Jeep Grand Cherokee 2023: pricing revealed for five-seat SUV


A plug-in hybrid variant has also been confirmed to join the local range later this year

Almost one year after pricing was revealed for Jeep’s three-row Grand Cherokee L, the local arm of the American brand has detailed pricing and specifications for the regular two-row Grand Cherokee. 

As you can probably surmise from the name, this Grand Cherokee is smaller than the Grand Cherokee L, offering five seats as opposed to its stablemate’s seven.

Jeep Australia has confirmed that the Grand Cherokee will arrive in dealers from February, priced from $77,950 before on-road costs.

At this point, it’ll likely come up against traditional rivals such as the Toyota Kluger and Kia Sorento, as well as more upmarket competitors such as the Land Rover Discovery. 

What’s new for the Grand Cherokee?

Aside from being around 300mm shorter than the Grand Cherokee L and having two fewer seats, the two versions are largely quite similar. 

A single engine option is initially available for Australian buyers in the form of a 3.6-litre petrol V6 that produces 210kW/344Nm. This is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a 4×4 system.

Jeep Australia also confirmed that a plug-in hybrid variant will join the range later this year. It will make use of a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine that’s paired with two electric motors.

What trim levels will be offered locally? 

The Grand Cherokee range starts with the Night Eagle at $77,950. Standard interior equipment includes heated suede and faux-leather-accented seats that also get front-seat power adjustment.

The entry variant also gets a 10.1-inch infotainment display with wired Android Auto and Apple Carplay, a 10.25-inch digital cluster, a six-speaker sound system, and wireless phone charging. 

Standard safety equipment includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and automatic emergency braking.

Premium paint at $1750 and a sunroof at $3250 are the only two options available on the entry-level Night Eagle. 

Sitting in the middle of the Grand Cherokee range is the Limited, at $83,950 before on-road costs. 

On the inside, the Limited adds faux leather-accented seats that are heated as well as ventilated. It also gets heated second-row seating, second-row window shades, and a nine-speaker audio system. 

Safety equipment remains the same from the Night Eagle, but a 360-degree camera, and a digital rear-vision mirror is added.

Premium paint still costs $1750 on the Limited, but a head-up display and a panoramic sunroof can be added as part of a ‘Vision Group’ at $4250. 

At the top of the Grand Cherokee range is the Overland, which comes in at $98,450 before on-road costs. 

Heated and ventilated nappa leather seats, a dual-pane sunroof, and a nine-speaker premium audio system round out the changes on the inside of the Overland.

Those looking for quad-zone climate control, ventilated second-row seating, and 12-way adjustment front seats will have to opt for the ‘Luxury Tech Group’, which comes at a $4500 premium. 

It’s also worth noting that a digital rear-view mirror, and wireless phone charging are also part of this pack, both of which come standard in the Night Eagle and Limited grades. 

As the most off-road capable of the range, the Overland also gets a two-speed active transfer case with high- and low-range gears. 

Buyers can further improve the Overland’s off-road ability by opting for the $2750 off-road option package. This adds all-terrain tyres, a limited-slip rear differential, underbody protection, and a ‘Trail Rated’ badge to top it all off.
