What don't you like about the 2011 model or what do you think is missing?
 
Hey all,

Personally, I would have liked a new transmission on the 2011 model.....perhaps a 6 speed or 7 speed given that a lot of the competition already has such a tranny....

....this would have possibly improved fuel efficiency and performance.....I realize some auto websites suggest that this feature is possibly coming in future models but I think the GC is already behind the competition in this regard....

6 speed would be nice. I love the new options and features.

I think the outside looks too generic like a combo of SUV's that are already out.
I wish they kept the bubble look of the current WK headlights a little.

I'm disappointed that it has an open front differential.

It should have a 7 speed for 2012 or 2013.. not sure though. I really WISH they didn't blend the lights into the tailgate... not Jeep-like at all.

Other than that I think they did a great job with it.. yeah it doesn't have a front diff which is another downfall but until I see it in person/test drive one, I think it's a phenomenal upgrade over the current WK... and I hop that it stays relatively the same size. Jeep has done a good job with keeping their GCs compact b/c that's what the customers have always asked for.

Who's hating? This thread is supposed to be about what we don't like, correct? From an appearnce & appointment standpoint, my initial impression is much more positive than my initial impression of the current WK. I'm no engineer, but my belief is that the open front diff is going to result in a degradation of 4x4 performance in comparison to earlier Grand Cherokees. If that turns out to be the case, and I'm not sure how it couldn't be, that's going to be a pretty big dislike for me.

I thought I remember you saying you would NEVER buy one.......

I don't believe I've ever said that, but I'm pretty sure I won't be buying one. I'm hoping my WJ lasts for another 10 years. If I were in the market, the open front diff would be a big consideration. I really hope they offer some sort of LSD in the front at some point.

Re: What don't you like about the 2011 model or what do you think is missing?
 
I agree with you....but it def. would not keep me from buying one. I just dont understand why they removed/changed it

I would trade my 07 for a 2011 in a heartbeat, and get rid of chrome door handles.
