2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L – Everything You Should Know
Posted on November 3, 2021
The Grand Cherokee, staple in the Jeep line-up – exemplifying the balance of your active lifestyle and practicality – has grown to meet your growing needs by adding an L to it’s title (which definitely doesn’t stand for “loss”) and giving you a 3rd row to seat up to 7 passengers.
This larger version of one of our favourites deserves a detailed (but easy to digest) overview so you can learn all there is to know about the Jeep Grand Cherokee L and make the most informed decision.
Exterior and Interior
Rugged and yet sleek, more aerodynamic while retaining the classic look of the 7-slot grille, this full-size SUV has you swooning. LED lighting, including fog lights, emphasize the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s physique and make it easy for you to see and be seen. Large interior windows provide visibility for the driver and a top-notch viewing pleasure experience for the passengers in any of the available 7 seats.
More seating in the L does not deter from comfort or quality – with available 16-way adjustable front seats, available Nappa Leather Seating, Four-Zone Automatic Temperature Control and Multi-Colour Ambient LED Lighting. Natural wood, leather and metal trim accents along with thoughtful modern technologies, including available 10.1-inch touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system, allow for the balance of practicality, action and comfort to continue from exterior to interior. Customize your ambient LED lighting and you’re off to enjoy any drive just the way you like.
Engine and Performance
