Chapman Chrysler Jeep outfits DJ in 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Chapman Chrysler Jeep at the Valley Automall in Henderson is partnering with Top 40 radio station 98.5 KLUC and afternoon drive DJ, JB King.

As part of a promotional on-air and social media campaign, King will cruise the city in a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Experts from, USA Today, “MotorWeek” and a family representing the average mid-size SUV buyer tested six vehicles for fuel efficiency, practicality, driving ability, comfort and features. The winner of the Today Mid-Size SUV Challenge was the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

“This is exciting for me and the best way to experience the Jeep Grand Cherokee first-hand,” said King.

“I’m familiar with Chapman Automotive and the great customer service it’s known for, and I’m thrilled about the opportunity to share my experience with listeners on KLUC.”

King, who is on-air from 2–6 p.m. weekdays for afternoon drive, chose a bright red Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit, complete with full-wheel quadra-drive II with an air-lift suspension. The 2014 Grand Cherokee has Best-in-Class 4x4 capability.

“KLUC has a great listenership base in our market with whom the Jeep Grand Cherokee is selling extremely well,” said Gary Brewer, general manager of Chapman Chrysler Jeep. “Once JB gets to drive this Jeep, we’re confident he’ll be a big advocate and share his experience with his audience.”

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee boasts a variety of unique features that make it optimal for both off-road and street driving. The traditionally boxy Jeep has become more contemporary in design by smoothing out the rough lines and off-road characteristics.

The model lineup includes Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit and SRT. Base rear-wheel drive units start from $28,795 for the Laredo and increase to $35,795 for the Limited, $42,995 for the Overland and $47,995 for the Summit.
