Driving a Jeep is a vibe all to itself. It means adventure, freedom, and the ability to go wherever and whenever you want. It’s not necessarily something you would equate with strollers and car seats—that is, until you test-drive the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L and realize the “family car” has become cooler than it’s ever been.
This three-row midsize SUV lets you have the best of both worlds with a sense of adventure and plenty of room for the people you love the most—as well as their things. With 11.4 inches added to the typical Grand Cherokee base, the Grand Cherokee L means you don’t have to settle for a vehicle with a sliding side door as your family grows.
Now in its third year, the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L continues to encourage families to think outside the minivan box and consider something better. You’ll be hooked once you slide inside the premium interior and glide down the road thanks to the fine-tuned eight-speed automatic 850RE transmission and standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine. The L version of the Grand Cherokee is available across all trims, from the Laredo to the Summit Reserve. Continue reading to learn more about what each one has to offer.
Features for the Family
When you first started driving, you might have focused on how quickly your vehicle could get from one stop sign to the next or how great your playlist sounded on the sound system. While those things might still be important, other factors like safety features and convenience take priority when you have a family. Jeep understands that shift but does better by ensuring you don’t overlook the cool factor just because you’re interested in Blind Spot Monitoring.
Safety takes on a whole new meaning when you are responsible for the well-being of others. Suddenly, it matters if your vehicle has a reliable air-bag system or electronic stability control. All six 2023 Jeep Cherokee L models include the following standard safety and security features: 118 mph Maximum Speed Calibration, Electronic Stability Control, Four-Wheel Traction Control, Hill Start Assist, LED Low Beam Daytime Running Lamps, Security Alarm, and Trailer Sway Damping. Other safety and security features that put a capital ‘C’ in “cool” include…
Active Lane-Management System: No matter how focused you are, you may sway to the left or right of your lane, causing this system to activate. With a gentle reminder, you can get back on track and ensure your and your passengers’ safety. This system is standard in the Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Overland, Summit, and Summit Reserve.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go: When this system is activated, it helps you monitor changes in the traffic flow by maintaining a set distance between you and the next car. It is standard on all models of the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L.
Blind Spot and Cross-Path Detection: Blind spot detection is crucial to your driving safety. No matter how skilled you are at driving with the assistance of your mirrors, every vehicle has blind spots that can trip you up. Jeep offers this critical safety system standard across all six L models.
Drowsy Driver Detection: After a long road trip or too many hours at the office, the ability to fully focus while driving might be impaired. This standard feature on the Summit and Summit Reserve tracks vehicle movement and your interaction in order to spot moments when your focus might wane. The system sends you visual and audio alerts to get you back on track.
Full-Speed Forward-Collision Warning: This system is standard on all L models to help you monitor the flow of traffic and potentially avoid front-end collisions. Full-Speed Forward-Collision Warning senses the road ahead of you and alerts you to potential danger. If you aren’t able to respond in time, the system will automatically apply the brakes.
Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist: Have you ever wished for a system that could sense if a parking spot was big enough for you and then help you navigate into that spot? You get your wish with this system that is standard on the Summit and Summit Reserve.
ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera: This system, standard on the Laredo, Altitude, Limited, and Overland, helps you navigate the tightest parking spots with ease.
Surround View Camera System: This 360-degree camera gives you a full view of your vehicle’s surrounding area. This simulated overhead vantage is displayed on the infotainment center for easy viewing. Not only that, but you also get an aerial view to assist you with navigating. You can find this feature standard on the Summit and Summit Reserve.
