It appears as though the full list of 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee options and pricing has leaked onto the net via the folks at Jeep Garage. Unveiled at last year's New York Auto Show, the truck is expected to be in dealerships later this year, with orders as early as June.

Pricing will start at $31,480 for a 4×2 Lardeo, while a top-level Overland 4×4 will run a more significant $45,770.

The base engine for the new Grand Cherokee will be Chrysler's all-new Pentastar V6, making 280-hp and 260 ft-lbs of torque, 90 percent of which is available from 1800 rpm. In the Grand Cherokee, this amounts to an increase of 33 percent more power and 11 percent more torque than the outgoing V6 model.

Some standard and optional highlights include push-button ignition, bi-Xenon headlights, LED lights, power tilt and telescopic steering, Adaptive Speed Control and two different transfer cases.

Notably absent from the list is any mention of an SRT model.

Our opinions are close. Was thinking that too. Also thinking how much usable space is being lost there. I guess I am going to have to see it at the car show and maybe let it grow on me cause I just do not like it. I don't like the cut-straight headlights, the sloped rear quarter and how the wheel line looks like it is at 75%. There I finally said my opinion on it. :worried:

They're still only showing a 5 speed tranny too:confused: You would think that they would be bringing on a 6 speed by now, especially with the need for better fuel economy.

It is/was a 6 speed...must be a typo.
