Letter to the Editor: Critical of township's new vehicle choice

February 27, 2013 - With regard to the township's decision to purchase a new vehicle – Geez, a 2013 4x4 Grand Cherokee Laredo!

The Laredo has a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $29,695 and its fuel economy is 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 gallons per mile on the highway.

Terrible choice! A 2013 4x2 Jeep Patroit with an MSRP of $15,995 would be the proper choice for a municipal vehicle. It gets 30 miles to the gallon on the highway.

I personally would go for the better warranty/lower operating cost of the 2013 Equinox with an MRSP of $24,155. It gets 32 miles to the gallon on the highway.
