The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a lot more than first appearances might suggest: a true luxury vehicle, a capable off-roader, and a fuel-efficient diesel highway hauler—potentially all in the same build. The 2016 Lexus GX offers off-road prowess that few buyers really need, but it is comfortable inside and on the road. The M-Class gets a new lease on luxury-crossover life as the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class—and it's joined by a swoopy new Coupe variant.
