Of the several vehicles that Chrysler detailed in its restructuring presentation to congress last February and in the five-year plan Sergio Marchionne outlined in November, two have caused the most buzz and among journalists and Chrysler fans: the Fiat 500 and the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. We've spilled a good bit of ink about the former, and now the Grand Cherokee is making some waves of its own.
Earlier, JeepGarage.com appears to have broken some news about the 2011 Grand Cherokee's pricing and trim packages. Now, the Jeep Jamboree Facebook page has posted shots of the Cherokee navigating the Rubicon Trail, and from what we can see, Jeep's top model seems to have done pretty well. If all goes as planned, the Grand Cherokee should roll onto lots later this year with its "Trail Rated" badge firmly attached.
Of course, that does raise a question: how many folks will be willing to drive their $31,480+ Grand Cherokees over boulders the size of a Chrysler Crossfire? And also: how many would be interested in motoring over an actual Crossfire?
