In our humble opinion, one of the best sport-utility vehicles on the road today isn't the Audi Q5, BMW X3 or Mercedes-Benz GLE. In fact it would be something that's a bit more under the radar.

That would be the FCA Jeep Grand Cherokee. Talk about one seriously underestimated and underappreciated product.

I've had the pleasure of driving several and I have to say while the V8 power was nice I'd opt for the six-cylinder with an air suspension. The packaging plus UConnect is just fantastic. It's not the showiest piece in a lineup but it does everything excellently.

For the 2016 New York Auto Show (NYIAS) FCA will be bringing an updated version of the Summit model. This is the Grand Cherokee's flagship variant.

Check out the slew of photos that leaked early. According to what we're hearing the new Summit will join the Trailhawk on the Jeep stand. We'll pass along official information once it posts.

The 2016 New York Auto Show photo galleries are sponsored by Lexus.
