We are probably going to have to move on from the Fiat anecdotes, now that they no longer own RAM or Jeep.

Stellantis is the new owner. We could make references to Peugeot and CitroŽn, the companies that combined with Fiat to form Stellantis.

Highlander is Unibody construction, as opposed to ladder frame construction:

What are the benefits to body-on-frame construction? The primary one is that body-on-frame vehicles are better at off-roading and hauling, because their design makes them highly resistant to twisting forces, the kind youíll experience when youíre crawling over rocks, for example, or when youíve loaded heavy items into your vehicleís cargo area. Body-on-frame vehicles also tend to be cheaper to build and cheaper to repair, if you get into an accident.

Hi everyone. Just wanted to post a last update to this thread as our search for the TV has come to an end. We ended up getting the Grand Cherokee L. After much back and forth we decided on either the GC L or Tahoe. The Tahoe that was available to us didn't have some of the safety features we were looking due to chip shortage. Also, Jeep is not making the V8 for the new GC L yet, so we ended up with the V6. I think this should be just fine for the Bambi and have some capability to spare.

Thanks everyone for the discussion/advice/comments.
