What Type of Jeep® Vehicle is Best for my Needs?

March 9th, 2020 by

If there’s one thing that’s for sure when it comes to buying a new vehicle, it’s that there’s no shortage of choice. With a nearly endless array of makes, models, and price points available, knowing where to start when looking for a car can be overwhelming. Here at Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM near Elgin, it’s not unusual for us to help customers choose between a Jeep Wrangler and a Jeep Gladiator.

How to determine the best type of vehicle for your needs

There are several factors to consider when approaching the car-buying process. For example, while both the Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator use the same frame, the models offer different features.

Car, truck, van, or SUV? Think about how you’ll be using the vehicle, and who (or what) will need to be in it most frequently. If you’re a family of five with a dog, an SUV or a minivan will provide more space and comfort than a sedan. If you’re a contractor and regularly hauling tools and building materials, a Jeep truck may be preferable to an SUV. If you mostly drive alone and commute to and from work and run errands, a compact car may serve you well.

What’s your budget? Consider everything here, including your down payment, trade-in, and how much you can afford for monthly payments on an auto loan. Your Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM sales adviser can help you determine a payment that works for you.

What’s your style? Sure, we don’t wear a car like we wear clothes, but your vehicle can definitely reflect your personal style. Most vehicles are available in a variety of trim levels and with customizable features like options packages and paint colors, so once you’ve narrowed down to your preferred type of car, you can start having fun to make it your own.
