Refined Exteriors

Both the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L have exteriors that will let you flaunt your sense of refinement. Each has a smooth contour that curves gently around the vehicle. The integration of features, like the distinct Jeep intake grille, elegant headlights, and window trim, gives each of the vehicles a stylish and aerodynamic appearance to balance the air of strength that both of them project.

Designers of the Grand Cherokee L reached into the past and brought back the sophisticated exterior aesthetic of previous Jeep models into the modern era. The front of the Grand Cherokee L is distinctly more sculpted than that of the Grand Cherokee and gives admirers the impression this is a more intentional and cultivated design.
