Jeep ended 2014 with record numbers as sales topped 1 million units for the first time, thanks to factors including a demand for SUVs and lower gas prices. Just for Jeeps customers are well aware of the quality, durability and style of Jeeps and it seems the world is taking notice. Jeep owner Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV recently reported an increase in global sales of 39 percent to 1.02 million vehicles led by Cherokees and Grand Cherokees. In addition, other Jeep SUV models contributed to these record sales.
Growth in 2014 was led by more than 692,000 deliveries in the United States, a whopping 41 percent increase from 2013. This made Jeep the fastest-growing major auto brand in the U.S. During the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2014, Fiat Chrysler’s CEO predicted sales of more than 1 million units but that was seen as being too high a number, with 800,000 units being a more realistic forecast. On the heels of a great 2014, what can Jeep expect for 2015? Gas prices are still low, so that may continue to fuel SUV sales. Jeep is expanding its U.S. lineup to include the subcompact Jeep Renegade and a refreshed Grand Cherokee is due later in 2015, the popular Cherokee and expanded sales in Europe and Asia should lead to a solid 2015.

When the weather turns cold, you retrieve your winter coat, gloves, boots and hat to combat the arctic blast. Why wouldn’t you take similar measures for protecting your Jeep from harsh winter weather? Winterization preparations should begin in the fall while temperatures are still warm enough to allow you to be outside for a long period of time.

A thorough vehicle inspection done at an automotive center is a great idea as an inspection can uncover potential problems that may not readily be visible. If you have weatherstripping that is loose or cracked, this can be found during a vehicle inspection. Additionally, fluid leaks, bad hoses and frayed wiring can be discovered and fixed before winter sets in. One of the last things that you want is to be left stranded someplace as a result of a cracked hose that could have been discovered during an inspection.
Some of the obvious vehicle winterization tips include checking antifreeze levels and making sure you are using the appropriate antifreeze for your climate. Antifreeze should be properly mixed as this results in good corrosion protection for your Jeep’s cooling system. A 50/50 antifreeze/water ratio is considered normal but this ratio can change if you top off fluid levels by adding water only. Many antifreezes come premixed and it is good habit to add the premix to your fluid level rather than water only. To be safe, you should flush and fill your Jeep’s antifreeze reservoir before winter begins. This will help ensure that your engine block does not crack due to water freezing inside the block.
Checking your tires is also on the list of obvious things to inspect before winter arrives. In some areas, snow tires are required and should be readily available. Some mountain locales also required the use on tire chains and you should keep these in your vehicle during the winter months. You should also practice installing the chains before winter begins because in many cases, the need to use tire chains comes unexpectedly; during a sudden winter storm for example. If your Jeep is located in a warmer winter climate, you may be laughing at these winterization tips but there is one thing that you should check on your Jeep even if you live in a warm climate. Always check your Jeep’s headlamps to see if they are working properly. Even though it may not be cold during the winter in your location, the daylight hours tend to be shorter, requiring longer use of headlights.
You should also check for innocuous items including your Jeep’s engine thermostat, defroster and windshield wiper blades. If the engine thermostat is bad, your Jeep could take longer to warm up, leading to a reduction in fuel economy. Obviously, you cannot check the defroster if temperatures are too warm for frost to develop, but at the onset of frost, check your defroster. If it does not work, you need to have it checked out.
Winterization can save you from big ticket items such as a cracked engine block and possibly an overheated engine, but the measures can also save you time an aggravation as you are less likely to need to call a tow truck to get a jump start because you did not check your battery or consider installing a new battery before the winter began.
