The Jeep Grand Cherokee enjoyed a total redesign for the 2021 model year and still looks as handsome as ever. With that redesign came this, the lengthened Grand Cherokee L. The base model features standard heated side mirrors, automatic LED headlights, and 18-inch alloy wheels. One step above that is the Altitude which adds rain-sensing windshield wipers and 20-inch black-painted wheels. The exterior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee L Limited features exterior mirrors with memory as well as an automatic-dimming exterior driver mirror. The Overland includes power-folding mirrors while the Summit comes with a 360-degree camera. A CommandView dual-pane panoramic sunroof comes standard on both the Overland and Summit, while the Summit Reserve is the only model to ride on 21-inch wheels as standard.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee L is an extended version of the standard Grand Cherokee and measures 204.9 inches in length, with a wheelbase of 121.7 inches. That body length is over 11 inches longer than the standard two-row Grand Cherokee. The Jeep Grand Cherokee L is 77.5 inches in width when the mirrors are folded and 71.5 inches tall. The standard ground clearance is 8.5 inches but this rises to 10.9 inches when fitted with air suspension. With the Jeep Grand Cherokee L's larger dimensions, it does take a bit more patience to park than the normal Grand Cherokee, but that's the cost of having a spacious third seating row.
The Grand Cherokee L can be taken off-road, and its approach, break over, and departure angles come in at 20.6/18.2/21.5 degrees, respectively. Going for the more capable air suspension setup sees those figures improve to 30.1/22.6/23.6 degrees, respectively, in the case of the Overland.
In terms of curb weight, the lightest model is the 2WD Laredo at 4,524 pounds, while the heaviest is the 4WD Summit with the V8 engine at 5,279 lbs.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee L paint options are somewhat limited in base form. New owners can choose between $395 options such as Diamond Black Crystal Pearl, Baltic Gray metallic, Silver Zenith, and Velvet Red Pearl, or the only no-cost option, Bright White, on the base Laredo or Altitude. Limited models add Midnight Sky and Rocky Mountain Pearl for $395 each. The Overland trim is the first one that can be optioned in a two-tone paint job such as Velvet Red/Black or Bright White/Black. Other than Diamond Black, the Summit and Summit Reserve only come in a range of two-tone color choices, and all but Bright White/Black will cost $395.
Overall, there are enough Jeep Grand Cherokee L colors to satisfy most customers.
The Grand Cherokee L is a large car, so any dark hue will slim it down a notch or two. We are big fans of Baltic Gray metallic.
Most colors cost an additional $395.
Wheel sizes range from 18 and 21 inches depending on the trim level.
