Ordering for the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
has begun, with production set for May 2010. An extended version, dubbed the Dodge Durango
(possibly Dodge Magnum
), is planned. The Grand Cherokee will debut with a standard Pentastar V6
on all models; the 290 horsepower V6 engine
is said to be smoother than competitors from Toyota, Honda, and GM, and has variable cam timing to allow for good gas mileage. The Hemi will remain optional on all but the base model.
The independent front and rear suspension have isolated cradles. Variable-rate rear springs improve on-road handling and comfort, and the spare tire is stored inside as opposed to underneath. Torsional rigidity has been increased 146%.
