Finding The Right Jeep

With so many models it can be difficult to figure out which Jeep is right for you. Many factors such as fuel economy, cost, off road capability and features will help you determine which Jeep you should look into purchasing.  There are four questions you should ask yourself when it comes to finding the right Jeep for you:


What type of driving do you do: highway, surface streets, off-road?


Will you be doing any towing?


What technology features are important to you?


What is your budget?



Off Road Driving


Those who need to take the dirt roads to the cottage and love off roading you should look at the Cherokee Trailhawk as that includes some improvements for off-road driving such as an 0.8 suspension lift, skid plates, and tow hooks. If you are planning to tackle the trail, take a look at the Wrangler  and the  Renegade Trailhawk.  These models of Jeeps are built to handle anything nature has to throw at it. 


City Driving With Off Road Capability 


If your commute is mostly on pavement and your off-road excursion are snowy roads during the winter, your best bet is either the Patriot or Cherokee. Both offer an impressive amount of features for the price. If you want a bit more kick, the Cherokee Limited features the 2.4 as standard. Even though built for the city these models have what it takes to take on the dirt roads and have off road capability like most jeeps.


Luxury Driving


You can drive through any city in comfort and style in the Cherokee Limited and the Grand Cherokee. Perfect family sized SUV, the Grand Cherokee and Cherokee Limited are ideal for city driving all year round.  Any of the Grand Cherokee models would be ideal to own, but for our money, the Grand Cherokee Limited has a great balance between price and features. We would recommend the 3.6 V6 for daily commutes, the 3.0L EcoDiesel for long-distance driving or towing, and the 5.7L HEMI V8 for substantial towing.
