The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
For a truck-based SUV, the Ford is versatile and capable, with a great interior and a number of safety and entertainment features. For a smoother ride, consider a car-based SUV instead. Unless your routine involves off-roading or extremely difficult conditions, the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee only serves to show that modern crossover vehicles are better choices for most families.
