Completely redesigned for 2011, the Jeep Grand Cherokee boasts an all-new sculpted body with a sleek exterior, smoother lines and improved aerodynamics. The vehicle's 114.8-inch wheelbase is 5.3 inches longer than the 2010 model, and the lower front fascia is now removable. The 3.6L V6 that comes standard on every Grand Cherokee is a brand-new for 2011.
Each Grand Cherokee trim is available with a choice of Quadra Trac 4-wheel drive systems. Soft-touch interior materials make the luxury more palpable, and more comfortable with more than four more inches of rear-seat, knee and leg room. Jeep's CommandView®, a new dual-pane panoramic sunroof, extends from the windshield to the rear of the vehicle and is optional.
Introduced in 1992, the Grand Cherokee is a signature vehicle for the Jeep brand intended to appeal to buyers looking to go off-road and those who enjoy a luxury SUV. It uses the same rear-wheel-drive uni-body platform as the new Mercedes-Benz ML. For 2011, the base Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x2 starts at $30,215, about $500 lower than the outgoing model. Pricing for the Laredo 4-wheel drive starts at $32,215.
