Five Interesting Jeep Concepts

Ever since the first GP Army vehicle arrived on the scene to be able to handle any terrain offered to it, the Jeep brand has been creating concept models that are built to offer more of the off-road capabilities real adventurers seek.

Let’s take a look at five interesting models that have made their way to the concept collection of Jeep. (more…)

Big Money and Big Moves for FCA

For the past few years, FCA has been the automotive group that we’ve looked at as missing out on the profits and the success that have been enjoyed by some of the other automakers in the industry. As a direct competitor in the US with Ford and GM, FCA is looked at as the third of the Detroit Big Three to make it one that has to be able to compete. When you look at what FCA offers for the driving experience, you might think they are having troubles financially, and that was true until the past couple of years. (more…)

When something is needed to improve lives and give people new items that will help give them more time back, create a convenient way to perform tasks or to just be better than what is already in production, there needs to be someone willing to find a way to bring the item to the masses. Jeep is an American company that has a global reach with their off road read vehicles that are perfect for tackling nearly every terrain and many companies around the world have taken Jeep models and made something new out of them to fit the performance needs they have.

Sleeping Their Way to Success

What is a “sleeper”?  In most cases this is a person or a product that ends up giving a performance that greatly outdoes the expectations of the market or industry.  In the automotive industry there are many sleepers that look like they might do well, but little is actually expected of them.  What happens when these sleepers start to become the leaders in sales and on the market, the manufacturer has to scramble to keep up with the demand, but certainly is able to be giddy about the unexpected success of one of their products.  Here are some cars that were deemed sleepers over the past several years.

When You still Want to Shift

For many years the idea of driving a sports car with an automatic transmission was laughable.  These transmissions were capable of taking the shifting off our plates but couldn’t give us the fuel mileage we would get from a manual and certainly couldn’t give us the performance we desired.  That has all changed and now more cars are fitted with automatics than ever before because they are now made to deliver better fuel mileage and certainly can shift faster and smoother than we can ourselves.  Even with that thought, if you want to enjoy a manual transmission and handle the shifting duties yourself, here are twenty cars that still allow you to do so.
