Trailhawk Wears Trail-rated Badge With Pride

Owners of the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk can testify to the little SUV’s ability to take on the toughest trails, whether they involve rocks and crevices or water crossings. By earning the Trail-rated badge, the Renegade Trailhawk has proven its ability to provide traction, maneuverability, articulation, ground clearance and clear streams without causing the driver or passengers concern. The Renegade Trailhawk also has Best-in-Class 4×4 ability with Jeep Active Drive Low. This transmission is only available in the Trailhawk, providing the driver to crawl over really tough terrain without having a foot on the accelerator. Like other Jeep 4×4 systems, Active Drive Low switches between four-wheel and two-wheel drive as needed to provide the maximum fuel efficiency. Test drive the Jeep Renegade today at Chapman Jeep Las Vegas.

Driver Mode Dial Increases Flexibility

Each Jeep Renegade 4×4 offers a Selec-Terrain dial to help give you the maximum control for different kinds of road, or non-road, conditions. Auto gives the Jeep the flexibility to change traction settings as needed. Drivers can select Snow, Sand or Mud as necessary to get the best performance. The Renegade Trailhawk model has a Rock setting for those people who like to put their little Jeep to the ultimate challenge. The Selec-Terrain dial not only provides maximum control for the road conditions, but also delivers maximum fuel efficiency.

Trailhawk Has Additional Features

For the serious off-roader, the Trailhawk is outfitted with skid plates, tow hooks on both the front and back bumpers and a raised height for additional ground clearance. Like all Renegades, the Trailhawk has an impressive 2,000 pound towing capacity, which is more than enough for a pop-up or small travel trailer for those who really like to enjoy the outdoors. The 2.4L Tigershark engine produces 180 horsepower and 175 pound feet of torque, making the Renegade the mighty little off-roader that leaves other vehicles behind.

Design and Suspension Deliver Tough, Superior Ride

Jeep engineers had a challenge to design a suspension system that not only handled tough terrain, but also delivered a comfortable ride on the highway. Head over to Chapman Jeep Las Vegas and take a test drive to see just how comfortable the Renegade feels on the road. With a stiff body structure to absorb energy and selective damping in the front and rear struts, the Renegade absorbs the bumps of the road while having the ability to navigate nature’s toughest trails.

Jamboree Going Strong Since 1953

Ever since off-road enthusiast Mark A. Smith organized the first trek across the Rubicon trail in 1953, the Jeep Jamboree has been a yearly event around which many off-roaders plan a vacation. Along with beautiful scenery and a chance to bond with other Jeep owners, the Jamborees offer a chance to learn off-roading techniques in a safe and familial atmosphere.


Jeep’s Military Legacy Embodied in New Model

The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition honors the patriotic commitment of all service members with special badging and features. Along with the sharp appearance package, Jeep is donating a portion of each sale to the USO to help support active military and veterans who have served their country. Along with Freedom Edition decals on the fenders, passenger rear panel and hood, a special nod is given to “Oscar Mike,” the Military phonetic shorthand for “On the Move.” A front panel badge and seat embroidery display the Oscar Mike logo, a special nod to those who have served. Talk to the folks at Chapman Jeep Las Vegas to see about getting a test drive in a Freedom Edition Wrangler.

This Jeep More Than a Few Decals

Although the markings are cool and pay tribute to the Military, the Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition is much more than a few decals. Granite Crystal 17-inch wheels and tires provide plenty of control in tough road conditions and match the glossy granite crystal grille. This trail-rated Jeep is powered by the 285-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which provides plenty of torque to get you out of the toughest situations. Features like Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control provide just that extra touch of assistance that can mean the difference between a successful trail run and a trip to the body shop.

Jeep’s Come a Long Way in Last 75 Years

Although there’s a clear resemblance between the 2016 Jeep Wrangler and the utility military vehicle that started it all in 1941, there are also a lot of differences. Where comfort was not really in the equation at the start of World War II, the new Wrangler is a tough little trail buster that features the interior and amenities of a luxury car. A leather-wrapped steering wheel puts controls for the infotainment system just a finger’s reach away. Dual climate control helps keep driver and passenger at the right temperature when hearts start beating a little faster at the top of a ridge. Leather-trimmed seats with substantial bolsters serve a dual purpose; they are extremely comfortable while helping to keep your body upright as you maneuver your way through canyons and over boulders.

Trail Rated Proves Off-road Capability

The Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition is Trail Rated, which means it passes a series of tests designed to mimic the toughest trails in the world. Traction, Water Fording, Maneuverability, Articulation and Ground Clearance are the five separate categories that separate a Trail Rated Jeep from the rest of the pack. Swing by Chapman Jeep Las Vegas and see how a Trail Rated Jeep differs from a standard four by four.


One-by-One, Competitors Have Come and Gone

As the unquestioned ruler of the off-road market, the Jeep Wrangler in various incarnations has enjoyed a long record of success as a fun and functional four-by-four. With its rugged suspension, low-end power and nimble agility, the Wrangler is still the vehicle of choice for serious off-roaders who need to get where they are going and then home again. See the complete lineup of Wranglers at Chapman Jeep Las Vegas.

Early Ford Bronco Fell by Wayside

Although the early version of the Ford Bronco started off strong in 1966, Ford decided to abandon the smaller design in favor of a much larger vehicle, which it eventually discontinued. No telling what would have happened if they had stuck with the smaller design, as it is in high demand by enthusiasts today. Restored Broncos from the late 1960s and early 1970s fetch as much as $30,000.

Chevy Blazer Transitioned from Beast to Beauty

When Chevrolet first released the Blazer in 1968, it was a beast that was bigger than both the Bronco and Jeep. It offered air conditioning, automatic transmission and a removable top to quickly become a sales success. Once again, as time went on, the company removed some of the functionality as it went to a smaller size, lack of convertible top and lack of power. The emasculated Blazer finally bit the dust and was replaced with a series of mall-friendly SUVs.

Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

As far as being a true challenger to the Jeep’s off-road abilities, the 1960 FJ40 might have been the most worthy competitor of all. Originally designed for the Korean War, the Toyota was a tank-like vehicle with few creature comforts but plenty of ability crawl over rocks and through stream beds. Like other competitors, Toyota softened the design over time and turned the Land Cruiser into something more at home hauling kids to school than busting through brush or over mountains. Original Land Cruisers are also highly sought for restoration because of their simplicity and ability to get the job done.

Wrangler Remains Undisputed Off-road Champ

Whether you buy a used model or new Wrangler, you’ll be getting a vehicle that has stood the test of time in such rugged country as the Arizona desert and Rubicon trail. Now available with four doors in the Unlimited model, the Wrangler offers plenty of room to take the kids, the dogs or just your camping gear. There are a number of trim levels to choose from at your local dealer, Chapman Jeep Las Vegas.


KBB Honors Best Vehicles in Class

When Kelley Blue Book speaks about the automotive industry, people listen. The popular industry and consumer information website has a staff dedicated to reviewing new vehicles and analyzing what cars are on their way up, and which ones are on the way down. By winning their respective classes on the “5-Year Cost to Own List,” both the Jeep Patriot and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited are definitely making a statement to consumers when it comes to stretching an automotive dollar.

Patriot Makes List for Third Consecutive Year

The Jeep Patriot is an inexpensive SUV that pays attention to value. Named the winner in the compact SUV/crossover category, the Patriot’s low initial price and high resale value help keep it a popular choice among consumers. Fuel economy that reaches as high as 30 miles per gallon and a good dependability record means buyers will spend less every year to keep the vehicle on the road.

The Patriot comes in Sport, Latitude and Limited trim packages designed for someone of every budget. The Sport model comes with cruise control standard, as well as a CD sound system that includes an auxiliary jack. Stepping up to the Latitude adds power heated mirrors, power windows and locks, keyless entry, heated front seats and steering wheel radio controls. Move up to the Limited and you get a larger engine, trip computer, power driver seat and leather upholstery.

Wrangler Unlimited Wins Mid-size SUV/Crossover Title

The 4-door Wrangler Unlimited is such a unique vehicle that it’s difficult to put it in one class. Born from its military roots, the iconic style of the Wrangler Unlimited is enough to convince a large segment of shoppers that it is the vehicle of choice for people who want off-road capability and still be able to cart a family around. The Wrangler is truly an unstoppable beast out on the trail that spells fun to a legion of happy owners. Choose the Rubicon package and few mountain passes will turn you back. Jeep adds 17-inch wheels, 32-inch tires and a heavy-duty front axle to go with a shorter rear-axle ratio, providing more torque when you need it. Front and rear locking differentials, skid plate and rock rails keep you going long after others have abandoned the trail.

Just because the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a terror on rocks, doesn’t mean it is without sophistication. A nine-speaker Alpine stereo provides quality sound, while Bluetooth, USB port and voice controls add luxury to the belly of the beast.

Chapman Jeep Las Vegas has a large selection of Wrangler Unlimiteds in different colors. Stop in for a test drive to see what makes this vehicle truly one-of-a-kind.
