| CarReview's opinion of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee|
- Smooth power delivery from 290 hp Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine
- Quadra-Trac all-wheel drive system will never leave you stuck in the mud or snow
- Leather-lined seats provide the support and comfort for all-day driving trips
- Interior quality and design on par with some luxury-class vehicles
- 2nd row passengers also get heated seats
- iPod interface and controls have poor ergonomics
- Owners need to pony-up for the Trail Rated Quadra-Drive II system if they plan to do any rock-crawling
Verdict: The new Grand Cherokee blends an exceptionally refined and solid chassis with a plush interior. It provides nearly full-size SUV roominess, towing capacity and, of course, it maintains the Jeep trail capability. The base Laredo will start at $32,995, the Limited will go for $39,994, and the Overland for $42,995.
For luxury, solid build, all weather and terrain conquering skills, I would have to say that the 2011 Grand Cherokee is one of the best sport utility vehicles I have ever driven. If this is where Fiat wants to take Chrysler, cue up the band.
