Sometimes in life you cannot just play it safe, sometimes you have to take a little gamble and hope that it pays off. For example, you could send the guy that really doesn't like Jeeps to a Jeep event and hope that he doesn't embarrass your company at the event and come home with an article that spouts nothing good about an important vehicle for t
As we’d expect from any “real” Jeep, the all-new Renegade was designed and engineered in the good old U.S. of A. But ssshhh, it’s actually built on a global Fiat platform, by Fiat, in Italy. I literally burst out laughing when a gentleman in a brand-new Jeep Cherokee pulled up beside me, rolled his window down and advised me that my Renegade is n
The 2017 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk is a machine built to tackle terrain that’d leave a comparable Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, or Chevrolet Traxx with a bashed-in oil pan, and an owner scouring eBay for replacement bumpers. It may look cute and playful, but it’s built to occupy nothing less than a top-of-class position when it comes to small-SUV capabil
The colour on the little Jeeplet you see before you is called Jungle Green. It’s a great-looking, non-metallic shade that seems most appropriate on a vehicle whose brand has a history of go-anywhere, do-anything ruggedness. If you’ve got to drive through a jungle, a Jeep is one of very few vehicles you’d want to do it in.
The only jungle this
I remember one of the earlier Renegades from which this latest Jeep product (it beat the new Cherokee to dealers by a year) gets its name; and it should be said that it’s nothing like this. I remember it as a wide-bodied, fat-tired version of the YJ Wrangler. There was a version before that, too, and it was also nothing like this.
I found m
Over the past decade the SUV and now CUV has both grown in size and popularity, but with the advent of higher fuel prices (until just recently) and environmental concerns consumers have been eyeing smaller and more fuel efficient vehicles. But these same consumers like the upright and high seating position of the CUV that offers them a better view
Jeep has just announced details for the newly refreshed Renegade. The company's smallest model gets some slight styling changes but a brand-new engine and gearbox on top trims.
It's one of those unusual automotive trim quirks that sees the up-level engine actually offer less horsepower than the entry-level option, that one being the 2.4L four tha
Jeep has taken the wraps off of a refreshed Renegade at the Torino Motor Show.
It seems like a strange place to reveal an update to Jeep's smallest model, but the Turin show is the home auto show for the Renegade, which is built in Melfi, Italy. The new model was shown in Turin's Valentino park, the country's first public garden and home to seve
Easy to say but hard to spell, Qashqai (pronounced cash-kye) is a word Nissan Canada hopes will be rolling off the tongues of compact crossover buyers come springtime. Arriving to duke it out with the likes of the Honda HR-V , Jeep Renegade and Chevy Trax , the 2017 Nissan Qashqai comes with quite the resume – it’s been the runaway segment lead
Turbocharger lag is a characteristic of turbocharged engines, experienced as a split-second delay between a good poke on the throttle, and the arrival of the requested surge of thrust.
Soul Turbo slathers an extra dose of performance sauce over an already-appealing package.
A turbocharger is an air compressor driven by the engine’s exha
The introduction of a new (sub)compact SUV has become like Donald Trump’s scandals: just when you thought you’d seen them all, there’s yet another feeding the news cycle. After years of selling on other continents, the newish Ford EcoSport (pronounced “echo” not “ee-koh”) has been tinkered with slightly and finally coming to North America. The firs
The subcompact crossover SUV segment is the fastest-growing automotive segment with consumers practically climbing over themselves to snatch them. The manufacturers, of course, are only too happy to fulfill those requests with new models popping up like mushrooms every year.
If you don’t like the looks of the Kona, well you’re probably not co
On a recent procrastination-fueled trip through the interwebz (or was it the facebookz?), I came across a video of a couple of rappers listening to a freestyle track they’d laid decades prior, when their careers were in their infancy.
I mean, just look at it! It’s completely turned the brand on its head!
Part of the video had a graffiti
The all-new Jeep Compass will be unveiled later today at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and we've got the photos and details of the new compact CUV for you. After lacklustre sales and reviews of the outgoing model, Jeep is hoping that the completely redesigned crossover will point in the right direction this time.
The new Compass rides on the same p
At around thirty grand, Buick’s top-trim Encore looks like a really good value. The problem is, this 2018 Buick Encore Premium isn’t around thirty-grand. With the options and $1,795 destination charge added in, this Buick is over $40,000.
The interior measures up against the best in class for quality, design, and features, but it’s driving
