The Jeep Grand Cherokee L could be the three-row Grand Cherokee, so whereas I’ve already discovered how a lot stuff can match within the two-row mannequin’s cargo space, this baggage take a look at will measure how a lot suits behind the L’s third row. That may be commonplace working process for three-row automobiles round right here at Baggage Check HQ.
In keeping with the specs, there may be 17.7 cubic ft of area behind the raised third row within the Grand Cherokee L. This could be mid-pack for the three-row crossover SUV phase. As I’ve repeatedly discovered, nevertheless, these numbers may be deceiving since they could or might not embrace underfloor storage that will or will not be helpful for hauling baggage. The JGCL does have underfloor storage, however I could not inform if it counts towards that 17.7 quantity and also you’re about to see if it is truly helpful.
Right here is the area in query. As Dr. Evil would say, “Fairly commonplace actually.”
Now, what about that underfloor storage query?
Nope! This isn’t going to be useful. Maybe if Jeep discovered a special place to retailer the jack, however as is, this may not be useful for baggage. I can let you know proper now that the JGCL will not be difficult the Telluride and Pilot for Baggage Check supremacy.
As with each Baggage Check I do, I exploit two midsize curler suitcases that will have to be checked in on the airport (26 inches lengthy, 16 huge, 11 deep), two roll-aboard suitcases that simply barely match within the overhead (24L x 15W x 10D), and one smaller roll-aboard that matches simply (23L x 15W x 10D). I additionally embrace my spouse’s fancy in a single day bag simply to spruce issues up a bit (21L x 12W x 12D).
That is technically the perfect I might do: the 2 medium baggage (backside), one of many two largest baggage (blue higher left) and a squished and cockeyed fancy bag. That is clearly a bit janky. I additionally was not in a position to put the larger bag on the underside alongside one of many medium baggage as I might within the Nissan Pathfinder and Subaru Ascent.
Nonetheless, there are some alternate options.
Whereas I did not have the luggage essential to neatly fill this area, you may see above that I might’ve been in a position to match an additional small roll-aboard and fancy bag if I had them.
Now, I have not accomplished this with different three-row automobiles, so I can not actually say how this outcome stacks up with the competitors. However, it does provide you with a fairly good concept of what can match again right here. Frankly, six baggage for a seven-passenger car is fairly good. You simply have to ensure nobody goes nuts on the packing entrance.
Finally, although, the shortage of underfloor storage and a barely narrower cargo space do hamper the Grand Cherokee L, and places it towards the underside of the three-row crossover SUV phase.
