Which used Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 should I buy?

For now, the Grand Cherokee is a rare sight as a used car, and you're unlikely to see one for sale outside a Jeep dealership.

There are three engines, and none is short of performance. There are two V8 petrols: the 5.7 makes the Grand Cherokee as fast as almost any hot hatch and the SRT-8, with a 6.1-litre engine, can hit 60mph almost as quickly as an Aston Martin DB9.

Our favourite, though, is the V6 turbodiesel. Not only is it far more economical than the V8 petrols - almost 10mpg better than even the 5.7 - it's also got impressive pull low down in the rev range, which is just what you want in an off-roader.

You'll have no worries in terms of kit - every model is well equipped, although only the diesel has any choice of trim level. The petrol cars each have their own unique specification.
