Jeep interiors have come a long way, and even in base form feel upmarket. The base Laredo features mostly basics, but the higher up in the trims you get, exclusive features such as quilted leather seats and massaging functionality become available. We appreciate the Jeep Grand Cherokee L's straightforward and contemporary dashboard design and good visibility. The fact that the interior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee L features a third row will be the most significant selling point here, and you can have both second-row buckets or a bench depending on your needs. Upper Jeep Grand Cherokee L trims have a larger infotainment display and better sound systems, but every model comes with a power-adjustable driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a digital gauge cluster.
Space is the name of the game here, and the Grand Cherokee L provides tons of it. This three-row SUV is easy to get in and out of, and those sitting in the front will enjoy generous seat adjustability and comfort, with the highest trims even offering ventilation and a massage function. In lower spec, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L features manually folding second and third-row bench seats, while higher up, the Grand Cherokee L offers electronic folding seats.
With the available second-row bench seat, the Grand Cherokee L can accommodate up to seven occupants. But a more comfortable option will be the second-row bucket seats.

The humblest of trim levels, the Laredo, is offered with black cloth seats with a quality feel and promises of longevity. Unfortunately, that is the only upholstery choice for this trim. The Altitude is offered with leather seats, but once again, the only color here is black. For the Limited, Capri leather upholstery can be had in Global Black or a combination of Global Black/Wicker Beige. The same leather can then be optioned but with the addition of perforated inserts for an even more luxurious look and feel.
Near the top of the lineup is the Overland, and this model comes with Global Black Nappa leather upholstery. The Summit has the same Nappa leather but colors like Global Black or Tupelo/Black, and hand-wrapped, quilted Palermo leather sets apart the Summit Reserve.
Every model has a leather-wrapped steering wheel but the priciest versions have nicer trim inserts. For the Summit, this is Absolute Oak wood, whereas the Summit Reserve has open-pore Waxed Walnut inserts.
The cargo space in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L changes substantially depending on whether the rear rows are upright or not. With all the seats in their upright position, the Grand Cherokee L has 17.2 cubic feet of space behind the third row. That's actually enough for most daily requirements.
If the third-row seats aren't needed, fold them down and be greeted by a solid 46.9 cubic feet of space (that's a whole 10.6 cubic feet more than what's on offer in the regular Grand Cherokee). With the second-row seats folded down, you get an expansive 84.6 cubic feet of space.
Lower trims have a standard 50/50 manual-folding third row, and pricier versions get a power-folding version of the same seat. Across the range are manual-folding "tip and slide" second-row bucket seats; again, upper trims are set apart by an electronic remote release to make folding the second row easier.
Small-item storage is also impressive: cupholders abound, and a full-length front-row floor console is standard across the range. Other storage solutions include a sizable glovebox, a center armrest with dual storage compartments, and a small storage nook in the dashboard for a set of keys and a phone. Climb up in the trim line, and the second-row seats grow armrests and a floor console with its own cupholders.
With six trim levels to choose from, Jeep has strategically allocated features across the range, with the Laredo being the first in line. The base Laredo already has an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, a tilt/telescopic steering column, electronic paddle shifters, and illuminated front cupholders.
There is also a decent spread of standard driver aids. Every model has active lane management, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning with pedestrian/cyclist detection, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and lane departure warning. The 2023 Grand Cherokee L becomes considerably more luxurious further up in the lineup, though. Most trims have heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, while both front rows can be equipped with seat ventilation. Upper trims have access to a seat-back massage function, and there is a memory system for the driver.
Also available in the lineup are features like a power steering column, a power-folding third row, a digital rearview mirror, a color head-up display, wireless charging, highway assist, drowsy driver distraction, and front parking sensors.
Laredo and Altitude trim levels feature an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, and Limited models and up are fitted with a larger 10.1-inch display. In both cases, the familiar Uconnect 5 software forms the backbone of the setup and remains and easy system to get to grips with.
All trim levels come standard with SiriusXM 360L, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth streaming, integrated voice command, Amazon Alexa compatibility, HD Radio, and Jeep Connected services. Laredo and Altitude models bump music through a six-speaker sound system. At this level, the sound system consists of six speakers.
Stepping up to the Limited bags you SiriusXM Traffic/Guardian/Travel Link, and TomTom navigation The Overland adds an Alpine nine-speaker sound system with a subwoofer. For those who love their 90s EDM, Jeep offers a 19-speaker McIntosh sound system with a 17-channel amplifier and ten-inch subwoofer.
Infotainment displays are available for rear passengers, and you can even spec a front passenger's 10.25-inch infotainment screen. This extra screen is standard for the Summit Reserve.
Behind the third row, you get 17.2 cubic feet, growing to 46.9 cubic feet behind the second row. Behind the first row, a spacious 84.6 cubes are freed up.
The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L has two seats in the front, a three-row bench or twin captain's seats in the middle, and a two-seater bench in the rear. Depending on how the second row is specified, the SUV seats either six or seven occupants.
The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L has an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat as standard, but the front passenger seat can be powered as well. Besides that, upper trims have a power-folding third-row seat.
