Jeep Grand Cherokee Trunk Dimensions and Guidelines

There are many positive aspects of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It’s roomy and pleasant inside, with top-tier towing capacity and genuine off-road ability to boot. It also has finely tuned advanced driving aids that make driving simpler and safer. But how much cargo space does this SUV have to offer?

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes in 2- and 3-row-seat versions. The 2-row Cherokee has a maximum cargo volume of 70.8 cubic feet, with 37.7 cubic feet behind the 2nd row. The 3-row version has a maximum of 84.6 cubic feet behind the 1st row and 17.2 cubic feet behind the 3rd row.

In this guide, I’ll provide specific information regarding the trunk space of this year’s take on the classic SUV, as well as its interior and exterior measurements.

2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trims

Before diving straight into the measurement specs of the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it’s important to note that this SUV comes in 6 distinct trim styles, each of which comes in the following drivetrain options:

Laredo (base) Standard Optional
Altitude Standard Optional
Limited Standard Optional
Overland Standard Optional
Summit Standard Optional
Summit Reserve N/A Standard

At a glance, it can be difficult to distinguish one trim from the other apart from their exterior and interior accents. It’s really only when you open their doors and see what each trim is packing that you can get a feel for how their vastly different MSRPs can be justified.

Now, let’s take a good look at the cargo space of this year’s take on an American favorite.

Something else worth noting is that the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee comes with different seating arrangements. All trims, from the Laredo to the Summit Reserve, are available in 2-row and 3-row seating options. So, not only do their passenger volumes differ greatly, but the amount of storage space will be affected by how many seats the SUV has.

The amount of trunk space in the 2-row version of the 2023 Grand Cherokee, you will receive:

  • 70.8 cubic feet of total cargo space behind the 1st row (2nd row folded down)
  • 37.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd row

As for the 3-row version, the cargo space ratings are as follows:

  • 84.6 cubic feet of total cargo space behind the 1st row (2nd and 3rd rows folded down)

These figures apply to all Grand Cherokee trims and seating arrangements.

What’s New for the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Transitioning from 2021 to 2022 saw major changes between the model years. However, this year’s take on the classic American SUV offers minimal updates at best. One of the most prominent changes is the off-road Trailhawk model, which is available as a 4xe plug-in hybrid model only.
