We caught our first glimpse of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee way back in 2009 at the New York Auto Show. It was more of a sneak peek, though, as Chrysler's bankruptcy and shotgun wedding to Fiat had the new father-in-law, Sergio Marchionne, personally ensuring every new model going on sale under his watch met his expectations. So the Grand Cherokee quietly faded out of the picture until this May when we finally took our first drive in the new Grand.
While the Grand Cherokee was receiving its finishing touches, the rest of the 2011 Jeep lineup underwent upgrades that range from minor appearance packages on the Liberty to an extensive suspension, interior, and exterior makeover with the Compass. Mike Manley, president and CEO of Jeep, says Jeep "continues to improve the formula" as it prepares to celebrate its 70th birthday.
