What Makes a Jeep a Jeep?
Jeeps are rooted in the history of this country, owing their very existence to the needs of the military in World War II. More than 100 automakers were solicited by the US Army in 1940 to build a light reconnaissance vehicle that could tackle any terrain. The original specifications that the Army was asking for were so demanding that no company could meet them, but after a couple of redesigns, Willys-Overland won the contract to supply the Army with its Jeep design.
Of course, at that time, it wasn't called a Jeep––that nickname came later. The first models used by the Army were referred to as Willys MA and Willys MB. Strangely enough, the origin of the name "Jeep" remains a mystery, though many Jeep lovers support the idea that it came from the Army designation "GP" to refer to it as a "General Purpose" vehicle. Wherever the name came from, the Jeep was so beloved by soldiers in the war that one was actually awarded a Purple Heart for the several bullet holes it suffered during operations. After the war, the returning soldiers wanted Jeeps of their own, and so the first CJ or "Civilian Jeep" hit the market, launching the Jeep brand we know and love today.
The Jeep brand has had numerous owners over the last 80 years. The current owner is Stellantis, which also owns Chrysler and Wagoneer––the other brands we sell here at The Faricy Boys. We have a sizable inventory of Jeeps at any given time, including the Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, Compass, and more. We even have a selection of Jeep's newest 4xe hybrid models, which provide environmentally-friendly off-road performance. But we're not only here to sell cars––there are plenty of dealerships that just sell cars to move models and make a profit.
Right now, we have an incredible selection of Jeeps. The Grand Cherokee is one of the hottest SUVs on the market, offering an unbeatable blend of luxury and adventure. With powerful V8 engine options, cutting-edge technology features, and Jeep's trademark 4x4 performance, the Grand Cherokee is Jeep's best-selling model for a reason. Of course, if you want the pure Jeep experience, then nothing can beat a Jeep Wrangler. This is the model that built the brand, and heading off-road to explore Colorado in a Wrangler will give you a new love for adventure. While every Wrangler is Trail Rated and comes with 4x4 standard, you can always take things up a notch with the incredible Wrangler Rubicon and its unmatched off-road performance.
We believe in the Jeep brand and everything that comes with it. The Jeep Wrangler has routinely been noted as having one of the best resale values in its class and is often judged one of the best cars overall by organizations and publications such as Kelley Blue Book. As long-term members of the Colorado Springs community, we value our neighbors and customers, which is why we are proud to sell these vehicles. We know that not only are you getting a safe and reliable ride, but you are putting your money into a vehicle that retains its value better than many others and makes for a great opportunity to resell in the future or pass it along to a son or daughter.
2022 Grand Cherokee
With classic good looks and a great reputation, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the flexible and reliable SUV you've been looking for. There's a reason drivers keep coming back to Jeep year after year––they know a good thing when they see it.
Living up to its name, the 2022 Grand Cherokee is one of Jeep's most popular SUVs for a reason. The SUV has been designed to make the most of its space with available third-row seating in the new Grand Cherokee L model. A compatible and spacious cabin means there isn't a bad seat in the house, no matter which row you're seated in.
Offered for 2022 is the 4xe plug-in hybrid model that makes the Grand Cherokee more efficient than ever before. Alternatively, the classic V8 engine means when you go with the Grand Cherokee, you're getting best-in-class maximum towing capacity, which tops off at 7,200 lbs. Add to that the choice between three different 4x4 systems, and you're ready to go.
If you need your vehicle to adapt to changing road conditions at the flip of a switch, the 2022 Grand Cherokee allows you to easily switch between Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, or Mud/Sand modes. The off-roading capabilities of the Grand Cherokee mean that when you need a refresh and want to get away for a weekend of camping and hiking at Lake Pueblo or climb Pikes Peak, the Grand Cherokee will have all the space and strength you need to get you there and home again.
It's hard to find a more iconic Jeep than the Wrangler, with its legacy dating back to World War II and Willys Overland. The 2022 Wrangler continues that legacy with its body-on-frame design, award-winning powertrain lineup, and exceptional four-wheel drive systems. Together, these features make the 2022 Wrangler the most capable and most recognized off-road vehicle in the world.
"Tried, tested, Trail Rated, and true," according to Jeep, the 2022 Wrangler continues to evolve by blending jaw-dropping capability with a host of modern technology. The 2022 lineup sees the addition of an expansive 8.4-inch touchscreen display on trims like the Sahara and Rubicon, while the Sport and Sport S now come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen display. You'll also find plenty of convenience features with the Sahara and Rubicon featuring Remote Proximity Keyless Entry, which is optional on other trims and eliminates the need to constantly dig for your keys to lock and unlock the doors.
If you're looking for real power and capability, look no further than the 2022 Wrangler Rubicon 392. A true road warrior both on and off the pavement, the Rubicon 392 is the only Wrangler equipped with a 6.4L HEMI V8 engine under the hood. As expected, the HEMI roars to life to deliver 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque with a launch from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
The Trail Rated badge earns its place on the Rubicon 392, with the icon's power translating exceptionally well long after the pavement ends. This is thanks to features like the electronic sway bar disconnect and the FOX aluminum-bodied shocks that improve the Wrangler 392's articulation, maneuverability, and handling. Whether you're navigating the Rubicon Trail, exploring one of the trails right here in Colorado, or traveling at highway speeds, the Wrangler 392 will meet and exceed all your expectations.
The toughest of the tough is back for 2022. The Jeep Gladiator is one of the biggest names out there when it comes to off-roading. This Jeep truck is a multifunctional workhorse that offers drivers the strength, flexibility, and off-roading features drivers have come to expect from an iconic brand like Jeep.
Jeep figures, why mess with a good thing? So while the Jeep Gladiator didn't receive any major changes for 2022, it really didn't need any. The off-roading beast comes equipped with all the features drivers need to get off the beaten trail and out into nature.
Designed to take on the toughest conditions, drivers have the option of a 3.6L Pentastar V6 or 3.0L EcoDiesel engine. The standard 3.6L Pentastar puts out up to 285 hp and 260lb-ft of torque. If diesel is more your thing, the 3.0L Ecodiesel doesn't disappoint, with 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque.
If you want to take your adventures to a whole new level, the Gladiator Rubicon is ready when you are. This truck is truly a master of the terrain. With a ground clearance of 11.1 inches, it's easy to move over rocks, branches, and anything else that stands in your way. Or let your Gladiator take you through up to 31.5 inches of water, thanks to the model's high air intake and special seeling. The traction and maneuverability of the Gladiator mean you'll be able to take on tight bends in the trail with ease, all the while keeping your wheels on the ground for ultimate traction control, no matter the terrain.
If you're looking for a truck that can do it all and more, the Jeep Gladiator makes light work of sandy, rocky, or muddy terrain. Whether you like to spend weekends traversing the quiet trails of the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest or looking to take the scenic route along Lower Gold Camp Road, the rugged design and high performance of the Gladiator means when adventure calls, you'll be ready to answer.
2022 is a year of remarkable change for the Compass with a redesign that ushers the SUV into a new generation of innovation and modernity. Promising to be the most connected and technically-advanced Compass yet, the 2022 Compass is designed with versatility in mind as an SUV that's spacious and capable, powerful and efficient, innovative and affordable. This is what it means to let the Compass lead the way.
In the 2022 Compass, any journey is an adventure, especially with the SUV equipped with Jeep's four-wheel drive capability and the exclusive Selec-Terrain traction management system. Features like the newly standard Active Lane Management semi-autonomous driving system ensures every adventure is enjoyable and actively reduces driver fatigue and stress by helping you navigate the road ahead. Doing so is also more enjoyable for you and your passengers, thanks to the Compass' updated suspension and steering, which improve the Compass' handling, ride quality, and responsiveness.
Does the 2022 Compass live up to Jeep's promise to be the most connected and technologically advanced yet? Undoubtedly. The Compass' all-new 10.1-inch center touchscreen display is home to Jeep's renowned Uconnect 5 infotainment system that gives you access to your smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The available 10.25-inch frameless full-color digital cluster display transforms the driver's seat into a digital cockpit while backseat passengers enjoy plenty of perks like the Compass' first-ever heated rear seats.
The Compass' long list of safety and driver-assist features also delivers on Jeep's promise. Offering the most available safety features in its class, the Compass features over 75 advanced safety and security features, including tools that range from Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection to Full-Speed Collision Warning with Active Brake and Pedestrian/Cyclist Detection. These tools actively extend your visibility around the Compass and minimize the potential for collisions, giving you peace of mind on any and every road.
The timeless 2022 Jeep Cherokee is the perfect combination of technology and ingenuity, all wrapped up in a stylish frame. The eye-catching Cherokee remains much the same for 2022, but if it's not broke, don't fix it. The Cherokee offers a great modern design along with the ultimate comfort, all without sacrificing overall performance. No matter where you find yourself, either in the hustle and bustle of downtown Colorado Springs, breezing down the freeway, or taking some time off to take in the breathtaking scenery of Mt. Rosa, the Cherokee fits in where you need it to.
The 2022 Jeep Cherokee can be had with two great engine choices. Jeep's popular 3.2L V6 Pentastar engine delivers 271 hp with 239 lb-ft of torque. The second option is a 2.0L turbocharged engine, which means you can expect 70 hp and an impressive 295 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0L engine also increases your fuel economy, getting the Compass up to 23 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. But when it comes to hauling, opt for the 3.2L Pentastar engine with its 4,500 lbs of towing power to get the most out of your Cherokee.
Looking for a fun and sporty ride to get you through the week and on to the weekend? The 2022 Jeep Renegade was created to be as spontaneous and as adventurous as its drivers. The Renegade has had a small handful of changes made to it for the latest model year, mainly concerning the Sport and Latitude trims, which had minor tweaks to the exterior design. Speaking of trims, the all-new Altitude trim offers a stylish edge with glossy black badges and matching grille and details, plus a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen.
Don't let the petite Renegade fool you. After all, it's called Renegade for a reason. The SUV is a workhorse when it comes to off-roading adventures. The Renegade Trailhawk is Trail Rated, which means it passed a rigorous set of tests in order to earn its badge and wear it with pride. When you get behind the wheel of a Renegade Trailhawk, expect increased traction control, tight and precise maneuverability, and impressive water fording abilities you never would have expected from a subcompact SUV. Only Jeep could put so much power into such a small vehicle.
The available 1.3L Turbo engine puts out 177 hp and 210 lb-ft of torque, making this SUV a compact powerhouse capable of meeting the demands of the road ahead. So if you want to take your favorite toy with you out to Lake Pueblo this weekend, the Renegade is more than happy to help with the available Trailer Tow Package that's capable of pulling up to 2,000 lbs.
The most off-road capable truck ever built by Jeep, the 2021 Gladiator is proof that legends never die. The Gladiator is Jeep's answer to drivers looking for an off-road warrior that's also a capable and versatile workhorse. With its body-on-frame design, functional bed, and exclusive off-road components, the Gladiator is everything you need in a truck and everything you want in an off-road adventurer.
Designed to meet every demand of the road, the 2021 Gladiator delivers a wide range of power from its award-winning 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine to its 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. The Pentastar V6 is no stranger to the Jeep lineup and continues to impress by churning out 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. For diesel-lovers, the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 is now available across nearly the entire 2021 Gladiator lineup and delivers 260 horses and 442 lb-ft of torque.
For the ultimate off-road adventurer and on-road workhorse, Jeep delivers with the Gladiator Mojave. A powerhouse on wheels, the Mojave is the first-ever Desert Rated Jeep. That rating, like Jeep's Trail Rated badge, had to be earned. Jeep put the Mojave through the harshest desert conditions to measure its traction, desert prowess, ride control, stability, maneuverability, and ground clearance. So, how did it perform?
The Mojave aced the test without breaking a sweat thanks to its high-performance FOX shocks and the industry's first-ever FOX front hydraulic jounce bumpers that optimize its handling, maneuverability, and ride quality. The Mojave's 33-inch tires add to its ground clearance, while its rear locking differential ensures traction on any terrain. High speeds aren't a problem, thanks to the Mojave's Off-Road+ button inside the cab. With the push of the button, the Mojave automatically adjusts the throttle, transmission, traction control, and shift points for optimal performance at high speeds on desert terrain. You won't find any other truck in the segment with this level of high-speed capability or a Desert Rated badge, which is exactly as Jeep intended.
The 2021 Renegade lives up to its reputation as Jeep's free-spirited SUV that's always ready for adventure. Adventure is always a possibility in the Renegade thanks to Jeep's legendary four-wheel drive systems and the Selec-Terrain traction management system that optimizes how the SUV performs based on the terrain at hand. A quick selection between Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, and Rock modes, the latter of which is only available on the Trailhawk, finetunes the Renegade's traction control and throttle response for the terrain at hand to give you the confidence you need behind the wheel.
That confidence extends even further in models like the Renegade Trailhawk with its best-in-class Trail Rated four-wheel drive capability. Equipped with Jeep's Active Drive Low four-wheel drive system, the Renegade Trailhawk offers 8.7 inches of ground clearance and up to 19 inches of water fording capability. Venturing off the path isn't a problem either, thanks to the Trailhawk's standard skidplates and front and rear tow hooks. Inside, the Trailhawk proves that blazing a new trail doesn't have to mean roughing it with its impressive ride quality and an exceptional suite of conveniences, like heated front seats, a power driver seat, a heated steering wheel, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen display with navigation and smartphone integration.
For those looking for a less adventurous rig, there's plenty to choose from in the Renegade lineup, from the entry-level Sport and Latitude to the Limited. Every trim even comes standard with an impressive suite of safety and driver-assist tools like Blind-Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path Detection, Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, and LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist. These features add to the Renegade's value and engineer confidence wherever the road or trail takes you.
Unsure if a Jeep Is Right for You?
We understand that if you've never driven a Jeep before, you might be wondering if it's really the right choice for you. As your top Jeep dealership, we're about building relationships and letting our products speak for themselves, not high-pressure sales tactics or fast-talking trickery. That's why we have a fully functional Jeep test track located at our dealership that you can use to take a test ride in any new or used Trail Rated Jeep that we have in stock. Sound good? We think so too!
The test track is on more than an acre of property and mimics the kinds of rough terrain and surfaces you might encounter while driving a Jeep off-road.

We want our Colorado Spring neighbors to drive away happy, knowing they picked the right vehicle and made a choice that will keep them happy for years to come.
That's why the test track offers you greater confidence than just taking a test drive on the highway or the streets of Colorado Springs.
