The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.7
7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a benchmark SUV; it's a luxury vehicle, a talented off-roader, a scalding-hot track runner, and a family wagon extraordinaire. The 2017 Kia Sorento stays true to its high-value roots, but it's grown up in refinement and comfort.
