If anyone is interested in The Grand Cherokee's cousin
2012 Mercedes Benz ML Class chassis is from the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's focus shift is to efficiency rather than performance. Maybe a diesel electric hybrid the gasoline electric hybrid model would have an 80 hp electric motor that would be paired with a twin-turbocharged and direct-injected 3.5-liter V-6.

The instrument cluster on the dash is surprisingly familiar looking given all the lines we've been fed about the two cars diverging so early on in the development process.

I think Jeep borrow that from MB since the current ML they have had the gauges that look like the jeeps.

The new ML dash controls almost look like a key board!

It isn't very pretty, that is why I stopped buying MB's a while back. Look at that huge plank of wood on the dash too, LOL

I have that same phone keypad in my 07 CLS550. It sucks. They had to put it in because the Nav isn't touch screen, and the voice recognition for the bluetooth phone system sucks.

I can't believe it's going into their flagship SUV. MB really isn't what they used to be.

German modernism, sterile and icy. Not for me, whether on current Benzes or Audis.

Interesting. That's in pretty much all the newly redesigned chrysler interiors coming out now. Didn't know it was ripped straight from MB.
