The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been spotted during testing, and the SUV wasn't wearing any of the camouflage we're used to seeing. Even more surprising, engineers weren't putting the truck through its paces out at Moab. Instead, the eagle-eyed crew over at Piston Spy nabbed a few shots of the Grand Cherokee as it was making laps of the Nurburgring.

Why would Chrysler be interested in flogging the newest Jeep around everyone's favorite test circuit? That answer may have something to do with the truck's new adaptive air suspension. Called Quadra-Lift, drivers will be able to choose from a number of settings that will either raise or lower the 2011 Grand Cherokee ride height according to the road conditions. While there will be two settings for blazing your own trail, including one that raises the truck by a hefty 2.6 inches, the system also features an aero setting that lowers the vehicle by around half an inch. Our guess is that's the setting you see above.

When the much-anticipated 2011 Grand Cherokee finally hits the market, buyers should be able to choose from a number of engines depending on where they call home. Word is a V6 and V8 options will be available here in the states, while buyers in other parts of the world will be able to opt for a diesel.
