The Jeep Switchback is an interesting blend of currently available parts, potential Mopar offerings, and maybe a few things we’ll see on the Wrangler JL down the road.
Speed is typically not your friend on rugged, slick rock trails, but torque and horsepower are something every Jeep enthusiast can appreciate, and so in conjunction with its unveil at the New York Auto Show, Jeep unveiled the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in Moab, Utah during the Easter Jeep Safari. This new Jeep is hailed as the quickest, most powerful SUV ever.
It’s not everyday you get to hop in the passenger seat of a living legend’s Jeep, but that’s what happened when I grabbed a ride in Off-Road Hall of Fame member Curt LeDuc’s Skyjacker JK today at the Bestop trail run at Area BFE. It was a very full house today at Area BFE, as multiple trail runs were scheduled for the off-road park just outside Moab. Luckily for us, Bestop invited us to join their run and we were the first on the trail.
Toyota decided to end the run of the FJ Cruiser back in 2014. Even since, Toyota enthusiasts have been waiting to see if a replacement comes down the pipe.

There’s no real debate that the Jeep Wrangler is the most popular Jeep of all time, but the Grand Cherokee can make a very solid case for the runner-up spot. The Grand Cherokee these days is more geared toward the luxury-minded outdoor lover or suburban family in love with the idea of getting away, but when it was first unveiled 25 years ago this SUV still offered features that even the Jeep purists could get behind in spite of its utility focus.
