We know what the new three-row Grand Cherokee L, which functionally replaces the Dodge Durango (though that’s sticking around at least for this year), will cost—in the USA and in Canada.
The first three-row Grand Cherokee L Laredo will start at $36,995 plus $1,695 destination—$38,690 all together; in Canada, that price is $54,490 including destination.
The price may seem a little high until one realizes that the Laredo includes adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitors, LED headlights, leather-wrapped steering wheel, the “tip and slide” second row seats, UConnect 5, and a 10 ¼ inch telematics screen with customizable menus. That screen, a jump over the FCA 8.4 inch standard, is the only one available on any Grand Cherokee L; and it includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Laredo is quite well equipped, even without the Jeep Wave program that includes same-day vehicle rentals, roadside assistance, and such.
The Limited brings the price up to $45,690, including destination; that adds Capri leather, heated steering wheel, heated seats for the first and second row, remote start, and a power liftgate with adjustable height.
The Overland adds Nappa leather, premium navigation, ventilated front seats, ambient LED lighting with a choice of five colors, length-adjustable front seat cushions, hands-free power liftgate, and dual-pane sunroof; 4×4 versions get Quadra-Trac II. All that comes in at $54,690.
The Summit, at $58,690, would seem to be at the top, with quilted Nappa leather, oak and leather steering wheel, 16-way adjustable front row memory seats with massage, LED fogs, active driving assist, drowsy driver detection, and 360° view. But there is one more, the Summit Reserve, for an extra $5,000, that adds Palermo leather, open-pore walnut wood, ventilated second row seats, 21-inch wheels, and a 950-watt, 19-speaker McIntosh audio setup.
Various forms of the L include head-up displays, digital rear view mirrors, and rear seat monitor cameras.
The L will start showing up in the second quarter of 2021; the two-row Grand Cherokee, which will include a 4xe hybrid, will debut in 2021.
