My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler, New Look, New Tech and launched at the LA Motor Show.
The all new Jeep® Wrangler – the most capable SUV ever – makes its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show today, building on its legendary history with an unmatched combination of off-road capability, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, superior on- and off-road dynamics, and a host of innovative safety and advanced technology features.
Even more legendary go-anywhere 4x4 capability
The all-new Jeep Wrangler delivers unmatched off-road capability courtesy of specific technical features including two advanced 4x4 systems, new Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case, Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited-slip differential and the electronic sway-bar disconnect.
Modern take on authentic Jeep Wrangler design
The Wrangler's unique exterior design includes an instantly recognizable keystone-shaped grille, iconic round headlamps and square taillamps, improved aerodynamics, a convenient fold-down windshield, even more open-air freedom, and dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations.
The new car’s interior combines authentic styling, precision craftsmanship and high-quality materials that result in improved versatility and comfort for drivers and passengers.
The all-new Jeep Wrangler is loaded with more advanced technology features than ever before and offers three new Uconnect systems (Uconnect 5-, 7- and 8.4NAV), delivering communication, entertainment and navigation features. These new, fourth-generation Uconnect systems include a full-colour LED instrument cluster, the choice of 5.0, 7.0- or 8.4-inch touchscreens with pinch-and-zoom capability, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features. Safety and security were paramount in the development of the new generation of Jeep Wrangler, which offers more than 75 available active and passive safety and security features.
New advanced fuel-efficient powertrains join the Wrangler line-up available in North America including the all-new 2.0-litre turbocharged inline four-cylinder and the 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V-6 engines mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
