Chrysler’s updating the Grand Cherokee for 2008—and while it’s at it, the Jeep brand might consider some bipolar meds. How else to explain adding a two-piece bumper that makes the GC’s front end more off-roadable, and then screwing in a TV screen so the kids can watch SpongeBob? The ’08 Grand Cherokee bows in New York this week with those features plus a revamped 4.7-liter V-8 and four other engines, plus some more metallic trim and a suaved-up interior. Left intact: the shyness of those pricing guys who wait until the last minute to let go of their numbers. Come on – can the new Jeep be any more expensive than a night at the Mandarin Oriental?
