For the first time ever, Jeep is set to offer seven-seats in its Grand Cherokee SUV when the new model arrives in mid-2022, with the additional seating to be available in its super luxury L-spec. The new variants will deliver exceptional levels of luxury, comfort, space and functionality.
The new Jeep Grand Cherokee L substantially raises the bar in terms of on-road composure and dynamics compared to the previous generation and will be available with Quadra-Trac I and Quadra-Trac II 4×4 setups.
Quadra-Lift air suspension and Selec-Terrain traction management will also feature, with the new model available in three amply equipped trim variants, starting with Night Eagle and moving up to Limited specification.
The flagship Summit Reserve rounds out the configurations and signifies the absolute pinnacle of luxury for the Jeep Grand Cherokee range.
Appointed with a suite of equipment as standard, visual and aural highlights on this leading example include ventilated, 12-way adjustable front seats with memory and massage function that are hand-wrapped in quilted Palermo leather.
You’ll also find open-pore Waxed Walnut wood finishes, 21-inch polished alloy wheels and a bespoke 19-speaker McIntosh audio system specifically tuned to the vehicle’s layout, providing a rich and incredibly immersive surround sound experience.
Designed with exemplary comfort for up to seven passengers, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L range delivers capacious legroom in the second row, unrivalled third-row capacity and increased cargo carrying capacity of up to 2,395 litres.
Underneath the sleek, contemporary and aerodynamically optimised exterior is a new unibody construction which increases rigidity by using lightweight, high-strength aluminium and steel, and incorporates a number of enhancements to improve the ride quality.
Handling and comfort are also given a boost, while at the same time increasing efficiency and reducing noise and weight. It’s fully equipped with an array of advanced safety and security features that assist the driver too.
The latest Uconnect 5 system – the most advanced Jeep connectivity platform yet is also included, and each variant is powered exclusively by the acclaimed 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 petrol engine, producing 210kW and 344Nm of torque. It’s paired to an 8-speed auto.
The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Night Eagle will be priced from $82,250, with the Limited coming in at $87,950 and the Summit Reserve at $115,450. All prices are plus on-roads.
Additionally, the Jeep Grand Cherokee 5-seater, featuring a 4xe Plug-In Hybrid for the first time, is also scheduled to debut in 2022. Full details will be available closer to launch. To read the full story, visit Exhaust Notes Australia.
