A few years back Trailer Life mag did a road test of the V8 Grand towing a 25' Sportsman TT and they raved about how it towed and handled.
I don't have much interest in NA SUV's but found the article in our local paper interesting.
Some of the highlights of the article were.....
...2011 model uses Mercedes platform from the ML350
...better off roading with a smoother asphalt ride
...it has the backbone of a body that's considerably stiffer than the previous Grand Cheerokee, rigidity being integral both to off roading competence and better cornering on the paved roads where most SUV's spend their lives.
...Also new is independent suspension on all 4 corners
....considerably longer wheelbase gives it a smoother ride
....it can do almost anything off road a Wrangler can do but on the street it rides and drives like a 300M sedan
V6 or Hemi all at a cost less than the previous model.
Sounds like the Grand was a nice vehicle but through evolution gets better and better.
