It’s been almost 30 years since the Jeep® brand launched the Grand Cherokee nameplate. Since then, the Grand Cherokee has become the most-awarded SUV nameplate ever and has sold more than 7 million units around the globe. As one of the former Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) most important vehicles, the newly merged Stellantis is being careful about the launch of its fifth-generation of large SUVs.
Jeep has decided to launch the new three-row variant of the Grand Cherokee (WL) first, approximately five months ahead of the two-row model. While the Grand Cherokee L has been in production for the past several weeks, we have seen most of the new Jeeps sit on holding lots while just a few have reached dealers which haven’t been able to officially sell them yet.
The reason being is that Jeep doesn’t want to release a completely new vehicle with a number of issues at launch. Instead, they are carefully rolling out the new Grand Cherokee L to make sure that customer’s satisfactions are met, 100%
When it comes to sunroof options, the Laredo and Altitude models are available with a single-pane sunroof. On Limited models, there is the option of the CommandView dual-pane sunroof with a power sunshade (standard on Overland and Summit). The CommandView dual-pane sunroof opens the cabin up, again giving the illusion that the interior is much larger than what it truly is. It is a must-have, for those who want a bit of the Jeep open-air feeling while adventuring off-road.
