At Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Manitowoc, we cater to a wide variety of drivers. Of all the customers that enter our Dodge dealership in Wisconsin, off-road enthusiasts possibly expect the most out of their cars, and for good reason.

Off-roading is an exhilarating way to experience nature. When you take your vehicle off the pavement, you are able to get up close and personal with some of the most remote corners of the world. That said, we always recommend that you ensure your vehicle is up to the task, as the last thing you want is to find yourself stranded in the wilderness.

One thing to look for in an off-road vehicle is ground clearance. Ground clearance is the amount of space that separates the ground from the underside of your vehicle. There are a wide variety of vital components stored in your vehicle’s undercarriage, and damaging any of them can leave you stranded.

Tires share a similar level of importance, as they are tasked with finding traction on a wide variety of terrains, and they must be durable enough to withstand the beating that off-roading can impose. As a result, off-road tires are optimal, as they are designed with deeper tread in order to gain a better grip with the ground.

Lastly, the drivetrain of your vehicle can make a huge difference in your off-roading experience. Many off-road enthusiasts opt for a 4WD or AWD drivetrain, which provides power to all of the wheels individually. As a result, you can better navigate over complicated off-road problems.

If you’re looking for a vehicle to go exploring in, you’ll find plenty of off-road ready Jeep SUVs, Dodge models, and RAM trucks to choose from at Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Manitowoc. We pride ourselves on our vast collection of vehicles and will go the extra mile to help you find the perfect vehicle for you.
