2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Have roughly 1,500 miles on a Laredo with the 26X package, Trailer Tow Group, Panoramic sunroof, and Off Road Adventure 1 package. Fit and finish seems about as good as previous MBs and BMWs. The driving experience is great with quiet ride and responsive handling for an SUV. Interior materials are (finally) what they should be. Sight-lines seem more limited and the UConnect system is ok, but takes some getting used to. Adaptive transmission needs a better learning algorithm. Very pleased so far and looking forward to driving in the mountains this ski season. Paid $38K for those interested.

Best Features

Quality of interior and exterior finish Large back seat Handling and braking for a big vehicle is quite good Very quiet on the road Big sunroof is a nice addition which I hadn't expected No live axle(s)

Worst Features

Improve rear-view camera (Infiniti much better) Seamless blue tooth disconnect is badly needed (connection is easy) Too many exciting moments crossing a busy highway. Improve the transmission so I can mash the throttle and get across 3 lanes without drama.
