With the all-new WL Jeep Grand Cherokee L three-row SUV slated to hit dealer showrooms later this year, the automaker has finally decided to share pricing information with all of us. As one might expect now that the SUV features a third row, prices have indeed shot up a bit compared to the outgoing two-row variant. Here is how it all breaks down.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee L is available in six trim levels: Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Overland, Summit, and Summit Reserve. The base Laredo trim will carry a base price of $36,995, excluding $1,695 in destination charges owed to the automaker. For comparison, a WK Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo started at $33,865. That said, this new SUV is a massive step on from its predecessor, and carries quite a few nice features even in base spec. That money gets you a 2WD SUV powered by a 3.6-liter V6, which is mated to a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Output is rated at 290 horsepower and 257 ft-lb of torque. Should you want to step up to 4×4, it will cost $2,000 on all trim levels except the 4×4-only Summit Reserve.
If that V6 engine doesn’t sound all that appealing to you, you’ll need to step up to an Overland, Summit, or Summit Reserve trim level to get the optional 5.7L V8. Output is 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque with the big motor, however buyers are required to spec 4×4 to go along with the extra cylinders. This brings the total cost of the engine option up to $3,295 across all trim levels. Not a huge step up in terms of price for a massive increase in performance.
Sitting atop the WL Jeep Grand Cherokee L lineup is the aforementioned Summit Reserve model. We’ve previously detailed all of the features buyers can expect with this luxury offering, such as quilted Palermo leather seats with massage features up front, and ventilation for the front two rows. The SUV also features open-pore waxed walnut wood accents, and a 19-speaker McIntosh stereo among other features. As the most luxurious vehicle in Jeep’s current lineup, this thing doesn’t come cheap however. The V6-equipped model starts at $61,995, while the V8 carries an MSRP of $65,290. That price puts in right in line with GMC’s Yukon Denali, which starts at $66,900.
In order to make it easier to understand how pricing breaks down for all of the WL Jeep Grand Cherokee L trim levels, we’ve included a complete pricing chart down below. Should this particular model appear a bit too pricey for your taste, it is important to remember that the two-row variant of the SUV has yet to be unveiled. It will certainly carry a cheaper starting price than the three-row model, but we don’t expect massive savings. We estimate that the SUV will carry an MSRP in between the outgoing two-row model and this new three-row offering. That is a fair tradeoff, considering how much new tech Stellantis has shoved into the WL Grand Cherokee lineup.
