Jeep Is Thrilled With 15,000 Japanese Customers

American automotive brands have never really caught on with the typical Japanese consumer. While we’ve done numerous dives trying to understand why the gist is that our tastes don’t typically overlap and they generally prefer to buy domestic. Foreign marques are comparatively rare, frequently German, and are generally owned by those looking to flex their status […] The post Jeep Is Thrilled With 15,000 Japanese Customers appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Jeep Orange Peelz Concept Looks Sweet

Orange Peelz, one of a half-dozen Jeep concepts unveiled at Easter Jeep Safari, is quite possibly the easiest to replicate and drive on a daily basis. A two-door Wrangler, it uses Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) prototype half doors and a custom removable sunroof to let the sunshine in.

2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392: Yes, It Has a Hemi

Truck wars. Pony-car/muscle-car wars. Sports-car wars. Now, we have off-road wars. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is a not-so-subtle way for Jeep to lob a grenade, metaphorically speaking, at Ford. It was a concept, but there was almost no chance it wouldn’t be built, and so here it is for real, as a Jeep […] The post 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392: Yes, It Has a Hemi appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Jeep Shows Off Special Editions, Takes Place in Octogenarian Club

Eighty years of anything is a lot, with life and marriage – and the occasional fruitcake – being heartily celebrated if they ever make it that far.

2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe: Over Hill and Dale, Silently

Eager to steal some thunder from Ford’s returning Bronco, Jeep pulled the wraps off its upcoming Wrangler 4xe Thursday, revealing an off-roader that might be able to handle your commute without consuming a drop of gas. Oh, and you could probably cruise quietly through some sort of wilderness terrain, too.

Jekyll & Hyde Jeeps Aim to Steal a Certain Ford’s Limelight

What’s an automaker to do when a well-off rival decides to throw its hat in the ring? Fight back with whatever’s at hand, then brainstorm new weaponry.

Timing Is Everything: Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392… Concept

There’s nothing coincidental about the timing of this vehicle’s release. Alas, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept is exactly that, a concept, though Fiat Chrysler’s off-road brand strongly hints that it will become a reality one day. That confirmation, if it is forthcoming, will take place long after the debut of a vehicle this concept […] The post Timing Is Everything: Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392… Concept appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Protected the Driver in Dreaded IIHS Small Overlap Test… but Repeated Rollovers Didn’t Help Its Case

One of the joys of watching a previous-generation JK Jeep Wrangler barrel into an obstacle at 40 mph in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s driver-side small overlap crash test was seeing the vehicle shed its front wheel and scoot away as if nothing had happened.

Wheelgun Wednesday: Ruger Wrangler Review

Ruger Wrangler: Rough and Ready or just Rough?

2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel First Drive – Smoothing the Rough Edges

There’s not a lot of major change that would be acceptable to Jeep Wrangler buyers. They have a set image of what the vehicle should look like and what it should be.

Jeep Thrills: Apple Banishes a Little Blue Emoji

Betcha thought we were done talking about emojis around here, eh? Not so fast, Happy Meal.

Ruger Wrangler Single-Action Revolver – Review

A six-shot group using Federal Automatch ammunition at ten yards off-hand. U.S.A. – When I first heard of the Ruger Wrangler, I had plenty to be excited about. It is Ruger's first new single-action 22 line to be introduced in sixty years. I am no fan of the Western shows that recreated the single-action revolver market back in the 50s, but Ruger six-shooters and me have been linked since the beginning.

The Games We Play: Advertising Chicanery Begins on ‘2018 Jeep Wrangler’

Late last year, I selected Jeep’s JL Wrangler as an Ace of Base once pricing for the snazzy new off-road rig was freshly announced.
