La Jeep Renegade eletta miglior 4x4 dell'anno 2016

La Jeep Renegade è stata eletta "4x4 dell'anno 2016" dalla rivista inglese "4x4 Magazine", una delle pubblicazioni specializzate più famose nel mondo. L'ambito titolo conferma le doti vincenti del SUV compatto ormai divenuto, in molti Paesi dell'area EMEA, uno dei più venduti del proprio segmento. La giuria del "4x4 Magazine" ha votato all'unanimità la Jeep Renegade  dopo aver messo a dura prova una versione Trailhawk su un tracciato fuoristrada estremo, il terreno ideale per l'allestimento che assicura il massimo in termini di prestazioni e caratterizzazione off road.

 Si tratta della versione al top della gamma che coniuga in un unico prodotto il meglio della tecnologia off-road firmata Jeep e la massima innovazione motoristica di FCA. La Renegade Trailhawk è infatti equipaggiata con il potente 2.0 Multijet da 170 CV in abbinamento al cambio automatico a nove marce e alla trazione integrale "Jeep Active Drive Low" con rapporto finale di riduzione di 20:1. Ma la giuria di 4x4 Magazine ha ritenuto meritevole del premio l'intera gamma Renegade, un modello che gli esperti della rivista hanno giudicato "uno dei migliori veicoli  4x4 prodotti negli ultimi cinque anni".

Inoltre, la giuria di "4x4 Magazine" ha premiato la Jeep Renegade quale miglior "SUV medio sotto le 30.000 sterline", oltre a conferire all'iconica Jeep Wrangler, per il quarto anno consecutivo, il primo posto nella categoria "Hardcore".

 Finora prodotta in oltre 180.000* esemplari nel rinnovato FCA Melfi Plant (Italia), la Jeep Renegade ha rappresentato il debutto del marchio nella categoria degli Small SUV - il segmento con il più rapido tasso di crescita della regione EMEA - dimostrando così che Jeep non è più un marchio di nicchia ma è in grado di competere con successo nei  diversi segmenti. I riconoscimenti ottenuti dalla Renegade confermano inoltre che Jeep può soddisfare le esigenze quotidiane dei suoi clienti, pur rimanendo fedele al proprio DNA di autentico brand off-road. Primo produttore di SUV a livello globale, Jeep offre le migliori capacità 4x4 in tutti i segmenti in cui è presente.

Jeep Recalling 55,000 Cherokee Over Fire Hazard

Jeep has announced that it is recalling certain models of the 2015-2016 Cherokee globally due to a potential fire hazard.

The recall affects 55,687 units built produced between February 18, 2015 and September 10, 2015 that were installed with the optional power liftgate. 

On those vehicles, there is a risk of a leak that would allow water to reach the control module for the liftgate. If this were to happen, then it would short circuit the system and potentially lead to a fire.

Of the 55,687 Cherokee models being recalled, 32,784 were sold in the United States, 10,138 in Canada, 924 in Mexico and the remaining 11,841 outside the NAFTA region.

To resolve the issue, Jeep dealerships will replace any parts damaged by water and if necessary, fit a better moisture shield into the liftgate.

FCA recalling nearly 56K Jeep to fix leak

Detroit — Fiat Chrysler is recalling nearly 56,000 Jeep Cherokee SUVs worldwide to fix a water leak that can cause an electrical short in the power tailgates.

The recall covers Cherokees from the 2015 and 2016 model years. Water can get into the tailgate control module, increasing the risk of a fire. The company says no fires or injuries have been reported.

Fiat Chrysler says two customer complaints led to the recall.

The Jeeps were manufactured from Feb. 18 to Sept. 10. Dealers will inspect the module and replace damaged parts. They’ll also replace a water shield with a better one. The company is developing a schedule for the recall and will notify owners.

In the meantime, owners are advised to check tailgates and make sure they are kept dry until repairs are made.

Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Concept is the Ultimate Desert Ride

Jeep teamed up with Mopar to create a limited edition of the Wrangler, called the Red Rock Concept.

Based on the Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock Edition, the new Red Rock Concept is paying a tribute to the upcoming 50th Moab Easter Jeep Safari. In celebration to the event, the automaker will produce 50 units of the special edition model.

Some of the goodies added by Jeep and Mopar include the Tru-Lok electronic differentials, low-range ratio, transfer case, Dana 44 solid front and rear axles and a Warn Rubicon Winch. Visually speaking, the off-roader is bringing the new front and rear off-road bumpers (low gloss Granite Crystal), Red Rock badges and hood decals, LED lighting units at the front and 17-inc beadlock wheels, with a low gloss black finish, wrapped in 35-inch BFG K02 all-terrain tires. 

Inside, the two companies added Amaretto Brown Katzkin leather seats with the ‘Red Rock’ embroidered seat back logo, silver accented stitching, a serialized ‘Red Rock’ grab handle plaque and several other goodies.

The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock special edition model will be produced next year and additional details on it, including pricing, will be announced around its final reveal date. The vehicle was presented in Las Vegas, at the 2015 SEMA Show.

2016 Grand Cherokee SRT  Night Edition is Jeep's Idea of Stealthy

Dictionaries might define ‘stealthy’ as “quiet and secret in order to avoid being noticed”, but automakers and car fans alike have a very different definition of what that means.

In the world of automobiles, the term ‘stealthy’ is almost always applied to vehicles fully painted or accented in shades that bring to mind Stealth aircrafts, and which usually has the opposite effect when it comes to being noticed… 

Jeep says its new Grand Cherokee SRT Night that will be unwrapped at the LA Auto Show next week “features a stealth-like appearance” and by that, it means a gloss-black finish for the roof, rear spoiler, front grille bezels, B and C pillars, and side window surrounds, and satin black for the badges, upper and lower front grilles, and the 20-inch alloys. 

Exterior color options for the rest of the body include Velvet Red, Billet Silver and Granite Crystal. As for the inside, Jeep added ‘Black Laguna’ leather seats with silver accent stitching and light black chrome bezels.

No changes were made under the hood where the SRT sports 6.4-liter V8 HEMI engine capable of 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, for a 0-60mph (96km/h) time of 4.8 seconds, a 0-100-0 mph in 16.3 seconds, a quarter mile run in the 13-second range and a top speed of 160mph (257km/h).

2016 Jeep Wrangler Backcountry Plum Crazy exposed at Los Angeles Auto Show

If there’s one color intricately linked to the Chrysler group, that’s Plum Crazy, and now, a similar shade named “Xtreme Purple” is being offered on Jeep’s new Wrangler Backcountry.

The Backcountry will be the only model in the Wrangler’s lineup available in Xtreme Purple, though, if you find it a tad eccentric, Jeep will give you the option of four regular shades, including Hydro Blue, Black, Bright White and Granite Crystal. 

Based on the Wrangler Sahara model, the Backcountry supposedly sports a “winter capability theme”, which on the outside, translates into front fender and rear quarter panel decals, unique off-road front and rear powder coated bumpers, 17-inch wheels in mid-gloss black, and Rubicon rock rails or alternatively, Sahara side steps as a no-cost option. The  Backcountry comes with a standard black hard-top, but an optional body color hard top will be available.

As for the interior, the Wrangler Backcountry gets Piano Black vent rings, door handles and grab handles, a vinyl-wrapped console lid and door armrests with Diesel Gray accent stitching, black McKinley leather seat bolsters with black sport mesh inserts, a nine-speaker Alpine sound system and all-weather slush mats.

The new Wrangler model has been exposed for the first time at Los Angeles Auto Show, the price has TBA.
