The Jeep brand embodies the essence of rugged, go-anywhere vehicles. Jeeps have a long history of customer loyalty despite lagging in reliability, fuel economy, comfort, and interior fit and finish. Nowhere has that been truer than with the rough-rider Wrangler, an iconic workhorse loved by its owners. The latest Wrangler (JL) touts many improvements over the previous model, and a pickup truck version should broaden the model’s appeal. The Grand Cherokee is, by far, the Jeep with the highest road test score. Recent updates to the Compass, Cherokee, and Renegade are not enough to push those SUVs to the head of their classes. Reliability is a concern across the brand.
This is the pickup truck for Jeep purists and off-road enthusiasts.
Owners to get up to $3,075, software fix, and extended warranty.
These small SUVs are similar in size and capabilities, but one is the clear choice.
Repairs will happen in phases because of lack of parts.
