The world likes to operate on an either-or basis; you’re either a dutiful employee or a tough-as-nails offroader. In reality, there’s no reason why two seemingly opposite qualities can’t reside in the same person. And by extension, there’s no reason your vehicle can’t have the best of both worlds.
Fortunately, SUVs prove that you can have the off roading capabilities of a truck and the driving comfort offered by a van. Indeed, while overall car sales have dipped year-on-year in January, sales of these versatile vehicles have actually grown by 6.5%–proof that more and more people are appreciating the benefits of owning an SUV.
If you’re in the market for an SUV, one option worth checking out is the 2016 Jeep Cherokee. As you’ll soon see, it’s perfect both everyday driving and for off-road adventuring:
Perfect for John the Manager
John spends most of his driving time commuting to and from work. As such, gas mileage is an important factor to him. The newest iteration of the best-selling Cherokee proudly boasts an EPA rating of 25 miles per gallon (mpg), getting him a lot of bang for his buck.
John is also the family’s designated driver, which means he’s in charge of picking up the kids from school or driving his wife to the grocery store. Thankfully, features like anti-lock brakes and traction control help keep his family safe on the road.
Perfect for John the Offroader
But every now and then, John and his buddies want to take an off-road trip for the weekend. Good thing the Cherokee has a ground clearance of 8.8 inches, a departure angle of 32 degrees, and an approach and ramp breakover angle of 30 and 23 degrees respectively, making it more than capable of conquering obstacles on the trail.
John also likes to take an occasional fishing trip, which means hauling out and towing his beloved boat. No worries, though: this Cherokee can haul loads up to 907 kilograms–an entire U.S. ton!
