2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L vs 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Serving Spartanburg, SC

For the last few decades, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been the automaker’s flagship model. In addition to being the largest SUV that it offered, it was among the most luxurious and the most powerful. This changes in 2021 with the introduction of the Grand Cherokee L. The Grand Cherokee L is a three-row model that stands on its own in important ways. After you compare these impressive models more closely, which one will you select?


The 2021 Grand Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee L have the same base-level engine. This is a V6, 3.6-liter unit. While the engine is the same, its output is not. The Grand Cherokee is a smaller and lighter vehicle, so it draws 290 horsepower from the V6 engine. The Grand Cherokee L pulls 285 horsepower from its engine. Both of these models are offered with more advanced powertrains for added differentiation.


You can immediately tell that the Grand Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee L are close siblings when you view them side by side. However, the Grand Cherokee L’s larger dimensions through the length, width, and height are obvious as well. Both vehicles have a rectangular, stretched grille that connects with geometric headlights. They also both have a boxy profile with relatively smooth surfaces. The Grand Cherokee stands apart with subtle differences. For example, its nose and grille are slightly rounded, and it has softer accents throughout the sides and front. The Grand Cherokee L has sharper corners throughout the headlights and fog lights.


In their cabins, size plays a major role in differentiation. The third row of seats in the Grand Cherokee L changes the landscape and adds more functionality. Both models come with equipment like leather seats, a navigation system, a sunroof, smart device integration, a multi-zone auto climate control system, a digital driver’s display screen, a heated steering wheel, and more.
