The Jeep Wrangler Sundancer is painted in a dark brown color called “Chocolate Brown” it’s also has a really nice design with gold detailing, bronze-tinted glass, LED-lights in the bumpers, and 20-inch pale gold alloys. It’s quite a well known fact that Chinese car buyers love to style up their 4×4 vehicles with different “bling-bling” jeep accessories as well as special colors. That is pretty much why Jeep has designed this concept, to jeep the Chinese consumers happy with their fancy looking Jeep.

The largest Auto Show in Northern America has taken place just one week ago. I found some cool Jeep pictures and additional information on this cool Auto Show in Chicago. I must say that Jeep has done a really great job in making the most out of their vehicles in Chicago. Hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.
This is the Jeep Camp Setup, as you can see it purely represents the off road Jeep environment. Looks pretty great.
One of the coolest things about this Auto Show is a special test track where all Jeep fan can test drive a Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Wrangler on a special track, that looks like a ramp and few other obstacles. I don’t remember any other auto shows where visitors are actually allowed to drive a Jeep, and not just to drive it but to actually try it on Jeep special environment. I think it’s a really great work by Jeep.

Welcome to my new post on the best car ever – Jeep. Today we are going to talk about the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Flattop Concept model. Please leave your comments after reading this article to tell me what you think of it.
Jeep Wrangler Flattop made it first debut at Easter Jeep Safari show last year. Jeep Wrangler Flattop has a 3.6L V8 engine and stock suspension. Manufacturers point out that it is the newly updated interior and exterior features what makes the Jeep Wrangler Flattop so great for off-road rides.
One of the top things that you might spot on Jeep Wrangler Flattop is the roof line. As you can see the roof has been brought down for two inches and fitted with a hardtop – not a soft-top.
The hood, rear bumper and front of Jeep Wrangler Flattop was taken from another very well known model – Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The Wrangler Flattop concept also received a few Mopar® parts, including an exhaust and cold air intake.
Inside, the vehicle featured black leather seats with the same copper-colored accents that were featured around the grille. This gave the Jeep Wrangler Flattop concept a more upscale design.
Please come back soon for more information on different Jeep models and Jeep accessories.
Welcome to my new Jeep Review topic! This time I will be reviewing Jeep Wrangler Sport Edition. So fasten your seat belts ladies and gents.
Driving the Sport Edition
Driving Jeep Wrangler Sport Edition will feel just the same as driving any other Wrangler models. You will still have that perfect Jeep touch feeling when driving off-road. You will find that Jeep Wrangler’s steering is vague, suspension is on the harsh side and the cabin isn’t the quietest place in which you’ve ever traveled. But that’s the whole point of driving a Jeep – you can feel and hear everything that is going on.
Jeep Wrangler Sport Edition looks pretty much like all Jeep Wranglers, this particular edition is very similar to Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, so if you have enjoyed that one you will like this one as well.
The new Jeep Wrangler Sport Edition is equipped with a new V6 petrol engine introduced in 2012. Displacing 3.6 liters, this modern twin-cam unit develops up to 209kW of power, with 347Nm to torque. One of the bright sides about this model is the power of acceleration which has increased it performance from zero to 100km/h. This is probably one of the top things that makes this model standout from other Jeep Wranglers.
The price for this Jeep Wrangler Sport edition ranges from $32,500 to $49,000 depending on your collation (£22,000 – £30,000). Please keep in mind that government charges or any other dealer or delivery charges may be included.
So in general I think that the New 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport Edition is a great Jeep to have.
Check out the top reasons for anyone to own a Jeep Wrangler.
The freedom of driving
You will be able to drive places you have never been able to drive before, for example off road land and territories which are unreachable with a standard vehicle.
Stay close with nature
You will be able to take the top and even doors off your Jeep Wrangler and enjoy the wind, the sun or any other nature effects while you are driving.
You will be able to modify your jeep and personalize it as much as you want until you will find that unique view that matches your personality.
Jeep Wrangler Community
You will be able to join a unique Jeep Wrangler community and participate in exciting Wrangler events and off road trips! More people = more fun.
Know your Jeep
You will become a DIY mechanic, as Jeep Wrangler maintenance is quite an enjoyable part and is something that everyone can do or learn.
In summarize the top reasons to buy a Jeep Wrangler I can say that this Jeep model gives you the ability to express yourself, and allows you the freedom to drive anywhere you want to drive. It’s the ultimate scenario for you to go anywhere you want. I have owned 3 Jeeps in total and can’t really express how happy I am.

According to Chinese official notice, Jeep Wrangler model is on High Risk of catching on Fire. Bloomberg.com reports that Chinese government is ordering Jeep models to investigate the Jeep safety. It also recommends Jeep Wrangler model owners to stay away from driving in extreme conditions to a high risk of catching fire. This statement is quite unusual to hear, especially when talking about Jeep, who are well known for their high performance in off road and extreme driving conditions.
There has been no notice on how many vehicles or which particular models are affected. Last time such an issue arise was because of automatic transmission fluid leaks. However in this particular case it still has been unclear what the problem is.
So please keep following our blog and don’t forget to return soon for some more updates on Jeeps and different SUV’s 🙂
