Drivers shouldn’t have to sacrifice capability for comfort during their outdoor adventures. Our Jeep® dealership in Milbank, SD, has a variety of great vehicles that can handle your outdoor excursions with ease and get you where you need to be safely and comfortably. Here are a couple of sport utility vehicles we’d suggest if you’re looking for something new this summer.

The Jeep name is ubiquitous in the off-road world, and for good reason. The automaker’s trademark is a rugged, tough SUV that’s built to handle whatever nature throws at it. The 2019 Jeep Renegade is a great option for off-roading because of its available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System. Five different settings give you the option to navigate snowy, sandy, muddy, or rocky terrain with ease by optimizing the drivetrain settings to handle each environment.

Another great option is the 2019 Dodge Durango, which—despite its more traditional SUV appearance—is perfectly capable off the pavement. Four-wheel-drive and low-range gearing pair with three spacious rows of seats and an upgraded touchscreen interface to make for a luxurious riding experience that can still handle the path less traveled.

If you’re still undecided on which SUV is best for your summer road trips, call or stop by our dealership near Aberdeen today to learn more.
