The current-generation (fourth to be exact) Jeep Grand Cherokee model arrived on the scene circa 2010. Although automotive experts often side-eye the SUV for its age, the Grand Cherokee remains a heavily popular choice for many buyers. In fact, Jeep actually sold a total of 242,969 units of the Grand Cherokee in 2019 — making it the best year for what’s often written off as an aging SUV. Jeep debuted the Grand Cherokee L — the first of its kind with a third row — earlier in 2021, but the next-generation Grand Cherokee is still pending. The brand’s made several adjustments to the current lineup, here’s what buyers can expect from the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

New for 2021:

  • Grand Cherokee Laredo X features the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen with navigation, remote start, a power liftgate, vinyl/suede interior, heated front seats, and heated leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Sun and Sound Package is now available on the Grand Cherokee Limited trim, it includes a dual-pane sunroof and nine-speaker audio system.
  • Grand Cherokee Laredo now features standard 18-inch painted machine cast aluminum wheels
  • 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited X trim features all Gloss Black exterior details and accents
  • 80th Anniversary Edition Jeep Grand Cherokee with special commemorative badging, an exclusive paint palette, Light Tungsten accents, leather upholstery with accent stitching, and more

Even though Jeep didn’t have that many features to add before this generation says goodbye, they did add a special Grand Cherokee to the lineup to celebrate the brand’s 80th anniversary. It’ll feature 18-inch Granite Crystal wheels, along with commemorative exterior badging, along with other features. On the inside, buyers can find there’s leather upholstery, as well as Light Tungsten accents throughout the cabin. Looking back, Jeep pretty much matched what they delivered on the previous 75th Anniversary models just five years ago.

Jeep also included its ProTech II Package as a standard on the 80th Anniversary Edition Grand Cherokee. The package offers a suite of safety features including LaneSense Lane Departure Warning With Lane Keep Assist, Advanced Brake Assist, and Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning With Active Braking. Other features, such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Perpendicular Park Assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers are also included with the ProTech II Package. 

The Grand Cherokee Limited trim now includes an optional  Sun and Sound Package, which features a nine-speaker audio system and a dual-pane sunroof. Meanwhile, the Grand Cherokee Limited X trim carries over to 2021 and adds a menacing all gloss black exterior detailing. After not including the Limited X trim on the previous year’s lineup, Jeep brings it back with a vengeance and includes features such as an 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen display, a power rear liftgate, front seat heaters, and a vinyl and suede interior. The steering wheel is not only wrapped in leather but it’s heated as well. As for the standard Laredo trim, it now offers 18-inch painted machine cast-aluminum wheels for the 2021 model year. 

Once the new generation Grand Cherokee arrives, it’ll have big shoes to fill as the model remains one of Jeep’s best-sellers and the market for SUVs doesn’t look like it’s cooling off any time soon.  Visit us at Miami Lakes AutoMall to get behind the wheel of the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee.
