2007 Chrysler Aspen Overview

Reviewers generally agree that the 2007 Chrysler Aspen is a fair entry in the affordable large SUV market, but in a class with more established and better performing competitors, the Aspen is an also-ran. New Car Test Drive says the Aspen "is a competent full-size SUV that offers the hauling and towing capability of a truck. In snapshot comparisons with the competition, the Expedition feels roomier, the Tahoe/Yukon rides and handles better, the Armada feels, and is, heavier, and the Sequoia feels better put together." Kelley Blue Book, taking a kinder stance, writes, "The segment for large sport utility vehicles, while shrinking, is still substantial, and Chrysler has, up to now, had no player in this market. The Durango-based Aspen is an elegant addition to the large SUV landscape, even if that landscape is eroding."

Compared to other SUVs in its class, the Aspen is highly affordable, though ownership costs can add up over time. MSN writes, "With a starting manufacturer's suggested retail price of more than $30,000, the Aspen has a lower starting price than competitors like the 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and 2007 Toyota Sequoia." And the Cars.com auto writer adds that "given its bargain price, comfortable interior and upscale styling, I think it's a compelling alternative to some of the more everyday models out there." However, IntelliChoice gives the 2007 Chrysler Aspen a value rating of "poor" for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership, compared to other vehicles in its class.
