At SOUTHFORK Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we strive to provide the Houston area with a place where they can find their next new Jeep vehicle thanks to our many options and expertise to help you with a smart and informed choice. With the Jeep brand, you're getting rugged utility and luxury all rolled into one among many different choices, and determining which one is right for you can seem like a daunting task with so many standout options. But, that's where we are here to help.

We've put together a handy guide that will help you figure out which Jeep vehicle is right for you and which one you should by as we highlight all the key features, advantages, and more so you can have all the information at your disposal and find the right match.

Jeep Compass

The Jeep Compass provides drivers with a compact vehicle option that's designed for people who want the Jeep experience, but also something that works in urban areas, like Houston while being finely designed taking many cues from the Grand Cherokee. It boasts plenty of features at an affordable cost, including the likes of a likes of ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera, plus Uconnect® and a five-inch display for convenience and entertainment features. Like all Jeep vehicles, the Compass offers many different options in terms of styles and trim levels for you to choose from, plus provides you with available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management, and a best in class 4x4 fuel economy with up to 32 miles per gallon on the highway on an ample 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine that produces 180 horsepower.

These features give the Compass plenty of appeal, and if you need a SUV that is just the right blend of giving you something equal parts stylish and rugged, while also being a standout city cruiser, the Compass makes for a fine choice.

Jeep Cherokee

Both the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee have proven to be immensely popular here in Houston, and across the nation. It's all with good reason, too. These original trailblazers of the Jeep lineup provide people with lots of style and features.

With the Cherokee, which is the small of the two vehicles, you're getting a comfortable and capable ride that provides you with standout amenities like Uconnect® and connected features, as well as that added bit of toughness you've come to expect. There's power from either a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, or a 3.2-liter V6 engine. We recommend the four-cylinder option for Houston drivers who are going to mostly be sticking to pavement when driving, and the powerful V6 for those who might look to go off the beaten path, in particular the Cherokee Trailhawk which offers features like bigger tires and tow hooks.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Grand Cherokee boasts many of the same features that you're going to find in terms of technology, but as the flagship vehicle of the Jeep lineup, the Grand Cherokee offers rugged luxury for all while being more spacious, powerful, and versatile over the Cherokee. It provides four different engines ranging from V6 to HEMI® V8, has three different four-wheel drive systems, and provides ample space, comfortable and luxurious feel, and more. Any one of the Grand Cherokee vehicles provides you with the ideal balance and provides satisfaction for many miles.

For each of these vehicles, drivers who are seeking something that gives them the best of luxury and rugged core, in two different size options, both the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee have reason to stand out for you.

Jeep Renegade

Since SUVs have rapidly increased their popularity over recent years, one of the newest editions to the Jeep lineup, the Jeep Renegade, provides people with a small SUV option. As a very capable option, the Renegade provides you with the choice of a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine, or a 2.4-liter option. There's also plenty of standout features like the choice of 60/40 or 40/20/20 folding seats for added versatility in the compact frame, along with three different Uconnect® systems, and an optional dual-panel open air roof.

With its unique design and compact build the Renegade makes for a good choice among those who are looking for an everyday vehicle that provides impressive features for its price point and size, and is able to handle your daily commute, plus some if you opt up for the likes of the Trailhawk edition.

Jeep Patriot

If you want the most value in terms of price, the Jeep Patriot is the choice for you. Starting at just over $16,000 for the base Sport edition with front-wheel drive, you're getting the Jeep pedigree, style, and more. With its boxed frame, people know it's unmistakably a Jeep vehicle, while also providing you with Freedom Drive, which allows you to perform at higher levels than similar vehicles in its segment. This is able to happen thanks to the innovation Jeep puts into all its vehicles, especially when it comes to being able to command your vehicle as you drive through rough weather and low-traction conditions, on and off the beaten path.

Along with other technology features, the Jeep Patriot fits the bill for Houston drivers who want an affordable ride that gives them standout experiences with the brand and behind the wheel, and is certainly worth checking out.

Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited

Always a popular choice here in our showroom, the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited offer you the chance to drive in an iconic vehicle that certainly showcases the brand's rugged features and capabilities. That of course includes the shape of the vehicle, plus the ability to take the top down and doors off and hit the outdoors as these vehicles are made for tackling off the beaten path.

Both the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited are very similar in their underpinnings, the only difference is the Wrangler is a two-door option with a soft and hard top option while the Wrangler Unlimited is a four-door, removable hardtop option. But, both still feature a 3.6-liter V6 with 285 horsepower and Command-Trac which splits the power 50/50 when four-wheel drive is engaged for a firm grip of the road, rocks, dirt and all else. You've also got features like drain plugs in the interior to wash out that adventure that comes into the ride after a long day out on the trail.

This of course makes both the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited the vehicles of choice for people who go off the beaten path and love driving on the trail and want the vehicle that has been known to conquer it, while also providing lots of thrills and fun, too.
