4 New Jeep Concepts Introduced at Beijing Motor Show

China has turned into a major market for Jeep. It is for this reason that Jeep has introduced four new concepts at the 2014 Beijing International Motor Show. The Jeeps are an infusion of modern day style with inspiration of millennia of Chinese culture. Their names are the Jeep Sageland, Urbane, Sundancer and Zi You Xia.

Jeep Zi You Xia Design Concept:


The Zi You Xia is based on the recently debuted Jeep Renegade. Zi You Xia translates to “rebel.” The color of the concept Jeep is inspired by the colors of the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing. The scheme is Warm Chocolate Gray with Dark Anodized Bronze for contrast on various exterior parts of the Jeep such as the grille and the bezels.

The Zi You Xia also comes with the world’s first nine-speed automatic transmission and has been designed to appeal to a global market. For that reason, the Jeep comes with up to 16 powertrain combinations.

Jeep Cherokee Sageland & Urbane Design Concepts:


Both are based on the all-new and popular Jeep Cherokee. The Cherokee has already been released in the Chinese market and will now be offering its customers the chance for something extra and new.

The Sageland is inspired by the Shangri-La Region and its historical landmarks and natural scenerise. A Ivory tri-coat Pearl with bronze grille collars coat the exterior while netural grey leather seats and red and blue accent stitches fill the insides. The stitching on the seats is inspired by traditional Chinese knot design and the pattern on the doors draws its inspiration from Chinese ornamental door knobx.


In contrast, the Urbane is made with an appeal to nightlife. The exterior color is in Maximum Steel along with Hyper Black accents. The interior is based on Chinese calligraphy with bold brush stroke patterns set against dark red Nappa leather seats. Even the floor mats are stylized with a unique decorative pattern based on traditional Chinese windows.

Jeep Wrangler Sundancer Design Concept:


The really awesome name comes from the combination of the Chocolate Brown metallic color with gold accents. Even the windows get extra flair in this concept with bronze tinted glass. To really impress onlookers, the Sundancer comes equipped with 20-inch pale gold billet aluminum wheels with polished gold inserts.

The Sundancer is modeled on the Wrangler Rubicon. It comes with the choice of either the 3.6L V-6 Pentastar petrol engine or 3.0L V-6 Pentastar petrol engine.

Motor Trend Takes the Jeep Wrangler on the Rubicon Trail


Jeeps were built for the intention of conquering the terrain.  The brand started life with the intent to ensure that no field of battle was too dangerous to traverse.  Now, that has extended into civilian life as Jeeps are synonymous with tackling the great outdoors.  Anyone who gets a Jeep is someone who at some point behind the wheel will daydream themselves into a scenario involving some rocky terrain that only they can drive over.

Jonny Lieberman at Motor Trend got the chance to live out the fantasy of taking a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon out to the Rubicon Trail.  The Trail is notoriously difficult for any 4×4 to handle and Jeeps have been driving it since the 50’s to prove their prowess with difficult terrains.  Lieberman put his full experience up on YouTube for viewers to see and it’s a wonderful sight indeed:

It’s stunning to see the capability of a Jeep Wrangler that the average driver never gets to see while stuck in New York traffic.

If you’re looking to purchase a Jeep Wrangler, for driving in New York City or in the great outdoors, contact a sales rep at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge for more information.  The dealership operates in Bayside Queens area of New York and has quality sales reps to help you drive away in the new or used car that suits your lifestyle.

Over 1 Million Jeep Wranglers Made!

UntitledStrap on the party hats and send in the clowns, Jeep is throwing a celebration!  Their factory in Toledo just produced their 1 millionth Jeep Wrangler!

Now, it’s not just any ol’ Jeep Wrangler, the one millionth unit fresh off the assembly line happened to be a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition.

Production has been going very strong at the Toledo Plant.  In 2012, it produced more than 200,000 Wranglers.  That’s the highest output of any year.  They’ve been at max capacity of getting Wranglers out the factory door that Chrysler has recently brought on an additional 200 workers to get production increased.  They want to see 800,000 total sales for 2014 and need the workforce to be able to keep up.

“Every Wrangler we can make is a sold car for us, and the volumes are increasing worldwide, “said Mauro Pino, the VP of Chrysler assembly operations.  “This is a very good problem to manage.”

Jeep is gearing up to get a real sales surge from overseas.  Even with countries like China expressing a huge desire in Jeeps, Sergio Marchinonne, the CEO of Chrysler, has pledged to make sure that production of the popular Wrangler will remain right here state-side.
