I could definitely see the wife driving one of these. The little 1.6L Turbo was pretty fun, even with 4 Adults in the car. I had no problem merging, speeding up and speeding down around Orange County. My only complaint was Ford’s infotainment still isn’t up to snuff for 2016.
It was much better than the base Cherokee I drove the week before. That had a tough time hitting 45 with 2 adults.
