Jeep Clinches 1-2 Finish on “Most American” Vehicle List

Nothing says “American” more than toughness and resilience in the face of anything thrown your way. No vehicle captures that ideal better than a Jeep. So it’s no surprise that Jeep has earned the well-deserved “Most American” accolade on the annual American-Made Index, which evaluates vehicles on key criteria such as assembly location, domestic parts content and U.S. factory employment.

Two for the Win

Two Jeep variants, to be exact, made Old Glory proud. The Jeep Wrangler gets the top spot for 2017: It’s assembled in Toledo, OH, its domestic parts content at 74 and 75 percent for the standard two-door and four-door Unlimited models respectively, which is among the highest observed on this year’s index. The Jeep Cherokee, meanwhile, came in at close second. Take note, these rankings have taken all vehicles into account, from cars to SUVs to trucks.

Jeep Wrangler: True to its Heritage

Combine a legendary four-wheel-drive setup with unparalleled off-road ability and you get the Jeep Wrangler, arguably the most recognizable off-roader on the planet. Make no mistake, more than seven decades after the first Jeep models helped win the war for the Allies, the Wrangler is still a force to reckon with in terms of rugged capability. Modern mechanical innovations have made their way to the Jeep since, including a body-on-frame design, five-link suspension systems and electronic locking differentials. Despite this, the Wrangler still pays homage to essence of the original Jeep with uncompromising toughness in practically all conditions; a six-speed manual transmission is even still offered as standard, one of the few mid-size SUVs doing so. Best-in-class ground clearance lets you assault arduous terrain with ease. Choose between Sunrider®, Soft Top or Freedom Top® roof options for unmatched flexibility when tackling the great outdoors. Every Wrangler earns its Trail Rated® badge after passing a series of grueling tests, with the help of the Rock-Trac® 4x4 System and bolstered by Dana® 44 heavy duty solid axles. A 3.6-liter Pentastar® engine with variable valve timing serves as the powerhouse for the Wrangler’s capabilities, dishing out 285 horsepower with 260 lb.-ft. of torque for best-in-class towing of up to 3,500 lbs., all while needing nothing more than regular-octane gasoline.

Comfort and Convenience Await Inside

Tough as it is, the Wrangler isn’t harsh on its occupants. The suspension adjusts from firm at low speeds to a much more relaxed composition at higher speeds, the better for when you take the Wrangler on a steady cruise. Comfort-designed seats can withstand continuous use with ample cushioning and support, while optional heated front bucket seats keep you warm when the temperature drops. Interior courtesy lights show you the way to make yourself more comfortable, while an electrochromatic rear view mirror takes the harsh glare away from traffic behind you. If you love to get down and dirty, the Wrangler’s weather-resistant surfaces and interior drain plugs take away the hassle of cleaning. Various storage options ensure that you get to bring everything you need to take on Mother Nature.

You would think something with the Jeep Wrangler’s heritage isn’t capable of being sophisticated. Well guess what? Like a true soldier, the Wrangler isn’t afraid of anything, even change. A 6.5-inch Uconnect® touchscreen monitor comes packed with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio for entertainment, routed through a nine-speaker Alpine® Premium Sound System with all-weather subwoofer. Never get lost with the Garmin® Travel Link for crystal-clear navigation with lane guidance, while keeping in touch with hands-free smartphone connectivity and voice command in English, French and Spanish. Stay connected even in nature’s presence with onboard Wi-Fi, capable of handling multiple mobile devices at once.

Tough Inside and Out

Like any true American hero, the Wrangler is always ready to keep you and your company safe. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) lets you tread securely even on dangerous paths, with Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM) keeping you on your feet. When anything untoward happens, advanced multistage front air bags and supplemental side air bags soften the blow. And the standard Enhanced Accident Response System (EARS) ensures that the help you need gets to you, fast.
