2021 Jeep Wrangler 392 review: High-speed off-road high jinks

We begged for a V8 Wrangler, and boy did Jeep deliver.
By Emme Hall, May 24,2021, RoadShow

"It's a very weird sensation: Here I am behind the wheel of a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon SUV, and I've just chirped the tires and rocketed to 60 mph in less than five seconds. It's unnatural. And I love it.

It's been 40 years since the 1981 Jeep CJ had a 5.0-liter V8 under the hood, producing a mere 125 horsepower. Times certainly have changed -- the 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392 uses a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with a stonking 470 hp and 470 pound-feet of torque. It makes for heart-pounding, head-tossing, seat belt-locking and maniacal laugh-inducing fun. But there are still a few issues with this otherwise thrilling package.

When I start the 392, it defaults to the wake-the-neighbors loud setting, so right away I know it means business. Around town, the V8 burbles and grumbles, the eight-speed automatic transmission quietly working in the background. When I reach a long straight on a back road, I switch to the paddle shifters (in a Jeep!) and floor it. The nose rises up, my head snaps back and the full-time four-wheel-drive system gets the power down to the 33-inch BF Goodrich KO2 tires. After around 4.5 seconds, I'm at 60 mph. Goodness."

2022 Jeep Compass: Is This the Coolest Shape of a Gadget-Era Jeep So Far?

by: Alexandru Sincan | May 17, 2021 | autoevolution.com

The first generation of the Jeep Compass series was something like a subcompact SUV of the early 2000s with an improvised traditional Jeep face added. It was using the Dodge Caliber technical platform as many other subcompact and compact family cars and SUVs of the American branch of the DaimlerChrysler group (1995-2007). Uninspiring start.

In 2011, the front end of the Compass was radically redesigned to resemble the Grand Cherokee model series. Already much better! The second generation was launched in 2018 as a product of the FCA group (formed in 2014).

The vision behind it was far more coherent than in the case of the previous generation. The second generation of the Jeep Compass had it all from the beginning: the modern technology of the SCCS (Small Common Components and Systems) platform, efficient engines, a 9-speed automatic transmission and a nicely integrated design. More than ever, it was clear that Compass aspired to the role of "mini-me" of the contemporary Grand Cherokee. A mini-me with a length of, however, 173 in (4,395 m). That's a quite serious car! Worthy to be mentioned: this was the first Jeep specially designed to hit global roads. Read More

Accessorize your 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe with these new performance parts

Jeep Performance Parts now offers a range of cool new components for its electrified Wrangler 4xe.

Craig Cole | May 3, 2021 | Roadshow

"The 2021 Wrangler 4xe is the new hotness from Jeep. This hard-core off-roader melds the go-nearly-anywhere prowess of a standard Wrangler with the added efficiency and near-silent operation of a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. But for customers who want a little bit more capability or an extra dash of style, last week Jeep announced a range of new performance parts and accessories for the 4xe.

Available through the Mopar online store, these components include everything from all-weather floor mats and a molded cargo tray to off-road lights, a reinforced swing gate and even an awesome new front bumper. Arguably, the most important item on offer is a 2-inch suspension lift kit, supposedly an industry first for a plug-in hybrid vehicle. Priced at a not-unreasonable $1,495, this components set includes four springs, Fox shock absorbers, new stabilizer bar links, a bucket of fasteners and more."

See the 2020 Jeep Wagoneer at the 2021 Atlanta Auto Show


Viknesh V. | April 9, 2021 | motorauthority
The Atlanta International Auto Show, now into its 39th year, kicks off on April 14 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, and Jeep will be present with its 2022 Wagoneer.

Jeep unveiled the reborn Wagoneer in March, in both regular and extra-plush Grand Wagoneer guises. The Wagoneer is more your Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition alternative while the Grand Wagoneer has enough luxury to challenge the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator, as well as some of the full-size SUVs from the German brands. Unlike some of those rivals, the Wagoneer comes in only one length for now.

Underpinning the vehicle is a modified version of the body-on-frame platform from the latest Ram 1500 pickup. An independent multi-link rear suspension should contribute to a smooth ride and air suspension will be available (standard on the Grand Wagoneer) for those that desire extra comfort.

Power in the Wagoneer comes from a 5.7-liter V-8 that makes 392 hp and 404 lb-ft of torque with the assistance of a mild-hybrid system. An 8-speed automatic is standard and buyers will be able to choose from three distinct four-wheel-drive systems. The Grand Wagoneer gets a 6.4-liter V-8 with 471 hp and 455 lb-ft, as well as the top-of-the-range Quadra Drive II 4WD system as standard.

As the official photos show, the interior of the Wagoneer is a very nice place to be, especially in Grand Wagoneer guise. A digital instrument cluster is standard and is joined by a second screen for the infotainment and an available third screen for the climate settings. Grand Wagoneer buyers can opt for a fourth screen for the front passenger.

Drag Race: Lamborghini Urus Vs. Dodge Durango Hellcat Vs. Jeep Trackhawk


Martin Bigg | April 9, 2021 | CARBUZZ

The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk are both powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 rated at 710 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque in the Durango SRT Hellcat and 707 hp/645 lb-ft in the Trackhawk. The Urus, on the other hand, packs a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 pumping out 641 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque.

While the Durango SRT Hellcat has the most power, it's also the heaviest out of the three SUVs, tipping the scales at 5,710 pounds. By contrast, the Urus has the least power but is the lightest out of the trio, making for an interesting race.

In the first drag race, all three SUVs race off the line using launch control. Despite its huge heft, the Durango SRT Hellcat immediately pulls ahead of its competitors and crosses the line first, followed closely by the Trackhawk and Urus. For round two, launch control is switched off but the Durango still takes the victory, with the Trackhawk and Urus finishing in second and third place respectively, but the Trackhawk closed the gap towards the end for a close finish. In the third and final round, all three SUVs duke it out in a rolling drag race.

This time, the results are reversed: the lighter Urus finishes first, followed by the Trackhawk and Durango. Considering the significant price difference between the Durango SRT Hellcat ($80,995), and the Urus ($207,326), the fact the American heavyweight only lost one race is seriously impressive.

Jeep Magneto: Electrifying the Easter Jeep Safari with a Wrangler EV

 

The Easter Jeep Safari has become synonymous with factory-backed concepts and customs, and this year is no different. The headline grabber of 2021 is called the Jeep Magneto, and it's truly unlike anything the off-road brand has ever assembled. As its name hints, the Magneto is fully electric, with an electric motor under the hood that hooks up to a standard six-speed manual transmission that sends power to solid front and rear axles through a two-speed transfer case.

To be sure, this is not a typical electric car concept. Electrification usually equals a chance to completely rethink traditional car-building and designing techniques. In the case of the Magneto, however, all of the powertrain bits - which includes the motor and several battery packs - has been hidden inside a stock steel Wrangler Rubicon chassis and bodywork. It's unconventional in that it's all rather conventional. Read More

Big news: 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L revealed with seating for 7 and spy cam

By Gary Gastelu, 1/7/2021, foxnews
Along with the rebooted Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer full-size SUVs, the brand is introducing the 2022 Grand Cherokee L to its lineup, which is the first three-row version of its top-selling model and will compete with the likes of the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander.

The all-new vehicle is scheduled to go on sale this spring, and will be followed by a two-row version without the L later in the year that will include a plug-in hybrid powertrain option.

The Grand Cherokee L features styling inspired by the original Wagoneer, with a longer hood and boxier cabin than the outgoing Grand Cherokee, which first went on sale in 2011, along with a slightly forward-slanted grille.

Three different all-wheel-drivetrains with increasing levels of off-road capability will be offered, along with the choice of a 290 hp 3.6-liter V6 engine or 357hp 5.7-liter V8 that can tow up to 7,200 pounds.

The Grand Cherokee L will also be available with a Quadra-Lift air suspension system that's equipped with computer-controlled shocks and can increase the ground clearance from 8.3 inches to 10.9 inches for off-road driving or lower it to 6.5 inches to make it easier to get into.

High tech driving aids include a head-up display, night vision camera and a hands-on lane-centering and adaptive cruise control system that will be followed in the 2022 model year by a hands-free one similar to Cadillac's Super Cruise.

The cabin will be offered in seven-passenger and six-passenger configurations with a camera that the driver can use to monitor the third row and rear-facing child seats installed in the second row using the 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system display. A digital gauge cluster and rearview camera-equipped mirror are additional improvements over the current Grand Cherokee's interior, as are the Palermo leather and open-pore oak and walnut trim that comes in high-end models.
