Is the Jeep Renegade Right for You?

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Arnold

We all know that there are a lot of great Jeep models within the line up. So many great models that you might need a little help deciding which model will be right for you. We want to help you make your decision a little bit easier by sharing some basic information on the Jeep Renegade that you can find at All Star Jeep Dealer near Arnold.

The Renegade isn’t just a cute ute with a Jeep badge; it can also “Go anywhere and do anything” like its larger siblings. No other SUV in the class can match the Renegade’s off-road capabilities. In fact, few vehicles in any class can, and most of them wear a Jeep badge. This little Jeep isn’t just an off-road warrior though. It shows its manners on paved roads, with confident handling, a composed ride, and an adequate engine. It also gives you plenty of day-to-day utility, with excellent passenger room and a decent-sized cargo hold. On the downside, fuel economy is low for the class, and there are very few standard features.

The 2017 Jeep Renegade starts at $17,995, which is the lowest base price in the class. It is also the cheapest Jeep model. Most Renegade models come with front-wheel drive, but you can upgrade to four-wheel drive for $2,000. A 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and a six-speed manual transmission are standard, but you can opt for a more powerful four-cylinder engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission for between $1,330 and $1,530, depending on the trim. For more exact and specific pricing information, talk to a member of the All Star team!

New Wrangler Unlimited Coming Soon

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton will be getting a new trim soon that will change the way that you look at the Wrangler Unlimited. We want to share with you some of the features that the new Wrangler Unlimited will have.

At this point, official information about the next-generation Wrangler Unlimited— known as the JL, internally — is few and far between. We have a decent idea of what to expect based on leaks, spy shots, and revelations made by insiders, but Jeep is keeping its lips sealed until its long-awaited off-roader breaks cover this fall at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The JL-series model will continue to feature a tall grille with seven vertical slots, round headlights, flared fenders, and a rear-mounted spare tire. Its overall silhouette won’t change much, either. Perhaps the most notable modification up front is that the turn signals will move from the grille to the fenders. In profile, expect the JL to adopt a more rakish windshield, a small concession made in the name of aerodynamics. The back end will receive only minor tweaks, such as new-look lights inspired by the ones found on the Renegade. “The hood and the doors will be made out of aluminum to minimize overall weight, according to a supplier memo leaked to the press last fall. Surprisingly, the Wrangler’s removable top might be replaced by a series of individual panels that can be stored on-board, allowing owners to go topless on a whim,” (digitaltrends.com).

2018 Jeep Wrangler Spotted!

Jeep Wrangler at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country

We love when there are leaks of what the latest Jeep models will look like when they are released. It’s like getting to watch a long trailer for the hottest movie that will be coming out. We recently got a look at what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will look like once it is available at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler isn’t scheduled to be officially revealed for a few more months, but leaked images may have uncovered its new design. The overall look hasn’t changed much, but there’s a longer hood, a more prominent front bumper, vents behind the front fenders, and a character line running under what appear to be taller windows.

“A kinked grille has outer slats that curve around the headlights, while the turn signals move to the fenders. The Wrangler’s signature hood latches and exposed door hinges remain, as does its fold-down windshield, despite rumors that the feature wouldn’t make the cut.”-foxnews.com

If authentic, the images also confirm that the next-generation Wrangler will have a fully removable roof and doors, with framework replacing the sport bar used on the current model. Overall, the look is in line with a lot of rumors that have been floating around about the 2018 Wrangler. We loved the look of the leaked Jeep Wrangler and can only hope that the model released to dealerships will look very similar to the mules we saw on the road. (A mule is a prototype of a car.)

Feel the Power of the Grand Cherokee!

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton

It is common knowledge that Jeep makes amazing SUVs. They are capable and responsive, while being comfortable to sit in and drive. It turns out that Jeep has now been named the most powerful SUV on the market, thanks to the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. What makes the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton so powerful? – Let’s take a look.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk borrows the 707 horsepower supercharged V8 from the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcats. This is the first time that the 6.2-liter supercharged motor has been paired with an all-wheel-drive system, which has been strengthened to handle its 645 lb-ft of brute force torque.

Though the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is not designed for off-roading (unless you count race tracks as off-road,) the Trackhawk comes equipped with a computer-controlled Bilstein adaptive suspension system and five performance modes (Normal, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow) that tweak the ride stiffness, steering, 8-speed automatic transmission, AWD, limited-slip rear differential, etc., to suit the occasion. This different performance modes allow the driver to have maximum control over the engine and the driving experience.

“The Trackhawk’s tow rating is 7,200 pounds, but you’re probably more interested in the other way it hauls. Jeep says it will do 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and cover a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds on the way to a 180 mph top speed. Thanks to the Trackhawk’s vented hood and front fascia help cool the engine and reduce aerodynamic lift at speed, and a set of 15.75-inch Brembo front brakes – the largest ever fitted to a Jeep — slow the 5,363-pound beast down when you’re done with the fun.”-foxnews.com

At All Star they believe in having honest conversations about the cost of the vehicles that they sell – it’s all part of their customer first philosophy. Today we want to take a look at some of the base costs of a Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near IL.

The base Jeep Cherokee starts at $23,595 and comes in six different trims, ranging from the base Sport model to the top-of-the-line Overland. That starting price is about average for the class, but know that you’re going to pay much more than the base price if you want to go off road in the Cherokee.

In short, if you’re just planning on using the Cherokee as a family runabout, prices are in line with the rest of the class. However, if you’re planning on going overlanding in it, expect to pay more for the privilege.

What is the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited ?

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue

What is the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited? This is a question that the people at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue frequently are asked. This is because there is sometimes some confusion about the differences between the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Today we want to describe the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited so that it is a little bit easier to spot the differences.

A big reason that this confusion happens is because the Unlimited is technically a trim of the Jeep Wrangler.

Wrangler uses a smooth and fancy Chrysler Pentastar 3.6-liter V6, and a 5-speed automatic transmission designed by Mercedes-Benz with an available 6-speed manual.The engine makes 285 horsepower with 260 pound-feet of torque, scooting a two-door to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds, with the heavier four-door Wrangler Unlimited trailing behind, in 8.4 seconds. Wrangler features a rugged chassis with high ground clearance and skid plates, and solid axles front and rear.It is an amazing machine when it comes to scrambling over boulders. (New tricks by the Rubicon model, in pursuit of bigger boulders, include electronic disconnection of the sway bar to allow extreme wheel articulation and stability in extreme situations, but the Rubicon is another trim different from the Unlimited.)

“The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a four-door that comes with a hard top, soft top, or both. The Freedom hardtop is like a T-top, with easily removable roof panels. The soft top is easier to get down than it used to be, but the T-top is the easiest to manage.”-autoblog.com

For more information on the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and its distinct differences from the Jeep Wrangler, head to All Star. The All Star team would love to show you the differences and take you on a test drive of this highly capable vehicle!

Back to the Classic Look

Jeep Wrangler at All Star Jeep Dealer near University City

Some automobiles are redesigned and redesigned to the point that you cannot even recognize it anymore. While we don’t have a problem with redesigns, sometimes they are necessary and really improve the vehicle, we like when the redesigns make us feel a little nostalgic and hearken back to the earlier days of the specific vehicle. It is nice to know that the people at Jeep seem to agree with us, as we have gotten a look at what the new Jeep Wrangler at All Star Jeep Dealer near University City will look like in regards to the grill. Let’s take a deeper look at the new grill on the Jeep Wrangler.

The design is a mix of old and new styling elements, with CJ-style round headlights that encroach on the iconic seven-slot grille, a kink in the middle similar to the original 1987 Wrangler’s, a strong trapezoidal shape with curved edges, and no openings for turn signal lights, which have presumably been moved to the fenders.

It’s been confirmed that the new Wrangler will remain body-on-frame and will be available as both an SUV and a pickup this time around, however spy photos of prototypes being tested on public roads suggest it will trade its roll cage for more traditional roof rails fitted with removable panels.

“A trio of motors including turbocharged four-cylinder and V6 gasoline engines, plus the Wrangler’s first diesel is expected to be offered with a choice of automatic and manual transmissions. The Wrangler is currently scheduled to hit the trails by the end of this year.”-foxnews.com
