Choosing the Right Jeep Vehicle
Jeep is a brand for everyone, but not every Jeep is right for every buyer. Some are for budget buyers, some are for families with a sense of adventure, and some are for the hardcore enthusiasts.
How do you know which is the right for you, though? Let’s find out.
For Budget Buyers: Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot, and Introducing the New Jeep Renegade
All three of Jeep’s budget vehicles are available in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive to give Miami Jeep buyers even more options.
The original Jeep Compass, which debuted in 2007, featured an almost futuristic design that was a mix between a newer Jeep Grand Cherokee and an older Jeep Cherokee.
Since the 2011 model year, however, the Compass has sported a Grand Cherokee-like design. But with a starting price of just under $19,000, it’s a great Jeep for buyers who want the best of Jeep for less.
Based on the same platform as the Jeep Compass, the Patriot features more of a traditional box design seen on older Jeeps, such as the original Cherokee.
Apart from Jeep’s big expansion of 2007, the Patriot was meant to give Jeep access to buyers who were focused on fuel economy more than capabilities. And with a low starting price, it’s still an accessible purchase for all entry-level crossover SUV buyers.
The newest, and smallest, addition to the Jeep family, the Renegade is also the most budget-friendly. Starting at just $17,995, the affectionately-named “Mini Jeep” doesn’t sacrifice quality or features because of its size and budget-minded price, though.
Like the Compass and Patriot, it’s available in both FWD and 4WD, and can be upgraded with options to become both an efficient city car or a capable trail-tackling monster.
For Families with a Sense of Adventure: Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee
Jeep vehicles are primarily known for their amazing offroad capabilities, but some also make extremely safe and versatile family vehicles.
With a new redesign, innovative safety features, and an enhanced efficiency, the Cherokee is now one of the most impressive SUVs on the market thanks to its capabilities and unique features that are leaving the competition to play catch-up.
Rated at up to 31 mpg on the highway thanks to its 9-speed transmission, the Cherokee is the most efficient Jeep in the company’s 2015 line-up. On top of this, its forward-collision warning system, handy 9-1-1 call button, and blind spot monitoring make it an extremely safe choice for those with families.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Including all of the capabilities of the Cherokee, the Grand Cherokee really does earn its “Grand” title. Full of luxury and refinement, drivers have the option to go efficient thanks to a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 or powerful with a 5.7-liter V8. For families looking to have it all–safety, power, efficiency, and refinement–there’s no better choice than the Grand Cherokee.
For the Hardcore Adventurer: Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
The Wrangler is the crème de la crème of the Jeep family. It’s the classic military Jeep reborn for every American to enjoy. If you want to express your sense of adventure every day and enjoy being able to hit the trails and conquer any terrain, these are the vehicles for you. In fact, owners of all types of Jeep Wranglers love their vehicles so much, they have a secret wave that they give to other owners when sighted in the wild.
When you say “Jeep,” this is what most people will think about first. Their offroad capabilities and history are embedded in the minds of most Americans, making it one of the country’s most recognizable vehicles.
Tested and refined over its 30-year production run, the Wrangler is the first car you should look at if you consider yourself a true adventurer.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
In 2007, Jeep introduced the four-door Wrangler, giving it the title “Unlimited.” Where once Wrangler owners were limited by the vehicle’s small size, the Wrangler Unlimited gives buyers the room necessary to pack more people or supplies into their vehicle.
Available in many trims, including a variety of limited edition packages, the Wrangler Unlimited can double has a family car and weekend offroader!
How Jeep Compares to its Rivals
Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Land Rover Range Rover Sport
Last year, Car and Driver did a comparison of a 2014 Grand Cherokee and a 2010 Range Rover Sport. They’re the best selling vehicles for each brand and are both in the same price range with similar capabilities.
While the Range Rover is clearly the more luxurious of the two, as a used vehicle it’s still hit with more depreciation than the brand new Grand Cherokee was at the time. Not only that, but fuel cost and maintenance were much higher on the 2010.
Jeep has gone out of its way to really give buyers more luxurious features and truly compete with brands, like Land Rover, that are considered more upscale.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited vs. Toyota FJ Cruiser
After Toyota announced they would discontinue the FJ Cruiser, Motor Trend decided to send it off into the sun with a comparison to its biggest rival: the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
Both vehicles were surprisingly well-matched on and offroad, with the Jeep only narrowly winning most challenges. The FJ’s interior was also dated compared to the Wrangler Unlimited, which has received regular updates.
The biggest difference, however, came when the price was brought into the picture. The Wrangler’s base models is an affordable $27,000, but the 4WD FJ Cruiser starts at over $29,000. And when you start adding in extras, to get an FJ model that competes with a similarly equipped Wrangler Unlimited, you’ll have to pay upwards of $5,000 more. That’s $5,000 more for a vehicle that’s less capable than the Wrangler Unlimited, making the winner of this comparison crystal clear.
Jeep Wrangler vs. Nissan Xterra
The outgoing Xterra is probably the Wrangler’s closest 4×4 rival today. Along with the Wrangler, it’s also one of the last true SUVs.
In terms of performance, both vehicles are on the same playing field. In terms of potential, however, the Jeep supplies buyers with more options in the aftermarket.
Where the Jeep takes the lead is its low entry price, great resale value, and low insurance rates. The Xterra requires a huge upfront investment for an offroad-capable “PRO-4X” model and depreciates rapidly.
Not to mention the fact that you’d be buying into the Jeep family, which is a living, breathing community on its own.
