What is special about the Grand Cherokee L?

“This well-known, long-running nameplate is best for a family that likes to adventure,” said Rachel Rothman, chief technologist and executive technical director of the Good Housekeeping Institute. 
“We found the vehicle comfy and spacious for the driver as well as the front and back-seat passengers. And while you'll likely spend more time driving on suburban roads than off-roading, it's nice to know it's an adept off-road vehicle,” she said. 
The average family might not take the kids off-roading frequently, but the Grand Cherokee L is a solid choice if that happens to be your thing thanks to its excellent four-wheel drive, suspension, and traction management systems. 
For those who need extra space, the three-row model, which debuted in 2021, is a great choice. 
But unsurprisingly, an SUV of this size isn’t particularly fuel-efficient. While it gets around 19 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, those numbers go down with the optional V8 engine. 

Grand Cherokee L safety and tech features

The Grand Cherokee L has over 110 standard and optional safety features, including: 
  • Driver assistance systems
  • 360-degree surround view
  • Drowsy driving detection
  • Night vision cameras
  • Rear-seat monitoring cameras
It also includes robust convenience and entertainment options like rear-seat entertainment displays with Amazon Fire TV, the Uconnect 5 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and an optional 19-speaker, 950-watt sound system. 

Here’s how they chose the winners 

Every year, Car & Driver works together with Good Housekeeping to help families decide which of the year’s new cars is best for them.
