First Look at the New 2018 Jeep Wrangler

For decades, the Jeep Wrangler has been an iconic vehicle option that promises to put the fun in driving. Its classic Jeep off-roading capabilities combined with its timeless design and the removable top options make the Wrangler the number one pick for those looking to get closer to nature. The newest upcoming model, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, promises some compelling updates in addition to the traditional SUV America has grown to love.

2017 Jeep Wrangler - Ottawa, IL

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler looks to expand on the already classic 2017 Wrangler model pictured above.

 

For one thing, spy shots of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler seem to show that this new version will feature multiple roof options. The four-door Wrangler is said to be a three-piece hard top, where the roof panels are removable in separate chunks for versatile, open-air driving. Another rumor suggests that the 2018 Wrangler will offer a hybrid version. Jeep also seems to be looking into equipping the newest Wranglers with more autonomous features to aide in safety, plus even better handling and off-roading capabilities. The future of Jeep also promises a pickup version of the Wrangler, but this unique option won’t hit the market for another couple of years.

Even without that pickup version available, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler sure sounds like an exciting update to a favorite classic. We look forward to having some in stock at Sierra CDJR and offering you one of the first test drives in this new SUV.

Jeep is First American Automaker to Return to the Tokyo Motor Show

Jeep will be the first American automaker to return to the Tokyo Motor Show after an eight year absence. Though foreign-brand car sales in Japan have declined about six percent in the first four months of this year, Jeep sales were up 21 percent over the same period.

That would explain why Jeep is returning to the Tokyo Motor Show even when fellow Detroit automakers such as Ford, General Motors, and even Chrysler are not. The Big Three had originally walked away from the show after the 2007 event because of the global economic crisis and haven’t come back since.

But now Jeep is the best-selling American brand in Japan. It will be part of an eight-vehicle, four-brand showcase overseen by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Japan. Joining it will be cars from Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Abarth, as well as 13 other foreign makes.

Sierra Motors Chrysler is happy to once more be looking forward to the Tokyo Motor Show!

FCA Foundation Donation Goes to United Way of Rock River Valley

After a wave of tornadoes devastated Boone, DeKalb, Lee, Ogle, and Winnebego counties, the FCA Foundation has stepped up and donated $25,000 to the United Way of Rock River Valley.

Natural disasters that hit so close to home are never expected, and it’s heartwarming to have major companies like FCA pitch in to help out. The generous donation will go directly into the Northern Illinois Disaster Relief Fund in order to help families that were affected by the tornadoes by providing temporary house.

Dominic Ventral, Plant Manager of the Belvedere Assembly Plant in Boone County said, “We recognize that natural disasters can have overwhelming social and economic impact on both individuals and communities. We hope by joining forces with our friends and neighbors we can help families get back on their feet and into their homes quickly.”

If you want to help out the families affected so close to us, please visit www.unitedwayrrv.org/help15 to donate.
