#4 - Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

The Jeep Grand Cherokee makes it into the final round of the search for the true off-roader.

by Steve

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE — Jeep has a long history of building what they consider the most capable SUVs on earth. At one point this was a true statement, but only by default because they were the only one with the Jeep Willies.

The Grand Cherokee is now in its third generation, with the evolution leaning more towards the road and less towards the hills. But it is still a very capable vehicle, with its sophisticated and advanced 4WD system, Quadratrac I, it can transfer power among the wheels with the most grip.
