2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Breaks Ground in the Full-size SUV Segment




Nearly 30 years ago, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee began its legacy as the most awarded SUV in history. Today, following 4 generations of the vehicle, the Jeep brand reenters the full-size SUV segment with the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

The newest iteration is designed and engineered to deliver an unmatched combination of even more 4x4 capability, superior on-road refinement, premium styling and craftsmanship inside and out, and a host of advanced safety and technology features.

Its renowned 4x4 systems, air suspension and traction management system instill Grand Cherokee L with the Jeep brand’s legendary 4x4 capability. An all-new architecture and sculpted aerodynamic body style combine to improve vehicle performance, safety and reliability, while significantly reducing vehicle weight, noise, vibration and harshness.

Designed to maximize overall passenger safety, comfort and convenience, Grand Cherokee L packs a powerful punch with features and technologies that make it a stand out in the full-size SUV segment. 

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L will arrive in Jeep dealerships in the second quarter of 2021 and will be available in 4 different trim configurations.

Legendary off-road capability begins courtesy of 3 different 4x4 systems. On top of the Quadra-Trac I and Quadra-Trac II systems, the Quadra-Drive II, with a 2-speed active transfer case and rear eLSD, delivers industry-leading tractive capability. The system instantly detects tire slip and smoothly reacts distributing engine torque to tires with traction. In some cases, the vehicle will anticipate low traction and pre-emptively adjust in order to limit or eliminate tire slip.

The Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension with electronic adaptive damping delivers class-leading ground clearance and water fording. The system automatically adjusts the shock tuning to changing road conditions for enhanced comfort, stability and control. Quadra-Lift adds up to 106 mm of lift span supported by 4-corner air springs that provide an air cushioned, premium ride. The crawl ratio on the Grand Cherokee L is 44:1.

With the available Quadra-Lift air suspension, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L features a 30.1° approach angle, a 23.6° departure angle and 22.6° breakover angle.

The 2021 Grand Cherokee L’s class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system lets customers choose the on- and off-road setting for optimum 4x4 performance. This feature electronically coordinates up to 6 different powertrains, 4x4 torque split, braking and handling, steering and suspension systems, including throttle control, transmission shift, transfer case and traction control, stability control, anti-lock braking system (ABS) and steering feel. 

For the first time ever on Grand Cherokee, the front axle is bolted directly to the engine to allow for better management of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and superior driving dynamics thanks in part to its lower center of gravity. New active/electronic engine mounts absorb more vibration and movement when at idle, but stiffen at higher speeds to optimize ride glide. This is a new feature available on Grand Cherokee and offers a new level of comfort, versatility and performance. An enhanced active noise cancellation system, along with a double-dash body, door seals and acoustic glass round out the enhancements that bring NVH and wind noise down to a whisper.

The standard engine is a 3.6 l V6, rated at 290 hp. Buyers who want more power can opt for a 5.7 l V8, rated at 357 hp.

The vehicle’s 3,091 mm wheelbase creates generous interior room and gives passengers expansive legroom in the second row. When the 2nd and 3rd row seats are folded flat, the maximum cargo space is 2395 l.
