An undisputed off-road champion and a unique vehicle for everyday urban adventures, the new generation of the iconic Jeep® Wrangler offers excellent levels of comfort and superior driving dynamics. The all-new Jeep Wrangler is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that is ready to write a fresh, unprecedented chapter in the legendary history of the Jeep brand, a story which began in 1941.

It is with this clear objective that the iconic Jeep Wrangler has been completely renewed while remaining true to itself, with legendary off-road capabilities, authentic Jeep styling and advanced technology features.

The result is the most capable Wrangler ever, courtesy of unmatched technical contents, which, depending on the trim, include two advanced four-wheel drive, active, on-demand full time systems - Command-Trac and Rock Trac, plus Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited slip differential and electronic front sway-bar disconnect.

From the roughest terrain to more exclusive city streets, the all-new Jeep Wrangler is perfectly at ease, and delivers a more modern design, that stays true to the original, combined with more open-air freedom and advanced technology features in terms of safety and connectivity.

The fourth generation Jeep Wrangler is offered in three different trim levels: Sport, Sahara and Rubicon - all available in two- or four-door configuration, and in an all-new Overland pack, exclusively on the Sahara version, ensuring a more up-scale appearance.

In Europe, sales of the all-new Jeep Wrangler will start in September. In specific countries outside Europe (Russia and the Middle East), first units of the all-new Wrangler will be available starting from July.

Improved legendary go-anywhere Jeep 4x4 capability

Engineered to master the most challenging off-road tracks, Jeep Wrangler is the result of more than seventy-five years of leadership in the development of 4x4 systems. Two four-wheel drive systems are available: Command-Trac - on the Sport and Sahara trim levels, and Rock-Trac - standard on the Rubicon trim configuration, the most rugged and capable model for off-road driving. Both systems feature the new Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case for a continuous monitoring and management of the torque sent to front and rear wheels.

In details, Command-Trac four-wheel drive system features a two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, heavy-duty next-generation Dana front and rear axles with 3.45 rear axle ratio for the petrol version, and 3.73 for the diesel versions.

The system operates in 4 driving modes (plus Neutral):
  • 2H (Two-Wheel Drive High Range)
  • 4H AUTO (Full-Time Active On-Demand High Drive)
  • 4H Part-Time (Part-Time Four-Wheel Drive High Range)
  • N (Neutral)
  • 4L (Four-Wheel Drive Low Range)
The new Wrangler features shift on the fly technology which allows for shifting between 2WD and 4WD High range at speed up to 72km/h.

In normal driving conditions, Command-Trac operates in two-wheel drive (2WD) and transfers 100 percent of engine torque to the rear axle.
By shifting the dedicated lever to the 4WD High position, the driver can switch to four-wheel drive mode ideal when driving on slippery surfaces, such as sand, mud, snow or ice. 4H mode can be selected to operate either in the new Auto mode - ideal for a confident and comfortable use in any driving condition thanks to the continuous monitoring and management of the torque and the automatic engagement and disengagement of the 4WD as needed to maintain traction -, or in the 4H Part Time mode that ensures the torque is always evenly distributed between front and rear axles. To tackle extremely challenging and demanding off-road tracks, drivers can use the 4WD Low mode with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio that multiplies the engine torque.

An available Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential provides extra torque and grip during slippery, low-traction situations, such as driving over sand, gravel, snow or ice.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon models provide additional off-road prowess and are equipped with the Rock-Trac 4x4 system, featuring a two-speed transfer case with 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio and front and rear heavy-duty next-generation Dana 44 axles and Tru-Lok electric front- and rear-axle lockers to tackle the most extreme off-road trails.
The standard equipment also includes a front and rear axle ratio of 4.10 for the petrol models and 3.73 for the diesel versions, Tru-Lok electric front- and rear-axle lockers to tackle the most extreme off-road trails.

Rubicon models also offer added articulation and total suspension travel with help from an electronic sway-bar disconnect. This system allows drivers to disconnect the front sway bar to deliver additional wheel travel for traversing the toughest trails.
Wrangler Rubicon petrol models have a maximum and improved crawl ratio of 77.2:1 and of 70.3 on the Rubicon diesel versions - both of which makes scaling any obstacle on the trail easy.

Every Wrangler receives a "Trail Rated" badge that proves its legendary 4x4 capabilities. Trail Rated performance is the result of a series of heavy tests performed in the following areas: TRACTION, WATER FORDING, MANEUVERABILITY, ARTICULATION and GROUND CLEARANCE.

On the all-new Jeep Wrangler, the Trail Rated badge includes the following features:
  • Command-Trac 4x4 system with 2.72:1 crawl ratio standard on the Sport and Sahara models;
  • Rock-Trac 4x4 system with "4LO" ratio of 4:1 and Tru-Lok locking differentials standard on Rubicon models;
  • Skid plates and rear tow hooks;
  • Benchmark approach angle (2-door Rubicon) of 36.4 degrees, breakover angle of 25.8 degrees, departure angle of 30.8 degrees and ground clearance of more than 25 cm;
  • Up to 76 cm of water fording;
  • Up to 1,500 kg of towing capacity (2-door models) and 2,500 kg (4-door models).
Modern, authentic Wrangler design

The all-new Jeep Wrangler builds on a sculptural design aesthetic that is immediately recognizable with its traditional Jeep design cues: from the round headlights to the seven-slot grille; from the trapezoidal wheel arches to the visible hinges; from the folding windshield to the sport bar; from the removable doors to the open-air configurations with hard top or soft top.

Wrangler's new exterior design is bold and rugged with a wide stance and lowered beltline with larger windows for better outward visibility, especially out on extreme trails.

The Jeep design team gave the legendary seven-slot grille a more modern look that now shows both of the outer grille slats intersecting with the headlights, paying homage to the legendary CJ model. The top of the keystone-shaped grille has been gently swept back for improved aerodynamics.

In the Sahara and Rubicon versions, the available headlights and LED fog lights feature crisp white lighting and add to the Wrangler's distinctive look. The daytime running lights are positioned on the front of the trapezoidal wheel flares. From behind, traditional square tail lamps feature available LED lighting.

The windshield is tilted to an optimal degree to improve aerodynamics, and features a new four bolt design at the top of the windshield's frame to allow the windshield to fold down quickly and easily. The new header bar now connects the A-pillars and remains in place even when the windshield is folded down. This allows the rear-view mirror can remain in place even when the windshield has been folded away. Two-piece body-color fender flares with a black lower insert are standard on Sahara.

New lightweight, high-strength aluminum doors feature the size of the Torx bit tool size stamped directly onto the hinge to easily remove the doors.

All Wrangler models now feature body-colored sport bars, which are welded to the body and feature integrated grab handles.

Jeep Wrangler is a unique vehicle thanks to the several combinations offered to owners to enjoy open-air adventure, and features different windshield and top solutions that allow customers to choose multiple configuration possibilities.

As the only authentic full open-air 4x4 SUV available on the market, the all-new Jeep Wrangler offers various top combinations to ensure even more open-air freedom.

The all-new, easy-to-use Sky One-Touch powertop strengthens Wrangler's promise of utility and adventure by allowing occupants to retract the full-length open canvas roof with a push of a button.
It will join two additional roof configurations available on the all-new Wrangler: a new Zipperless Premium Sunrider soft top and a lighter and easy-to-use Freedom Top, a removable, three-panel hard top.
Specifically, the Zipperless Premium Sunrider soft top has been improved by adding two additional bows to manage the fabric. This new design helps to quieten wind noise and allows for easier access to partial and full open top positions.

The modular Freedom Top hard top features an easy to use three-piece structure and has been improved with the introduction of lighter Freedom panels and improved latches that enable a quicker removal and installation of the hard top. Depending on the version, Freedom Top is available either as a body-color or black hard top.

Last but not least, the position of the spare wheel support on the rear of the Wrangler is also new, as it has been lowered by approximately 300 mm, for better visibility of both driver and passengers.

An exclusive Overland pack is available to provide a more upscale appearance to the Sahara trim. It offers unique 18-inch aluminum wheels, body color grille with Bright accent throats and headlamp bezels, body color hard spare tire cover and Overland logo. The unique exterior of the Overland pack is complemented by dedicated leather interior and LED lights.

A wide variety of wheels designs is available on the all-new Wrangler. The Sport version rides on standard 17" polished painted aluminum wheels and two optional 17" aluminum wheel designs - with models outside Europe featuring standard fully painted 17" steel wheels. The Sahara version rides on standard 18" aluminum wheels and optional 18" wheels featuring the unique finish available with the sophisticated Overland Pack. The all-capable Rubicon sports standard 17" painted polished aluminum wheels with 32-inch BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain tires and optional 17" aluminum wheels with dedicated design and a black polished finish. These configurations may change according to markets needs and specifics.



The all-new Jeep Wrangler will be available in 10 different exterior colors: Black, Firecracker Red, Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Granite Crystal Metallic, Hellayella, Ocean Blue, Punk'n Metallic, Mojito and Sting Gray.

New interiors offering comfort and functionality

The interior of the new Jeep Wrangler combines authentic styling, versatility, functionality and intuitive feature use, in addition to a more stylish and comfortable cabin, thanks to the use of high-quality materials and finishes.

The heritage-inspired center stack features a clean, sculpted form that compliments the horizontal dashboard design and sports a finish dictated by the model choice. A hand-wrapped instrument panel features a soft-touch surface with accent stitching on Wrangler Sahara models.

Functional features, including climate and volume control knobs, Engine Stop Start (ESS) control and media charging and connectivity ports are all sculpted for quick recognition and are easily within reach of the front-seat occupants. Inboard and outboard circular HVAC vents are surrounded by a platinum chrome bezel for a precise and premium yet rugged appearance.

Jeep functionality and versatility are celebrated in the completely restyled center console which houses the gear shift selection, transfer case and parking brake. Real bolts featured on the shifter, grab handles and frame the infotainment screen highlight genuine construction methods.
Making its debut on the all-new Jeep Wrangler, a push-button starter, featuring a weather-proof surround is easily located within the driver's reach. The fabric or leather upholstered seats feature accent stitching, and now offer adjustable bolster and lumbar support. Available comfort options include heated front seats and steering wheel.

The driver and front passenger vinyl-wrapped door trim panels are soft to the touch, and feature lengthened arm rests for better comfort.

The instrument cluster features a 3.5-inch or 7-inc thin-film transistor (TFT) information LED display. The 7-inch LED display, offered as standard on the Sahara and Rubicon versions, is full-color and allows the driver to configure information in more than 100 ways. Integrated buttons on the steering wheel control audio, voice, and speed functions and allow the driver to keep their hands on the wheel at all times.
The central console also features a 7.0-inch or an available 8.4-inch touchscreens (both with Android auto Car Play connectivity) - the latter is the largest and most advanced UconnectTM display ever offered on a Wrangler. The fourth-generation UconnectTM system enhances the user interface and system performance with quicker start up times and improved screen resolution. A 5.0-inch touchscreen is offered as standard on Wrangler Sport, for markets outside Europe. Directly below the touchscreen are functional features such as climate and volume control knobs and media connectivity ports.
Two USB ports up front and two in reach of occupants in the back seat connect to the media center. Standard 12-volt accessory outlets are located throughout the all-new Wrangler and a 230-volt AC outlet is also available.

Jeep Wrangler has always stood out for its functionality and the ability to grant his customers the possibility to enjoy any adventure in the utmost ease. The all-new Wrangler makes no exception, and offers a host of clever storage solutions, durable mesh pockets that extend the entire length of the doors, cup holders and numerous phone storage areas. The glove box is now damped and like the center console, can be locked to safely secure valuables when the top is down. An under-floor storage area behind the rear seat provides room to secure small items out of sight. The available all-new Trail Rail cargo management system allows easy access to the contents in the cargo area and provides additional storage options to organize and secure cargo. There is also a functional new screws and bolts organizer at the bottom of the trunk, to store away individual screws, and a tool kit with instructions inside the central armrest. Both tool kit and organizer were designed to stock screws and bolts of the Wrangler's tops, doors and foldable windshield when driving open-air, and underline how everything onboard the iconic Jeep has been engineered for easy, practical usage.
One of Wrangler's unique characteristics are the entirely washable interiors and the protective rubber cover for the infotainment system screen, that allows easy clean up in complete peace of mind.

Reliable body-on-frame design at the heart of the legendary Jeep capabilities

Thanks to its body-on-frame design and featuring a superbly engineered five-link suspension system, Wrangler delivers benchmark 4x4 capability, with improved on-road driving dynamics, passenger safety and a more comfortable driving experience. The use of light-weight, high-strength aluminum closures - including doors, door hinges, fender flares, windshield frame and magnesium swing gate - contributed to reduce the overall vehicle weight, improving its fuel efficiency.
To protect critical vehicle components while on the trail - including the fuel tank, transfer case and automatic transmission oil pan - Wrangler employs four skid plates and bars. Rubicon models benefit from the use of heavy gauge tubular steel rock rails to curtail potential body damage inflicted while out on the trail.
All-new Wrangler' suspension have been tuned to optimize on-road handling and ride comfort without sacrificing off-road capability. Wrangler continues to utilize the proven five-link coil suspension configuration. Front suspension features a lateral control arm and four longitudinal control arms, while the five-link rear suspension features two upper and two lower forged steel control arms for longitudinal control, and a track bar for lateral axle control.

New powertrains for the all-new Jeep Wrangler

The Wrangler engine range is enhanced with the introduction of two new engines - the 2.2-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel and the 2.0-litre turbocharged inline four-cylinder petrol engine. Both join the 3.6-litre V-6 Pentastar engine upgraded for the new Wrangler and already available in its engine offer.

Two Abarth 124 compete in the Rallye Aveyron Rouergue Occitanie in France

  • The Milano Racing Team sends two crews to the fifth stage of the French championship.
  • Young Nicolas Ciamin (FRA) looks to repeat his successful R-GT+ performance of the Rallye Lyon-Charbonniere.
  • Team mate and gentleman driver Richard Bourcier (FRA), a classic car pilot, makes his rally début.
Two Abarth 124 rally from the Milano Racing Team are competing this weekend in the Rallye Aveyron Rouergue Occitanie, the fifth stage of the French Championship, starting in Rodez on Friday 6 July. The cars are entrusted to the young Nicolas Ciamin (FRA), paired with Antony Vilanova (FRA) and to gentleman driver Richard Bourcier (FRA) and his navigator Jean-Marc Ducousso (FRA).

After his decisive win at the Rallye Lyon-Charbonnières, Ciamin had to skip the next stage, the Rallye des Vosges, because it clashed with the Italia-Sardegna World Rally, but the Abarth 124 rally still won in the capable hands of Raphael Astier (FRA) and Frédéric Vauclaire (FRA).

His partner on this occasion will be Bourcier, a gentleman driver who regularly races his Lancia Delta Integrale in classic car rallies. He raced on S2000 cars in the past, achieving particularly great results in this race. It will be his début on a modern Abarth 124 rally, one of the most spectacular cars in this speciality racing. It is as spectacular as it is effective, since the Milano Racing Team has already won three times this year, including the Astier stage of the Tour de Corse, part of the FIA R-GT Cup, the "World Championship" for Grand Tourer cars.

The Rallye Aveyron Rouergue Occitanie has two stages. The first starts in Rodez at 9.00 am on Friday 6 July, and ends at 10.18 pm that evening. The second race goes from 9.00 am to 6.58 pm on Saturday 7 July. The 653 km racing course is entirely on asphalt, and entails 209 km of time racing, split over 12 special trials.

Alfa Romeos of the past and present take to the stage at Goodwood


  • Stelvio Quadrifoglio makes its United Kingdom debut at the twenty-fifth "Festival of Speed 2018".
  • By its side will be the showcar of the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team currently competing in the Formula 1 FIA World Championship with Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc.
  • The "Festival of Speed" would not be complete without the Nürburgring Edition Giulia Quadrifoglio "NRING" and Stelvio Quadrifoglio "NRING" special series, celebrating the two cars' records.
  • The Alfa Romeo stand is a showcase of the brand's excellence, displaying the very best of current output: Giulia Veloce Ti and Giulietta Veloce also give an object lesson in performance and sporty looks.

From 12 to 15 July, the English county of West Sussex will host the "Goodwood Festival of Speed", one of the most prestigious events in the international motorsports calendar. The Festival will also be attended by fine historic Alfa Romeo brand cars, as well as current production models, confirming the unbreakable bond between the icons of the past and the models that embody the brand's new paradigm today. What's more, the event will include the United Kingdom debut of the right-hand drive version of the fastest SUV in its class: Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, to be put through its paces on the famous Goodwood hill on Thursday.

Racing DNA: the return to Formula 1 and the Nürburgring Edition special series



Not just Stelvio Quadrifoglio: on the Alfa Romeo stand, the many fans flocking to the event will also be able to admire the best of today's production, as well as the showcar of the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team, currently competing in the FIA World Championship.
Also on display will be two magnificent limited edition models, available in the EMEA region in just 108 units per model, recalling the brand's 108th birthday, celebrated on 24 June. They are the Nürburgring Edition Giulia Quadrifoglio "NRING" and Stelvio Quadrifoglio "NRING" special series, celebrating the two cars' records set on the famous German circuit.

Giulia Quadrifoglio "NRING" and Stelvio Quadrifoglio "NRING" represent the pinnacle of the brand's excellence in terms of technical contents, performance and style and are powered by the 510HP 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo engine. Stelvio, holder of the record for its class exploited its 600 Nm of torque, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and top speed of 283 km/h to cover the 20.832 km of the Nordschleife in 7 minutes, 51.7 seconds.
The two cars also offer a satisfying and exclusive customer experience, also including a driving experience on the Nürburgring, intended for collectors and the most loyal customers who will take the wheel of these concentrates of supreme performance and technology. In fact, as well as the Quadrifoglio trim level features, the "NRING" models provide a special "Welcome kit" and a full specs outfit.



In addition to the features of excellence that characterise all Quadrifoglio cars, the "NRING" special series is further upgraded by carbon-ceramic brakes, Sparco® racing seats with red stitching and carbon shell structure, automatic transmission knob with carbon fibre insert, and leather and Alcantara steering wheel, also with carbon fibre inserts. The front badge and the rearview mirror caps are made of carbon fibre, like the side skirt inserts. Not to mention tinted windows, Adaptive Cruise Control, the Harman Kardon premium audio package, and the AlfaTM Connect 3D Nav infotainment system with 8.8'' screen, Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM and DAB. Giulia premieres the new bare carbon roof, and Stelvio is equipped with electrically operated panoramic roof. Both have mats with red logo developed by Mopar.
To conclude, both cars have the original Circuit Grey livery, only available on this limited edition.

To celebrate the birth of the new limited edition the NRING versions will have specific "Authenticity Certification" issued by FCA Heritage, the department that promotes the historic record of the FCA Group's Italian brands. The decision to provide these special editions with "Authenticity Certification", normally only issued for historic cars, immediately gives them genuine "Instant Classic" status.

The best of current production

Alongside the Nürburgring Edition special series, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio in Vulcano Black livery, the Giulia Veloce Ti and the Giulietta Veloce. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce Ti, in Competizione Red livery, equipped with 280 HP turbo petrol powerplant combined with 8-speed automatic transmission and Q4 all-wheel drive, is a fine embodiment of the technical and automotive excellence of the Giulia range. The time-honoured code "Ti", standing for "Turismo internazionale", has always been reserved to the most lavishly equipped, leading-edge, extreme versions. The Giulia Ti is the most exclusive version in the range, successfully combining the Giulia Veloce's sporty flavour with an alluring style, a rich standard outfit and the very latest technology, a near sister to the Quadrifoglio, with which it shares several stylistic features. Impressively, the Giulia's style recently received the "Compasso d'Oro ADI", the world's most highly respected design award.

The Giulietta Veloce is the sportiest version in the Giulietta range: it is fitted with the 240 HP 1750 Turbo Petrol engine and TCT automatic transmission. With metallic Misano Blue paintwork, this high-performing version is identified, on the outside, by the sporty bumpers with red Alfa inserts, the glossy anthracite finishes on the handles, fog light surrounds, mirror caps and radiator grill "V", the electronic sun roof with large glazed section, the oversize Brembo braking system with red calipers, the burnished finish 5-spoke 18" alloy wheels and the larger-sized twin exhaust tips. This strongly sporty personality is also reflected on the inside, with its sporty leather and Alcantara seats with integral head restraint, contrasting red seams and sporty cut leather steering-wheel.

The FCA Heritage collection

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of the world's largest outdoor automotive events, and this year it celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary in the lovely West Sussex countryside. More than 600 cars and motorbikes, retracing the amazing history of motoring and motor cycling, will be taking part in the event, with some of these sports' most legendary personalities, as well as world-famous celebrities. The Festival would not be complete without FCA Heritage, the Group department dedicated to conserving and promoting the historic legacy of FCA's Italian brands, which takes part with two Alfa Romeo gems from its collection, representing the unbreakable bond connecting a great history to a great future. Visitors will be able to admire two models normally on show at the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese (Milan): the 1750 GT Am and the 1900 Sport Spider.

Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Am


  • Maximum power: 220 HP
  • Top speed: 240 km/h
  • Year of construction: 1970
The 1750 GT Am was type-approved for GT racing, on the basis of the 1750 GT Veloce version built for the USA market - hence the "Am" for "America". Unlike the model sold in Europe, the 1750 GTV - from which the GT Am was born - featured the Spica indirect mechanical injection system, which complied with American emissions standards and was also well suited to racing. In contrast with the Giulia Sprint GTA and the later GTA 1300 Junior, the "GT Am" had steel body panelling and riveted fibreglass wheel arch flares, giving the car a very aggressive look. There were also major changes to the engine, giving it a power of 220 HP at 7500 rpm to propel the GT Am to a speed of 240 km/h.

The GT Am achieved great success in the European GT Championship when the car's top driver, the "Flying Dutchman" Toine Hezemans, won the Drivers' Title in 1970.


Alfa Romeo 1900 Sport Spider


  • Maximum power: 138 HP
  • Top speed: 220 km/h
  • Year of construction: 1954
Only two 1900 Sport Spider cars were ever built, and the only one to have survived is from the FCA Heritage collection, with bodywork designed by Bertone. It was constructed under the supervision of Orazio Satta and Giuseppe Busso. The car's mechanicals originate from the "1900 Super Sprint": the twin-cam engine had the same cast iron engine block as the coupé, but the displacement was raised to close to the two litre limit (1,997.4 cc) for racing purposes. The compression ratio was boosted to 9:1, dry sump lubrication was added and power was increased to 138 HP. The car was equipped with double wishbone front suspensions with a De Dion rear axle, the solution adopted twenty years later on the "Alfetta" sedan.

Jeep® Wrangler, sponsor of the Rolling Stones No Filter Tour, in Warsaw for tour finale



  • The partnership between the British band and the legendary SUV brand began in 2014.
  • Rolling Stones concert-goers have since enjoyed the Jeep® experience on each of the band's European tours.
  • Latest 'Rolling Stones - No Filter' 2018 tour has featured the new Jeep Wrangler.
The Jeep-sponsored 'Rolling Stones - No Filter' 2018 tour will come to a thrilling climax in Warsaw, Poland, this Sunday after 14 sell-out dates across the UK, Ireland, France, Germany and the Czech Republic.

Jeep has supported all of the band's European tours since 2014's '14 On Fire' spectacular. This year, the 'Rolling Stones - No Filter' tour saw the pair hit the road together again, with the Jeep brand - makers of the most awarded SUV range ever - building an exciting brand experience to wow fans at every venue.

The new Jeep Wrangler, the fourth generation of the world's most capable off-roader, epitomizes Jeep's 'Go Anywhere, Do Anything' spirit.

The new Wrangler, which is just as at ease on city streets as it is off the beaten path, brings together Jeep's legendary off-road prowess, with superior comfort, authentic style and state-of-the-art technology. The result is the most capable Wrangler ever, courtesy of unmatched technical contents, which, depending on the trim, include two advanced four-wheel drive, active, on-demand full time systems - Command-Trac and Rock Trac, plus Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited slip differential and electronic front sway-bar disconnect.

The Stones revolutionized rock music before going on to become one of the most enduring and popular bands in the world. Jeep, meanwhile, is the legendary global SUV brand that for more than 75 years has remained the most authentic expression of motoring freedom and adventure.

This synergy and shared spirit has been underlined through the 'Rolling Stones - No Filter' tour by the crowds' appreciation of the special Jeep Compass stage - one of the many brand activities organized throughout the tour.
