2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (4x4) review

The Jeep Grand Cherokee. So far it has been a wonderful car. Yes it has its faults, which I will cover later in this review. Firstly, we wanted a vehicle to tow a caravan that was just under two tonne, with a ball weight of about 180kg. Without being a full-on 4WD, we wanted something that also needed to drive "car like...

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (4x4) review

I, being a long term Toyota driver, had everyone shocked when I switched to a Jeep. I must admit, I was a biased Prado driver and had been for many years. My wife was obsessed with Jeep Grand Cherokees ever since their mid-2013 facelift, and every time we passed one she'd shout 'Jeep!'. I always thought they were nice enough cars but had heard too many horror stories to justify the switch from Toyota to Jeep...

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (4x4) review

Well, who would have thought this? I wanted to get out of my 5 year old Navara ST-X work vehicle and into an SUV. I canvassed all the brands, including the Toyota Prado Kakadu and decided on a Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. The standard motor is the Italian Motori 3.0-litre turbo V6 (same as the Maserati Levante) mated to an 8-speed ZF transmission...
