Cool Motor Trend tests the 2016 Cherokee V6 - A crossover that drives like an SUV

An interesting review - they had the ADII V6 Latitude (Altitude?). Here are some excerpts and a link to the article:

"...this Cherokee is pretty Jeepy in a world of cars masquerading as SUVs.....

...Really, thereís something very endearing about that. In an age when brands seem to be watering down their mantras in the name of sales targets, itís always refreshing to see a brand be true to its roots. Thatís not to say Jeep hasnít strayed from its Willys beginnings or that the Cherokee is a mini-Wrangler, but when compared against the competition, thereís an undeniable Jeepness to the Cherokee. You just want to drive it over something, just because you can.....

...Up front, the Cherokee impresses with one of the most interestingly styled dashboards in the segment. ...

...Whether itís the unmistakable styling or the unstoppable attitude, thereís just something endearing about the Jeep Cherokee that makes you want to love it. If weíre being rational, we might say the poor small front overlap crash test result might outweigh the overachieving fuel economy (Real MPG scored it at 21.8/28.1/24.2 mpg city/highway/combined compared to the EPAís 19/26/22), but car purchases are often emotional choices, and this Jeep just gets us. When everything else is a car on stilts, a crossover that actually drives like an SUV is special to the right kind of person."

They said that 0-60 at 6.8 secs is typical SUV?!?!?! On what planet does a regular SUV do under 7.0!!! At least they liked it and called a real SUV not a car with a lift.
