Meet The Rest Of The 2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L Lineup:

Laredo, Altitude, & Limited Will Make Up A Majority Of The New WL Sales...

Earlier this month, the Jeep® brand pulled the covers off of its highly-anticipated three-row 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. While we did get a bunch of new information from the launch, it was more focused on the premium Overland, Summit, and Summit Reserve models. It has left a lot of the Grand Cherokee fan base wondering about the rest of the lineup. Now, thanks to our dealer connections we are learning more about the other models in the lineup.

2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L Laredo 4×4. (MoparInsiders).

Starting on the entry-level side of the lineup will be the Laredo. As the base model, the Laredo will come with the following standard equipment…

Jeep has not released any pricing for the new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. We expect the Laredo to be priced somewhere around the $40,000 in the United States.

2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L Altitude 4×4. (MoparInsiders).

Slotted just above the Grand Cherokee L Laredo, is the Altitude model. Based on the Laredo, the Altitude adds the popular dark treatment people have come to love on models across the Jeep vehicle portfolio for the past decade. 

  • 20-Inch x 8-Inch Gloss Black Aluminum Wheels
  • 265/50R20 Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus Black Sidewall A/S Tires
  • Gloss Black Grille
  • Gloss Black Lower Fascia Trim
  • Gloss Black Badges
  • Gloss Black Exterior Mirrors
  • Black DLO Side Window Trim
  • Dark Headlamp Bezels
  • Dark Taillamps

Inside the Altitude, there should be the usual dark-themed interior as well. This should include…

  • Piano Black Interior Accents
  • Black Suede/Leather Seats
  • Black Interior Environment
  • Black Accent Stitch (Door Armrest, Seats, Steering Wheel,
    and Center Console Arm Rest)

Again, while pricing has yet to be announced. Judging by the Altitude package’s pricing in the past on the Grand Cherokee (WK2), we expect the Altitude to cost a $1,500 to $2,000 premium over the Laredo.

2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L Limited 4×4. (MoparInsiders).

The mid-range 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Limited not only features the same standard features as the Laredo but adds more amenities while giving the Grand Cherokee L a more upscale appearance. Standard features will include the following…

Pricing for the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Limited should start right around the $45,000 mark.

Under the hood of all three models is the all-aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, rated at 290 horsepower and 257 lb.-ft. of torque. Lauded for its power and refinement, the 60-degree angle between the Pentastar V6’s cylinder banks makes it inherently smooth running, augmented by accessories that bolt directly to the engine block. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine is rated for a towing capacity of up to 6,200 pounds and an estimated class-leading driving range of nearly 500 miles. It is paired with a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission.

Production of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L will begin in early March at the Mack Avenue Complex in Detroit, Michigan. Don’t forget to check out our dedicated WLJeepForum.com forum, to discuss everything surrounding the fifth-generation Grand Cherokee (WL) models.
