The Top Gear car review:Jeep Grand Cherokee

Overall verdict
The best we have seen from Jeep for some time, the Grand Cherokee is now a proper executive SUV.


Great performance, excellent off-road


Interior trim could be better, pitches and rolls


What is it?

In an era where most SUVs have gone soft, the Grand Cherokee offers a beacon of hope for those who want their vehicles with backbone. The big Jeep retains the off-road ability that has become a hallmark of the brand, but adds a lot more refinement. Credible as a luxury car, the latest American offering boasts the best on-road manners that we have seen from the company – and an extensive a while back facelift has brought it even closer to the standard achieved by the German brand competition. Impressive stuff, Jeep.
