A Cayenne can't go where this puppy can. It has a 2.5" MOPAR lift, full skids and rock rails, along with the 32" BFG MTs off of the JK Rubicon. It's no JK, but it's better than stock.

Be that as it may, Nobody is buying with the thought "Hey let's go swamp bogging and burrie it on the way home" like one would say a Wrangler

Well with all the sissy car tires I see on Jeep lots these day's off roading must be on its way out ?

Don't get me wrong, it's a GREAT looking rig, but if you buy one, be prepared for a real-world 12 MPG...
It's lower to the ground and more aerodynamic, but 18 mpg, even on the highway... I don't see how it's possible to get that even from a 6.1L in a Prius. That's just a big engine, with a lot of friction. That said, the EPA has revised its ratings downward based on a more stringent test routine, so... maybe?

Combined city/hwy, I'd bet it's around 12-14, depending on the driver.

XPLORE is working on a WK2 LIFT!

From XPLORE's Facebook:

"I'll bet most of you didn't know we are about to introduce our next XPLORE Jeep. Here is a sneak peek of the XPLORE Adventure Series Grand Cherokee under construction. This is going to be one very impressive Jeep designed for the premium buyer who is fed up with Hummers, Land Rovers and Cayenne's."

Another update with a nice shot of the KM2s!

Just a teaser shot for you....we are just putting the finishing touches on our new XPLORE Adventure Series Grand Cherokee. The complete photo shoot will debut on our website on the 27th of June. How about those big BFGoodrich Tires and trick Xplore/Method Race Wheels? Can anybody spot some of the other changes we have made? This is one seriously cool Jeep.




Will it look like my Chop?

Nope. It's cool, but not the aggressive off-roader it could be!
