With spring right around the corner and people ready to get out and about, Jeep released the pricing of the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L line-up.
“For 80 years, the Jeep brand has consistently introduced exceptional vehicles that set the benchmark for capability and authenticity, including the debut of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which set the standard for what is expected of a modern SUV,” said Jim Morrison, vice president, Jeep Brand North America.
“The all-new Grand Cherokee L continues to break barriers and push boundaries by ramping up its legendary 4×4 capability, adding a third row of seating for the first time, delivering even more premium on-road manners and providing the most safety and advanced technology features in its class.”
The new model is the first three-row model in the Cherokee family, helping it better compete with other large SUVs. The Grand Cherokee L Launches this spring and is manufactured at the Detroit Assembly Complex – Mack Plant.
More Space, Strong Powertrains
Jeep Grand Cherokee L is expanding into the three-row, full-size SUV segment with an all-new architecture, all-new interior, three Jeep 4×4 systems and the most advanced high-tech safety and security features in its class.
The all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L offers buyers a choice of two engines. Standard across the portfolio is the all-aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, rated at 290 horsepower and 257 pound-feet of torque. Buyers who want more power can opt for the 5.7-liter V-8, putting out 357 hp and 390 lb.-ft. of torque.
The V-8 engine is optional for Overland and Summit (4×4 models only). Both engines are paired with the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, which enhances fuel economy. The V-8 delivers class-leading towing capacity of up to 7,200 pounds.
The Grand Cherokee L introduces Active Driving Assist (Level 2) for hands-on-wheel and eyes-on-road automated driving using lane-centering with adaptive cruise control.
Available on Overland and standard on Summit models, the system uses multiple sensors, including radar and cameras, to dictate appropriate roads for the technology.
A night vision camera is also available on Overland and Summit models and uses thermographic technology to augment the reach of the Grand Cherokee L’s headlamps. Infrared sensors search for the heat signatures of pedestrians and animals in the road ahead, at distances up to 219 yards (200 meters).
The new Grand Cherokee L also gives owners a view of cargo via the rear-seat monitoring camera available on Limited, Overland and Summit models.
Variety of Option Packages
The Grand Cherokee L line-up consists of four models, Laredo, Limited, Overland and Summit. There is also a Summit Reserve option. Pricing ranges from $36,995 for the Laredo up to the aforementioned Summit Reserve at $61,995.
