Jeep has been in existence since 1940 when the first ever model was released. In 2018, the company recorded its best sales year on record having sold a total of 973,227 models. Their new Jeep JL is proof of why people continue to support the company. It’s a stunning hybrid of old and new. Jeep kept the characteristic boxed look that people have come to love while adding new technologies that make your driving experience that much better.
Introducing the New Jeep JL
The new Jeep JL is largely made of lightweight aluminum. Gone are the days when doors, fenders, and panels were designed from steel. The car boasts an improved fuel economy thanks to the 8-speed automatic transmission that enables a seamless gear change.
In order to cater to its growing customer base, the Jeep JL comes with an electronic steering system. This is an upgrade from the former hydraulic unit. For your entertainment, you’ll have Fiat’s Chrysler Automobile Uconnect infotainment system at your disposal. This system is entirely compatible with Android Auto and Apple Car Play. Play and display all your music from the 8.4” touch screen that delivers crystal clear HD viewing.
The car is a lot safer thanks to features such as the back-up view that allows you to more accurately gauge the distance between the Jeep and any obstructions.
Engine-wise nothing much has changed, the Jeep JL comes with the characteristic 3.6 Liter Pentastar V6 engine. What’s new though is the upgrade in horsepower to 280, and the torque which has gone up to 265 pound-feet.
