What do we know about the all-new 2021 Grand Cherokee?

It will be completely new, built off the Giorgio platform that underpins Alfa Romeo's Stelvio and Guilia.  Although these vehicles aren't known for their off-road capabilities, they drive exceptionally well and have fantastic handling. If you don't believe me, take on for a ride. The Jeep engineers do 'off road' better than anyone, so we can be guaranteed that they will be fully capable, with Trail Rated versions.

2021 Engine Choices

It's a safe bet that the standard engine will be the 2.0L Turbo which is now standard in the Wrangler for 2020. This engine delivers better fuel economy than the Pentastar 3.6L V6 (which will become optional), and is more fun to drive, with similar 0-60 times, but the turbo four feels livelier and more responsive. Other optional engines will likely include a plug-in hybrid from the Pacifica, and a Hemi, as well as high-performance engines for SRT versions.

3.0L Inline Six Rumors…  This engine is supposedly under development as a high-performance engine to one day replace the Hemi motors as a performance alternative.  It is unconfirmed that this engine will be available for the launch of the next-generation of the Grand Cherokee, but will likely be introduced later in the product cycle.

People say 'Wrangler is Jeep,' and they are right from a marketing viewpoint. It's the quintessential representation of the Jeep Brand. But I would argue that the Grand Cherokee is at least as important to Jeep, and we expect that the redesign we be taken very seriously.

There will likely be larger screens available than the current 8.4". A 10.1 inch screen will likely be available in higher trim series.

Maybe the biggest news for the 2021 Grand Cherokee is that there will be a 7 passenger version available for the first time ever!
