"Outfit a Grand Cherokee Overland with the V8 motor and Quadra-Drive II, and you’ll wind up with a vehicle costing well over $50,000 and close to the $60K-ish price-tag of the Land Rover LR4, which is one of the Jeep’s closest competitors..."
* 10k is a lot of money..most writers I know can't throw around 10K...
* I test drove the Audi Q7, LR4, Range Supersport, BMW, ML...all of them.
The only car that made me even consider upgrading was the Range
Rover Supersport...that thing is a gem, but also $100K. The others
offer 'marginal' (by my definition, marginal can also mean subjective)
upgrades at substantial premiums. Congrats to these brands for
earning the right to charge more, but from my hands on review the
GC Overland is a statement vehicle.
* I'm starting to get tired of these writers trying to make a niche perhaps
among their peers by thinking they are writing something 'different' or
perhaps in their (writer) mind, finding an angle. People are too smart
these days, and trust their own instincts more than some writer.
Just my opinion...and it's great that we can choose what is a great car by voting with our wallets...Jeep's latest numbers don't lie.
