Looking for your next step into adventure? We at Glendale Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram think that's the Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Full of the quality and tradition of excellence that Jeep is well known for, our team wrote up this 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L review for those drivers needing a little more information.

We look forward to our friends and neighbors in St. Louis, Chesterfield, and Kirkwood, Missouri, getting an opportunity to read through this review!

Jeep Grand Cherokee L Specs

Grand Cherokee L: Power & Performance

The excitement begins behind the wheel with a 3.6L V6 engine that's paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It can generate an output of up to 290 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque. This is a great launchpad for the adventures you'll be undertaking in the Grand Cherokee L.

A great feature is the class-exclusive Quadra-Lift® Air Suspension. This system automatically goes to work applying adaptive damping to lower the vehicle at highway speeds or raising it if need be. This helps with drag on your vehicle and driving in hazardous conditions. With a best-in-class available ground clearance, you get a generous 10.9 inches to help cruise over troublesome terrain.

For those drivers who make towing a priority, the Grand Cherokee L can be equipped with the class-exclusive available 5.7L V8 engine. When this is installed and the vehicle is properly equipped, the Grand Cherokee L can reach a maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds.

Finally, there is the ability to choose between three available 4x4 systems. The Quadra-Trac® I is able to automatically switch between 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive, depending on the circumstances. Quadra-Trac® II and Quadra-Drive® II both offer maximum 4x4 capability and power.

Grand Cherokee L: Interior Dimensions

One of the bigger points of difference between the Grand Cherokee L and its predecessor is that it has an extended length. What this means for you, the driver, is a generous amount of space for both you and your passengers or cargo. Below are the hard numbers in order of row (first/second/third):

  • Headroom: 39.8 inches / 39.9 inches / 37.3 inches
  • Legroom: 41.3 inches / 39.4 inches / 30.3 inches
  • Shoulder Room: 59.2 inches / 58 inches / 51.9 inches
  • Hip Room: 57.4 inches / 56.3 inches / 42.9 inches

You can see that you'll have plenty of space to lounge about, stretch out your legs, or even look about the cabin. With a total passenger volume of 152 cubic feet, you'll have great ease of movement and enough space for a comfortable journey.

Now, about cargo space. You'll have access to 17.2 cubic feet of cargo volume, which means you can pack all the necessities for a day trip or short weekend getaway. With three rows in place, you'll be able to take the family and friends on adventures of their own and have room for supplies.

Grand Cherokee L: Safety & Security

Safety was an important matter to the designers of the Grand Cherokee L, as key technologies were put into place to ensure you and your passengers enjoy a safe driving experience. The following are four of those key technologies you'll be encountering most often:

  • Active Lane Management: This feature measures your position while in your current lane. If it notices that you've started to drift unintentionally, it'll send alerts to the dash to get your attention to course correct. If you ignore those alerts, the feature will provide gentle steering correction to keep you on the correct course without any hazardous encounters.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection: This automatic feature keeps you aware of vehicles that are in your blind spot or crossing behind you by means of a series of radar-based sensors.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go: This feature keeps alert of the distance between you and the vehicle ahead, maintaining a pre-selected distance between the two.
  • Full-Speed Collision Warning with Active Braking and Pedestrian/Cyclist Detection:  This is an early warning system for frontal collisions. If the system senses that you could be entering into a frontal impact, it'll send warnings to your dash and speakers. If appropriate moves aren't taken, the system can engage the brakes on its own.
