5 BEST NEW JEEPS OF 2018
Whenever the Jeep is mentioned, an off-road monster car comes to mind. The American automaker has established itself as the King of Off-road Cars, evolving with time to meet the needs of its huge fan base. Of course it is very difficult to come up with a list of the best jeeps given the high standards that the automaker has set in each of its productions. However, we will try to list the best amongst the best in its latest SUV range.
2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Jeep offers several trim levels for the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee and whether you want speed or luxury you are assured of getting something that meets your needs in this lineup. Powered by a the supercharged V8 engine that emits 707hp, the Trackhawk trim is designed for those who love speed and power as it can cover 60 mph in 3.5seconds. On the other hand, the Summit is the luxurious, high-end trim level that houses several upgrades. The Jeep Grand Cherokee would be incomplete without a car that is designed specifically for heightened off-road abilities. The Trailhawk trim level comes with a to-die-for cabin and Jeep’s latest Uconnect system.
The 2018 Jeep Renegade
If there is one thing that will stand out in the 2018 Jeep Renegade, it is its interior. Jeep clearly went out of its way to ardon the Renegade’s cabin, making it plush and upscale. The 2018 model is fitted with a rearview camera and 5-inch screen as well as the Bluetooth smartphone connectivity. Although the Jeep Renegade has some of the best trims for off-roading and offers a nimble drive with smooth handling, it still has one of the highest fuel consumptions amongst vehicles in the subcompact SUV category.
2018 Jeep Cherokee
Like the Renegade, the Jeep Cherokee also boasts of one of the most upscale interior and in the 2018 model, this can be upgraded to include Wi-Fi hotspot, 8.4 inch touchscreen as well as a menu bar that can be customized. For those who ply off-road routes regularly, then the four wheel drive upgrade is a must. Despite its beauty and smooth ride, the Jeep Cherokee’s cargo space is still tight compared to rivals. Like other Jeep counterparts, fuel economy is also an issue with the Cherokee and the base model has a weak engine.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL
Jeep added several much-needed upgrades to the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, including safety technology and the Uconnect infotainment. Jeep does not compromise on the off-road abilities of the Wrangler and the 2018 version is not any different. However, fuel economy is a concern for the Wrangler.
The 2018 Jeep Compass
The Jeep Compass is one of the cheapest Jeeps and for a compact SUV has a lot to offer especially on the interior front. Not only does it have Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment system, it also comes with an easy to use menu that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Even though this model still has cargo space issues, Jeep also tried to make the 2018 Compass more spacious by installing several storage solutions.That said, the Compass still falls short in terms of its off-road abilities when compared to other Jeeps. This is mainly attributed to its underwhelming engine.
