More aligned with buyer tastes?
Clean styling inside and out
High-tech dashboard
Lots of available safety tech

Cons
Will it be underpowered?
Awfully small for a three-row crossover
Third row required for FWD
Looks are too conservative for some

Whatever you're looking for in an SUV, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee likely offers it. Depending on how you equip it, it can be well-rounded and luxurious, an off-road specialist or a hot-rod SUV. It's one of our favorites in the midsize SUV class.

Pros
Plush interior with plentiful luxury and technology
Enough off-road ability to conquer practically any trail
Available V8 engines offer substantial power
Impressive tow ratings for the class

Cons
Limited cargo capacity compared to top rivals
Firm ride quality may disappoint, even with air suspension
