The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a lot to live up to in this model year. 2021 marks the 80th Anniversary of the Jeep brand, and all of its models are expected to show all of the best that the brand has to offer. The 2021 Grand Cherokee has 10 available trims to choose from, one of which includes the special 80th Anniversary edition exclusive to the 2021 year. This model shows that Jeep is committed to its customers by providing options to suit any driver. Not to mention, this Jeep keeps its core of being able to go over any terrain. After all, Jeep is known for its ability to travel off-road, and the 2021 Grand Cherokee is ready to face any challenge you throw at it.

What to Look For in the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee has entered the market with the goal of offering an enhanced driving experience from performance technology to innovations in safety. To put it simply, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a lot of different factors that make it distinctly unique for a Jeep Grand Cherokee and as an SUV in general. With such a new design, drivers can expect upgraded safety features, connected infotainment, and that classic Jeep flair that drivers love.


The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is ready for your next adventure with an impressive towing and payload capacity. The Grand Cherokee can tow a maximum of 7,200 lbs when properly equipped, and has a maximum payload capacity of 1,350 lbs. At its heart, this model is still a Jeep, which means that it needs to be ready for wherever you may go and whatever you need to bring with you there. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee can handle many trailers with ease, making the vehicle more versatile in both work that requires heavier equipment and increasing cargo capacity.

In addition, the Grand Cherokee also has available 4×4 capability with a Quadra-Lift Air Suspension system and trail-rated ground clearance. With such capabilities, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is now better equipped to tackle off-road terrain and other difficult road conditions that would give smaller vehicles trouble. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is far more well-rounded than it has been in the past, able to handle off-roading in the mountains, long road trips across the country, and any level of heavy lifting needed in a wide variety of different jobs.

The 6.2L V8 Engine

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk gives drivers the 6.2L V8 engine, the most powerful engine in the Jeep lineup. This engine goes hand in hand with the trim that is designed for the best off-roading experience of them all. This powerful engine puts out an impressive 707 horsepower and an astounding 645 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, you can accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds. This engine comes coupled with Brembo brakes to help offset its power. These brakes ensure that you can stop with confidence.

Interior Technology

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is also ready to keep you connected while you are on the road (or the trails). The implementation of a new touchscreen system that makes for an easier experience accessing driving assistance features and smartphone connectivity increases for easier usage of mobile phones in the vehicle. This also comes in addition to several optional features like a WIFI hotspot that provides a stable connection to the internet for passengers in the vehicle.

While increased connectivity is always a good thing, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee also enhanced their SUV with technology by allowing your phone to interact with the SUV itself. Using your phone as a remote, you’re able to both start your car remotely and locate it using tracking installed in the vehicle itself. This means that the days of losing your car in a crowded parking lot are officially over, not to mention the safety benefits of being able to track your car. Most vehicles that can be tracked remotely are recovered when stolen, meaning that even in the unfortunate event of your SUV being stolen, you’ll be able to help the police recover it. This is in addition to a monthly maintenance report, which will tell you every time your vehicle is in desperate need of maintenance.
