Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

Mercedes Benz ML 350 or 63 AMG
Mercedes Benz S 550 or 63 AMG
Mercedes Benz SL 550 or 63 AMG
Land Rover Range Rover
Lexus GS 350 F Sport
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

These are my choices not in exact order but I would go with a Mercedes Benz first over any of the listed above. I am planning on getting the ML 350 when the lease on my 2014 Grand Cherokee is up.

Ditto.

IMHO, there are FEW vehicles that can match or even come close to the features of the WK2. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a capable, feature rich SUV that can handle On Road along with Off Road tasks with easy.

Most other SUVs can do one OR the other (On Road/Off Road). Few can do both well.

In fact the only others I can think of are the 2014 Range Rover Sport & the Porsche Cayenne Turbo/Turbo S.






If I HAD to pick a vehicle other then a WK2, it would be one of those!

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

I would get a 2014 Jeep Cherokee. It has the same features as my Grand Cherokee while having better fuel mileage and the 4500 lbs towing capacity that I need. Its probably what I would have bought had it been available at the time I bought my 2014 Grand Cherokee.

Don't get me wrong, I love my Grand Cherokee. Its just sometimes I wish I had a bit smaller, more nimble, vehicle... but then I need to tow something or haul something or drive in a bad snow storm and I remember why I bought such a capable SUV...

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

Seems this thread became more like what your dream or unpractical car you would get. I think the point was what car would you have if not the JGC. For example i would have a prius.

Yea that will be the day!!!! For me it would be a different luxury suv in same price range. (You know which ones)

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

Huh, I actually dreamed about the JGC for quite some time (yeah, that was my dream car!). Unfortunately, I was surprised to find that it just wasn't that big. So I went with the Durango. It's 10" longer, but it's basically the same thing. The look of the RT has really grown on me too!

Acura RDX. It was our second choice to the Jeep. Audis SUVs are nice as well. But we are totally satisfied with our 2014 GC (which replaced our 1997 GC) so the question is moot.
