  • Jeep Grand Cherokee: There are several engine options for Lyndon, KY shoppers to choose from on the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It starts with the 295-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Moving up a level brings you the option of the 360-horsepower 5.7-liter V8. It kicks out 290 pound-feet of torque. For even more power, check out the 6.4-liter V8 on the Grand Cherokee SRT, as it churns out 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It is equipped with a specialized all-wheel drive system, tuned for off-road use. The top-trim Trackhawk® gives you an incredible 6.2-liter V8, with 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with an upgraded eight-speed automatic transmission.
  • Toyota 4Runner: This long-running SUV comes with just one engine choice. The 4.0-liter V6 gives you 270 horsepower and is matched to a five-speed automatic transmission. While it rides smooth enough, it can't keep up with the power put out by the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
  • Ford Explorer: The Ford Explorer provides a challenge in the power department, with its three engine options. A standard turbocharged Ecoboost four-cylinder gives you 300 horsepower. The strongest option comes in the form of the 400-horsepower twin-turbocharged Ecoboost V6. Each comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
  • GMC Acadia: You'll find three engine choices for the Acadia. The standard is a 193-horsepower four-cylinder. The mid-level SLT trim gets an upgrade with the 310-horsepower V6.


  • Jeep Grand Cherokee: The intuitive and easy-to-use Uconnect® system starts with a seven-inch touchscreen and has standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, Bluetooth®, and two USB ports. You also have available navigation, satellite and HD radio and a handy rear-seat dual-screen entertainment package. Taylorsville shoppers can upgrade to a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen.
  • Toyota 4Runner: The Toyota 4Runner's Entune infotainment system comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen and satellite radio. As far as standard features, it is lacking. It comes with its own native phone-app connectivity, which is a more costly upgrade.
  • Ford Explorer: Ford's SYNC infotainment system comes with a standard voice command system, Bluetooth®, and a 4.2-inch display. The Driver Connect package comes as an option on the mid-level XLT trim. That's where you will find the larger eight-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and extra USB ports, that come standard on the Grand Cherokee.
  • .
  • GMC Acadia: The Intellink infotainment system comes with a seven-inch touchscreen, a Wi-Fi hotspot and smartphone integration. For a little extra you can get navigation, rear-seat entertainment and a sunroof.

Interior Comfort

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee: Up to five people can ride in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Cloth upholstery comes standard, but you'll find Nappa leather and suede upholstery options. The back row can comfortably fit two adults and all the seats are large and supportive. Headroom and legroom should seldom be an issue for passengers. You'll find 36.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row.
  • Toyota 4Runner: The 4Runner also seats five but has the ability to add a cramped third row for an added charge. Its cloth upholstery is basic but does bring you the option of leatherette or leather upholstery. The second row can slide to get into the third row easier. Adding the third row limits your cargo space to just nine cubic feet of cargo space.
  • Ford Explorer: The Explorer comes with second-row bucket seats or a third-row option. With the standard second row, the cabin is open and provides plenty of legroom. That all disappears when you add a third row.
  • GMC Acadia: Large, contoured seats are located in a well-situated cabin. A third row is also available on the Acadia, which seats more people, but provides a more crowded environment. You'll find 13 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row.
