All-New Jeep® Grand Cherokee
By Shereen Shabnam
The All-New Jeep® Grand Cherokee L is designed and engineered to deliver an unmatched combination of even more legendary 4×4 capability, superior on-road refinement, premium styling and craftsmanship inside and out, and a host of advanced safety and technology features.
With the reveal of the All-New Jeep® Grand Cherokee L in the Middle East region, the Jeep brand marks 80 years of 4×4 leadership with the rebirth of an American SUV icon –blending off-road capability with a premium on-road driving experience, which, for the first time in the vehicle’s history, includes a third row of seating.
The proportion of the All-New Grand Cherokee L was inspired by the original Wagoneer, Jeep’s first full-size luxury SUV. Grand Cherokee L’s lean profile features a longer hood and cab, which shifts the vehicle rearward to give a sense of motion with a ready to react response. A forward-tipped grille further enhances the length of the hood and gives a respectful nod to Wagoneer’s iconic design.
A lowered, tapered roof improves aerodynamic performance and efficiency without sacrificing its cargo spaciousness and utility. For the first time, a premium, full suite of LED lighting is standard on all Jeep Grand Cherokee trim levels, which allowed for design flexibility and helped to shape the identity of the vehicle.
The next-generation interior evolves to create a more refined expression, featuring handcrafted materials with an attention to detail and modern amenities that pair seamlessly with its new lean and tailored exterior.
Available first in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, Stellantis is currently the only automotive manufacturer in the world to carry a McIntosh audio sound system, which comes standard with the Summit Reserve. The advanced, high-performance audio system features a 17-channel amplifier with a maximum output of 950 watts and 19 speakers, including a 10-inch subwoofer, to envelope vehicle occupants in high-definition sound.
The center stack has been realigned to be even more accessible to the driver. A bright, structural element neatly 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 from which the user can select driver-assist technologies such as adaptive cruise control, highway assist, night vision and drowsy driver detection.
The All-New Jeep Grand Cherokee L is re-engineered with a focus to optimize comfort & handling, while reducing weight, improving fuel economy and delivering improved 4×4 capability along with unrivaled premium on-road driving dynamics.
Legendary off-road capability begins courtesy of three 4×4 systems – Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II with rear electronic limited slip-differential (eLSD). All three systems are equipped with an active transfer case to improve traction by moving torque to work with the wheel with the most grip.
The Grand Cherokee L’s class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system lets customers choose the on- and off-road setting for optimum 4×4 performance with five available terrain modes (Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, Mud/Sand) to provide optimized calibrations for any given driving scenario.
The All-New Jeep Grand Cherokee L offers buyers a choice of two powerful, fuel-efficient and refined engines with proven performance for any driving situation. Standard is the all-aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, rated at 293 horsepower and 353Nm of torque.
Buyers who want more power can opt for the award-winning 5.7-liter V8, rated at 357 horsepower and 529 Nm of torque delivered over a broad power band.
