Jeep Grand Cherokee : New York Road Trip
This summer we embarked upon a Road Trip to New York in the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It offered the perfect combination of cargo space, comfort, style, and a rugged ability to take on the cobblestone streets of Brooklyn. We’ve previously reviewed the Grand Cherokee here at Gunaxin, so consider this feature more of a travel photo journal. Our ultimate destination was a speaking engagement at IMPAcon, but we took the opportunity to stop at a few other key destinations on this New York Road Trip.
