2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L review: Our expert's take

By Jane Ulitskaya

The three-row Jeep Grand Cherokee L was introduced for 2021 to give families more passenger space than the standard two-row Grand Cherokee, but with a more affordable price tag than the all-new, super-sized Grand Wagoneer. The Grand Cherokee L offers seating for up to seven and a standard V-6 or optional V-8 engine with rear- or four-wheel drive.

Although the Grand Cherokee L is a standalone model, it bears a family resemblance to the redesigned 2022 Grand Cherokee, sharing many styling elements with its two-row sibling. For 2022, Jeep says the Grand Cherokee L will also share the new Grand Cherokee’s tech-packed cabin, with a plethora of screens to keep passengers informed, connected and entertained — or just quiet. In addition to upgraded technology, the 2022 Grand Cherokee L will offer new exterior appearance packages and, eventually, hands-free lane centering on select trims.

More Screen Time

The Grand Cherokee L’s front passenger will get an available 10.25-inch touchscreen in the dashboard ahead of them that makes it easier to stay connected to the trip, monitor backseat entertainment or, for all you introverts, avoid conversations with the driver. Standard on Summit Reserve models and available on the Limited, Overland and Summit, the screen displays co-pilot assistance with navigation, camera viewing and entertainment features. Jeep says the passenger screen will be available later in 2022.

To make family road trips more bearable — or even enjoyable at all — the 2022 Grand Cherokee L gains an available rear-seat entertainment system. The dual 10.1-inch displays have built-in Amazon Fire TV that can stream videos through the vehicle’s Wi-Fi or a mobile hot spot, similar to an offering in the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Passengers can also watch downloaded content without a connection through the system’s built-in storage.  The dual screens can display individual content or a mirror view, and grown ups stay in control of the rear-seat entertainment through the new front passenger screen.

New Exterior Packages

The Grand Cherokee L also gains two appearance packages for 2022: Limited Black and Summit High Altitude. Both packages add gloss-black aluminum wheels (20 inches for the Limited and 21 inches for the Summit), distinct accents and badging, roof rails and a unique grille design. Grand Cherokee L shoppers will have three new exterior colors to choose from on select trims: Ember, Hydro Blue and Midnight Sky.

Hands-Free Steering

The current Grand Cherokee L is packed with safety and driver-assist features, including  Active Driving Assist, a system that combines adaptive cruise control with hands-on lane centering. A spokesperson for Jeep confirmed that an upgrade to hands-free lane centering will be available for the Overland and Summit with late availability for 2022. The more advanced system, called Hands-free Active Driving Assist, allows for hands-free lane centering at all speeds on designated roadways. That reads similar to the core capabilities of advanced systems offered by BMW, Ford, GM, Toyota and, soon, Nissan. All of them employ devices to monitor the driver and ensure they’re paying attention to take back over at any time, a protocol that’s all but certain with Jeep’s Hands-free Active Driving Assist. The system will also automatically slow the vehicle on tight curves and resume control once the driver verifies that he or she is paying attention.

Trims and Pricing

The Jeep Grand Cherokee L is currently available in six trims: Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Overland, Summit and Summit Reserve; a 4xe plug-in hybrid model will be available in early 2022. Pricing for the 2022 Grand Cherokee L has not been revealed, but the price of admission for the 2021 model is $39,375 for the base Laredo (all prices include a destination fee of $1,795). Standard features for the Laredo include adaptive cruise control and a blind spot warning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and Jeep’s latest Uconnect 5 multimedia system.

The starting price for the range-topping 2021 Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve climbs to $63,950. The most premium model comes exclusively with 4WD and offers upgrades like quilted leather, open-pore wood trim, ventilated second-row seats, 21-inch wheels and a premium sound system.

Get the v8 or pass

I love the off-road capabilities of my GC L overland. Love the look and features. With that being said, I am highly disappointed in the performance and under powering of the v6. This Jeep is rated to tow 6,200lbs with the v6. That is probably true if you are going downhill. My boat weighs 3,500 plus 500 of gear so a total of 4,000lbs. Acceleration while towing is redlining every time, going up a hill will put me at a max of 50mph and struggling. This all equates to about 11mpgs towing my 4K boat and a lot of shifting. I am sure with the v8 it would be a breeze. I cannot recommend this vehicle if it is the v6 version because even when not towing it sucks.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland

Purchased a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Overland model. Has every option but the 5.8L engine, tow package and second row displays (entertainment, etc). There is so much I like about this Jeep and only one thing that is niggling (well maybe two). Fit,Finish,Quality is hard to surpass! Especially for the price ($69K). My son and daughter in-law drive Audi and BMW SUVs and they don't have all the options I have and they paid more. The Overland is a good value as you get standard some almost all the options. I LOVE the air suspension and how it will lift the body up depending on what mode you are in (and you can set manually the height) and then lowers to enable you to enter/exit the Jeep. I LOVE the "thermo vision". You can see up to 238 feet (according to the Jeep) and anything giving off heat will display on your driver console. Heavy rain, night driving, driving in fog, etc is no issue as you can see what is ahead of you if you can't see it through the windshield. All cars should have this. I LOVE the Heads Up display (again something that should be standard on all cars). I LOVE the front passenger display that is above the glove box. I especially love the NAV option where my wife can be looking at the same NAV I am seeing on the driver console and/or 10.5" center display. She can look for places (gas stations, places to eat, etc) and then send it to my NAV display with the routing. COOL! What I am not enamored with is the MPG. Averaging 23 MPG (town/highway/freeway traveling), BUT knew this going into getting the "L" with the V6 engine. THIS IS A LARGE Jeep! But, if I could not afford the gas prices (even now) I wouldn't bought it to begin with so....the other thing (which will be covered by warranty when I take it in for the first oil change) is that a couple of "buttons" on the center console display act "wonky" sometimes...like hit the Media button and nothing, hit is again and it says "Media button selected" and then hit it again to bring up the Media display (finally). It is the on "button" on the center console 10.5" display that acts up like this....oh, the Assist button in the overhead is not working right. Push it, center console display brings up the Roadside Assistant, Vehicle Check and another one I forget right now...you are suppose to select one of them and it calls a person up (sort of like ONSTAR but Jeep calls it Jeep Assist). Doesn't work (the SOS button does...don't ask me how I know.....). HOWEVER, you can select the Jeep Assist button on your 10.5" display and it brings up the Jeep Assist buttons and they work (will dial). Jeep Technical Service doesn't know why so will be a dealer resolution. There is so much more I can talk about on this Jeep. I love the ride! Can't say how much better than our 2016 Jeep Cherokee we had (traded it in). Jeep could get away with calling it a Jeep Gran Comfort vice Grand Cherokee. You have to go see one before you go look at BMW, AUDI, CADILLAC, TOYOTO, etc. Might change. your mind about what a Jeep can be (plus you get excellent off road mud/sand/snow/rock options with the 4x4.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L A Grand Winner

Purchased a 2022 Summit Reserve L on March 2, 2022. The vehicle is a stunning piece of mastery. The V-8 is powerful, the ride is so comfortable and the front massage seats are wonderful on long drives. The quality of the interior is outstanding. At a price of $ 72,000, this vehicle is $ 17,000 less than the BMW X7 fitted with a V-6 no less. The dependability of this Jeep is higher that Mercedes Benz GLS and $ 21,000 less in price. Go for the top of the line Summit Reserve if you can afford it, though I test drove the Limited and found the results to be the same as the Summit Reserve...Jeep definitely has a winner here.
