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. The 2010 Toyota Highlander's appeal has grown even more massive with the addition of a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine for base models.
