Some of the others on the forum might have more expert advice than I have but I'll try to do my best,

I think the biggest thing here is are you going for an actual jeep or a toy? The size of the wheels compared to the vehicle makes it look kind of like a matchbox car. Not sure if that's what you are going for or not.

The other thing I noticed is it almost looks like you have the same material on all the parts but just using different colors. I think if there was more differentiation between parts that would also help (everything seems almost a satin-like finish, even the chrome on the roll bar).

The best way to improve is to look at other car/toy renders and then see how to emulate those materials/effects. 

Lastly the lighting environment makes a big different, try using different lighting setups and see if that helps your model, typically most vehicles are photographed underneath a large diffuse plane of light to give the right highlights, you could try setting up something like that.

Good points above, here are a few more-

Realism lies in the details. No surface is perfectly uniform, no edge is completely smooth or sharp. There are imperfections everywhere. That being said, you need to look at reference images and see how scratches, dust, dirt, wear marks, welds, injection moulding imperfections all play a role in your model/image.

And Practice.

I've been on keyshot for almost 2 years, and my renders (as others on this forum will attest) have gone from mediocre to nearly acceptable :)

Read these forums religiously, and pay attention to the people that specialize in car renders, there are a few. Look at images, look at setups. There are people here that post thier scenes so you can pull them apart in keyshot and see how they did what.

Its not easy, but it sure is fun.

My last advice coming from someone that has been where you are. Don't focus on the whole image. Turn the background off, dont' worry about shadows and floor reflections. Choose one area to focus on until you get it right. Pick the body paint, or the headlights, or the tires, and just focus on that. Don't get distracted by trying to fix everything all at once.

You have a great start ,now time to grow them skills!

can not agree with you more, practice is actually the best to learn. especially for a software like keyshot, a hell lot of practices is a must.

That's a job for Photoshop.. or even your phone (try Snapseed or VSCO.. )
