Jeep Grand Cherokee L with 3-row seating revealed

The Grand Cherokee L is said to be one of the four new SUVs that Jeep has lined-up for India.

Jeep has unveiled a long wheelbase version of the Grand Cherokee called as the Grand Cherokee L.

The design of the Grand Cherokee L is inspired by the Grand Wagoneer concept. It comes with a typical 7-slat grille with sleek looking headlamps and an overall imposing front fascia. The rear features slim LED tail lamps, while the rear bumper houses twin chrome-tipped exhausts.

The Grand Cherokee L comes with 3-rows of seats in either 6 or 7-seat configuration. It comes with a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment head-unit based on the Uconnect 5 operating system. Other features include night vision camera, drowsiness detection, rearview camera, traffic sign recognition and head-up display.

In the US market, the Grand Cherokee L is offered with a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine producing 286 BHP and 350 Nm and a 5.7-litre HEMI V8 with 352 BHP and 530 Nm. There are three types of 4x4 systems on offer - Quadra-Trac-I, Quadra-Trac-II and Quadra-Drive-II. In Europe, the SUV could get a plug-in hybrid powertrain option. 

The SUV comes equipped with air-suspension which can raise the ride height by up to 60 mm or lower it by up to 46 mm. It uses active engine mounts and the front axle is bolted on to the engine. This setup is claimed to reduce cabin noise.

The Grand Cherokee L is said to be one of the four new SUVs that Jeep has lined-up for India. It is to be locally assembled using completely knocked down kits (CKD).
