Jeep® Gladiator Hercules Model Could Be in the Works

Late in 2018, Jeep® finally revealed the 2020 Gladiator, a ruggedly handsome pickup truck that offers best-in-class capabilities. We here at Transwest Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram didn’t think it could get much better than the Gladiator – until now. Recently, the rumor mill has been turning and it looks like there might be a high-performance version of the Gladiator in the works – and it will be called the Hercules.

Previously, during the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, Mark Allen, Jeep®‘s head of design, mentioned that a high-speed off-road vehicle would be on the brand’s agenda for its future lineup. While the Jeep® Gladiator Hercules model hasn’t officially been signed off just yet, it looks like prototypes of the performance pickup truck are being built for testing.

If the Hercules does come to life, we can only speculate at its power. It will have to offer more power than the Gladiator’s standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which currently puts out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The Gladiator Hercules will also probably utilize a variety of Mopar aftermarket parts to give it even more aggressive styling.

Should this vehicle come to market, it will compete with the Ford Ranger Raptor.

While the Hercules is just a rumor at this point, you’ll soon be able to check out the Jeep Gladiator at Transwest Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.

Get Winter Ready With Jeep

Colder temperatures can cause dangerous road conditions and freezes the cabin so you’re cold when you first jump in the car. To prepare for the oncoming cold, we’ve put together a few reasons why you should get winter ready with Jeep this year.

Utilize all-wheel drive. Jeep is known for its all-wheel-drive capabilities. It’s this rugged drive system that makes the Jeep brand ideal for the winter. All-wheel drive will help you accelerate better and maintain traction on snowy or icy roads, giving more confidence behind the wheel when it’s winter.

Stay warm. There’s no denying that winter weather can be on the cold side, but Jeep has you covered. No matter which model you choose, you will find a trim level that has heated seats, a heated steering wheel, or remote start. That way you won’t have to worry about feeling like you’re sitting on a block of ice and you can pay more attention to the road.

Don’t freeze your engine. Many Jeeps can be equipped with an engine block heater. This will allow your vehicle to start up and warm faster when the temperatures are frigid. It could also potentially help you reduce wear on your engine, reduce emissions, and warm you up faster when you’re waiting for the hot air to come through the vents.

Get a Jeep so you can pay attention to the beauties of winter without freezing in the car’s cabin. You can stay warm and browse our selection of Jeeps at Transwest CDJR.

An Introduction to Jeep®

Few auto brands are as quintessentially American as Jeep®. Its name recognition surpasses that of companies like Ford or Chevrolet, and traces its origins to a military all-terrain vehicle. Since its inception, Jeep® models have been designed to take on any climate, with a capacity for off-road and on-road performance that people can depend on.

Welcome to Jeep®, where all vehicles are built to be reliable, tough, and capable, whether you’re looking for the classic Wrangler or the more sleek and efficient Compass.

While most people think of the Jeep® Wrangler when Jeep®first crosses their minds, the brand’s lineup has only expanded to include other modern and upscale SUVs and crossovers. The family-friendly Jeep® Grand Cherokee, for example, comfortably accommodates all your needs with plenty of space, and models like the Compass and Renegade provide all the versatility and convenience of a small, smart crossover.

However, if the iconic Jeep® Wrangler is more your speed, then good news: it was just redesigned for the next generation for the 2018 model year, giving it more modern comforts and amenities.introduction to Jeep®

A good introduction to Jeep® is certainly to get behind the wheel of one, and here at Transwest CDJR, we have plenty.  Make sure to come and visit us soon for a test drive!
