From Italy…With Love

No, not that kind of love. This Valentine’s Day offering doesn’t come with hearts and flowers. It comes from Italy–manufactured right alongside the Fiats. Ooooh, I know right? It’s the new Jeep Renegade. And Big Al’s got one for your sweetie.

It’s been labeled the “Most capable small SUV ever.” Well, that’s a tall order, non? There’s more.

Kelly Blue Book named it, “One of the 10 Best SUVs under $25,000 and Auto Week knighted it with an Editor’s Choice award for “Most fun.”

What’s the fuss about? A new shape, all the bells and whistles at an attractive price point and the sports-minded actually can own a Jeep. This one’s a little more curvy but it comes from Italy after all.

The first thing drivers notice is the Active Drive Low and Rock Mode–meant to get you over and through anything off road. It’s a 2.4 L Tigershark engine in a 4X4 system upping both the power and torque. According to those in the know, an “ultimate off-roading partner.”

That doesn’t mean you’re strapped into an uncomfortable box bouncing through Sedona. Choose to open the My Sky above head panel or remove the thing altogether creating the open air Jeep of the past. Three trims, like all the Jeeps include Sport, Latitude and Limited. Seats can be leather or cloth and five can sit comfortably. Of course seats fold down, including the passenger, making hauling easy-peasey.

Not to skimp on the experience, features include Keyless Go, HID headlamps, UConnect, AM/FM and Sirius XM, voice command, touch screen interface, and a rear view backup cam optional. The steering wheel controls navigation, terrain and direct park assist. Paired with over 70 advanced safety and security features Jeep, once again, has its finger pressed firmly to the pulse of its consumer.

Jeep drivers love their Jeeps. Here’s a way to get in to what JD Power says is, “fun and feisty.” It’s the perfect introduction and Big Al’s always got a deal for the dolls. There’s a bunch on the lot and he’ll have you in and out in no time. It’s one of the reasons the dolls keep going back to visit him. Is it the discounts when you mention, “The Duchess sent me” or is it the in-and-out. The latter, my friends. I told him you’re on your way.

Take a look at online inventory here or give them a call 480-830-8001. Go on Friday and you’ll find me working in the lobby while I get an oil change, free. Oh yeah–there’s that free oil changes for life when you buy a car from the big guy. It’s a Valentine Tip from me to you.

Hearts and flowers and candy kisses. Nah–I’ll take the new car.
