SUVs are amazing automobiles, not only because they pack the power and storage space of larger vehicles, but because they also can handle like smaller ones and tote around families like minivans. They are jacks of all trades, quite frankly, but one thing consumers very often forget is just how much fun they can be to drive and own.
As your friendly neighborhood Jeep dealership, we of course are of the firm belief that Jeep SUVs are particularly fun, but thanks to Kelley Blue Book’s recent list of “10 Most Fun SUVs,” customers don’t just have to take our word for it. With three vehicles on the list, Jeep proved to be this year’s most enjoyable auto brand, thanks in large part to the 2015 Jeep Wrangler, 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and 2015 Jeep Renegade, all of which made the final cut.
These are three pretty different automobiles, but each of them is undeniably fun in its own unique way. The Wrangler, for starters, is known for being the king of off-roading, which explains its place as the second-rated vehicle on the list. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, meanwhile, is praised for its muscle-car engine that produces 475 hp, enough to get it up from zero-to-60 mph in a scant 4.8 seconds, which is extremely impressive for an SUV that size. Finally, the Renegade is included because it too can off-road, but does so in a segment where vehicles typically don’t even attempt such bumpy driving.
Truthfully, Jeep always has been a really fun brand, but it’s definitely nice to see three Jeep vehicles included on a list that specifically recognizes fun brands.
