The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a genuine dual-purpose SUV that can handle daily commutes almost as easily as sandstone trails. The 2008 Honda Pilot may not look cutting-edge, but it’s still one of the most family-friendly crossovers available.
