AutoTrader the largest and most trusted automotive marketplace in Canada has recognized three Jeep® branded vehicles in its 2023 AutoTrader Awards.
The iconic Jeep Wrangler (JL) and the Jeep Gladiator (JT) were co-named ‘Best Vehicle for Adventure’, while the Wagoneer and Wagoneer L (WS), were honored as the ‘Best Full-Size SUV’.
“This recognition from the experts at AutoTrader reinforces the leadership of Jeep brand vehicles, from the go-anywhere Wrangler to the all-new, premium Wagoneer,” said Bill Levasseur, Vice President of Canada Sales & Marketing – Stellantis. “With Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe as the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) in Canada, and Wagoneer adding the all-new Hurricane Twin Turbo I-6 engine – the benchmark for power and efficiency in the large SUV segment – this is a position we intend to hold.”
Jeep Wrangler, the most capable and recognized vehicle in the world, delivers unmatched off-road capability and is produced with more than 80 years of 4×4 experience. Last week, at the Chicago Auto Show, the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 20th Anniversary Edition made its debut, with even more off-road prowess in terms of approach, break-over, and departure angles, ground clearance, and water fording.
The Gladiator was engineered from the ground up to be the most off-road capable Jeep truck ever. It is built on a rich heritage of tough, dependable trucks with an unmatched combination of rugged utility, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, clever functionality, and versatility.
“The Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator duo offers iconic capability, a broad array of powertrains, and the rugged go-anywhere attitude that’s cemented it as the de facto choice for adventure seekers everywhere,” said Jodi Lai, Editor-In-Chief, Autotrader.ca. “Capable right out of the factory, Jeep SUVs have been helping people get to their next adventure for decades, and it’s that type of dedication to its community that proves the brand is going above and beyond to set the benchmark for its segment.”
As the epitome of American premium comfort, the Wagoneer builds on a rich legacy of craftsmanship, heritage, and refinement while offering unparalleled comfort and legendary 4×4 capability. Wagoneer offers an advanced powertrain lineup with first-rate driving dynamics and composed capability. The new extended Wagoneer L delivers best-in-class overall passenger volume and cargo volume behind the third row.
“The Wagoneer and Wagoneer L impress with their big road presence, tons of room, and extravagant interiors that help set the tone for its segment,” Lai added. “While keeping its heritage in mind, the Wagoneer has elevated the brand into new territory. When judging this segment, our jury is looking for vehicles that go above and beyond, and the Wagoneer nails it in all the criteria we consider.”
Launched in 2019, the AutoTrader Awards are the most trusted automotive awards in Canada, according to an Ipsos Research study. Every vehicle that is available in Canada is eligible for an award. A jury of 20 of the country’s foremost automotive journalists voted on the best vehicles in more than 30 segments.
