The mere existence of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Edition is a true testament not only to the persistence of Chrysler’s engineering team but it is also a reminder of how many times Jeep’s parent company has somehow magically risen from the ashes. The 2011 model year has truly seemed to be the most unlikely year for Jeep and Chrysler as models like this all-new Grand Cherokee are bringing the once-troubled automaker back from the financial brink.
Prices for the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee start at $30,215, but our top of the line Overland Edition model easily crossed the $40,000 mark thanks to its tremendous number of luxury features, a 5.7 liter Hemi V-8 and some humongous yet utterly essential 20 inch alloys that looked terrific. Note this Grand Cherokee also boasted heated/cooled front seats as well as heated rear seats in addition to a heated steering wheel and power operated rear liftgate. So there was no “roughing it” by any stretch of the imagination when we took the wheel of this 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Edition.
