    The Jeep Wrangler is one of the prototypical American vehicles —except, perhaps, for the four-cylinder turbo engine, which is sourced from Termoli, Italy. The Jeep Cherokee may have started out with a set of basic dimensions from Alfa Romeo, but its four-cylinder turbo engine is   made in...

    This popped up on the Jeep forums a couple days ago: Apparently you can immobilize a JL by simply sticking electric tape over the proximity sensors! Teraflex is one of the top outfitters of aftermarket parts for Wranglers. They have produced accessories for Mopar in the past; their videos...

    If you have been waiting for your chance to drive the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL with the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and the eTorque mild hybrid system, your wait should just about be over. We have received word that the first examples of the first-ever Wrangler hybrid have started arriving in...

    You can drive a Jeep Wrangler with any engine you like, as long as it’s the Pentastar V6. That’s going to change, though; diesels are being tested, most likely for both North America and Europe, and four-cylinder turbos, with a hybrid system to help with the Wrangler’s substantial weight, are...

    There haven’t been a lot of 2.0 liter engines made so far, if a new Cherokee recall (NHTSA #18V344000) is any indication. Just 14 vehicles in the US, and one elsewhere, are being recalled because the engines may have been built without valve-stem keepers, which may allow the valve to drop into...

    Today I test drove a JL Sahara and a DT Laramie 4x4, along with a GMC Canyon SLT 4x4 diesel, a Colorado Z71, a GMC Sierra SLT 4x4, a Tacoma TRD Off-road 4x4 and a Tundra Limited TRD Off-road 4x4. I left the house determined to test drive midsize pickups. I never considered a full-size pickup...

    Hey guys, here is another article. This one is on eTorque and what FCA would need to do to change existing view on hybrids in general. Here is the a link to the article itself: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/changing-how-we-view-hybrids-aldo-martin/?published=t Below is the article text for...

    The Wrangler has long been criticized for its low gas mileage — though, when it had competitors such as the FJ Cruiser, they had roughly the same mileage. It seems it’s hard to make a go-anywhere 4x4 that can stand up to the worst trails, remain stable on the highway, and pass all the safety...

    If you haven’t been following the launch of the Wrangler closely, or just prefer to see things on video, you may be interested in this AutoGuide presentation that focuses on nine key features of the 2018-2019 Jeep Wrangler “JL.” Production of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler “JK,” a series that was...

    Brian Williams has captured another Jeep Wrangler Pickup , which we’ll go out on a limb and call the Scrambler, driving around Auburn Hills. The tailgate looks fairly traditional, killing rumors (which we hadn’t heard) that it would copy the Honda Ridgeline, a car-based pickup which is...

    The Jeep Wrangler “JK” started production twelve years ago — in 2006 — and stayed in production, often around the clock, until the final JK was built just this afternoon — at 3:35 pm, Eastern time. While its replacement, the Wrangler JL, got up to speed at the other Toledo plant, the JK...

    Automotive News wrote a nice, succinct send-off for JK, which ends production this coming Friday: A farewell toast to the Jeep 'JK' Wrangler After owning seven JKs, I know I will miss it dearly: 2008 Wrangler Sahara 6-speed soft top 2009 Wrangler Rubicon 6-speed hardtop 2009 Wrangler...

    The recall doesn’t cover many 2018 Jeep Wranglers, but it’s still a doozy, because the company is still trying to develop a remedy. Recall U27 covers just over 100 Wranglers sold in the US, presumably as well as a scattering sold elsewhere; and of these, only around half are probably an...

    Jeep’s new Wrangler-based pickup truck  has been confirmed for production — but you knew that. The news is this fairly close-up video, shot by Allpar readerB. Mac, of a thinly camouflaged “JT” doing on-road testing.   Since we won’t see production until factory renovations are finished...

    Before you step foot in the Jacob Javits Center on the west side of Manhattan — a few short blocks from Penn Station, and a subway-ride-and-walk from Grand Central or the Port Authority — the first thing you see is Camp Jeep. The event, with professional drivers taking on steel and gravel...

    FCA’s global head of design, and one of the two executives most known for reaching out to enthusiasts, was the hero after a crash in Addison Township, Michigan. Early this morning, a man drove his Ford Edge into a Ford Fiesta in the opposing-traffic lane on Lakeville Road.  Ralph Gilles and...

    Over 40,000 Caravans and Wranglers are being recalled because the brake switches can get stuck in the ON position. That means the brake lights could stay on all the time, and the vehicle could be shifted out of Park without the driver’s foot on the pedal. The recall is slated for the very end...

    It appears that FCA is going USB-C on its new vehicles — and it started with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, not the Ram 1500. Among all the other Ram upgrades, it was easy to miss one the new USB-C plugs, which have no “right-side up” or “upside-down.”   The above Bob Mitchell photo shows the 2018...

    Real Fast Fotography spotted this  Jeep pickup, which many believe will be dubbed the Scrambler (though Comanche and Gladiator are also in the running , because of the eggs), driving around the Chrysler Tech Center environs. It’s not the first time the intrepid Real Fast Fotography crew has...
