When the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee goes on sale in the U.S., the base model will see a $495 price reduction from the 2010 model year vehicle. Pricing on the 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo 2WD will begin at $30,995.
Stepping up to the four-wheel drive model will cost an extra $2,000. The Grand Cherokee will be sold in two other trim levels as well, including the Limited and Overland models. As 4WD units, base price for these begin at $39,995 and $42,995 respectively.
All four-wheeler Grand Cherokees come with the Quadra-Trac I 4x4 system, stability control, Trailer-Sway control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, and hill assist systems. They all include at least four airbags, satellite radio, and a powered driver seat. Added equipment on the Limited includes leather seats with memory settings, Bi-Xenon headlights, rear camera, sat-nav, and a dual-pane sun roof, while the Overland adds Nappa-leather, wood trim, and ventilated seating.
The base engine on the Jeep Grand Cherokee is an all-new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, a smaller displacement, but more fuel efficient V6 than what is currently offered. The Laredo can still be purchased with a 5.7-liter V8, like the 2010 model year. It is not clear which engine comes standard on the Limited and Overland, but their 2010 equivalents are also sold with the V6 as a base.
