With the Grand Cherokee, Jeep was the first manufacturer to introduce the unibody chassis in 1992. Jeep kept the tradition of bringing innovations with the Grand Cherokee L, the fifth generation of Grand Cherokee. Introduced in 2021, the Grand Cherokee L has been a huge success. Since Jeep decided to upgrade the SUV for 2023, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about the latest model from starting price, features, trims, and more.
