September 8, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -



The World Surf League (WSL) and Jeep® brand have announced a long-term renewal and expansion of their global partnership. With the extended partnership, the Jeep brand continues as the official and exclusive global automotive partner of the WSL and the naming rights partner to the WSL Jeep Leaders Tour Rankings for the men’s and women’s Championship Tour.

The partnership, which was first announced in May 2015 with the Jeep brand becoming the first-ever exclusive automotive partner of the WSL, has been renewed as part of a multiyear deal, which includes 2020, the year that surfing will make its debut on the world stage at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.




“The Jeep brand embodies the spirit and soul of surfing and surf lifestyle, which makes this partnership so special,” said Beth Greve, WSL Chief Commercial. “We are incredibly excited to continue working together to bring amazing competitions, more must-see stories of the Jeep Leaderboard and showcase the WSL's best in the Jeep Leader Jersey to our fans around the globe.”

“Extending our partnership with the World Surf League allows the Jeep brand to remain firmly immersed in a culture that shares a similar identity and core set of beliefs,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand, FCA – Global. “The convergence of these like-minded values – freedom, adventure, authenticity and passion – offers the Jeep brand the ability to connect globally with our fans and followers through on-site beach activations and live online streaming of worldwide surfing events over the next few years.”

The partnership will see the Jeep brand continue its sponsorship of surfing’s most sought-after properties, the Jeep Leaderboard and the iconic yellow Jeep Leader Jersey, with a refresh of the program. A new Jeep Leader Jersey, as well as new branding across both digital and broadcast Jeep Leader graphics, and a special locker room design for Jeep front-runners, has been unveiled at the Hurley Pro and Swatch Pro at Trestles (September 6 - 17).

The refresh will also be complimented by a series of exciting new content, including one piece that celebrates the incredible moments that have happened with the jersey over the past three years. Furthermore, the world’s best male and female surfers each year, the men’s and women’s WSL Champions, will be awarded a Jeep brand vehicle at the end of the season.

A number of on-site activations are planned throughout the year to showcase the ultimate surf vehicles supporting WSL event operations, as well as engaging fans on the beach at Championship Tour (CT) events and those watching around the world on the broadcast. The Jeep brand will also highlight its product portfolio globally via WSL's unique, geo-targeted digital and linear media solutions.

The partnership will see the Jeep brand expand its portfolio and support of professional surfing with sponsorship of six WSL Qualifying Series events in key markets around the world, including the Anfaplace Pro Casablanca (September 12 - 17), as well as continued support of the WSL CT, including the upcoming Hurley Pro (September 6 - 17) and the Billabong Pipe Masters (December 8 - 20) on the men’s side and the Swatch Pro (September 6 - 17) and Maui Women’s Pro (November 25 - December 6) on the women’s tour.

Consumers will be able to explore content from the most recent WSL events, including the Jeep Leaderboard and the wearer of the coveted yellow Jeep Leader Jersey, via Jeep.com/wsl on desktop and www.jeep.com/en/mobile/wsl for mobile. Surf content, including an interactive schedule of upcoming WSL Championship Tour events and a gallery of top videos and photos, will show off some of the mind-blowing action. Additional content includes the Jeep brand’s new global WSL focused campaign “Crazy Passionate,” introducing the incredible athleticism and lifestyle of the WSL to Jeep brand fans everywhere.

Jeep® Brand Celebrates the Renegade

Jeep® Brand Celebrates the Renegade Spirit of Breakout Singer/Songwriter Halsey and Emerging Artists Molly Kate Kestner, Uri Grey and Chloe Nixon in New Music-centric ‘Release Your Renegade’ Campaign

Campaign for the Jeep® Renegade launches this week across broadcast, digital and social platforms
Astralwerks Records breakout artist Halsey and her new single ‘Bad at Love’ featured in “Release Your Renegade” 30-second video breaking across television beginning today (10/5)
Three additional 30-second videos showcasing up-and-coming musical artists/Renegades on the Rise Molly Kate Kestner (Atlantic Records), Uri Grey, Chloe Nixon, also debut today across the Jeep brand and music artists' social channels
A 60-second behind-the-scenes video featuring Halsey speaking about her journey as an artist debuts today on the Jeep brand digital and social channels


October 5, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

Astralwerks Records breakout artist Halsey and three emerging “renegade” artists – Molly Kate Kestner (Atlantic Records), Uri Grey and Chloe Nixon – are featured in a new Jeep® brand marketing campaign for the Jeep Renegade that celebrates the spirit of Renegades on the Rise – women with a quest to find their voices, even if it breaks the mold. Each artist is showcased in one of four 30-second videos in the “Release Your Renegade” campaign, first speaking of their own personal journeys and what makes them a renegade, and embracing a sense of freedom and expressionism brought to life in the songs and music they each write and perform. Halsey and her new single “Bad at Love” star in the first spot, which debuts on national television this week.

In the “Release Your Renegade” videos, Halsey releases her inner renegade spirit and new Astralwerks Records single “Bad at Love,” while Molly Kate Kestner introduces her new empowering anthem “Compromise.” Up-and-coming artist Uri Grey sings “Blend Out” and Chloe Nixon performs “Feel Like Me” in their commercials.

“With the ‘Release Your Renegade’ campaign, Jeep is lending its reach and providing a worldwide platform for breakout artist Halsey, as well as talented up-and-coming female artists Molly Kate Kestner, Uri Grey and Chloe Nixon, to share their unique stories of exactly what it means to be a renegade – as told through their own words and music,” said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, FCA. “Jeep represents freedom, passion, adventure and authenticity – qualities shared by our Millennial artists. The campaign’s unique approach not only celebrates each performer individually but does so using a double exposure creative technique that integrates the Jeep Renegade into the image in a way that captures both the spirit of the artists and vehicle.”



The “Release Your Renegade” campaign launches nationally on broadcast, online and social platforms beginning today (Thursday, October 5). The creative will be amplified across the Jeep brand Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels, as well as the artists’ social media platforms, using hashtag #ReleaseYourRenegade.

Additionally, in a 60-second behind-the-scenes video launching today (Thursday, October 5) on the official Jeep website and social channels, Halsey speaks to how she found her voice as a young artist, revealing, “Singing songs in my house meant that my parents would hear me and tell me that I needed to pick something else to do with my time. So, being in my car meant total freedom, the ability to make mistakes and maybe make a complete fool out of myself. Because sometimes, those mistakes turn out to be the greatest part of a song.”

The “Release Your Renegade” campaign was created in partnership with DDB Chicago.

About Halsey
GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum alternative pop maverick Halsey claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 with her second release "Hopeless Fountain Kingdom," an album Rolling Stone called “bold” in a 4-star review, claiming that “Halsey could go anywhere from here.” Indeed, since storming on the music scene in 2015, she has garnered over 2 billion streams globally and more than 3 million global sales, graced the covers of magazines from Nylon to Billboard to Forbes, among others – a far cry from the New Jersey teen who’d escaped her suburban existence for New York, writing poetry and scrounging money for concerts and her next slice of pizza. Halsey went from putting songs on SoundCloud to having her first full-length album "BADLANDS," certified platinum by the RIAA within one year of its release, from couch surfing to witnessing her first tour sell out in minutes to touring globally with sold-out dates on five continents (including a sold-out Madison Square Garden performance) and performing for the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Norway. Halsey first invaded pop culture in 2015 when her debut album "BADLANDS" crash-landed at #2 on the Billboard Top 200. She garnered a 2017 GRAMMY nomination in the category of "Best Pop Duo/Group Performance" for "Closer," her seven times platinum megahit with The Chainsmokers. As her star continues to rise, Halsey uses her voice to speak up for causes she passionately believes in, including disenfranchised youth, women’s rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community, proving that both she and her music can affect meaningful change, and that, yes, the 23-year-old can go anywhere from here. Click on “Bad at Love” to download or stream the song.

About Molly Kate Kestner

Molly Kate Kestner caught the world’s attention in 2014 while still in high school, when a home video of her original song “His Daughter” garnered 7 million views on YouTube in just a few weeks. To date, the song has reached 15.7 million views on YouTube, more than 10 million streams and sold more than 126K singles in the U.S. alone. After signing with Atlantic Records, the 21-year-old Kestner made the move from her hometown of Austin, Minnesota, to Los Angeles, where she has been working on new material for herself and writing for and collaborating with other artists, including Kelly Clarkson. Starting October 31, Kestner will head out on a U.S. tour in support of singer/songwriter Phoebe Ryan. Click on “Compromise” to download or stream the song.

About Uri Grey
Uri Grey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actor. Grey’s talent as a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer are all evident in her first self-penned and produced album “Lovelations” and sophomore release "Colors." Her debut album “Lovelations” was released under her given name Shameka Dwight in 2011. Songs like “Roses Have Thorns,” “Always,” and “Love Is” have led others to describe her music as refreshing, organic, authentic and meaningful. Grey’s ability to mix folk, jazz and pop styles resulted in a sound that’s vintage, rich and soulful. Topics of love, struggle and self-worth continue to be the inspiration behind her pen. Grey began to explore new sounds and approaches to writing that are evident on her latest release “Colors.” This EP was released June 2016 and features four original songs that have received much praise for the production and penmanship. Those ideas were expressed through songs, including “I Just Wanna Be” and “Inside Out.” Grey’s music continues to uplift and inspire those who are able to witness it. Grey’s latest single “Blend Out” is the perfect example of inspiration and self-love. “Blend Out” is available on all digital music platforms.

About Chloe Nixon

Up-and-coming indie musician and songwriter, 14-year-old Chloe Nixon recently released her first single “Free Fall” to Sound Cloud and YouTube. She is currently in the process of releasing her first album “Anomalous Soul.” As a young artist, Nixon is creating a fresh sound that combines elements from different genres, including R&B, alternative, jazz-rock, dance and classical. She writes about things she's passionate about, including love, social justice and just being a teenager. She is a strong supporter of self-expression and believes everyone has something beautiful and unique inside of them. Her first album is titled “Anomalous Soul.” Nixon had the honor of performing some of her original music, and an aria from an opera, at TEDx ABQ in 2015 when she was just 12 years old. Nixon is classically trained in voice and received a gold medal in the 2017 Golden Key Music festival for her performance of “Summertime” from the opera Porgy and Bess, which she performed at Carnegie Hall. While Nixon is still in school, you can often find her singing and playing her guitar at various venues, such as coffee houses, around Albuquerque.

Workers for Jeep® Wrangler Launch

FCA US, UT Partner to Train Toledo Assembly Complex Workers for Jeep® Wrangler Launch

Week-long “Toledo Way” training program included three days at UT
More than 2,200 employees took part in launch readiness classes and activities
UT program focused on expanding World Class Manufacturing knowledge
$700 million investment transformed Toledo North plant for Wrangler production
Plant adding 700 new jobs to support production


October 20, 2017 , Toledo, Ohio -

The FCA US Toledo Assembly Complex and The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation have teamed up to prepare more than 2,200 workers to build the next-generation Jeep® Wrangler, launching later this year.

Over the past six weeks, employees from the Toledo North plant, where the new Wrangler will be built, have been participating in a comprehensive training and launch readiness program known as the “Toledo Way.” The week-long program included three, eight-hour days of hands-on technical training at The University of Toledo’s Scott Park Campus, a day of community service, and a day devoted to learning about the Jeep brand and time behind the wheel of a Wrangler to experience its off-road capability.

The hands-on activities, developed collaboratively with UT, focused on expanding the employees’ knowledge of and competence in World Class Manufacturing, the Company’s manufacturing methodology that aims to eliminate waste, while improving quality and safety in a systematic and organized way. The classes were tailored to meet the specific needs of workers in various departments and taught by instructors from UT and Northwest State Community College.

“This training was unprecedented in size and scope,” said Chuck Padden, Toledo Assembly Complex Plant Manager. “It would have been impossible for us to execute this training while also preparing for an important vehicle launch without the cooperation of the UT and Northwest State Community College staff.

“They not only provided us with a location large enough to hold these classes, but enhanced our curriculum by developing unique hands-on activities that would engage our employees,” said Padden. “We believe this experience has given our Toledo workforce the necessary tools to ensure a successful launch of the Wrangler.”

Production, salaried and skilled trades employees cycled through the training in shifts of 180 people, six days a week. The course curriculum included classes on quality, safety, problem solving and workplace organization, the way in which parts are delivered to an operator on the line. In one class on logistics, the Toledo employees used Legos to build a car, simulating the importance of on-time parts delivery to the line.

“The University of Toledo is proud of this excellent partnership with FCA US that enhances our collective efforts to strengthen our community,” UT President Sharon L. Gaber said. “Working together, two of Toledo’s anchor institutions continue to contribute as major forces to the region’s growth and development. People make the difference, and we are providing these hard-working men and women high-level training to succeed for their families and for our region.”

“The UT College of Business and Innovation is pleased and excited to deliver this important training program for more than 2,200 employees at Toledo’s Jeep manufacturing facilities,” said Dr. Gary Insch, dean of the UT College of Business and Innovation. “Jeep is one of America’s most iconic brands, and COBI, as one of Bloomberg’s top 100 business schools in the nation, is proud to be their educational partner. We are committed to their continued success.”

The Toledo Assembly training sessions were led by Dr. Anand Kunnathur, professor in the Department of Information, Operations and Technology Management.

This is the second time that the Toledo plant has turned to UT for training support. Back in 2013, the plant worked with the university to prepare the workforce for the launch of the Jeep Cherokee. Since then, UT has delivered training classes directly to skilled trades on the plant floor.

Toledo North Retools for Jeep Wrangler Production
The Jeep Wrangler has called Toledo, Ohio, home for more than 75 years. Since 2006, the iconic Jeep model has been built in the south plant of the Toledo Assembly Complex, or what has also been known as Toledo Supplier Park, an innovative manufacturing project that engages supplier partners to help build the Wrangler body and chassis before being transferred to the FCA US-managed south plant for final assembly.

When the next-generation Wrangler launches later this year, it will continue to be built in Toledo, but will roll off the line from Toledo Assembly’s north plant. The Wrangler’s move from the south to the north plant represents the second step of the Company’s two-phased, $3.5 billion industrialization plan to realign its U.S. manufacturing operations to expand the Jeep and Ram brands. FCA US is investing $700 million to retool the north plant for production of the all-new Wrangler and adding 700 new jobs.

To date, more than 2 million Wranglers have rolled off the line of Toledo’s south plant.

More on the partnership can be viewed at WorldSurfLeague.com and Jeep.com

November 21, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

Jeep I World Surf League I Crazy Passionate

The Jeep® brand has named Jordy Smith, Malia Manuel and Tyler Wright as its official World Surf League (WSL) athletes. The three athletes, who embody the Jeep spirit with their tenacity and love of adventure, will act as brand ambassadors, supporting the Jeep and WSL partnership for the 2017-2018 competition season. The initiative will run across broadcast print, digital and social channels. Social posts across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will follow the three World Surf League athletes’ adventures in the water and on the road.

The Jeep brand, WSL and surf culture share a particular kind of passion – a persistent drive to explore the world with high energy and fearless enthusiasm. "Crazy Passionate" is a 60-second spot created for television, digital and social highlighting the campaign.


Fans can follow the athletes across their social channels (below), in addition to World Surf League (@wsl) and Jeep (@jeep):

Facebook/Instagram: @MaliaManuel, @TylerWright and @JordySmith
Twitter: @maliamanuel, @TylerGwright and @jordysmith88


Exciting new content in the partnership includes the celebration of the incredible moments that have happened with the Jeep Leader yellow jersey over the past three years. Additionally, the men’s and women’s WSL Champions, the world’s best male and female surfers of 2017, will be awarded a Jeep brand vehicle at the end of the season.

Up next is the Maui Women’s Pro (Nov. 25 - Dec. 6), which will determine the women’s WSL Title winner going into the final event of the year, where five surfers are able to clinch the coveted title: Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS), Tyler Wright (AUS), Courtney Conlogue (USA), Carissa Moore (HAW) and Stephanie Gilmore (AUS). Defending WSL Champion Tyler Wright currently sits in second place on the Jeep Leaderboard and will fight for her second consecutive Championship Tour win.

Following that is the Billabong Pipe Masters (Dec. 8 - 20), the final stop on the 2017 WSL Championship Tour, which will decide this year’s World Title. Four surfers remain in contention heading into the final event: reigning WSL World Champion John John Florence (HAW) who leads the Jeep Leader rankings, Jordy Smith (ZAF), Gabriel Medina (BRA) and Julian Wilson (AUS). Jordy Smith has worn the yellow Jeep Leader Jersey for some of the year – 2017 highlight results include his win at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach and second-place finish at the 2017 Hurley Pro at Trestles.

With exploding waves over shallow lava reef and sand, for decades Pipeline has been considered the most dangerous wave on the planet. The history of the break, combined with the sheer ferocity of the wave, makes winning the Billabong Pipe Masters a meaningful achievement for many pros. Careers are made there, as much as boards are broken. The Billabong Pipe Masters will see unparalleled athleticism, competitive drama and adventure as the world’s best surfers battle for the 2017 World Title.

Jeep brand and the WSL announced a long-term renewal and expansion of their global partnership this past September. With the extended partnership, the Jeep brand continues as the official and exclusive global automotive partner of the WSL and the naming rights partner to the WSL Jeep Leaders Tour Rankings for the men’s and women’s Championship Tour. The Jeep brand became the first-ever exclusive automotive partner of the WSL through a partnership first announced in May 2015.

A number of on-site activations are planned throughout the year to showcase the ultimate surf vehicles supporting WSL event operations, as well as engaging fans on the beach at Championship Tour events and those watching around the world on the broadcast. The Jeep brand will also highlight its product portfolio globally via WSL's unique, geo-targeted digital and linear media solutions.

Consumers are able to explore content from the most recent WSL events, including the Jeep Leaderboard and the wearer of the coveted yellow Jeep Leader Jersey, via Jeep.com/wsl on desktop and www.jeep.com/en/mobile/wsl for mobile.

A nameplate that has unquestionably stood the test of time, the Cherokee upholds the Jeep brand tradition of inspiring design, practicality, safety and legendary capability, continuing the evolution of the brand.

From the cities that embrace the urban landscape to the far reaches of the rugged off-road, Jeep brand owners have license to fully explore any corner of the world. This is the world that comes with the reimagined 2019 Jeep Cherokee, and stands as the universal proposition that is uniquely ownable by the Jeep brand.

Jeep is Already Teasing its Moab Easter Safari Vehicles

Jeep is Already Teasing its Moab Easter Safari Vehicles

Mar 15, 2018








Each year, Jeep enthusiasts look forward to the automaker’s Moab Easter Safari event, which always features awesome concepts.

Set to take place this year from March 24 to April 1, the 2018 Easter Jeep Safari will once again bring a selection of Jeep concept vehicles created in collaboration with Mopar. The American automaker is getting things started early by releasing two teaser images, hinting at a couple of the new concept vehicles heading to Moab.

Both concepts appear to be based on the new 2018 Wrangler, and one of them is wearing a “Jeepster” badge on the front fender. Expect that concept to be inspired by the Jeepster Commando from the 1960s and 1970s. There’s also a two-tone exterior featuring a contrasting white hardtop and a steeply-sloped rear window.

The other teaser image doesn’t reveal much other than the front end, which boasts a new front bumper, a grille guard, and a ram air hood. There appears to be LED headlights and naturally, more aggressive off-road-ready tires.

Unfortunately for now, that is all Jeep has treated us to. But expect more teasers in the coming days leading up to the event.

Surfer With the Best Individual Score

Jeep® Brand Rides WSL Founders' Cup of Surfing Wave as Exclusive Automotive Partner

Surfer With the Best Individual Score at the End of Two-Day Event Will Be Awarded an All-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler


May 2, 2018 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The World Surf League (WSL) and the Jeep® brand announce the release of their virtual reality (VR) experience, Jeep® Sessions: A Surfing Journey in 360°, leading into the year-long 2018 surf season. Surf fans all over the world can experience Jeep® Sessions: Surfing in 360° at WSL events throughout the year, including Vans US Open of Surfing, Quiksilver Pro France, Billabong Pipe Masters and Hawaii Women’s Pro.

As part of its multiyear global deal, the Jeep® brand is the exclusive automotive partner of the World Surf League’s (WSL) upcoming Founders’ Cup of Surfing event presented by Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold, a historic nation-versus-nation teams event featuring a cross-section of the world's best surfers, to be held at WSL Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California, May 5-6, 2018.

The WSL Surf Ranch facility boasts the best man-made wave in history – a 700-yard, high-performance, bi-directional wave featuring barrel sections and maneuver sections. Primarily existing as a testing facility, the Lemoore site has spent the past two years dialing in the technology under the guidance of 11-time WSL Champion Kelly Slater (USA) and feedback from visiting WSL surfers. The technology has captured the imagination of the global surfing community. The Founders' Cup will be the WSL’s first public event at the facility, showcasing the wave and the world's best surfers through a unique team format.


“Surf and Jeep brand fans share an extreme enthusiasm that drives them to seek their next adventure,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA. “The Founders’ Cup and the Surf Ranch are born from the passion of an entire community that dreamed its existence. These are the same dreamers and doers that fuel our Jeep brand culture. We not only share the same sensibilities as the World Surf League, we also provide the global reach that is both uniquely compatible and necessary to extend across their worldwide surf events.”

The Jeep brand will have an on-site activation at the event, including the recently announced "Jeep Sessions: A Surfing Journey in 360°" virtual reality experience, where fans can take a virtual reality adventure with Jeep Ambassadors Jordy Smith and Malia Manuel. In addition, five “Crazy Passionate” videos embodying the shared DNA between the Jeep brand and the spirit and soul of surfing/surf lifestyle will run across the Jeep brand’s social and digital channels.

Additional elements of the Founders’ Cup partnership include:

"Jeep Best Ride" – Athletes will be scored on each run and the leading run over the course of the contest will hold the title of "Jeep Best Ride." Broadcast viewers will see a special icon next to the name of the current "Jeep Best Ride" leader whenever he or she is in the water, and when the competition concludes, the athlete with the highest score overall will take home an all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler

Five teams – USA, Brazil, Australia, Europe and World – made up of three men and two women surfers from the elite WSL Championship Tour will compete over the two-day event. The competition will be hosted against a festival backdrop honoring the culture of surfing – food, music, beverage, art and special guests will all be on site for enjoyment. Tickets for the event are available at WSLFoundersCup.com.

As the WSL’s exclusive automotive partner, the Jeep brand continues its sponsorship of surfing’s most sought-after properties – the Jeep Leaderboard and the iconic yellow Jeep Leader Jersey.

Jeep brand was recognized as a 2018 "Cult Brand" Honoree at the annual The Gathering (Society of Cult Brands) in February 2018. Jeep brand is the first and only automotive brand recognized by the association. Eight brands, and their leaders, were honored for their outstanding courage and unconventional thinking in achieving enviable brand engagement and reaping the benefits of cult-like status.

Wrangler Golden Grille Award winner will be announced in the Thursday, September 27 webisode

September 6, 2018 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The Jeep® brand is launching its first-ever web series competition, “Jeep Wrangler Celebrity Customs,” as part of its new marketing campaign encompassing digital, social and experiential elements. The centerpiece of this unique competition is the iconic Jeep Wrangler. Former NBA standout and sports analyst Jalen Rose hosts the six-episode web series, which fans and followers can view at www.jeep.com/celebrity-customs. In the web series, baseball legend and MLB analyst Alex Rodriguez, entrepreneur and media personality Maria Menounos and the restaurant media platform The Infatuation, with co-founders Andrew Steinthal and Chris Stang, compete with the assistance of professional customizers and Jeep Performance Parts to craft an all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler that showcases their respective styles, passions and personalities.

The first webisode, three to four minutes in length, launches today, Thursday, September 6 at www.jeep.com/celebrity-customs. The following five webisodes will debut on Sept. 11, Sept. 13, Sept. 18, Sept. 20 and Sept. 27. The final installment on September 27 takes place at a special reveal event in Los Angeles where all four celebrity contestants will be in attendance as the customization challenge winner is revealed.

In addition to the Jeep brand-selected winner receiving the Wrangler Golden Grille Award, fans and followers can vote online at Jeep.com for the Fan Favorite Award, following the sixth and final episode on September 27. Voting will take place on Jeep.com from September 27 through October 5.

Owners have long customized the Jeep Wrangler to reflect their individual personalities that enable them to seek their own unique adventures, wherever the road takes them. Throughout the web series, the celebrities work with the customizers and Jeep Performance Parts to outfit their Jeep Wrangler and create a one-of-a-kind vehicle. The winner not only gets bragging rights, but will keep the Jeep Wrangler they’ve customized, which no doubt will turn heads wherever they go.

Fourteen-time MLB All-Star and founder of AROD Corp Alex Rodriguez is collaborating with Ryan Friedlinghaus of West Coast Customs to create the ultimate Jeep Wrangler, one that fits his business and out of office needs.

"It’s been thrilling to compete in the first ever Jeep Wrangler Celebrity Customs," said Rodriguez. "Ryan and his team at West Coast Customs are building me the perfect ride — a Wrangler that keeps up with both my business and my lifestyle. I’m certain those guys are going to help me knock it out of the park!"

Renowned TV personality and SiriusXM host Maria Menounos has long-aspired to be a Jeep Wrangler owner, and now she gets her chance as she teams up with David Tonapetyan of DCD Customs, which specializes in Jeep Wrangler customizations, to craft the Wrangler of her dreams. "I never shy away from a little friendly competition," said Menounos. "I’m so excited to participate in this program with the Jeep brand and I look forward to presenting creative space and organizational solutions from my own personal point of view, while also catering to dog lovers everywhere!"

Chris Stang and Andrew Steinthal are the founders of The Infatuation, a social and digital discovery platform designed to find a restaurant for the perfect situation, and recent acquirers of Zagat. Having a vehicle in NYC is a luxury, so Chris and Andrew have linked up with Stefano Loria of AutoCraft NYC to make sure they roam the city streets in style – with their very own customized Jeep Wrangler.

"We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the Jeep brand on this program. We've always dreamed about having our own custom Infatuation ride, and we couldn't think of a better vehicle than the Jeep Wrangler to make our own," said Chris Stang, CEO & Co-Founder.

Co-Founder & CRO Andrew Steinthal added, "We look forward to seeing how Alex Rodriquez and Maria Menounos customize their vehicles, and our goal is to see their designs in our rearview mirror when we win. May the best Jeep Wrangler win."
