New Blip on Pentastar!!

Got the New auto week mag today. Page 6 has the new Grand Cherokee in it.

Nice looking suv,, kinda has some X5 bmw in it. Nice all around shape.

Well the latest version of the Pentastar going in this GC will have 290hp.

Looks like it is up from the 280hp.

Just a heads up. Will be nice when it gets dropped in the Wrangler.

Your a bolt on here and a bolt on there from having 300+ ponies.

Now that will make for a nice JK!

I think the new GC looks like Isuzu this (and I'm not yet in love with it):

That's an Isuzu pictured above. You don't see the similarity? Mostly the way the side windows looks all.. I don't know.. Japanese..

It'll grow on me I'm sure.

the isuzu looks more like the saturn suv, the comparison between the BMW X5 and the new Grand Cherokee is closer.

the grill and lights look mean! but overall not sure i like it, looks more like a crossover now.

i saw the new JP and the auto news has the pentastar in production, GC getting the first ones.

"It's official: The new Pentastar V-6 is in production and will replace seven existing V-6's. The '11 Grand Cherokee gets it first."

I got what you were saying. A whole lot of hype for 10 HP?
