As an American brand, Jeep sells motors to customers across the globe. It is recognised in the trade for selling larger cars, such as off-road and sport utility vehicles. Established since 1941, Jeep is another manufacturer whose response to the financial crisis has been to retrench and concentrate on its core money spinners. Therefore, you'll no longer find the Cherokee or the Patriot models being offered for sale in dealers, although they do make possibly the most interesting used buys in the range.
First manufactured to withstand the terrain of the Second World War, the versatility and powerfulness remains in the design to this day. However, these days, there’s a much more modern touch to the used Jeep cars.

The Jeep Patriot was the more squared-off version of the compact Compass model, and it was cheap when new but has held its value reasonably well. The interior is simple but it's surprisingly hard-wearing. What’s more, the Patriot has some impressive off-road chops.
The larger Jeep Cherokee is recognisable by its square rather than round headlights. Overtime, it has progressed from a full-size SUV to one of the first compact SUVs, and eventually into its current incarnation as a crossover SUV.
Awards that show the Jeep’s greatness
You know you can trust a used Jeep to be a reliable car with the number of awards the manufacturer has managed to pick up. In 2017, the Jeep Renegade took top spot in the 4x4 Magazine Awards and was crowned as '4x4 of the Year'. In the same awards, the Jeep Wrangler picked up an award in the ‘Hardcore’ class while the Jeep Cherokee claimed top spot in the ‘Top-Range SUV’ category. In fact, the Cherokee – with its class, power and thrill – is now one of the most-awarded SUV’s on the market.
