If you need help deciding on whether a crossover or an SUV is for you, our team of Barrington, IL Wickstrom Dodge dealers can help you find your best match.

What Is a Crossover?

Crossovers are distinct from SUVs in the way they're constructed. They feature a unibody build, which means that both the frame and body are built as one piece. This type of construction is used in cars, which is why crossovers present a car-like feel with lower ride heights and agile performance quality. Crossover vehicles also offer more seating room than cars with two to three rows of seats, and they can take on more different types of terrain. That makes crossovers like the 2018 Jeep Compass ideal for daily commuting as well as the occasional adventure. If you'd like to explore this model, stop by our car dealership serving Arlington Heights, IL.

What Is an SUV?

SUVs feature a body-on-frame construction versus the unibody design. That means that like trucks such as the RAM 1500, SUV frames are built separately from the body. SUVs also tend to be larger and better equipped to tow and haul heavy loads, take on difficult terrain, and handle slippery weather. While SUVs like the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango are heavy hitters when it comes to utility and off-roading, they are also versatile enough to serve up pleasant daily driving.
