The new Jeep Grand Cherokee L has finally launched in South Africa. See pricing below…

Grand Cherokee

Employed across the three-strong local line-up is Jeep’s 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine. The petrol unit produces 210 kW and 344 Nm of torque. All models feature four-wheel-drive drivetrains. 

Speaking of the 4×4 systems, Jeep says the box-fresh Grand Cherokee L offers “legendary” off-road capability, courtesy of three 4×4 set-ups. These are Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II. The latter set-up incorporates a rear electronic limited-slip differential. All three systems feature an active transfer case. Five on- and off-road terrain settings are available — Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow and Mud/Sand. 

The new (5 204 mm-long) Grand Cherokee L has a ground clearance of 215 mm. However, this can be lifted to 276 mm in models fitted with adaptive air suspension. The approach, break-over and departure angles are 20.6 (28.2), 21.5 (to 23.5) and 18.2 (to 22.6) degrees, respectively.

Among other items, the Limited’s cabin has an 8.4-inch touch-enabled infotainment display and 10.25-inch digital instruments. The Overland and Summit Reserve boasts a trio of screens. These include the same 10.25-inch digital instrument binnacle, an upgraded (10.1-inch) infotainment touchscreen and a 10.25-inch passenger display on the left of the dashboard. A head-up display is also present in the Overland and Summit Reserve. Seven seats are standard. However, a six-seat configuration is also available on the top-spec model. 

As standard, all models ship with a five-year/100 000 km service plan and warranty of similar duration and 120 000 km. Here’s how much it costs…
