Pretty honest review, I think. This GC is going to be big. Jeep has been keeping Chrysler's head above water for a long time and like the review says, other than the 300, Chryslers other cars are not doing well. Jeep really hit a home run with this.
I still don't like how the back of the Jeep looks but it's slowly growing on me. Like Pete said at the Belmont test drive, you don't look at the back very much, you're inside looking at the interior a lot more. He's right and the interior is fantastic!

On the heels of our brief exposure, we can say that the Jeep has the Honda and Mazda beat on off-road ability and interior trim (at least in higher-spec form), but it’s not as nice to pilot as the Land Rover or Volkswagen. The Toyota 4Runner competes here, too, but it’s not as well finished as the Jeep.

Given all of this, it’s hard not to think of the new Grand Cherokee as a good value, especially when you consider that a V-8–powered ML550 4MATIC—the GC’s platformmate—nears the $70,000 mark when equipped like a loaded Overland. The last time a Chrysler product offered a similar combination of value, class-competitive dynamics, and handsome styling was more than a half-decade ago, when the 300 sedan burst onto the scene. But the momentum from that car wasn’t sustained, and the company went broke. The 2011 Grand Cherokee doesn’t redefine the SUV, but it does demonstrate that vitality and competence are indeed present in Auburn Hills. Now let’s see if Chrysler can build on it, because the company as a whole still has a long way to go.
