Graduating college is one of the most exciting (and most terrifying) times of a young adult’s life, mostly due to the fact that almost immediately following graduation comes the start of a new job that very likely is the first full-time, well-paying bit of employment that they’ve ever had.

Upon entering the adult world, however, recent graduates will want to drive around in something that not only looks professional but meets their needs in terms of budget and practicality, and in our short experience with the 2015 Jeep® Renegade, we’ve found that it does all the things a college graduate needs it to do. Perhaps that’s why Yahoo! Autos recently included it on their list of “The Best Cars for Graduates” this model year.

In particular, Yahoo! praises the way the Jeep Renegade looks, calling the modern-looking exterior design “sophisticated,” but even though this model looks different from anything else the automaker currently manufactures, its value goes way beyond aesthetics.

A major advantage of the 2015 Jeep Renegade, especially for recent grads, is its affordable price tag. The starting sticker price is well below $20,000 for a base-level Jeep Renegade model, which is ideal for recent grads that might be on a tight budget. While it may be more affordable than other models,  the Jeep Renegade also can do something a lot of the competition in the small crossover segment cannot: go off road.

That ability, plus the great price, and its slick looks, makes it among the most exciting new Jeep SUVs for sale at your friendly neighborhood Jeep dealership, Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM. Give us a call or stop by for a test drive any time, whether you’re a recent graduate or not!
