Prospective car buyers interested in used Jeep models in New York may want to check out the Grand Cherokee, which was fully redesigned in 2005 to become more functional and luxurious.
The ’05 Grand Cherokee is five inches longer and runs on a wider track and longer wheelbase than previous models, making it roomier and even more stable in terms of handling, according to Inside Line.
Chrysler‘s new engine may be the biggest upgrade, which went from a respectable 4.7-liter V8 in the 2004 model to a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 in the 2005 Grand Cherokee.
The interior of the vehicle has also been totally redone and comes loaded with available options. The limited model comes with heated seats, a sunroof, a DVD player and Bluetooth technology.
“The all-new Grand Cherokee manages to retain its classic style and unparalleled off-road ability while delivering a level of luxury never before seen in a Jeep,” says Edmunds.com. “If you’re looking for a true 4×4 that’s also refined and comfortable enough to drive in the suburbs, this is a must-see.”
The only major options that a loaded-up 2005 Grand Cherokee does not come with are skid plates and a tow hitch.
Used Jeep Libertys in New Jersey could seem safer to car shoppers after they hear about a recent 50-car pileup that occurred in the Tri-State Region.
When most people imagine shocking car accidents, they picture collisions happening late on a Friday or Saturday night. But Rick and Beverly Belden, along with dozens of other motorists, were involved in an incident that occurred early one Sunday afternoon, according to the Connecticut Post.
“We jammed on the brakes and started to slide toward the pileup,” Mr Belden told the news source of his accident. The couple were on their way to a late breakfast in their 2003 Jeep Liberty when they became involved in an enormous accident just north of Indian Well State Park near Route 110 in Shelton, Connecticut.
Officials said the accident, which happened on December 13 and involved no deaths or serious injuries, was caused by poor weather conditions, reports the publication.
In 2008, there were approximately 5,811,000 police-reported motor vehicle traffic crashes across the country, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. When car shoppers hear the Beldens’ SUV kept them safe during their accident, used Jeep Libertys in New Jersey could become more popular.
When Fiat announced that it was buying a stake in Chrysler, automotive enthusiasts understood that some models of the ailing corporation would only be available in the future as used cars in New Jersey. But a new report indicates that a healthy percentage of the automaker’s product line will no longer be sold.
Chrysler sells cars under its own name, as well as Dodges and Jeeps. According to the Wall Street Journal, Italian automaker Fiat will be eliminating production of the Chrysler PT Cuiser and Sebring, as well as the Dodge Caliber, Nitro, Avenger and Grand Caravan. Also set to be taken off new car dealer showroom floors are the Jeep Commander, Compass and Patriot.
In their place, buyers will see Alfa Romeos and the Fiat 500, a subcompact that is popular in Europe according to the news provider. It notes that the new offerings will arrive in 2012, and Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne will need to keep the company afloat while the changes are made.
Buyers can add those models to the lists of vehicles only available by researching used cars in New Jersey, thanks to automakers’ cutbacks. Other cars that are no longer produced include Pontiac’s G-series and all Saturns.
Maintenance on most of the cars that celebrities drive can cost thousands of dollars for service that costs hundreds for non-luxury models. So its not surprising that seeing stars Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck get into an SUV could spawn sales of used Jeep Liberties in New York.
Seen in their un-trendy attire (Her: hoodie, jeans, sneakers; Him: tracksuit), a more affordable Jeep Liberty might make more sense for celebrities and the rest of the world when they’re not out looking to turn heads, compared to the cars that the paparazzi normally catch Affleck driving, like an Audi S8 or Mercedes-Benz S63.
New and used Jeep Liberties in New York could offer stars like Affleck the ability to go off-road with more facility than other compact SUVs, as its “a thoroughly capable and comfortable compact SUV if you like to bash boulders,” according to Edmunds.com.
A 2005 model may also be more attractive than previous models, according to the website, because of a re-designed interior that includes more comfortable seats and relocated switches.
Unless the family’s beloved pet fits into a seatbelt, driving with Fido or Fluffy can become a concern for motorists, unless they drive animal-friendly vehicles like used Jeep Liberties in New Jersey.
The compact SUV made a recent list compiled by researchers from Edmunds Automotive and pet safety advocates Bark Buckle Up, thanks to features like side-impact airbags and rear seats than can fold flat.
“Regardless of which vehicle you own, it is critical to safely restrain your pet when you’re driving,” asserted Christina Selter, Bark Buckle UP founder. “Even the calmest unrestrained pets can become frightened in a moving vehicle, distract the driver and cause an accident.”
The two groups say that roughly 80 percent of all pet dogs travel in vehicles at least once in their lifetime, but unrestrained animals weighing 60 pounds can have the same impact as a 2,700 pound object in a 35 mile-per-hour crash.
Buyers considering used Jeep Liberties in New Jersey may find more than pet safety features in the 2005 model: the SUV got an exterior update and buyers may be able to find one with a more efficient diesel engine, according to Cars.com.
Ciara’s Jeep Wrangler, which photographers recently found her driving, can be described in one word: black. Those considering used cars in New York may want to adopt the singer’s sleek style as their own, or at least her choice in transportation.
The open top is framed by gray roll-bars, and the interior is charcoal, but everything else is black, from the matte finish wheels up to the paint job.
Reports didn’t indicate the singer’s reason for choosing the affordable but sporty vehicle, but buyers may want to look at used Jeep Wranglers in New York for their versatility.
The 2003 model year included the introduction of the Rubicon trim line, which offered more off-road capability than the standard Wrangler and maintains the “classic, rugged styling” of a Jeep, according to a Detroit News test drive.
Like Ciara’s style, the Rubicon trim could also catch the eyes of passersby, with the reviewers finding pedestrians took note of the 31-inch wheels and the distinctive Inca gold paintjob.
While a used Jeep Wrangler in New Jersey could offer an inexpensive way for people to travel off-road, one woman in Utah has made an offer that she hopes one man can’t refuse.
A classified advertisement on NBC affiliate KSL is still open for any man that wants a free 1992 Jeep Wrangler with custom modifications for off-road travel like 33-inch wheels and an 8,000-pound winch, but there is one catch.
The woman, whose name is not listed on the posting, says that to get the Jeep, prospective owners also get the girl: She says that her sense of humor, enjoyment of automotive repair work and other traits make her a great fit for a man who chooses to marry her for at least five years to pick up the Jeep.
For those who may already be married, or not at the stage of their lives where they consider it an option, a used Jeep Wrangler in New Jersey could still be an inexpensive prospect.
Cars.com reviewer Jim Flammang writes that the ride of a 2003 model is much more forgiving than earlier models, saying the Jeep is “nimble, quick, precise and fun to drive.”
Drivers in a recent survey agree: a used Jeep Liberty in New York is one of the most satisfying vehicles in its segment.
The results from automotive industry research firm AutoPacific have found that for the past several years, the Jeep Liberty is an “ideal vehicle” for consumers based on their ratings of the car’s performance compared to expectations.
“Because of their positive experience, these consumers become promoters for our brands and in this difficult market, their endorsement is priceless,” said Doug Betts, Chrysler Group LLC senior vice president of quality.
For those who may be considering a used Jeep Liberty in New York based on the reports of their fellow motorists, a 2006 model could offer consumers a high-torque diesel engine that is helpful for the stop-and-go nature of U.S. motoring,” according to Cars.com reviewers.
They say that the increased fuel economy that averaged 26 miles per gallon in highway driving and engine longevity with the engines helped it to become a best seller when it was first offered. The torque also improves the towing ability of the midsize SUV.
A used Jeep Wrangler just might keep prospective buyers in style this summer, according to the editors of AutoWeek.
The car was named one of the 10 coolest summer cars this year, and they say it’s not just for the open-air ride offered by most models or the available four-wheel drive in some models.
“It doesn’t get any more all-American than a Jeep Wrangler,” said Dutch Mandel, AutoWeek editor and associate publisher, adding that with its off-roading ability, you can drive it anywhere and have a ball doing it.”
The Wrangler was the original sports utility vehicle, according to Mike Accavitti, Chrysler Director Brand Marketing, since it was adapted from the Jeeps used by Allied forces on World War II battlefields.
For those looking for a bargain in a used car, the 2005 model could offer one affordable choice to research.
It’s “fun to drive,” and has the same styling that has made it a common feature on roadways, according to Edmunds.com editors who also agree that it’s got “go anywhere capability.”
