2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Pricing Starts at $30,995, Hits Showrooms in June
Sly sources leaked preliminary pricing information for the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee back in February, but according to Chrysler’s official release, the all-new SUV will start at $30,995, including a $780 destination charge.
That figure buys you a basic 4x2 Grand Cherokee Laredo with Chrysler’s new 290-horsepower, 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6. Four-wheel-drive is, of course, optional, and will set you back an additional $2000. Both versions come standard with keyless ignition, hill start assist, trailer-sway control, fog lights, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Siruis satellite radio, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Chrysler’s 360-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 is an option, although pricing for the Hemi hasn’t been announced.
The next step up from the Laredo is the 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo X, which will start at $34,995 for the two-wheel-drive model. It's followed by the 2011 Grand Cherokee Limited. Two-wheel-drive models start at $37,495, while four-wheel-drive again adds $2000 to the window sticker. Unlike the Laredo, which uses Jeep’s Quadra-Trac I system, the Limited’s four-wheel-drive system, which adds neutral and 4-low settings for the transfer case. Limited models also receive leather seating, heated first- and second-row seats, cooled front seats, a wood and leather heated steering wheel, power tilting and telescoping steering column, wood bezels, bi-xenon HID headlights, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, a backup camera with parking sensors, automatic climate control, 18-inch aluminum wheels, navigation, rain-sensing wipers, and chrome door handles.
Making a comeback for the 2011 model year is the Overland trim, last seen in 2009. The 4x2 Overland specification starts at the same price as the 4x4 Limited ($39,495), but it adds Nappa leather seating surfaces, a power liftgate, and 20-inch aluminum wheels. Four-wheel-drive adds another $3000 to the purchase price, but also includes Jeep’s new Quadra-Lift air suspension.
Production of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is already well under way in Detroit, Michigan, so look for the new SUV to reach showrooms by June.
