    Do you mean making it look like a Wrangler? Because the Grand Cherokee is also a fairly iconic nameplate associated with the Jeep brand too.

    I really like the current size of the GC and hope it doesn’t creep bigger...wish the Wagoneer was the 3 row and jeep kept the GC as 2 row only but I guess the market dictates otherwise.

    Speaking of size, any word on the size of the 2 and 3 row GC compared to the current model? The wife and I compared a Traverse to a Durango, and while the Traverse was a shade longer, it was obviously much wider, which made it feel much, much roomier inside compared to the Durango.

    ...and the Traverse is more of a pain to park/maneuver and drive as a result.
    Plus FWD dynamics along with minivan handling...BOO!

    My SIL’s Traverse is cavernous inside, tons of room. It drives ok, but parking it would take some getting used to. It’s like parking a cruise ship.

    Yup...I've rented them several times.
    I prefer the Buick version and would be the version I'd buy due to better reliability and dealer satisfaction.
    Plus it seem quieter than the Chevy version too.
    They are really GM's answer to someone needing a minivan.

    Reliability is a funny thing. The Traverse and Enclave are nearly identical under the skin. The Enclave is quieter though.

    Agree...must be the dealer difference that carries over to owners reporting better reliability. Probably less returns to dealer for repeat repairs would be my guess.

    The same was the case with the Intrepid and Concord years ago. My guess is that the people buying the Buick and Chrysler spent a little more and or treat their cars a little better than the Dodge and Chevy owners.

    Were you looking at reliability for the Enclave and Traverse specifically or for Chevrolet and Buick as brands?

    If you're looking at the brands and then assuming the Enclave has better reliability, that's not really a good way to look at it. Buick has a very different lineup than Chevrolet so unless the ranking was specific to the Traverse and Enclave, Buick as a whole having a better score than Chevrolet as a whole doesn't mean the Enclave will have a better score than the Traverse.

    Depends on the dealer. The one we bought our Encore from has been pretty good...with a couple of SNAFU’s. The one over in Elkton, Md which is actually closer...well, it was to our old house, now I’m not sure...they were nasty the couple of times I’ve been there.

    The buying experience was really nice, but we had a great salesman. He’s probably long since retired now, he was in his 80’s then (2013). He said he was still working because he enjoyed it...I hope that was true, and not because he HAD to keep working.
