2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L - Now in Prince Rupert, BC
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has long been one of Canada's best selling SUVs, offering spacious comfort for five passengers backed up by a healthy amount of power under the hood. But new for 2021, the model has an added dimension of versatility with the L model, which adds an extra row to take the seating up to seven while maintaining the same desirable features as the original lineup.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is now available for test drive near you, and here are the key highlights of this attractive new model.
Impressive Power Under the Hood
There are two engine choices available with the Grand Cherokee L. The entry-level mill is 3.6L V6 design pushing out 295 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque, a satisfying amount of power that propels the Jeep with confidence and responsiveness. The output is passed to all-wheel drive as standard via an eight-speed automatic transmission, with this powertrain boasting a maximum towing capacity of 2,812kg.
Moving up a level, there's a 5.2L V8 option that makes an impressive 360 horsepower and 390lb-ft, pushing the three-row Grand Cherokee L into high-performance and off-road territory. The extra power also increases the hauling capacity to a mammoth 3,266kg, more than enough for trips into the wilderness with all your camping gear in tow.
The V8 model's power makes the Grand Cherokee L a great off-road performer from the start, but the range is taken to a new level of excellence with the Selec-Terrain traction control system, which balances torque to each wheel individually for optimum grip in tough conditions. The built-in driving modes include Sport, Rock, Snow, and Mud / Sand, making the Grand Cherokee L a highly versatile model over all terrains.
Plush Interior Comfort
But the L's off-road prowess doesn't come at the cost of interior comfort. As well as adding that essential third row, Jeep have taken the opportunity to upgrade the cabin with plush extras including quilted leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, and a lower-back massage function for both the driver and front passenger.
Infotainment and Technology
The Grand Cherokee L also includes plenty of next-generation technology. The advanced tone is set by the 10.25" digital instrument display included on every model, which sits along side an 8.4" touchscreen in the lower trims or a 10.1" model higher up in the range.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included as standard, along with up to 12 USB ports spread throughout the interior. Advanced optional extras include navigation with live weather and traffic reports, a Wi-Fi hotspot facility, and a wireless charging pad for smartphones.
Advanced Safety Tech
And lastly, the L's suite of safety tech is second to none, with highlights including forward collision warnings with pedestrian and cyclist detection, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and much more.
