Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 photos - inter/exterior

OMG people - what is the big deal with the e-brake being on the floor???? I just don't understand what the big deal is about something being relocated that most of don't even use - please enlighten me!!!!

That aside - great pics. I have also seen this in person, but these pics show me a lot of things I missed, like the spare being under the rear deck and actually having some storage space back there. Also noticed the fuel filler door release which is nice. Will have to go back thru the pics - missed the LED flashlight.

For the previously mentioned dual speedos, that is a Mercedes thing. My wife's SLK (which the Jeep replaced) had both the analog and digital speedo. You have to select to display the digital one, but it was sometimes nice to do a quick glance at the numbers if say you were worried about how fast you were going after seeing a cop.

The more I see this thing, the more I wish I had waited to get it. That's OK, I'll be fine waiting for the 8-speed auto and the bump in HP and gas mileage for the Hemi.

Once again, great shots and thanks!!

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 photos - inter/exterior

I admit I use the parking/e-brake a good deal; I don't like stressing the parking pawl in the transmission, and the brake keeps the vehicle from moving around when I park on an incline.

Regarding the placement, I don't really care. Console mount is easier to use, but it's also in the way and taking up some prime real estate. If it's between having the handle on the console where it's convenient and leaving room for my arm, a nice beverage, and keeping the look uncluttered, by all means put it on a pedal down below. I even like the push on/push off variety, since unlike my 1996 Ram, I don't have to go reaching down there to find the release.

Thanks for asking, I saw the first 2 that came into the showroom at my dealership (about a month ago). They had a Laredo and Limited. I have yet to see the Overland in person. The Limited gave me a pretty good idea what to expect. I stil haven't done a test drive and I don't believe I will. The pressure would be too much and I think I would just end up walking out with the vehicle I test drive. So knowing this about myself I think I will just order and wait. I think this week will be the week when I start to harass the dealership and tell them to either order it for me or I'm going somewhere else.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 photos - inter/exterior

I like having the parking brake (it's not an e-brake; it won't stop you if you apply it while driving) on the floor. (1) It's out of the way of the console, giving a much cleaner look there, and (2) it's more truck-like. The jeep is big and heavy and (in my case) has a big truck engine. It should have truck features like a pedal-actuated parking brake. Oh, and (3) my pickup has a floor pedal for the parking brake, so it's nice having that feature be consistent across them.
