2017 SUV of the Year

Serious off-roaders need serious SUVs that can handle the rigors of crawling over rocks, crossing streams, and climbing mountains. This year, FOUR WHEELER magazine has named the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk its 2017 SUV of the Year.


With this award, the Grand Cherokee continues its legacy as the most-awarded SUV ever. The SUV of the Year award is given to the best-performing model after a rigorous week of intense testing. FOUR WHEELER’s judges take the contenders through more than 1,000 miles of testing that includes mud, snow, rocks, sands, dirt, gravel, and pavement. They consider visibility, four-wheel-drive system performance, tire performance, and more when making their decision.


“Our new Trailhawk model is the most capable Grand Cherokee ever produced, and we’re delighted the FOUR WHEELER editors have recognized its outstanding combination of off-road features,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global. “Trailhawk instantly provided Grand Cherokee customers even more legendary Jeep 4×4 capability, quickly becoming one of the fastest-selling and most sought-after models in our lineup.”


When you drive home in the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, it will come equipped with some remarkable equipment, including Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system, a unique version of the Quadra-Lift air suspension, Selec-Speed Control, skid plates, and more. All features are aimed at letting you have the time of your life when you head off the pavement.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Car Lovers

Valentine's Day Gifts for Car Lovers

A detail would be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the car lover in your life.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. If you haven’t planned a gift for the love of your life yet, we have some ideas. If your significant other loves his or her car almost as much as they love you, or they just spend a lot of time in their car, here are some Valentine’s Day gifts for car lovers.

  • Bluetooth adapter. If your love has an older car that doesn’t have Bluetooth, help them catch up to modern times with a Bluetooth adapter. They’ll be able to enjoy the convenience of hands-free control.
  • Satellite radio. Give them the gift of music with a subscription to satellite radio. Once they’ve experienced commercial-free radio, no matter where they are, they’ll never want to go back.
  • Remote starter. There’s nothing quite like climbing into a warm car when its freezing outside. Give them a remote starter (include installation) so they can enjoy a warm car in the winter and cool car in the summer.
  • Car detail. We all love having a clean car, but nothing can beat having your car detailed. Let your loved one feel like they’re driving something new again by getting their car detailed inside and out.
