Don't take the 3500 lb towing limit for the V6 as set in stone just quite yet - specs are still being finalized and I have seen numbers of 3500 and also 5000. Should know for sure in the next couple of weeks...

Thanks, a 5000 rating would be plenty good.

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Production

from allpar.........
The V6 Grand Cherokee has more horsepower than Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, and GMC Acadia, with more torque than Highlander or Pilot, and similar gas mileage to all three competitors (within 1 mpg) according to Chrysler Canada's materials. Towing is rated at 5,000 lb with the V6, similar to or more than the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, and GMC Acadia; but goes up to 7,200 lb with the Hemi V8 (equipped properly).

I assume this is a mistake in the allpar article you linked:

"The new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, with a new, upscale interior...290-horsepower Pentastar V6, six-speed automatic, numerous standard features..."

Re: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Production

Hello,

New to the forum and previous jeep GC owner. Are we sure it is in solid production....? I actually went to the jeep dealer to do a build on the Overland. Two things noted-

The interior didn't have a lot of selection
A glitch occurred with the Uconnect and Garmin selection (like it was on hold)

The dealer didn't seem to have solid data on the build with few pictures. Just trying to make sure I make the right decisions, but I got an uneasy feeling things just weren't ready yet. Someone did place an order just prior to make, but they did not seem concerned with selection. Would love to get one of these rigs if they are ready.

My apologies; I also noted you guys already updated the Garmin availablility on a "standard build page". Thanks for the quick response; I'll dive a little deeper next time.
