New turbodiesel
Unquestionable off-road ability
Two- or four-door body styles

Pros
Unrelentingly capable off-road
Rugged Jeep character
Extensive customization options from the factory and aftermarket

Cons
Steering is slow and feels loose, especially on the Rubicon trim
Lots of wind and tire noise at highway speeds
Less cargo space than some conventional crossovers

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is what the Jeep brand is all about—with roots that date back to the original World War II–era military vehicle—and its off-road capability borders on amazing. While it looks much like the first-generation Jeep that was created to support our troops, it has evolved into a one-of-kind four-wheel-drive vehicle, with tech and luxury to match its off-road chops. It offers everything from air conditioning to leather.

Pros
Throwback styling, heroic off-road capability, you can take off the doors and roof.

Cons
Tight cabin, lots of wind noise, trucklike compared with other SUVs.

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is unranked in Midsize SUVs due to missing safety data. Currently, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L's overall score is not available, though its Critics' Rating, Performance score, and Interior score are based on our evaluation of 8 pieces of research and data.

Pros
Impressive off-road ability
Cushioned ride
Well-crafted interior
Roomy, comfortable seats in all three rows

Cons
Some rivals are more agile

By:

The Grand Cherokee L is all-new for 2021.Three rows of seating.Interior filled with modern, premium touches and tech features.Kicks off the fifth Grand Cherokee generation for 2021.

Pros
Impressive list of standard and optional advanced driver aids
Unibody construction brings much-needed refinement
Handsome interior design
Better off-road capability than most SUVs

Cons
Base V6 engine provides underwhelming acceleration

By: 
edmunds.com

This year marks the beginning of a new generation of Grand Cherokee with the arrival of the three-row L model. It makes its debut before the updated two-row Grand Cherokee (reviewed separately), which will switch to this new design for 2022. A 4Xe plug-in hybrid model is likely coming for the 2022 model year.

Pros
Deluxe cabin environs,
plenty of off-road capability,
room for up to seven riders.

Cons
Base V-6 not as refined as optional V-8,
awkward proportions on smaller diameter wheels,
most desirable models are pricey.
