We have all heard the rumors, the speculation, and some of the SCARY things that Jeep may or may not have in store for us with the new model Wranglers due out soon, here is some more fuel for the fire!

Jeep is planning world domination of the SUV market over the next five years with the 2014 Renegade, an all-new replacement for the Compass and Patriot in 2016, redesigns of the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee in 2017, and a Suburban-sized SUV reviving the Grand Wagoneer badge in 2018.

The small SUV that replaces the Patriot and Compass will be launched to coincide with Jeep’s 75th anniversary, but I wouldn’t count on any commemorative insane off-roader. Jeep has made it clear that the Wrangler, which CEO Mike Manley described as a “bookend” in his presentation about Jeep’s future, will be Jeep’s singular “extreme off-road” application.

Off-road ability and customization aren’t going away… so they say.

Last year Jeep CEO Mike Manley told Car & Driver his company wants to keep the next Wrangler “easy to customize” and maintain the “halo-qualities” its off-road abilities bless the brand with, and his message hasn’t changed since.

Rumors of GMC doing a Wrangler rival have been floating around for months. GM’s apparently just polled dealers about whether such a vehicle would sell, but nobody at the company will admit to new product plans. Others have tried and failed to beat Jeep at making Jeeps (Toyota, Suzuki) so what would GMC need to […]

Found a great article over at ExtremeTerrain.com Just as 2014 Jeep sales are set to get underway, new details regarding the next generation of Wrangler rumored to debut in 2016 are coming out. CEO Mike Manley hinted strongly that Chrysler’s new EcoDiesel V-6 very well may find its way into the new Wranglers as an […]

So everyone is interested to see what Fiat does to the Jeep we all have come to know and love.  The success of the JK has been huge, the unlimted has added a new dimension to the product line getting people who have never previously owned a Jeep into one (like myself).  Lets see what […]

Great article – some good base information when talking about the Dana 30 that most of the JK owners have up front. The Jeep Dana 30 axle, found in the front of all base-model jks, is no trail champion. The term “bare minimum” comes to mind whenever somebody inquires about the unit’s ability to handle […]
