2018 Wrangler

 

 

Anyone who drives a Jeep probably doesn’t do it to save money on gas. But, this does not mean that many drivers would not love to save a little more at the pump, all while doing their part to save the environment. For this reason, Jeep CEO Mike Manley wants to improve the MPG of the coveted Jeep Wrangler. At the same time, the CEO does not want to mess up the brand or devalue it, in any way. This is obviously a fine line, and one that he does not want to cross.

The most important part about owning a Jeep is that it is an amazing, hardcore machine that can tackle mountains, snow, ice and mud, and Jeep will not do anything to make it harder to off-road. With the Jeep Wrangler, and all Jeeps in general, it is important to leave the styling on the outside alone – the brand is very recognizable, and Jeep did not want to do anything to damage its reputation, and for good measure; the CEO has said as much.

To save gas, there are two large options, among with many other small ones. But, it essentially comes down to weight and engine size. Jeep probably will not mess with the engine size as people like the power of its engines. So, to save gas and make the SUV a little more nimble, the company will most likely drop the weight, though not by too much as it is a rugged SUV that can certainly tackle a lot. While the SUV will not go all-aluminum, the frame will be much lighter, yet much stronger, and it will certainly have plenty of hang-on body parts that are going to be aluminum. This will lower the weight without sacrificing the overall structure. To see how strong a Jeep Wrangler performs now, check one out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep. With solid axles at both ends and a strong frame, you are sure to love the Jeep Wrangler, among many other models.

While weight reduction and smaller or more efficient engines are a couple of ways to save gas, there is another way. With improved aerodynamics, the Wrangler should be faster and more efficient. Though, there will be some subtle changes such as the windshield being raked back a bit more, which should not only make it look better, but it will make it that much more efficient. And, the eight-speed transmission should help drivers save money as it is more efficient than the standard transmissions of the past. All in all, with more aluminum parts and a solid aerodynamic setup, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler should impress Jeep Wrangler fans and non-fans alike.

According to many, the next generation Wrangler will sport an eight-speed automatic, and it will offer a diesel engine, as well as a four-cylinder turbo power. This shows that Jeep is not resting on its laurels, and if you are a fan of Jeep and SUVs, you will certainly be happy that Jeep and the Wrangler is not going to let you down the future.

Compass

 

 

 

The Compass and Patriot are two SUVs that many people have come to love. The Patriot is a compact SUV that has gained a large fanbase who will be sad to see it go. The same could be said about the adventure-seeking SUV, the Jeep Compass. While this is true, fans of both SUVs should not shed a tear as Jeep plans to unveil a new version, that combines the greatness of both SUVs, in Los Angeles in November, at the North American Auto Show.

This should not come as a surprise as the company has wanted to replace the two aging compact SUVs for some time, and this has been anticipated for several years by people in the industry. Originally, Jeep planned to unveil the vehicle at the New York International Auto Show in March, but the company delayed the plans, which means they still may be finishing up the details. If you can’t wait and want to check out any other Jeep, head to Chapman Chrysler Jeep and test drive one of many great SUVs that the company has released in the last decade.

Don’t worry, while the company delayed the unveiling until November, this doesn’t mean that it has a delay in production. Rather, the company is finishing up the details of the new SUV. There is reason to get excited as both models are popular. Buyers bought 118,464 Patriots and 66,698 Compasses in the United States in 2015. This represents an impressive 21 percent of the brand’s total sales in the country. However, many Jeep enthusiasts are not impressed by the Patriot nor the Compass, and many are hoping that Jeep has more in store for the new model.

People who can’t wait to get their eye’s on the new model can look to Brazil as the company plans to start production sometime between late September and the first weeks of November. Though, these models will, unfortunately, only be sold in South America as they will be produced in the Pernambuco, Brazil plant. Though, as always, there are differences between models built in different countries, and things may vary, widely.

The new version of the Patriot and Compass will be built in Toluca, Mexico, and they will go on sale early next year in the United States. Fans of Jeep should also rejoice as the development of the next generation of the Wrangler is also nearly compete, and the company plans to reveal it to the public in the first half of next year. The new version will have better fuel economy, and it will weigh less, all while providing the same great off-roading experience.

While not everyone is a huge fan of the Compass and Patriot, there are a lot of benefits to either SUV. If you are an owner of one or have owned one in the past, you may want to pay attention as the new model is sure to be fun to drive, interesting and exciting. If you are not willing to wait, you can surely find another Jeep SUV that works for your lifestyle.
