What is the craptastic ranking of the current Jeep models?

I'm not even sure what the 2011 models are...

I guess the Rubicon is best, then...? Not trying to start a flame war just curious about off road capabilities of Grand Cherokee's, Liberty's, Compasses, Patriot's, Commanders, whatever, etc.

Let's define best as best off road. Then throw the venerable circa 2000 XJ in there for reference.


'bout all I know... minin' coal.

I dont know, i'm not very sold on the new jeep suspensions and the new 4x4 systems they used, prefer my xj by far (well not counting the new wrangler, that car doesn't change, still is a 4x4 beast, other than that, there just on road suvs)

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

haha x2. My friend's mom has a Patriot, and its not bad. Feels like you are in a Ford Escape though not a Jeep. I don't really like the new Grand Cherokee. My dad has a Mercedes GL450 SUV and it reminds me too much of that.

Grand Cherokee and Commander are both pretty cool. The Hemi makes them that way though. If they would produce a V8 JK Wrangler, I would buy one immediately.

I think a stock grand cherokee may be very capable off road stock, but its not something that someone wants to bang up and get scratched. Plus, I doubt there will ever be much aftermarket support for it.

Is it considered "stuck" if you get yourself out?

My parents have the new Grand Cherokee. On the inside it is more Mercedes. Very comfortable and very quiet but when it comes to the outside...the thing can wheel! It is pretty big but a great Jeep non the less.
