Model Year 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee: Two New Trims.

Laredo & Altitude Hit the Stage

Jeep has declared two additional packages for the esteemed Grand Cherokee line, providing patrons further choices. According to Mopar Insiders, the Laredo X and Altitude X trims have been added – granting a selection of attributes likely to be revered. Similar to what the brand has done with past iterations of the Grand Cherokee, these packages seem just a bit more modest than previous offerings.

The perennial Grand Cherokee remains popular among SUV fans due to its attractive design, optional off-roading or upmarket features, as well as the modern generations expanded seating. This accounts for its popularity and consequent high prices; Stellantis is obviously aware of this. Sadly, there are no statements concerning pricing of these new editions yet, though it likely adds a few thousand dollars above the underlying packages they derive from.

Getting its start with the Laredo, the base model of the aggregation initiates at $42,830 for 2023. It’s exceptionally admired, largely because it offers numerous commendable elements including dual-zone atmosphere control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto plus a bounty of USB jacks. Furthermore, the fresh Laredo X bundle includes a single-pane sunroof for two and three-row modifications as well as 18-inch altogether emblazoned aluminum wheels on the lone two-row model.

Starting at the high price of $47,935, the Altitude is packed full of technological features, due in part to the addition of the Luxury Tech bundle, a $1,545 upgrade if selected on the Laredo variant. Increasing its appeal, it also boasts gloss black accents and the optional Altitude X package, which includes a single-pane sunroof for all models. In summary, the Altitude trim provides great value for money.

It certainly appears that the two different types of trims don’t have very much in them, equipment-wise. The sunroof alone can be as expensive as $1,500 so one has to ask: what more is Jeep going to ask for when these packages are unveiled? Pending the unveiling, we should reserve our judgement on this topic.

The integration of these dual packages expands on the reworking done by Jeep to their range, such as discontinuing the non-4xe Trailhawk variant and limiting the 10.1-inch display availability only to Limited and Overland editions. Moreover, this is in succession to the ceasing of the much-appreciated but fuel-consuming Hemi V8 petrol motor that was concluded at the end of last 12 months as the organisation goes all in on electrification.
