Jeep has decided to roll out a new line of non-electric vehicles in 2015 known as the Renegade.

The miles per gallon on these models range from 24 in the city, and 31 on the highway.

The company must not have got the memo that the amount of carbon emissions entering the atmosphere is already past the point of acceptance. In reality, the company knows about this problem, and just doesn’t care. So, instead of kissing up to their company like a majority of the the other media outlets, I let them know firmly that their decision making process is flawed.

Let’s take a look at the car company that is rated the best for the past two years, Tesla Motors.

There is a reason why their vehicles are rated so well, and that is they put time and effort into each decision, not including marketing, Jeep does a better job in that field. This is probably due to their financial foundation and 70 year history.

Continuing on that point, it can be noted that the traditional and longer lasting car companies have indirectly merged with the oil and gas companies.

Fortune recently reported on Holman Jenkins, a Wall Street Journal columnist, immoral decision on bashing Consumer Reports’ grading of the Model S with a 103 out of 100.

Interestingly, the controversy over Consumer Report’s rating of the battery-powered luxury car wasn’t about whether Tesla builds a car as good as the magazine says. The Journal column argued that the magazine “prostituted” itself to “shill” for a $120,000 vehicle favored by government policy makers. Columnists from left and right debated the politics underlying the Tesla Model S — namely that the government subsidizes and promotes battery-powered cars, as Tesla and others advocate.

CNET gave Jeep’s Renegade an 8 out of 10 respectfully.

There has to be a reason why educated people choose to produce new vehicles that run on gasoline, and I find this to be due to financial assistance. (Side note, we don’t turn tricks or “prostitute” ourselves for any company, even the Wall Street Journal.)

Jeep is not the only company to produce gasoline-based automobiles, but they do have the ability to help users save money on their expenses each month. The have the power to give the users the ability to generate power for their vehicle by virtue of renewable energy. It is morally and financially wrong to continue to make poor decisions.

Thanks to a friend, I am lucky to currently own a Jeep. It has helped me travel the country during college, and expand our brand.

For four years I went without a vehicle, so I understand what it means to walk, and save the environment, as well as the burden of not having a mode of transportation. When I become financially stable in 2016/2017, I plan on buying a Tesla. I will note that I respect Jeep for advertising with our company, where Tesla Motors currently doesn’t. I point out their flawed decision making as well.

Overall, searching and buying a new mode of transportation is a big decision, and I hope you make the right one.
