Jeep Cherokee Start

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Glendale

The start of the holiday season always makes us feel nostalgic for days gone by. It gets us thinking of warm feelings and favorite memories. Today we want to take a look back at how the Jeep Cherokee and how it started out. Remember, you can get the latest Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Glendale.

The Jeep Cherokee is a line of vehicles sold by Jeep under various vehicle classes. Originally sold as a variant of the popular Jeep Wagoneer, the Cherokee has evolved from a full-size SUV to one of the first compact SUVs and eventually into its current incarnation as a crossover SUV. The nameplate has been in continuous use in some form since 1974 and also spawned Jeep’s most successful vehicle, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was originally slated to be part of the Cherokee’s lineup. The vehicle is named after the Cherokee tribe of Native Americans.

The Cherokee was a redesigned reintroduction of a two-door body style Jeep Wagoneer, with a single fixed rear side window with an optional flip-out section. Previously, a two-door version had been available in the Jeep Wagoneer line from 1963 to 1967), although this had the same pillar and window configuration as the four-door Wagoneer. This replaced the Jeepster Commando, whose sales had not met expectations despite an extensive 1972 revamp. The Cherokee appealed to a younger market than the Wagoneer, which was regarded more as a family SUV.

The Cherokee was marketed as the “sporty” two-door variant of Jeep’s station wagon. The term “Sport Utility” appears for the first time in the 1974 Cherokee sales brochure. A four-door was not added to the lineup until 1977. Other than the base model, the trim levels of the Cherokee included the S (Sport), Chief, Golden Eagle, Golden Hawk, Limited, Classic, Sport, Pioneer, and Laredo.

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.)

Its aggressive styling and brawny V8 engine set it apart, while its abundant passenger space and plentiful features mean your family will be well taken care of. If you’re ready for something different, the Durango could work out well.

We know that the Dodge Durango has been around for a while but what is new for the 2017 model year?

Otherwise, there are only minor feature changes, including the new Anodized Platinum package with two-tone leather upholstery for the Citadel trim.

Dodge has kept this three-row crossover fresh, most notably with a significant update for 2014 that added a satisfying eight-speed automatic transmission and a revised interior with Chrysler’s excellent 8.4-inch touchscreen. Moreover, the fundamentals have always been strong with this one, including extraordinary towing capacity, available V8 power and adult-sized space in the third row.

“The 2017 Dodge Durango is available in four trim levels: SXT, GT, Citadel and R/T. Seven-passenger seating is standard, while second-row captain’s chairs that reduce capacity to six are optional. Note that the base SXT can be specified with just two rows of seats for 2017, while the other trims are three-row only.”-edmunds.com

Feel Rebellious in a Jeep Renegade

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer in Bridgeton

If you have a rebellious spirit and like to take your adventures off road, then you need to get a Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer in Bridgeton. It is a powerful SUV that is incredibly maneuverable and yet rides amazingly smooth. We want to take a look back at how the Renegade started.

The Jeep Renegade (BU) is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by Jeep. It is built in Melfi, Italy (alongside the related Fiat 500X); Goiana, Brazil (alongside the recently launched Fiat Toro); and in Guangzhou, China. It was first shown to the public in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show and mass-production started in late August of that year. The Renegade is the first Jeep product to be produced exclusively outside of North America and will sell in South African, European, North American, and Brazilian markets.

The Renegade offers two four-wheel drive systems Active Drive I and Active Drive Low, both of which are paired with Jeep’s Selec-Terrain System. It also has an available My Sky dual panel removable roof. The My Sky can be either retracted like a standard sunroof or removed completely for a more open-air experience, similar to that of the Jeep Wrangler.

At one time it was believed that the Renegade would replace the Compass and Patriot in the Jeep lineup, but the Renegade has since been clearly identified by Jeep as being in a smaller class than the MK twins. (This information was compiled from jeep.com and nadaguides.com.)

Test drive the incredible Jeep Renegade at All Star today. Their team would love to show you everything that the Renegade has to offer. Are you ready to be rebellious from behind the wheel of your own Jeep Renegade?


Jeep Renegade Expanding!

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near St. Louis

Those in the know, know that the Jeep Renegade is the crossover SUV to get if you want to have a great off road adventure and a smooth highway drive. We are really pleased to announce that for the 2017 model year that Jeep is expanding this model line!

Jeep is continuing to expand the Renegade subcompact crossover SUV model line with the addition of two new trims: the Altitude and the Deserthawk.

Like other Jeep models to previously wear the Altitude badge, the 2017 Jeep Renegade Altitude lands on the lot with a host of exterior and interior features dolled up in Gloss Black. This includes the crossover’s 18-inch wheels, badging, seven grille rings, and taillamp surrounds. Although the Altitude is available in a variety of colors, the interior is limited to just one—black.

Based on the $22,490 Renegade Latitude, the $23,385 Altitude includes features such as a rearview camera and proximity key with push-button start. A 160-hp 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine connected to a six-speed manual transmission is standard; however, $1330 buys a bigger, 180-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a nine-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is available with either powertrain for an extra $2000.

“The 2017 Jeep Renegade Deserthawk, meanwhile, appears to be little more than a U.S.-spec version of the Renegade Desert Hawk the brand revealed at the Paris auto show, itself based on a concept Jeep trotted out at its Easter Safari event in 2015. Despite its name being condensed to one word, the Deserthawk wears the same Moab map on its hood, U.S. Army–style star decals on its D-pillars, and black-painted, 17-inch wheels that can be found on the European Desert Hawk.”-caranddriver.com
