2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
I have had this 2010 GC Laredo 3.7L base model for almost 4 years. No fancy shmancy bells or whistles; the 2WD SUV is perfect for southern/rainy climates. It sits up high, steering is tight/responsive, super Mercedes W5A580 tried- and-tested transmission, and a window liftgate to carry long items. (Very few SUVs have that window liftgate feature.) In 4 years, I have had nothing but smooth, reliable performance. TIRES. Oh what a difference good tires make- recently replaced the stock Forteras with Michelin LTX M/S and it feels like a brand new car with
perfect handling. I am even happier with it now. Corners great, solid grip and confidence in major rain, and a ride smooth as glass.
Ride Height + Vehicle Balance, confident in rain
Great pricing with rebate when I bought it (last year model- $10k less than the newer Jeeps)
Super reliable (in my 4 years)
