Trucks and SUVs Perfect for Summer Excursions


Thinking about taking the family on a summer camping trip to Yellowstone or Yosemite? Your experience will be enhanced with the right truck or SUV, and our RAM dealers serving Northfield, IL will help you find it.

For smaller tow loads, the 2019 Jeep® Cherokee is a great pick. Believe it or not, this midsize SUV’s standard towing capacity is a robust 2,000 lb, a number that can be increased to 4,500 lb with the right equipment. Not only does every Jeep Cherokee near Chicago, IL boast style, comfort, and premium features in spades, but it’s also tough enough to take into the wild.

Another vehicle that has what it takes to tow your family’s camping gear isn’t an SUV or a truck: it’s the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica minivan, winner of numerous awards for its innovations, styling, and refinement. It’s easy to overlook the fact that when equipped with the Trailer Tow Group, this next-gen minivan boasts a towing capacity of 3,600 lb. The Trailer Tow Group consists of several components, including a 7- and 4-pin trailer tow wiring harness, a heavy-duty radiator, and a hitch with a 2-inch receiver.

Of course, if you want the ultimate in towing capacity amongst the FCA US LLC family, you should consider the 2018 RAM 1500. Acknowledged by numerous experts as the auto industry’s best full-size truck, the 2018 RAM 1500 model’s max towing capacity ranges from 7,600 lb with the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine to an exceptional 10,620 lb with the 5.7-liter V8 HEMI® power plant. Pair these stats with two class-exclusive suspensions, class-leading ride comfort, and 13 different trims to choose from, and it’s easy to see why the 2018 RAM 1500 is an outdoorsman’s dream.

All of these vehicles (and many more) are available for test driving at our local Chrysler dealership today!
