Chrysler Group's Jeep® brand stands for select qualities: Ruggedness, adventure and Americana are a few. Few would argue that it also stands for individualism -- allowing drivers to make a statement whereever they steer their Jeep vehicles.

 

During the 2011 New York International Auto Show, Jeep brand President/CEO Mike Manley reinforced that quality with the introduction of two more members of the Jeep family: 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Mojave and the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.

 

Above, you can watch and listen to Manley talk about each vehicle. You also can see 40 images of the Wrangler Mojave and 50 of the Grand Cherokee SRT8 on Flickr. (Tip: We uploaded high-resolution images so you can download some great desktop images.)
