…and we thought we’d have to wait until Friday. Chrysler Group LLC has finally released all the details, high-res images and a video of the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Read to go on sale nationwide next month, the 2011 Grand Cherokee has been completely reengineered and redesigned for 2011 with a new sculpted body, panoramic dual-pane sun roof and a world-class interior with premium soft-touch materials. Chrysler says this will be our first hint at the future quality of its vehicles – as a result of its partnership with Fiat SpA.
“Capability highlights include a choice of three 4×4 systems, new Jeep Quadra-Lift Air Suspension and Selec-Terrain systems and towing capability of 7,400 lbs,” Chrysler said in a statement. “On-road dynamics are improved courtesy of new independent front and rear suspension systems and a new body structure that dramatically increases torsional stiffness.”
Power for the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee will come from Chrysler”s 3.6L Pentastar V6 unit making 290-hp delivering up to 23 mpg and over 500 miles on one tank of gas. That boasts an 11 improvement in fuel-economy over the outgoing model.

The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4×2 model starts at $30,995, while the 4×4 Grand Cherokee Laredo model starts at $32,995.
