Ready to humble

There was great excitement when Jeep revealed the Gladiator for the first time in 2018. The first units rolled off the assembly line in 2020 and caused an even bigger stir thanks to a ruggedly attractive design, a plethora of standard features, and great performance, both on the road and off the beaten track. Here in South Africa, the Gladiator was finally launched in June 2022. ANTON WILLEMSE SNR recently put it to the test.

Take 5

Following the introduction of the brand-new Grand Cherokee seven-seater in August last year, Jeep have added a five-seater to the mix. According to LIANA REINERS it’s everything a premium SUV should be, and then some!

The realm of real men

With a passion for old American trucks and a fearless attitude towards life in general, a group of Jeep owners headed into Zululand to experience adventure… and an unexpected brush with divinity. Roger Gaisford tells the amusing tale.

To “verneuk” or not to “verneuk”…

Generally we feature radical built-up rigs with some amazing modifications in this section, but every so often we hear the story of a classic… Stories of affection and a longing for days gone by. One such story is that of Roger Kassner’s little Willys Jeep.

Ain’t no Mountain high enough…

Back in the 1940s, during World War II, General Patton declared that the USA’s single biggest contribution to the war effort was the introduction of the Willys Overland. Many still regard it as the first-ever off-roader, able to get you wherever you want to go… come hell or high water. That is precisely the mission of the DVR Xtreme 4×4 Rowwe Blixem off-road trip. The goal is simply to find an obscure destination and follow the most challenging route to get there. Anton Willemse Jnr went along for the rather rough ride.

Gladiators, Are you ready? Vehicle Review Jeep Gladiator.

In a market flooded with SUVs and bakkies, buyers are spoilt for choice, particularly in terms of double-cab offerings. However, one brand has been conspicuously missing… until now that is. Almost three decades after the Comanche was discontinued, Jeep re-entered the bakkie fray with the introduction of the Gladiator. Anton Willemse Snr attended the local launch and reveals all.

Out with the old: Jeep Grand Cherokee Driving impressions

The SUV segment of the South African automotive market continues to expand exponentially. However, options for a large luxury seven-seater SUV with decent off-roading chops are few and far between. If you’re in the market for that kind of vehicle, Anton Willemse Jnr believes Jeep has you covered.

With a heart like a lion

Peter Aigner has been bitten by the Africa bug. However, being a German living in Munich, means that there’s a fair bit of water and land between him and the wide-open plains of southern Africa. However, in 2013 he took the leap to heed the call of adventure. He started exploring our beautiful country in standard rental cars, but very soon he was called to the bush and ascended into the realm of African overlanding.
