Lots of bells and whistles, but the most outstanding feature after owning a Grand Cherokee and a Liberty is the RIDE. It was explained to me it is on a car chassis and not a truck chassis therefore the vehicle rides more like a car....smooth! I LOVE that. Only downside is I was used to an 8 cylinder and a six cylinder and while I really enjoy the gas mileage, I am used to a little more power - they didn't come in 6 cylinders or I would've bought that. The longer wheel base makes it more controllable on the freeway.
