Jeep Car Leasing
Why Lease A Jeep?
Jeep has a long and enviable history of making hugely capable all-terrain vehicles, which it still produces today. It also makes cars designed to deal with more everyday duties – making Jeep a great option for leasing.
Originating as a trademark applied to the US Army’s World War II off-roader, the Jeep brand is arguably more rooted in SUV know-how than any other carmaker in history. It became its own manufacturer following the war and has gradually evolved to offer mainstream models like the Jeep Renegade and Compass, as well as the longstanding Wrangler and Grand Cherokee that have solidified its reputation. The original Jeep’s iconic grille and round headlights remain a design quirk.
More recently, it’s also embracing electrified powertrains, too, with its 4xe plug-in hybrid variants. In 2021, Jeep became part of the enormous European-American automotive conglomerate Stellantis, which also houses well-known manufacturers like Peugeot, Citroen and Vauxhall.
The Jeep Range
Today’s line-up is a relatively small one compared to other manufacturers. It currently offers 4 cars, of which the smallest is the Jeep Renegade. It might be a compact SUV but it’s still very capable despite being only available with front-wheel drive, with plenty of rugged off-road styling, a choice of petrol engines and a plug-in hybrid. The latter can run on electric power only for up to 26 miles, and the battery can be recharged by plugging it into the mains. Alternatives include the MINI Countryman and Audi Q2.
Next in the range is the Jeep Compass, which has less in-your-face styling but still maintains a sleek design. It’s a larger SUV than the Renegade, and looks-wise is similar to the Grand Cherokee above it. Equipment levels are also impressive.
Perhaps the most recognisable model is the Jeep Wrangler. This is a pure off-roader with the most rugged look and incredible ability away from the tarmac. There’s not much else on the market that can go where the Wrangler can go – it’s up there with the best, reflected in its design consistency since production began in 1986. While the Wrangler feels more traditional than other Jeeps in some ways, a 4xe plug-in hybrid model is available, opening up Jeep leasing to a wider audience. While off-roading rivals include the comprehensive Land Rover Defender, few – if any – can match the Wrangler’s unique, purposeful looks.
At the top of the range is the Grand Cherokee, another of Jeep’s vehicles to enjoy a decades-long production run. The latest iteration, however, is moving firmly with the times – the Grand Cherokee is also available as a 4xe plug-in hybrid with all-wheel drive and 380hp. Those looking for car leasing with equal focus on performance, practicality and eco-friendliness need look no further.
