2010 Jeep Wrangler
2010 Jeep Wrangler
The newest release of the Jeep Wrangler offers a lot of the classic styling that many people associate with this classic Jeep model. This is without a question the oldest of all Jeep models and has been in production for over 70 years. The Jeep Wrangler has been through many changes, but much of the style and heavy duty rugged build is still here. This vehicle is road ready, but has always been built for a big performance off the road. There is no other model from Jeep that is better equipped to handle mud pits and steep hills. With consumer demands for more comfortable seating and common accoutrements like air conditioning, the Jeep Wrangler has moved into the 21st century with some new additions to meet these needs. However, at its core this is still a rugged off road vehicle that is meant to be abused.

The 2010 model Jeep Wrangler starts at $21,165. The standard motor in this Jeep is the 3.8 liter V-6 which offers more than enough power for this small and lightweight off road warrior.

The Problem: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had previously investigated reports of the Jeep Wrangler catching fire, and now Jeep has issued an official recall. For 2010, the company changed the location of the Wrangler's catalytic converter to meet emissions requirements. However, due to the design of an underbody skid plate, debris could accumulate near the converter. Though the owner's manual warns drivers to clear the skid plate, failing to do so could lead debris to be heated by the catalyst and catch fire. Jeep has received at least 14 reports of fires due to this problem.

As thrilling as the vintage races always are at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in mid-August, I'm glad I wasn't there to watch Stirling Moss's crash. It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but after plunging three flights down his home's elevator shaft last March, Sir Stirling, 80, had been pushing the boundaries of rehab to be ready to race his recently acquired 1961 Porsche RS61 during the big weekend. He seemed no worse for the wear when we caught up at Mercedes-Benz's celebrity-laden Sunday party at the Pebble Beach concours. There was so much action on the Monterey Peninsula that, by Sunday, we were ready for that party.

For the past couple years, the Wrangler has been the bestselling Jeep, which is kind of fitting. True, the new Grand Cherokee is off to a roaring start and might retake the top spot, but whether the Wrangler is in first or second place, it is the heart and soul of this brand.

Chrysler shrugged off detractors and delivered its fifth consecutive sales gain in August, posting a 7-percent year-over-year gain as well. The most successful models were dispersed among Chrysler's core brands: Dodge, Jeep, and Ram.

Mopar accessories are usually installed on a new Jeep product, but its latest offering will be dragged behind. Chrysler announced today that its accessories division will offer a new range of Jeep-branded off-road camping trailers, which will hit dealers later this summer.
