At Sansone Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM, we understand that some drivers look for a vehicle that is ready to take on more than just the open road. Some desire a vehicle that is fully equipped for off-road, adventurous driving. That said, there is a list of things you should be mindful of when picking the ultimate off-road-ready vessel.
There is a wide range of elements that makes a vehicle off-road ready. One of these many factors is the kind of tires you have tucked beneath your car. While you may find success using regular street tires for some light trail running, if you want the best performance, we recommend tires that are tempered for the trail. Highly durable and equipped with more robust tread depth, off-road tires can provide a much more fulfilling off-road experience.
If you’ve ever had a look at some of our Jeep SUVs near Woodbridge, NJ that are off-road ready, you may have noticed just how high they sit off the ground. This factor is known as ground clearance, and it can make a huge difference when traversing off the grid. Vehicles with a high ground clearance can better avoid the hazards and obstacles found on the trail, and it can protect some key components from being damaged on your run. Similarly, we recommend skid plates to help protect the undercarriage of your vehicle.
Possibly the most important factor in having a great off-road vehicle is the drivetrain your vehicle sports. Vehicles with either a 4×4 or AWD drivetrain send power to all four wheels, providing greater traction and greater capability when maneuvering in the great outdoors.
