How not to Jump Your Jeep
This might be one of the wildest accidents with a Jeep or any other vehicle caught on camera. Captured by someone driving behind a Grand Cherokee, the 16-second video clip shows the Jeep traveling on an expressway in Kansas, and for some unexplainable reason, steering off the road right into the back of an unoccupied vehicle, and then flying into the air.
The 2014 diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee seems to have made quite an impression on Consumer Reports.
If you’ve been antsy waiting for word of when those fixes for fuel tanks might be ready for those recalled 1993-98 Jeep Grand Cherokees and 2002-07 Jeep Libertys, good news: the Chrysler Group has begun manufacturing the trailer hitch assemblies designed to protect the fuel tanks, and plans to get them to dealerships by late summer.
Let’s not kid ourselves, while people might have grown to develop a deeper appreciation for the Jeep brand with the introduction of new vehicles, the Wrangler is still very much the king of the nameplate.
Jeep and Mopar have teamed up to introduce six concept models that will likely have Jeep enthusiasts considering even more custom options to tackle those trails. Then again, that’s really second nature when it comes to owning a Jeep, right? Still, the Jeeps, which made their official debut at the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, should up the ante even more. From a Wrangler bearing the code name “Level Red”, to an up-fitted Cherokee painted in Satin Silver, the Jeeps feature a range of custom features aimed at enhancing the thrill of off-roading.
