The dashboard, doors, steering wheel and the gauges are so appealing that driving the Jeep is both a classy and comfortable ride on what has been reputed as vehicle for wild outdoor adventure.
The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is still a five-seater but unlike its earlier models, it is now roomy with improved aesthetics on the center stack and storage areas. The driver seat has plenty of space to operate its controls and driving gauges and gadgets on the dashboard are clearly seen and could easily be accessed and operated. The leg room is more than enough for the driver to move his legs to find a more relaxed and comfortable position, which is necessary for long drive or wading through the traffic. Riding beside the driver at the front passenger seat, you could feel an exceptional comfort because the seats of the Jeep have been fashioned for total riding pleasure. Certainly, how spacious and comfortable the rear seats, which are a far improvement from the past model. Apart from the soft leather, the cushion gives better bottom reception and the extra knee room space makes the Jeep a riding pleasure.
What would catch your attention as soon as you open the driver’s door is the dashboard design that is cleaner-looking and the craftsmanship of the interior is just superb. The dashboard and door panels and almost every surface of the interior are soft to touch. You will surely be attracted to the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s interior with the leather-stitched instrument panel/doors/center console armrest; quality finish and premium craftsmanship are very evident all over the cabin. The two-tone leather wrapped on the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel matches the confident grip of any driver. The stitches on the seats provide a beautiful complimentary personal touch and the luxury trim panel with real wood trim gives it a classic and classy ambiance.
Under the hood, a 290-horsepower 3.6-liter V8 engine with 260 pound-feet of torque runs the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee giving it power and optimum fuel efficiency. Ensuring that it could negotiate off-road variations with its 5-speed transmission standard, the Jeep employs air suspension for ride height adjustments. You may engage the drive-mode selector, choosing any of the five options to have the Jeep respond to the type of terrain it is treading on.
Wait until you sit behind the wheel, gun the engine and go around cruising with the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It would make you feel like you are driving a luxury car as it speeds through the paved roads, the air suspension provides a soft pillow feel as it absorbs the road’s uneven surface. The Jeep, with its 4×4 system would quietly negotiate a rough terrain and the tough chassis would carry you through potholes or rugged path, the engine won’t even give a snarl of effort.
With all the innovations and excellent features of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it is surely Chrysler’s redemption and flagship towards recapturing a niche in the auto industry. Capitalizing on the Jeep phenomenon, Chrysler is heading into the right direction with the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
