The new 2011 Grand Cherokee is being launched with eight different exterior color choices. New colors are Blackberry Pearl Coat, Dark Charcoal Pearl Coat, Natural Green Pearl Coat and White Gold Clear Coat. Three additional colors were added later in the model year - Mineral Gray Metallic Clear Coat, Rugged Brown Pearl Coat and Bronze Star Pearl Coat.

Pearl Coat is a pigmented mineral coating that creates special brilliance and shine by reflecting and refracting sunlight, adding a dramatic sparkle to the vehicle finish.

Clear Coat is a premium coating applied over the color coat and is specially formulated to give optimum gloss and durability, helping to protect against harmful environmental elements.

Exterior design: Rugged SUV with sleek crossover

"The Jeep design team's mission was to completely redesign the Jeep Grand Cherokee and re-define the meaning of Jeep luxury," said Ralph Gilles, Vice President - Design, Chrysler LLC. "New and existing customers will be delighted by the world-class attention to detail on both the exterior and interior. The all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee confidently competes at every level of the full-size SUV segment, and in any market."

"Our all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is much more refined, focused and sportier than the model it replaces," said Ralph Gilles. "It has classic Jeep Grand Cherokee styling with sculpted athletic exterior refinements for 2011." Even when standing still, the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee presents a striking image.

It sits higher. Has a wider stance. While simplified, the face of Grand Cherokee preserves the traditional "Jeep shield" containing the grille and headlamps. The chromed seven-slot grille, now sculpted into the front headlamps, is shorter in height - and gives the vehicle a solid, aggressive look.

With a sculpted and athletic profile, the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee features very short front and rear overhangs. Integrated fog lamps are standard. The lower front fascia is removable and includes available tow hooks. Trapezoidal wheel arches ensure that Grand Cherokee's Jeep bloodlines are unmistakable. 17-inch wheels are standard, while 18-inch and impressive 20-inch wheels are optional.

Taillamps wrap from the rear quarter panel to the back of the vehicle, creating a more upscale appearance. Obviously, a refined, stylish exterior is standard on all trim levels - even the base Laredo looks exceptional.

"The Jeep® design team purposely added premium exterior design cues to the Laredo model and it now shares its exterior features with the Limited model," said Mark Allen, Chief Designer, Exterior and Interior Design Studio. "These subtle changes have a huge impact on the showroom floor."

Clearly, it looks great. But does that look translate into improved aerodynamics?


For starters, the all-new Grand Cherokee's higher, wider stance provides a stable and commanding presence on the road. To minimize drag, every surface of Grand Cherokee is designed to maximize aerodynamic performance. The body is triple-sealed. The underbody is flat. Virtually every detail of this new design was examined to deliver a 7 percent improvement in drag compared with the previous model. The result? Greater fuel efficiency and reduced wind noise - which is a perfect complement to the new interior.
