Driving the 2018s

by David Zatz on

On Friday, we released the official news on the 2018 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and US Fiat cars and trucks. Today, we’re providing our own, in-person impressions.

We took numerous cars and trucks over the off-road course, on the road course, and across a series of switchbacks (tight turns that sent us back and forth), on good and bad pavement, under different conditions, to see whether Jeeps are still Jeeps, big Dodges can handle well, the Fiat 124 is really as fun as it looks, and the Ram Rebel is actually able to go off-road.  What did we find out?
