How to choose which Jeep is for you?


All Jeep models are SUVs, but they range in SUV class and size, so one of the best places to start narrowing your search is to think about how much space you need. Do you need a Jeep for just yourself, or do you need a vehicle for your family? Do you need a vehicle that has plenty of space for cargo?  All Jeep models have seating for five passengers, but some vehicles are more spacious than others. Some may be better suited for 4-5 person families and some models have more space for cargo than others.

Reasons for buying

Is there a particular reason you want a Jeep? Do you want a Jeep because you have always liked the Jeep brand, or do you want a Jeep because you like the Jeep brand and its reputation for adventure and off-roading? Do you want something that is capable and luxurious? Jeep has it all.

If you are looking for a daily driver and you don’t plan to off-road much, you may consider a moderately-sized car that is fuel efficient, something like the Jeep Renegade or Jeep Compass.

But if you want a Jeep to go off the beaten path, you may want one of the Trail Rated Jeep models or one of the Trailhawk models. The Jeep Wrangler/ Wrangler Unlimited come standard with a 4×4 drivetrain, as do all four of the Trailhawk models, and they have excellent ground clearances.

If you want a luxury SUV, consider one of the luxury Grand Cherokee trims, like the Grand Cherokee Summit, Grand Cherokee Overland or Grand Cherokee SRT. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit and Grand Cherokee Overland are packed with amenities and high-end features. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT has all of that in addition to high-end performance because it is equipped with a 475-horsepower engine that accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds.
