What are some interior and exterior features of the Grand Cherokee L?

Inside the Grand Cherokee L is unlike any Jeep family member, not just because of the third-row seat. There is perfect symmetry throughout the entire cabin. Wood, leather, metal, and advanced technology all work together to create a timeless yet modern feel. Grand Cherokee L drivers will enjoy an 8-way power-adjustable front seat and a 10.25-inch digital driver information cluster. The second row will include bucket seats, while behind them is a 50/50 split-folding bench seat to provide a total of six seats. The 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen is equipped with Uconnect 5, Jeep's most advanced infotainment software, which includes wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration. Higher trim levels are upgraded to a 10.1-inch touchscreen. Outside, the Grand Cherokee L emits a bold image wherever it goes with Jeep's iconic seven-slot grille surrounded by narrow LED headlights. The front fascia has been upgraded for the Grand Cherokee L, giving it more of a forward lean, a wider grille with larger slots, and a larger front end. The larger overall design of the front end still maintains the Grand Cherokee's aggressive approach angle. Under the unique trapezoidal fender flares, you'll find 18-inch alloy wheels. The Grand Cherokee L has a gorgeous side profile with a sharp A-line extending from the grille to the taillights, creating a distinct silhouette.

What engine is under the hood of the Grand Cherokee L?

The Grand Cherokee L lineup is eligible for two engines. The standard engine is a potent 3.6L V6 engine that kicks out 290 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque. That's enough power to suit the needs of most drivers. If you're not most drivers, there is an available 5.7L V8 that should satisfy you. This comes with 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Both engines pair nicely with a smooth-shifting TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. The Grand Cherokee L comes with three available four-wheel-drive systems, Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Drive II. All three systems provide maximum traction with full-time 4WD with a transfer case and a network of wheel speed sensors. When the wheel-speed sensors detect slippage, the system automatically sends up to 100% of available torque to the axle with the most traction to regain control. Quadra-Trac I does this with a single-speed transfer case, while the following two systems utilize a two-speed transfer case with Active 4-Low mode for low-speed maneuvers. The Overland trim is eligible for Quadra-Drive II, which employs an electronic limited-slip rear differential.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L safety features

There are two stages to the safety of the Grand Cherokee L. The first is prevention. The Grand Cherokee L helps prevent accidents with over 110 available driver assists.
