On the roads, coming your way are the new 2011 Grand Cherokees. Watch as the dealers drive off in sea of dreams and possibilities in the 1st video.. Imagine the modifications you can do, and what a sweeter ride yet that can be had (not that it isn’t sweet on its own). Then stick around and watch the second video of the 2011 Grand Cherokee in action on the trails. Okay.. I had to chuckle a little when I watched it. Mind you, it is a sweet ride, but I would have loved to see anyone one of our readers take it out and really show what Jeep Off Roading is about.. 😉 Give me your thoughts on the new 2011 Grand Cherokees.

Maybe you heard the news already that the Center for Auto Safety (CFAS) is petitioning to persuade the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to recall the 1993-2004 models of the Grand Cherokees because of an alleged potential fuel tank fire danger. The CFAS findings after researching crashes were these modeled year Grand Cherokees were involved was that 172 crashes fatal fire crashes resulted in 254 deaths between the years of 1992 to 2008 with 44 of those crashes that resulted in 64 of those deaths most harmful event that led to the deaths – fire.

Chrysler responded to the claim as it being an unsubstantiated review of raw accident data not taking into account cause or origin of the fire, or accurate critical real world accident data that takes into account significant factors that influence crash outcomes, such as the speed of a rear impact and the weight of the vehicles involved. There has been no official recall on the 1993-2004 models of the Grand Cherokees as to date. Here is Chrysler response to the Center for Auto Safety petition:

‘The petition filed with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by the Center for Automotive Safety presents a simplistic, unsubstantiated review of raw accident data. Indeed, its conclusions are flawed as they are based solely on a database that does not discriminate the cause or origin of a fire. Nor does it contain accurate critical real world accident data that takes into account significant factors that influence crash outcomes, such as the speed of a rear impact and the weight of the vehicles involved. The petition’s conclusions and comparisons are, therefore, invalid and their use to draw alarming conclusions about a product with an excellent safety record is misguided and irresponsible.

Statistically, rear impacts that result in serious injury are rare occurrences. Chrysler Group is confident that a proper study which considered all factors in all collisions including rear collisions with fire would show that the 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees perform as well as or better than other vehicles in their class.

The 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee meets or exceeds all applicable federal safety standards and, as noted, has an excellent safety record. There are many millions of 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees on the road whose owners and families continue to enjoy tens of millions of miles and hours of safe vehicle operation each year.

While Chrysler Group designs vehicles to protect the greatest number of motorists in the greatest number of accidents, unfortunately accidents do occur, can be dangerous and, sadly, can sometimes cause injuries and even deaths.’
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Stay posted!

It’s unclear to us exactly what marketing angle Jeep is taking for the “Rescue”, but it sure looks cool and fun.

JeepRescue Here is how Jeep touts it: “Designed for the most extreme situations and unforgiving conditions, the Jeep® Rescue concept is not only the ultimate type of search and rescue vehicle – it’s the ultimate execution of a Jeep off-road vehicle.”

Presumably, it was created to compete against a couple of the other mega SUV’s out there, and we’re sure to hear the reviews and testimonials comparing them. Our first impression was a “thumbs up” on its exterior and interior looks, and the specs show that it is loaded with equipment prepared to take on the roughest conditions.

Jeep Rescue Interior

Powered by a Cummins Diesel and featuring seating for five, the Jeep Rescue’s primary mission is rescue capability, and its list of rescue and safety equipment is impressive:

* AC electric power (10 kW) generation in the field
* Exterior perimeter lighting
* Under- chassis, point-of-view cameras for avoiding danger in its path
* 3-D topographical mapping software and topographical navigation system
* Passive, infrared (thermal) cameras for search and rescue
* Retractable 4-point harnesses for vehicle occupants
* White LEV lighting for long distance visual search and reduced power use
* Folding seats in rear compartment of vehicle
* Remote control winch – front and back
* Satellite telephone; VHF radio, digital video recorder with satellite transmission capability

We’re interested in your thoughts and impressions.  Would you get one?
