First new SUV in 17 years. Glad I waited!
By capt_flounder on
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Just drove home in my new Limited with the Hemi and luxury package.
Drove the Volvo XC60/90, Audi Q5, Mercedes ML350, Land Rover LR2/4 and Lexus GX.
All were nice as you'd expect a new car to be but only the ML350 and Audi came cross to the drive and none to the cost/engineering/features/value that define the new Grand Cherokee.
I'm driving it 2900 miles in two weeks, I'll update my post after breaking it in on long road trip.
Panoramic sunroof, off road capability that doesn't trade on road performance, ride and performance with the Hemi (especially the sound track on acceleration)
Leather/wood steering wheel on models other than the Overland, old school buttons for the radio instead of using a touch screen for everything, more than 5 speeds in the transmission.
