Chrysler’s lineup of sport utility vehicles and crossovers consists of the Aspen and the Pacifica. All Chrysler SUVs and crossovers get a 3 year/36,000 mile basic warranty that includes towing assistance, a lifetime/unlimited mile non-transferrable powertrain warranty and a 3 year/unlimited mile rust warranty.

Aspen

Aspen was the first full-size SUV to wear the Chrysler wings. Introduced as a 2007 model, Aspen is available with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. All models arrive with a 4.7 liter V8 engine that sends 303 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque through a 5-speed automatic transmission. Base prices start at $35,580 and go to $41,960, plus options. The EPA estimates Aspen’s fuel economy at 14 mpg city/19 mpg highway with rear-wheel drive and 13 mpg city/18 mpg highway with four-wheel drive.
