Today Jeep lifted the lid on the All-New 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, a larger, more luxurious version of the current Cherokee – and an extra row of seats. The large version Grand Cherokee has a wheelbase of 121.7 inches and a total length of 204.9 inches. Inside, the Grand Cherokee L is considerably different from the standard Grand Cherokee, with an all-new dashboard that comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen – an optional 10.1-inch touchscreen. Jeep’s latest UConnect 5 infotainment system featuring wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard. Also standard is a 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster that is configurable and can display a multitude of different configurations – including the vehicle’s night vision system.
It’s been a while since I last drove the Ford Edge, so since they’ve re-designed it I thought now would be the perfect time to get behind the wheel again. I’ve always liked the Edge, but its new duds make it look quite unique and quite attractive from the front. The rear hasn’t changed much unless you view them side by side – that’s the only way to really differentiate the improvements.
The Toyota Highlander is more than just a plain-Jane unattractive SUV. However, it could never be called sexy or beautiful. In fact, you-d be hard-pressed to call it anything more than a wallflower. Like that girl at the school dance, she wasn’t particularly attractive, but she had a great personality once you got to know her. Likewise, I present to you: the 2006 Toyota Highlander. The Highlander is a midsize SUV and “combines the style, handling and comfort of a premium sedan with the space, functionality and driving confidence of a sport-utility vehicle” according to Toyota. There are times when a manufacturer would like you to believe one thing, while they deliver another. In the case of the Highlander, Toyota has hit the bulls-eye.
