2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk review

Jeep doesn't just whack a Trail Rated badge on just anything. That's why we were keen to see just how good the all-new Jeep Compass Trailhawk is.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited review

Following on from our taste of the SRT, we take a look at the petrol V6 engine to see if it makes sense within the broad Jeep Grand Cherokee range.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT review

With the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, the company has a large SUV that can take on most comers in performance stakes, and also presents solid value for money.

Hitting the beach in the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon

Let's be up front about this – you simply cannot question the pedigree of the Jeep Wrangler, whose legend began in 1940 when the original four-wheel drive prototype was delivered to the U.S. Army. That first car was the grandfather of the Wrangler we still see on our roads today...

2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk review

See the full article here. Getting a 'Trail Rated' badge is far from just a marketing attempt to win sales. Jeep only awards the badge to bona fide off-road Jeeps capable of tackling a hardcore off-road course that would send most SUVs packing. The all-new 2018 Jeep Compass not only brings the brand massively forward from the last one, which scored a sub 5/10 rating from CarAdvice, it comes with the coveted Trail Rated badge in Trailhawk trim...

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

See the full article here. There’s absolutely no doubt the revised 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a watershed moment for the brand in Australia. Resounding success as recently as 2014 on the back of sharp pricing and quality inclusions, followed by the subsequent fall from grace in the form of recalls, service issues and parts availability – it's been an eventful few years for Jeep in Australia, that's for sure...

City to coast cruising: Chelsea Truck Company Black Hawk Jeep

Chelsea Truck Company Sydney is now open for business. You may have heard of Kahn Design and Project Kahn and Chelsea Truck Company is another arm founded by British Automotive Designer Afzal Kahn. Having started in the UK, it turns Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Defender and Mercedes-Benz G-Class vehicles into bespoke masterpieces...

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Review

Read the full article here. You could be forgiven for asking why Jeep engineers would take an already impressive off-roader and make it well, more off-roady. Is that even a word? Anyway, you know what I mean. The Jeep Grand Cherokee - with tricky diffs and off-road modes - was already a more than competent dirt track warrior, but now the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is even more capable and it’s all thanks to the addition of ‘Trailhawk’ to the title...

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited v Volkswagen Touareg 150TDI comparison

When it comes to SUVs, two names that have featured prominently in the segment’s expansion are Volkswagen Touareg and Jeep Grand Cherokee. Both names embody the meaning of SUV — they work well in and around the city, while also remaining fairly capable off the beaten track. With a starting price of just under $70,000, these two SUVs represent a curious position in the market...

Diesel SUV Comparison : Mazda CX-5 v Nissan X-Trail v Jeep Cherokee v Volkswagen Tiguan

They don’t call Australia the big brown land for nothing. Most of us may live near the blue of the ocean and travel on roads that are black, but there is plenty of brown stuff to be found everywhere else. Country folk who want a medium SUV aren’t necessarily looking at parking prowess or kerb-hopping abilities; rather the ability to cross big distance efficiently and effectively, often on dirt, is the score...

2012-13 Jeep Cherokee recalled for headrest fix

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has issued a recall notice for 1928 examples of the 2012-13 (KK) Cherokee over concerns the active headrests won't deploy correctly in an accident. According to the company, a failure in the 'occupant restraint controller' might prevent the active headrests from activating in a rear-end collision, increasing the risk of injury to the front seat occupants...

Jeep Australia readying fightback, after shocking few years

Jeep Australia says it is feeling revitalised and raring to rip into 2018 with a new model onslaught, following a few lean years of tanking sales, restricted new product offerings and a few image hits. The American SUV king was on top of the world in 2014, when it sold more than 30,000 new vehicles and almost knocked off Honda...

2018 Jeep Compass pricing and specs

Jeep's first new model in Australia for two years, the second-generation Compass, goes on sale this week. Rest assured, it shares absolutely nothing with its predecessor and its axed Patriot twin. Instead, it's been styled outside and fitted inside with better trim, to resemble a mini Grand Cherokee...

1996 Jeep Wrangler Sport (4x4) review

My 1996 Jeep Wrangler, or TJ as it is known to enthusiasts' world (USA) wide, is a complete departure for me. As an avid car enthusiast I have owned a dozen cars in my twenty-something years long life and they have been varied and dissimilar with the only common feature being that they must entertain me...

2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport (4x4) review

Have had this car since new and it now has 170,000 kilometres on it. It is the most reliable car I have ever owned – not one single issue. Starts first time – every time. On sealed roads, it is average at best and reversing can be a challenge (that spare!) but get on a dirt road and nothing will stop it or keep up with it...

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (4x4) Review

I have found the economy saving terrific when towing our caravan and the ride very comfortable and quiet. We have the Laredo diesel with Quadra lift, but got the free SatNav and front/rear parking sensors deal, which nearly brought it up to a Limited standard and all for only $54k. We got a lot of high end car and options for a great price...

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Jet Review

Beautiful and stylish vehicle to look at both inside and out with the blacked out grill and wheels, and luxury leather interior. Despite being a 2012 model it really hasn't aged or dated at all and I still get people thinking it's a brand new car. Interior space and comfort is great and the heated seats are a god send on a cold winters morning or after a winter surf...
