Jeep Ownership Guide

Jeep Ownership Guide

Congratulations! You’ve decided to join a community of adventure seekers who understand that roads are always optional. We can’t wait to help you navigate through this exciting shopping experience and hear all about your travels around Saline, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor, MI.

Before you can embark on your maiden voyage, though, you first need to learn more about Jeep, its vehicles, and their various features. To help with that, we at LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) of Saline have created this Jeep ownership guide. Let’s get started!

Jeep Models

The first rule of Jeep ownership is knowing your options. Whether you’re looking for an SUV with grand accommodations or one that lets you get an up-close look at nature, Jeep has what you’re looking for thanks to its wide selection of models.

Use this Jeep model guide to help decide which one fits your lifestyle:

I Want a Vehicle That’s Tough & Rugged

If your favorite place in town in Bundy Hill Off Road, you need a Jeep that’s up for anything life throws your way. For that, we recommend the Jeep Wrangler or Jeep Gladiator.

The Wrangler lets you remove the roof and doors for an intimate experience with puddles when you go mudding.

The Gladiator has a 60.3-inch long cargo bed and a 7,650-pound maximum towing capacity when properly equipped, so you can bring along your small trailer to make your trip span the whole weekend.




I Want a Vehicle That’s My Personal Oasis

When you choose to drive the Jeep Cherokee or Jeep Grand Cherokee, you’ll have access to premium amities to help you relax.

First- and second-row passengers are treated to expansive views inside the Jeep Cherokee thanks to the available Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof.

Available first-row massaging seats and optional multicolor ambient lighting are a small sampling of the mood-boosting features offered with the Grand Cherokee.


I Want a Vehicle That’s a Mix of Rugged & Relaxing

Jeep Renegade Driving on StreetFor those who want the best of both worlds, there’s the Jeep Renegade and Jeep Compass.

The Renegade comes with the available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System to help optimize performance on various surfaces while the optional Sun and Sound Group 9-speaker system provides a concert-worthy sound experience.
The Compass comes optionally with an advanced 4×4 system to help keep you safe on your off-road adventures while more than 75 standard and available safety features are offered to help keep you safe on everyday travels.




Must-Know Jeep Ownership Features

Now that you have a better idea of which Jeep model is your road-companion soulmate, it’s time to learn more about the types of features you’ll enjoy with Jeep ownership.

Jeep Trail Rated® Badge

Jeep Wrangler Climbing Over Small HillFor those hardcore adventurers, there’s the Trail Rated® badge. This all-terrain honor awarded to select Jeep models provides assurance the vehicle of your choosing is up for whatever rocky road or steep terrain comes your way.

To wear the Trail Rated® badge with pride, a vehicle must pass five grueling tests in these off-road categories:

  • Traction
  • Water fording
  • Maneuverability
  • Articulation
  • Ground clearance

The Trail Rated® badge lets you know that your Jeep can handle uneven roads with ease.


Jeep 4×4 Systems

What’s so special about the all-wheel drive systems offered from Jeep? They’re tested in some of the most inhospitable locations. Some of the systems you can choose form include:

  • Quadra-Trac®: Uses sensors to constantly monitor wheel slip and provide necessary traction when it’s needed. Certain versions can also provide up to 100 percent of torque to one back wheel for superior handling.
  • Command-Trac®: Provides a quiet 4×4 system that focuses on creating a smooth ride while you tackle rough terrain.
  • Active Drive: Helps reduce fuel consumption by using front-wheel drive in normal conditions. It can automatically switch to the traction-boosting system at the detection of low-traction surfaces.

No matter which Jeep you choose, you can feel confident that you’ll commute with the necessary traction.

Jeep Uconnect® System

Jeep UConnect SystemWhether you’re headed to work or climbing a steep incline, having your favorite tunes by your side makes the ride that much more fun. That’s why part of Jeep ownership means gaining access to Uconnect®.

This infotainment system makes it easy to connect your smartphone via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Other features of Uconnect® include:

  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio capability
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Built-in Fire TV
