Jeep

 

Jeep is an American automobile marque, now owned by multi-national corporation Stellantis.  Jeep has been part of Chrysler since 1987, when Chrysler acquired the Jeep brand, along with remaining assets, from its previous owner American Motors Corporation (AMC).

The Jeep brand was officially founded in 1941 and started out building vehicles specifically equipped for the military.  The origin of the Jeep questioned, but the main theory states that the name came from slurring the cars designation “GP” into “Jeep.” GP stood for Government Purposes or General Purpose.

 

 

Jeep Avenger

The Avenger is a small crossover, the boot is a compact 355 litres and dimensions wise, it is slightly shorter, narrower and lower than a Vauxhall Mokka. The 54kWh lithium-ion battery eschews the industry practice of merely being fitted flat into the floor, instead being placed around the four-door hatchback body allowing a lower seat height and a taller-riding stance. Its official Combined range is 249 miles. A 154bhp/184lb ft electric motor drives the front wheels and gives a top speed of 93mph, with 0-62mph in 9 seconds. Efficiency is quoted at 4.6 miles per kWh and charging times are 24 minutes for 20 to 80 per cent using a 100kW DC fast charger and 8 hours for a 100 per cent charge on a 7.4kW home wall box. The Avenger has received glowing reviews, including Car of the Year 2023.  Advance Payments £2249 Summit, £2449 Altitude, £2649 Longitude. (Note the Top trim is the cheapest Summit)
