DCJR Myths Busted

Two Jeep Wranglers on Trail

Here at Olathe Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, we see a lot of customers in Overland Park and the surrounding areas make some mixups about the new Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram lineup. With so many different models to choose from, and numerous vehicles based on similar platforms under different brand names, it’s completely understandable. That’s why we’ve created this helpful guide to clear up any confusion. Get the scoop here, and then stop into your certified DCJR dealership, conveniently located near Gardner, to find out more!

Jeep 4Runner

Jeep is known for developing some of the most capable off-road vehicles in production, but there are other robust SUVs in the CDJR lineup. There’s not a Jeep 4Runner, but there is a Toyota 4Runner, and it’s a capable body-on-frame SUV with a variety of off-road features.

However, Springhill drivers looking for a Jeep 4Runner are most likely looking for a Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler features a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, Uconnect® 4C, and plenty of different 4×4 systems from which to choose. While the Toyota 4Runner offers some impressive performance specs, it’s simply no match to the Jeep Wrangler. Remember not to confuse the one-of-a-kind Jeep Wrangler for another vehicle!

Jeep Durango

Another capable, off-road ready, truck-based SUV that gets confused with the Jeep brand is the Dodge Durango. Like the Toyota 4Runner, the Durango is offered with 4WD and low-range gearing, but you’ll also get some other perks, including:

  • Max 8,700 pounds towing capacity
  • Seating for up to 7 passengers
  • Available 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system

Dodge Compass

While Jeep is famous for SUVs like the unrivaled Jeep Wrangler, it also sells more affordable and smaller crossover options, including the Jeep Compass. The Jeep Compass is able to get up to 32 mpg highway, but it is still offered with best-in-class 4×4 capabilities, complete with features like:

  • Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System
  • Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 System

Dodge Pacifica

The Dodge Grand Caravan remains a popular minivan choice, but for those looking for the Chrysler minivan name, it’s named the Chrysler Pacifica. Both the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica feature a 283-hp Pentastar® V6 engine, a max towing capacity of 3,600 pounds, and a Uconnect® infotainment system. However, there are some differences to consider between the two when it comes to design, luxury features, and performance.
