debating a second vehicle

I'm debating my second vehicle. I want something smaller and a little more city friendly. Of course I'm keeping my powerstroke but I would like something else for a change of pace and not such a pain to park. I want a small suv that isnt hard on gas. I was thinking of a Jeep Grand Cherokee or Nissan Murano. Wondering what you guys think or if you know anything I should worry about with either of them.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing thought I would throw that out there. I'm leaning towards the Grand Cherokee.
