Now let's talk about its seating layout. This is the first three-row version of the Grand Cherokee. There will be a 6-seater and 7-seater option. Its second and third-row seats can be folded in a 50:50 ratio, which greatly increases its luggage area. Jeep also has a remote release boot function in it.

For passenger comfort, it has been given heated and ventilated seats in the first two rows. Its front seats can be power adjusted in 16 ways and it also has the facility of lumber and seat back massage function. Apart from this, features such as 12 USB ports, four-zone climate control with second and third row AC vents have also been provided. The Grand Cherokee L also features a dual-pane sunroof with power sunshade.

The 2021 Grand Cherokee L features some advanced safety and driver assistance features. It has FCA's Level 2 Autonomous driving technology which uses automatic lane-centring and adaptive cruise control as long as your hands-on wheel and eyes on the road are detected. Apart from this, features like a 360-degree camera, rear cross-path detection and blindspot monitoring have also been provided.

The SUV will be available in two petrol engines as before: 3.6 litre V6 and 5.7 litre V8. Its 3.6-litre petrol engine generates a power of 294 Ps and torque of 348 Nm. At the same time, its 5.7-litre engine is capable of generating power of 364 Ps and torque of 520 Nm. With both engines, it has an option of 8-speed automatic gearbox. It has cylinder shut-off technology with a V8 engine which increases the mileage. Front axle disconnection is a new feature for the 2021 Grand Cherokee which disconnects the front axle when it does not require all-wheel-drive and continues to supply power to its rear wheel. As soon as all-wheel drive is required, its system again starts supplying power to the front axle and turns it into an all-wheel-drive car. The company has also made improvements to its NVH level and driving dynamics.
