PostHeaderIcon Jeep Joining The Hybrid Bandwagon Is Proof That The Hybrid Revolution Is In Full Swing

Some automakers are synonyms with specific characteristics. Ferrari and Lamborghini are synonymous with Italian power and performance. Rolls-Royce and Bentley are quintessential marquees known for their opulence and luxury. Then there’s Jeep, which is known for its ruggedness and off-road capabilities. It figures then that when news first broke in 2015 that Jeep was going hybrid with some of its models, it was, to say the least, jarring to the senses. Fast forward to the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show and we finally get to see what a Jeep hybrid looks like in the form of the Yuntu, a three-row, seven-seater, full-sized SUV concept that’s laying the groundwork for a new era in the company’s long and illustrious history.

To be clear, there’s no official word yet from Jeep about the production prospects of the Yuntu Concept. There is, however, a strong possibility that we’re headed in that direction anyway. Remember, Jeep CEO Mike Manley has been a strong advocate of dipping the company in the hybrid market, most recently confirming at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show the arrival of a hybrid version of the Wrangler. The Yuntu, of course, is far different from the Wrangler, both in aesthetics and purpose. But the mere sight of the concept in Shanghai is an indication that the brand has a more elaborate hybrid plan that will involve numerous models receiving this specific powertrain. Just goes to show how brand images are now giving way to addressing the future of the auto industry.

PostHeaderIcon The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Is Big And Dumb And Pointless And I Really Want To Drive It

In case you haven’t noticed, let me be the first to tell you – there’s some really weird things going on in the auto industry these days, especially when it comes to performance machines. Some of the fastest cars on the planet are hybrids (Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1), and the all-electrics aren’t that far behind. But probably the weirdest trend of them all is the performance SUV craze. These are two terms that make for strange bedfellows – “performance,” as in going fast, and “SUV,” as in big and tall and heavy and utilitarian. These things shouldn’t go together, but go together they do thanks to cutting-edge engineering magic. Performance SUVs seem to flaunt their resistance to the laws of physics, and the latest entry in this segment (and perhaps one of the most celebrated) is the vaunted Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, a Hellcat-powered off-roader-turned-dragster that promises tire-shredding power and absurd speed potential in a tall-bodied package. It’s big, dumb, and completely pointless. And I really wanna drive it.

I’ll explain. When I first heard the rumors Jeep was fixing to stuff an SUV with Hellcat power, I was perplexed. I found the idea of a 700-horsepower SUV to be absurd and unnatural. If acceleration and speed is what you’re after, why go to the trouble of making it happen in a body style so out of line with that stated goal?

I still feel that way now, and probably always will. For the price of a Trackhawk, you could easily get two vehicles to fill the dual roles of speed-maker and utility hauler, each of which would do their respective duty better than a single Trackhawk ever could.

But that still doesn’t mean I don’t want to drive this thing.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL to get SRT Demon Edition, Inside Source Says!

Jeep will build a 750+ horsepower Wrangler Unlimited with all the racing components found on the upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, including the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 and Drag Mode. The information comes directly from TopSpeed’s anonymous inside source that works closely with SRT projects. Best of all, the Jeep will be called the Demon Wrangler.

“Jeep is expanding its boundaries with the Grand Cherokee SRT Trackhawk, but some in the company though more was needed,” said our informant during a chat on the dark web. “The Wrangler is our hottest product, so we figured a track-focused edition would get plenty of traction – pun intended.”

The Demon Wrangler will use super wide, 315-series performance tires from Nitto, while its 4WD system is upgraded to a full-time AWD system with beefy components able to withstand hard launches. The interior is complete with a flat-bottom steering wheel, a five-point racing harness, and the Performance Pages on the new Uconnect system.

Under the hood, the Hemi V-8 will use the A/C to chill the liquid-to-air heat exchanger, just like the Challenger Demon. The transmission brake is also present, allowing the Demon Wrangler’s supercharger to reach full boost before launching.

Our inside source says official speed trials have not been completed, but preliminary runs show the Demon Wrangler hitting 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 10.82 seconds at 125 mph – just a hair’s breath slower than the Challenger Demon due to wind resistance.

The insider was adamant these details are mythical, due in large part to a Jeep’s inability to wrangle demons. Happy April 1st, everybody.


PostHeaderIcon Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with Hellcat Power to Debut at New York Auto Show

When Dodge blew the doors off the performance car market with the Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat models, fanboys everywhere started begging for the 707-pony powerplant to be introduced into just about every model under FCA’s American brands that were worthy of such royalty. Seriously, it’s kind of ridiculous how badly the masses want Hellcat-powered machines. There were even rumors circulating at one time that there would be a Hellcat-powered Chrysler Pacifica – we even made a speculative review and a rendering just in case. That model just isn’t going to happen, of course, but a Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee was confirmed back in 2016, and we’ve all be desperately waiting for it to make its first appearance. Now, if Motor Authority is to be believed, a “reliable source” has claimed that the Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will make its official debut at the New York Auto Show alongside the Challenger SRT Demon.

For now, official specs and details have been kept a complete secret. Some rumors indicate that the Trackhawk could be tuned to deliver even more power than the Challenger SRT Hellcat, but more than likely, it will get the same 6.2-liter V-8 with 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. The Trackhawk will have an all-wheel-drive setup which could, in theory, make it even quicker off the line than the other Hellcat models on the market right now. Then again, to ease strain on the AWD system, Jeep could very well slim down at least first and second gear to help balance things out for reliability reasons.

As far as actual performance goes, the Trackhawk should be one hell of a monster. Considering the brand-new Dodge Durango SRT and its 475-horsepower, Hemi, V-8 can hit 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds; the Trackhawk should be able to topple that hands down. Expected 60 mph to come in as quickly as four seconds flat and the potential for a quarter mile run to come in the high-ten-second range. Now, that’s one fast SUV right there, don’t you think?

PostHeaderIcon Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon Is Spec-Ops Worthy

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon-0

The actual vehicles the Special Forces use on their reconnaissance missions cost a lot more than the 40 grand this Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon edition costs. But I don’t think they would object if sue to budget cuts or whatever they get the Jeep instead. Point is, the Rubicon Recon is built to take some serious punishment.

Envisioned as one of the most off-roady versions of this model, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon comes with a stronger front axle, enhanced rock rails and heavy-duty cast differential covers, plus rock rails that are shortened to accommodate up to 35-inch tires. There is also four-wheel-drive system with electronic-locking front and rear Dana 44 axles and a Rock-Trac transfer case with a “4-Low” ratio of 4:1, giving the Recon a crawl ratio of 73.1:1.

Other off-road highlights, which also contribute to the badass looks of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon include a half-inch lift, new 17-inch Low Gloss Granite Crystal-painted aluminum wheels wrapped in 32-inch BF Goodrich KM off-road tires, optional body-color fender flares and a dual-vented Power Dome hood with a black-silhouette “Rubicon” decal on both sides. You can have the truck in Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, Firecracker Red, Gobi, Rhino and Granite Crystal.

Priced from $39,145 for the two-door model and $42,945 for the Wrangler Unlimited (four-door) model, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon also has an exclusive interior with black leather heated seats with a “Rubicon” embroidered logo and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with red accent stitching, black vinyl-wrapped front door armrest and console lid with black stitching, red accent netting on front and rear door pockets and the center console, and red accent-colored seatbelts.

PostHeaderIcon Is This the Grille for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler?

The upcoming 2018 Jeep Wrangler – known as the JL – is set to make its debut sometime in the near future, and for Jeep fanatics, this is good news. But, the rumor mill has been very busy, and some are worried that the next-gen model, which replaces the decade-old JK – won’t stay true to its roots. To put it simply, the JL’s success relies heavily on whether or not Jeep can deliver a modernized Wrangler that handle better, be more comfortable, is loaded with technology, but can still be cleaned by spraying a little water inside and out. All of the usual media outlets, including ourselves, have created renderings in anticipation of the JL’s long-awaited debut, and just recently, a sheet metal fabricator sent JL Wrangler Forums a picture of what is supposedly the grille of the upcoming JL.

From what we’ve been told, the grille was obtained in the course of a job the anonymous sheet metal fabricator was working on. And, be that is it may, one can’t argue with the fact that it does, indeed, look authentic. It features a widened, seven-slot layout and is even void of the turn signal lights that have been moved and integrated into the front fenders. It also features the mid-section curve. If we had to bet, we would say this is the real deal, but we’ll leave that up to you to decide for yourself.

When it comes to the JL very little is actually known. We’ve seen a leaked photo of a Rubicon hood that was being used for testing, and now we’re looking at this grille. Rumor has it that Jeep may reposition the side-view mirrors to address the legality of on-road usage with the doors removed. When it comes to the roof, there is said to be three different options, including a powered soft top, a hard top glass panel, and a true, three-piece top. This in itself is big news if it turns out to be true, as many have said that lack of a removable roof would be a deal breaker. The other big thing that we’re concerned with is the engine options that are said to include an updated version of the 3.6-liter Pentastar and the addition of a 3.0-liter, EcoDiesel, V-6 that is borrowed from the Ram 1500. Both should be available with the eight-speed ZF automatic transmission while a six-speed manual transmission should also be on the table.

PostHeaderIcon Jeep Considering Building Rival To Nissan Juke

On the heels of unveiling the facelifted Jeep Grand Cherokee and a pair of special edition models to commemorate its 75th anniversary, Jeep boss Mike Manley unloaded another interesting bit of news that should get fans of the brand hyped and excited. Speaking with Autocar, Manley admitted that there’s a possibility the company will build an all-new model that would slow below the Renegade and serve as Jeep’s response to the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur.

Manley didn’t dive into the details of what Jeep’s cooking up, but if the model does come to fruition, it’s still going to have the off-road qualities that Jeep is known for. The question now is whether or not the company will follow the same quirky design spirit of the Juke, a model that isn’t exactly a beacon of conventional styling.

It’s still unclear how far along Jeep is in the discussions about such a model, but one thing’s likely; it’s not going to arrive anytime soon. That said, there are reports that Jeep’s India division is working on a B-segment SUV. It reportedly even has a codename – 526 – and is described as being less than four meters (13.12 feet) long. Manley didn’t say if there’s any connection between that model and the company’s overarching plans of building a sub-Renegade model, but it does sound like something that’s worth keeping tabs on.


PostHeaderIcon More Details Surface on 2018 Jeep Compass

The debut of the 2018 Jeep Compass has finally stirred the contents at the bottom of Jeep’s barrel, bringing new action to a stale segment. We’ve already told you everything Jeep official released for the U.S. media, but now sources in Brazil are posting more detailed info on the little cute ‘ute.

To be clear, the Compass just started production in Brazil for global markets. That’s why the news is coming from South America. The U.S.-spec Compass will be built in Mexico and make its official debut at the 2016 LA International Auto Show in November. Stay tuned for that.

Anyways, thanks to MotorChase (and Jalopnik for finding the news) we now know even more details regarding Jeep’s newest crossover. Skip on down for the full blast of stats and measurements.

PostHeaderIcon Hackers Have Stolen More Than 30 Jeeps and Have Finally Been Arrested

A while back news surface of high-tech thieves that managed to steal a Jeep in a matter of minutes. So far, the tally of Jeeps stolen by hackers in the Houston area has risen to more than 30, but Local police have finally caught up with these two hackers and have arrested them. As reported by local media outlet ABC 13, the local police had been aware of the robberies, but until a home surveillance video caught the thieves in the act, they had very little to go by.

The two that have been arrested go by the names Michael Arcee and Jesse Zelaya, but local police say there is a possibility that they aren’t the only ones taking advantage of the vulnerability. According to the report, the hackers were using pirated software to infiltrate the vehicle’s built-in security system and bypass it. This enabled them to start the vehicle and roll away in as little as six minutes. It’s not exactly like Gone in 60 Seconds, but six minutes isn’t very long either. According to HPD, the jeeps were being stolen and smuggled into Mexico.

It is important to note that outside of the Pirated software, the hackers also had to gain entry into the vehicle without setting off the alarm. Most stock alarm systems are set to only go off if the door is opened from the interior after it has been locked, so to prevent that the thieves either climbed through a broken window or the vehicles were unlocked – the latter of which is the most likely scenario. Once they were in, it is safe to assume the laptop was plugged into the OBDII diagnostics port with a simple USB adapter available at multiple online outlets. The software that was used is still unknown at this time, but it’s safe to assume that it was likely FCA internal software that was stolen at one point or another.

PostHeaderIcon Parents Of Late Star Trek Star Files Lawsuit Against Fiat Chrysler

The parents of actor Anton Yelchin are planning to take legal action against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles over the death of their 27-year old son on June 19, 2016. According to the Associated Press, an attorney who represents the Yelchin’s parents announced their plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the automaker, which they hold responsible for releasing a vehicle – a Jeep Grand Cherokee – that had a confusing shifter design that led to some cars to roll away by themselves.

Yelchin’s family believes that the actor’s Grand Cherokee was one of the affected models and the problem manifested itself at the worst possible time when it rolled down his driveway and pinned him against a brick pillar and security fence. Yelchin died on the scene from traumatic injuries sustained from the horrible episode.

A coroner ruled the actor’s death an accident, but that apparently isn’t stopping his parents from taking FCA to court on the grounds that it made a defective vehicle that caused their son’s death. If it is determined that the confusing gear shifter design played a role in the actor’s untimely passing, it would become the first incident of someone dying because of the defect. That said, a government investigation revealed that there have been 268 documented crashes because of the gear shifters and 68 people have been injured because of it as of June 2016.

For its part, FCA has sent out its condolences to Yelchin’s family, but so far has refused to comment on the planned lawsuit.

Update: During a press conference on August 2, 2016, the lawyer of Yelchin’s parents claims that a recall notice was sent to Yelchin seven days after his untimely death.

PostHeaderIcon Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

The doors of the 2016 New York Auto Show are open, and there are lots of things to look and talk about. Remember the “Trailhawk” concept that Jeep introduced back at the 2012 Easter Jeep Safari? Well, that concept was so widely accepted, Jeep made it a trim level for the 2014 model year of the Jeep Cherokee. The following year, it was brought back as a trim level for the Jeep Renegade. Now, Jeep is bringing the “Trailhawk” name to the 2017 Grand Cherokee, promising it will be the “most capable factory-produced Grand Cherokee ever.”

Mike Manley, Head of the Jeep Brand for FCA Global, said, “Our Cherokee and Renegade Trailhawk models are among our fastest selling and most sought-after models, and we are following that successful formula to provide consumers even more legendary Jeep 4×4 capability for Grand Cherokee – the most awarded SUV ever.”

The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk will be on display at the New York Auto Show until April 3rd, and, according to Jeep, it’s slated to arrive in Jeep showrooms toward the end of the summer, which means you’ll be able to get your hands on one just in time for some fall off-roading. Until then, however, let’s take a look at the new Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and why you’ll probably want to buy one if you’re a Jeep guy.

PostHeaderIcon Super Off-Roader: Jeep Wrangler by Forgiato

Jeep Wrangler Forgiato-0

The guys at Forgiato Wheels are very fond of Jeep Wrangler on the whole, but they don’t like the way the car looks and feels and goes. That’s why every time they get their hands on one of these cars they set about modifying pretty much everything about it. The good thing is, more often than not these changes are for the better.

In the case of this particular Jeep Wrangler, which is an Unlimited Sport model, the boys actually held back a bit, content with only modifying the SUV’s wheels and tires as well as suspension. Usually that would only be the start. They’d then change every body panel and install every after market part there is.

But this Wrangler remains pretty much standard in the way it looks, except for the bumpers and wheel arches – necessary changes to house the new wheels and suspension. Speaking of wheels and suspension, this Jeep gets a set of absolutely massive Forgiato ESPORRE wheels in candy blue with chunky off-road tires, and suspension upgrade consisting of high performance coilover set-up with trailing arms, control arms, and springs.

Other visual mods include an LED lights bar and some blue accents around the sills and door handles as well as the windscreen. You know, the lightest Forgiato treatment could well be the best.

PostHeaderIcon AutoGuide Gets Acquainted With The Jeep Wrangler Willys Edition: Video

Very few cars, if any, embody America quite like the Jeep Wrangler. The timeless off-road vehicle has been at the forefront of American’s off-road adventures dating back to the last century. This kind of tradition hasn’t aged with time and the perfect embodiment of that is the Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition, a special edition Wrangler that pays homage to Jeep’s long and storied history with the US military. Recently, AutoGuide took some time to get acquainted with the Wrangler Willys to go over all the details of the special edition model and, more importantly, to determine why the Wrangler continues to be one of America’s most popular vehicles.

One of the Wrangler Willys Wheeler’s most defining characteristics is it’s unique exterior package. Unlike other Wranglers, this model comes with a unique Army Green paint finish and black decals written in military font. That’s just the start of it. Aesthetics aside, this variant of the Wrangler is loaded with off-road features that make it well-suited for the roads less traveled.

There’s more to the Wrangler Willys Wheeler’s Edition that I’m putting on here and the only reason I’m saving all the juicy bits is because I want you to watch the video for yourself. I can talk ’till the cows come home, but there’s nothing like watching it run roughshod over rugged terrains to get a better understanding on why the Wrangler Willys is a special kind of Wrangler and why the Wrangler itself has etched its name into America’s automotive history.


PostHeaderIcon Jeep Renegade Commander Concept

The 50th annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari is coming up with a quickness, and Jeep has put together a number of functional concepts to bring to the party. Some are more interesting and more in-depth than others, but each and every one is special in its own way. Today I’m taking a look at the Jeep Renegade Commander Concept, and while it isn’t as crazy as the Jeep Trailcat Concept or as iconic as the Jeep Crew Chief 715, it does offer its own unique features that are well worth talking about.

Jeep and Mopar have been teaming up to build functional concepts for the Easter Jeep Safari since 2002, using a range of Mopar Performance Parts, and some custom parts to get the job done. Unlike some of the concepts, this Renegade Commander Concept could be replicated pretty easily if it was really something you wanted to take the time to do – a lot easier than the Trailcat Concept anyway.

As you would expect, this concept features a number of different add-ons to make it more worthy of off-roading, but Jeep and Mopar didn’t go overboard on this one. Of course, the Renegade wasn’t that bad for off-roading to begin with, but the features we’re about to discuss makes it that much better. Surely this model will be a blast on the trails in Moab, Utah this year.

PostHeaderIcon Geneva Preview: Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk by Kahn Design

Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk-prv

Kahn Design’s booth at this year’s Geneva Motor Show is shaping up to be quite a spectacle. Besides the unique Aston Martin-based Vengeance Flying Huntsman 110 6×6 Defender Double Cab Pickup, the British firm is also bringing this, Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk, to the show.

Now, as you can see in the picture Kahn’s Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk is sort of matte grey. But that’s not the point. When this package becomes available you’ll be able to choose whatever color you want. Black Hawk refers to the styling package which is a new take on the tuner’s Chelsea Truck Company CJ300 kit we’ve featured here a number of times.

So Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk comes with new and very well-designed grille and bumpers, sexy new side panels including front wings and rear fender extension, new side steps, sport hood, Kahn RS wheels, and, one would imagine, an interior package with items such as sport seats, Kahn steering wheel, diamond-stitched leather upholstery and a Churchill clock.

Kahn’s other 2016 Geneva highlights include Black Kirsch over Madeira Red Range Rover Vogue and an Imperial Blue Project Kahn Range Rover Sport, both showcased for the first time in Pace Car specification.

Jeep Renegade Dawn of Justice-0

As part of their joint marketing campaign with Warner Bros. Pictures, Fiat-Chrysler released a special edition version of the Jeep Renegade that marks the premiere of the highly anticipated Batman v Superman. The car is called – you guessed it – Jeep Renegade Dawn of Justice edition.

Granted, the car they’ve picked for this treatment is not very heroic, but at least it comes with a good amount of exclusive visual features and equipment. The $26,250 Jeep Renegade Dawn of Justice edition boasts Carbon Black exterior paint, 18-inch Gloss Black wheels and Gloss Black accents around the exterior. You can also order a Granite Crystal paint job with a two-tone Gloss Black roof. Either way, the car is distinguished by exclusive exterior badging.

Inside the cabin Jeep Renegade Dawn of Justice features black premium cloth seats and High Gloss Black finishes, as well as Metal Diamond accents on the shifter knob and door handles. Equipment-wise, the special edition is based on the Latitude 4×4 and comes standard with a 2.4-liter Tigershark engine with MultiAir2, nine-speed automatic transmission, Jeep Active Drive 4×4, Selec-Terrain, ParkSense rear backup camera, remote start, power driver’s seat and dual-zone automatic temperature control.

Too bad most of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie are either too young to drive or too broke to afford one.

PostHeaderIcon Jeep Cherokee SRT8 Stormtrooper on Vossen Wheels

Jeep Cherokee SRT8 Stormtrooper-0

Over the years we have seen many cars given with the Stormtrooper treatment. It’s an easy look to achieve and we guess it’s kind of cool as well, because the whole Star Wars thing seems to have become cool all of a sudden. Anyway, this one’s based on a Jeep Cherokee SRT8 and it’s a good one.

The design of Jeep Cherokee SRT8 responds well to the Stormtrooper look, what with those headlights and slanted front grille. Not to mention, the SUV has a sculpted and athletic body that sort of resembles the chiseled look of a Stormtrooper. So naturally, the lower part of the car from the windows down is painted white, while the upper body, including the pillars, roof and tailgate, is finished in gloss black. The bonnet is carbon fiber.

But a big part of whole look is a set of Vossen Forged VPS-302 wheels in black. They complete the Stormtrooper outfit on this Jeep Cherokee SRT8 and complement the design of the car as well. This SRT8, which was a featured car at SEMA last year, is also equipped with a GT Haus sport exhaust system on its 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine. Not sure if it adds more horsepower to the 468-hp output, but it definitely has a positive effect on the soundtrack, as you can hear in the video.

Not to mention, the SUV has a sculpted and athletic body that sort of resembles the chiseled look of a Stormtrooper. So naturally, the lower part of the car from the windows down is painted white, while the upper body, including the pillars, roof and tailgate, is finished in gloss black. The bonnet is carbon fiber.

But a big part of whole look is a set of Vossen Forged VPS-302 wheels in black. They complete the Stormtrooper outfit on this Jeep Cherokee SRT8 and complement the design of the car as well. This SRT8, which was a featured car at SEMA last year, is also equipped with a GT Haus sport exhaust system on its 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine. Not sure if it adds more horsepower to the 468-hp output, but it definitely has a positive effect on the soundtrack, as you can hear in the video.

PostHeaderIcon Jeep Releases Two 60-Second Commercials During Super Bowl 50

The mystery surrounding Fiat-Chrysler’s two Super Bowl commercials was lifted when a pair of Jeep ads were shown during the game. Both commercials continued a recurring theme from FCA to deviate away from engaging in humor and histrionics. Instead, we got a pair of ads that highlighted Jeep’s 75th anniversary in two distinct ways.

The first ad, called “Portraits”, touched on Jeep’s long and storied history dating back to its birth in 1941 and the many people and moments that have helped make it the brand that it is today. In as much as Jeep is an auto brand, the ad wanted to send the message that the brand was born from a collaboration of people from all walks of life, particularly those who have helped shape the history of the world. To illustrate that point, Jeep relied on a montage of curated images, including celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, BB King, Steve McQueen, and Amelia Earhart, as well as pop culture films like the Terminator and Jurassic Park – two movies that the company played prominent parts in – and iconic moments in the world’s history. The tagline, “We don’t make Jeep, you do”, perfectly captures the sentiment of the commercial and it’s only fitting, at least in Jeep’s eyes, that it uses its 75th anniversary to indirectly say thank you to all of its customers.

The second ad, called “4x4ever”, wasn’t as sentimental as Portraits. Instead, it picked up from where the first ad left off and showed the brand’s outlook for the future, especially for its customers. According to Jeep, 4x4ever isn’t just a tagline but a representation of the brand’s identity as the go-to companion for adventurers all over the world. It’s also a far more upbeat commercial that relied on the custom musical track provided by recording artist Morgan Dorr.
