Grand Cherokee L, a three-row SUV, will see a few updates for 2024. The Limited and 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Overland trims now include in-dash GPS navigation as standard, while the Jeep premium stereo system is now offered separately. Limited models come with a nine-speaker Alpine system, while Overland trims and Summit trims have a 19-speaker McIntosh stereo.
The Limited trim level is the best compromise between the features and price of the six Grand Cherokee L trims. The Limited trim level offers a number of luxury features, including a rear liftgate powered by a dynamo, high-beam automatic headlamps with remote control, ambient interior lighting, memory settings for the driver, heated seats in the second row, and leather upholstery.
The base Laredo model offers the basics, but Summit and Overland’s trims offer luxuries like quilted leather, wood trim with open pores, and digital displays. The Grand Cherokee L comes with three rows of seats. This allows for seven passengers to be accommodated by an optional bench in the second row. A pair of captains’ chairs are standard and can seat six people. You can opt for the Grand Cherokee L with a two-row seat instead if you do not need the third row. The Grand Cherokee L cabin’s upper trims are downright luxurious. Jeep includes luxury options such as massaging seats in the front, quilted upholstery, and open-pore trim.
The Grand Cherokee comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Optional features include in-dash GPS navigation, which provides real-time weather and traffic updates. Higher-end models also offer wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto connectivity. The Laredo and Limited come with six speakers as standard, but you can upgrade them to a McIntosh 19-speaker system or an Alpine nine-speaker audio setup. The 10.3-inch display for the front passenger is an optional feature, similar to those found in larger Wagoneer models. Optionally, a pair of 10.3-inch screens can be mounted behind the seats of the rear seat. They are Amazon FireTV compatible and have Wi-Fi.
Jeep offers its powerful 5.7-liter engine as an option in the top trims. It’s a nice engine, but in this size vehicle, it feels like it is overworked. Our test vehicle reached 60 mph from 0 mph at Edmunds in just 8.6 seconds. This is slower than the average for this class. The steering is also a bit light and loose, with little feedback. The automatic transmission has eight gears and the shifts are smooth. This makes for a relaxed, comfortable driving experience.
This is, of course, a Jeep. The Grand Cherokee is a 17-foot-long three-row SUV with limited capabilities. But it makes the best of them. Four-wheel drive helps you make the best of slippery conditions. It’s not a Range Rover but you can go further into the forest than other SUVs with seven passengers.
The Grand Cherokee L excels at comfort. With its long wheelbase, air suspension, and optional shock absorbers, bumps are easily absorbed by the vehicle before reaching the passengers. This is achieved without the vehicle feeling unsteady. Leather seats were also impressive in our Summit test car, offering a massage feature in the first row as well as pleasing comfort for the second and third.
However, this big SUV is unable to keep the noise in its cabin as it can with road bumps. The V6 engine was noisy and loud, with more wind noise than expected for this class.
With the Grand Cherokee L 2024, you have two engine options. While not particularly powerful, it is more than enough to propel this large Jeep. You can choose the 357 horsepower V8 engine to take it up a level. It will launch the Jeep much quicker than its standard powertrain. This extra power allows for heavier towing. Both engines are paired up with an eight-speed transmission that shifts quickly. Both engines are available with four-wheel or rear-wheel drives. V6 models have four-wheel-drive as standard.
The Grand Cherokee L, with its V6 and front-wheel-drive system, delivers 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway according to the EPA. This is average for mid-size SUVs. Four-wheel drive reduces these estimates to 18/25 city/highway mpg. The V8 models get 14/22 miles per gallon.
The Grand Cherokee L is a very stable vehicle on asphalt roads, especially for a car of this size. The Jeep is well-balanced and only exhibits a small amount of body roll-around turns. The Grand Cherokee L is a good driving vehicle, but some of its rivals have a more exciting drive. It still has nimble brakes and pleasantly weighted steering. Standard suspension smooths most bumps and the ride is more comfortable in models equipped with adaptive air suspension.
The Grand Cherokee L is a capable off-road vehicle, but it may not be the first option you would choose. Overland with the Off-Road Group Package is more capable due to skid plates, a limited-slip rear differential, and the trim-exclusive Off-Road Group. A Selec Terrain traction control system is also available with five different modes: Auto, Sport Rock, Mud/Sand, and Snow.
