FCA has unveiled the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, a fresh three-row variant for the SUV nameplate capable of seating seven. The new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is set to rival the Chevy Traverse and the GMC Acadia.
The new seven-seater Jeep Grand Cherokee L is slated to arrive in Jeep dealers in the second quarter of the 2021 calendar year. Meanwhile, the all-new two-row Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as an electrified model called the 4xe, will debut later in 2021 for the 2022 model year.
Inside the new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is a standard 10-inch display, with a frameless digital gauges cluster and a touchscreen interface, as well as LED ambient lighting. Jeep boasts that the new Grand Cherokee is equipped with more than 110 advanced safety and security features, including standouts like hands-on automated driving, 360-degree surround view, and night vision cameras. There’s also the latest Uconnect infotainment system, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, a digital rearview mirror, and a rear seat monitoring camera.
Outside, we see a new exterior design that incorporates reshaped, horizontally oriented headlamps, as well as the signature Jeep grille treatment. The exterior is measured at 204.9 inches for overall length, and 121.7 inches for the wheelbase.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L offers two engine options. Standard is a 3.6L Pentastar V-6, which produces 290 horsepower and 257 pound-feet of torque, while a 5.7L V8 rated at 357 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque is available.
Under the skin is a brand-new architecture, which includes an independent front and rear suspension and features Quadra-Lift air components with electronic adaptive damping. Off-roading chops are secured via Jeep’s 4×4 system with Selec-Terrain traction management, plus five terrain modes. The new model also offers more ground clearance and water fording capability than previous generations.
