Hennesey Maximus

Hennesey Maximus, the 1000 HP Jeep Gladiator in the United States

If you like the Jeep Gladiator, a pick-up with considerable capacities, you will love the Hennessey Maximus, totally extreme customization of the model. The pick-ups are the fashion vehicle, and that is reaching many buyers who want an open van that can take them through any terrain no matter how rugged it was. So not only is there a good amount of these types of vehicles in the catalog of the leading manufacturers but also personalization companies work to create models that attract the eyes of buyers. The Maximus designed by Hennessey is one of those extreme pick-ups that makes us want to drive it anyway. It based on the Jeep Gladiator, although it maintains the shape of this model, the tuner has taken it to some limits that make it something spectacular, destined to shine in the SEMA. What attracts the most attention is King’s 6-centimeter lift kit, which manages to give the van a more impressive image. But be careful, because it doesn’t end there. The aluminum wheels covered with BFGoodrich off-road tires bring more …

2019 Jeep Cherokee Gets IIHS Top Safety Pick Rating

While beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, car safety is more of a science. The most popular crossover segment, however, is the compact class. Most of the models in the compact crossover segment possess an irresistible blend of affordability, efficiency, safety, comfort, and cargo space. You can get them cheap with little equipment, or you can load them up with luxury features. Truly, there is something for everyone in the compact crossover class. The capable and feature-filled 2019 Jeep Cherokee has received the Insurance Institute of Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick rating for vehicles produced after April 2019. The vehicle must be equipped with the available Forward Collision Warning-Plus Automatic Emergency Braking technology. The Front Collision Warning-Plus system was rated as ‘superior’ for front crash prevention. This available system uses sensor-fusion technology and camera capability with radar detection to try to detect a potential impact. The system then warns the driver to take action, if possible. The system can also activate braking if the driver does not respond quickly enough or the collision …

2019 Jeep Renegade Limited 4×4 Test Review

Affordable luxury off-road-capable SUVs are hard to come by. Jeep aims the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk at buyers that want all of the features and all of the off-road ability. Off-road, the Cherokee is the real deal. Virtually any sport-ute will get you down the average cottage trail, but when its system is set for the tough stuff, the Trailhawk delivers. I’ve driven it on very challenging courses and it had no problem getting through. The Wrangler is tougher overall, with more ground clearance and heavy-duty axles, but the Cherokee won’t embarrass you on the trail, and the dial-it-in simplicity of its off-road settings will appeal to those who don’t want or need the full-blown Wrangler Rubicon experience. It’s boxy and very retro in design, with the ever-present vertical grille (a standard on every Jeep) lending to the Jeeps of last years. I very much like how they played around, as they’re pretty cool to look at, plus that cool spoiler and aluminum looking plastic guard beneath the bumper that has two exhaust pipes. When viewed …

Jeep Gladiator

2020 Jeep Gladiator First Drive Review: Worth to Buy

Gladiator will offer two powertrains: a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with Engine Stop-Start (ESS) and eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission; and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 with ESS and an eight-speed automatic transmission available in 2020. With so much, the same, is the Gladiator really all that different than the Wrangler? While the Gladiator also uses a fully boxed high-strength steel frame underslung with solid axles, the differences begin with a JT frame that is 31-inches longer. The wheelbase grows by 18.9 inches from the JL Unlimited’s 118.4 inches, up to 137.3 inches for the Gladiator. While that sounds long, keep in mind that the AEV Brute came in at 139 inches, the’ 05 Power Wagon was 140 inches, and the current Toyota Tacoma and Chevy Colorado short beds come in at 127.4 and 128.3 inches respectively, while their long bed counterparts are 140.6 and 140.5 inches. The extra length of the JT comes from the fact that the distance from the A-pillar to the front axle is greater with solid axles (in order to …
