Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I had the opportunity on a hot, sunny day in Arizona, to compare a car with a black interior to an identical car with a light colored interior. The difference in seat temperature was considerable. ...

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

I wouldn't expect the v6 0-60 to be less than 8 seconds, and v8 not less than 7 seconds.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

What happened to "stop and go" on the adaptive cruise control? The press release doesn't mention it.

Re: Question about non-ventilated seats (Limited)

The Laredo X/Limited seat looks like it has more padding in it. Does it?

Re: 2011 Dodge Durango Test site

Chrysler's press release refers to the 2011 Durango as a "performance suv".

Re: 2011 Dodge Durango Test site

It the Durango is Chrysler's "performance SUV", then a Durango SRT8 makes more sense than a GC SRT8

Re: Way out west

I live in AZ, and a dealer told me today that they'd have the 2011s in "within a month." It's not fair!

Re: 2011 Engine Options

I am amazed at how many of the reviews said that the only reason anyone would want the Hemi was for towing. What do you guys who have driven GCs with both engines say to that?

Re: PICS from Grand Destination

If acceleration is of primary importance, the way to go would be Laredo X 4x2 with the Hemi and no sunroof. The weight figures I've seen suggest that such a vehicle would weigh more than 400 lbs...

Re: PICS from Grand Destination

If the 0-60 time for the V6 and V8 are 8.4 and 7.4 seconds respectively, I just lost interest. I was expecting less than 7 seconds for the Hemi (but not much less).

Re: Dealer Availability - Post here when your Dealer Has One on the Lot!

There must be an embargo on allowing test drives of the cars dealers have received. Does anyone know when we will be allowed to drive them?

It appears that there is no radio tuning knob. If not, it needs one.

Re: Dealer Availability - Post here when your Dealer Has One on the Lot!

Are any of these dealers allowing anyone to drive the cars? I assume no dealer is permitted to sell them. When is this prohibition supposed to be lifted?

Re: Dealer Availability - Post here when your Dealer Has One on the Lot!

I wonder if "not drivable" is because there is an embargo on test drive reports.

Re: Dealer Availability - Post here when your Dealer Has One on the Lot!

It's strange that the guy said that it's "not drivable." Wonder why not.

He described the air suspension, whereas the car obviously doesn't have it.

The engine sounds like a thrashing...

Re: Are you planning to buy a 2011 GC? What other models are you considering, if any

I like what I see in the 2011 JGC. I think it will be more fun to drive than my RX350 if the on-road handling has been improved over the current model. A Limited with the hemi and RWD is what I'd...
