How Will You Use Your New Vehicle?

This is the most important question you will have to answer when choosing the right car for yourself. All other questions are just different variations of this.

Will this be your personal car, or will it be the family car? Personal cars can be compact, but family vehicles will need to be mid- to full-sized. 

Do you need this vehicle to carry lots of people, or lots of cargo? With passengers, you should prioritize headroom and legroom, but for cargo you want folding rear seats, a roof rack, or even a truck bed.

Is this car going to be for your commute, or is it just a fun weekend car? Your primary car should have good fuel economy and a smooth ride. If this is your weekend car, determine whether you want it to go fast, or to go off road.

Pick a Body Style

Our Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram dealership sells SUVs of all sizes alongside coupes, sedans, pickup trucks, and passenger and cargo vans.

The Ram 1500 pickup truck is by far the most popular model sold at our dealership serving the Ozark, MO area, since it's available in both three and six seat body styles. The subcompact Jeep Renegade is a popular choice for commuters, while the mid-sized Dodge Journey is a good choice for small families. Large families will prefer either the three-row Chrysler Pacifica or Dodge Grand Caravan.

Premium or Economy?

Are you just looking for a vehicle to get you around, or do you want heated leather seats, interior wood trim, and all the best creature comforts?

The Jeep Patriot is the most affordable SUV in America, and the Dodge Charger provides sports car power at a sedan price. Meanwhile, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 can be equipped like a luxury model in top trims.

Fuel Economy or Horsepower?

If your priority is fuel economy, look to the compact crossovers in the Jeep lineup, which get as much as 30 MPG or more. Our dealership is also proud to carry the new Chrysler Pacifica, the industry's only plug-in hybrid minivan.

If your priority is horsepower, consider a Dodge muscle car or brawny Jeep Grand Cherokee. Even the base model Charger engine gets 300 horsepower, while other engine options offer 370 HP, 485 HP, all the way up to 707 HP! Meanwhile, the 2018 Grand Cherokee comes with 295 HP, 360 HP, 475 HP, and 707 HP engines.

What Technology Do You Want?

Choosing your car doesn't only involve digging into the specs. It also means making sure you'll be happy driving it. Small conveniences like a backup camera can drastically improve your ownership experience.

Other features you might enjoy include the flip-down tailgate speakers found in the Jeep Patriot, the Uconnect Theater rear entertainment system with built-in games found in the Chrysler Pacifica, and built-in second row child booster seats in the Dodge Journey.
