New York Auto Show: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
WOW! Jeep did an outstanding job on this new Grand Cherokee. It's just the thing people want in an SUV...power, off-road ability, and comfort all in one. The newly-designed Grand Cherokee features a 3.6L 280hp V6 engine that is to be more refine and get better fuel economy than the 3.7L currently in the SUV. Don't worry, the 5.7L HEMI will still be avaiable.
The new Grand Cherokee features leather wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, seats, and even dash board...IN A JEEP!!! The steering wheel and seats are also heated and cooled.
Now for the cool part! The 2011 Grand Cherokee features a new Quadra-Lift Air Suspension system. This allows the driver to pick between 5 different ride heights:
Park Mode: -1.5in. from the normal ride height to make it easier for people to get in.
Aero Mode: -.6in from the normal ride height for improved fuel economy
Normal Ride Height: 8.1in of ground clearence
Off-Road 1: +1.5in from normal ride height. Added height to tear throught snow, mud, etc...
Off-Road2: +3in from normal ride height=11.1in of ground clearence (Best-In-Class) for crawling over rocks and such.
Jeep says this model will be in dealer showrooms by the Spring/Summer of 2010. They also said pricing has not yet been released;)
