Jeep is an 80-year-old brand that sticks to what it knows best - 4WDs and SUVs.
It has models in the 4x4 Large Ute (Gladiator), Mid-size 4x4 (Wrangler), Large SUV (Grand Cherokee), Mid-size SUV (Cherokee), and Compact SUV (Compass).
As you can see, it doesn’t have a wide offering of models like many other manufacturers but instead offers multiple options on its base models, such as bigger engines, luxury interiors, and its Trail Rated® models.
According to Jeep, Trail Rated® models (across the range) have passed a series of gruelling tests across five categories: l Traction, Water Fording, Manoeuvrability, Articulation and Ground Clearance.
So, if you’re not afraid to get your Jeep dirty … and then some … maybe this is an option worth considering.
