2018 Hyundai Kona vs other small crossovers: How they compare on paper

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 10:00:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,

(image) The 2018 Hyundai Kona is the hottest new thing in the hottest new segment: subcompact crossovers. Or B-segment SUVs. Or whatever you might want to call this hodge-podge collection of vehicles of vaguely similar specs. Each is pretty much just a raised hatchback in some form (or literally in the case of one entry), skewing the increasingly vague line between car and SUV. If there was ever a segment that deserved the term "crossover" for more reasons than just its car-based unibody architecture, t

Sunday Drive: Rendering the future at Jeep and Ford

Sun, 08 Apr 2018 12:00:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

(image) Last week brought us quite a wide variety of automotive news nuggets, and judging by the response of our own readership, the Jeep Wrangler pickup truck led the way. It's not expected to hit the sales floor until April of 2019, which means we've all got an entire year to wait, but that just means we have lots of time to anticipate its arrival. And we do so today with a series of renderings that show what the so-called Scrambler may look like in a few different colors.

Jeep Wrangler pickup renderings: Latest imaginings of the Scrambler

Wed, 04 Apr 2018 11:19:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) The Jeep Wrangler-based JT pickup, which everybody refers to as Scrambler (boy, we're going to be surprised if that isn't the real name), doesn't hit the showroom floor until April 2019. That is a long time to wait. What's an impatient nation of Jeep fans to do in the intervening year? Speculate on what it looks like, of course.

We test the latest Easter Jeep Safari off roaders in Moab

Sat, 31 Mar 2018 11:30:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,,

(image) The Easter Jeep Safari began as a play for tourism: in 1967 the Moab Chamber of Commerce invited "the Jeeping community" to ride a single trail on the Saturday before Easter. The attendees were mostly members and friends of the Chamber of Commerce. Now, 52 years later, the nine-day Safari takes place on more than 40 trails and lures thousands of Jeepers, who put on one of the biggest and best modified Jeep shows in the world.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. midsize crossovers and SUVs: How they compare on paper

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 14:50:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,

(image) In a world full of SUVs and crossovers all competing for similar buyers in similar segments, there are still some models that find their own little niches that lack such fevered fighting. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of those vehicles. It's an oddball in the sense that it's a midsize crossover SUV with a unibody chassis and independent suspension, but it still uses rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive systems and has some off-road capability. It's also a midsize crossover, but only offers two

Sunday Drive: Classic American nameplates and one exciting new German

Sun, 25 Mar 2018 17:55:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,

(image) Today's look back at last week's biggest automotive stories focuses first on the Jeep Wagoneer, an unequivocal American classic. Not only did it play a pivotal role in kicking off America's current sport utility vehicle craze, it legitimized the Jeep brand in the mind of consumers looking not just for something to ably take them off the beaten path, but to do so in comfort, with the entire family along for the ride. So it comes as little surprise that Jeep decided to take one vintage Wagoneer, m

Jeep Wrangler pickup expected to hit dealer showrooms April 2019

Sat, 24 Mar 2018 18:20:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) Automotive News, after speaking with Fiat-Chrysler dealers after one of the carmaker's meetings last week, found out the coming Jeep Wrangler pickup should hit dealers in April 2019. The dealers said that was the only new bit of information in the hour-long confab. We know production begins in the fourth quarter of this year, but we don't know when we'll get our first look at the bedded Wrangler. With fully-camoed prototypes still roaming the streets eight weeks ago, a public introduction could

(image) It's Easter time, and that means it's time for the 52nd Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, held March 24 through April 1, where thousands of off-roaders crawl, scrape and scramble over the rugged trails of Moab, Utah. And that brings us to this year's colorful collection of Jeep concepts, custom-built by FCA for the occasion.

Jeep Wrangler won't get those cutout half doors after all

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 20:00:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) Let's just make one thing clear right off the bat: If you want to go off-roading and you want an open-air experience, a Jeep Wrangler is probably the right vehicle for you. Really, the Wrangler has always been about enjoying the outdoors with as little between its occupants and the great outdoors as legally possible. That's why the top comes off, the doors stay home, and the windshield folds flat. All that said, however, one cool bit of show-car desirability reportedly won't make into production

2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk Drivers' Notes Review | Trying to find its way

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 12:45:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) The Jeep Compass Trailhawk is the smaller sibling to the Cherokee off-roader. They look a lot alike, and generally that seems to be a good thing. We spent some time with it, both in Michigan and the Pacific Northwest. It seemed like the perfect little ute to tackle rain and late snow, as well as the cratered roads surrounding Detroit every spring. Here's what we thought after spending some quality time together.

Is a Jeep Renegade Hybrid coming soon?

(image) We've known that Jeep is working on an updated Renegade. We've seen prototypes with updated front and rear fascias and with updated interiors. But it seems that the next Renegade will have more than just cosmetic updates. One of our spy photographers caught Jeep testing a Renegade Trailhawk that looks like a normal current one, but it has an electric shock warning sign in the window.
