A true advocate for breast cancer awareness and supporting its initiatives in Southern Nevada, Chapman Warm Springs General Sales Manager Lawrence Ennis and his work team participated in the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on May 6 in downtown Las Vegas. With a passion for finding a cure, Ennis led “Team Ennis” and its more than 25 participants during this year’s race.

Ennis’ passion runs deep, as his mother lost her own battle to breast cancer. He and his team at Chapman Warm Springs have coined their own “Pink Saturdays” in which employees wear pink clothing, pink ribbons and pink bracelets each Saturday to raise awareness for the cause. In addition, Ennis’ office, business cards, license plate holder and more don the signature pink ribbon.

“We’re a family at Chapman and it brings me great joy to see my team come together to join in a cause so dear to me, not just at this event, but all year long,” Ennis said. “We all know someone who has battled or is battling breast cancer, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation is an organization we’re proud to support.”

Ennis can often be found giving back to those in need alongside his son, Aaron. He is a member of the American Cancer Society’s Las Vegas chapter, and both family members donate their time to their local church. Ennis was born in San Francisco.

Ennis received his masters of business administration in 1990 from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he made the prestigious dean’s list. He became a salesman after answering an advertisement in the paper and has found it his calling ever since.

The new Jeep Wrangler pickup is almost here. In fact, some spy photographers say a camouflaged version of Jeep’s first new pickup in more than 25 years was seen recently. This new version of the Jeep Wrangler prototype is dramatically different from the one spotted being tested last year. These revelations have Jeep lovers very excited even though the new Jeep Wrangler pickup isn’t expected to hit the show room until over a year from now. Still as this new Jeep makes its way closer to production, the excitement is palpable. Automotive enthusiasts are waiting with bated breath to see Jeep’s newest pickup.

While the Jeep Wrangler spotted being tested last year had a Ram 1500 bed jury-rigged to it, the recently seen truck had a bed that was perfectly-integrated. The black polyester wrap with which it was covered also showed it had bulging classic Wrangler wheel arches and the vertical roof pillars meet the bed sides at a 90 degree angle creating a classic pickup profile. Plus the vehicle had a rear window that was the full width of the space between the two pillars. Inquiring minds want to know if the roof can be removed or the windshield folded down as in previous Wranglers? The spy photographers noted the hood wrap had holes where rubber bumpers for placing the windshield usually are.

The vehicle that was seen had the wheels and stance similar to the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. This suggests the new Wrangler pickup may have capabilities well-suited for hardcore off-roading much like the standard Wrangler that should find its way into showrooms and driveways in late 2017. The latest iteration of the Jeep Wrangler pickup will be listed as a 2019 model. Buyers will have several engines from which to choose. There is a four-cylinder diesel, a four-cylinder turbo as well as an improved version of the 3.6-liter, V6 engine currently available. There’s also the distinct possibility of a hybrid model being made available later. While the Jeep Wrangler pickup is crawling closer to production, if you want to check out any other Jeeps, you should head to Chapman Chrysler Jeep. There are plenty of Jeep Wranglers to check out and take for a test drive.

According the Mike Manley, Jeep brand boss, it is “incredibly unlikely” the new Jeep Wrangler pickup will have the 707 horsepower Hellcat V8 engine as an option. However, the engine will soon be an option for buyers of the most powerful SUV in the world, Jeep’s Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Plus the company also released a Hellcat-powered Trailcat concept vehicle this year. People planning to buy the new Jeep Wrangler pickup once it’s released can still hope or even petition the company to put a Hellcat under the hood of the soon-to-be-released truck.

Jeep has been producing groundbreaking automobiles for 75 years and the new Wrangler pickup promises to be a game changer. Should the company decide to give this off-roading beast a Hellcat engine, that would put smiles on the faces Jeep enthusiasts waiting for Jeep Wrangler’s latest entry into the pickup truck market. If the vehicle spotted parked on the roadside is indeed the new Jeep Wrangler pickup, with or without a Hellcat engine, it’s going to cause quite a stir.
