A Letter from Herb
It's the Real Deal
It will be nice to sit back and relax on Thanksgiving and enjoy spending time with our families. As tradition now has it, on the following day Black Friday will be upon us.

2022 Honda CR-V
The Honda CR-V was one of the original compact SUVs, and it’s still one of the best. It truly takes the driveability and efficiency of a Honda compact car and packages it as a versatile SUV. This crossover has one of the roomiest interiors in its class, with tons of space for passengers and cargo. Whether you’re looking for a daily commuter, errand runner, or small family vehicle, the Honda CR-V is a perfect fit for a wide range of drivers. The CR-V is also available as a hybrid model.

The Honda CR-V isn’t the most athletic SUV in this class, but if you’re in the market for a practical compact crossover, that probably won’t bother you. Its turbocharged engine has eager acceleration that’s good for around-town driving and building momentum on a freeway on-ramp. The steering and handling remind us of a compact car, but don’t expect sports-car-like driving dynamics.

The ride quality is smooth and comfortable. The seats are supportive and comfy enough for long-distance cruising, the daily commute, and everything in-between.

Is the Daily Commute Back?
Americans' relationship with vehicles turned in a new direction over the last year and a half, and it is evolving yet again. As vaccination rates increase, restrictions ease and a sense of "normalcy" returns, new research is revealing trends in the way drivers view, depend on and take care of their vehicles.

According to Hankook Tire's latest Gauge Index survey in late spring 2021, while 45% of people say they are driving every day (more than twice as many as this time in 2020), they are going to what were previously considered "usual places" less often. The survey found that one-third of drivers still say they are heading to the office or school much less often than before (33% and 36%, respectively).

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L
This new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is 15.1 inches longer than the current Grand Cherokee, and it has a wheelbase stretched by seven inches. This allows the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L to comfortably accommodate three rows of seats. Equipped with the standard center-row captain’s chairs, the new Grand Cherokee L seats six. With an optional center bench in place, this new Grand Cherokee L seats seven.

Chrysler’s familiar 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 powers all the new Jeep Grand Cherokee L models, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. A 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is optional in the top two models, working with the same 8-speed. Rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and 4-wheel-drive (4WD) versions are available in each of the four trim levels.

While we see the Grand Cherokee L primarily being used as a luxurious family hauler, it does appear to have some off-road chops. When ordered with Quadra-Lift air suspension, the Cherokee L has a 30.1-degree approach angle, a 23.6-degree departure angle, and a 22.6-degree breakover angle. You can also order an Overland model with an Off-road package that includes an electronic limited-slip rear differential and steel skidplates for the fuel tank, transfer case, underbody, and front suspension.
