3 Vehicles to Consider for Your Next Road Trip
Either way, when it comes to road trips, not all vehicles are created equal. There’s no way that old beater that breaks down every other week will make it across the country. Not safely, at least. You need a vehicle that’s adventurous as you are. Here are three vehicles you should consider for your next road trip.
Jeep Renegade Trailhawk
Road trips differ from person to person. Some are satisfied driving to the nearest big city while others need to go off the beaten path. The Jeep Renegade Trailhawk is for those whose road trips aren’t limited by asphalt. This compact crossover is built for off-road driving. It’s Trail Rated Tough, which means it can expertly handle a variety of different terrains, thanks to the Selec-Terrain Traction Control system. Want to bring some toys along for your trip? The Trailhawk can haul up to 2,000 pounds of extra cargo.
Off-road capability isn’t the only selling point of the Renegade. It also includes the Uconnect 6.5 NAV infotainment system so you can stay on track and entertained.
Not everyone needs to go off-roading to enjoy their road trip. For those who want a larger, more comfortable ride, consider the Dodge Durango. This SUV has three rows of comfortable, spacious seating and a grand total of 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Throw in the available 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine and you’ll feel like you’re driving one of Dodge’s muscle cars. All that power allows Durango drivers to haul up to 7,400 pounds, and thanks to Trailer Sway Control, you can be sure all wheels will stay on the ground. Electronic stability control and roll mitigation also ensure a smooth, stable ride.
The Chrysler Pacifica isn’t just a minivan. It’s an excellent family vehicle that will quickly become your favorite road trip ride. Stow ‘n Go Seating and Storage floor bins make it much easier to transport smaller cargo without taking up space in the cabin. Active noise cancellation will keep the little ones asleep, even if you’re driving through the middle of the big city. And to keep the kids entertained, consider the available Uconnect Theater, which places screens on the back of the driver and passenger seats.
At the end of the trip, when crumbs litter the seats and wrappers are scattered across the floor, the Pacifica’s in-car vacuum will make clean up quick and easy.
Don’t pass up the chance for a road trip just because your vehicle isn’t up to the task. Come down to Rairdon CDJ of Kirkland and find the perfect road trip vehicle for you.
