Jeep Lifestyles with the all-new 2018 Wrangler

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

When all hell hits the fan it would be in your best interest to posses the keys to a Jeep, preferably the 2018 Wrangler. The goal is to get away swiftly and discretely in a 4×4 with the versatility to triumph any terrain that leads to salvation. That’s probably what the armed forces thought 75 years ago. As the story goes Willys-Overland’s beat out Bantam and Ford in 1941 as the principle supplier of the U.S. Army’s 1,500 go-anywhere and structurally rigid reconnaissance vehicles. Later the world would come to know this quintessential 4×4 as the Jeep. [Read more…]

Jeep Wrangler Family Life

Jeep-Wrangler-FamiliesBack in 2007 I had the privilege of attending the 4-door Wrangler “Unlimited” launch along the Rubicon Trail in Sierra Nevada with Automotive Rhythms‬.

As the owner of a ’98 Sahara Wrangler (my second Wrangler) during that trip, I thought a 4-door model was an interesting attempt, but took away from the sturdy essence of a Jeep. Furthermore, the ’07 model lacked the creature comforts and refinements befitting an adventurous family. In 2012 while on another Wrangler trip in the Pacific Northeast I, however, became a believer in the 4-door Wrangler as it was a significantly enhanced with the same trail related abilities of the 2-door model with improved “on-road” and interior comfort.

I am now that consumer Jeep talked about during the “Unlimited” intro presentation back in 2007 and love bringing the family along for our Jeep adventures. ‪#‎JeepLife‬ ‪#‎DadLife‬ #AutomotiveRhythms ‪#‎FitFathers‬ ‪#‎RockMonster‬

2014 Jeep Cherokee: All in the Family

2014 Jeep Cherokee TrailhawkI owe it to you, our readers to share the fact that I consider myself a true Jeep guy! Why is this relevant you ask? Quite simply, I have experienced Jeeps on one of the toughest trails in the country, the Rubicon, as well as the rugged outdoors of Oregon and back hills of Virginia.  I’ve been part of the Jeep family with Wranglers and Grand Cherokees since the late 90s and tend to be a bit critical of new Jeep upgrades and refreshes.  As a matter of fact, there have been a couple of models I’ve been less than pleased with particularly in the compact and mid-size categories. So when the SUV ambassador from Detroit created the 2014 Cherokee I couldn’t help but to think, “here we go again.”  Available in four different models, Jeep Cherokee Sport, Cherokee Latitude, Cherokee Limited and the fully off-road capable Trailhawk model, I’m happy to say this time they got it right.
