Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Strong on technology, it has offered Android Auto and Apple CarPlay since 2018. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily handle mud, snow, and sand. Jeep offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
