Three Perfect Models for Those Looking to Lease a Jeep
Those seeking a new SUV will naturally eye Jeep’s impressive crop of vehicles. Of course, a portion of these potential buyers will run into an issue when they recognize the price tags of these SUVs. Jeep’s vehicles aren’t any more expensive than other brands’ offerings, but you’ll still have to pay a relatively hefty price if you want to drive around in an SUV.
Fortunately, Jeep provides a way for drivers to experience its impressive vehicles without having to dish out a lot of money. The brand offers lease options on all of its vehicles, and this route provides several advantages to buyers. First, someone leasing a Jeep isn’t locked into the vehicle long-term, and they won’t have any issues upgrading once their contract has ended. Furthermore, these monthly fees can be more affordable than what you’ll be paying monthly for a purchased Jeep.
There are several 2017 Jeep models that are particularly good choices for those looking to lease an SUV. Take a look! We guarantee that you’ll be pursuing a Jeep lease in no time.
2017 Jeep Patriot
The Jeep Patriot is widely regarded as one of the most affordable SUVs on the market, but that fact shouldn’t discount what the vehicle has to offer. In fact, the incredible price tag should only reaffirm why this is the perfect model for you.
The impressive SUV is just as capable as the brand’s other offerings, accentuated by Jeep’s decision to badge its Patriots with the iconic Trail Rated distinction. This decision makes plenty of sense, as the Patriot offers a pair of engines that will get you through any type of terrain.
When equipped on the 4×2 version of the SUV, the 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve I4 engine will offer 158 horsepower and 141 pounds-feet of torque. When matched to the five-speed manual transmission, drivers can also expect a 30 mile per gallon highway fuel efficiency. They can even monitor their fuel situation, thanks to the oil change monitoring system. For even more power, buyers can pursue the 2.4-liter DOHC 16-valve I4 World Engine (172 horsepower, 165 pounds-feet of torque).
The Patriot is an especially good choice for those looking for a winter upgrade. While the price tag would imply that the Jeep Patriot isn’t chock full of luxury features, there are still plenty of amenities that will satisfy any passenger. The heated seats will allow you to escape the cold during the winter, while the Automatic Temperature Control system will continue to maintain the temperature inside of the cabin, regardless of the temperature outside.
Terms: $149/month for 36 months, with a $2,999 fee due at lease signing.
2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
When you think of a Jeep Wrangler (especially the “Unlimited” version) you’re probably picturing an intimidating SUV that can battle through any condition. This certainly isn’t untrue, but potential buyers should remember everything else that this specific model has to offer.
The exterior of the Wrangler Unlimited is highlighted by the versatility of the vehicle. Drivers can opt to go with no top, a soft top, or a hardtop during their excursions through the woods, and they can remove the doors and windows if they’re seeking even more adventure. The tire offerings all provide the necessary traction and control to get through any type of environment, and the iconic round headlamps will improve the driver’s ability to see in the dark, especially when the LED headlamps and fog lamps are included.
The interior is just as impressive, offering a number of features that will provide more convenience and comfort. For starters, potential buyers can choose between a number of different seat options, including the premium McKinley leather trim. The steering wheel controls will allow you to manipulate whatever entertainment system you opt for, including the innovative Radio 430N system with Uconnect Navigation. The lockable center console will let drivers secure their most valuable cargo, while the drain plugs will make cleaning your interior easier than ever.
Of course, as we mentioned, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is still known for its driving capabilities, and the 2017 version of the SUV certainly delivers. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine provides all the power necessary via its 285 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque. The pair of 4×4 systems will improve control and traction, with the Dana 44 heavy-duty axle and the sway bar disconnect system keeping your vehicle upright.
Terms: $289/month for 36 months, with a $2,999 fee due at lease signing.
2017 Grand Cherokee SRT
You’re unlikely to find a more impressive Jeep model than the Grand Cherokee SRT, and that’s certainly reflected in the pricey value of the vehicle. Fortunately, leasing this SUV makes those monthly payments a lot more tolerable.
Why is the Grand Cherokee SRT one of the brand’s top models? Where do you even start? The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine provides an incredible 475 horsepower and 470 pounds-feet of torque, and the eight-speed automatic transmission will allow you to cater to specific driving conditions. The Selec-Track system provides even more customization, as drivers can choose between a variety of driving modes that will alter your Cherokee’s suspension, torque distribution, and stability. The included Eco Mode and Fuel Saver Technology truly puts this model’s capabilities over the top.
The interior matches the opulence of luxury vehicles, highlighted by the Nappa leather trim seats (with perforated suede). The UConnect system provides an influx of performance data, and drivers can also access their preferred applications, media, or radio stations.
We can’t forget the exterior, which may be one of the most striking in the entire SUV segment. The blacked-out front end provides a sporty, intimidating look, while the advanced headlights will provide unmatched illumination. The three impressive wheel options (including the remarkable 20-inch low gloss black spider monkey wheels) will have fellow drivers ogling, but you won’t even notice as you’re enjoying the fresh air via the dual-pane panoramic sunroof.
Terms: $804/month for 36 months, with a $3,699 fee due at lease signing.
It’s important to remember that each dealership may have their own terms and conditions when it comes to leasing. Either way, there’s no denying the financial incentives of leasing a new Jeep, and this route may allow you to drive around in your preferred SUV!
