The all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee has started production in Chrysler's nearly 3-million-square-foot Jefferson North Detroit Assembly Plant and a second shift with 1,080 employees will be added beginning July 19 to produce the vehicle.
The all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is powered by a 290-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine delivering up to 23 mpg and over 500 miles on one tank of gas. More than 45 safety and security features are available including standard Active Head Restraints, full-length side-curtain and seat-mounted side thorax air bags, Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, Hill-start Assist, and Trailer-sway Control. The Grand Cherokee has the new Jeep Quadra-Lift Air Suspension and Selec-Terrain systems and a 7,400 lb. towing capability. Numerous advanced technology features are offered, including a Blind-spot/Rear Cross-path detection system and Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Warning, live mobile TV, SIRIUS Backseat TV and UConnect™ Web, which transforms the vehicle into a "hot spot" to deliver the Internet directly to the vehicle.
