If you're looking to travel around Sandusky, Avon Lake, or Willard, OH, in a new Jeep, our Firelands Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) team is here to assist! We can help you determine which model is better suited for your needs, and that includes when your choice comes down to the Jeep Grand Cherokee L vs. Grand Cherokee. 

While they offer a lot of the same features and capabilities, there are a few things that distinguish one from the other. Keep reading to see which one is a better match for your commute through Port Clinton or Fremont, OH! 


Need More Space? 

The main separation between the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee L is the room they provide. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is your standard 2-row SUV. That offers seating for five passengers comfortably while also providing space to load supplies in the back. Plus, you can fold down its seats to fit larger items in your SUV. 

The Grand Cherokee L is basically a larger version of the Grand Cherokee. This has three rows of seating, so you can seat a couple extra people in your vehicle when you're on carpool duty. Also, its back rows can be folded down, and with up to 84.6 cubic feet of cargo space, the Grand Cherokee L lets you fit everything from small furniture to camping gear in the back. 

Drive Through the City Often? 

With more interior space means the Grand Cherokee L is also the longer and bigger vehicle of the two SUVs. Since the Grand Cherokee has an exterior length of just 193.5 inches, height of 70.8 inches, and width of 77.5 inches, it's an SUV you can easily get in and out of tight areas. 

That includes areas with cars parked along the sides of the street. It also allows you to make tighter turns when you need to in the city. Also, with its shorter length and more narrow width, the Grand Cherokee is easy to park, whether it's a tight spot in a parking lot or you're parallel parking along the street. 

Modern Tech 

With either option, you'll gain an SUV with plenty of tech to enjoy! Some features will help you safely stay alert to what's happening on the roads around you, while other systems will be ready to add more entertainment and convenience to your travels. 

Each one has a center display, which gives you the ability to pick which songs or podcasts you want to listen to and even pull up directions to wherever you're headed. On this display in the Grand Cherokee L, you can also check on the kids in the back and make sure they remain buckled in and are getting along with its available rear-seat monitoring camera. 

Grand Cherokee vs Grand Cherokee L: Which One Is Right for Me? 

The choice between the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee L will come down to your personal needs. Going to take the kids and their friends to different activities in Avon Lake, Willard, or Port Clinton, Ohio? The extra space of the Grand Cherokee L might be better for you. 

Spend a lot of time driving downtown in Sandusky or just locally in Avon Lake, Ohio? The easy handling and compact size of the Grand Cherokee might be more practical for your travels. Either way, you can get a closer look at both Jeep models here at Firelands CDJR. Contact us today to schedule a test drive in the one that's right for you-or try out both!
