2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L - Front View Profile

For years, Jeep has led the American automotive industry with capable off-road-ready SUVs for adventurous drivers. However, buyers who needed seats for more than five passengers haven’t been able to find an option in Jeep’s lineup for some time.

The release of the Jeep Grand Cherokee L changed that, providing the appeal of the upscale SUV with a third row of seating that takes the seating capacity to seven. Take a closer look at this sleek and stylish model that can handle all types of terrain.

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L fits into the midsize SUV segment, offering a roomier third row than most of its competitors.

Even adults can fit in the back row, and the optional second-row captain’s chairs make it easier to get back there. The starting MSRP for this vehicle is $38,720. Jeep offers this SUV in six trim levels that range in price.

Engine Specs & MPG

All six trim levels come standard with the same powertrain, which includes a 3.6-liter V-6 engine. It produces 290 horsepower and 257 pound-feet of torque and pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

If that’s not enough power for you, the upper three trim levels are available with an optional 5.7-liter V-8 engine rated at 357 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. In order to include that engine, the SUV must include Jeep’s four-wheel-drive system, which only comes standard on the top trim. The V-8 works with the same eight-speed automatic transmission.

When equipped with the base V-6 engine, a front-wheel-drive Grand Cherokee L returns an estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, or 22 mpg combined. A four-wheel-drive model’s estimates come in just slightly lower at 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway or 21 mpg combined. With the V-8 engine, the EPA fuel economy estimates come in at 14 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.

Jeep offers several versions of its four-wheel-drive system, which it bundles into packages named Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Drive II. The Quadra-Trac I package includes four-wheel drive with a single-speed transfer case, while Quadra-Trac II includes a two-speed transfer case that offers low-range gearing to boost traction and neutral mode capability. The Quadra-Drive II system is similar to Quadra-Trac II but includes a fully automatic high-range four-wheel-drive system.

Towing Capacity

The Grand Cherokee L can also tow a substantial load, putting it ahead of most of its competitors in this area. When equipped with the standard V-6 engine and the right equipment, this SUV can tow up to 6,200 pounds. Upgrading to the V-8 engine increases the towing capacity to 7,200 pounds.

By adding a three-row SUV to its lineup, Jeep can reach a wider audience, including buyers with larger families or who need additional seating to transport passengers. The Grand Cherokee L doesn’t skimp when it comes to off-road capabilities or performance, but it can be equipped with appealing comfort and tech options that put it in line with some of the luxury brands.
