All about the Jeep Patriot

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Arnold

The Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Arnold is an SUV that doesn’t like to toot its own horn, it likes to lay back and enjoy the ride. While the Patriot isn’t the most rough and tumble of the Jeep line up, like the Wrangler is, this model is still up for more than most SUV models. Let’s take a look at what the Jeep Patriot has to offer.

The Jeep Patriot is a compact crossover available in two main trim levels: Sport and Latitude. Both trims offer various subtrims. The Sport trim is sold in Sport SE and 75th Anniversary Edition subtrims, while Latitude buyers can choose the High Altitude subtrim. The base Sport provides 16-inch steel wheels, cruise control, a four-speaker sound system, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port. The Latitude adds heated mirrors, air-conditioning, power accessories, alloy wheels, a height-adjustable driver seat and heated front seats. Options include distinctive flip-down tailgate speakers, a rearview camera, a navigation system, a 6.5-inch touchscreen and roof rails.

The standard engine for front-wheel-drive models is a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 172 hp is optional on front-wheel-drive Patriots and is required on all Patriots that have four-wheel drive. All models come standard with a five-speed manual transmission, and models with the 2.0-liter engine are eligible for an optional continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Patriots with the 2.4-liter engine may be equipped with an optional six-speed automatic, and the sole exception here are models equipped with the Freedom Drive II off-road package.

It’s a Jeep Thing

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue

We have all heard the saying, “It’s a Jeep thing, you would’t understand.” We think that that phrase is a bit outdated, especially when you look at the Jeep Grand Cherokee that you can get at All Star Jeep Dealer Ladue. This Jeep model possess all of the power of an off-road Jeep, like the Wrangler, that we may not understand, but it also has loads of luxury and class both in the interior and exterior, and we think that everyone can understand that! Let’s take a brief at the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a big step away from the “It’s a Jeep thing, you wouldn’t understand” crowd –- it’s comfortable, it’s quiet and it’s stylish. You’ve probably seen your fair share of these if you live in a suburb or while picking your kids up from soccer practice, and there’s a reason: It does everything, and the Summit trim level does it with acres of leather and wood inside. The spacious rear passenger area is more than capable of hauling adults as comfortably as children, and the cargo area should be able to store all the generic athletic equipment or luggage thrown your way.

“The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 churns out a healthy 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. That power is then sent through an eight-speed automatic transmission that doesn’t shudder, jerk or do anything unexpected. Stepping up to a V8-powered Grand Cherokee will net you a better exhaust note and bragging rights, but power delivery is more than fine with the V6 under the hood. Automatic stop/start is standard, but it’s defeatable by pushing a button on the center stack.”-autoweek.com

Let’s Talk 2018 Cherokee

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

When you want an SUV that does double duty – great for week day driving and great for fun weekend off-roading – you go to the Jeep line up of vehicles. Each different Jeep has something different to offer, so it is easy to find the Jeep that best suits what you want and need. Today we want to take a look at what we see coming for the Jeep Cherokee in 2018.

We recently got a chance to take a look at the most recent spy shots and this is what we are thinking. We expect the current model’s separated daytime running lights and main projectors to be combined into a single unit, like on the rest of the Jeep lineup. The prototype, though heavily camouflaged, appears to signal that the new lights will flank the grille in a more conventional fashion.

It’s not clear if there will be any major mechanical mods, though it’s possible we’ll see the 9-speed automatic already offered on the smaller Renegade and Compass models make it over.

“We’ve also heard that the Cherokee might receive a high-performance Trackhawk option as part of the facelift. The rumored engine is a tuned version of the 3.2-liter V-6 already available on the Cherokee. In standard form the engine delivers 271 horsepower. Below it is a 2.4-liter inline-4 good for 184 hp. Finally, expect a more accomplished suite of electronic driver aids. Early test mules were spotted wearing numerous sensors front and rear.”-motorauthority.com

We expect to see this model at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant later this year. To learn more about the Cherokee and the Jeep line up of SUV models, head to All Star and talk with a member of their team. The friendly and knowledgeable staff would love to help you!

New Jeep Compass Revealed!

Jeep Compass at All Star Jeep Dealer near Glendale

We have waiting for months to find out more information on the Jeep Compass that will soon be coming out and be available at All Star Jeep Dealer near Glendale. Today we want to share with you some of the details regarding the specifications of the new Jeep Compass. We do not know much right now, but we are going to tell you what we know!

FCA, Jeep’s parent company, will launch its new Compass range from December, buyers will be able to choose from four trim levels and either two- or four-wheel drive.

An entry-level Sport model kicks off lineup, and is powered by a 129kW 2.4-litre petrol engine and offered with the choice of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. It will also come standard in front-wheel drive specification.

Standard gear includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a reversing camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel and Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment system that is accessed via a 5.0-inch touchscreen.

Next up the ladder is the Longitude, which is powered by the same 2.4-litre petrol engine as the Sport and is also front-wheel drive only, but comes standard with the automatic gearbox.

Increased standard equipment over the Sport includes roof rails, auto headlights, fog and cornering lights, LED ambient interior lighting, passenger seat storage cushion and privacy glass.

The next model is the Limited, which offers the choice between the 2.4-litre petrol and a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine. Both engines are paired exclusively with a nine-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.

Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloys, bi-Xenon headlights, LED taillights, leather trim, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a nine-speaker BeastsAudio sound system and the UConnect system that incorporates navigation, an 8.4-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Mass Appeal of the Renegade!

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue

The Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue really has a huge mass appeal. This compact SUV has a lot of bells and whistles as well as incredible capabilities. We want to explore more about this incredible model here today.

It’s safe to say that the Renegade is making a big impact. Along with the flagship Grand Cherokee, the Renegade is one of the highest-rated vehicles Jeep currently makes. Now in its third model year, the Renegade also scores better than many of its competitors in the burgeoning class of subcompact SUVs.

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.

“The Jeep Renegade should appeal to many shoppers for a variety of reasons. First, it has the lowest base price in the class by a sizeable amount, getting you an off-road-ready partner cheaper. However, be prepared to spend more money to bring the Renegade in line with the competition. The Wrangler may be the model that put Jeep on the map, but if you want a lot of what makes a Jeep a Jeep but in a more comfortable package that also works as a daily driver, then the Renegade could be for you.”-cars.usnews.com

When Will We See the New Wrangler Unlimited?

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country

News has been buzzing all year that 2018 is going to mean a new generation of the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The main question that everyone has been asking is when? When will be get to see the new next generation? We think we may now know! We’ve done some looking around online and found some interesting news.

“Jeep fans know the countdown clock for the new Wrangler—code-named JL—is ticking. According to an unnamed dealer source cited by JLWrangler Forums, the 2018 Wrangler will roll off the Toledo assembly line in mid-November, although some variants won’t start production until months later.”-caranddriver.com

The forum reports the four-door Unlimited V-6 hardtop will be the first out, followed by the Dual Top and softtop versions in December. Next up, in February, are the two-door V-6 hardtop and various versions of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder Unlimited. Softtop versions of the four-cylinder, in both body styles, start in March, at which point Jeep will stop building the current JK. A power top (possibly as both hard- and softtop) will be built starting in May 2018, with the diesel coming in August. A hybrid based on the V-6 will arrive later as a 2019 model.

None of these claimed production start times are confirmed by Fiat Chrysler, nor are they on-sale dates. They’re also subject to change. Fans who can’t wait to see the new Wrangler’s sleeker interior and largely same-looking body in person should book a flight to L.A., as the JL will be unveiled at the Los Angeles auto show this fall.

So while this information is not yet confirmed by the higher ups at FCA, we are hopeful to see the newest Jeep Wrangler Unlimited sooner rather than later at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country!

Jeep Wrangler Spy Shots

Jeep Wrangler at All Star Jeep Dealer in MO

We LOVE getting to look at spy shots of the latest vehicles that come out. This includes the Jeep Wrangler that will soon be out at All Star Jeep Dealer in MO. These spy shots were very revealing and we wanted to share what we thought we saw here with you today.

Previously standard on Sahara and Rubicon models, improved LED headlights are something the die-hards have wished for a long time now. The newfangled clusters appear to offer greater lighting performance than the current units, but they’re not alone. They’re complemented by round-shaped fog lights located under the headlights, grafted into the Wrangler’s bumper.

The newest spy photos of the JL Wrangler further reveal two hood vents and a set of chunky BF Goodrich tires wrapped around black-painted wheels fastened with six lug nuts. The body-on-frame configuration also appears to offer better approach and departure angles than the JK Wrangler, whereas the rear incorporates a tailgate-mounted spare wheel.

There were two mules (test models) out, one of them is fitted with the removable soft top, and the other features some sort of hardtop. According to leaked documents, the first type of 2018 Jeep Wrangler to roll off the line is the two-door JL in hardtop configuration. In March 2018, the Toledo plant will start production of the soft-top Wrangler, whereas right-hand drive models are go for June 11.

“Next August will see the introduction of the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, which will prove popular in markets such as Europe based on the sales figures for the JK and JKU. Over in the United States, the biggest sellers in terms of engine options will be the tried-and-tested Pentastar V6 and the Hurricane inline-4.”-autoevolution.com

A Patriot Replacement Still Coming?

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton

We have heard rumors flying around that there would be a Jeep Patriot replacement would be coming soon, but none has yet to be seen. We did get visual of a possible replacement via some spy shots, but no other pro-types have yet been released. We want to share with you what we think we saw on those spy shots. You can still get the Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton.

Jeep is currently conducting public road trials of prototypes for its new compact crossover SUV that will replace both the Compass and Patriot.

The new SUV will be positioned between the subcompact Renegade and small Cherokee and make its debut late this year at a special ceremony at Jeep’s plant in Pernambuco, Brazil.

A name is yet to be confirmed though we’ve heard that Jeep is likely to go with either Compass or Patriot, with the former more likely to get the tick because of its greater recognition in markets outside the United States.

Underpinning the vehicle is a stretched version of the platform found in the Renegade, known within FCA as Small-Wide. In fact, earlier test mules used modified Renegade bodies. Also borrowed from the Renegade will likely be an independent suspension setup, with MacPherson struts up front and a Chapman strut design out back.

Inline-4 engines will feature across the range, with the primary unit expected to be a new 2.0-liter turbocharged unit. Expect 6-speed manual and 9-speed automatic options in the transmission department. Front-wheel drive will be standard with all-wheel drive remaining an option. (This information was compiled from motorauthority.com, jeep.com, and our own look at the spy shots.)

Luxury in the Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near North County

If you want luxury and practicality with off-roading capability, then you need to get the Jeep Grand Cherokee from All Star Jeep Dealer near North County. This SUV packs a lot of punch in a new and more luxurious package! Let’s learn more about this Jeep Grand Cherokee.

It’s hard to find a truly off-road-ready SUV these days, especially at a reasonable price. But if you’re shopping for one, Jeep has you covered with the 2017 Grand Cherokee.

Off-road prowess isn’t the Grand Cherokee’s only trick, though. Three compelling engines help set the Jeep Grand Cherokee apart. The base 3.6-liter gasoline V6 delivers decent power and fuel economy; the optional turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 increases fuel economy considerably and also pumps up the low-end torque. As for the available 5.7-liter V8, it sounds great and rivals the diesel with its robust towing capacity.

In addition to its well-sorted powertrains, the Grand Cherokee offers just about every upscale amenity and high-tech option you can think of. A premium interior and serious versatility make the Grand Cherokee a standout in the class. For Trail Rated luxury in a stylish package, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is certainly tough to top.

“The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a lot of standard and optional features to choose from, but in general, we’re most fond of the off-road-ready Trailhawk. It can go nearly anywhere and yet still comes with swanky equipment such as ventilated seats and the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen. The Trailhawk’s standard V6 is capable, but an upgrade to the diesel-powered V6 or the 5.7-liter V8 will significantly increase tow ratings. Beyond the extra pulling power, the diesel V6 offers impressive fuel economy, and the V8 gives this Jeep the character of a classic muscle car.”-edmunds.com

Redesign in 2018 or 2019?

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

Driving the Jeep Cherokee from All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant is a great pleasure, however, fans of the Cherokee have been wondering when the next full redesign will be done. Initial reports suggested that 2018 will be the year that we see a new Jeep Cherokee, but we are not entirely sure. We want to share the latest gossip on what we can expect to see and when we can expect to see a redesign.

According to reliable Allpar source oh2o, buyers waiting for a fully refreshed Jeep Cherokee may need to hold off until the 2019 model year. The 2018s are starting production a little early, and ordering for the 2019s is expected to start in January 2018.

oh2o reported that the 2019 Cherokee will have the fourth-generation UConnect system and the Hurricane four-cylinder engine. The current 2.4 and 3.2 liter engines will still be sold, as well.

“DarkSky’s rendering shows how the company might make the Cherokee look a little less unusual, while still keeping it different from other Jeeps. The grille is based on that of the Renegade; the main difference, though, is the less unique forward lighting. In back, we expect the large expanse of curved steel to be changed, as well.”-allpar.com

Not making the new Cherokee right off the bag makes sense, in terms of reducing risk. Instead of dealing with a new car and new plant, the company can just change the plant, making the existing car; that would also reduce the demand for new Cherokees until the plant is moving at full speed.
