New versions of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty SUVs will arrive at dealerships next month. Jeep says the new Grand Cherokee Overland Summit and Liberty Jet exist because of customer demand for models that offer more luxurious accommodations without giving up the capability you expect from the brand.

The Overland trim of the redesigned Grand Cherokee was already a rather luxurious SUV, but the Overland Summit takes it even further. It adds chrome mesh grille inserts, chrome fog light surrounds, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, saddle-color leather upholstery with special stitching, adaptive cruise control, collision warning and a blind spot monitoring system.

The Overland Summit commands a steep price. Rear-wheel-drive versions start at $42,495 while four-wheel-drive models cost $45,995. That’s $4,085 more than a regular four-wheel-drive Overland. The destination charge is $780.

Meanwhile, the Liberty Jet features a mix of exterior and interior changes that include smoked headlamps, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, premium audio system, rear parking sensors and special badges. Technically it’s an option package available on Sport and Limited trims for $1,495 and $995, respectively.
