3 Most Affordable New Jeep Models
As a car manufacturer, Jeep has been offering SUVs since long before they were cool. The company has had time to perfect the design and to offer better details than the competition. Here are a few of the reasons why Jeep should be your company of choice when it comes to new sport-utility bargains.
1. The Wrangler
Every Jeep carries some of the DNA of that original all-terrain all-star from World War II, but the Wrangler is definitely its most direct descendant. The Wrangler combines Army sensibilities with civilian luxuries, with an interior you can wash out with a garden hose and an available Alpine sound system that lets you broadcast your favorite tunes all across the beautiful back roads of the USA. If you want to drive anywhere, roads or no, the Wrangler is definitely your best bet.
The 2016 Wrangler is one of Autobytel’s top 10 best-value SUVs, and it holds records with Kelley Blue Book for best resale value. The MSRP starts at just $23,895, making it an affordable vehicle even by sedan standards. You might also want to look at the Wrangler Unlimited, which is the four-door version of the Wrangler.
2. The Renegade
For people looking for a small SUV with less utility and more sport, the Renegade may be just the thing for you. The Renegade is a subcompact crossover SUV, making it about as small as the Wrangler but with the sensibilities of a more modern SUV. You might wonder what makes the Renegade different from a compact hatchback, and the answer is simple: The Renegade is far more off-road ready than any hatchback. 4×4 drive is available on all trim levels and exclusive to two, and the Renegade Trailhawk’s capability has to be seen to be believed.
The 2016 Renegade is also one of Jeep’s least expensive offerings, with a starting MSRP of $17,995 and an estimated 31 highway mpg. It’s also one of Autobytel’s 10 Best SUVs for the Money and Consumers Digest Best Buy.
3. The Compass
The Compass is larger and more expensive than the Renegade, but the 2016 model’s MSRP still comes in at an inexpensive $19,695 and offers up to 30 highway mpg with the right setup. The Compass combines the power and control to tackle any road surface with a luxurious interior that can make it hard to remember you’re driving a real bargain. Interior features include premium cloth or leather seats, an acoustic glass windshield that keeps the interior quiet, and the available Radio 430N with satellite radio, voice commands, and audio streaming.
When you get a Jeep, you aren’t just getting one of the best off-road vehicles on the market, you’re buying it for one of the best bargains you can get for a new vehicle. Generations of Jeep engineers have worked on the company’s offerings to provide customers with the most all-terrain ability for the lowest prices possible, and thanks to them the current lineup is full of great deals from top to bottom.
