“Instant torque!”…”Sealed drivetrain for water crossings!”…”No more MPG worries!” and the list of silly comments goes on about the announcement from Jeep about the electrification of the complete Jeep line up.
With the Jeep brand experiencing record sales volumes, nearly year over year, they are faced with the conundrum that the rest of the automotive industry is, electrification. Jeep is simply electrifying their line up to meet the government’s Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards.
I have written about my take on an electric Jeep previously, and you can link to that post here.
Jeep is electrifying its entire line up simply to satisfy the CAFE standard as their sales numbers have made Jeep a greater player in the overall automotive market.
I find it laughable how many “sheeple” believe first in global warming, and secondly that electric vehicles could have any impact on the fallacy of global warming!!!
Prager University has produced the most succinct explanation of why electric vehicles are NOT “Green”.
IF electric vehicles were ultimately more efficient AND better for water crossings and instant torque, why didn’t Jeep electrify their line up years ago?!?!?
I am sure that I’ll get all kinds of hate for my take on electric Jeeps, and I say thank you!!! Thank you for buying an electric Jeep, so that Jeep can continue to produce an internal combustion engine-powered Jeep for me to buy!!!
Why does ANYBODY think that a cup mount phone holderis a good idea?!?!? There are MANY things in life that I wonder about, however, a cup mount phone holder is borderline dangerous!!!
I have always heard good things about WeatherTech Products, however, seeing their cup mount phone holder, the CupPhoneproduct makes me cringe!!!
Mobile phones are often a distraction while driving, however, using mobile phones hands-free functions, lessens the dangers. Using a cup mount phone in many ways defeats the purpose of the hands-free functions!!!
IF you must use your mobile while driving, OR if you use the GPS functions, put the phone in a holder that is at LEAST within your sightline while driving!!!
Apparently Jeep (FCA) thinks it’s a Jeep!!! I had previously posed the question of what makes a jeep, a Jeep? That post was met with mixed reviews, however according to autoweek.com, Jeep (FCA) seems to think that the Roxor is a Jeep!!!
“a legal term of art that generally refers to characteristics of the visual appearance of a product or its packaging (or even the design of a building) that signify the source of the product to consumers. Trade dress is a form of intellectual property.”
For the price of a JL Rubicon, I would seriously consider going with a JL Sport, then buying a Roxorwith a tow bar, and probably still be money ahead!!!
Damage Control Customsis now offering custom Hood Grills for the HMMWV. This is a great Made in the USA product that adds a unique look to the HMMWV, however does not alter the identity of the vehicle that the Jeep folks like to do!!!
As soon as you have one HMMWV/HUMMER, you’ll want another!!! So why not get an entire squadron?!?!
