It appears that the all-new fifth-generation three-row 2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L (WL75) is continuing its nameplate’s legacy as the most-awarded SUV ever by being named one of the Wards’ 10-Best Interiors for 2021. The Wards editorial staff selected the 10 winners after evaluating 33 vehicles. The contenders for the award were completely new or significantly redesigned for the 2021 model year. Each vehicle was scored by the editors on ergonomics, comfort, fit-and-finish, material quality, and aesthetics.
When it comes to the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, each trim level’s interior has been carefully crafted and tailored to deliver a truly unique expression. Structural accents accentuate dimension and symmetry. The instrument panel has been proportioned and angled to create a spaciousness that is celebrated through an expressive contrast of warm authentic materials and sleek modern technologies, including 10.1-inch digital display screens that houses the latest Uconnect 5 software.
The all-new Summit Reserve package sets the benchmark for luxury in the full-size E-SUV segment. Premium hand-wrapped, quilted Palermo leather, ventilated front and second-row seats, memory and massage front seats and choice of a new Tupelo interior color add distinguishable details to the model.
“Utterly breathtaking interior,” noted Wards’ 10-Best judge Drew Winter. “A stunning mixture of rich colors and lavish materials.”
A full suite of all-new customizable interior LED lighting with daytime/nighttime settings is now standard on all models. True ambient lighting with a five-color selection (a brand first), is standard on the Overland and Summit models for a personalized sensory experience.
The most technologically equipped Jeep Grand Cherokee ever features significant next-generation innovations, including a rear-seat monitoring camera, digital rearview mirror, windshield HUD, and frameless digital cluster.
The Jeep interior design team partnered with McIntosh to deliver an advanced, high-performance audio system that envelopes vehicle occupants in high-definition sound. The shared vision between the Jeep brand and McIntosh design teams resulted in a Jeep vehicle audio system with the same level of authenticity and design quality found on McIntosh home audio products. The 950-watt, 19 custom speaker sound system accentuates the updated and premium feel of the vehicle’s new interior design.
“When it came to the interior design of the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, our team’s objective was to create one of the most exquisite and technically advanced interiors in the industry,” said Ralph Gilles, Chief Design Officer. “This all-new interior features a much more focused approach to attention to detail of materials and design as a system. Our goal was to deliver an experience for drivers and passengers that delighted the senses and perhaps set a new standard of luxury for the segment, while also setting a new internal benchmark for our future generations of Jeep brand vehicles. We are truly honored to be recognized for the collective team’s effort.”
