Serving Gillette, WY

At White’s Energy Motors, we do our part to introduce the latest models in the Jeep lineup as soon as they are available. When you drop by our dealership soon, an all-new model may immediately grab your attention. The Grand Cherokee L has a similar nameplate as the Grand Cherokee, but it stands on its own as an independent model. The Grand Cherokee L has more robust dimensions and an extra row of seats. These are only some of their many notable differences. What are the other factors that may sway your model selection?


You can appreciate the spectacular power behind the wheel of both of these vehicles. The V6, 3.6-liter Pentastar engine that produces 290 horsepower in the Grand Cherokee is also available in the Grand Cherokee L. However, because of its larger dimensions, the Grand Cherokee L’s weight, the V6 engine produces 285 horsepower. If you opt for the Grand Cherokee L, you could choose the available V8, 5.7-liter engine as an alternative. It has a 357-horsepower rating and a towing capacity of 7,200 pounds.


The differences between these top Jeep models extend to their exterior style. As a three-row SUV, the Grand Cherokee L has broader dimensions with an extended rear. The Grand Cherokee has a relatively rounded nose with a sloped hood and powerful contours on the sides. On the other hand, the Grand Cherokee L has a chiseled personality line on the sides with a flatter nose and hood. You will also notice that the Grand Cherokee L has a horizontal theme through the fog lamps, headlights, and taillights.


While the Grand Cherokee L’s three-row design is among its most apparent difference from the two-row Grand Cherokee, other differences are also present. For example, the Grand Cherokee L comes with an innovative dashboard design that features an angled, 10-inch display screen sitting prominently in the center stock. This model also has rotary controls for the gear selection and the climate management system, a 10.25-inch digital display cluster for the instrumentation readouts, and more.
