Chrysler recently announced that they are bringing back the Jeep Cherokee, but in name only. The 2014 Jeep Cherokee will be the replacement for the Jeep Liberty. Rugged isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when we see these pics. What do you think?
10.3.11 – Chrysler Group LLC is reporting an increase in Jeep Brand Vehicle Sales of 24 percent for September 2011. The Jeep Wrangler led the way, but the increase was also bolstered by a whopping 306% increase in Jeep Compass sales and a 78% increase in Grand Cherokee sales. These increase can be attributed to the 2012 redesign for the 2012 Grand Cherokee and the new Trail Rated 4×4 capability of the new Compass. Chrysler is showing a 27% increase across the board for all it’s vehicle lines (Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Chrysler). Great news for Jeep lovers.

From Motor Trend:
“Jeep’s never-ending streak of special-edition Wranglers continues, but the latest edition won’t be sold in our market. The new 2012 Wrangler Arctic Edition, which debuts at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, will only be offered in Europe.
Chrysler’s official press release says the Wrangler Arctic was inspired by the terrain found in its namesake land, as it provides the grueling and demanding environments the Wrangler was engineered to conquer.” Perhaps, but this go-anywhere, do-anything SUV isn’t given any specialized equipment that facilitates sub-zero travel; instead, the Arctic is essentially a spiffy dress-up kit for the Wrangler Sahara and Wrangler Unlimited Sahara.”

Jeep released pictures and information today on the 2012 Wrangler:
From the Jeep Blog:
”We just didn’t stop at the flywheel as the new five-speed automatic has been specially calibrated for enhanced shifting while driving both on and off the road. For all you number crunchers out there, check out these stats – 21 miles per gallon and zero-to-sixty arrives at an impressive 8.4 seconds. They say it’s a challenge to improve and icon, well to that we say, the 2012 Wrangler will have even more capabilities on wherever your journey takes you!”
There’s also a great gallery of 2012 Jeep Wrangler Pictures available of Jeep’s Facebook Page.
It’s that time of year again! Whether we like it or not, Winter is on the way. Is your Jeep ready for all the foul (or wonderful, depending on your perspective) weather that’s headed your way? There are a couple of must-have’s for your Jeep in regards to protecting your vehicle’s interior from all the snow, slush, water, salt, and sand that our roads and parking lots can send its way.

Jeff Bennett of the Wall Street Journal is reporting:
“Chrysler is pulling a page from the video game industry play book by mixing a few “Easter eggs” into its new Jeep products which begin rolling into showrooms over the next few months. Executives pointed out a few of the “surprises” tucked away on some on the Jeeps during a media showing of the vehicles at the company’s headquarters Monday.
Easter eggs are undocumented features that are included in everything from video games to movies…
“They are small homages or acknowledgements to our origins – fun, unobtrusive ‘gifts’ that perhaps only owners will know about. Why? Just Jeep studio getting their fun on and being proud of their products…nothing more,” said Mark Allen, Chrysler’s head of Jeep Design.”
According to egmCarTech:
“Earlier this week we learned that Jeep CEO Mike Manley showed off a concept Jeep –pickup truck hybrid to dealers at Chrysler Group LLC’s 2010 Dealer Announcement Show in Orlando. According to sources that spoke with PickupTrucks.com, the Jeep pickup concept has been given the thumbs up for production.
Insiders say that the production version of the Jeep pickup will debut sometime in the third quarter of 2011 badged as a 2012 model. The model is reported to be based on the four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited platform but will have a two-door regular cab layout for extra space behind the front seats for storage.”
Chrysler Group LLC released pictures of the 2011 Jeep Wrangler this morning. New models will feature a re-worked interior and body-matching colored hard tops. New body colors for 2011 include: Detonator Yellow, Deep Cherry Red, Sahara Tan, Cosmos Blue and Bright White.
Production of the new 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited began earlier this week at the Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio.
One thing’s for sure; this isn’t your Grandad’s Jeep! – JW
