2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee named “SUV of the Year” by Truckin’s SUV magazine
Auburn Hills, Michigan – The all-new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the winner of Truckin’s SUV magazine’s “SUV of the Year” award.
“All of us at Truckin’s SUV are proud to name the all-new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee “SUV of the Year,'” said Carl Calvert, editor of Truckin’s SUV. “We put all of the vehicles through a series of exhausting tests, including comprehensive performance testing, a gruelling off-road course, and two weeks of tough use, and the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee was the clear winner.”
Truckin’s SUV praised the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee for its “refined ride, off-road performance, and high-feature content coupled with notable quality, excellent road manners, and a warm and inviting interior.”
“We are very pleased to add yet another award to the trophy case of the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee,” said Craig Love, Vice President, Rear Wheel Drive Product Team and Core Team Leader. Last week, 4-Wheel and Off-Road magazine named the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee the winner of its 4×4 of the Year competition.
The Grand Cherokee’s latest recognition will appear in the February 2005 issue of Truckin’s SUV.
