The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee is an excellent example of Jeep pushing toward the luxury end of the mid-size SUV segment. With that, the 2024 Grand Cherokee retains its off-road capable nature and does not sacrifice any prior capabilities that people grew to love. Also, the 2024 Grand Cherokee comes with a healthy spread of trim levels, which means no matter your budget or need, the Grand Cherokee has an option for you.
Despite the Grand Cherokee being a staple model in Jeep’s expansive lineup, most buyers may not know there is a 2-row and a 3-row option within this model. The 2024 Grand Cherokee L is a 3-row, luxury-focused but purpose-built mid-size SUV while the 2024 Grand Cherokee is a 2-row mid-size SUV, with less room but a more approachable price. In this article, we will cover both the similarities and the differences between the two, so you can decide which is the best choice for you.
Visually, the 2024 Grand Cherokee L and Grand Cherokee are extremely similar, size aside. Also known as the WL body style, the fully redesigned Grand Cherokee added a much-needed exterior refresh to the Grand Cherokee in 2021 when it was released. This revised exterior features Jeep’s signature 7-slat grille in front, accompanied by some sleeker LED headlights with daytime running lights. A functional lower grille sits below the upper one, and this boxy yet aggressive honeycomb grille has two smaller ones with foglights on either side of it. This boxy style, which is a nice throwback to prior classic Jeep design language, is carried through the side of the vehicle as well. A single body line runs nearly parallel to the ground from the front headlight to the rear taillight. The roofline of the 2024 Grand Cherokee sits considerably more horizontal when compared to the sloping roof of the prior generation of Grand Cherokees. The rear is finished with some sleek LED taillights, matching the headlights perfectly, along with some simple muscular trunk and rear bumper lines.
When comparing the 2024 Grand Cherokee L to the 2024 Grand Cherokee, you will notice a few subtle differences between the two, exterior-wise. First and foremost, the L is longer to accompany its 3-row seating arrangement. This is easily seen when looking at the side profile, as it is visually longer as well as more boxy towards the rear of the vehicle. The Grand Cherokee L also has a slightly different lower front grille that angles outwards instead of being near perfectly rectangular.
It should be noted that there is an endless variation of exterior choices based on the wide spread of trim levels, colors, and exterior packages.
The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee aims to provide the most customizable option available when shopping for a mid-size SUV. This is seen with the large spread of trim levels and the ability to choose a 3-row option for any of the available trim levels, instead of settling for a different vehicle that may not be as appealing which is the case with most other automakers.
Below is a breakdown of the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee trim levels and the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee L trim levels.
Similar to the exterior of the 2024 Grand Cherokee, there are near endless customizable options when speccing out the interior. This is thanks to, again, the expansive trim lineup and the ability to opt for the 3-row L model or 2-row standard model. The main thing to note about the 2024 Grand Cherokee’s interior, is it is leaps and bounds more luxurious than its prior iterations. In its higher trim levels, like the Summit, you will find items such as Nappa leather, ambient lighting, 16-way adjustable seats, and massaging seats.
There are some changes though when comparing the interior of the 2024 Grand Cherokee L and the 2024 Grand Cherokee. The first, and most glaring, difference is the Grand Cherokee L has 3-rows of seating, which are quite roomy. The 2024 Grand Cherokee L has best-in-class 2nd-row seating, without sacrificing comfort and functionality. The 2nd row of the Grand Cherokee L has 2 plush bucket seats, that can fold down to offer more storage space. The standard 2024 Grand Cherokee offers excellent cargo capacity as well, with 70.8 cubic feet of cargo room. This, however, is beaten by the L with a staggering 84.6 cubic feet of available cargo capacity. The Grand Cherokee L also features an available camera system that allows you to monitor the third row of seating, perfect for families with children.
One thing the Grand Cherokee and its extended L variant have in common is the sheer amount of best-in-class technology that is packed into their cabins. From safety monitoring systems to crystal clear sound systems, the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee does not skip a beat. Each trim level of the 2024 Grand Cherokee will come with a responsive and accurate LED touchscreen, paired with Jeep’s Uconnect system. Lightning-fast directions are available to you with the thanks of Uconnect as well as the ability to save up to 5 separate user profiles and connect multiple smartphones. Passengers are also not neglected inside the 2024 Grand Cherokee or Grand Cherokee L thanks to an additional LED screen above the glovebox, allowing them to send directions to the driver, among other things.
Aside from the impressive comfort and luxury-based technology found inside, there is a plethora of standard safety features to keep you and your family safe.
The cherry on top of the copious amounts of creature comforts offered by the 2024 Grand Cherokee is it has the most available safety and security features in its class.
Here is a list of all the standard safety technology you will get no matter which trim level you opt for:
The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee also has received a 5-star NHTSA overall safety rating which means the utmost protection for you and your precious cargo.
The standard engine you will find across all 2024 Grand Cherokee models, no matter if they are the 3-row L variant or not, is the 3.6L Pentastar V6 that produces 293 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This motor can tow up to 6,200 pounds while achieving 19 city and 26 highway mpg. This efficient, yet powerful, engine is paired with a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. If you opt for a larger 3-row Grand Cherokee L, you will receive the option to upgrade this engine. The Overland, Summit, and Summit Reserve trims are available with Jeep’s 5.7L Hemi V8 engine. This powerful engine option ups the horsepower to 357 and the pound-feet of torque to 390. You also will have some increased towing capacity upping that figure to 7,200 pounds. There is not a current official mpg rating for the Hemi V8 engine option for 2024, but you can expect some decreased efficiency in lieu of the increased power figures.
If you are seeking out a more fuel-efficient option, the 2024 Grand Cherokee lineup does offer a hybrid version. The 2024 Grand Cherokee 4xe is available in 2-row only and maintains a lot of the similar styling to the gas-powered model. Despite this, some subtle exterior cues hint towards it being a hybrid such as blue tow hooks, badging on the rear, and the charging port located on the front fender. The major appeal of the 4xe is the increased fuel efficiency, as it is able to achieve 56 mpge. This is thanks to it being powered by a 2.oL Turbo PHEV engine, that produces 375 horsepower and a staggering 470 pound-feet of torque. You also do not sacrifice much towing capability as this hybrid Grand Cherokee is able to tow up to 6,000 pounds. The 4xe is available in 6 distinct trim levels; the Base 4xe, 30th Anniversary, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, and Summit Reserve.
