With a seven-seat configuration for the first time the Jeep Grand Cherokee L will be on
sale in Australia in mid-2022. We are told it will have premium materials and attention to
detail unlike ever before.

It will have Quadra-Trac I and Quadra-Trac II 4×4, Quadra-Lift air suspension and the
Selec-Terrain traction management system designed for the unique conditions of the
Australian outback.

“As the most refined and technologically advanced model we’ve released to date, the
arrival of the all-new Grand Cherokee L represents another landmark Jeep moment and
sets the new standard for our brand,” said Kevin Flynn, Jeep Australia Managing Director.

“The added versatility of its seven-seat layout goes hand-in-hand with an entirely new
architecture, myriad safety and assistance systems, exceptional material quality and the
latest advancements in our famed 4×4 capability, making the Grand Cherokee L a truly
premium offering in every sense of the word.”

The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L will be available in three trim variants, starting with
Night Eagle and moving up to Limited specification, which adds a host of comfort,
convenience and assistance features.

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, open-pore Waxed Walnut wood finishes, 21-inch
polished alloy wheels.

It has a bespoke 19-speaker McIntosh audio system specifically tuned to the vehicle’s
layout, providing a rich and incredibly immersive surround sound experience.

Jeep tells us the Grand Cherokee L: “delivers capacious legroom in the second row,
unrivalled third-row capacity and increased cargo carrying capacity of up to 2,395 litres.”

It has 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, while at the same time increasing efficiency and
reducing noise and weight.
It has safety and security features that assist the driver by enhancing their field of vision,
making the instruments easier to see and enabling collision-avoidance capabilities.

On-board operating speeds are now five times faster than the previous generation, due to
the latest Uconnect 5 system, most advanced Jeep connectivity platform yet.

Nm of torque.

A 4xe Plug-In-Hybrid electrified version is also scheduled to debut in 2022. Full details will
be available closer to launch.
