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.
