Which Jeep Fits your 40's Lifestyle Best: The 2019 Jeep Wrangler or Jeep Grand Cherokee

Let's face it, you're not the youngster you used to be.  But that doesn't mean you've lost your sense of adventure.  Jeep is looking out for you when you still have the need to explore.  But with so many models and trims to choose from, which is the right pick to soothe your adventurous spirit?  Slingerland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Corunna wants to help by comparing the 2019 Jeep Wrangler and 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee:

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is built with a plush interior that makes driving comfortable and fun. A standard 295-horsepower V6 engine that packs pretty of punch, will get you from Flint to Owosso before you even realize it. Or you can power up to a plucky 475-horsepower V8.  You'll never get lost on your way from Flushing to Swartz Creek, thanks to the navigations system that comes on the available infotainment package.

The Grand Cherokee provides 36.3 cubic inches of cargo space, which is ideal for anyone looking who has to carry extra sports gear or making multiple trips to the grocery store.

As SUVs go, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is fuel efficient, getting an EPA estimated 18 mpg in the City and 25 on the highway. The Uconnect system is among the best infotainment packages available.  The optional rear-seat entertainment and in-car Wi-Fi makes prevents anyone inside your Jeep Grand Cherokee from getting bored.

The Grand Cherokee has plenty of available safety and driver-assist features. Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping assist and parking assist features make you feel like someone is watching out for you on the road, even if other drivers are not.

The Jeep Wrangler:

Just because you're growing up, doesn't mean you need to let go of your need to breath fresh air or explore destinations off the paved road. The Wrangler has built its reputation as a premiere off-road vehicle thanks to its design and safety features. But just because it is built to go off-road, doesn't mean you have to take it there.

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is engineered with a quiet cabin and offers a smooth ride. Its V6 engine can get you on and off the interstate quickly and efficiently. The interior cabin feels more comfortable than longtime fans of the model may be used to, thanks to updates to the front seats and climate control system.

There are so many technology features inside the Wrangler, you will forget you're driving a SUV that is geared for ruggedness. Its Uconnect infotainment system has an available 8.4-inch touchscreen with crisp graphics and a layout that is clear and easy-to-maneuver. It makes smartphone integration a snap.  Blind-spot monitoring and parking lot proximity warnings are available.

Evolution of Jeep Wrangler

The Wrangler has become so much a part of Americana that there is almost a club-like fascination with the feeling of freedom and utility that comes with the Wrangler. It has come a long way from its roots as a World War II military tool. Now it serves as the daily vehicle for millions of families, every year.

The early iterations of the Jeep Wranglers included the YJ in the mid-to-late 80's and 90's. It was designed for the weekend warrior, thanks to its ability to go off-road geared engineering. It wasn't until the early 90's when they started including features aimed for comfort and more daily driving.

In the late 1990's, the Jeep Wrangler started becoming a more practical option for everyday status.  The frame became stiffer and the addition of coil springs would give drivers a smoother ride. That limited the rattle and clanks that were customary in prior versions. In 2007, the Wrangler started making a four-door jeep. Then traction and stability control created a safer ride.

That brings us to the current version of the Jeep Wrangler, the Wrangler JL. It takes all the trial and errors of previous model years and has perfected them into the ideal Jeep for off-road and paved road driving. More safety, driver-assist and technology features bring the Wrangler into the 21st Century, while maintaining the feeling of freedom and individuality drivers crave. Freedom that comes in the form of its unique removeable roof, doors or in some cases, foldable front windshield.
