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

What Does a Jeep Cherokee Go For These Days?

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near IL

One of the most popular questions the team at All Star gets is, “What does this model go for these days?” For more reason, people beat around the bush to find out how much a vehicle in which they are interested costs. If you are at the dealership looking to buy a car, truck, or SUV, the price is going to come up, no need to ask in a round about way, ask directly! 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. Four-wheel drive is an extra $2,000 in most trims, and for a locking rear differential, you’re going to need to get the Trailhawk model, which starts at $31,195. 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.

“Standard features in the Jeep Cherokee include a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speaker audio system, a 5-inch touch-screen infotainment system, Bluetooth, and a USB port. A 3.2-liter V6 engine is optional in all other trims for around $1,700.”-car.usnews.com

Trailhawk Jeep Grand Cherokee is Off-Road Ready

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton

It is no secret that Jeep Vehicles are some of the most off-road capable SUVs on the market today. It could be argued, quite successfully, that Jeep invented the SUV. (If you look at history, they did in order to help tackle the terrain of Europe during WWII.) Today we want to talk about the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk that has been labels the most off-road ready trim of the Jeep Grand Cherokee line.

The new Trailhawk becomes the sixth trim level of the Grand Cherokee series, joining Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit, and the hot rod SRT.

Prices for the Jeep midsize SUV start at $29,995 and range to $64,695. Two option packages and three standalone items took the bottom line from a base of $43,095 to an as-tested price of $50,220. (These are just list prices and may be different at the All Star Jeep Dealership.)

Trailhawk is the most off-road-ready of all Grand Cherokees. Sold only with four-wheel drive, Trailhawk’s roster of standard gear includes Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system with an electronic, limited-slip rear differential. Quadra-Drive includes selectable, low-range gearing.

The Selec-Terrain traction control system lets drivers choose from five driving conditions — sand, mud, auto, snow, and rock — each with coordinated settings for powertrain, suspension, and braking systems. Quadra-Lift air suspension is adapted for Trailhawk to provide increased suspension travel and improved articulation. Skid plates add protection for vital underbody components. Hill-ascent and hill-descent controls maintain a set, slow speed for traversing uphill/downhill grades, freeing the driver to concentrate on steering, without need to touch the pedals. Speed can be adjusted via steering wheel paddles. Unusually, hill-descent control can also be used in reverse. (This information was compiled from jeep.com and couriertimes.com.)

Where are You Going?

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

“Where are you going?” This is a question that is asked to find out, in the short term, where you are going. What if we expanded the scope of the question to mean in the long term? This long term question is one that Jeep asked itself in the early 1990’s. Jeep had been a successful auto maker for a long time but were looking for a way to begin competing with the larger scale SUV models that were on the market.

Three trim levels were initially offered; base, Laredo and Limited. All models boasted two features not seen on other vehicles in the Grand Cherokee’s class: a driver’s side airbag and four-wheel antilock brakes. Base models had a few notable features such as full instruments, cloth interior and a five-speed manual gearbox. The Laredo added body cladding, fancier seats, power mirrors and cruise control. And the top-of-the-line Limited came with leather seating, A/C, four-speed automatic transmission, upgraded sound system and power everything. Later in the 1993 model year, the Grand Wagoneer debuted — essentially a G.C. Limited with simulated woodgrain tacked onto the body sides, just like dad’s old Ford LTD Country Squire Wagon.

Built on a stiff unibody chassis, which was lighter than a truck-like body-on-frame arrangement, the Grand Cherokee’s 105.9-inch wheelbase was 4.5-inches longer than the Cherokee’s, resulting in more legroom for those riding in the back. (This information was gathered from edmonds.com and jeep.com.)

This new Jeep Grand Cherokee model was so well received that it became a permanent part of the Jeep line up and added several other trim options. We invite you to head to All Star near Florissant and check out the incredible trims that the Jeep Grand Cherokee has to offer. The All Star team is waiting and ready to help!

Long Time Jeep Cherokee Fan

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Kirkwood

The Jeep Cherokee is a long time favorite in the Jeep line up. It has been around since the early 1970’s and people have always seemed to love it. Today we want to talk a little bit about the history of the Jeep Cherokee. You can also learn more about the Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Kirkwood.

Prior to 1984, the Cherokee moniker was attached to what amounted to a sportier version of Jeep’s Wagoneer. Mostly unchanged since its debut in the early 1960s, the Wagoneer was a large, truck-based, four-door wagon with four-wheel drive.

The former Cherokee, introduced as a 1974, shared most everything with the Wagoneer, including dimensions and engine selections. The major differences between the two were that the Cherokee was initially available only as a two-door (with the same wheelbase and length as the Wagoneer) and the Cherokee cost less than the more luxurious Wagoneer. A four-door Cherokee joined the lineup in 1977.

The 1984 Cherokee shared nothing with its predecessor, save its name. A shorter wheel- base (over 7 inches less than the “old” model, at 101.4 inches) and overall length (at 165.3 inches, a decrease of 21 inches) combined with a much lighter weight of around 3,100 pounds (over 1,000 pounds less than before) went a long way toward better fuel mileage and easier maneuverability, on-road or off. Two-door and four-door body styles were offered.

“Styling for the trim Cherokee was chiseled and taut, with muscular wheel well flares and a tall greenhouse that afforded good visibility for driver and passengers alike. The interior continued this theme with a likewise simple dash and control layout. Seating capacity was listed as five, though it was tight for three adults to ride in the backseat.”-edmonds.com

Chrysler Plans for the Next Few Years

Chrysler Cars at All Star near IL

Over the past year we have seen some changes in the Chrysler line up, but it turns out that there might be more changes coming to the beloved auto brand. We want to take a look at what some are saying we should expect over the next few years. As soon as these new cars are available, you will be able to see them at All Star near IL.

Chrysler 100: Plans for a Chrysler 100 small sedan have been shelved as part of the automaker’s production conversion to build more Jeeps and Rams. However, there has been talk about continuing with the plans for the 100 now that FCA has decided to invest in their existing factories instead of building in Mexico.

A Midsize Crossover?: Delayed to 2019, the front-wheel-drive, three-row vehicle will share a Fiat platform and many components with the Jeep Cherokee.

Chrysler 300: Redesign of Chrysler’s large sedan has been delayed until 2020, when it would move to the Giorgio platform if the model is continued. But the 300 is under consideration to be withdrawn after the 2020 model year.

The Hybrid Pacifica: The minivan will pick up a hybrid variant this fall that is expected to achieve an equivalent of about 75 mpg. Its next redesign won’t come until at least late 2019.

A Full-Size Crossover: The all-wheel-drive crossover with three rows of seats will share a platform and many features with the Pacifica, but without its sliding doors and Stow ’n Go seats. It has been delayed until 2018.

Bear in mind, this is just conjecture at this point, we are not sure about any of  these plans actually come true, except for the Hybrid Pacifica, that is happening. Stay tuned for more changes in the Chrysler line up; check them out as soon as they are available at All Star!

Goodbye Patriot, Hello Patriot?

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ellisville

We have heard for months that the Jeep Patriot would be merged with the Jeep Compass to make an awesome CUV mashup. We have gotten word about what this new model will look like, at it seems like it is going to resemble a baby Grand Cherokee. While you can still get the Jeep Patriot at All Star near Ellisville, we want to talk about what this new model might look like and feature.

Starting with the skin, it’s like Jeep’s designers scaled down the Grand Cherokee’s profile to fit on the new crossover’s stretched Renegade platform. The headlights, grille, and taillights looked like shrunken items from Jeep’s flagship crossover, too. This is good news – even after its 2011 facelift the Compass was a homely little thing, and the Patriot was boxy at a time when CUVs were going for smoother, more aerodynamic lines. Jeep’s new CUV is avoiding those mistakes by aping one of the company’s most popular designs.

Only the driver’s seat, steering wheel, and center stack appear in the interior images, so we can’t tell how the stretched chassis impacts rear-seat legroom compared to the Renegade/Fiat 500X. But in front, it looks like a Jeep – FCA’s corporate steering wheel and HVAC controls are present and accounted for, but the usual touchscreen display looks bigger the expected 8.4-inch unit. That could just be the camera angle playing tricks on our eyes. We can’t make any judgments about the material choices, but we’d expect quality to be on par with the larger Cherokee.

For more information on the existing Jeep Patriot or the new mash up model that is set to be released soon, head to All Star today. Their team would like to show you the great features of their new models!

New Platform for the Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Glendale

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the top models in the Jeep lineup. It has been popular for a long time with long time Jeep fans and new Jeep fans alike. While we were not anticipating any major changes on the Jeep Grand Cherokee to be announced at the auto show currently happening in Detroit, but we did learn some new information. We want to share this information with you today.

“At a roundtable discussion with members of the media, Marchionne revealed that the upcoming Jeep Grand Cherokee will be built on a rear-wheel-drive platform developed by Alfa Romeo,” (yahoo.com). To our ears, it sounds like Marchionne is referring to the platform currently being used in the Alfa Romeo Giulia-a platform which, in modified form, will underpin the upcoming Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV and a number of additional new Alfa offerings. With the Giulia and Stelvio both offering all-wheel drive, it shouldn’t be difficult for Jeep to integrate an off-road capable 4WD system into the shared platform.

It’s a telling, but logical, revelation. Fiat Chrysler is undertaking a massive product shift, in an effort to erase the massive debt the automaker currently carries, and platform sharing is a great way to extend the product portfolio while saving money on development costs. Those plans involve a huge new investment in updating FCA’s U.S. manufacturing plants to produce pickup trucks and crossovers, to the tune of $1 billion. (This announcement also means that there are likely to be at least 2000 new jobs added because of this investment.)

For more information on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, head to All Star near Glendale. Their team would be more than happy to talk about this new platform and have you test drive the Grand Cherokee.
