Pricing For 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Lineup Will Get A Significant Hike!

Both Two- And Three-Row Models Will Get Price Increases...

It was nearly 30 years ago, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee began its legacy as the most-awarded SUV in history. After four groundbreaking generations, the newest iteration kicked off with the first-ever three-row variant called the Grand Cherokee L (WL75). The introduction of a three-row model answered a lot of Grand Cherokee enthusiasts calls for a larger model offering more passenger room. But, it wasn’t until September 29th that we finally got to see the two-row Grand Cherokee (WL74) offering that ultimately replaces the previous (WK2) generation.

Unlike recent unveilings, Jeep refrained from releasing the pricing on the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup. But thanks to the keen eyes over at Muscle Cars and Trucks, it seems that Jeep has prematurely posted the starting U.S. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Prices (MSRPs) of the standard (non-4xe) two-row Grand Cherokee models on the Jeep.com website.

Jeep did take the pricing down, earlier today once the word had gotten out to the internet. But for those who missed the numbers, here is a breakdown of the starting MSRPs for each of the two-row Grand Cherokee trims…

2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee (WL74) Trims Starting MSRP  Price Difference From 2021
Grand Cherokee Laredo 4×2 $37,390 +$2,420 (over 21MY Laredo E)
Grand Cherokee Altitude 4×2 $41,945 +$3,230 (over 21MY Laredo X)
Grand Cherokee Limited 4×2 $43,710 +$2,515
Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4×4 $50,275 +$3,880
Grand Cherokee Overland 4×2 $53,305 +$5,570
Grand Cherokee Summit 4×2 $57,365 +$3,280
Grand Cherokee Summit Reserve 4×4 $63,365 N/A

You can also see that we broke down the new pricing structure leaked on the Jeep website, to the outgoing 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee (WK2) model’s pricing structure. The result is a hefty increase across the lineup, which is usually expected every time an auto manufacturer rolls out a completely new vehicle. If the numbers are correct from Jeep.com, then the new entry-level Laredo will be approximately $2,420 more expensive than the entry-level 2021 model.

On another note, when we originally started writing this article two days ago, we were contacted by several of our dealer connections which stated that the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L models they have been pre-ordering have shown significant price increases. One dealer posted on our dedicated WLJeepForum.com website that one 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Overland 4×4 with the Pentastar V6 they had ordered, with the 10.1-inch Uconnect, Luxury Tech Group IV, and Advanced ProTech III Group packages now has a U.S. MSRP of $64,780, versus the $62,870 MSRP it had when it launched. Grand Cherokee L models also saw, a slightly price hike and some of its features cut recently as well for the 2021 models.

We do know that the Detroit Assembly Complex – Mack facility that is currently manufacturing the Grand Cherokee L and the new Grand Cherokee, has been made a priority plant during the semiconductor shortage. Stellantis will make sure that the Mack facility has enough chips to continue to cranks out as many Grand Cherokee (WL) models as it can.

With that being said, its no surprise that semiconductor shortage has caused many automakers to rise the cost of vehicles. The issue also lies with dealers, who are also struggling for inventory to put huge adjustments on popular vehicles as well, causing new products to be even more expensive than ever.

Jeep knows it has a hot seller on its hands with the launch of the new Grand Cherokee (WL). But we will be curious to see the official price increases for the 2022 model year, once they are announced.

WOW! Does anyone have the comp's between the Grand Cherokee L and the Dodge Durango? The price jump for the two row is quite steep! I wonder how the L compares to the Explorer and the rest?

As soon as I sat in the new Grand Cherokee I knew that the level of finish, the overall improvement to a new refined level would come at a price. There is no comparison with my old Grand Cherokee and personally, this is the level this Jeep should be at and most buyers will fork over the cash willingly. BUT, not everyone will or can and that brings into focus one of my pet discussion points, where does Jeep go with Cherokee?
The Cherokee needs to bridge the gap left by the old Grand Cherokee in size, capability, appointments and price, everything must be re-defined from the now bit bigger Compass to a bit smaller and more affordable Grand Cherokee.
Proposed solution- Refine the last generation GC platform, with an entry level model mor close to the current Cherokee pricing and then go upscale from there to a Summit model that rivals the interior and appointments of the Grand Cherokee mid point models at a lower price. We now have a larger, more capable, more modern and upscale Cherokee built on the same former assembly line that better fits the segment. Filling that gap seems a great solution.
It is my position that the current Cherokee will become too starkly less appealing when seen along side the GC and too many past GC customers will be priced out and sized out of the Jeep brand. Best of all this can all be accomplished at the cost of a major update of a current product. I must also note that the Cherokee has little global viability now and even less in the future so this solution makes even more sense. The personal note here is this would be the Jeep I’d wish for given the choice. Jeep, fill the gap.

Hold your britches folks ... not to be political but the supply chain is close to collapsing while by Sundown leadership is in bed....(at some point it not pollical it just our reality. Inflation is going to Kill us) If they want to pull out the National guard it should be unload ships and drive trucks.
