Which Jeep Should You Get?

Traditionally, the Jeep Wrangler is the go-to off-roading vehicle for Jeep fans out there. It generally has the most off-roading features of any Jeep model. Many of the other Jeep models have been urbanized and in turn a bit less capable in the wild.

There is one other Jeep model that can challenge the Wrangler in that realm. The Jeep Cherokee's Trailhawk model has been given enough upgrades to hit the trail.

The Cherokee Trailhawk falls more in line with the looks of a modern SUV, with its own unique flair.
