Eric's Autos: 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L

Eric Peters on

One more row, not much more cost.

More total cargo capacity, too.

Standard V6; available V8.

What's Not So Good

Less cargo capacity behind the third row than the two-row has behind its second row.

V8 is restricted to much-pricier Overland and Summit trims.


Automated Stop/Start has to be turned off every time you start out -- unless you want the engine to stop/start every time you go for a drive.

Under The Hood

The GC L comes standard with the same 3.6-liter V6 that's standard in the ... standard GC. It makes 293 horsepower and 260 foot-pounds of torque and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

This sends power to either the rear wheels or your pick of three different 4WD systems: Quadra Trac 1, Quadra Trac II or Quadra Drive II. Quadra Trac 1 is more like the all-wheel-drive setups that are available in most crossovers in that it does not have a two-speed transfer case and so doesn't have the down-low leverage advantage of 4WD low-range gearing.
