As if the stylish new design and numerous innovative technologies weren’t enough to entice you to buy the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it was just named the winner of the Cars.com/USA Today Midsize SUV Challenge.
“After extensive testing, the Jeep Grand Cherokee took the top spot in the Cars.com/USA Today Midsize SUV Challenge, thanks to its luxurious interior, impressive multimedia system and overall driving capability,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s Editor-in-Chief. “Jeep Grand Cherokee has long been considered a true, off-roading SUV, and thanks to some serious refinement, today’s incarnation of the Grand Cherokee edges out the other, very worthy, midsize SUV options available to shoppers.”
After first setting a price cap of $38,000, the testers also said the cars had to have automatic transmission and either naturally aspirated V6 or turbocharged four-cylinder engines. That narrowed the field down to six competitors. From there, the judges spent one day driving the SUVs, another day driving them back-to-back, and finally a third day with family in the cars.
At the end, it was the 2014 Grand Cherokee that claimed the title. The judges liked that the new Grand Cherokee featured rear-wheel drive, the UConnect multimedia system, 12-month satellite radio subscription, USB ports, leather seats, heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, power liftgate, rear parking sensors, configurable gauge cluster, and an IIHS Top Safety Pick award to its credit.
