I've always wanted to have my cake, and eat it too.
I want solid axles (so it can be lifted easily), lots of torque, good off-road options, option for open air, drives nice around town, gets decent gas mileage, looks cool, seats 5 and their luggage comfortably, doesn't cost alot.
Piece of cake. Make that vehicle please.
No. As long as it has straight axles that allow for easy modification off roaders will embrace the new offering.the Gladiator is nice. I presume it will be priced similarly to other Wrangler vehicles. The Trailhawk I'm skeptical will take off. While it might be based on the Wrangler platform (which they repeatedly mention), I'm sure it will still pi$$ off many hardcore Jeep enthusiasts as being too car-like, much like the Compass.
Who really is? The Grand is a very worn out design and urbanizing it more will probably drive down sales even further. The more they make it look like a Durango or Aspen the worse it is going to sell.Uhm; it's the next Grand Cherokee -- I'm not that excited about it honestly.
NEW YORK – It sounds crazy: Just a week after the White House scolded Chrysler LLC for relying too much on gas guzzlers, the company is heading to a marquee auto show Wednesday to unveil a new SUV.
Chrysler insists the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which clocks in at 20 mpg in its two-wheel-drive version and 19 in four-wheel-drive, is a crowd favorite and a crucial part of its lineup.
"This is a very important vehicle for us. It's one of the primary legs of the Chrysler stool," Chrysler spokesman Rick Deneau said. "Customers have told us they want this vehicle and that it's the right size."
The 2011 model is 11 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor, powered by a cleaner and more powerful engine. Still, Chrysler's decision to debut an SUV as its only new car at the New York International Auto Show seems like odd timing to say the least....
Joe, I don't like it either, but it makes sense for Jeep to make the most capable luxury vehicle on the road in addition to still making more traditional styled vehicle...as long as that styling doesn' creep into the rest of the line up.Thumbs way down on the exterior. :doh:
The assimilation into the collective is now complete. It no longer resembles anything other than a Japanese/European style SUV.
