The Jeep Grand Cherokee has always been a leader of midsize, mainstream SUV capability, but with the 5th generation (WL) model, Jeep wants more than categorical dominance. Debuting as a three-row, the latest Grand Cherokee L attempts to move upmarket with a more refined exterior design and interior layout, while expanding its passenger versatility and improving its off-road maneuverability.
