Jeep a 4×4 adventure and fuel efficiency

There’s nothing quite like Jeep in the market. Even as the SUV has been developed into the fast, great-handling and luxurious segment of the vehicle market, the basic Jeep models have remained unchanged. What is it about Jeeps that have captured the imagination of millions of people over the decades?

The short answer is that Jeep was born during wartime. In 1941 everyone knew that the United States would be pulled into World War 2. The only question was when. This meant that the United States military needed a new kind of vehicle to fight the war. This resulted in them requesting automakers to develop and propose a lightweight “small truck” designed to carry four men or stretchers with some cargo.

This gave rise to companies such as Ford, Willy’s and American Bantam, all competing for the contract to produce the new vehicle. Willy’s won the contract and the hardy and capable Jeep produced by Willy’s won the admiration from U.S. servicemen.

When the war ended, the Willy’s decided to keep making Jeeps. The CJ name stands for “Civilian Jeep”. However, they were practically identical to the military Jeeps that soldiers who returned already knew how to drive. As you can see, the appeal of owning a vehicle hardy enough for the U.S military is enough to create quite a legacy for Jeep.

All models of Jeep since have been evolutions rather than revolutions. Modern Jeeps are still direct descendants of the wartime model. Jeep has 6 models available to choose from today – the Wrangler, Compass, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Renegade, and the All-New Gladiator. These deliver 17/25, 23/32, 19/26, 22/31 and 22/30 mpg in the city and on the highway respectively. Numbers for the upcoming Gladiator have yet to surface.

If you’d like to know more about Jeep, head on over to the nearest showroom. The sales representative assigned to you will be happy to clarify all your doubts.

GMC Line up 2019
GMC continues to soar new heights and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down with their 2019 lineup. GMC relies mostly on trucks as well as utility vehicles to cement their place in the market. Let’s take a look at their exciting 2019 lineup.

  1. Sierra 1500 – The 2019 Sierra 1500 is the fourth generation Sierra in the Sierra family. It has been restyled and made larger in all directions. Despite being larger than its predecessor, it’s 360 pounds lighter. The full-size pickup truck gets a new headlight, fog light, bumper design, a taller hood, and a larger grille. The interior of the truck has also been restyled and enlarged. GMC has stuffed plenty of features into the Sierra 1500 such as a lane departure warning, a blind-spot monitor, a touch screen display, and many more.
  2. Terrain – The Terrain is a stylish, well-built crossover SUV with a surprisingly quiet and comfortable drive. It also sports excellent driving dynamics. In fact, the Terrain offers more passenger space than many of its competitors. You can get the Terrain with three different turbocharged four-cylinder engines. You can get a standard 1.5L four-cylinder which churns out 170 horsepower and 203lb-ft of torque. You can also go a step further and get a powerful 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine. Both engines are mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox. The largest petrol engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds, which is excellent for a crossover.
    If you’d like to know even more about GMC’s excellent lineup for 2019, make your way over to a GMC dealership. The sales representative assigned to you will be happy to tell you anything you’d like to know about the current year’s lineup of GMC-badged vehicles.
