Travellers and other users of the ever busy Murtala Muhammed local terminal 2 in (MMA2) Lagos are daily becoming excited by the display of the Jeep displayed at the terminal by Kewalram Chanrai, sole distributor of FCA brands in Nigeria.

This is in a move by the dealership to create public awareness about the market presence and tattributes of the FCA brands in the country.

Hence, the FCA brands comprising Jeep, Fiat, Dodge, Dodge, Chrysler, Ram, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, amongst others are currently in the eyes of the public following the takeover of the brand’s dealership by Kewalram Chanrai group recently known for its solid pedigree in auto distributing and after-sales in Nigeria.

The Jeep Wrangler comes in a series of compact and mid-size (Wrangler Unlimited and Wrangler 2-door JL) four-wheel drive off-road sport utility vehicles (SUVs), manufactured by Jeep since 1986, and currently in its fourth generation.

Known for its toughness and rigidity, the SUV, once taken as only meant for off the road terrain, has metamorphosed into an urban vehicle that can adapt to all kinds of terrain be it city or country side.

The model which can easily adapt from being a work vehicle to a leisure accompli, has won a lot of admirers over the years that it has become a household name needing little review about its offerings.

It comes in a full time four wheel drive system, with a 7-inch touch screen display that enhances its aesthetics and promotes one of its major concerns, which is-safety. Owners can also availed of the use of a park view/rear back-up camera, complemented with air bags fitted round the award winning vehicle.

Different occupants of the vehicle do not only enjoy the powerful air conditioning system the vehicle offers,  but also have the automatic temperature controls to play around with.

Because of the need to ensure maximum comfort for all occupants irrespective of the terrain, the Wrangler comes with heavy duty suspension and shock absorbers.

Other specs in this vehicle are almost endless, but a few more that can be mentioned are traction control that keeps the driver focussed and in lane, deep tint sun screen glass, premium lighting among a host of other amenities.

Apart from Nigeria, only recently, readers of one of the most famous Russian motoring magazines, Za Rulyom (Behind the Wheel), named the Jeep Wrangler as winner in the premium crossovers and SUV category of its Grand Prix awards, which crowned the best new cars of 2018.

According to more than 25,000 readers who took part in the voting, the best newcomer in the premium crossovers and SUVs category was the Jeep Wrangler. It vehicle was appraised through online voting across three criteria including equipment, design and practicality.

And because the Jeep has consistently been associated with laurels, Juventus the soccer team with the Jeep brand on its jerseys has beaten its own record by winning the Italian championship for the eighth time in a row, with five days to go before the end of the Italian football season.
