2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee L: Changes, News, & Price – Jeep Grand Cherokee has been a part of our automotive history for decades, whether it’s a car, ute, or SUV. Jeep introduced the three-row version of its Grand Cherokee more than 30 years ago. It took Jeep five generations to compete with newer competitors that offered more comfort and space. Grand Cherokee L measures about one foot longer than standard models, allowing for an extra row of seats and up to seven people, which is more than any Jeep except the Wagoneer.
Jeep is unlikely to introduce any major changes in 2024. The Grand Cherokee L debuted alongside the 5th-generation Grand Cherokee only a few short years earlier. We wouldn’t exclude the possibility of transferring the rugged Trailhawk and 4xe hybrid plug-in model from the Grand Cherokee standard lineup to the Grand Cherokee L.
2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee L faces stiff competition from other three-row SUVs. Edmunds has a few favorites, including the twins Kia Telluride/Hyundai Palisade, the newly redesigned Honda Pilot as well as the large Volkswagen Atlas. Grand Cherokee L has better off-road capabilities than rivals but falls short in terms of on-road comfort and interior layout. The two-row Grand Cherokee may be one of the best two-rows on the market, but the Grand Cherokee L falls short.
We don’t think that the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee will bring any other significant changes. Expect to see the same layout that was introduced just a few months ago. This new generation, which is built on Giorgio’s platform, is more agile and lighter than its predecessor. Jeep engineers were able to maintain the off-road capability at the previous level. The Quadra Trac II system and adaptive air suspension can be added to the Grande Cherokee, making it one of the most capable off-roaders among midsize SUVs.
The Grand Cherokee has evolved in terms of its design. It’s still the same seven-slot design but in a more bold and prominent version. We don’t anticipate any significant changes for next year, as the vehicle appears more muscular. We won’t rule out minor changes like new colors or special editions.
The cabin should not undergo any major changes, just like the exterior. The interior of this SUV is very luxurious. This SUV combines fine aesthetics, advanced technology, and high-quality materials. The cabin is more luxurious than most competitors thanks to this combination.
It is well-built and offers plenty of room. The two rows of seats are spacious and can easily accommodate an adult. The front seats are very supportive and massive, with a good driving position. There is a three-row stretched version for those looking to add more seats.
This is not the best SUV for cargo space. Comparable SUVs like the Toyota Highlander or Chevy Traverse have more space. In 2024, the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers nearly 38 cubic feet behind the 2nd row of seats and approximately 70 cubic feet for the entire cargo space.
It won’t surprise us if there are new features available and standard. Even if this happens, there won’t be anything new. The majority of features should be the same, including a 10.25″ digital instrument panel, an 8.4″ touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto wireless, USB ports and Bluetooth, six speakers, USB and Bluetooth connections, and dual-zone automatic climate control with push button start.
There are a number of available options, including a 10.1″ touchscreen, a 10.25″ touchscreen on the passenger side, wireless charging for devices, an Alpine 9-speaker audio system, or a McIntosh 19-speaker audio system. Other upgrades include HD Radio, Satellite Radio, and a Rear Seat Entertainment System. On the list of available options are also a quad-zone climate control system, dual-paned panoramic sunroofs, and remote starting. Some of these options could be included in the standard features.
Jeep unveiled its 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the new generation, this week. It will be available in three-row “L” form with seven seats, and a five-seat two-row version in two years.
Jeep enthusiasts have one burning question: When will Jeep’s high-performance SRT, Trackhawk, and Trackback versions be unveiled, and how will they appear?
This is our version of the fire-breathing, supercharged latter, using the newly-unveiled Grand Cherokee L, but in sportier Overland styling.
The arches are adorned with wide wheel-arch flares and black alloy wheels covered in Pirelli rubber. Brembo high-performance brakes were also borrowed. They all come from the Trackhawk of the current generation.
The next-generation Trackhawk is lower than the Grand Cherokee L. It also features larger air intakes and vents under the grille, as seen on the SRT/Trackhawk, black trim, and lower LED running lights.
The performance SUV will be powered by a version of the 6.2 liters V8 supercharged petrol engine, which is used in the Trackhawk, as well as a variety of FCA models (including the Durango, Charger, and SRT Hellcat trifecta, along with the Ram 1500 TRX).
It produces 522kW in power and 868Nm torque for the current Australian Trackhawks. A power increase is likely to be on the cards with any new generation model. This could match the Dodge Challenger Hellcat’s 535kW power output and its 889Nm torque, or even the Challenger Redeye full-fat, but sub-Demon, which has 594kW power and 959Nm torque.
The extra weight of the L-model, which is longer and built for a third seat, would cancel out any gains in power.
This is assuming that the Grand Cherokee L Trackhawk ever makes it to the market. A seven-seater supercharged Jeep could cannibalize sales of Fiat Chrysler’s other supercharged seven-seater SUV, the Dodge Durango Hellcat.
It is likely that the Trackhawk version will be the five-seat Grand Cherokee of the future generation, due for production to begin in late 2021. However, it won’t arrive in Australia before 2022.
Jeep is yet to confirm if the Trackhawk will be available in either a five-seat or seven-seat version of its new SUV. However, the supercharged variant would likely arrive (although it has not been confirmed) after both the five-seat regular model and the 6.4-liter naturally aspirated SRT.
A timeline like this would put the reveal of the top-of-the-line model to around the middle decade. That is 2023-2024. Base models are expected to cost around 41.000 US dollars.
