2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

It's been a long time coming, but the redesigned 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is finally here. It couldn't come soon enough for Chrysler, which is desperately in need of new products to give consumers a new reason to walk into its showrooms.

An off-road-capable midsize SUV perhaps isn't the best type of vehicle to debut when the car-buying public has set off a seismic shift toward crossovers, but it's what the automaker has to put in the game right now.

Those things aside, the new Grand Cherokee manages to provide on-road driving refinement that can go toe-to-toe with the best that the crossover segment has to offer — and it does so without sacrificing its considerable off-road capabilities.

It's a no-excuses SUV if there ever was one and, in effect, takes on Land Rover at its own game. Let your brain wrap itself around that concept for a moment, and it becomes clear how much the Grand Cherokee has evolved.
