Got mine earlier this week
Blackberry Pearl Limited 4x4 with Frost Beige; HEMI; 730Nav; 20" wheels; tow package IV.
Only have 150 miles so far, but I'm impressed with the vehicle. It is an SUV, and it feels like an SUV, but a very nice one. The cabin is nicely isolated and looks and feels nice without being flashy. The rear seat is comfortable, particularly since it reclines, and the panoramic sunroof is just cool.
The ride is pleasantly compliant for an SUV, particularly at speed. The typical low-speed jiggles are subdued but not absent. The HEMI moves it around effortlessly, and the handling is better than any other SUV I've ever driven, but I'll never mistake it for a sports car. I find the cabin to be plenty roomy. The vehicle just has a solid, well-put together feel to it--no squeaks or rattles so far. I hope it continues to feel this way.
I like the exterior styling and find it immediately recognizable as a GC Jeep. I could do without the extra chrome on the Limited (and Overland) exterior, but find it tasteful as that stuff goes--I wanted the frost beige interior, so I had to go Limited. I could have gone 18" or 20" on the wheels, but 2 things led me to the 20s: 1) greater availability for the build I wanted; and 2) I prefer the matte paint on the 20s to the polish of the 18s. The 20's brand me as a lightweight, but I suspect I'll never need the extra tire height.
In sum, I view the vehicle as a well-executed SUV that is capable off and on road, but hasn't gone too far down the crossover path. This vehicle is my SUV, my van is my van, and I don't care to have a vehicle that attempts to be both. The 2011 GC is both sporty and practical, though not the last word in either. It feels like a high-quality vehicle, and knowing how capable it is makes me feel good. If I don't climb a mountain one day, then it won't be because of my vehicle.
I have a 9-month old son, and I've begun planning the outdoor adventures. The top safety pick helps too.
