It was last year at the 2009 New York International Auto Show when I first saw the new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee make its grand debut. They drove it out from behind a curtain and proceeded to run it up a flight of stairs and onto the stage. It had full Quardra-lift air suspension, off-road tires and a cabin with interior components that looked like they came out of a Lexus. In short, this sucker was nice. The new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a lot riding on its shoulders and Chrysler knows it. For them the sooner they get it to market, the better.
According to Autoblog.com, the base 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee two-wheel drive will come in at $30,995. This includes the new 290 HP Pentastar V6 that is said to deliver 500 miles per tank or 23 mpg. 4×4 models start at $32,995, and at $39,995 the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited enters the stage and will include Jeeps Quadra-Trac II system which gives the consumer adjustable terrain control. Combine that with leather seats, cruise control, sun roof, etc… and you’ve got yourself one tricked out 4×4. All new Jeep Grand Cherokee’s will come with a new fully independent front and rear suspension. With all the hoopla surrounding the new Grand Cherokee, Chrysler better hope they’ve hit the nail on the head with their new high-end 4×4.
