Are you thinking about buying a Jeep® Wrangler in Glenview? Perhaps, you hear the terms crossover and SUV and ask, what is a crossover? What is an SUV? While they may appear the same, there are key differences. Today, our Jeep dealer breaks down the difference between a crossover and an SUV to help you make the best choice for your lifestyle.

Crossover vs SUV: It's in the Body

SUVs, or Sport Utility Vehicles, are built on the chassis of a truck - body on frame. SUVs like the Dodge Durango and Jeep Wrangler are born out of a need for functionality. People wanted the rugged capability of a truck with the in-cabin cargo space of a van. Many SUVs are off-road capable and, when properly equipped, have a considerable towing capacity.

Crossover vehicles, sometimes called CUVs, on the other hand, are built on a car chassis - a unibody design. A crossover definitely looks like an SUV but may offer lower capacities in terms of towing. Given the construction of a crossover, these vehicles are more likely to handle like a sedan and may offer a smoother, tighter ride than a full-size SUV.
