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;)

ItaliaspeedTV - Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 2010 (II)
As the first four-wheel-drive SRT vehicle, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 (2010) is the quickest, most powerful Jeep vehicle ever, offering astonishing on-road and all-weather capability and power. The specially developed four-wheel-drive system propels Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 from 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds—quicker than the Porsche Cayenne turbo and BMW X5—0-100-0 in low 19-second range and 60-0 mph in approximately 125 feet. Powered by a 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 that produces 420 horsepower (313 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 Nm), the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 delivers the complete performance package with exceptional ride and handling, world-class braking, race-inspired interior appointments and functional, performance-oriented exterior enhancements. For example, the front fascia provides aerodynamic benefits by reducing lift and drag, while providing sufficient air flow to cool the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 engine. The front fascia also helps increase brake-system cooling through integrated air ducts. The rear fascia incorporates an aggressive center cut-out in order to accommodate dual 4-inch Exhaust tips. Sill extensions result in another functional enhancement by creating downforce. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8s cabin features an SRT signature race-inspired interior. Seats with added bolstering and a performance fabric insert keep occupants firmly in place under spirited driving conditions. A dark slate gray interior color, accent stitching on the seats and a unique SRT-designed leather-wrapped steering wheel are some of the highlights. Full instrumentation includes a 180-mph (300-kph) speedometer, tachometer and temperature gauges, all trimmed with a unique blue accent. Providing horsepower and torque to the unique SRT four-wheel-drive system is a specially tuned version of the HEMI engine, which was developed by adding more displacement, increasing the compression ratio and redesigning cylinder heads, intake and Exhaust systems for better flow and increased engine speed. Power from the 6.1-liter HEMI is sent through a special torque converter to an SRT-upgraded, five-speed automatic transmission with specially calibrated driver-selectable Auto Stick, which offers a fully automatic or manual shift selection.
