Sport utility vehicles are having a momentum in the United States. In fact, SUVs outsold sedans two to one in 2019, according to The New York Times.

“S.U.V.s made up 47.4 percent of U.S. sales in 2019 with sedans at 22.1 percent,” Tom Libby, automotive analyst at IHS Markit, told the New York Times. “By 2025, we see the light-truck segment that includes S.U.V.s, vans and pickups to make up 78 percent of sales compared to 72 percent now.”

Meanwhile, Technavio notes that the luxury SUV market share is expected to grow by 1.59 million units from 2019 to 2024, progressing at a CAGR of 7 percent. Considering that SUVs are seen as a safer and more reliable option, and they have additional cargo space, the move toward sport utility vehicles is hardly surprising. But in a market that is dominated by Toyota, it gets increasingly difficult for other car manufacturers to break though. However, American car brands are having an easier ride as consumers buy them out of “economic patriotism” and because they have more affordable prices.

Luckily, in recent years, some American car manufacturers like Jeep have understood that in order to thrive in the U.S. market, they need more than “Buy American” marketing campaigns; thus, they started innovating. More fuel-efficient options have been presented to the public, various technological improvements have been added to new SUV models, while the design was also seriously revamped.

Make no mistake, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L might be a family-friendly SUV, but that doesn’t imply that the interior is austere or dull. In fact, every detail screams extreme luxury.

The cabin has the three-rows of seats layout that offers generous space for all passengers. For the 2022 model, the interior was totally restyled, getting some design clues from Grand Wagoneer.

The cabin seems spacious enough, but the third row seats remain crowded for adult passengers. In fact, normal-sized adults might have a tough time traveling in there because of space limitations. Other than that, the padded-seats are comfortable, and the soft leather upholstery makes the cabin look posh and luxurious. Customers who live in states with extreme weather-like Florida or California during summer months should select the optional feature that cools or heats off their seats.

The leather-wrapped steering wheel is easy to clean and looks far better than vegan leather. Meanwhile, the wood trims that come with lower trim levels look a bit out-of-touch and quite fake.

The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L also got a revamped infotainment system. For instance, there is a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen that can be connected to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Passengers can also enjoy music thanks to an unbranded six-speaker stereo. Naturally, the stereo system can be upgraded to a nine-speaker Alpine audio system or a high-end 19-speaker McIntosh audio system.

Parents traveling with kids might want to consider the pair of optional rear-seat entertainment screens, which come with Amazon FireTV and Wi-Fi connectivity. This option keeps kids entertained during long journeys and parents can have a more relaxing trip.
