Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton
We have talked before about how there was going to be a new Jeep model to replace both the Patriot and the Compass, into one super Jeep model. We think that there may be a change in the replacement plan. We say this because it seems as though there is going to be a new Jeep Patriot coming for 2018. We want to take a look at this new model today!
Contrary to the styling we can see on the exciting Patriot model, the replacements for the 2018 Jeep Patriot will lose its blocky look for more modern and close to Grand Cherokee design cues. Indeed, the new Compass model looks like smaller Grand Cherokee but also share a lot of similarities with the Renegade, which is a good thing if you want our opinion.
The Patriot replacement has Jeep’s signature seven-slot grille which resides between nicely accentuated headlights. Profile side features trapezoidal fender flares and pronounced beltline. The rear side also looks more sculpted and there are also new taillights.
On the other hand, what is also important to mention, this new model sits on the “small-wide” unibody platform. This light and stuff unibody structure has been made of 65 percent high-strength steel.
Inside, the model also brings more modern design and the newest technology. The quality of materials is better as well as the comfort.
“The fourth generation of the Uconnect infotainment system will also be there. The system supports Android Auto and Apple Car Play features and different screen sizes. Available will be 5-inch, 7-inch and 8.4-inch touchscreens depending on the trim level. The instrument panel will also be available with either 3.5-inch information display or 7-inch digital cluster.”-suv2018.net

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near North County
We have a secret, but we have got to tell someone, so we are going to tell you! The Jeep Grand Cherokee is getting a new trim for the 2018 model year! Coming soon to All Star Jeep Dealer near North County, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk!
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the third Fiat Chrysler vehicle to have the unhinged supercharged V-8 stuffed under its hood, and it’s the quiet Hellcat next door. Not literally, of course—have you heard a blown Hemi V-8 at full whack?—but with standard all-wheel drive mitigating the engine’s tire-spinning proclivities, plus its under-the-radar looks, the Trackhawk can at least pass for an upstanding citizen.
With more traction than any Hellcat yet, the Trackhawk has quite a lot of poke despite its pork—the engine adds 259 pounds over the already heavy 475-hp Grand Cherokee SRT. Nonetheless, Jeep claims it can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. “That time is on par with the nearly 1000-pounds-lighter, automatic-equipped Dodge Hellcats we’ve tested. (The quickest was the Charger, which reached 60 mph in 3.4 seconds.) Per Jeep, the quarter-mile is expected to fly by in 11.6 seconds (at 116 mph!), and, with no electronic governor, the Trackhawk is said to surrender to atmospheric resistance at 180 mph.”-caranddriver.com
The supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 is mostly left alone otherwise, right down to its forged pistons, sodium-filled exhaust valves, heavy-duty bearings, and blower pushing as much as 11.6 psi. Exhaust-routing complications reduce peak torque by a negligible 5 lb-ft, to 645. To keep the Hellcat from lunching the Trackhawk’s driveline, Jeep fortifies the eight-speed automatic transmission, fits forged chain sprockets and a wider chain in the transfer case, beefs up the rear driveshaft and half-shafts, and tweaks the rear differential.

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Illinois
It’s officially spy shot season and we are so pumped! What is spy shot season you ask? It’s that wonderful time of the year in which auto manufacturers start testing out the next year’s models and we get images of the ‘mules’! ‘Mules’ are what the covered bodies of the next year’s models are called. They are usually nondescript to keep those of us who watch for them, in suspense. Let’s talk about the spy shots we recently looked at for the 2018 Jeep Cherokee that you will soon be able to get at All Star Jeep Dealer near Illinois.
The heavily disguised prototype has the nose and tail completely covered, and an undisguised mule with the current body shows what appear to be new radar sensors. Based on these spy shots, it looks like the Cherokee’s current split headlight design could be disappearing.
“We know there must be a significant redesign to the front considering how much camouflage is used. We can also just make out a revised accent light in a similar position as the current accent lights. This wouldn’t indicate unified headlights alone, but two of the exposed mule’s apparent radar sensors sit right where the square-shaped main headlamps are located on the current model. They’ll have to at least move those lights higher in the bumper for the sensors, and if they’re moved that far up, they might as well be merged with the accent lights.”-autoblog.com
For more information on the current Jeep Cherokee and the 2018 model, talk to a member of the All Star staff. They would love to share with you their passion for this wonderful Jeep vehicle. Head to All Star and test drive the Cherokee today!
Jeep Compass at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant
It is a beautiful day in the St. Louis area! This cooler temperatures are delightful and we are loving it – It’s giving us a great opportunity to check out the inventory of Jeep vehicles on the All Star Jeep Dealer lot near Florissant. While we love all the different models in the Jeep lineup, today we want to focus on the great changes that we see coming for the Jeep Compass in 2018.
The new Jeep Compass is a continuation of the original concept — a tough-bodied, compact crossover with one model engineered for off-roading and three for bad weather, all in a Grand Cherokee-style skin. It carries the Chrysler “Tigershark” 2.4 liter engine, with manual and automatic transmissions, with a two-liter turbo four supposedly a year or three off.
“Power ratings are 180 hp at 6,400 rpm and 175 lb-ft of torque at 3,900 rpm, and a peak towing capacity of 2,000 lb (with tow package and AWD only). Electronic stop-start comes with both automatic transmissions, and includes a secondary battery and upgraded components. The engine has coil-on-plug ignition with dual plugs, and an automatic tensioner on the single-belt accessory drive.”-allpar.com
There is just one engine, with three different transmissions. A Fiat six-speed manual is standard on the Sport and Latitude, with FWD or AWD; a six-speed Aisin is optional with FWD. All wheel drive Compasses can be ordered with the optional nine speed automatic (not a six speed automatic); the Trailhawk is nine-speed only.
Take advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend and check out the different Jeep models at All Star. The team at All Star would be happy to take you on a test drive of the current Jeep Compass and share with you all of the amazing features that it has to offer.

Today we want to take a look at the changes that we think we saw on the latest spy shots of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon that you will be able to get at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton for 2018.

Jeep Wrangler at All Star Jeep Dealer near University City
It’s no secret that the Jeep Wrangler at All Star Jeep Dealer near University City is probably one of the best off-road capable SUV models on the market today. It offers agility for off road driving, and comfort and style for day to day in town trips. Today we want to share with you more about the new interior that we can expect to see on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler.
The Wrangler is the heart and soul of the Jeep brand, and its success sets the tone for the entire Jeep lineup. Although no one can criticize the current Wrangler’s off-road chops, many (including us) have commented on the rig’s low-tech interior. Such an interior helps simplify things while you’re out wheeling, but modern amenities nevertheless would be welcome on the daily commute. We can’t comment on the quality of the forthcoming interior, but these spy photos reveal that the Wrangler’s technology is set to increase dramatically.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will adopt the latest iteration of Fiat Chrysler’s easy-to-operate and quick-to-respond system in the form of Uconnect 3.0. Although our spy photographer didn’t get close enough to measure the screen, we presume the top-end unit will measure 8.4 inches as it does in other FCA products (expect lower-end 2018 Wranglers to run the smaller but still intuitive and quick 5.0-inch touchscreen setup).
Although expected to be lighter than its predecessor thanks to increased use of aluminum, the 2018 Wrangler’s chassis won’t stray from the truck’s traditionalist formula. Body-on-frame construction and solid axles at both ends are all but given, as are two- and four-door body styles. (A pickup version is coming as well!) (This information was gathered from caranddriver.com and jeep.com.)
You can expect to see the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler in late 2017 or very early 2018 at All Star!
Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton
There are a number of wonderful SUV models on the market today; you could say that every auto dealer has their own version that they claim is the best. Truth be told, some of the very best SUV models on the market come from the Jeep line up. One model in particular, the Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton, is a top notch SUV with a vast selection of options. Today we want to take a look at some of the top trim levels offered on the Patriot.
The 75th Anniversary package includes 17-inch bronze-painted alloy wheels, bronze exterior accents, remote engine start, a sunroof, mesh upholstery and a cargo cover.
“The Latitude comes with all of the features of the Sport with the Power Value Group, plus air-conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, remote keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated audio controls, a height-adjustable driver seat, heated front seats, reclining rear seat backs and a 115-volt power outlet.”-edmunds.com
A few options packages are available on the Patriot Latitude. The Premium Sound Group adds nine Boston Acoustics speakers, including two that flip down from the tailgate. The Sun and Sound Group includes those features and a sunroof. The Security and Cargo Convenience Group includes a cargo cover, adjustable roof-rack crossbars and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Finally, the High Altitude package consists of unique 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome exterior trim, a sunroof, leather upholstery and a power driver seat (with manual lumbar adjustment).

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton
It is an easy decision to buy a Jeep. They are fantastic vehicles that are incredibly capable and stylish to boot! The decision making starts getting harder when you have to pick a model from the Jeep line up. We recommend the Jeep Grand Cherokee from All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton. It has a lot of great new features this year, including a Trailhawk model with extra off-road kit debuts for 2017, while the top-of-the-line Summit gets slightly revised styling and additional luxury-oriented interior garnishes. Newly available features include a self-parking system and lane departure warning. A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are now standard on every Grand Cherokee.
Now that you know you want to get a Jeep Grand Cherokee, you might wonder which trim will be right for you. There is a trim that we think is pretty neat, and it’s new too! We are talking of course about the Trailhawk! 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
Go to All STar today and check out the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk today. We are sure that you will love this stylish and capable model. You deserve to drive a great SUV – you deserve to drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee!
Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer in Bridgeton
When you are in the market for a new SUV, you need to check out the Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer in Bridgeton. This powerful Jeep Cherokee has a lot to offer as far as comfort and style, a stylish interior, and a powerful engine. Today we want to take a look at the performance on the Jeep Cherokee as well as the miles per gallon they offer as well.
Standard on most 2017 Jeep Cherokees is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Optional on most is a 3.2-liter V6 that makes 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard with both engines.
You have your choice of front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with either engine, but Trailhawk models are 4WD-only. Jeep offers two 4WD systems. Standard on four-wheel-drive Sport, Latitude and Limited models is the light-duty Active Drive I 4WD system; it requires no input from the driver, though it does come with a Selec-Terrain dial that features different terrain modes. Standard on the Trailhawk and Overland and optional on the Limited is the more rugged Active Drive II system, which features low-range gearing and a locking rear differential along with an additional Rock mode for the Selec-Terrain dial.
The optional towing package gives V6 models a healthy 4,500-pound towing capacity.
“When equipped with front-wheel drive and the four-cylinder engine, the Cherokee is EPA-rated at 25 mpg combined (21 city/30 highway). Surprisingly, the V6 and front-wheel drive is nearly as good with 24 mpg combined (21 city/29 highway). EPA-estimated fuel economy for 4WD Cherokees is slightly less than above, with the Trailhawk bringing up the rear at 22 mpg combined with the four-cylinder and 21 mpg combined with the V6.”-edmunds.com
