“The Ideal Vehicle Awards recognize vehicles that best meet their owner’s expectations and desires,” said George Peterson, AutoPacific president. “These are vehicles that are ‘just right’ for their owners.”

Approximately 50,000 new vehicle owners, who purchased their vehicle in 2018 between the months of September and December, were surveyed in 2019 between the months of January and May, for this year’s AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Awards. The respondents had to drive their new vehicle for a period of approximately 90 days in order to participate in the awards-process.

With four available 4×4 systems, drivers can customize their driving experience and outdoor adventure level in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. A maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds beats out competitors of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, giving drivers ample ability to tow outdoor toys and gear. The Selec-Terrain traction management system is a class leader and delivers a responsive driving performance, especially over challenging surfaces.
