Which Jeep is Right for Me?

The Jeep brand has endured for over 70 years providing award-winning vehicles that are as versatile as they are dependable. The company's motto of "go anywhere, do anything" was born in the heart of battle during World War II as the Jeep 4x4 emerged as the vehicle of choice for thousands of allied soldiers. After the war, the Jeep brand was the unmatched leader in 4x4 capabilities. It has maintained that level of superiority over the decades, adapting to technology to bring you a wide array of new vehicles with all the bells and whistles you would expect in a modern vehicle with the classic 4x4 handling of years gone by.

While deciding to buy a Jeep is usually an easy decision, the problem comes when deciding which model is best for you. There isn't a bad Jeep model, but there are certain factors that you should consider when selecting the one you purchase. Things you should consider are the size you need, how much cargo room is needed, whether you use it for a daily commute, or whether it needs to cover a wide range of terrain. Regardless of the option you choose, you will have safety and security knowing that you and your family are riding in one of the most reliable vehicles ever designed. Each option comes with all the standard safety features that are on the market today.

Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee

If you need a Jeep with plenty of passenger space and great cargo capacity, your best bet is the Jeep Cherokee or Jeep Grand Cherokee. Both models are known for their great off-road capabilities. Keep in mind that the Jeep Cherokee is considered a compact SUV while the Grand Cherokee is a midsize SUV. The Cherokee offers 25 cubic feet of cargo space that can be extended to 55 cubic feet with the seats folded. The Grand Cherokee has 36 cubic feet of cargo space that is almost doubled when the rear seats are folded to 68 cubic feet. Both models seat five passengers with 56 inches of hip space in both the front and rear seating and almost 40 inches of headroom throughout the vehicle.

Jeep Wrangler

When it comes to off-road capability, nothing comes close to the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sport. Nothing will come in your way of adventure. It comes with an amazing 285 horsepower and 260 pounds per foot of torque. It is also a Jeep Trail-Rated vehicle meaning it has been tested in traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, suspension, and water fording.

This new model comes with stronger axles, larger brakes, and 33-inch tires. It also has three available 4x4 systems and skid plates. You have the ability to tow up to 3,500 pounds with the four-door model and 2,000 pounds with the two-door model.

It isn't all just about the power maneuverability with the Wrangler; it also comes with state-of-the-art technology. It has a seven-inch touchscreen information system that integrates radio, maps, and Bluetooth audio streaming in addition to phone connection. The Jeep Wrangler also brings back the look and feel of the iconic WWII Jeep that started it all.

Jeep Renegade

If you need to slowly integrate into the Jeep family while staying on a budget, the Jeep Renegade might be the way to go. Kelley Blue Book has designated the Renegade as one of the 10 best SUVs under $25,000, but its overall price is well below that amount. The Jeep Renegade averages 22 miles per gallon and has a 184-horsepower engine. You have the option of an advanced four-wheel-drive system and it comes with the standard features of power windows, doors and locks as well as USB inputs and 16-inch wheels. You also have the option to upgrade to a five-inch touchscreen information system and review camera with lane departure warning. What the Renegade lacks in size it makes up for in creative storage solutions. It gives you the option of a split folding rear seat and an adjustable cargo floor, while passengers have side cargo pockets and easy access to USB ports.

Jeep Compass

The Jeep Compass has consistently been voted the best SUV on the market in its price range. Included features are heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a remote vehicle start, and panic device. It gets 23 miles per gallon in the city and an amazing 32 mpg on the highway. It also has a 2.4-liter engine, giving you 180 horsepower. Moreover, with its higher ground clearance, it gives you the ability to test out its advanced 4x4 capacity over terrain that is more rugged.

If you are looking for an affordable vehicle for your daily commute or a compact SUV for your family that will give you the safety and maneuverability of the Jeep brand, this is the best option for you. As an added bonus for the Compass, your rear passengers have access to their own adjustable air vents and USB ports, giving them added control and connectivity. Control is also increased for the driver by having several steering wheel control options available, allowing the driver to focus on driving only.

So Which is Best for You?

When in doubt the best option is to always go to your local dealer and test drive the various models of Jeep vehicles available. If you are looking for more of a daily commute vehicle over paved roads and only occasional off-road driving, your best options are the Jeep Compass or Jeep Renegade. If you want a larger Jeep option that affords you a little bit of luxury without compromising the 4x4 ability that Jeep has come to be known for, you want to go with the Jeep Cherokee or Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you want more of a go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle, then you are going to want to go with the Jeep Wrangler.
