Jeep Grand Cherokee Piling Up Awards

"Urban Truck of the Year" One of Many Recent Accolades 

People simply keep praising the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.  Recently, 15 independent automotive journalists named the all-new 2011 Cherokee Decisive Media's "Urban Truck of the Year."

Before choosing Jeep's new premium SUV, the Urban Vehicle judging panel spent several months driving dozens of vehicles in a variety of North American urban settings.

Consideration focused on several categories, including styling, practicality and attainability attributes of each vehicle.

"The Jeep is also perfectly proficient at traversing any terrain" said Lyndon Bell, Editor-in-chief – Decisive Auto magazine.  She continues: 

"Luxurious interior appointments – along with the fact that drivers aren't penalized into accepting a lower trim level if they opt for the more fuel-efficient engine – speaks volumes to the way Jeep's engineers and product planners incorporated 21st century realities into America's most iconic SUV."

We wrote about the Jeep's all new design recently, but thats only part of the appeal.  Its clear that auto enthusiasts love the vehicle's versatility and capabilities.  Here are some of the other awards the Grand Cherokee won recently: 

Note the last entry on that list.  It's an incredibly safe vehicle too.  

"Jeep is pleased that this panel of influential journalists has recognized that the new Grand Cherokee delivers the perfect blend of on-road refinement, superb craftsmanship, world-class design, improved fuel economy, innovative features, and legendary real-world capability," said  Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.
