TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee adds great turbodiesel fuel economy to a resume already blushing with talent. Few vehicles can boast the 2014 Lexus GX 460's on- and off-road capabilities--but how many luxury car owners go rock-crawling? The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL may be an expensive way to haul the family around, but it has excellent driving manners and some very sophisticated safety technology, too.
