Jeep Grand Cherokee L

Jeep Grand Cherokee L

Jeep has worked overtime to ensure that its most affordable product here has what it takes to woo and wow prospective buyers.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the makers of the Jeep brand of SUVs, on Thursday unveiled the new generation Compass SUV, which would be launched in India next month.

Jeep welcomes the new year with a bang with the launch of an all-new model. Notably, Jeep India has recently confirmed that this generation of the Grand Cherokee will be locally assembled in India by 2022. Other systems available on the Grand Cherokee L are a digital rearview çamera feed and drowsy driver detection. Jeep says this was intentional, but to me the Grand Cherokee L looks somehow more handsome than its smaller counterpart. The seven-slot front grille and the trapezoidal wheel arches continue to be the same. The Grand Cherokee is available in Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit and topping-out with the Summit Reserve.

Unsurprisingly, FCA's 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 will power base Grand Cherokee Ls, with 290 horsepower and a 2,812-kilogram towing capacity. The former is offered with a six-speed manual and seven-speed DCT unit while the latter is mated exclusively to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

"We have now raised the bar, making the New Jeep Compass an even more compelling proposition, and one that incorporates customer feedback". Two-wheel-drive is standard while 4-wheel-drive can be optioned. The difference here is, the Jeep will be more capable once you're off-road. Dubbed the Grand Cherokee L, the stretched model brings a first for the Grand Cherokee: an extra row of seats.

The smaller vehicle will likely share the new arrival's economy-boosting technology, however, including a disconnecting front axle for reduced consumption at cruising speeds. There's also an Aero mode that drops the right height by 0.8 inches when compared to the normal setting.

As we expected, the exterior design of the Grand Cherokee L is quite a bit different than the Grand Cherokee we're familiar with.

The dashboard resembles that of the Jeep Wagoneer, but has fewer screens. The system features Over-The-Air (OTA) updates, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as Amazon Alexa integration. There is now a 10.25-inch digital display featuring 24 configurable content screens in it.

The inside of the Grand Cherokee L is radically different than the standard Grand Cherokee model.

Third row provides 37.3 inches (947 mm) of head room. It's possible that the amount of travel the second row offers could alleviate some the space crunch, but it doesn't look promising at first glance. The Grand Cherokee L appears to be the first step in fixing this issue.

The UConnect 5 infotainment is a big step forward.

Early returns for the Grand Cherokee L are promising, it passes the eye test, offers advanced technology, and has the off-road chops (on paper at least) to be a true Jeep.

Both variants contain mutations including N501Y, an adjustment in the spike protein of the virus, which is a target for vaccines. The research has yet to be peer-reviewed, but experts expressed cautious optimism at the findings.
