The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.7
6.2

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. The 2021 Nissan Murano’s windswept shape still looks good and safety is strong, but it’s showing its age.
