The Grand Cherokee L is Jeep's midsized three-row SUV based on the redesigned Grand Cherokee.
Most GC-Ls are powered by the familiar 290-hp, 3.6-liter V6, which tends to be noisy when revved and isn't that powerful or fuel-efficient.
High-end versions come with a 5.7-liter V8.
The eight-speed automatic is smooth and downshifts appropriately when descending hills.
The ride has an underlying firmness but is composed over undulations.
Body roll is well-contained in corners, but the steering is too light.
Seating configurations are either for six or seven passengers, and the third row is relatively roomy.
The interior exudes a premium feel, but some of the redesigned controls are too cluttered.
Standard active safety and driver assistance features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, RCTW, LDW, and LKA.
