If you’re looking to purchase a Jeep Jeep Grand Wagoneer for under $14 million, you should probably get a Jeep Cherokee instead, a Fox News contributor said Tuesday.
The Jeep Grand Cherokees were designed for a more rugged look than their Jeep cousins and were originally designed to be the best-selling vehicle in the Jeep brand, but sales were down dramatically in recent years and sales have been steadily dropping since.
In a segment that has been dominated by the Jeep Cherokee, Fox contributor Todd Harris said there’s plenty of good reasons to look at a Jeep Wrangler for under half the price.
He said a Jeep for sale today would be better than the Jeep Wranglers you’re used to.
A Jeep Grand will sell for around $21,000, Harris said.
A lot of the time, the Wrangler will sell at the same price as a Jeep, he said.
Harris said if you’re buying a Jeep with a Jeep warranty, it could end up costing you hundreds of dollars.
He said if a Jeep owner buys a Wrangler with a warranty and gets a problem, the warranty might not be up to snuff.
“If you do a repair on a Wrangling, you could have the warranty claim denied, which means the vehicle is in default,” Harris said Tuesday on Fox Business.
“That’s a big problem because if you can’t get your warranty repaired, the vehicle can be in default and it’s basically a bad loan.”
Harris said a lot of people buy Wranglings as a high-end alternative to the Grand Cherokee, but the Wrangler is still going to have its advantages over a Grand Cherokee.
“The Wrangler has more engine options and it has more horsepower, but it’s got more options,” Harris told Fox.
“So, a Jeep is better for people who are looking for a budget Jeep.
It’s a Jeep in a Jeep.”
