In show business, the time-worn unwritten rule is you always save the best for last. Build to that crescendo, and end the presentation with a socko finish. That’s what happened this morning at the Jeep® reveal at the North American International Auto Show. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT closed the show, radiating power and luxury, functionality and style. For 2014, Grand Cherokee SRT checks all of those boxes.
Among the distinctive features that make the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT special are the new signature LED character lamp treatment, a brawnier grille, a new, one-touch...

Traveling with pets takes as much work and planning as traveling with small children.

The story leading up to a Swedish magazine’s scurrilous accusation against the 2012 Grand Cherokee reminds me of the 1973 movie, The Sting.
Both involve cheating. But unlike the movie, the magazine won’t win any Oscars and the Swedish characters can’t match the professional genius of Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
The movie is divided into scenes that have names such as “The Set-Up,” which describes the criminal enterprise the characters use to target their mark.
The magazine’s mark was the 2012 Grand Cherokee. And the vehicle was definitely “set up,” which is nothing short of criminal.
