Auburn Hills, Mich., May 19, 2010 - Chrysler Group LLC released images today of the all-new 2011 Jeep® Grand Cherokee. The new Grand Cherokee promises ultimate Jeep off-road capability and on-road refinement. Capability highlights include a choice of three 4x4 systems, new Jeep Quadra-Lift™ Air Suspension and Selec-Terrain™ systems and towing capability of 7,400 lbs. On-road dynamics are improved courtesy of new independent front and rear suspension systems and a new body structure that Chrysler says increases torsional stiffness.
