Will a Jeep Grand Chero­kee ca­pa­ble of a lot of self-driv­ing feats be avail­able in 2020? We’re also won­der­ing about the like­li­hood of a Jeep Grand Wagoneer Hell­cat. We’re go­ing to let Craigslist trans­late this for-sale post be­cause we think it says what we’re all think­ing about an ’84 DJ-5M postal Jeep done up Star Wars – style: “This old Jeep de­liv­ered the mail for the U.S. not too long ago. Now it’s de­liv­er­ing pho­ton beams to the Rebels while si­mul­ta­ne­ously de­liv­er­ing smiles to the faces of chil­dren. Rolls, starts, runs like crap. Bring a TRAILOR [sic]. Burns and leaks oil, leaks a lit­tle gas from fuel filler neck, orig­i­nal carb.”

The Ital­ian Cara­binieri Corps, which is both po­lice force and armed force, has added a Jeep Wran­gler to its fleet. We’re gonna go with Google Trans­late’s trans­la­tion of their In­sta­gram post about it (@ar­made­icara­binieri) be­cause we think it says what we all think about Wran­glers: “The new #jeep #wran­gler of the #cara­binieri, de­liv­ered to the weapon of #fca on loan for free use. Equipped with a #tur­bod­iesel 2.8 CRD engine, it is able to op­er­ate even on the most in­ac­ces­si­ble ter­rains, such as sand.” SEMA gave the auto-shop stu­dents at the Early Col­lege Op­por­tu­ni­ties Ap­plied Science Mag­net School (ECO) in Santa Fe, New Mex­ico, a ’95 Jeep Wran­gler to build with do­nated af­ter­mar­ket parts; then they sell it, with the pro­ceeds go­ing right back into the pro­gram for the 2018-2019 school year. “Stu­dents will learn many real-world auto tech skills and the pro­ject will pro­mote the in­ter­est and knowl­edge of young peo­ple in the ac­ces­soriza­tion, cus­tomiza­tion, build­ing and/or up­grade of mo­tor ve­hi­cles us­ing af­ter­mar­ket auto parts,” the school said at the start of the pro­ject. Well, the Jeep sold—the pro­ject raised $56,175 for the new school year. J.D. Power 2018 U.S. Au­to­mo­tive Per­for­mance, Ex­e­cu­tion and Lay­out (APEAL) Study: The Jeep brand man­aged to show big im­prove­ments over 2017 in a study about “own­ers’ emo­tional at­tach­ment and level of ex­cite­ment across 77 at­tributes, rang­ing from the power they feel when they step on the gas to the sense of com­fort and lux­ury they feel when climb­ing into the driver’s seat.”
