The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. If you’re after serious off-roading ability, the Pathfinder is more than capable—otherwise, there are comfier options available.
