THE PAINT AND BODY ON THIS JEEP ARE IN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE HOW WELL THE PAINT STILL SHINES! IT REALLY IS BEAUTIFUL AND ITS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IT IS 33 YEARS OLD! THE ORIGINAL RENEGADE DECALS ARE STILL NICE TOO. THE BODY IS NEAR PERFECT. THERE ARE VERY FEW DINGS AND VERY LITTLE RUST TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE. THE FRAME, BODY MOUNTS, FLOORBOARDS, ROCKERS, ETC. ARE ALL ROCK SOLID WITH NO RUST. WHEN YOU CRAWL UNDERNEATH THIS JEEP IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO ROAD SALT, ETC. IT IS ALSO QUITE OBVIOUS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE MUD. IT IS SUPER, SUPER SOLID AND SUPER CLEAN UNDERNEATH. THE ONLY RUST TO BE FOUND ON THE JEEP IS UNDER THE FRONT WINDSHIELD ON THE WINDSHIELD FRAME. IT IS MINOR AND COULD EASILY BE REPAIRED IF DESIRED. IT DOES NOT REALLY AFFECT THE OVERALL SHARP APPEARANCE OF THIS CJ AND IS QUITE NORMAL FOR THESE 30 YEAR OLD JEEPS SO I HAVE DECIDED TO LEAVE IT ALONE. IT REALLY IS AN AMAZINGLY ORIGINAL AND CLEAN CJ. IT EVEN STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL SELLING DEALERS STICKER ON THE LEFT REAR OF THE JEEP! INSIDE YOU WILL FIND THE INTERIOR TO BE 90% ORIGINAL. THE DASH IS BEAUTIFUL AND THE ORIGINAL SPORT STEERING WHEEL IS STILL PRESENT AND LOOKS NICE. THE ORIGINAL PAINT IS STILL ON THE FLOORBOARDS FRONT AND REAR (NO RHINO LINING HERE) AND THEY LOOK CLEAN. THE ORIGINAL TAN DENIM SEATS ARE ALL THERE BUT THEY ARE SHOWING THEIR AGE. THE BESTOP SOFT TOP IS IN VERY NICE CONDITION AND THE PADDED ROLL BAR COVER WAS ADDED SEVERAL YEARS AGO BUT LOOKS NEW. OVERALL, IT REALLY IS CLEAN INSIDE. THE SPEEDOMETER STILL WORKS AS DOES THE TACHOMETER, WIPERS, TURN SIGNALS, LIGHTS, ETC. THE FUEL GAUGE DOES NOT WORK NOR DOES THE HORN.
THIS JEEP RUNS AND DRIVES WELL. THE 258 STRAIGHT 6 STARTS EASILY AND RUNS LIKE A TOP. IT DOES NOT SMOKE, RUN HOT, KNOCK, ETC. I REALLY HAVEN'T EVEN NOTICED ANY SIGNIFICANT OIL LEAKS EITHER. THE 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION SHIFTS WELL TOO WITH NO GRINDING. THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE WORKS JUST AS IT SHOULD TOO IN HIGH AND LOW RANGE. THE TIRES ARE LIKE NEW WITH LOTS OF TREAD REMAINING AND THE BRAKES FEEL FINE. I HAVE SOME MAINTENANCE RECORDS FOR THE JEEP AND ALL OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER'S BOOKS AND DOCUMENTS. AGAIN, THIS IS A VERY NICE UNRESTORED (ALMOST UNTOUCHED) CJ. THESE ARE GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND AND ARE ONLY APPRECIATING IN VALUE.

Unless the governor, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne, gives them a reprieve, the 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot are expected to meet their makers sometime next year. Should they perish, it's a shame that it would happen just as they've shed the continuously variable transmission that was their major bugbear, and just as the Compass has gotten its best looks yet.

Both will roll with a proper six-speed automatic transmission, courtesy of PowerTech. Noise-resistant gears and tuning by Chrysler boffins should alleviate the unappealing sounds that were given off by the older CVT. Unless, that is, you choose to have either model equipped with Freedom Drive II; the serious off-road package, available on both baby Jeeps, will still come with the CVT. The base transmission on the entry-level Sport trim remains the five-speed manual.
Otherwise, it's minor changes for the Compass, set off by the new 18-inch wheel option, trim pieces around the car and a back-up camera. The Patriot gets seat-mounted airbags, but is carryover otherwise. With their expected demises perhaps a year away, not much has changed otherwise. Engine choices comprise the 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque or the 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 172 hp and 165 lb-ft.
Contrary to what a certain politician may have said last year about Jeep moving to China, the automaker is in fact doing the opposite, with plans to greatly increase the production capacity at its Toledo North Assembly plant in Ohio. The Detroit Free Press is reporting that there are big plans for the 2014 Jeep Cherokee and Toledo North, as a local union president has informed the newspaper that Chrysler is planning to produce around 250,000 examples of the new midsize utility per year.

To put this number into context, 250,000 units is more than what Jeep Liberty sales totaled here over the last three years combined. Even taking into consideration that the 250,000 units will be distributed beyond US borders, that's an ambitious volume figure full-stop - and that's without taking into consideration the new Cherokee's love/hate design. In its favor, though, Jeep is making remarkable inroads globally as of late, and the Cherokee's size could work well in emerging markets. To get that kind of output from Toledo's Cherokee assembly line, Chrysler will reportedly hire 1,105 new workers - that's in addition to the 200 workers already being hired to build the popular Jeep Wrangler, which is itself expected to top 220,000 units this year.
Choose Your Own Adventure... But Choose Wisely
Jeep has got you covered. We can say this without even having to know what it is you want, because there's hardly an option or configuration that you won't find in the 2014 Grand Cherokee. There are three different engines, three different four-wheel-drive systems (plus rear-wheel drive), four different trim levels - not counting SRT - two different suspension setups and five different settings for various off-road terrain conditions. If you happen to check the box for Quadra-Lift, you'll also have five different ride-height settings for the driver-selectable air suspension.
As you might expect with so many customization possibilities, the way a buyer checks the options sheet can have a profound effect on the final product and its capabilities, to say nothing of its price. Nowhere is that more true than with the Grand Cherokee's choice of engines, with the brand-new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 stealing the spotlight from the still excellent gasoline-fueled 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V8 powerplants that carry over from last year. No matter which engine you choose, though, it will be paired up with Jeep's new standard eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF. This, ladies and gentlemen, is very good news indeed.
