What's the used Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 like?
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is excellent off-road. With a fine four-wheel drive system and good ground clearance, it will get you much further into the wilds than some of its competitors, such as the BMW X5, which focus on their on-road performance.
It's not too bad on the road, either, and the light power steering is a real help manoeuvring such a big car around town. However, compared with a Land Rover Discovery, its fidgety ride and lack of refinement are disappointing.
It's also something of a surprise to find that such a big car is quite so cramped. Some drivers will find the headroom tight - the lack of reach adjustment on the steering doesn't help - and room in the back is not as generous as in some.
There's also no seven-seat option, but at least the boot is a decent size and shape, albeit with an awkwardly high floor.
