The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee adds great turbodiesel fuel economy to a resume already blushing with talent. The 2014 Volkswagen Touareg is an expensive way to purchase a mainstream brand's vehicle, but it's more luxurious than many of its mainstream competitors.
