NOT much can match the Grand Chero­kee for buy­ers want­ing a slice of Amer­i­cana in the UK. With its large di­men­sions, im­pos­ing seven-bar grille and chrome trim, it cer­tainly stands out in the lux­ury SUV mar­ket.

While the flag­ship Hemi-pow­ered SRT8 is bonkers, the stan­dard 3.0 CRD diesel has plenty of per­for­mance and pulling power for most needs. It’s just a shame that the Grand Chero­kee isn’t as spa­cious in­side as its ex­te­rior di­men­sions would lead you to be­lieve.

Price range: £47,580-£72,830 Our pick: 3.0 CRD V6 auto Over­land (£51,280) En­gine: 3.0-litre V6 diesel, 247bhp Trans­mis­sion: 5-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 126mph Econ­omy: 40.4mpg CO2: 184g/km
