Looking for some opinions from fellow Toyota Owners.
I just got a new Tacoma last month, we were going to wait another year or so and upgrade the wife's ride...but she is hearing more and more rattles on her 04 Grand Cherokee so she is bugging me to go shopping. I may have to give in sooner than later. The Grand Cherokee only has 90,000 miles on it. It is the overland edition and she has owned since new. What kills me is what the original msrp was on this thing and what they are worth now.
SO....the final two choices are likely 2011 4runner vs 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I am a big fan of the 4runner, we have test drove before and I thought it was awesome. She is a bigger fan of the new styling of the 2011 Grand Cherokee. I think CHrysler did a good job of the new gen GC, but my argument is resale value sucks, and it will start to fall apart again at 90,000 miles. Where the 4runner will have a ton of value left when it hits 90k miles and its super reliable. Not to mention this is the first year of Chrysler's new V6.
Price - around the same. Similarly equipped Loredo vs SR5 both sticker around 35k. Problem for me might come with trade in value. I know I am going to get a little more at Jeep for her GC. Now I see a lot of the Toyota dealers that post their internet pricing went from taking 3k of 4runners to now about 1500 b/c of the eventual shortage, which is crazy to charge more than you were if an item is still available.
What is everyones thoughts on those two vehicles overal? 2011 GC or 2011 4runner? Do I have clouded judgement b/c I own a Toyota?
