2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
We love the latest Grand Cherokee, and so does the New England Motor Press Association, which has twice rewarded this tough SUV as the Ofﬁcial Winter Vehicle of New England. For 2014, a diesel engine and a new 8-speed automatic promise serious fuel efﬁciency, something we’ve never seen before on a big Jeep. Four-wheel-drive diesel models pack more than 400 pound-feet of torque and return an estimated 28-mpg highway, a huge boost over the V8 model’s 20 mpg. Restyled front and rear lights, a larger touchscreen infotainment system, and even more pampering—such as matte wood and a suede-like headliner—make all the German SUVs feel overpriced.
