Those of us that frequent the Internet may be a bit jaded to manifestos, however awesome they may be, but Jeep's first TV ad for the 2011 Grand Cherokee shows promise. Centered around the tag line, "The things we make, make us," the video ties the new Grand Cherokee to what made, and makes, America great.

Whether the new Grand Cherokee will stand up to the pressure of the marketplace, let alone Jeep's high expectations for the vehicle, remains to be proven. But considering the strong, bold new look and push for high-quality interior elements, it may well be up to the task.

You, the buyer, will be the judge. Let us know what you think about Jeep's new manifesto below, and stay tuned for our own first-drive take on the SUV soon.
