Jeep Grand Cherokee L Review
Jeep Grand Cherokee L: Performance
When it comes to power, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L will blow you away. This machine is powered by a robust 3.6L V6 24V VVT engine with ESS and 8-speed automatic transmission. With this base engine, the Grand Cherokee L boasts an EPA-estimated 19 city and 26 highway MPG, 290 horsepower, and 257 lb-ft of torque.
The upper trim even has the option to upgrade to the 5.7L V8 HEMI MDS VVT engine, which boasts 357 horsepower and can tow 7,200 pounds when properly equipped. Plus, every model has the option for all-wheel drive.
With features like the Quadra-Trac® Active I On-Demand 4×4 system, you’ll be able to go off-road easily. The Jeep Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System comes with five modes to customize your performance: Auto, Sport, Snow, Sand/Mud, and Rock. Plus, the Jeep Quadra-Lift® Air Suspension System, standard on the Summit Reserve trim, allows you to power through up to 24 inches of water.
Jeep Grand Cherokee L: Technology
When you step foot into the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, you’re sure to notice all the high-tech features that will enhance your ride. One of the most notable features is the standard Uconnect® 5 infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen. It comes with wireless Apple CarPlay® support and wireless Android Auto™ integration, making it easy for you and your passengers to stay connected. Plus, upper trims have an even bigger 10.1-inch touchscreen display and standard GPS navigation.
While the lower trims come standard with 6 speakers, you can upgrade to a 19-speaker high-performance audio system on some trims. That means you and your passengers can easily turn up the volume on your favorite songs.
Jeep Grand Cherokee L: Interior Space
When it comes to the inside of the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, you won’t be disappointed. Both spacious and comfortable, you will get from Point A to Point B with no complaints.
All Grand Cherokee L models come with a third row of seats, which means space for up to seven passengers with an optional second-row bench seat. (A pair of captain’s chairs are standard and results in space for six riders.) All passengers will have room to stretch out their legs, too. Check out the measurements:
- Front/middle/rear headroom: 39.8 inches/39.9 inches/37.3 inches
- Front/middle/rear legroom: 41.3 inches/39.4 inches/30.3 inches
Want to pack the Jeep up with tools for your off-roading adventures? That won’t be an issue with the 84.6 cubic feet of maximum space you’ll have after folding the seats down. Even with the seats up, you’ll have a decent amount of room for both your stuff and your passenger’s things, with 17.2 cubic feet of cargo room.
