The Northwest Automotive Press Association’s (NWAPA) held their 22nd annual “Mudfest” competition this past April, and it was a great day for Jeep vehicles! The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition took home two awards, including the top honor: the Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year. It was also voted winner of the Family Utility class. Meanwhile, the 2016 Jeep Wrangler 75th Anniversary Edition was voted winner of the Extreme Capability class. The voting was conducted by automotive journalist members of NWAPA who were in attendance.
“For 2016 we made both our on- and off-road courses more challenging,” said Ryan Douthit, event chair and producer of Driving Sports TV. “The Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Grand Cherokee impressed our members with their ability to not only traverse any obstacle, but to do so with a unique sense of style and comfort. That’s why our members not only picked these three as best in their classes, but also selected the Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition as our Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year.”
The new 2016 Jeep Wrangler can be customized to your exact specifications, but the most appealing aspect is undoubtedly the series of off-road features you’ll find. The Wrangler boasts a powerful and efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine that has 285 horsepower and kicks out 260 pound-feet of torque. The extremely powerful 2016 Wrangler will keep you going as you rev up that engine and maximize all of its capabilities.
The other award-winning vehicle, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, also provides a bevy of features that will satisfy exploration lovers. When equipped with the Off-Road Adventure Group, the Grand Cherokee earns a Trail Rated badge, which lets you know that it performs admirably both on and off-road.
If these Jeep vehicles sound appealing, you’ll like them even more when you hop in one! Head down to our Jeep dealership near Bedford, NH, and test-drive one of these award-winning vehicles today!
It’s that time of year again — time for the annual Jeep Easter Safari! Jeep lovers from all over the country come together in the Moab desert to celebrate their love of off-roading and off-road vehicles. As they do annually, Jeep and Mopar teamed up to bring some fun concept vehicles to the Safari. This year is particularly special, as it’s both Jeep’s 50th anniversary and the 75th anniversary of the Easter Safari, which means that this year’s concept vehicle designs dialed things up an extra notch, and we think you’ll be excited to see them.
Batman, Superman and Jeep vehicles are all American icons, so it almost seems odd they haven’t come together before. Well, to celebrate the new movie, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the collaboration has finally happened. Fans will love the twin effort by Jeep to bring these American classics together: a fun commercial spot featuring new Batman actor Ben Affleck and a special, limited-edition Dawn of Justice trim on the Jeep Renegade.
Each year, the American Music Awards (AMA) features the best musical artists, producers and executives.

New England has plenty of beautiful back country to explore, and there is no better time of the year for an off-roading adventure than on a cool fall day. No matter if you’re at the helm of a Jeep Cherokee, Wrangler, Renegade or Compass, you have all the tools necessary to take your ride off the beaten path to more interesting and less traveled territory.
We’ve taken the time to highlight a few key areas of excellence in your Jeep, and just how they can take your fall plans to the next level.
When you buy a Jeep Trail Rated model, you get a vehicle tailor-made for adventures. It starts with the traction and 4×4 systems, giving you the power and capability to climb some of the roughest terrain in New Hampshire. Your Trail Rated Jeep also features additional electrical and body sealing so you don’t have to bypass small streams or flooded paths. Have some logs or rocks blocking your way? Not a problem when you have your Trail Rated Jeep, as it was designed to have more ground clearance with these obstacles in mind.
When your Jeep is properly equipped, it can tow just about anything you have in mind. Whether you’re taking the boat out to the lake or you’re hauling a camper for your family getaway, you can get it done easily with the trailering system on your Jeep. You can count on the team at our Jeep dealership near Nashua, NH to equip your vehicle with the proper trailering package!
If you’re leaving the paved roads in the rearview mirror and venturing out into the unknown, you’ll want a full tank of gas and the kind of efficiency that’ll allow you to focus more on navigating than conserving fuel. With large fuel tanks, like the 24.6-gallon one available in the Grand Cherokee, and mpg ratings as high as the 24 city/ 31 highway you get from the Renegade, you can pick a Jeep perfectly suited for your needs.
It’s time to break away from your ordinary weekend routine and get out this fall to explore New Hampshire. Take advantage of the time you have before the snow falls and take the family out to the lake or up into the mountains and get in touch with nature. It’s all around you, and you can fully appreciate it from the comfort of your Jeep!
