I thought I'd only be faced with disappointment after driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland, but I was proven wrong after spending some time driving the American car, Jeep Cherokee Latitude. Here is my version of a pros and cons list, listed in terms of style.

Like all the Jeep models I tested, it rides so well. As they say, “It's a Jeep Thing”.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Reviewed

Stylish Attributes

  • Built in America at the Belvidere Assembly Plant in Belvidere, Illinois.
  • Starts quietly and runs smoothly. While it's not the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland, it still rides really well.
  • It appears to be smaller than it is, but it's really spacious inside, even with four adults in the car.

Not So Stylish Attributes

  • Gas mileage. After driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and Jeep Compass, I was spoiled with 30 mpg. After driving the Latitude around for a week, it seemed like gas was going fast – it gets 23 mpg, which is good, but compared to the other two, it was different.
  • Stylistically speaking, I'm not a fan of the grill.
