The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee adds great turbodiesel fuel economy to a resume already blushing with talent. The 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser pairs tough trail-ready hardware with modern features and fab styling--but it's not for families or commuters.
