The 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Want to cruise around in one of the best looking SUVs available? The modern take on this classic design puts the 2011 Grand Cherokee at the top of many shoppers list of potential vehicles to purchase. It’s not just the sleek and sporty appearance that warrants further examination of this new Jeep, there are a number of additional features and components that distinguish it from competitors.

This 2011 Cherokee comes with Jeep’s 3.6-liter VVT V6 Pentastar engine. Here, VVT stands for variable valve timing. With VVT the control of the intake and exhaust valve functioning is changed as needed to maximize the performance capacity of the engine. Pentastar is a new form of engine that is scheduled to replace a number of the V-6 Jeep/Dodge/Chrysler engines that have been used recently. It is an all-aluminum dual overhead cam (DOHC) upgrade that Chrysler describes as, “the most advanced six-cylinder engine in the history of Chrysler”.

Drivers of the new Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 can rest assured that their chances of maintaining vehicle control have been maximized by design. The electronic stability control will determine when it is necessary to apply the brakes to one or more wheels to minimize wheel slippage. Also, it will reduce engine torque when necessary. Four-wheel traction control, Quadra-Trac 4WD, and stability control are systems that all work together to help ensure that this mid-size SUV can handle most any driving scenario that you are likely to experience.

Jeep Grand Cherokees have been transporting people and cargo safely and efficiently and in style for decades. All Star Dodge is the Jeep Dealer to seek out in Missouri when you want friendly and helpful service with many of your automotive related needs.
