    1419278400

    With less than two weeks until 2014 takes its final bow, anyone and everyone is looking back on the past 50 or so weeks to see how they stacked up.

    Video: Watch this 840-hp Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 walk away from GT-Rs and M3s
    1418346000

    This last-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 does things that SUVs just shouldn't be able to do, like win drag races against tuned Nissan GT-R and BMW M3 coupes. Granted, the owner isn't coming into this fight with a stock Jeep – far from it. In addition to twin turbos whistling away, he says the engine is a 449-cubic-inch V8, which is nearly 7.4 ...

    Video: This SEMA special drag race is absurdly awesome
    1417802400

    The SEMA show came and went last month, and it showed us a ton of heavily modded goodies to dream about during the long, cold winter. The Motor Trend Channel on YouTube is keeping the party rolling a little longer, though, with a drag race inspired by the aftermarket event. All of the hosts were supposed to borrow a vehicle from the show for the big ...

    Video: Here's why you shouldn't try to drift a Jeep Cherokee
    1416949200

    There are many reasons why an XJ-generation (or really any other) Jeep Cherokee doesn't make for a very good drift machine. It's tall, it's four-wheel-drive... it's a Jeep, okay? But someone apparently forgot to tell that to this guy. Uploaded to LiveLeak, this video shows some poor schmuck who took his Cherokee to a (mostly) empty parking lot and tried ...

    Report: 2018 Jeep Wrangler to get 8-speed auto
    1416931200

    Remember when the Jeep Wrangler had a three-speed automatic? That wasn't that long ago – as recent as the 2007 redesign – but Chrysler is keen to leave those days behind on the dusty trail. The current model ushered in a four-speed, then a five-speed, but the latest intel indicates that an eight-speed automatic is in the cards. According to a ...

    Report: Jeep Wrangler likely to get aluminum body
    1416686400

    Perhaps more than any other vehicle currently for sale in North America, the Jeep Wrangler is viewed by purist fans as a vehicle that simply must maintain the status quo. In this case, that means a body-on-frame design, solid axles, a relatively large engine sitting up front and a removable top. It's always been that way, and it always will ...

Now GMC reportedly wants to take a stab at the quintessential Jeep, as well. The news comes directly from Buick-GMC vice president Duncan Aldred, speaking with ...
