Badlands Off-Road Park

2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon at Badlands Off Road Park

Badlands Off-Road Park in Attica, Indiana, is something like heaven on earth for off-road aficionados. It’s an incredible facility that spans 800-plus acres and encompasses a broader variety of off-road terrain than you’d ever expect to find in the Midwest. There are sand dunes, forested areas, streams for fording, several types of gravel (part of the park was previously a quarry), loose rocks and solid-rock trails, and lots of good ol’ dirt and mud. There are trails that are easy enough for children, trails that will challenge the most-experienced off-roader, and trails at most every level in between those extremes.

2015 Jeep Renegade

As its surname would imply, Jeep’s Renegade is more off-road capable than most any other “Cute Ute” competitor, yet it’s still quite at home on the street. With its nifty My Sky retractable/removable dual-pane sunroof, our turbocharged/manual-transmission/4×4 test vehicle tipped the price scales at $25,760.

2015 Jeep Renegade

Jeep joins the rapidly growing “Mini SUV” market with the Renegade, which will start at about $19,000 when it goes on sale in late February or early March.

First SpinYou can’t accuse Jeep of ignoring its legacy.

While other automakers seem to continually pull new model names (or letters) out of thin air, Jeep has recycled some well-worn monikers for its latest models. For instance, “Cherokee” first appeared in the 1970s on a full-size SUV, was adopted for the company’s early ‘80s midsize SUV, and then was dusted off for a new compact SUV introduced last year. Now another blast from Jeep’s storied past has been revived for the company’s newest entry, which joins the rapidly expanding “mini-SUV” segment.

2015 Renegade

Jeep’s new Renegade is a full seven inches shorter than its Patriot sibling, but there’s no indication the subcompact SUV will cost less than the $15,999 base price of the compact one. It will, however, likely boast stronger EPA figures. Renegade is due to go on sale late this year.

GENEVA — You’ve undoubtedly already assessed the photo above, and perhaps “cute” isn’t the first word that popped to mind. But the new Renegade, due in showrooms late this year, certainly fits the Cute Ute category.

2018 Mecum Chicago Auction

Collector-car auctions sell plenty of high-dollar vehicles, but they also offer more-accessible classics. This 1963 Buick Riviera sold for less than the cost of the average 2018 Buick Encore subcompact crossover.

Every October, the Mecum Auctions road show rolls into Chicagoland for a weekend-long event that takes over the Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. Like any of the major-league televised auctions, the 2018 Mecum Chicago shindig had its share of big-ticket featured lots. A 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo originally owned by legendary Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton was the star of this year’s show—it sold for $324,500, topping the list of results for the event.
