The 2013 model year is in full swing, and as always, there are some exciting new additions to the lineup of cars. Here’s a look at some of the new 2013 models from Chrysler and Jeep:

Chrysler 300:  With its bold lines and sleek styling, the Chrysler 300 has been a mainstay in the executive class,  and the 2013 year is cementing its position as a luxurious, feature-rich sedan.  The new model year bids farewell to cloth interiors – leather upholstery now comes standard, as do features such as heated front seats.  A whole host of luxurious new options are also available, elevating the 300 to new heights.  The car is sure to become a fast favorite among those who want the comfort and space of a roomy sedan complete with all the fixings.

Chrysler Town and Country: The Town and Country has always been Chrysler’s elegant approach to the minivan, and 2013 introduces even more finesse, combining the durability and comfort of a family vehicle with the elegance often reserved for high end sedans and luxury SUVs.   Features like stow and go seats, stain-resistant trim and ample cargo space, and you have the perfect vehicle for carpooling, weekend trips to the hardware store, and family vacations on the road.

2013 also hold great things in store for Jeep.  The rugged Wrangler is available in a variety of packages that blend the Wrangler’s off-road personality with some of the finer features associated with more laid-back vehicles.  Unlike many vehicles that are more about looking durable than actually delivering reliable performance in rough conditions, the 2013 Jeep Wrangler is well equipped to keep the adventure going.

Jeep Compass: For those who like the Jeep’s reputation for durability but don’t expect to take it off the road, the Jeep Compass provides an excellent solution.  With deft handling and a car-like ride, the compact SUV is available in FWD and AWD configurations.  A long list of incredible features, including the innovative fold-flat front passenger seat, make the Compass a welcome addition to anyone who wants comfort without sacrificing functionality.

Jeep Grand Cherokee: 2013 ushers in a host of new standard features in Jeep’s midsize SUV, the largest SUV in Jeep’s lineup.  The front park assist feature, power-folding mirrors, headlight wipers and the Overland Summit trim package are among the list of new standard items, making the Grand Cherokee an excellent choice for anyone who puts a premium on the availability of features.

Jeep Patriot:  The Compass and the Patriot share the same chassis and engine, but the Patriot focuses on the rugged aspects that many look for in a Jeep.  Standard features include a CD stereo with auxiliary jack, a 60/40 backseat, and an outside temperature gauge.  Those interested in taking their Patriot off the road and into the woods might be interested in the Freedom Drive II off-road package, which sports four wheel drive, 17-inch all-terrain tires, a full sized spare, and tow-hooks.

Whether you’re looking for a comfortable vehicle for a daily commute or something rugged for exploring rough terrain, Chrysler and Jeep’s 2013 lineup holds something for everyone.  If you’re interested in learning more, check out your local dealer for an up close look at some of the year’s most exciting models.
