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.
These models stand out for how much they disappoint.
The Wrangler sprouts a bed, creating a versatile off-road warrior.
The automaker will replace faulty passenger-side airbag inflators as part of a years-long rollout.
Truck and SUV owners should receive $2,800 on average.
