The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L performs on road and off, has lots of space, and competes with luxury brands in its top models. An off-roader with controlled on-road manners, the 2021 Land Rover Defender is a roomier, more civilized alternative to a Jeep Wrangler.
