If you are looking for an off-road or a sports utility vehicle, Jeep certainly develops among the best vehicles on the market for this purpose. Although these vehicles may not be the best on fuel, you will find that they are quite comfortable and reliable to drive around. Jeeps have been made for a very long time and were even used back in the 2nd world war. Today’s Jeeps have a ton of different features and price points that may interest you.

If you are looking to spend a decent chunk of money on a Jeep, but don’t want to grab the highest MSRP Jeep available, you may like the Renegade, the all new Compass, the Cherokee or the Jeep Wrangler. These vehicles have larger engines in them and more towing capacity as a result. You will have to decide whether you are looking for an off-road vehicle in a Wrangler or if you want a sports utility vehicle in the other three models.

Jeep and Auto Theft:

Jeeps are extremely popular off-road vehicles and for this reason, you definitely need to worry about auto theft. Generally, when people steal Jeeps they are going to be using it off-roading, which is why you might not get it back if it gets stolen from you. In 2013 the National Insurance Crime Bureau ranked Jeep Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee as the 8th most stolen vehicle. For this reason, you are going to want to consider protecting yourself from theft. It is a good idea to not only lock your doors when you exit your Jeep but to keep your keys hidden and out of reach. The best way to protect yourself is to make sure that you have comprehensive insurance coverage on your Jeep so that you can be sure the insurance company has your back if your vehicle happens to be stolen or broken into.

Jeep and Your Safety:

Since these vehicles are largely meant for the purpose of off-roading, they are capable and sport, they are capable of taking quite a beating. If you are looking to get a safe vehicle, you definitely can’t go wrong if you decide to pick up a Jeep. These vehicles have a ton of safety features in their designs that help to keep you safe both off and on the road. Here are the common safety traits that Jeep vehicles possess:

Leveling Headlights:

If you have ever been driving down the road only to forget to turn your high beams off when you approach another vehicle, you will love this design. The car will lower your headlights for you so that you don’t have to worry about blinding other cars in front of you potentially causing an accident. A very good safety feature that just makes driving easier and keeps your focus on the road.

Turn Signals:

Side swiping other vehicles is one way that collisions are caused. This is generally when the person beside you is attempting to pass and you forget to check your blind spot before moving over a lane. Jeep has incorporated turn lights onto its mirrors in order to make sure that the vehicles behind you know where you are headed so that they can plot their course accordingly.

Electronic Stability:

Especially when you are going off-roading, you will find that it is relatively easy to lose control of your vehicle. In muddy and bumpy conditions or when going around bends, Jeeps are designed to recognize when you have lost control and they will automatically cut power and apply brakes as needed to give you back control of the vehicle.

Safety Ratings for a Jeep:

One of the best ways to tell if a vehicle is safe to drive is to see how it actually performs when someone crashes the vehicle. Regular people don’t crash their vehicles to test this, but there are a few companies that do. Here are the IIHS results for Jeep models in 2017:
