What are some SUVs comparable to the Jeep Grand Cherokee but more affordable?
I have wanted to buy a used Grand Cherokee for a few years now but they’re a bit out of my price range. What are some vehicles that compare in size, shape, and function, but are a bit cheaper in purchase price and hopefully also in gas mileage? Anyone want to brag about your beloved SUV and what makes that model ideal?
I want one for: covered cargo space, passenger seating, and snow capability. I’d like 4wd, and something that’s better on fuel than Jeeps supposedly are. Durability, of course, is a big plus; this is a vehicle I’ll keep for a long time. I want something that sits up higher than a car because I hate not being able to see over traffic and bushes (I’ve noticed some SUV models that have no more ground clearance than sedans).
Any other points I should add to my criteria?
