The base Laredo has a few amenities like dual-zone automatic climate control interior and audio controls on the steering wheel. It's available only with Chrysler's excellent 290-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 and the least capable Quadra-Trac system.


The MSRP on a Limited jumps by $7,000 and brings extras like a more capable four-wheel drive system. Leather seats, satellite radio and dual exhaust tips are standard. Buyers gain access to standalone options like heated seats and an intriguing choice of engines—the standard V6, a 240-horsepower EcoDiesel V6 or a 360-horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V8.


The Overland costs almost $8,000 more than the Limited and comes with standard equipment like heated second-row seats, a sunroof, a leather-covered instrument panel, wood trim on the leather steering wheel, ambient lighting and a three-spoke steering wheel. The Quadra-Drive II four-wheel drive system is optional with the V8 and EcoDiesel V6.


The Grand Cherokee becomes luxurious with Summit trim, and with a base price exceeding $51,000 it should. Suede-like material covers a considerable portion of the interior, and standard features include a Harman Kardon surround sound audio system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and heated and ventilated front seats.


Atop the Grand Cherokee lineup is the high-performance SRT. With an MSRP of nearly $65,000, it's in rarified company for a Jeep. But the SRT brings its "A" game with a 470-horsepower HEMI engine. Expect 60 mph in around five seconds.
