2014 Jeep Cherokee

Jan 20th
Jeep is nothing if not tough. The brand originated from the vehicle that helped the Allies win World War II, and its modern-day customers gather by the thousands every year to spend Easter weekend driving through the desert outside Moab, Utah. But it’s no longer enough to just be tough, and the new Cherokee represents Jeep’s most recent attempt at…
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jan 19th
It has been three years since Jeep dramatically updated its Grand Cherokee, delivering a refined flagship with style and substance constructed on a chassis shared in large part with the Mercedes-Benz M-class. Jeep would be the first to admit that, in the past, it would slide out a new model and then ignore it for five years. No longer. The…
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jan 19th
Jeep’s current-generation Grand Cherokee SUV has been such a success that it probably didn’t need an update to keep things rolling, but one arrived for 2014 anyway. We aren’t complaining, what with the ’14 GC’s new eight-speed automatic transmission, refined interior, and even more handsome sheetmetal. We have previously driven the Hemi V-8, put the new V-6 diesel in a…
2016 Jeep Patriot

Jan 16th
As the least expensive model in the Jeep lineup eligible to wear the Trail Rated badge, the Patriot has its work cut out for it. Launched as a 2007 model, this compact SUV shares its platform with the Jeep Compass and the unloved and departed Dodge Caliber, yet it does a fair job of hiding those family ties under traditional…
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

Jan 14th
Okay, you’ve read about the other Grand Cherokees. You’ve read about diesel engines and Eco modes and Trail Rated. Now forget all of that. The SRT may be a Grand Cherokee, but its aspirations tend more to the Viper side of life. Appropriately, Jeep took us to Austin, Texas, and the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) to sample the new…
2014 Jeep Cherokee

Jan 2nd
No doubt the folks at Jeep want you to think of every new Cherokee as a Trailhawk model. Armed with a two-speed transfer case, a one-inch suspension lift, skid plates, three bright-red tow hooks, and Firestone all-terrain tires, the Trailhawk is the rock-crawling mascot for this otherwise soft-roading shopping trolley. You can see the Trailhawk in television commercials, splashing through…
2014 Jeep Wrangler 2-door

Dec 28th
Ford and Willys (say “will-is” not “will-eez”) built the original jeeps with which the Greatest Generation liberated Europe and the Pacific. Since 1950, when Willys finally won the right to turn the generic jeep nickname into the trademarked Jeep brand, there have been countless variations on the classic. And make no mistake, this is the classic: The current body-on-frame design…
2016 Jeep Compass

Dec 22nd
The 2016 Jeep Compass is a relic from another era. Introduced nearly a decade ago, the Compass—and its blockier Patriot twin—precede both Chrysler’s bankruptcy and its subsequent tie-up with Fiat. The compact crossover is a stark reminder of how far Chrysler and Jeep have come, especially when compared with the similarly sized (and priced), Fiat-era Jeep Renegade and Jeep Cherokee…
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel V-6 Review

Dec 21st
As if Jeep’s Grand Cherokee didn’t have enough iterations—gas V-6 or V-8, rear- or four-wheel drive, fire-breathing SRT, etc.—the model’s 2014 refresh brings with it a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6. The update also includes new exterior lighting, resculpted front and rear styling, and an updated interior.VM Motori Cento in Ferrara, Italy, produces the engine, which will be marketed under the EcoDiesel…
2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4-door

Dec 16th
Few things in the automotive world have remained consistent for 75 years. In spirit, purpose, and—to an extent—execution, the bloodline of the Jeep Wrangler has done so. The direct descendant of the “GP” military runabout whose production for the U.S. armed forces started in 1941, the 2016 Wrangler remains a preeminent off-roader with an instantly recognizable face, even as it…
2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Dec 8th
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is pretty much tops among mid-size SUVs when the road beneath isn’t actually a road. That said, there’s a difference between being capable of performing a task and being purpose-built to master it. And while every Wrangler is born to play in the dirt, none of the 10—yes, 10—different Grand Cherokee models offered for 2016 were…
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Nov 18th
Four is the new three, as in $4 and 40 highway miles per gallon. But come hell or high gas prices, there will always be hot cars, mighty trucks, and a privileged few who don’t sweat $100 fill-ups as long as the passing lane remains open for business.Back from some engineering R & R, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 lives…
