Nearly 30 years ago, the Jeep Grand Cherokee began its legacy as the most awarded SUV in history. Following four groundbreaking generations and more than 7 million in combined global sales, the Jeep brand continues to define the full-size SUV segment with the all new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

The latest iteration is designed to deliver an unmatched combination of legendary 4x4 capability, superior on-road refinement, premium styling and craftsmanship inside and out, and a host of advanced safety features and technology. 

The signature seven-slot grille openings now include active grille shutters
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L boasts exceptional capability with composed on-road driving dynamics. Three 4x4 systems - the Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II with rear electronic limited slip-differential - give the Grand Cherokee Jeep's legendary off-road capability. All three systems are equipped with an active transfer case to improve traction.

The class exclusive Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension will be offered with electronic adaptive damping, delivering class-leading ground clearance and water fording. 

Structurally, the use of lightweight, high-strength aluminium body components, including the hood and tailgate, help reduce weight and boost fuel economy. The Jeep engineering team further eliminated excess weight by employing the latest grades of Generation 3 steel in the production of the body structure. The presence of high-strength steel in the body structure creates a frame that is both strong and light.

Sleek LED tail lamps visually accentuate the rear proportions
The all new Grand Cherokee offers buyers a choice of powerful, yet fuel-efficient and refined engines. The standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine is constructed from aluminium, and is rated at 289bhp and 352Nm of torque. The engine is capable of a towing capacity of up to 2,812kg and offers an estimated class-leading range of nearly 800km.

Most notably transformed is the face of the Grand Cherokee L. Newly designed slim LED head lights are the primary focal point and accentuate the technical character of the vehicle. The signature seven-slot grille has been updated to be wider with larger individual openings, emphasising the width of the vehicle. The larger openings include active grille shutters, improving on-road performance and fuel efficiency.

Continuing with its modern theme, the rear of the vehicle features sleek LED tail lamps that are designed to visually accentuate the rear proportions. A new rear fascia and LED fog lamps are underscored by accent trim that corresponds with the front and provides visual width to the rear.

Natural wood accents run the entire length of the front panel
Inside, the next generation interior features handcrafted materials with an attention to detail as well as modern amenities, pairing seamlessly with its lean and tailored exterior.

Harmonious surface language is conveyed by a sculpted, horizontal applique that runs the entire length of the front panel. The sleek trim frames the sculpted natural wood accent, which is offered in open-pore Absolute Oak on Summit and open-pore Waxed Walnut on the Summit Reserve Package.

The rich mix of materials are contrasted by the sophisticated execution of the centre stack, which now frames the next generation, 10.1-inch display for the new Uconnect 5 system. Also new is a 10.25-inch frameless digital gauge cluster, through which drivers can select from nearly two dozen different menus featuring driver-assist technologies such as adaptive cruise control, highway assist, and speed limit traffic signs display.

The rich mix of materials frames the next generation 10.1-inch display
The Grand Cherokee L introduces a new premium package, Summit Reserve, that surpasses the benchmark for luxury in the full-sized SUV segment. Premium hand-wrapped, quilted Palermo leather, ventilated front and second-row seats, memory and massage front seats and choice of a new Tupelo interior colour add distinguishable details to the model.

The all new Grand Cherokee boasts more than 110 safety and security features, including innovative applications of technologies that enhance a driver's field of vision and enable driver-assist capabilities.

On top of Active Driving Assist, Jeep's Level 2 automated driving technology and a brand new Head Up Display system, notable additions include the Digital Rearview Camera system. It replaces the conventional rear view mirror with a 9.2-inch-wide Liquid Crystal Display screen that shows real-time video from a rear-facing camera.

Unlike a conventional mirror, the new digital camera system offers a view that is unobstructed by the D-pillars or rear seats. When not in use as a display, the screen reverts back to a reflective mirror.
