It’s no secret that SUVs and crossovers are popular right now. You’ll find plenty of models like this at Gesswein Motors right now. From Jeep® models to the latest Dodge vehicles, we make it easy to pick out the perfect SUV or crossover. What some drivers don’t realize is that there are actually some differences between these types of vehicles. From how they’re built to what they’re built for, our dealers can explain SUVs and crossovers differ.

Crossovers are big right now because they offer the best of both worlds. They have the extra cargo space of an SUV, along with fuel economy numbers closer to those you’d find in a car. A crossover model is actually built on the same platform as a car. It’s also built with a “unibody” construction. The body and frame are built together, resulting in a vehicle that’s a bit lighter than an SUV. A crossover also has “crumple zones” due to this construction method, making it safer in an accident. Some of the popular crossovers on our lot include the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and the 2018 Dodge Journey. They make for great family cars and they’re ideal for anyone who wants to go out to a campsite or park for a weekend getaway.

An SUV is built in a different way. A model like the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is one of the few “true” SUVs left. What this means is that they’re built on a platform that could be shared by a truck. The body and frame are built separately and joined together later. It makes for a durable vehicle that’s ideal for off-road excursions, towing, and more.
