Latest News: Jeep features prominently in this year’s 4x4 Magazine ‘4x4 of the Year 2018 awards’, taking three of the honours’ top prizes. Among the magazine’s Special Awards, Jeep was crowned 4x4 Manufacturer of the Year and Jeep Wrangler scooped the Off-Road Award. Meanwhile Jeep Renegade was named Best Small SUV in the honours’ Class Awards. With the new Jeep Compass due on sale here in February and new Wrangler due later in 2018, it is going to be another important year for Jeep. 4x4 Magazine’s panel of experts recognised the company’s achievements in their awards. “The Wrangler will continue to be the dedicated off-road machine a brand like Jeep needs if it is to remain credible – which it clearly is,” said Alan Kidd, editor, 4x4 Magazine. “The arrival of the new Compass strengthens the company’s position still further. Jeep is absolutely getting it right.” On Wrangler’s Off-Road Award, the panel of experts said: “When a vehicle is still capable of winning awards when its replacement is already being built, that’s an indication of how far ahead it is. This Wrangler is more than 10 years old, yet demand is greater than ever and used ones are going up, not down, in value. More than ever, it’s the definitive off-roader.” And commenting on Renegade’s Small SUV win, they said: “Last year’s overall champion is still a winning proposition in its own highly competitive corner of the market. There are more refined options, but the Renegade has plenty of image, plenty of kit – and a set of off-road skills to leave the rest of the class standing still.” “’There’s Only One’ is what we say about Jeep, and millions of people all over the world will testify to that,” says Andrew Tracey, Country Brand Manager, Jeep UK. “So it’s especially good to see a panel of 4x4 experts agreeing that point too and not only recognising two of our models in their awards, but making us their top manufacturer. “With new Compass and Wrangler to come, and constant improvements being made to our entire range of cars, we are looking forward to 2018 and beyond.” The Jeep Wrangler range starts at £36,740 OTR for the 2.8 CRD Sahara. The Jeep Renegade range starts at £18,250 OTR for the 1.6E-TorQ 110hp Sport.

CITROËN RELAY READY TO RUN RANGE EXPANDED

Citroën’s ‘Relay Ready to Run’ range of ready-bodied vehicles is being expanded and an all-new Euro 6 engine line-up is being introduced at the Commercial Vehicle Show - full details of these new engines will be available nearer the time of the CV Show.

Now joining the established range of high-specification, competitively priced tippers, dropsides and Luton vans in the Relay Ready to Run range are:

- A new ‘Plant & Go’ small plant carrier
- A new car transporter
- Two new Crew Vans

Offering a very high payload, combined with practicality and versatility, the Plant & Go small plant carrier is an important addition to Citroën’s Relay Ready to Run range. One of the major advantages of the 3.5 tonne gvw KFS Special Vehicles Plant & Go conversion, for many fleets, is that it eliminates the need for a trailer, which is often seen as a costly capital investment.

The vehicle has the ability to transport one large, or two or more smaller items of plant. Its unique design allows general site items to also be carried. Operators also have the option of using the vehicle as a traditional dropside to transport items such as jet washers, gas cylinders or scaffolding. The load area is easily accessible, due to a floor height of just 530mm from the ground.

A key feature of the Plant & Go’s multi-function bodywork is its removable light alloy loading ramps, which double as the load bay’s sideboards. This innovation removes the need for a specific ramp or tail lift, and helps to keep the kerb weight of the vehicle down to an impressive 1,860kg.

The Relay-based 3.5 tonne gvw car transporter has been converted by KFS Special Vehicles and specifically targets the vehicle logistics and dealer stock movement sectors. With a drop frame chassis design that is exclusive to KFS, the car transporter has a 1,760kg kerb weight, achieved thanks to innovative engineering and extensive use of lightweight materials.

The car transporter specification includes a driver’s airbag, heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors, remote central locking, CD radio and electric windows, all as standard. The Relay Ready to Run car transporter offers a number of important benefits. Its low deck height results in a shallower ramp angle for improvedvehicle loading. It also boasts 2.44m (8ft) lightweight alloy ramps.

Also joining the range are two new Relay Ready to Run Enterprise Crew Vans. Available in L1H1 and L3H2 configurations.  These safe, comfortable vehicle conversions – created by CoTrim – affords operators a large load space, as well as ample room for the driver and five passengers. The Relay Ready to Run Enterprise L1H1 Crew Van has a load floor length of 1,500mm, plus an extra 380mm under the rear seats. In the L3H2 model, there is a total floor load length of 2,535mm, plus the extra 380mm under the rear seats.

With safety in mind, the Crew Vans’ rear seats have been designed and tested to comply with EU Whole Vehicle Type Approval standards. The integrated, moulded bulkhead has been tested to ISO 27956 for load restraint protection.

These new models will, like the other models in the Relay Ready to Run range, be available from stock via Citroën’s Business Centre network and other large Citroën dealers. The Relay Ready to Run range is included in the Citroën LCV price list and has a full 2 year unlimited mileage/3 year 100,000 mile factory warranty, covering all elements of the chassis cab and the body conversion.
