Reviews the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When the Jeep Grand Cherokee was redesigned last year, Chrysler managed to make the SUV a more refined daily driver while maintaining most of the old Grand Cherokee's rugged nature. The updates are probably a boon for traditional Grand Cherokee buyers, but it wasn’t a great fit for reviewer Kristin Varela or her family. The high step-up height and the somewhat snug interior made the Grand Cherokee not the best fit for large families, Varela says.

A Suburban would have better suited her needs.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a niche vehicle for a niche segment of the market, but it certainly isn't suitable for everyone.

For large families who require a low step in, a Toyota Sienna AWD would be much more appropriate.

I wonder why Ms Varela would even consider a Grand Cherokee to be a fit for a large family that requires a low ingress/egress.

Of all the things a Grand Cherokee may or may not be, it is not a good fit for more than four adults, nor is it a match for people of short stature, or kids, without some major additions.
