2018 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition review

All good things must come to an end. In the case of the Jeep Wrangler, the latest Freedom Edition special-edition model sends the long-running JK series off ahead of an all-new Wrangler set to arrive Down Under in 2019.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited diesel review

Premium equipment list, V6 diesel power, properly off-roadable and strong towing promise the right SUV stuff for Oz. But does the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited add up to the sum of its parts?

2019 Jeep Wrangler review: Tacos, burgers and surfboards in SoCal

One of the world’s most closely guarded secrets is when the next Land Rover Defender might appear and what it will look like. No-one seems to know anything, not a single solitary thing. Not when, what, where or how. Nothing. For years, it’s been a total information lockdown, as if Britain’s domestic spy agency, MI5, is running the communications department up at Land Rover’s HQ in Gaydon – at least as far as the next-generation Defender goes...

2018 Jeep Compass review: Rockhoppin' in Tassie

The Jeep Compass was once our lowest-scoring car. Can the new 2018 Compass prove it's now on the right path?

2018 Jeep Cherokee review

The polarising front end is gone, but the same two engines remain. The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is 'same same but different'. It still has the chops, though, to appeal to buyers in the medium SUV segment. See the full article here.  ...

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...

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...

2019 Jeep Wrangler handed devastating 1 Star Euro NCAP result

The all-new 2019 Jeep Wrangler has been given a stinging one-star safety rating in the latest round of assessments from independent body, Euro NCAP. The fourth-generation JL Wrangler, revealed earlier this year, was already out of the running for a five-star rating due to its lack of autonomous emergency braking at launch...

New Alfa Romeo crossover to be based on Jeep Compass

Fiat Chrysler (FCA) has confirmed it'll spend over €5 billion ($7.7 billion) on new products and drivetrains to be produced at its Italian factories. The automaker met with union officials last week to outline its updated production plans for the next three years, which it hopes will return the company's Italian factories to full employment...

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (4x4) review

It's not the newest car on the market, and it's not the most advanced, but the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited is still a great value-packed SUV that can be bought for almost next to nothing on the second-hand market. Okay, so we didn’t buy this Jeep second-hand. My parents bought it brand new on our first trip back to Canberra, not long after we moved interstate...

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland (4x4) review

I bought my Jeep Grand Cherokee because it looked different to most 4x4s on the road and it had great style, comfort and driveability. I like the ease of operating the vehicle, particularly when on an open road using the adaptive cruise control, and the ride is excellent. However, my list of dislikes now outweighs the reasons I purchased the vehicle...

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary (4x4) review

An impressive, reliable car held back by its reputation for customer service. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the sort of car that commands a presence on the road. Its aggressive looks, unashamed size and its reputation for comfort make it an attractive option for people in the market for a large SUV...

2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport (4x4) review

We were cutting back our vehicles from two to one, and were looking for a capable 4WD that was big enough to house our growing family, comfortable enough to drive every day, and be cheap to modify/fix if something went wrong. I like the rugged look of the vehicle and how it keeps its roots from the original Jeep...
