Grand Cherokee is a hardcore off-roader, showing the luxury soft-roaders how to get their tyres dirty, and it’s competent on-road, too. After following its smaller brother on to the British market in 1994 - early V8s were all left-hand drive - the right-hand drive 4.0-litre came along in 1996, and the Grand took off as a dearer and more exclusive choice in the family 4x4 market.

It’s roomier than the old Cherokee and equally rugged, but it’s even thirstier with the V8 engines and the heavy depreciation can blunt its appeal.
