Field Test: The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Quite frankly, it’s hard to find something that the Jeep Grand Cherokee can’t do. The same SUV that’s equally comfortable living its entire life shuttling kids back and forth to school is available as a 470-horsepower, fire-breathing track monster, and a true 4WD capable of tackling some of the most advanced trails. Its breadth of capability is simply unlike anything I’ve seen from Jeep in the past—and we haven’t even started talking about the Trailhawk.

The Trailhawk, which in addition to its more aggressive styling elements, comes standard with a myriad of technical off-road packages, skid plates, all-terrain tires, and even rock sliders. All of this combines to create a vehicle so capable in a huge variety of situations that it’s well…spooky. With a good driver, the Trailhawk is not only capable of traversing the Rubicon Trail, but also getting you to the trailhead from across the continent in complete comfort. This isn’t something exclusive to the Trailhawk, as quite a few modern vehicles including Jeep’s Wrangler Rubicon are capable of this, but I’ve yet to a experience a complete package as refined as this on many different levels.

The word “spooky” consistently began to appear during our testing; usually preceded by “wow, I need to slow down” and “I thought I was going 55″.

2014 Grand Cherokee: best performing Jeep SRT

2014 Grand Cherokee
Should you happen to be looking for a Jeep that’s capable of doing more than climb hills and crawl over rocks at slow speeds, how about one that can rip around a race track at high speed with surprising control, agility and stability? The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is just such a beast.

Okay, perhaps “beast” is not really a proper or appropriate term for a rapid transit vehicle that displays a new level of luxury and performance not experienced before in a Jeep. This, my friends, is no ordinary Jeep. It is totally at home on a rural country road, on a freeway, or more especially, on what may well be the premiere race track in the country today — the new Circuit of the Americas raceway not far from Austin’s airport in Texas Hill Country.

The highly technical and challenging track is an ideal site for Formula One racing at its finest. COTA is 3.4 miles from start to finish, with 20 turns (11 left and 9 right) and with several elevation changes. Awesome and incredible are words that come to mind in describing the driving experience that the track serves up.

Chrysler Sales Up Five Percent In March 2013

2013 Jeep Compass
Following in the footsteps of February’s four-percent sales increase, Chrysler announced today that its U.S. volumes in March 2013 increased five percent year-over-year, totaling 171,606 units. Chrysler’s happy to boast about March being its 36th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains, but more importantly, its first-quarter sales in 2013 are up eight percent compared to the same period in 2012.

What model lines saw the biggest swings in March?

Dodge Challenger:
People are apparently still clamoring for Mopar muscle, as Challenger sales increased a whopping 42 percent year-to-year, totaling 6132 units. This is the fourth consecutive month where Challenger volumes grew by 20 percent or more, and the best monthly sales figure for the model since its re-introduction in 2008. Perhaps the $2000 cash incentive on 2013 Challengers offered in March helped spur this growth.

Jeep Compass: Jeep purists may loathe the thing, but it seems small crossover shoppers actually like the C-segment Compass. Sales grew 28 percent in March, amounting to 5111 units. Jeep says that volume was constrained by the switch over to the 2014 Compass, which boasts a number of small refinements and the adoption of a proper six-speed automatic transaxle.

Ram Pickups: Chrysler also says the launch of the updated 2013 Ram 1500 and 2013 Ram Heavy Duty models negatively impacted volumes in the first quarter, but it didn’t seem to affect Ram pickup sales in March. 33,831 units were sold last month, marking a 25 percent year-to-year increase, and an increase of 10,542 trucks over February 2013.

My Jeep obsession: When to stop being frugal

brown jeep wrangler with top down and brown dog in the front seatHere’s the thing: I have wanted a Jeep Wrangler since I was 16 years old.

That’s when one of my soccer teammates got a new one for her birthday. My experience was different.

When I turned 17, my mom handed me the spare key to her old Dodge Caravan to say I could use it when she wasn’t ferrying around my siblings.

Even after I bought a sensible, affordable Honda Civic after college, the idea of a Wrangler has been stuck in my craw.

I’ve priced them hundreds of times — new ones, used ones, certified preowned ones.

I’ve scoured Craigslist and car websites, dreaming of driving one down to the Jersey Shore — an area about which I have written two books — wind in my hair as I cruised to the beach in the ultimate beach car.

But I told myself I couldn’t buy a Jeep. It’s not a sensible car.

My Civic was fine, and when it wasn’t fine, I’d just buy another two-door sedan because that’s the sensible, financially correct thing to do.

Well, screw that.

I’m a saver. I put away more than half of my income toward retirement and emergency savings.

I bought a house that costs much less than what I can afford. I even appreciate having a smaller dog because she doesn’t eat as much as a big dog would.

But as I looked at my friend’s 1999 tan, manual Jeep Wrangler Sport, I realized frugality should not be the rule for every part of our lives.

I have wanted this car since before I could drive.
