Highlights of the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition

2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition

Suburban Chrysler Jeep of Ann Arbor is pleased to be able to show you the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition. This is the Wrangler that will thrill the hard-core off-roaders, Jeep fans and skeptics. This edition of Rubicon goes beyond the regular Rubicon—it’s tricked out to the max. Here are just a few of the many highlights that will have you zooming up and down Ann Arbor terrain and beyond.

Rock-Track® 4WD System

For serious rock climbing in 4LO, you will be amazed at the legendary Jeep four-wheel drive system that electronically locks differentials and front sway-bar disconnect for perfection in off-road capability. It will make every driver look like a rock warrior.

BF Goodrich® KM2 Tires

The 10th Anniversary Rubicon comes standard with ground-ripping 265/70R17 BFGoodrich®KM2 tires. These assertive tires have a wider footprint that magnetizes the vehicle to the ground. Their aggressive tread pattern can tear up any terrain.

Amped-up Exterior

The Jeep Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition looks like no other Jeep on or off the road. The all-new hood has impressive but functional venting and drainage. The polished face, medium-gloss black wheels and deep-tint windows give off a tough, slightly sinister appearance that lets the road know who is boss.

Flashy Details

Jeeps are not normally known for snazzy accessories and fashion-forward details. That is all over now. This iteration Rubicon lets you be tough and a little racy at the same time. Note the sexy, red front bumpers with fog lamps; removable end caps and winch capability; red front and rear dual tow hooks; and a rear bumper with spare-tire capabilities.

Interior Uptick

The interior looks more like a Euro racecar than a utilitarian, general-purpose vehicle. The black dash and black leather-wrapped steering wheel with hot-looking Quick Silver accents contrast nicely with the heated red leather seats embroidered with the Rubicon 10th Anniversary detail.

An identifying dash plaque with the Rubicon 4×4 tech specs, badged IP grab bar and the new electro chromatic rear-view mirror with LED lamps offer a luxurious touch. Ready to talk more about the Jeep Rubicon? Come on in to Suburban Chrysler Jeep of Ann Arbor.

The engine has been upgraded from a five-speed automatic transmission to a ZF 8HP70 eight-speed transmission. The vehicle also features stability control, four-wheel antilock disc brakes and all-speed traction control.

Stylin’ changes

Jeep has also made some cosmetic improvements to this version of the Cherokee, among them a newly styled liftgate and headlights, a heated steering wheel and new interior leather colors—all of which create a sleek and sporty design.

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT also displays performance data in the cabin, so you can tell how fast you’re accelerating, see braking distances, G-forces, and even half- or quarter-mile race times.

Suburban Chrysler Features New 9-speed Automatic Transmission

Komo_transmission warehouse

Modern car manufacturers are always looking for ways to improve the efficiency of production cars. As gas costs increase, drivers want to know they are getting as much from every gallon as possible. Here at Suburban Chrysler Jeep of Ann Arbor, we’re excited by the announcement from the Chrysler Group that there will be three new models in 2013, all of which will have a new 9-speed transmission.

Buyers here in Michigan will see up to 200,000 cars on sale this year featuring the new performance-beating transmission. The new Jeep Liberty will be the first to go on sale with this new feature, followed by the 200 midsize sedan and the new Dodge Dart. That’s great news for buyers.

The new Jeep Cherokee will debut at the 2013 New York Auto Show, with production sales to follow. The Liberty will switch to a new front-drive platform, like the Fiat 500L. In the Dodge Dart, the new 9-speed transmission will be an option, along with other manual and automatic transmissions.

You can get different things from different car transmissions. With the 9-speed’s shorter, easier shift changes, the whole system uses less fuel, which means that drivers can see a real difference in the car’s fuel consumption. While a 9-speed transmission might seem too much for the average driver, real car lovers or people who want to cover a lot of miles will find this makes a real difference.

You can see these cars on sale later in 2013. If you are psyched about the idea of a 9-speed transmission, come see us at Suburban Chrysler Jeep of Ann Arbor so that we can get you in line for a test drive.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is still the Power Choice

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ann Arbor

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When it comes to mid-size SUVs, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a household name, but the newest introduction to the line heralds a new design and new features to look forward to. Introduced at Detroit’s 2013 International Auto Show, the 2014 Grand Cherokee offers up plenty of reasons you might want to stop by our Jeep dealership for a test drive when it is released later this year.

In 2012, Jeep had one of its brightest years yet, setting a sales record with an improvement of 13 percent over the previous year—and going by what Jeep showed off at the recent International Auto Show, 2013 might be even more of a reason to celebrate.

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is still recognizable as the Jeep many owners know and love, but with a noticeable face lift. Slimmer headlamps sit on a slightly shallower grille, with raised lower headlights and larger LED tail lights. Many of the same trims from last year will be available: Laredo, Limited, Overland and Overland Summit, simply renamed, “Summit”.

One of the biggest updates is the addition of a diesel engine option, in the form of a 3.0 liter EcoDiesel V-6. This optional engine clocks in at 3600 rpm and 240 horsepower. According to Jeep, choosing rear wheel drive will get you an estimated 21 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city with this engine, or 30 mpg highway, with the ability to pull up to 7400 pounds. With four wheel drive, this drops to a slightly more modest 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway with the ability to tug 7200 pounds.

Other engine options include a 3.6 liter Pentastar and a 5.7 liter Hemi V-8, but regardless of which you choose, you’ll be handling a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, offering improved fuel economy and smoother shifts.

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has as many options as ever, with a sleeker new look as well as the latest and greatest technology. Head to Suburban Chrysler Jeep of Ann Arbor for a test drive of the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and see if it could be the mid-size SUV you have been waiting for.
