The Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve 4×4 is an exceptional luxury SUV. I spent a week in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve driving around the Washington metropolitan area. My drives took me as far west on I-70, I-270, and I-81, to Western Maryland in Hagerstown and the Northeast and part of West Virginia. I also drove around I-495 and drove all the way east to Kent Island on I-97 in Maryland.
The experience was thrilling was exhilarating. I drove and rode in style. My brother used to own a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited of the previous generation. The Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve would have been the perfect vehicle for him to upgrade to. After he had finished his residency and became a doctor he will go to brands like the BMW X5 and now the Porsche Cayenne and the Mercedes-Benz GLS.
During my week spent driving the Grand Summit I was looking at the fit and finish. I was thinking about how my brother’s taste has evolved since he was a Grand Cherokee owner. I could see that he will be truly delighted. You have real wood polished wood finishes. You have an exceptional fit and finish with Palermo leather seats.
You have a third row of seating which is great because he has two children now in the family. He’s a doctor with a wife who’s also a doctor. They make trips in their GLS. I figured that this Grand Cherokee L Summit would have been perfect for a recent cross-country trip they made from Texas to Colorado. You have massaging seats for both the driver and the passenger. You have active safety technology. You have the exceptional McIntosh premium audio sound system.
It features 19 speakers as part of the summit reserve group list of options. I was able to benchmark the Chronicles Album. This is music I made with the music department at Carnegie Mellon. The sound came out so rich and exceptional. The Palermo Leather seats not only hugged my body but were really calming. I meditated and listened to the Shine App.
Underneath the hood is the 3.6 liter v6, which makes 290 horsepower and. 257 pound-feet of torque.
It is mated to an all-wheel-drive system and an 8-speed automatic transmission. You get an EPA-rated 25 miles per gallon on the highway.
But I also enjoyed the Uconnect 5 system. It features a 10.1-inch display and also integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You also get a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. And Sirius XM. In this first-of-its-kind three-row Grand Cherokee you can comfortably seating for six adults. Everybody rides in style with many climate zones and extra charging ports.
My Mom had a chance to ride along with me. It was really impressive. She wanted me to order one of these. You get 20-inch real standard, but the summit model I drove came with the 21-inch wheels. This is part of the summer reserve group. In addition, there is night vision with pedestrian and animal detection. This is how you should travel.
The Grand Cherokee L Summer reserve is not only an exceptional value but a must-have. It should be on your list if you looking at any premium or luxury three-row SUV.
The base price on the Grand Cherokee L Summit 4×4 is $59,660. With options like the summer reserve group that I mentioned it came out to a delivered price of $66,695. For more information visit www.jeep.com.
