New cars: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

What the critics say about the $30,995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

AutoWeek
Chrysler has a new owner—Fiat—and a mountain of debt, so it needed to make a big splash with the relaunch of its iconic Jeep Grand Cherokee. The good news: The all-new version “can still rock-crawl with the best of them, but looks a whole lot nicer doing it, both inside and out.” As the economy heals, this impressive SUV should “draw in buyers longing for comfort, luxury, and the ability to crawl up the side of a building.”
 
Car and Driver
“Hooray for Chrysler.” The new Jeep flagship is better than ever, with an interior that “befits an entry-luxury SUV” and equipment features that actually improve on Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover SUVs. “Civility has taken a commensurate move upward” in this vehicle, which offers three all-wheel-drive systems, an optional air suspension “that isolates virtually any harshness from the occupants,” and even heated, ventilated, reclining seats for back-seat passengers.

Motor Trend
“Jeep faithful can breathe a sigh of relief.” The new Grand Cherokee delivers a higher level of on-road confidence. True, its four-wheel independent suspension “wallows in the corners if you push it to the limit,” but in general it provides a “more refined ride.” In fact, under demanding off-road conditions “it’s hard to imagine how it could get any better.”
