Update: EcoDiesel Engine Confirmed - First Look : 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL in Heavy Camouflage
Corey Simone News Editor, Four Wheeler Network

11:15 EST 5/3/16 Update

The exciting news for the next generation Jeep Wrangler just keeps on coming. We have confirmed that the JL platform Wrangler will be available with a 3.0L EcoDiesel engine. It has been rumored for some time that the United States would finally get a diesel powered Wrangler that fans had been wanting for years. Power numbers haven't been confirmed but if they are anything close to the Ram 1500, hold on tight. Aside from having enough torque to punish tires, the mileage from this redesigned and lighter Jeep should be well over 30 MPG.

Not only will you be able to get a diesel powered Jeep, but a diesel powered Jeep Wrangler truck, how freaking awesome is that! We will keep you updated with any more developments on the upcoming Jeep as soon as they are available.


We've known for sometime that the next-generation Jeep Wrangler is coming, but we haven't be able to get many details from Jeep about how the 2018 Wrangler JL might look. Well, we just got our hands on photos of a four-door 2018 Wrangler testing in heavy covering just outside of Auburn Hills, Michigan.

While it may look very similar to the outgoing JK Wrangler, there have been several changes that aren't hard to miss. The front end is significantly longer than the outgoing Wrangler, and the windshield appears to have more rearward lean for aerodynamics. The biggest change we can see even under heavy wrapping is the bulging front fenders, which gives the front end a much wider appearance.

Regardless of how well the appearance of the JL is taken, the good news is it will still have solid axles front and rear, which means the IFS rumors can end. While no technical specs have emerged from Jeep regarding the JL, we do know that the Pentastar V-6 will be the main engine for the chassis and a diesel powerplant will also be available in North America.

We know Jeep has been making changes to save weight to continue to meet fuel economy standards and has to contend with ever increasing safety regulations. That said, despite these changes, Jeep says that the off-road prowess of the Wrangler will not suffer but will, in fact, be better.

We're going to have to wait a little while longer to see the JL in the buff, but as soon as we do, we'll let you see it as well. The best part of this new Jeep platform is still to come: the Wrangler based pickup. Stay tuned to fourwheeler.com for all the breaking Jeep news.

New Chrysler Pacifica minivans hit the road to dealerships


2017 Chrysler Pacifica Dealer Drive Away

Motorists driving on I-75 near The Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan likely did a double-take - or even a 200-take - as hundreds of brand new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivans took part in a "drive away" program Wednesday, delivering the ultimate family vehicle to dealerships throughout the Great Lakes region.

The parade of minivans to dealerships in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky was the largest ever "drive away" event by FCA US, and provided an opportunity for a number of dealers and their staff to learn more about the highly anticipated new vehicle.

Following the presentation inside the arena, dealers headed out to the parking lot where rows upon rows of new Pacificas awaited their arrival and an eventual cruise back to their dealerships.

Kevin Vanatta, owner of Newberry Motors, is one of those dealers who received his first Pacifica for his dealership in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

"I am just so excited to get out there and show it to customers," said Vanatta, who believes the redesigned minivan will lead customers "to take another look at a minivan." "I've been selling them since 1984, and wow, what a change."

For the Pacifica, Chrysler went back to the drawing board and redesigned the minivan from the ground up to make it more stylish, lighter and fuel efficient. The new minivan was first revealed at the North American International Auto Show in January and went into production at the Windsor Assembly Plant on Feb. 29.

Jeff Laethem, president of Ray Laethem Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, appreciates the refinements made to the vehicle and its "quiet" interior.

"It's the first thing you notice, it's just silent inside," said Laethem. "It feels like a vehicle that is radically more expensive than it actually costs. It is one of the most refined vehicles I have ever driven."

Dealers are reporting that between the auto show reveal, media reviews of the minivan and new television ads featuring Jim Gaffigan and Seth Meyers, a buzz has been created among customers for the new Pacifica and they are receiving a number of phone calls and online inquiries about the new vehicle.

"We are getting a lot of inquiries on it already. Lots of hits online and people are firing questions left and right," said Lincoln Phillip, sales manager at Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep. "We are glad to now be able to answer them and have a car to show them. It's a tremendous opportunity for us."

There are about 1,000 Pacifica minivans in stock around the country, and production is increasing to get additional minivans onto dealer lots.

As vehicles arrive on lots, a number of customers are choosing to visit Chrysler's website to learn more about the minivan. More than 1 million customers have looked at the Pacifica on Chrysler.com.

"We are really excited about the consumer response to the campaign," said Bruce Velisek, Chrysler brand director. "Once we get them in stock and consumers see them on the lots, we think it will drive even more interest."

FCA Canada: Bolder and More Athletic Inside and Out: New 2017 Chrysler 300S Sport Appearance Packages

  • New Exterior and Interior Sport Appearance Packages provide even more athletic attitude to the blacked-out 2017 Chrysler 300S model
  • More aggressive front and rear fascias, unique LED fog lamps, plus sculpted side sills and deck-lid spoiler are included with the Exterior Sport Appearance Package
  • New for 2017, the Interior Sport Appearance Package adds premium perforated leather performance seats with high-bolstered contours in suede, along with new discretely appointed interior accents and materials
  • New Ceramic Grey exterior paint provides the 300S with a "straight shade" hue for a truly avant-garde look
  • Ordering for the 2017 Chrysler 300S with new Sport Appearance Packages will start in August 
March 23, 2016 , Windsor, Ontario - For 2017, the Chrysler brand is updating its bold and blacked-out Chrysler 300S model with even more athletic and aggressive styling appointments thanks to new Exterior and Interior Sport Appearance Packages, plus updated colour and materials to make this flagship 300 model the most enthusiast-focused ever.

"The 300S was born to be the Chrysler enthusiasts' choice, and with two all-new sport appearance packages that take the model's athletic styling and appointments further, plus an available HEMI V-8 engine with paddle-shifting eight-speed automatic and performance suspension, the new 2017 Chrysler 300S re-excites the passion of what owning a North-American flagship sedan is about," said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands - Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA - North America.

The 2017 Chrysler 300S with new Exterior and Interior Sport Appearance Packages will debut at the 2016 New York International Auto Show and be available at Chrysler dealerships nationwide for ordering this August.

New Exterior Sport Appearance Package provides Chrysler 300S with even bolder styling
Making the Chrysler 300S model's commanding presence even more prominent, enthusiasts can choose the new Exterior Sport Appearance Package. At the front, a more aggressively styled fascia with larger air intakes and integrated LED fog lamps highlights the 300S model's world-class handling and levels of technology. Nestled below the blacked-out headlamps and Gloss Black dimensional textured grille is a larger Mobius strip in Gloss Black, which further emphasizes the flagship sedan's road-holding width, while tying in the brand's styling DNA. The Chrysler 300S model's signature proportions take on an even sportier aesthetic as 20-inch (19-inch with AWD) wheels flank the new package's sculpted side sills. At the rear, Chrysler 300S model's new Exterior Sport Appearance Package adds a deck-lid spoiler to complement the dual exhausts and further the sedan's athletic appearance. 

Interior Sport Appearance Package upgrades 300S
New for 2017, the Interior Sport Appearance Package takes the Chrysler 300S model's sport-contoured leather seating and upgrades it for more cradling and comfort. New premium perforated leather-faced performance seats with high-bolstered contours in suede provide front seat passengers with more lateral support during spirited driving. In addition, these front performance seats are heated and ventilated - adding to the flagship sedan's already lengthy list of convenience features.

Updated 300S colour and material selection for a truly avant-garde look
The Chrysler brand's product design office (PDO) team continues to build on the brand's leadership position in expressive and industrious exterior and interior selections by integrating colours and materials that were inspired outside of the automotive industry, including fashion, architecture and technology, and even in the design office's backyard - the Motor City.

In keeping with the Chrysler brand design team's use of unique finishes, the 2017 Chrysler 300S exudes an athletic-luxury interior with new Piano Black interior trim appointments on the instrument panel, door panel and instrument cluster bezels. New Light Grey Diesel coloured accent stitching expressively highlights the Chrysler 300S model's craftsmanship on door and centre console armrests, as well as the leather-wrapped sport seats, or on the new performance seats as part of the new Interior Sport Appearance Package.

New Ceramic Grey exterior paint provides the 300S with a "straight shade" hue for a truly industrial-tough look. Other 300S colours include Bright White, Gloss Black, Granite Crystal Metallic, Billet Metallic, Maximum Steel Metallic, Jazz Blue Pearl, Ivory Tri-coat Pearl and Redline Tri-coat Pearl.

Sport mode, plus an available 363 horsepower 5.7-litre HEMI® V8 engine
The 300S is the most dynamically capable and driver-focused Chrysler 300 model. Sport mode instantly transforms the Chrysler 300S model's performance and personality. By engaging Sport mode, drivers can reduce shift times from approximately 400 milliseconds to 250 milliseconds, increase engine and throttle responsiveness, plus firm up the steering feel of the electric power steering (EPS) system. For even greater V6 performance, the Chrysler 300S model increases the standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine's output to 300 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque, plus adds a unique sport-tuned dual exhaust system with a more distinctive sound. For customers who want more performance, the Chrysler 300S can be had with a 363-horsepower 5.7-litre HEMI V-8 engine with four-cylinder mode FuelSaver Multi-Displacement System (MDS) technology.   
 
The Chrysler 300S model's chassis features a sport-tuned suspension with increased damping to make sure the flagship sedan's power and precision connects the driver to the road. For drivers who want more handling capability, a performance-tuned suspension with increased spring rates, performance-tuned steering and bushings, larger sway bars (with V8 engine) and performance tires are also available on rear-wheel drive Chrysler 300S models.    
 
Segment's most innovative all-wheel-drive (AWD) system
For customers who want the best of Detroit-born style and even more all-weather performance, the Chrysler 300S AWD model includes an advanced AWD system with a segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle disconnect that seamlessly transitions from the outstanding performance and handling of rear-wheel drive to the all-weather traction of all-wheel drive. The advanced technology can deliver power to all four wheels when necessary, and automatically adjust back to two-wheel drive to maximize fuel economy.

The Chrysler 300S AWD pairs the 300 horsepower 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine with the state-of-the-art TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission and the segment's most innovative AWD system for fuel economy as efficient as 8.6 L/100 km (33 mpg) on the highway (based on 2016 EnerGuide fuel consumption ratings). And for driving enthusiasts, Sport mode turns AWD "on" (if off) and enables the 300S to deliver rear-biased torque for improved dynamics.

New 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
The Jeep brand introduced the "Trailhawk" name on the Grand Cherokee concept vehicle that first appeared at the 2012 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah.
