    2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve Review

    After reviews of over 1000 plus vehicles, sometimes in the first 30 seconds of seeing one, you just know it’s going to be a huge hit.  Such is the case with the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L you see here.

    Grand Cherokee has had a loyal following for years, with people always asking for a 3rd row seat.  It is finally here, and Jeep did it right.

    Powertrain

    My review vehicle is the Summit Reserve, the very top-of-the-line.  It is a 4-wheel drive version and it has the 3.6-liter V6 mated to an 8-speed shiftable automatic.  Together they put out 290-horses.  My personal choice would be the 5.7 Hemi, but this 6-cylinder does fine.

    Exterior

    On the outside, a new sculpted exterior with a tapered roof optimizes aerodynamics without sacrificing inside space. The front end has been refreshed, but remains reminiscent of its Grand Cherokee heritage.

    21” optional wheels look amazing, as do the rear spoiler and integrated rear exhaust.  I love that Jeep put just the right amount of chrome from the side view.

    Interior

    While beautiful on the outside, I was taken aback with the Palermo leather seats that are bolstered with diamond pleated outer edges.

    As you sit behind the steering wheel that has controls, a large and extremely configurable digital dash cluster greets you and is pleasing to the eyes.
