In its August 2000 issue, Petersen Publishing's Four Wheeler magazine named two Jeep vehicles tops among its 10 Best 4x4 value ratings.
The best-in-class winners and the magazine's comments include:
Compact Four-Door -- Jeep Cherokee
"The six-cylinder engine gives the Cherokee almost limitless amounts of torque and a great power-to-weight ratio. What more could a true lover of low range want?"
Removable Top 4x4 -- Jeep Wrangler
"Long known as one of the most capable out-of-the-box four-wheel drive vehicles around, and certainly one of the most popular choices on tougher trail rides, the Jeep Wrangler has been a consistent breath of fresh air in a world polluted with all-wheel-drive pretenders."
"We are very proud to be recognized in this fashion," said Craig R. Love, Vice President - Jeep Platform Engineering. "Jeep vehicles stand on the promise to deliver rugged, versatile vehicles with authentic four-wheel drive capability. It's great to see a publication with the off-road credibility of Four Wheeler agrees with us."
With almost 60 years of heritage, the Jeep Wrangler continues to be the true, original Jeep that delivers unmatched open-air fun and freedom with the ability to go anywhere, do anything. No vehicle illustrates the award-winning Jeep capability more than the Wrangler, the heart and soul of Jeep. Jeep Wrangler SE comes standard equipped with the 2.5-liter PowerTech four-cylinder engine. The optional 4.0-liter PowerTech I-6 engine, available on Sport and Sahara models, comes standard with the NVG 3550 five-speed manual transmission. A three-speed automatic transmission is available.
Creating a new segment upon its introduction in 1984, Cherokee continues to be a success in the lower-middle sport-utility segment. Fully redesigned for 1997, its classic styling, modern technology and Jeep trademark four-wheel drive leadership appeal to young and old around the world. With a thoroughly reengineered 4-liter PowerTech in-line six-cylinder engine for 2000, Cherokee continues to offer buyers one of the best-performing sport-utility vehicles with all the traditional Jeep capabilities at an attainable price.
