It’s been a tough time for us all over the last few months and it does look like we’re entering a period of uncertainty over the months and years ahead as the economy and society recovers from the damages caused by the Coronavirus. Jeep, however, has introduced an exceptional new offer scheme which can be applied to a number of their models.
It is called the job loss protection scheme and it is exclusively for customers buying Jeep vehicles using the Jeep Horizon PCP financing. The scheme allows up to 7 months of payments to be waived from the contract if you are unable to meet the payments due to becoming involuntarily unemployed or becoming unable to work due to sickness or accident (providing specific requirements are met.) Job loss protection can be activated at any time within the first 12 months of the agreement.
At a time where people will understandably be reluctant to enter long-term finance deals due to the uncertainty around employment, this empathetic gesture from Jeep is nothing short of excellent.
So, what can you get?
The Job Loss Protection scheme is available when buying a brand new Jeep Renegade via Jeep Horizon PCP before the 31th of August. You can get a brand new Renegade right now for just £199 per month on a 2 year deal with 0% APR. Jeep will contribute a massive £3,000 to the deposit that you put down.
The Renegade is a B-segment SUV which rivals the likes of the Peugeot 2008, Seat Arona and Renault Captur. It’s unique and characterful aesthetic makes the Renegade instantly recognisable as a Jeep, even though it’s one of the smaller SUVs that they have produced in recent years.
Another Jeep vehicle available with the Job Loss Protection scheme is the new Compass SUV. The Compass sits above the Renegade in terms of size and price. While the Renegade is better purposed for suburban and inner-city driving, the Compass is a more commanding vehicle which is built to take the stress out of longer journeys.
Jeep will contribute £3,000 to the deposit on a brand new Jeep when bought via their Horizons PCP. This means that you can get the compass for as little as £299 per month, with 0% APR and a £6,082 deposit, which qualifies you for the Job Less Protection Scheme.
It is also worth noting at this point that Jeep currently offer a comprehensive 5-year manufacturer warranty with all new models. So, just in case something does go wrong within the term of the finance deal, Jeep will be there to look after you.
Lastly, Jeep is also running a new offer on their Wrangler model. Like the Renegade and the Compass, the offer has 0% APR and prices start from £449 a month with Jeep contributing a massive £2,000 to the deposit. It’s worth noting that the Wrangler is more of a specialized tool than a generic modern SUV, hence why it demands an ‘on the road’ price tag in excess of £40,000.
If you’re looking for a new SUV for your family then these 0% APR deals won’t last forever, and neither will the Job Loss Protection offers which are currently due to expire at the end of June.
