Since its making last year, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee L (WL75) has become an important part of the Grand Cherokee lineup. Offering Grand Cherokee owners the ability to carry 6 or 7 passengers proved to be a game-changer for the nameplate and has now opened up the Grand Cherokee to many people who wouldn’t have considered the vehicle before.
The last Grand Cherokee (WK2) contributed a large amount of its success to the amount of dark-themed packages that were available on various trims in the lineup. According to Jeep, the “dark appearance packages” accounted for 40% of the brand’s sales on the WK2 in 2019.
So when the Grand Cherokee L launched in June of last year, we were shocked to see only one dark appearance package for the entire lineup: the Grand Cherokee L Altitude. Based on the entry-level Laredo, the Altitude added the following equipment…
- 20-Inch x 8.5-Inch Gloss Black-Painted Aluminum Wheels
- 265/50R20 BSW All-Season LRR Tires
- Leather-Trimmed Bucket Seats
- Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel
- Rain-Sensitive Windshield Wipers
- Remote-Start System
- Selectable Tire Fill Alert
- Wireless Phone Charging Pad
- Heated Steering Wheel
- Heated Front Seats
- Black Headliner
- 115-Volt Auxiliary Power Outlet
- Power Liftgate
- Gloss Black Exterior Accents
But that wasn’t enough for some Grand Cherokee buyers. Some customers wanted even more luxurious options. Jeep realized this and created the Grand Cherokee L Limited Black.
The Limited Black (ALC) package is currently only available for the Grand Cherokee L (sorry Grand Cherokee WL74 fans) and adds the same Gloss Black accents from the Altitude to the Limited models. This means that the Limited Black can now give customers dark-appearance features but with premium features like LED fog lamps, Capri leather seats, 8-way power driver seat with memory, 4-way driver/front-passenger lumbar adjuster with memory, and Selec-Terrain traction management system, which offers five available terrain modes (Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, Mud/Sand) on 4×4 models.
The package includes the following equipment…
- 20-inch x 8.5-Inch Gloss-Black Painted Alum Wheels
- 265/50R20 Performance All-Season Tires
- Gloss-Black Exterior Accents
- Black / Gloss-Black Roof Rails
Over the past couple of weeks, we have been seeing the new Limited Black package show up on dealer lots across the United States and Canada. This particular model shown, is currently in inventory (as of the writing of this article) at Wally Armour Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Alliance, Ohio.
Since the announcement of the Limited Black, Jeep has also announced another dark-themed package: the Grand Cherokee High Altitude. The High Altitude package adds premium 21-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels, Gloss Black accents and badges, roof rails, and a unique seven-slot grille to the already well-appointed Summit and Summit Reserve Grand Cherokee L models.
