The 2017 Jeeps haven’t been added to Jeep’s website yet, but vehicles are already hitting dealer lots – spotted this white Grand Cherokee Trailhawk today and can confirm that the starting price for the new Jeep is $42,995 before options and destination fee. Continue reading
Jeep has finally returned the Trailhawk name to the vehicle it first appeared on; the Grand Cherokee. The biggest of Jeep’s Trailhawks represents a brand alignment more than an industry innovation; but it’s certainly one badass looking alignment. Continue reading
the Titan Warrior concept looks much better than the production model, in my opinion, and isn’t so over the top extreme to be out of the realm of possibilities for a future off road truck. Continue reading
This truck is as cool in person as I had hoped. A true throwback to the truck we all drooled over in the 80’s. Continue reading
Let me get this out of the way, and just say that the Renegade looks funny with a pickup bed. It might actually be the rag top/pickup combo that’s throwing me off, but in any regard, it’s weird. Looking at what Mark Allen and the Mopar team used to build this little trucklette can probably tell us a lot more about future Jeep design than the exterior appearance can. So let’s focus on that.
