Which JEEP® Models Come With 3rd Row Seating?

Jeep Wagoneer 3rd Row

This year, we've finally seen the introduction of Jeep® models with 3rd-row seats. Before this year, you could only find Jeep® models with 3rd-row seats as custom builds. After demand for vehicles of this kind soared through the roof, the Jeep® brand decided to cater to their consumer base, adding on at least two models that would cater to seven or eight passengers. These Jeep® 3rd-row SUVs covered an existing gap in their product line and have led to much more interest in Jeep® models with larger passenger capacities. If you're among the curious personnel looking for the traditional elements of Jeep® vehicles alongside third-row capability, we're here to tell you all about the available third-row Jeep® models.

JEEP® Grand Cherokee L

The all-new Jeep® Grand Cherokee L is the first Jeep® model ever to introduce a third row of seating. Every one of the seven passengers inside this newly-introduced 3rd-row Jeep® model will appreciate the available ambient LED lighting, which will set the mood for this brand new type of cabin space. The front seats can be power-adjusted 16 ways, and they also come with memory and a massage feature. The leather-trimmed seating will have everyone at maximum relaxation, giving you a more peaceful drive the entire way there. Not to mention, the spacious legroom will help you avoid extra stops along the way just to stretch. However, if you wanted to stop just to enjoy the view out of the windows of your brand new Jeep® Grand Cherokee L, we wouldn't blame you.

JEEP® Wagoneer

Back from the dead comes the Jeep® Wagoneer for the 2022 model year. This 3rd-row Jeep® vehicle offers more passenger space than you've ever seen in a Jeep® model before. However, the impressiveness of its seating capacity is only the start. The seats in the Jeep® Wagoneer have an entire personality of their own, as they also come with comfort-enhancing features that will let you relax no matter your ultimate destination. Enjoy 12-way power-adjustable seats, allowing you to find the perfect configuration to keep you cozy for the entire ride.

The third row in the Jeep® Wagoneer isn't just a third row; it's a dynamic third row. You can adjust the space to suit you and your passengers' needs. If you only have one person in the third row, you can fold down the other seats to make a little extra room for cargo. You can lower the seats by one-quarter or fully fold them down to meet any and all of your cargo needs, whatever they may be.

Rumors indicate that the Jeep® Grand Wagoneer will also join the lineup of Jeep® models with 3rd-row seats. It will have even more to offer, with state-of-the-art 24-way power-adjustable seats with a massage feature as well as memory capability. Relaxation will be redefined with available quilted Palermo leather seating trims and sumptuous suede. There will be no other three-row SUVs that you'll want to go back to ever again - the Jeep® Wagoneer and Jeep® Grand Wagoneer have it all.

Explaining the Lack of Third-Row JEEP® Models

When you think about the Jeep® brand, what comes to your mind? Apart from the styles, you likely think about the legendary capability of each model. Every Jeep® model is optimized to perform just as perfectly off-road as they do on-road. Traditionally, three-row SUVs create a bit of a hindrance for off-roading capability. Having three rows usually means that you're going to be hauling kids or a lot of extra passengers, and it wouldn't be as sensible to go on off-roading forays when the car is packed with people. It could throw off the delicate balance of the vehicle and decrease the intended capability.

In addition, Jeep® models are designed to be more versatile than any other make or model out there. You can take the doors off, remove the top, and stow them all in the cargo area, if you want. With an extra row in the back, there would not be enough space to stow these parts of your vehicle, decreasing the utility of their unique features.


Which JEEP® models have seven seats?

The all-new 2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L is currently the only model that offers exactly seven seats, though there is a model that offers eight seats. So, if you're specifically looking for 7-seater Jeep® vehicles, this will be the one and only (for now)!

Which JEEP® models have eight seats?

The 2022 Jeep® Wagoneer offers a third row and seating for eight. Early concepts for the Jeep® Grand Wagoneer tell us that we can also expect a third row in it, likely meaning that it will be an eight-seater (or at least a seven-seater) as well.

Which JEEP® models have five seats?

Almost all Jeep® models sport five seats, aside from those that offer a third row of seats. This includes the Jeep® Gladiator, Jeep® Compass, Jeep® Cherokee, Jeep® Wrangler, and Jeep® Grand Cherokee. Five-seaters are far and away the standard for Jeep® vehicles, so you'll have no problem getting your hands on a capable and roomy vehicle that can seat five passengers.

Does the JEEP® Wrangler Unlimited have a third-row seat?

Currently, there is no Jeep® Wrangler model that comes directly from the factory with third-row seating. However, there are custom aftermarket kits available with which you can get your Jeep® Wrangler, or even other models, converted to an eight-seater.
