Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 photos - inter/exterior



Looks like it houses the motor for the rear wiper?

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 photos - inter/exterior

Love the exterior but the interior still looks bland and dated compare to the offerings of cars in this class. Chrysler really needs to revamp their interiors just like what GM did after the Malibu. At least the dash is made so that the radio can be easily swapped out.

The sand/mud/snow is part of QDII but QD-Lift is added on top of QDII along with the missing switches.

Two tailgate lights... omg.........

I agree about the ebrake, and the normal brake looks a little funky to me. I hope that curved bar is made of some tough metal.

So the switch controlling snow, mud, sand etc isn't related to air suspension? I thought it was, but the up/raise & down/lower/park buttons to the right of the knob aren't there so I guess I'm wrong.

i mentioned this else where but didnt here...this model was their yest ginny.
they just got in in on thursday after all the employees took it on trails and rocks and etc. (what the salesman told me) unfortunately this model had every option but adjustable pedals and the air left options. so thats why its not on the knob (4x4 control area)

the car rode nice, it has some pep too but im used to the SRT8 as in pedal resistance and speeds blah blah. so i basically was hurtin the engine driving like i was in my SRT8. its ridiculously nice over bumps though!!! im talking i flew over train tracks that i go over soo slow with my SRT but with the WK2 i flew and rode over them like nothing was there. the seats are very comfortable but i wouldnt say more comfortable than SRT8 seats but def more comfortable than WK1 seats. lots more room for taller folks too. even the back seat had a good 6-10 inches from the front seat to my knee. i dislike the new tilt button for the steering wheel though. (its wack with a knob/turning thingy. i rather adjust it myself with more predicable setting than the WK2 has.

all in all its a nice car but i dont feel like im driving in or just being driven in a jeep. i dunno how to describe it but it very much feels like im driving a VW touareg- to be honest. its very quiet (a lot more than the WK1) though. the rear cargo had interesting sections for storage along side a spare wheel hidden below the cargo deck- on each side- which was nice.

id def entertain a WK2 SRT8 but i wouldnt rush to trade in a nice WK overland or limited just for this WK2 just yet thoug- but thats my opinion. i feel a hooked up WK1 wins my vote if i had to pick between the two... ofcourse i say this now but as it is now, im happy they finally made it out of hiding but not feeling much at all to be terribly honest here.

but im still a jeep guy, just will have to wait and see how this WK2SRT8 will come out

end essay/rant/script/preach/bickering here...hahaha

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 photos - inter/exterior

I also saw a limited at my jeep dealer and since i was there early, i looked over it with a fine tooth comb.

Pros about the WK2:
heated steering wheel on the limited
Locking gas door!
reclining rear seats
stash compartment in center console (basically opens in 2 modes)
remote start
more compartments in the rear area! (spare is in the trunk now)
built in led flashlight
auto headlight leveling
vented front seats (i think)

Cons:
shitty fabric material in lieu of plastic wheelwell area
sunroof with moonroof combo (takes up too much headroom IMO)
battery connection terminals in eng compartment seperated

ill wait till the 2012's

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 photos - inter/exterior

Lexus uses that fabric material on the RX.. it's insulation-oriented.
