  • Athletic driving feel
  • Plush, sporty interior
  • Nimble handling for such a hefty vehicle
  • A Hybrid model that's good for the track
  • Plenty of room to customize


  • Not especially space-efficient
  • Tight second row, no third row
  • Base V-6 model barely worthy of the badge


  • Tasteful, upscale look
  • Spacious, refined cabin
  • Choice among all-wheel-drive systems
  • Advanced infotainment features
  • Oh, did we forget the SRT8 edition?


  • Not quite as crisp-looking as Jeeps past
  • Boomy exhaust from V-6
  • Needs Chrysler's new eight-speed automatic
  • No seven-seat version, yet
