  • 2015 Jeep Renegade, 2014 Geneva Motor Show

    The 2015 Jeep Renegade, a subcompact crossover from Jeep's owner Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, won't go on sale for a few more months--although it's now in dealerships in Europe. The littlest Jeep will add incremental sales in North America, although its main markets are likely to be Asia and Europe. But while it shares its underpinnings with the Fiat 500X crossover utility that will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show this week, the two vehicles are expected to appeal to different buyer groups.

    Jeep has only recently nailed its colors to the diesel mast, but already the famous off-road arm of Chrysler is looking to other propulsion technologies--namely hybrid vehicles. Executives at the company have called the move to electrification "inevitable", according to Drive--but they're also concerned by the reliability of such systems in an off-road environment, an arena in which many Jeep owners are still interested. Jeep's interest in hybrid models isn't difficult to understand. Steve Bartoli, Chrysler's Asia-Pacific product planning manager, told Drive that Jeep sees "a lot of...

  • 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee  -  2013 Detroit Auto Show

    The Jeep Grand Cherokee isn't usually what people think of when you say "green car," but the new diesel version that's coming for 2014 moves it somewhat closer to that category. Unveiled first thing Monday morning, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel is part of an updated 2014 lineup for the very successful crossover utility vehicle. Its turbodiesel engine, the first diesel fitted to any Jeep in five years, is already fitted to Grand Cherokees sold in Europe.
