The extra row of seats will cost you a few grand.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a little late to the game adding a three-row version, even more curious because it has two new three-rows in the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, yet here we are. We know most of the specs already, but Jeep has now revealed the price of the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, and it starts at $36,995 plus $1,695 in destination for a total of $38,690. For reference, the base non-L Grand Cherokee Laredo starts at about $35K.
For that, buyers get adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring, LED exterior lights, a leather steering wheel with audio controls, new "tip and slide" second-row seats, a 10.25-inch frameless touchscreen and Uconnect 5, Jeep's latest infotainment system.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee L Limited trim comes next with a starting price of $45,690 after destination. That adds to the Laredo trim with Capri leather seats, heated steering wheel, standard heated seats in the first two rows, remote start and a new power liftgate with adjustable height. These are prices for two-wheel drive models with V6s. Add $2,000 for 4WD and $3,295 for the V8 on Overland and Summit models.
Overland is next on the trim walk, starting at $54,690 for the 4x2 and $56,690 for the 4x4. That comes with the Jeep Quadra-Trac II system, as well as the Overland appearance package with leather seats and door panels, ventilated front seats, navigation, ambient lighting, new length-adjustable front-row cushions, hands-free foot-activated power liftgate and dual-pane sunroof.
Jeep calls the Summit trim, "the peak of capability and luxury," though there's a more expensive model right above it. The lower-tier Summit comes with premium quilted leather seats, a wood and leather-wrapped wheel, 16-way adjustable front-row seats with seat back massage and Summit-specific LED fog lamps for $58,690. Active Driving Assist, drowsy driver detection and a 360-degree surround view camera are also standard.
And finally there's Summit Reserve, which "sets the benchmark for luxury" with quilted Palermo leather, open-pore Waxed Walnut wood, ventilated second-row seats, 21-inch wheels and standard premium amenities, including a premium 950-watt, 19-speaker McIntosh audio sound system for $63,690.
Like the regular Grand Cherokee, the L comes with either a V6 or V8 making either 293 hp and 260 lb-ft or 357 hp and 390 lb-ft. No Trackawk trim yet. An eight-speed automatic divvies power and the V8 can max tow 7,200 pounds.
Extra tech bits include Active Driving Assistant, which is a Level 2 autonomous system that will keep you centered and following the speed limit as long as your hands are on the wheel. Overland and Summit models offer night vision up to 219 yards (200 meters) away. Add to that rear-seat monitoring camera, digital rearview mirror, full-color windshield HUD, and a front-row wireless charging pad for devices, and you have yourself a nice, tech-heavy package.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L will be built at the Mack Assembly Plant in Detroit and it should be arriving at dealerships this month.
