Video: Ford Raptor v Jeep Gladiator v Land Rover Defender - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Off Road Vehicle

And while these three contenders are all guilty as charged, they go about their own respective business in very different ways.

Next-gen Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk supercharged V8 axed, though hybrid inline-six possible – report

A next-generation version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk super SUV has been axed, according to new reports – at least with supercharged V8 power under the bonnet.

2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk (4x4) review

NOTE: CarAdvice editorial photos used as none provided by the writer I needed something for the daily commute and to tow a small boat to the ramp on the weekends. I purchased the vehicle new and I loved it from the start. It's great to drive and goes well. The technology pack makes it treat to drive...

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...

2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Renegade (4x4) review

After using the CarAdvice rating system, I wonder why I love my Wrangler. I suppose the Wrangler is not a car. It has never pretended to be a car, and this makes it unique in a world of SUV’s. The reason I am a Wrangler owner who is willing to put up with everyone’s negative opinion is because it is an awesome off-roader, in where I can remove the roof, doors and even lower the windscreen to enjoy nature without having to walk...
