Jeep News & Rumors
Jeep decided to get into the web series business and did so with Jeep Wrangler Celebrity Customs. The series had “celebrities” (quotes intentional; you’ll at least know A-Rod) join customizers, including Jeep Performance Parts, to build up some ’18 JLs. A winner was picked, and that person took home something called the Wrangler Golden Grille Award. You can watch the series at jeep.com/celebrity-customs.
Further proof that the new Wrangler is getting a diesel? The mysterious order code 26, which could very well equal a ’19 JL with a 3.0L V-6 diesel and manual transmission.
The Wrangler is in such high demand that the Toledo Assembly Complex in Ohio will have to add a third production shift. That could mean hundreds of jobs created. AutoPacific named winners in its 2018 Ideal Vehicle Awards, which determined winners based only on owner feedback on vehicles “that best meet owners’ expectations for the product.” The Jeep Grand Cherokee won the midsize SUV category.
