Jeep offers buyers a legendary 4x4 lineup


Every automaker offers an SUV or a 4x4 truck or an all-wheel drive car.

But only one offers rugged 4x4 drive in everything it builds.

That is the reason Jeep – all of Jeep – is the on-road, off-road legend. So when visiting Tyson Motors buyers will find one-stop shopping for true all-road performance. Ranging from small to large, base to luxury, Jeep offers it all!

The 2016 Renegade is Jeep's first entry into the small utility segment. Renegade is available in 4x2 and 4x4 drive setups. Engines include a 160-horsepower turbocharged I-4 and a 180-hp 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark I-4, with six-speed manual or impressive nine-speed automatic gearboxes.

The 2-plus-3 passenger cabin is termed "Tek-Tonic," with accents and colors drawn from extreme sports equipment. Included are a fold-forward front-passenger seat and removable, reversible and height-adjustable cargo floor panel.

Most "traditional" among Jeeps is the Wrangler, the lineup offers a huge selection of trims and models from the "base" Sport to the rugged Rubicon Hard Rock edition. All Wranglers are 4x4 and powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that delivers an impressive 285 hp. A variety of soft and hard tops, and Jeep still has its legendary "signatures" – round headlights, seven-slot grille, removable top and fold-down front windshield. Also features rugged body-on-frame construction, and solid front and rear axles. Wrangler has redesigned seats that are better contoured and have larger bolsters, a standard eight-speaker audio system and improved soundbar. Unlimited offers the huge advantage of four doors in a trail-rated Wrangler.

Jeep's mid-size sport-utility is the five-passenger Cherokee, for 2016 offering standard engine stop-start technology and segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission. Choices include three 4x4 systems. Offering the best-in-class V-6 towing capability of 4,500 pounds, and Selec-Terrain has up to five selectable modes for the best 4x4 performance with different road and weather conditions.
