Chrysler Group LLC’s Jefferson North (Detroit) Assembly Plant (JNAP) celebrated, on Friday 21st May 2010, the launch of production of the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The nearly 3-million-square-foot assembly plant, one of the last in an urban setting, has been the site of Grand Cherokee production since its introduction in 1992. But in preparation for production of the all-new Grand Cherokee, JNAP went through a complete transformation as part of World Class Manufacturing (WCM), an extensive and thorough process to restore all Chrysler Group facilities to their original and maximum functionality.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an American icon. Offering timeless design and innovative engineering, the all-new 2011 Grand Cherokee will redefine the SUV industry, delivering true duality: ultimate Jeep off-road capability and on-road refinement for a premium driving experience.

Capability highlights include a choice of three 4x4 systems, new Jeep Quadra-Lift™ Air Suspension and Selec-Terrain™ systems and towing capability of 3,300 kilogrammes. On-road dynamics are improved courtesy of new independent front and rear suspension systems and a new body structure that dramatically increases torsional stiffness. The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee features Chrysler Group’s all-new 3.6 litre Pentastar V6 engine that boasts an 11 per cent improvement in fuel economy and delivers up to 10.2 L/per 100 kilometres and more than 800 km on one tank of petrol.

Completely reengineered and redesigned for 2011 – with a new sculpted body, athletic profile, panoramic dual-pane sun roof and world-class interior with premium soft-touch materials – the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee will arrive locally in January 2011.
