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.
Class: Subcompact Crossover
Miles Driven: 324
Fuel Used: 15.0 gallons
You 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.
Jeep displayed two concept vehicles at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, both based on the soon-to-be-released Renegade compact SUV.
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.
While styling, performance, and rarity have been the traditional tickets to collectibility, vehicles that offer features—styling or otherwise—that are monuments to their era or simply aren’t likely to reappear also have a shot. It’s why we believe cars of the Fifties are so treasured today; their chrome, tall fins, and sheer mass so perfectly characterized the jet-aged optimism of the time, and it’s almost certain their likes will ever be seen again.
