SUVs for Towing

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

AutoTrader.com has honored the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango with its Must-Shop SUVs for Towing award, which recognizes SUVs that offer the best combination of towing ability and interior luxury.

The Grand Cherokee features a refined exterior and interior design, complete with bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, Natura leather, exotic open-pore wood trim, and unique color offerings. Under the hood, the massive 240 horsepower 420 lb-ft of torque 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 is capable of towing a best-in-class 7,400 pounds while still delivering best-in-class fuel economy at 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

The Dodge Durango also leads its class in capability by matching the Grand Cherokee’s 7,400 pound tow rating with its 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which can also automatically turn off cylinders when less power is needed to save fuel. Inside, the Durango features a redesigned center stack with two touch screens, a high-tech instrument cluster, and an available high-def dual-screen Blue-ray entertainment system.

Chrysler’s Lucky Number is Seven

The Edwards Commitment Scale

Chrysler makes some of the most beloved vehicles in America. They are an American car company that knows what people in this country look for in a new car and they offer a lineup featuring some of the most recognizable models in the market. This sentiment was further vindicated by a new consumer survey by Strategic Vision in which seven Chrysler vehicles took home honors.

In the survey, consumers were asked to rank attributes of their vehicle and dealership experience on the “The Edwards Commitment Scale™ [which] ranges from 1=Hate it, 2=a Failure, 3=Unsatisfactory, 4=Satisfactory, 5=Excellent, 6=Delightful and 7=Love it” according to a Chrysler press release. This information was then used to determine the “Most Loved Vehicles” list, with the highest scoring vehicles given the honorary title.

The survey included choices for several categories of vehicles including small car, large car, mid-sized SUV, specialty coupe, full-size pickup, and heavy duty pickup. The biggest winner was the Dodge brand which brought in four of the seven spots. Additionally, RAM took two and Jeep netted the final spot.

  • Dodge Dart (small car)
  • Dodge Durango (mid-sized SUV)
  • Dodge Charger (large car)
  • Dodge Challenger (specialty coupe)
  • Jeep® Grand Cherokee (mid-sized SUV)
  • Ram 1500 (full-size pickup)
  • Ram 2500 (heavy duty pickup)

Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is happy to offer our customers all of the “Most Loved Vehicles in America” so stop in today or visit us online to see just what makes our cars, trucks and SUVs so popular.
