There are many options when it comes to choosing the right vehicle, and sometimes, pouring over these options can get overwhelming. With so many different types of features and amenities, one has to sort through a lot just to get to the right one that fits them. The most common difference between these vehicles is engine type, so we asked our manufacturer trained technicians at our Jeep® service center to quickly breakdown each engine type.


The V8 engine is often found in full-sized pickup trucks because of its pure towing power, often used for hauling equipment at a job or towing a trailer. The V8 is a big engine, and though it’s exhilarating to listen to one rumble, the immense power it boasts isn’t for everyone.


Most SUVs, like most Jeep models for sale, are powered by V6 engines, which is versatile enough to haul cargo and passengers alike, as well as provide enough fuel efficiency to avoid too many costly stops at the pump. It also provides enough horsepower to help push bigger vehicles through any terrain and road condition.


The four-cylinder is the most common type of engine, perfect for those looking for a great commuter car, where there is great fuel efficiency to be had, especially during long drives. It doesn’t boast much horsepower, but it’s capable enough to take anyone anywhere quickly.


Each engine has a unique set of capabilities. It’s up to you to figure out which one of those capabilities fit your lifestyle. The best way to figure that out is to sit down with our trained sales staff and test drive each one. So stop by our dealership located at 2406 Crain Highway and test drive a vehicle today.
