GC vs Prado

Hi all,

I am a newbie to this forum, so pardon me if someone has already asked this question of if this is not the correct place to ask

I currently own a 2007 Toyota Prado and am planning to upgrade. The the options I have is a newer Prado or the 2013/2014 Jeep GC. I never owned a Jeep and have heard from different owners and forums that they dont stand up to their name. I have heard that from time to time they have issues (which I suppose all cars have), below average off road performance, not many off roading kits and also dont have any good resale value.

What would be your thoughts on this ?

NOTE: I am in Australia and the is what I have heard here.

Thanks

Re: GC vs Prado

Welcome to JeepGarage!

Everything you heard is completely wrong. Jeeps are the BEST off-road and have a large aftermarket for off-road parts. They also have great resale value, at least here in the US.

Re: GC vs Prado

Welcome abs3401.

I suggest you pose your question in the Aussie thread linked below. Lots of guys that take the JGC off road in there and a great depth of knowledge with regards to its off-road perfomance.

2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Buy the JGC by the way.
