If you’re searching for a Jeep dealership in Fort Worth, look no further than Frank Kent Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Located just outside the city limits in Ennis, Texas, Frank Kent CDJR represents the best place to buy a quality new or used Jeep. As one of the longest-lasting, family-run dealerships in all of Texas. We understand the area and the automotive needs of the people.

Now if you’ve already come this far, you probably are aware that Jeep is one of the oldest and most trusted car brands in the country. Born out of necessity during the second world war, Jeep has stood as an American institution for nearly 80 years. Their vehicles address a variety of needs, both professional and casual, injecting the Jeep degree of quality into numerous facets of daily life.

In case you haven’t read up on Jeep in the recent past, this article will take a look at what the company has been working on, what is currently setting them apart from the competition, and how they are looking to impact the automotive industry in the years to come.

Trail Rated Capability

As you shop for your new Jeep, you may want to keep your eyes peeled for the Jeep Brand Trail Rated badge. If you see the Trail Rated 4×4 insignia on your Jeep, you can purchase this vehicle knowing that it was tested in a series of grueling tests in five performance categories: traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation and ground clearance. This badge of certifications is meant to communicate with you, the buyer, that this Jeep is built and tested to the highest standards of off-road performance and capability.

The Trail Rated testing process begins at the state-of-the-art Jeep headquarters before heading out into the field. Jeep Brad Trail Rated 4×4 vehicles endure the hostile colds of Northern Michigan and the treacherous boulders of the Rubicon. Jeep’s drivers and engineers put these vehicles to the true test of endurance to ensure you’re getting the best possible product.

The Jeep vehicles that include the Brand Trail Rated badge include the Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Compass, and Renegade. So, make sure to look for the badge the next time you’re out shopping for your new Jeep and hit the trails with confidence.

Fuel Efficiency

In addition to their unadulterated capacity for raw performance and power, the Jeep lineup also places a large emphasis on sustainable design. As one of the premier car manufacturers in the world, Jeep takes its role very seriously and is consistently researching new, smarter ways to provide fuel-efficient designs.

In a recent article from Automotive News, author Richard Truett details the boost in overall fuel efficiency in Jeep’s 2019 lineup. A marked improvement over the previous years, it is extremely evident that the company is investing resources and taking great strides in the field of fuel economy.

An example of Jeep’s commitment to sustainability can be seen in their use of MultiAir technology on their 2.4L inline four-cylinder engine. Developed in the early 2000s, the MultiAir engine is a hydraulically-actuated system that enables cylinder by cylinder and stroke by stroke control of air intake. This greatly increases overall engine efficiently and allows your vehicle to process fuel in a far more responsible manner. For example, Jeep’s implementation of this particular engine on their Cherokee model results in a stunning 22 MPG city and 31 MPG highway, with an output of a zippy 180 horsepower.
