Chrysler Group and Jeep have been awfully quiet the last few years. As Chrysler endured two ownership changes in two years and government-backed bankruptcy during the economic meltdown, Jeep made no new product news. It's been a cause for concern among industry wags. How, after all, can Chrysler in general and Jeep in particular survive with no new products? Well, Jeep has fired its first product salvo under Fiat ownership, and it's a good one. The Grand Cherokee is all-new for 2011. With an attractive new design, an important new engine, improved interior space, and a strong body architecture, this new Jeep bodes well for the future of the brand.
