The Car Connection's Take

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee adds great turbodiesel fuel economy to a resume already blushing with talent. Above all else, the 2014 Subaru Outback remains an eminently practical and capable vehicle, with generous interior space both for people and their gear.
