If you’re looking for a spacious luxury SUV that offers thrilling performance and superb off-road capability, the Jeep Grand Cherokee midsize SUV is a great choice. However, buying a brand-new vehicle may not be an option within your budget. In that case, you might want to look at a used car instead. Alternatively, you might simply prefer the excellent value that purchasing a used Grand Cherokee represents.
At Huffines CJDR Plano, drivers from Dallas, McKinney, Richardson, Carrolton, and the surrounding areas of Texas can find an extensive range of high-quality used cars, including many Grand Cherokee models. If you haven’t considered buying a pre-owned vehicle, we’ll look at some benefits of purchasing a used Jeep Grand Cherokee below.
Get the Features You Want
When you buy a new Jeep Grand Cherokee, you can choose from a variety of trim levels. They include luxurious cruisers, specialist off-road models, and track-bred models with jaw-dropping performance and upgraded suspension and braking systems. When you add in limited edition models and the many available packages and stand-alone options, the choices you have to make can be overwhelming.
Plus, you have a budget to consider. You might have a wish list of features, but the cost can easily rise beyond your reach. You may have to settle for a lower trim level or forego some of the add-ons you had decided on.
One of the greatest benefits of choosing a used Grand Cherokee is that you’re more likely to get the model you want with all of your desired features. For example, in the pre-owned Grand Cherokee inventory at Huffines CJDR Plano, you can find the stylish Limited trim, the Trailhawk with its V-6 engine and awesome off-road capability, or the Overland with its added touches of luxury. You can also choose rear-wheel drive or the go-anywhere four-wheel-drive system.
However attractive buying a new car might be, one of the biggest drawbacks is the depreciation a vehicle suffers as soon as you drive away from the showroom. The value of your new Jeep Grand Cherokee can fall by as much as 11% right away. After three years, your dream car’s value could have dropped by around 50% since the day you bought it. When you buy a pre-owned Grand Cherokee from Huffines CJDR Plano, you can take satisfaction in the fact that the original owner took the biggest depreciation hit.
Another advantage of buying a used Grand Cherokee is that you will pay less for your auto insurance. One of the major factors insurance companies take into account when deciding how much you pay is the cost of replacing the vehicle if it was totaled. For instance, it would cost much less to replace a 2018 Grand Cherokee than the latest model. Additionally, if you finance your used car with Huffines CJDR Plano, gap insurance won’t be needed, as depreciation isn’t the same issue as with a new car.
The Grand Cherokee Is Built to Last
When buying a used car in the past, you may have had concerns about its reliability and maintenance costs. But Jeep vehicles are built to last, and a well-looked-after Jeep Cherokee with 100,000 miles or more should look and feel almost as good as new. J.D. Power has awarded the Grand Cherokee a reliability score of 83 out of 100, which is classed as “Great.” According to data from Consumer Reports, models from 2014 to the current model year are the most reliable.
Also, at Huffines CJDR Plano, every used vehicle on our lot is subject to a meticulous inspection and certification program. So, when you buy a pre-owned Grand Cherokee from Huffines, you can be sure that in addition to getting the best value, you’ll be driving a safe and reliable car.
Grand Cherokee Advanced Technology
In-car technology seems to move forward so quickly that it’s hard to keep up. However, you don’t need to go without the latest high-tech features when you buy a later model used Jeep. For example, a 2018 Grand Cherokee Laredo gives you keyless entry and ignition, a 7-inch touch screen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, Bluetooth for hands-free calling and media streaming, and a rear parking camera.
An Overland model from the same year offers an 8.4-inch touch screen, a navigation system, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and auto-dimming mirrors. You can also find driver assistance features such as electronic stability control, brake assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, and more. Some models even feature advanced technology like parallel and perpendicular parking assist and a 360-degree surround camera system.
