The Best Vehicles for a Summer Road Trip

roadJeep Grand Cherokee Diesel

If you’re looking for a perfect vehicle that you’ll (hopefully) only have to fill up with gas once, look no further than the Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel. When equipped with the 3.0-liter diesel engine, this Jeep returns 22 city and 30 highway mpg with V-8-esque acceleration. A full tank of gas in this Jeep can take you more than 600 miles, which costs, on average, $70. This Grand Cherokee also has plenty of room for both passengers and luggage as well as luxury amenities for comfort and off-road capabilities, which are just a few reasons why this vehicle made our list.

Chrysler Town and Country

If you’re looking to travel in comfort with more than four passengers, this Chrysler minivan is your best choice. The large sliding rear doors with low ride height make entering and exiting this vehicle easy and convenient. Plus, all 2015 Chrysler Town and Country’s three rows of seats come standard with leather. To top it off, the second row features captain’s chairs for added comfort with Stow ‘n’ Go functionality that provides you with even more luggage room if needed. Other standard convenience features include a power liftgate and a rearview backup camera.

Ford Mustang With Optional Convertible Top

Very little beats the wind whipping through your hair with the radio blasting while you tackle those back-country roads. After its complete redesign in 2015, the Ford Mustang is a faster, smoother, and more futurist-looking pony than before. This sports car features 305 horsepower on the base V-6 engine, a six-speaker sound system, and a 4.2-inch touch screen with entertainment and navigation options. You definitely won’t be bored or get lost when driving a Mustang on your road trip.

Dodge Viper

Surprised? You shouldn’t be after reading this! The Dodge Viper is actually one of the best cars to drive on the highway. Designed to soak up road bumps and featuring wide tires that glide over potholes, the Viper is one smooth-riding car that will make you feel as if you’re driving on air. The interior gives way to luxurious leather seats, and the V-10 engine produces 640 horsepower, making this Dodge a perfect choice for getting in touch with the open road. Plus, the gorgeous exterior styling will make you admire sheet metal in an entirely new way.

Any one of the vehicles listed above will get you to your destination in style, comfort, and luxury. See you on the open road!
