During the car-buying process, it’s important that you get the features you’re looking for in a new vehicle. Sometimes, though, it can be difficult to decipher what each models’ trim levels mean. Here is a quick overview of trim level basics to help make the car-buying process a bit easier.
What is a trim level?
A trim level is the nomenclature used to identify a model with a particular set of features. Trim levels that are higher in the model lineup will have more features than that of the entry-level or base model. An example of this nomenclature can be seen on the Dodge Grand Caravan, which has three trim levels: the base SE, the mid-range SE Plus, and the premium SXT.
While it might seem difficult to keep track of trim information, carmakers tend to apply a consistent set of hierarchy to their models’ trim levels. For example, in Dodge, every SE will be considered the base model.
Which trim level should you buy?
With the vast array of trim options available to you, it can sometimes be difficult to determine which one you should buy. There are two things you should consider, though, when making your decision: your “must have” list and your budget.
If you’re looking at a particular model, you first need to think about what you want in regard to comfort and performance. Then, find the right trim level that fits your budget and offers the majority of the features you want.
