Would a Crossover or SUV Suit You Better?

If you are ready to finally trade-in the car that was given to you by your parents, and you want an SUV you may be feeling a little confused on which SUV you want to buy or lease. There are dozens of makes and models available and to see them all you would need to spend a ton of time driving around from dealership to dealership, unless you go to Miami Lakes Automall.

Miami Lakes Automall is one of the few dealerships in South Florida that has seven brands located in one location. We have vehicles made by Chevy, Mitsubishi, Kia, Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge and Ram, and each brand (except Ram and Chrysler) manufactures SUVs and crossovers.

Crossovers

Crossovers are one of the newest, fastest growing and most popular segments in the auto industry. Crossovers are versatile vehicles that offer space for passengers and cargo, but they are more fuel efficient and give drivers a little more control in comparison to a big vehicle like an SUV or truck.

Chevy manufactures two crossovers, the Chevy Equinox and the Chevy Trax. The Equinox was redesigned for the 2018 model year and it is available with a couple different engine options, including the new available diesel engine that gives the Equinox a highway fuel economy of 41 MPG.

The Fiat Chrysler Automobile umbrella includes four crossovers, three made by Jeep and one made by Dodge. The three available Jeep crossovers include the fun-to-drive Cherokee and modern new Compass and Renegade, and each of those models is available as a Trailhawk trim, which is a trim specifically designed for going off-road.

If warranty is an important feature to you, the crossovers made by Mitsubishi and Kia should definitely be on your list. Both Kia and Mitsubishi offer an industry-leading powertrain warranty  of 100,000 miles or 10 years. Mitsubishi’s crossover is the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and Kia makes two crossovers, the Kia Niro and the Kia Sorento. The Kia Niro is a new hybrid crossover that’s stylish and fuel efficient, and later this year, a plug-in hybrid electric version will be available.

SUVs

If you are in need of a vehicle that can fit 5-7 people, is available with four-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive and has some towing power, an SUV may be the best option and Miami Lakes Automall has a large selection of SUVs.

Two of the largest SUVs on the market are made by Chevy and they are the Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban. Both models offer seating for up to nine passengers, more than 90 cubic feet of cargo space and a towing capacity of more than 6,600 pounds. If you want to stick with Chevy, but don’t need an SUV quite as large as the Tahoe or Suburban, there is also the available Chevy Traverse and Chevy Equinox.

Jeep is dedicated to SUVs and crossovers, and the full-size Jeep Grand Cherokee is the most awarded SUV on the market. This year the Grand Cherokee is celebrating its 25th anniversary and it is available in a number of different trims including the off-road trim, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, the luxury trim, the Grand Cherokee Summit, or the all-new 707-horsepower Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which is the most powerful and quickest SUV ever.

Dodge only offers one SUV, the Dodge Durango, but it’s available with so many options that one SUV is all Dodge needs to offer. The Dodge Durango is available with two or three rows of seats and three different engine options. The available 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine gives the Durango a maximum towing capacity of 7,400 pounds, and the new 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine boosts the Durango’s maximum towing capacity up to a best-in-class 8,700 pounds.
