Including Amazon Fire TV in the back seats.
Jeep took an interesting strategy with its fifth-generation Grand Cherokee, opting to reveal a new three-row L model before the traditional two-row version. The GCL debuted at the start of the year as a 2021 model while the standard GC arrived later as a 2022 model with a few notable improvements. Now, the two models have officially caught up with each other. The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L was just announced, sporting several cool upgrades from the two-row model.
2022 model year changes include new Limited Black and Summit High Altitude packages, which add unique exterior accents and wheel designs. Customers get three new color choices for 2022, including Ember, Hydro Blue, and Midnight Sky.
Jeep's biggest upgrades for 2022 come in the dash, where the Grand Cherokee L now includes up to 50 inches of total available digital screen space. Unlike the 2021 model, the 2022 GCL is available with a 10.25-inch front passenger interactive display that first debuted in the Grand Wagoneer. This screen is mounted on the passenger-side dashboard and offers co-pilot navigation, camera viewing, and visual entertainment. The feature is available on Limited, Overland, and Summit models or standard on the Summit Reserve.
In addition to the passenger screen, buyers can add two 10.1-inch high-definition entertainment displays in the second row. These screens include Amazon Fire TV, meaning they can stream video such as Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and more from the car's built-in Wi-Fi hotspot or mobile device hotspot.
Sadly, there are no changes under the hood, where the Grand Cherokee L continues to use either a 3.6-liter V6 or 5.7-liter V8. Jeep has yet to announced a plug-in hybrid 4xe version like we've seen on the two-row model. Likewise, the GCL doesn't get the two-row model's rugged Trailhawk trim level. Pricing for the Grand Cherokee L Laredo starts at $39,285, making it $1,500 more expensive than the two-row model across the board. The top-range Summit Reserve trim starts at $65,260, and goes up from there with options.
