New owner, hello everyone!
 
Hi everyone,

We just bought my partner a 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland last week and we are THRILLED with it. Being an active member in other car forums, I know the requirements of the first post. So, here's the picture!

This was at the dealer right before we went home.

I drive a 2011 Explorer Limited I just got a few weeks ago. So, I look forward to sharing my experiences with these two fantastic SUVs!

Jose

Scott, I was asked the same question on the Explorer forum. Each has things I like better,

Exploder Likes
- Steering
- Technology
- Park assist (self-parking)
- Dynamic rearview camera guides
- Power-folding mirrors
- Ambient lighting
- Seat comfort

Explorer Dislikes
- Interior materials. It's a sea of plastic in there...
- Black headliner. Comes with it no matter which color interior you have. It makes the interior feel cavernous.
- Split moonroof.
- MyFord Touch. Don't get me started!

Grand Cherokee Likes
- Seating position (you sit much higher, it reminds me of our old ML350 -- I wonder why!)
- Wheels
- Panorama roof
- Interior (the GC's interior materials are truly exquisite)

Grand Cherokee Dislikes
- The spray-painted look on the Saddle leather
- MyGig (GC should have come with the new Chrysler system. That N730 RHR system is so old school...)
- Green ambient lighting. That was a shocker! All press photos show blue. We were blown away the first time we drove the car at night.

The beauty of it all is that I don't have to like one better than the other. All I have to do is be nice to my partner so he'll let me drive the GC!

Jose

I look forward to the comparisons between the 2 vehicles.

Baxter, on the dynamic rearview camera guides on the Explorer, are you saying that the Jeep doesn't have? Just wondering cause my rearview camera has guides plus a guide for hitch alignment. Just curious.
