Jeep Grand Cherokee L 2021 is the new seven-seater Grand Cherokee.
Concern FCA introduced the fifth generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the novelty debuted in an extended version with three rows of seats.

This version, which received an additional letter L in the name, will very soon be on the conveyor of the Mack Avenue plant in Detroit, and will enter the market in the spring of 2021.

By the end of the year, the classic five-seater version of the SUV will be ready, followed by modifications to the SRT, Trackhawk and Trailhawk.

Topping the gamut is the rechargeable Grand Cherokee 4xe hybrid, but it will likely arrive in 2022.

The priority launch of the seven-seat version, which first entered the Cherokee family, is due to the increased demand in the United States specifically for three-row crossovers and SUVs.

These vehicles account for up to 70% of sales in the mid-size SUV segment. Of course, Jeep has long paid attention to this fact and even brought the Commander model of the required format to the market in 2005, but it did not gain success and quickly disappeared from the scene.

The developers seem to have taken into account all the mistakes and are now ready to offer a new product under a well-established name.

From launch, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L will be offered in four trim levels — Limited, Overland, Summit and Summit Reserve. The starting price is predicted to be around $ 40,000 (2.95 million rubles).

Design and dimensions

The car in the new WL body got rid of the Mercedes platform and moved to the Giorgio «trolley», which earlier formed the basis for the fresh models of Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio.

The integration of the third row of seats, of course, has led to a significant increase in dimensions. So, the new 2021 Grand Cherokee L was 384 mm longer than the outgoing five-seat SUV, and its wheelbase increased by 175 mm.

The front and rear tracks are also wider (38 and 33 mm). The final dimensions of the body: 5204x1963x1816 mm, the distance between the axles — 3091 mm.

In the design of the «fifth» Grand Cherokee, there is clearly a continuity with previous generations, but here borrowings from the new Wagoneer concept are clearly visible.

Along with the classic seven-section radiator grille and trapezoidal wheel arches, the new model received a rather massive bonnet, solid bumpers, neat lighting units with thin diode strips of running lights.

Top versions sport size 21 alloy wheels and a glossy black roof with roof rails. The off-road-oriented Overland features a more aggressive body kit, tow hooks and 18 or 20-inch wheels with off-road tires.
