Is the 2021 Grand Cherokee L Off-Road Capable?
Absolutely! It starts under the hood with a standard 3.6L V6 engine that produces a satisfying 290 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque for a maximum towing capacity of 6,200lbs when equipped with a tow package. For drivers who seek more power, a 5.7L V8 will be available to kick out 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The V8 engine is rated for 7,200lbs of towing capacity when properly equipped. From there, the capability is enhanced by three available four-wheel-drive systems. First is Quadra-Trac I, which is a full-time 4WD system that operates smoothly with a single-speed transfer case and a network of sensors. The sensors detect wheel spin and the transfer case redistributes torque to the wheel with the most traction to hinder the slippage. Quadra-Trac II operates the same way while a two-speed transfer case redistributes the torque faster. Quadra-Drive II utilizes an electronic limited-slip rear differential and can predict slippage by sensing wheel spin when the vehicle leaves a stop and distribute torque to the wheel with the most traction in some cases, even before slippage occurs. Quadra-Lift Air Suspension is also available for the Grand Cherokee L. This gives the Grand Cherokee L a normal ride height of 8 inches but can lower itself either manually or automatically to increase performance and fuel economy by reducing drag. It can also rise to a towering 10.9 inches of ground clearance to tackle rough terrain. Selec-Terrain Traction Management with Auto, Sport, Snow, Rock, and Sand/Mud modes allows drivers to get the best performance no matter where their travels take them.
What Are the Trim Levels and Features of the Grand Cherokee L?
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L lineup is impressive from start to finish. The base-level Laredo has more standard features than some SUVs’ top-level trim. The Laredo is well-equipped with LED exterior lighting, 18-inch alloy wheels, second-row bench or bucket seats, Tip n’ Slide second-row seating for easy third-row access, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 10.25 frameless digital gauge cluster, an 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, Uconnect 5 – the most advanced Uconnect software yet, and more. The Limited trim takes the Laredo and adds LED foglights, a power liftgate, automatic high beams, Capri leather seating, heated front and second-row seats, power-adjustable front seats, remote start, and a heated steering wheel. The Grand Cherokee L Overland tacks on a dual-pane panoramic moonroof, front tow hooks, a hands-free power liftgate, ambient LED interior lighting, a wood-trimmed steering wheel, perforated Nappa leather upholstery, and Alpine Premium Audio. Topping off the trim level lineup is the fittingly named Summit with its Gloss Black roof, 20-inch alloy wheels, massaging front seats, quilted Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, 16-way power-adjustable front seats with memory settings, and four-zone automatic climate control.
What About Safety Features?
It may seem like Jeep only focused on comfort and capability when creating the Grand Cherokee L. But we assure you, this is not the case! The Grand Cherokee L comes with more than 110 standard and available driver aids. Standard across the entire Grand Cherokee L lineup are driver assists like a backup camera, rear parking sensors, lane departure warning with lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blindspot monitoring, full-speed forward collision mitigation, and rear cross-traffic warning. Available driver aids include a surround-view camera, a night vision camera, drowsy driver detection, hands-free park assist, a head-up display, and many more. Standard safety equipment begins with a high-strength steel frame carefully crafted to divert impact energy away from the cabin. All six or seven Grand Cherokee L passengers are protected by all-around airbag coverage, including driver and passenger knee airbags.
