What’s New for ’11

  • The all-new Grand Cherokee is both longer and wider, boasts 4-in. (102-mm) more rear legroom, improved noise, vibration and harshness performance and a 146% increase in torsional rigidity versus the outgoing model.
  • The new Pentastar V-6 debuts as the base engine. It features all-aluminum construction, dual variable valve timing, flex-fuel capability and is both more powerful and up to 11% more fuel efficient than the 3.7L it replaces, according to Chrysler.
  • The new Quadra-Lift air suspension system – standard on the 4-wheel drive Overland and available on the 4-wheel drive Laredo X and Limited – features five settings that adjust the vehicle’s ride height through a span of 4.1-ins. (103-mm).
  • Also new is the Select-Terrain traction control system, which is standard on 4-wheel drive Overland and Limited and available for both Laredo models. The driver selects a terrain and the system monitors and modulates throttle, brakes, transmission shift point, transfer case and stability control for optimum performance.
  • Standard safety features include electronic stability control, seat belt pretensioners, full-length curtain-side airbags, front-seat-mounted side thorax airbags and active head restraints.
