Jeep: purpose-built for adventure

Jeep is the main mean of transportation in the Philippines. Even in far flung areas like the Mountain province. Riding a jeep in the province is an adventure. One can see passengers even on top-load. Those who visited already the Mountain Province, they can say that the trip there is really a total adventure.

With 68 years of legendary 4x4 capability, the Jeep brand continues to fulfill promises of adventure, liberation, and independence for those who truly embrace life, whether traveling on-or off-road.

"The Jeep brand's legendary heritage has made it one of the most recognized brands in the world," said John Plecha, Director -Jeep Marketing and Global Communications, Chrysler LLC. "No other automotive brand today can say that it has consistently provided owners with a sense of freedom and adventure with the right mix of vehicles to safely take them where they want to go, whether it's closer to nature and the outdoors, or maneuvering through neighborhood streets."

Jeep 4x4 vehicles are tested on the toughest trails in the world to prove that they can handle any situation. The proof is in the Trail Rated badge, indicating that Jeep 4x4s have been designed to perform in five categories of off-road conditions: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording.

For 2009, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot feature all-new redesigned instrument panels, center console and door trim panels. To reduce noise and provide a quieter ride, engine compartment and interior floor insulation were added and improved, and tuning improvements were made to the engine exhaust.

Grand Cherokee and Commander feature an all-new 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and Chrysler's Multi-displacement System (MDS), providing improved fuel economy, idle quality and overall refinement. The vehicles also feature new customer amenities, delivering passenger and cargo versatility combined with unmatched off-road capability. Grand Cherokee engine options include a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel featuring advanced next-generation diesel technology and an integrated particulate filter to help reduce exhaust emissions and engine noise. Also available is a 4.7-liter V8 Flex-Fuel engine, capable of using an 85 percent concentration of ethanol (E85).

All-new in 2008, the mid-size Liberty offers the legendary Trail Rated Jeep 4x4 capability combined with a new level of on-road refinement and innovative features, including the industry-exclusive Sky Slider full-length, open canvas roof. Chassis improvements for 2009 provide a more precise, linear feel and improved steering and handling.

The brand icon, the two-door Jeep Wrangler, remains true to its heritage as the original, extreme fun and freedom machine and it is the only 4x4 convertible with multiple open-air options including the three-piece Freedom Top system and Sunrider Soft Top. The four-door Wrangler Unlimited adds refinement to its class-leading off-road capability and everyday practicality, remaining extremely popular with customers who always wanted a Wrangler, but needed more space and versatility.
