The Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) in April named the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee as its Northwest 2011 SUV of the Year. NWAPA journalists also recognized the Grand Cherokee as “Best Off-Road SUV.” The Jeep brand’s premium SUV has captured 29 awards since introduction last summer, including the latest – Ward’s “10 Best Interiors” award for 2011.

It was a busy month for the Jeep brand, unveiling six new “Moparized” Jeep vehicles for the 45th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari in Utah and two new models at the 2011 New York International Auto Show.

In New York, the brand introduced the most powerful, technologically advanced, high-performance Jeep vehicle ever – the all-new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8® arriving in Jeep showrooms in the third quarter.
