Go Off-road with Jeep and Ram
When it comes to going off-road, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has a nice selection of vehicles. The two top automotive brands, not just for off-roading but also in sales, are Jeep® and Ram (Trucks). With the latest all-new 2019 Ram 1500 designed with more off-road capability, and the new model year of Jeep vehicles on the forefront, there’s plenty of options for consumers to choose from. Without trying to cherry pick, here’s a selection of some of the best off-road FCA vehicles.
2019 Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab 4×4
Looking for capability and luxury? The 2019 Ram 1500 Longhorn is one of the premium trims of the lineup, next to the old-west Laramie Longhorn trim. With a crew cab for more passenger room, and a 4×4 drivetrain for the off-road capability, this Ram truck will have a starting MSRP of $46,095. Consumers already get a great deal of a truck with automatic headlamps, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats front seats, heated rear seats, a rear power-sliding window, dual-zone climate control, remote tailgate release, and Uconnect 4 on an 8.4-inch touchscreen display. Consumers are also able to add-on a package for a one-inch suspension lift, available four-corner air suspension, an electronic-locking rear differential, and 32-inch on/off-road tires on (standard) 18- or (available) 20-inch wheels to provide additional grip.
2019 Ram Rebel Quad Cab 4×4
We know the Ram 1500 Rebel is an off-road capable truck. For those looking to get a little crazy, unless travelling with a group of enthusiasts, consumers may not need the extra passenger space. Because the 4×4 drivetrain comes standard, the MSRP starts at $44,795. Little surprising that it costs less than the Laramie with bells and whistles, right? Switching out for a crew cab will add $2800 if more passenger space is necessary. Who can really pass up an off-road ride built with an electronic-locking rear differential? The Rebel comes standard with coil spring suspension, a one-inch factory lift, Bilstein shocks, tow hooks, a front skid plate, and an available and exclusive air suspension lift kit? Plus, consumers can opt in for a 395hp 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, able to generate 410 lb-ft of torque for better off-road action.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
Although some would say the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is the better of the two models, some off-road enthusiasts swear by the Jeep Wrangler JK for the Unlimited Rubicon model. Rubicon trims were always viewed as the “Trailhawk” trim of the Wrangler, made for absolute off-road performance. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon came with the 4:1 Rock-Trac part-time 4WD system, only available on this trim and the Rubicon Recon. A starting MSRP of $37,445 also gets consumers a Sunrider soft top and an eight speaker system.
2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Elite 4×4
If looking for a small SUV by the Jeep name, many would advise to take a look at the Jeep Cherokee. For going off-road, getting the Trailhawk Elite with 4×4 brings the MSRP up to $36,690. Not that bad for the second-to-highest tier trim. Equipped with the Jeep Active Drive II and Active Drive Lock 4×4 systems, this is one capable off-road SUV. Consumers also get heated front row seats, ventilated front seats, and automatic temperature control as standard features. Uconnect 4 on an 8.4-inch touchscreen display also comes standard with steering wheel mounted audio controls, voice command with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto.
