It was just about 30 years ago, that the Jeep® brand introduced the first-generation Grand Cherokee (WL). The nameplate would begin an unrivaled legacy as the most awarded SUV in history. As the American adventure brand has unveiled a trio of new models including the electrified 4xe and three-row “L”. Now Jeep Mexico is ready to announce its plans to bring the newest generation of Grand Cherokee to the Mexican market.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee L arrives in Mexico with an unrivaled combination of 4×4 capabilities, on-road refinement, interior and exterior luxury, and comprehensive safety and technology features. Only offered in the ultra-premium Summit Reserve trim, the Grand Cherokee L aims to be the most luxurious Grand Cherokee model ever.
The new Summit Reserve Package sets the benchmark for luxury in the full-size 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. Also unique to the Summit Reserve Package is genuine open-pore Waxed Walnut wood and premium, wrapped, suede-like fabric on the A-pillars and headliner. For the first time on Grand Cherokee, 21-inch wheels come standard with the Summit Reserve Package.
Under the hood of the Mexican-spec 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve 4×4 is the Mexican-built 5.7-liter HEMI V8 rated at 357 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. The HEMI is paired with a robust TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, which enhances fuel economy and delivers crisp and smooth gear changes. The HEMI delivers a class-leading towing capacity of up to 7,200 lbs.
A 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen infotainment system delivers operating speeds that are five times faster when compared to the previous generation. The advanced system also delivers customizable user profiles, standard wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Alexa “Home to Car” functionality.
The new Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve 4×4 also gives owners a bird’s-eye view of precious cargo, courtesy of the rear-seat monitoring camera. The system projects a best-in-class, high-definition image and delivers several segment-exclusive features, including a clear view of second-row, rear-facing child seat occupants, a split-view display, and a unique “zoom-to-seat” function.
A digital rearview camera system replaces the conventional rearview mirror with a 9.2-inch-wide LCD that shows real-time video from a rear-facing camera. Unlike a conventional rearview mirror, the new digital camera system offers a view that is unobstructed by the D-pillars or rear seats. When not in use as a display, the screen reverts back to a reflective mirror.
Additionally, a windshield Heads-Up Display (HUD) offers a full-color display that is configurable up to 10 inches and provides key vehicle information to the driver, including speed, speed limit, navigation, and driver-assist systems. The advanced, high-performance audio system features a 17-channel amplifier with a maximum output of 950 watts and 19 speakers, including a 10-inch subwoofer, to envelope vehicle occupants in high-definition sound.
