2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve Is Unparalleled Performance and Luxury

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is better than ever.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has long been regarded as one of the most iconic SUVs in the automotive industry. With its combination of legendary 4×4 capability, refined on-road performance, and premium features, it has garnered numerous awards and accolades over the years. Now, the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve takes this legacy to new heights by offering exceptional performance, comfort, functionality, and a touch of luxury. The SUV has a noteworthy feature. It is built using a global unibody vehicle architecture. It also has three rows of seats and can comfortably accommodate up to seven passengers. The cabin has individual climate zones for each occupant, making the journey enjoyable for everyone on board. The interior of this vehicle is stunningly comfortable and luxurious, with plush materials and advanced technology. No matter where you sit, you can expect to enjoy an incredibly comfortable ride.

Jeep has also introduced several new features and options for 2023.

The SUV offers advanced driver-assist systems, 360-degree surround view and night vision cameras, and an L2 driver-assist system with hands-on automated driving. The available 10-inch digital screens, Uconnect 5 system, windshield Head-up Display (HUD), digital rearview mirror, and rear-seat monitoring camera. The Summit Reserve model also boasts an exclusive premium 19-speaker McIntosh audio system, ensuring exceptional audio quality for all occupants.

Jeep vehicles provide authentic off-road capabilities.

It has three 4×4 systems that improve traction and an active transfer case for better performance. It’s perfect for rough terrains with a ground clearance of 10.9 inches and the ability to navigate through water up to 24 inches deep. The Jeep Selec-Terrain switch offers five modes to optimize performance, and the Overland and Summit models have Hill-descent Control for better control on steep inclines.

Two engine options are offered on the 2023 model.

Our test model came with the standard 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine. The engine generates up to 290 horsepower and 257 lb.-ft. of torque. At the $77,000 price point, I would have expected the 5.7-liter V8 engine, which offers 357 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines have a reliable TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, providing smooth gear changes and improved fuel efficiency. However, what holds this model back is the undersized engine for the yacht on wheels, which is nearing almost $80k.


As the SUV pulled into the driveway, I was struck by its mesmerizing Hydro Blue Pearl exterior. But, upon seeing the stunning interior, I realized that a different paint job would have been more complimentary, despite my love for blue. This Summit Reserve SUV offers luxurious options and features. Everything inside is on par with the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, making it a great choice for families. Despite feeling perky at times, this model’s steep MSRP had me expecting a beefier engine. I’m also concerned about its MPG, as I only got a combined 16.5 miles per gallon with a V6, but that may be due to my heavier foot. However, the SUV does offer a comfortable ride, a spacious cabin, and numerous luxury features, all in an attractive-looking SUV.

Jeep Grand Wagoneer (Series II Obsidian) – 2022 Test Drive Review

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer makes road trips effortless.

The good folks at Stellantis once again got me behind the wheel of their impressive Jeep Grand Wagoneer. This time it was Series II Obsidian model. I have been around this car a dozen times, which still amazes me. The Grand Wagoneer was my mode of transportation from Houston to Austin, where I covered the Fantastic Flim festival for my site Nerdtropolis. I knew this luxury SUV would provide an excellent and comfortable experience for my weekend journey.


Many have argued that the Grand Wagoner has a lackluster exterior design. I beg to differ, as this SUV has distinct styling cues and is filled with brilliant easter eggs if you look closely enough. The Obsidian appearance package is my favorite color combo on the Grand Wagoneer. It provides a Bight White exterior color matched with Piano Black accents all over the SUV, from the wheels to the seven-slot grille to the window trim and roof.

Exterior Rating: 8/10


Many interior elements pay tribute to the Grand Wagoneer’s long history and feature high-end craftsmanship and added upscale materials. The interior design is elegant and modern, from the door panels to the dash and center console. Seating 7, every passenger will be pampered with comfort, tech, and entertainment. The front passenger gets their own screen, and two more touchscreens are mounted onto the headrests for your rear passengers. One of my favorite features is the McIntosh Entertainment System, which provides crisp and excellent sound. Additionally, the center console mini fridge is a great and convenient addition. To top off, the luxury experience is the massaging seats with over a dozen settings.

Interior Rating: 10/10


The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer has a standard 6.4-liter V8 delivering 471 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque with the help of an eight-speed automatic transmission. Despite weighing over 6,300 pounds, the SUV can move quickly, especially when you need to pass on the highways. This SUV has an exceptionally smooth ride and offers excellent handling despite its extra large size. Navigating this yacht on wheels is a breeze, especially on the highway. Just recently, Jeep introduced the successor to this engine for 2023. It is a 510-hp twin-turbocharged inline-six called the Hurricane engine, and I have heard great things about it already. One is better MPG, as I was getting 14 miles per gallon on my trip, and this engine needed premium gas which can make a dent in your wallet.

This SUV has a 10,000-pound maximum towing capacity, three available four-wheel-drive systems, and a Quadra-Lift air suspension. The air suspension has multiple ride heights, allowing easy access into the SUV by lowering it by a half-inch and making it over obstacles with its 10 inches of ground clearance after raising the ride height to 3.6 inches. The Grand Wagoneer has safety features such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Active Lane Management, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear park assist sensors, Rear Cross Path detection, Active Driving Assist, and Night Vision.

Performance Rating: 9/10

2022 Grand Wagoneer Verdict

The Grand Wagoneer aims to compete against premium and luxury full-size SUVs like the GMC Yukon Denali and Cadillac Escalade. It is the ultimate ultra-luxury SUV for large families that like to travel short and long distances. The Grand Wagoneer offers best-in-class overall passenger volume, best-in-class third-row head and legroom, and the most cargo volume behind the third row. The MSRP for the model tested above is $112,475.

I look forward to the future Grand Wagoneers, such as the newly introduced L, providing more cargo space.

Overall Rating: 9/10
