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. Though it's far from cheap, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz M-Class earns our kudos with hip styling riffs, shock-and-awe AMG power, and your choice of earth-saving powertrains.
