Jeep Grand Cherokee L Overview
For decades Jeep has been the top name in off-roading vehicles, and it has earned itself a significant following as a result. With rugged durability that stems from Jeep’s past as a military vehicle manufacturer, the Grand Cherokee has long been a staple in the company’s lineup.
Now, Jeep is offering the Grand Cherokee L. It is even bigger than the extant Grand Cherokee; it can fit up to seven people! This article will detail this fantastic new offering from Jeep, which is available through Deery of Ames.
Jeep Grand Cherokee L: Specs
The new Grand Cherokee L has six available trim levels, ranging from the Laredo on the low end to the Summit Reserve on the other side of the spectrum. All of these models are, however, packed with technological features and high-performing parts. The Grand Cherokee L can be purchased with a V6 engine or a V8. The former outputs 290 horsepower, and the latter 357 horsepower.
The standard is rear-wheel drive, but there are three different all-wheel drive packages that drivers can opt for, all of which are cutting-edge. These systems – called Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Drive II – switch automatically between different driving configurations depending on the terrain you’re encountering at any given time. That’s not to say that there isn’t room for the driver to have a say, however: one can purchase the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System that lets one toggle between different driving modes including Snow, Mud/Sand, and standard Auto.
Depending on the exact options one selects, the Grand Cherokee L gets 21 or 22 miles to the gallon (combined) according to the EPA.In short, this vehicle is a beast. Drivers who are looking to optimize towing capacity should opt for the V8 engine, but even without it the car is able to tow 6,200 lbs!
Jeep Grand Cherokee L: Technology
The impressive performance statistics of the new Grand Cherokee L show that Jeep is staying true to its rugged off-roading legacy with this new offering. One thing that sets the L apart from the competition, however, is its impressive suite of technological features. You and your family will be comfortable and entertained, both during drives around town and on the long-haul rides.
All trims of the Grand Cherokee L come standard with automated emergency braking, pedestrian and bicycle detection, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. These safety features are cutting-edge. The vehicle comes standard with a 10.1-inch touch screen in the front with Android Auto and Apple Carplay.
Different trims come with different speaker systems, but all of these can be upgraded to the 19-speaker McIntosh system if one desires. This speaks to one of the coolest features of the Grand Cherokee L: the extent to which it can be customized. Jeep has designed a suite of luxury features that can be included with the vehicle. These include, for example, a power-operated rear liftgate, remote start, leather seats, driver memory settings, massaging front seats, heated second-row seats, and numerous other options.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee L is a fantastic addition to the Jeep lineup. For those with large families, or who find themselves in need of the extra storage space, the third-row seating option (or the space it allows for cargo, if need be) the L is the perfect vehicle. It combines the rugged dependability of the Grand Cherokee with a jaw-dropping array of modern technological conveniences. The car also looks fantastic, and is sure to turn heads as you drive in it, either around town or cross-country.
