64 dBA
 
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 was recorded by Car and Driver Magazine as having the quietest interior sound level of 2011 (albeit tied with a Subaru) while driving @ 70mph :clap:

I can tell you that my WK @ 70mph is loud, it rattles and my mirrors whistle. Here's to product advancement :thumbsup:

Close your windows. Mine is extremely quiet at interstate speeds.

no he has an 07 wk that whistles and rattles... he's saying that the wk2 is quieter than the wk is.

That is quite an achievement for a 4x4.

I came from a Patriot, which did NOT have particularly good sound isolation nor did it have good aerodynamics. With the tires I had on there (Goodyear Tripletred- great for traction but lousy for noise), the thing was rather loud when on the interstate.

By comparison, the Grand Cherokee is silent as a tomb.

Silent as a tomb.. that comment makes a library sound like a rock concert. And that is a fine achievement for a SUV.

I have the first gen WK, not the WKii :o

Hope its as quiet as my 09 laramie, my overland should be in any day now.

they really should take the measurements in sones instead of decibels since its a better measure of what the human ear can hear...however I don't think it would matter since the WK2 is at least as quiet as my E550, if not more so.

The jeep is very quiet every car I ride in now doesn't even come close.

The nissan leaf is 21db but I am sure at idle. Thought this video was cool though:
