Jeep Cherokee Facelift

The new Jeep Cherokee SUV is not only better looking but more convincing to drive. The updated 2018 Jeep Cherokee mid-size SUV is dramatic as they come! According to Jeep, its predecessor's face was a 'love it or loath it' design and no longer matched the character design of the other Jeep models. As well as redesigning the vehicles characteristics, Jeep also refined its mechanical elements to improve its on-road dynamics. The result is more than just a facelift. The vehicle ...

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk review

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the third most powerful car on sale in Australia. Boasting a ridiculous 527kW and slightly breathtaking 874Nm of torque, nailing 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds. The Trackhawk simply defies the basic premise of physics that suggests a 2.4-tonne anything should lap this well. It stays in a static, balanced pose even at high speeds. Derived from the SRT, the Trackhawk's engine plays host to the Dodge-developed 6.2-litre supercharged Hemi that's know as the Hellcat. All ...

The 2018 Jeep Compass

In Australia, the 2018 Jeep Compass is the lynchpin to the brand’s comeback. The Compass is to be the brand’s weapon in the fight for the smallish SUV market, sitting beneath the genuine mid-sized Cherokee. Unlike other cars in this segment, the Compass has something most modern SUVs don’t – serious off-road chops. As we won’t see the cars before the fourth quarter of 2017, there’s little in the way of confirmed spec information. But so far, we can see ...
