This week, we’re driving the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Limited, the “L” standing for “lengthened” or “extended” and featuring the first three-row, 7-passenger Cherokee in the trim’s history. Additionally, the L model features a newly designed exterior with a tapered roof that enhances overall aerodynamics. The front end is a new design yet still retains its Grand Cherokee heritage looks. Completing the motif is a full suite of premium LED lighting, fore and aft.

Keeping in step with Jeep’s 4x4 lineage, Grand Cherokee L offers three available 4x4 systems and a host of capability features designed for off-road trails, city streets and everything in between. As for dimensions, the extended L body is a full 7-inches longer than the 5-passenger Grand Cherokee, unlike other “stretched” version SUVs that ride on a same length wheelbase. Bottom line? This new “L” really is a stretched version, wheelbase and all, not just a stretched body.
