For every Jeep vehicle on the road or trail, there are countless stories and memories related to that rig. A Jeep’s memories can span multiples families and generations. For Mark Allen, Head of Jeep Design, the Shortcut Concept pays homage to what is one of the most iconic and memorable Jeeps to him, the CJ-5.
Suwanee, GA – Rugged Ridge recently announced the introduction of its new XHD Rock Sliders for the 2007-2016 Jeep Wrangler JK, designed to provide maximum protection for the Jeep’s most vulnerable points – the lower rocker panel and pinch seam.
Although we’ve seen concept vehicles, Mopar aftermarket kits, and custom builders create different versions of a Jeep pickup, today multiple outlets are reporting that Jeep CEO Mike Manley and Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed that a Jeep pickup will be offered when the new 2018 Wrangler hits the market in 2017.
It’s just a peek, but today Jeep released a first glimpse at the concept vehicles it will bring out to the 49th Annual Easter Jeep Safari. The annual gathering of Jeepers will take place at the end of March in Moab, Utah. Jeep will bring out seven different new concept vehicles for this year’s event, all of which will feature Jeep Performance Parts from Mopar.
According to a recent story from Automotive News, the next-generation Jeep Wrangler will not move to an independent suspension design and will retain floating solid axles. The next version of the Wrangler, expected to be a 2018 model that we should see in late 2017, will reportedly receive suspension updates to improve the SUV’s fuel economy and its on- and off-road ride.
