7 best cars for budget-minded retirees

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

  • Price: $36,495
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 17 mpg
    • Highway - 25 mpg

An upscale, midsize SUV, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited is the priciest and largest vehicle on this list. Consumer Reports also tested the less pricey Laredo, but it doesn't have as many senior-friendly features.

As priced here, the Grand Cherokee uses a 290-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 to drive the rear wheels. A V-8 and all-wheel drive are available.

At 68 cubic feet, maximum cargo space is a little stingy for a midsize SUV -- the Subaru Outback has more -- but Grand Cherokee Limited shines with a full load of senior-friendly equipment, such as dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front/rear seats, eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar control, navigation system, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with redundant audio controls, keyless enter/start, parking assist, voice-activated Bluetooth connectivity and a five-year roadside-assistance warranty.
