2011 jeep GC steering wheel to big?

I recently drove and put a deposit down on a new jeep grand Cherokee overland summit. The steering wheel seemed much thicker than anything else I have driven. Does anyone have pro/cons? I figure it will be something I will get use to but did not like at first. Thanks

All of the new Chrysler steering wheels are that thick. Personally i like the thicker wheel better.

I really like it a lot. When I go back to driving my Durango its steering wheel feels small.

I love the steering wheel in my WK2. It is thicker than what I've had in the past, but I have big hands so it's perfect!

I like it too, it is much better wheel in compare to previouse GC model which is in my opinion ugly car in general too They don't have anything between each other, just name.

Felt odd at first but now it feels right, part of the pleasure of the drive.

Re: 2011 jeep GC steering wheel to big?

I have a concern over the button placements on the front and back of the Steering Wheel. I now longer count the times that when turning or parking that I have inadvertently changed channels or triggered the UConnect voice command and I have small hands.
