Since making its debut last summer, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee L (WL75) has become an important part of the Grand Cherokee lineup. Offering Grand Cherokee owners to ability to carry 6 or 7 passengers proved to be a game-changer for the nameplate and has now opened up the Grand Cherokee to many people who wouldn’t have considered the vehicle before.
Two years ago, we posted an article that the Grand Cherokee (WK2) contributed a large amount of its success to the amount of dark-themed packages that were available on various trims in the lineup. According to Jeep, the “dark appearance packages” accounted for 40% of the brand’s sales on the Grand Cherokee in 2019.
As the Grand Cherokee L launched in June, only one dark appearance appeared in the lineup. The Grand Cherokee L Altitude. Based on the entry-level Laredo, the Altitude added Gloss Black appearance details like 20-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels, Gloss Black exterior accents and badging, roof rails, and a unique seven-slot grille. Altitude also added a number of convenience features over the standard Laredo, like remote start, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, wireless charging pad, adjustable height liftgate, rain-sensing wipers, a 115-volt power outlet, and third-row USB ports.
But that wasn’t enough for some Grand Cherokee buyers. Some customers wanted even more luxurious options.
In December, MoparInsiders.com broke the news that the Jeep brand was planning to launch another dark-appearance package with the Grand Cherokee L Limited Black, thanks to our well-placed dealer connections. With the Limited being the best-selling trim level in the Grand Cherokee lineup, it only made sense for Jeep to give customers what they wanted.
So earlier today, at the Chicago Auto Show, Jeep officially unveiled the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Limited Black to the media.
The Limited Black (ALC) package is currently only available for the Grand Cherokee L (sorry Grand Cherokee WL74 fans) and adds the same Gloss Black accents from the Altitude to the Limited models. This means that the Limited Black can now give customers dark-appearance features but with premium features like LED fog lamps, Capri leather seats, 8-way power driver seat with memory, 4-way driver/front-passenger lumbar adjuster with memory, and Selec-Terrain traction management system, which offers five available terrain modes (Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, Mud/Sand) on 4×4 models.
“The first ever three-row Grand Cherokee answered the growing needs of our Jeep SUV customers who asked for more space, functionality and legendary 4×4 capability,” said Jim Morrison, Senior Vice President and Head of Jeep Brand North America. “It’s important for us to listen to our customer base and that includes unique options they want, and the new Limited Black Package gives the 2022 Grand Cherokee L a sleek, customized look that further distinguishes it from anything else on the road.”
The package has a U.S. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $1,695. For more details about ordering a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Limited Black, you can visit your local Jeep dealer.
