2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Start at $30,215

2011JGC
Chrysler’s lone new product for the year is the redesigned Jeep Grand Cherokee, which goes on sale in June. Today, the company announced a starting price of $30,215 for base Laredo 4x2, $495 less than the 2010 Laredo 4x2. It will cost $32,215 for the base Laredo 4x4 model, both before a $780 destination charge.
 
There are three trim levels, with a Limited 4x2 starting at $36,715 with the 4x4 starting at $39,215 and an Overland 4x2 starting at $38,715 with the 4x4 starting at $42,215 before destination. A 360-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 will be offered as an option as will a Trailer Tow Group. No SRT8 model was announced for 2011.

The three trim levels come standard with Chrysler’s new 3.6-liter V-6 engine putting out 290 hp and returning 23 mpg on the highway. It matches up well against Toyota’s new 4Runner with a 270-hp V-6 returning 22 mpg on the highway, though a base 4x4 4Runner starts at $30,915.

I've had two JGC (2001, 2007) and would only recommend it to my worst enemies. I hope this time around Chrysler made 'reliability' a standard feature. Let the rebates begin.

Gorgeous upscale design, but I wouldn't go anywhere near it due to Chrysler's past reliability issues.

"...matches up well against Toyota’s new 4Runner..."

so what?
Both don't sell. And will not sell.

Solution for owning a JGC: Buy two so you'll have one to drive while the other one is in the repair shop.

Thomas

Or do what we did and buy a Toyota 4x4 as it's been a million times more reliable than our previous Jeeps.

And according to the promise they made to the government when applying for bailout funding, it will have well above-average reliability according to Consumer Reports. I'm glad that CR has proactively certified the reliability of Jeep's future models, as it appears that all of their present models suffer from subpar reliability.

Also, what is up with the high beltline? That thing must be worse than a Dodge Magnum to see out of!

Had an 03 JGC and the tranny blew after 5 months of ownership. I now drive an 06 BMW x3 and it has not been in the shop once! Plus it's a blast to drive (unlike the JGC!) and it costs about the same price!!

SRT8 please!

cody

yeah, i'm not a fan of the current trend in auto design to raise the beltline. i miss the airy feel that cars used to have.
