The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is already earning high praise in its standard form, and now Chrysler's Mopar division has released a host of accessories to beef up the new sport-ute's style and functionality.
Grand Cherokees can now be fitted with the usual collection of exterior bolt-ons, including a range of new wheel options, skid plates, and side steps. What's more interesting, however, is the stuff available for the Grand Cherokee's interior. Mopar is offering FLO TV, a live, mobile television streaming service, making the big Jeep the first SUV available with this feature. That sure beats listening to the same episode of Yo Gabba Gabba over and over. Additionally, the latest version of Chrysler's UConnect infotainment software is available, which can turn the SUV into a mobile wi-fi hotspot.
See the full list of available Mopar goodies in the press release after the jump, and scroll through our attached gallery to see high-res shots of Grand Cherokees fitted with these add-ons.
