It's been about five years since the Grand Cherokee was last redesigned, but thanks to its timeless appearance, it still looks more up-to-date than it is.
With respect to handling, safety, fuel economy, and nearly all other on-the-road pursuits, you could do better in a more modern car-based crossover vehicle.
The 4Runner is all-new for 2010 and has much improved refinement and a small third-row seat.
Neither offers the option of a high-performance model like the Grand Cherokee SRT8, but the Toyota and Nissan both sport a third row of seating that can come in handy.
If you want a Jeep model with third-row seating, you’ll have to spring for the Jeep Commander.
Even when ordered with four-wheel drive, these SUVs aren't designed for tough off-roading, even if the Pilot does look somewhat rugged, though both have a very spacious interior with three rows of seating.
