Why a Jeep® Is Great for New College Students | Decatur, IN

Jeep® is one of the most popular SUV brands on the market, and it's known for the classic Wrangler as well as newer models like the Renegade and the Gladiator. Jeep® models are particularly well-suited for college students given the brand's versatile SUV designs, safety features, and affordability. Great for bookworms as well as athletes, Jeep® has something for any young driver.

Versatile Design
Jeep® models come with capable designs that can handle a range of daily activities.

• For example, the sporty Wrangler is great for those who love to hike or travel through nature, as this SUV has a tall ride height and three different 4×4 options.

• The Cherokee is roomy and comfortable for long trips, offering a more refined ride than other Jeep® models. Plus, the generous 68.3 cubic feet of cargo volume gives you plenty of room for carrying totes and furniture to and from college.

• For the money-conscious student, the fuel-sipping powertrain on the Renegade gets an average 32 mpg on the highway.*

There's no shortage of possibilities when you choose Jeep®.

Safety Features
You can stay safe behind the wheel thanks to a variety of smart safety systems on new Jeep® SUVs. Available tools include Blind Spot Monitoring to alert you of danger you might not see, Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning, and a Lane Departure Warning. ParkSense® Rear Park Assist and a backup camera uses sensors to help you reverse in busy campus parking lots, while remote start and Keyless Enter N' Go™ makes it easier to get in and rolling when you're late for class.

Jeep® is also a smart choice for college students because these SUVs look great, but they don't cost an arm and a leg. For instance, KBB.com named the Wrangler the most affordable off-road vehicle to own in 2019, while the Wrangler Unlimited won the 5-Year Cost to Own award from JD Power. These are just some of the awards and accolades that highlight the affordability of Jeep® brand vehicles.
