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.

New Wrangler Unlimited Interior!

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue

It is spy shot season! For those of you who do not know what a shy shot is, it is a photo of a mule (unfinished prototype of a new model or trim) that allows us to speculate on what the finished new product will look like. We have known for a while that the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited was going to get a redesign for the 2018 model year – what we did not realize was that the interior was going to get redesigned as well! Let’s take a look at what we saw on those spy shots

No longer will Wrangler owners be forced to peck haphazardly at the small, slow-to-react infotainment touchscreen that is the best offered in higher-end Wranglers today. As seen in this seemingly top-of-the-line mule, 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 the 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).

These shots also allow us to see many other buttons scattered across the new Wrangler’s center stack. Directly below the screen sit the truck’s automatic climate controls and a pair of big rubberized knobs for the audio system’s volume and tune functions. “Notably, this mule also features buttons for parking-assist sensors, engine stop/start functionality, and a heated steering wheel, the last of which likely will be appreciated by denizens of snow-covered areas.”-caranddriver.com

New Interior on the Jeep Wrangler 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!

Real Renegade Review!

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Chesterfield

We can tell you just how wonderful the Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Chesterfield is until we are blue in the face, but maybe you want the opinion of someone who has bought the Renegade and drives it on a daily basis. It just so happens that we know someone who bought the 2017 Jeep Renegade earlier this year and got them to share with us their feelings on their vehicle purchase.

This is my first Jeep purchase. I had liked the design of the Renegade since it was introduced and had been waiting for my old car to die before looking into them. I ended up liking the Trailhawk trim better than the others and opted for that one given it’s more off-road-ability (her word) and extra ground clearance. It actually is really fun to use in manual mode and responds perfectly to your needs. After a month of usage in the winter I am getting descent fuel economy. Right now averaging around 23 mpg. On a longer road trip I was getting 27. It seems to be getting better as I break it in and the weather gets warmer. The inside is very well laid out.  The driver display is awesome and can be customized to show what you want from radio stations to the digital speedometer or trip computer. I have the bigger Uconnect display and navigation package which are great additions. Bluetooth functionality is great and can stream your music without issue. You can also hook up anything via USB cable and it will pick up those devices to play music from. For one of the smaller compact SUVs in this segment Jeep makes it feel very spacious in the inside. -Marsha
