Middle East Debut for the new Jeep Grand Cherokee L which breaks new ground in the region’s full-size SUV segment.

With the reveal of the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L in the Middle East region, the Jeep brand marks 80 years of 4×4 leadership with the rebirth of an American SUV icon – blending off-road capability with a premium on-road driving experience, which, for the first time in the vehicle’s history, includes a third row of seating.

Legendary off-road capability begins courtesy of three 4×4 systems – Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II with rear electronic limited slip-differential (eLSD). Additional to the three 4×4 systems, for the first time in the history of the model, the Grand Cherokee L offers a class-exclusive Quadra-Lift Air Suspension, featuring electronic adaptive damping. This delivers a best-in-class ground clearance, at 277mm, while also adjusting height automatically based on road conditions and speed to reduce drag and for better fuel economy.

Award-winning powertrains

The new model offers a choice of two powerful, fuelefficient and refined engines with proven performance for any driving situation.

Standard is the all-aluminum 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine, rated at 293hp and 353Nm torque. Those who seek more power can opt for the award-winning 5.7-litre V8, rated at 357hp and 529Nm torque. The V8 delivers performance and efficiency with VVT and Fuel Saver Technology (cylinder deactivation), which closes the valves to four of the engine’s cylinders during light-load operation. Depending on the driving scenario, cylinder shutoff can increase fuel economy from five to 20%.


The proportion of the new vehicle was inspired by the original Wagoneer, Jeep’s first full-size luxury SUV. The lean profile features a longer hood and cab, which shifts the vehicle rearward. A forward-tipped grille further enhances the length of the hood. A lowered, tapered roof improves aerodynamic performance and efficiency without sacrificing cargo spaciousness and utility.

For the first time, a premium, full suite of LED lighting is standard on all Jeep Grand Cherokee trim levels. Ultra slim headlamps with unique signature lighting set into Gloss Black bezels, along with slim horizontal fog lamps, express the serious nature of the front end. In the rear, ultra slim taillamps with unique lit signatures complete the lighting story.
The next-generation interior has evolved to create a more refined expression, featuring handcrafted materials with an attention to detail and modern amenities that pair seamlessly.

The centre stack has a bright structural element framing a 10.1-inch display for the new Uconnect 5 system. Also new is a 10.25-inch frameless digital gauge cluster with nearly two dozen different menus, including driver-assist technologies.
