Jeep Grand Cherokee Named 'Four Wheeler of the Year'
Four Wheeler magazine editors named the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland “Four Wheeler of the Year,” marking the fourth time Grand Cherokee Overland has won this award – more than any other vehicle since the publication began the award in 1974. The Grand Cherokee upstaged seven rivals in both on-and off-road evaluations.
“Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland outclassed the other vehicles in the ‘Four Wheeler of the Year’ competition with its outstanding performance, excellent off-road capability, superb on-road ride and handling, and top-of-the-line interior,” said John Thompson, editor, Four Wheeler. The magazine also noted that the all-new Jeep Liberty, which just went on sale earlier this year, was a close second in the annual competition.
This year’s “Four Wheeler of the Year” competition included Chevrolet Trailblazer, Ford Explorer, Isuzu Axiom, Jeep Liberty, Land Rover Freelander, Mercedes-Benz ML 500, and Nissan Xterra.
