Jeep Wrangler Evolution

Jeep Wrangler - a name that brings the idea of Automotive fun to mind. There are fun things about any vehicle, and if you we're to pick the fun features about a variety of vehicles you would come up with a Frankenstein car: The Jeep Wrangler. However instead of an unattractive combination of  features, you get THE JEEP WRANGLER! The Wrangler, simplified, is a BOX with Wheels. When taking a closer look the Jeep Wrangler has evolved over time from a Military Vehicle to a Civilian Off-Roader to a Family Vehicle with truly incredible 4x4 capabilities. The Wrangler originated as a two-door and tens of years later a 4 door model was released in 2007 and is called the Unlimited. There are a variety of packages or "trim levels" in which you can order the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited. These include the X which is a base model with Manual Windows Manual Locks and Likely a Soft Top. Moving up you have the Sport Package which can have similar features to the X but also has the option for some upgrades  such as power windows and locks and a hard top. One step higher than that would be the Sahara. The Sahara is the luxury version of the wrangler trim levels. You can get the Sahara with Leather, Heated Seats, Power Windows, Power Locks, Bluetooth, Hard Top with Retractable Roof Panel. And then there is the final trim level, Rubicon. The Rubicon trim is the most capable off road version of the wrangler. Instead of a leather or a power option upgrade the Rubicon gets actual mechanical upgrades. The Wrangler Rubicon gets locking front and rear differentials and better suspension along with the nice interior features. There is a trim level to suit every wrangler owner weather you're looking for a tough looking daily driver or an Off-Road Weekender vehicle. The Jeep is automotive versatility at its best and is equipped with options to bring a smile to any driver!

The New Age Not-So-Sedan

Welcome to Maryville Auto Sales' very first blog! Today's discussion revolves around the "New-Age Sedan". You may be wondering, "isn't the new age sedan, a sedan? Or maybe just a newer, more modern 4 door car?" To which I would say yes, but not entirely. If you think of the sedan as a 4 door car that you and your siblings grew up in you're probably right. But what a sedan offered in size and comfort, is now being "one-upped" buy the SUV and 4-door truck. Shoppers are finding that an SUV like the Honda CR-V or the Toyota Rav4 are better alternatives to the average sedan and offer more value. SUV's aren't the only body type out-pacing sedans; Crew Cab Trucks have more space than ever and are not only more spacious but are more versatile as well. In comparison, The SUV offers more ground clearance, more truck space, and more room for passengers. The 4-Door Truck also offers more to the consumer by its natural versatility. Take for instance our 2013 Toyota Tundra SR5 CREWMAX. This Two-Row truck seats three up-front and three in the back. Not only is there a sizable amount of space in this CrewMax Tundra, but the Rear Seats also RECLINE! It doesn't end there. Lets say for instance you and the wife are headed to home depot for a DIY weekend project. You have the car seats in the back a bed full of materials and you can pull a trailer if you need to, with ease. OH, and don't forget about how handy 4x4 is during the snowy winter months! If my example didn't paint the clearest picture, I'll clear things up. The SUV and Crew Cab Trucks are replacing sedans at a rapid rate because of the incredible value they offer. SUVs and Trucks are more safe and more comfortable than your idea of a Toyota Camry family car.
