you use a knob located on the center console to choose between auto, snow, sand and mud calibrations. This changes the amount of slip allowable, providing optimal control no matter the surface. The Trailhawk model also has hill-descent control as well as low range which produces a 20:1 crawl ratio. Add the standard skid-plates on the Trailhawk and this vehicle can take you just about anywhere with relative ease.

The 2017 Jeep Compass is powered by a 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine featuring a Multi-Air variable valve lift system from Fiat. This 180 horsepower engine has more than enough power to make this 3,327-pound curb weight vehicle really go. It’s paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission Chrysler has steadily improved over the years. Together they give the 2017 Jeep Compass excellent performance and a modest 21 miles per gallon, even on slick, snow covered roads.

With a 103-inch wheelbase and passenger volume of about 96 cubic feet, the Compass can comfortably carry four adults. Behind the seats it has cargo space totaling 27 cubic feet. That’s more than enough to fit lots of groceries or ski gear and luggage for four people out for a weekend adventure.

This second-generation Compass beats its predecessor by miles. If you are in the market for a crossover utility vehicle built to handle bad weather with ease, the 2017 Jeep Compass is an excellent choice. It’s a compact crossover designed to handle terrain only Jeep Wranglers and CJs used to be bold enough to take on. The Jeep Compass Trailhawk can handle anything you encounter on or off-road. For starting at about $21,000 you can get a front-drive Compass Sport. The rough, rugged and raw Trailhawk base model starts at $28,695. You can also get a fully loaded Jeep Compass Limited for about $34,955.

2019 Cherokee is all Jeep

 

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee has gotten some stylish new upgrades and a whole host of good-looking new trims, but when it comes to handling, durability, versatility and performance the new Cherokee is all Jeep. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee was one of the stats of the North American International Auto Show which was held in Detroit. Not only do Americans love it, Canadians regularly purchase more than 250,000 units of the iconic automobile each year. This makes it a top seller in the intermediate SUV segment.

The 2019 model of the Jeep Cherokee comes equipped with a brand new global engine and features five trim levels. Plus, its available in 12 exterior colors and with five different wheel choices. Part of the reason for this is FCA Canada knows Canadian buyers really enjoy customizing their Jeep Cherokees. You can get any type of Jeep Cherokee you want at Chapman Chrysler Jeep. There are plenty of Jeep Cherokees to check out and take for a test drive.

The standard engine on the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is a new inline, turbocharged four-cylinder, 2.0-litre direct injection number with 270 horsepower which produces 295 pound/feet of torque. It works in tandem with a sweet nine-speed automatic transmission. Buyers of the 2019 Cherokee can also choose from two other engines. A 271 horsepower, 3.2-liter V6 engine that produces 239 pound/feet of torque. The second option is a 2.4 liter, inline four-cylinder engine that has 180 horsepower and delivers 170 pound/feet of torque. According to Jeep, properly equipped, the V6 can tow 4,500 pounds. That’s the best in its class.

The rear cargo bed on the 2019 Jeep Cherokee has a volume of 27 cubic feet, 8 centimeters more than before. Plus, buyers can choose from three different 4X4 for their off-road adventures. The 5 trims available on the new Cherokee are the Sport, North, Limited as well as the Overland models. They come with the all-new Jeep Active Drive I. Jeep engineers reduced the vehicle’s weight while enhancing the efficiency of its next-generation rear drive module. This fully automatic system delivers seamless operation at any speed whether in or out of four-wheel drive.

Jeep Active Drive II, available on the Cherokee Limited, North and Overland models, has a unique two-speed Power Transfer Unit with low range and torque management. Its 4-Low mode locks both the front and the rear drive shafts for towing or low-speed power. Low range creates a 2.92:1 gear reduction. This enhances climbing ability and crawl ratios for severe off-road conditions. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee also has Jeep Active Drive Lock. This combines the Jeep Active Drive II characteristics with a locking rear differential which provides superior low-speed traction helpful in severe off-road conditions. All Jeep Trailhawk models have Jeep Active Drive Lock.

The system’s 5 customized settings are Auto, Sport, Snow, Rock and Sand/Mud. Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk models with the standard off-road package are all Trail Rated.
The “Trail Rated” badge indicates the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk can handle all types of challenging off-road conditions.

All-New Jeep Wrangler Debuts At CES 2018

 

The all-new Jeep Wrangler made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in Las Vegas recently. And it was the perfect setting for this big reveal because the 2018 Jeep Wrangler features a range of new cutting-edge technology. With one fell swoop, Jeep has taken one of its most legendary vehicles and brought it right up to date. The vehicle now has many of the newest technological ‘must-haves’ the modern automobile buyer expects to see when the latest version of any automotive brand is offered to the public.

For automobile manufacturers, the importance of each year’s Consumer Electronics Show, which is held in Las Vegas, is undeniable. It has now become all the more vital because of all the breakthroughs vehicle manufacturers are making in driverless and all-electric automotive technology at a breakneck pace. This year, visitors to the Consumer Electronics Show were given a pleasant, if unexpected surprise. CES 2018 saw one of the world’s oldest and most enduring automotive designs on display. It was the all-new Jeep Wrangler for 2018. While to the uninitiated, the new Wrangler may look a lot like the old Wrangler, the vehicle has changed in significant ways.

Jeep has four vehicles that are on display at this year’s show. The goal is to showcase the company’s advanced technology found in this latest iteration of its iconic vehicles. Those features include the fourth generation of the Uconnect system. It has an 8.4-inch display as well as 4G LTE connected services. Perhaps the biggest change is the never-before-seen, all-new, Jeep Adventure Reality app which makes its debut with the 2018 Wrangler. Jeep’s new Uconnect system features more vivid imagery, sharper graphics, multi-touch gestures, enhanced processing power, along with the ability to support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration. Check out all the tech, and more, at Chapman Chrysler Jeep. At Chapman Chrysler Jeep, you can check out the full range of inventory and find the Jeep Wrangler right for you.

FCA Global’s Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand, explained the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler was developed and engineered to contain more advanced technology and safety features than ever before. According to Manley, FCA is proud to showcase the company’s commitment to meeting the increasing desire of consumers for vehicle connectivity that’s both unique and innovative. Manley explained that Jeep’s award-winning Uconnect systems are created to ensure consumers have access to a wide array of conveniently connected features and services that help to deliver what drivers and passengers consider the ultimate driving experience. That evolution can be enjoyed both on-road and off with the new Jeep Wrangler.

Jeep will have four new Wrangler models displayed at the 2018 CES. They are a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sahara, two Jeep Wrangler Rubicon models, as well as a Mopar-modified Jeep Wrangler Sport. The Jeep Wrangler Sport has been uniquely customized using a number of Mopar-made Jeep accessories and performance parts.

Jeep’s Adventure Reality app let’s buyers ‘build’ their own Wrangler. The app is an online configuration tool buyers can use to choose between two and four doors, as well as wheels, colors and trim levels. The apps’ augmented reality aspect is what makes it more than just another configurator.

 

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid has a starting price of $39,995 and has several new standard and available features. Last year, Chrysler released the first gasoline-electric minivan in the industry. With their all-new plug-in model Pacifica Hybrid which can be recharged externally, Chrysler has created a very innovative vehicle.

The Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid Minivan comes in three trim levels. They are the Hybrid Touring Plus, Hybrid Touring L and Hybrid Limited. All 2018 Pacifica models come with the excellent SafetyTec Group, ParkSense Rear Park Assist with Stop, Rear Cross Path detection and Blind-spot Monitoring, as standard equipment. All models have the improved Uconnect 4 audio systems as well.

The exterior features new body-color mirrors and wheels on the Touring Plus, while the Hybrid Touring L has both a Stow ‘n Place chrome roof rack and bright body-side molding. New colors, Ocean Blue Metallic and Copper Pearl Coat, and dual captain’s chairs replacing the three-person bench in the middle row, have been added for 2018. To check out all the amenities on the Chrysler Pacific Minivan, take one for a spin at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

Another unique feature of the 2018 plug-in hybrid Chrysler Pacifica is it can recharge its on-board battery by connecting to a power source outside the vehicle. In electric vehicle mode, a single charge can power the vehicle for about 35 miles. It gets 35 mpg when powered by its gasoline engine alone. The EPA has rated it at 84 mpg/e in everyday driving when using both electric power and gasoline.

The 2018 hybrid Pacifica has a V-6, 3.6-liter Atkinson-cycle engine that produces 260 horsepower when combined with the electric motor. Using battery power and a tank of gas, the vehicle has a 530 mile range. The electric motor connected to the specially-designed E-Flite electronically variable transmission which powers the front wheels of the Pacifica is surprisingly powerful. It delivers enough torque at startup to quickly get the vehicle moving.

Switching between electric and gasoline happens automatically when additional power for passing or climbing steep hills is needed. The hybrid system automatically chooses the driving mode that’s most efficient. However, the driver can override it.

The hybrid Pacific has several unique features. The instrument panel has hybrid-specific features which help with monitoring driving efficiency and battery power. The instrument panel has a unique seven-inch TFT display. The panoramic sunroof has three panes that lets people in all three seating rows see the sky.

The hybrid model’s fully regenerative braking system helps recharge the battery while slowing the vehicle. A special app downloaded to a smartphone can remotely control the hybrid’s heating and air conditioning and set the battery pack’s charging times when the Pacifica hybrid is using an outside power sources.

Available features on the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in hybrid minivan include heated and ventilated leather front seats, Adaptive Cruise Control, a 360-degree Surround View system and a KeySense programmable key fob which can remotely control some features of the vehicle. There’s also Chrysler’s Uconnect Theater which gives Android phones and tablets wireless streaming capability, an integrated Stow ‘n Vac system and hands-free rear liftgate and sliding doors.

A Look At The New Jeep JL Wrangler

 

The brand new 2018 ‘JL’ generation Jeep Wrangler is here. The company has revamped the most iconic and recognizable 4×4 it has ever produced. The current ‘JK’ generation four-door Jeep Wrangler had remained largely unchanged for 11 years. Jeep debuted the new model at the LA Auto Show this year.

To please Wrangler fans, the 2018 Jeep version retains the rugged, somewhat boxy look of the previous generation Wrangler. However, the new two-door Wrangler is 2.8 inches longer while the four-door model is longer than its predecessor by 3.8 inches. The new Wrangler also has an aluminum body that’s 200 pounds lighter.

The new Wrangler has larger headlights, with LED beams as an option. The fender flares are smaller and have LED daytime running light integrated into them. There’s also a new CJ-inspired grille, as well as new bumpers on the front and rear. The Rubicon models now have 33-inch tires, fenders painted in the body-color, plus a hood with a vented power dome. The 2018 Wrangler has a manual soft-top roof with a new spring mechanism, allowing one person to raise or fold it. The Wrangler also has a power-folding soft-top option. A Freedom Top hardtop with lighter removable panels is also available. No matter what version you want, you can check out any Jeep Wrangler at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

The changes to the new Jeep Wrangler are more noticeable in the interior. The new upscale cabin has push-button ignition, a 7-inch driver display located between analog gauges, 7-inch UConnect infotainment system with the option to upgrade to an 8.4-inch display featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and other technological advances. Plus, the four-door models have more rear legroom, more comfortable seating positions and larger windows for improved visibility.

Three new engine options and two updated transmissions power the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Chrysler’s Pentastar V6, 285 horsepower engine which delivers 260 pound-feet of torque is the base motor. It can be mated with either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic. Drivers can choose between a 2.0-liter turbocharged, e-assisted, 270 horsepower four-cylinder engine which provide 295 pound-feet of torque and a 260 horsepower, 3.0-liter turbodiesel which kicks 442 pound-feet of torque. Those engines are exclusively mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. A plug-in hybrid Wrangler will be available in 2020.

The new Wrangler Sport, Sport S as well as the Sahara models have the four-wheel drive Command-Trac NV241 transfer case which has a 2.72:1 low range and a Dana 30 front axle and a Dana 35 rear axle as standard equipment. A Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential is also available. The Wrangler Sahara models can now have the Selec-Trac transfer case which has permanent 4WD. Rubicons get serious off-road hardware. It includes front and rear Dana 44 axles with 4.10 gearing, along with a Rock-Trac transfer case which has 4:1 low-range gearing, as well as Tru-Lok electronic locking differentials. The vehicle also has front sway bars with an electronic disconnect.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler appears to have improved on the JK significantly, but still offers the great look and superior capability Jeep lovers expect.
