Default Jeep Rumors or Truth?

<br />
Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackhawkItalian resorts gained the Jeep Renegade as a go-to “999” emergency vehicle during the summer of 2017.

A bunch of Jeep SUVs have been converted to emergency and rescue rigs all over Italy. In fact, in 2016, the Carabinieri Italian police force added the Renegade. In honor of all this, Jeep UK put together this accompanying neato graph of the who/what/where/when of Jeep first responders.

The all-new Jeep Wrangler’s diesel won’t show up until 2019 and that Wrangler will have an option for full-time four-wheel drive and a more robust tie rod and control arms, and new Dana axles?

• Remember when those hackers famously remotely hacked a ’14 Jeep Cherokee and next thing you knew, there was a recall and software upgrade? GM has now hired those hackers as software engineers for its Cruise Automation autonomous arm.

• Kelley Blue Book’s Most Awarded Cars of 2017 and Most Awarded Brands of 2017? Jeep made it, but can you guess on to which list? The Wrangler ranked No. 3 as one of the most lauded vehicles. And it ranked No. 8 as part of the best-brands list. So, the answer is, both lists. Lists:

• Jeep Job Swap is apparently a thing. American polo player, Nic Roldan, did a Freaky Friday job switcheroo with Olympic medalist (and Jeep ambassador), William Fox-Pitt, allowing William to attend a competition . Make sense of it via the video here:

“FCA US LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V., announced today that it has received a certificate of conformity from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and a conditional executive order from the Air Resources Board (ARB) of the State of California, permitting the production and sale of FCA US 2017 model-year light-duty Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with 3.0L diesel engines.

The agencies’ approval was the product of several months of collaboration between FCA US and the EPA and ARB to address the agencies’ concerns with respect to the diesel emissions control technologies employed on earlier model-year versions of these vehicles. The 2017 updates include modified emissions software calibrations, with no required hardware changes, and FCA US expects that the modified calibrations will have no effect on the stated fuel economy or the performance of these vehicles.”

Wondering whether you can afford the new ’18 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, featuring a 6.2L V-8 attached to an eight-speed auto trans, all making for an eye-buggin’ 707 horses and 645 lb-ft of torque, 0-60 of 3.5 seconds, and 11.6-second quarter-mile time, earning it the title—from Jeep—of “most powerful and quickest SUV ever”? The MSRP will start at $85,900; so now decide your answer.
