Few car manufacturers have come through the wringer quite like Jeep. If their products have a reputation for a certain durability, so too does the brand. Throughout Jeep's troubled years, there was one reassuring constant. The Grand Cherokee, its flagship model, just continued to get better and better. There was a big step forward in 2005 but it wasn't until 2011 that we saw another update to the line in the form of the car we look at here.
Where Grand Cherokees were once a very voguish buy, they're not viewed in the same way any longer. Perhaps it's the multitude of choice out there. Or maybe it's the fact that the market has cooled to something seen as so typically gung-ho American. Whatever the reason, despite becoming genuinely class competitive, UK buyers have increasingly thumbed their noses at the Grand Cherokee. While that's hardly great news for Jeep, it's music to the ears of used buyers who are looking to track down a bargain.
