Iconic Jeep profile mixes Cherokee, Wagoneer, and Mercedes G-Wagen. With 330-hp Hemi, most powerful three-seat SUV; 5-speed auto. Rack-and-pinion steering precise, quiet ride, compliant suspension is capable off-road. “Cab forward” windshield creates spacious cockpit with intuitive controls.

Dislikes

Frightening gas mileage (11-13 mpg), third seat for children or contortionists. Maximum cargo space 68.9 cubic feet—only 1.5 more than Grand Cherokee and with high cargo floor. No luggage space behind third seat. Vertical windshield may have short life.
