The SUV You Want at a Price You Can Afford

If you’ve had your eye on the new Jeeps, you may have noticed the 2018 Jeep Compass. The Compass is one of Jeep’s midsize SUV’s, slightly smaller than the Cherokee and a bit larger than the Renegade. The price falls mid-range, making it one of Jeep’s more affordable SUVs.

The interior and exterior of the new Compass are sleek and stylish allowing you to blend in both on and off the road. With 6-way adjustable seating, a heated steering wheel and seats, automatic start, and under seat HVAC ducts, you can be sure you will ride in comfort. One of my favorite features is the dual-zone front air conditioning, allowing the driver to choose the temperature that is comfortable for them while the passenger chooses their own temperature.


When it comes to the mechanical options there are many choices. Whether you prefer an automatic transmission or a manual transmission, the choice is up to you. You can choose from a 6-speed manual transmission, or a 6- or 9-speed automatic transmission. The Compass also comes with front and rear anti-roll bars to ensure your safety while you are out playing and four skid plates to protect your car as well. All four wheels have disc brakes with ABS and trailer sway control is included to make towing easier.

There are six speakers to help all members of the family hear clearly without anyone feeling like it is too loud. Uconnect also allows for Bluetooth connectivity with your smart phones or other devices as well as wireless streaming.

Why You Should Consider an SUV


In recent years, one of the biggest trends in car shopping has been to downsize. Many people are considering smaller vehicles to help with the increasing cost of fuel. This doesn’t mean downsizing is for everyone, however. In fact, there are still many reasons why you should consider buying an SUV.




Safety is on the mind of most shoppers when it comes to getting a new car. At Bob Bannerman, we’re also concerned with the safety of our customers. The truth is that when you’re looking for one of the safest cars on the market, you don’t have to look much further than the nearest SUV.


Gas Mileage


Several years ago, SUVs were renowned for poor gas mileage. However, within the last few years, this has changed dramatically. Now, many of the newer models get great gas mileage. You don’t have to sacrifice money at the pump to have a larger vehicle.


Towing Capabilities


If you can see yourself towing or carrying large amounts of cargo, then an SUV like the 2016 Dodge Durango may be right for you. Whether you travel often or have recreational vehicles to tow, an SUV can help you out immensely.




If you’ve ever traveled with pets in a small vehicle, you know how much of a pain it can be. No one wants to have to leave their pets at home, but with a smaller car, you may have to. An SUV offers plenty of room for all of your pets.


Higher Seating


When you’re in an SUV, you’re seated higher than most cars. This can usually help you to see over traffic and to see any problems that may come your way in advance. In fact, having a higher seat can also help you navigate parking lots a lot better.


Although many people have pushed towards smaller vehicles, this isn’t the right choice for everyone. SUVs still have an important place when it comes to getting around.

The 2017 Pacifica Is a Great Family Vehicle

Great Looks

With an upgrade, you get twenty-inch wheels, sunroofs, and an unbelievable sound system. These features give the vehicle a high-end look, helping to destroy the stigma of driving a mini-van.


Unparalleled Comfort


With available seven-person seating, the 2017 Pacifica has a space for everyone in even large families. Inside, you will find the modern-day luxurious you might expect in only a luxury vehicle. Mini-vans are made for long trips. If you decide to take on in the Pacifica, don’t be surprised if you feel more comfortable in this vehicle than in any other.


Excellent Performance


With a 3.6 liter V6 engine, the 2017 Pacifica delivers 287 horsepower. If you are looking for acceleration and performance, those engine stats guarantee you will be impressed. If you think that kind of power means you will have to give up fuel economy, you would be wrong. The Pacifica hits 22 mpg, which is roughly standard for mini-vans.


Adequate Safety


The 2017 Pacifica has the sort of safety features you would expect from a family vehicle. Anti-lock brakes, airbags, and a rearview camera come standard on the vehicle. Even better, for a subscription, you can access the emergency services built into the Pacifica’s Uconnect system.

3 Options to Consider When Buying the 2017 Ram 1500

When you are buying a new vehicle, you have to make a lot of decisions. Before you can get to the actual purchase, though, you have to decide on what features you want. For the 2017 Ram 1500, you get a few different options that you need to think about. The choices you make will help to create the truck that you really want. Here is a look at three options you should consider when making your final decisions.


  1. Engine


The engine is going to be your biggest choice to make. Ram is known for provided amazing power, so no matter what you choose, it’ll be a good choice. However, you should at least be aware of the options you have. The standard equipment is the V6. It’s strong and efficient. However, you also have the V8 to consider, which boosts towing power, or the turbocharged diesel V6, which is surprisingly efficient when compared to others in this class.


  1. Packages


Depending on how you plan to use your truck, you want to think hard on which package you want. The minimum choice is the Tradesman. The next step up would be the Limited, which offers top of the line features. Lastly, you have the Rebel, which gives you excellent off road capabilities.


  1. Configurations


Finally, you need to think about what you want when it comes to doors, cab and bed lengths. You have the option of a regular cab with two doors, a full-length four-door crew cab or an extended quad cab with four doors. Do note that the four door options all allow for independent door opening so you don’t have to open the front doors to access the back. Lastly, you have three options in bed lengths starting at the biggest with eight feet, then six feet four inches and finally five feet and seven inches.


Make sure once you come to Bob Bannerman that you have a good idea of the different options you want. This will help things move along more quickly and get you out the door with your Ram 1500 faster.
