The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee has arrived in the United States for a base price of $31,684 for the lowest Laredo E trim and goes all the way to $54,842 for the top of the line Summit trim, which gets all the bells and whistles in terms of interior, exterior, and safety features. The Grand Cherokee still retains its 3.6L V6 motor mated to the 8-speed automatic transmission, which puts out a respectable 293 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Along with the eight trim options present for the Grand Cherokee, there is also the SRT and Trackhawk versions on offer, both of which are quite quick for a mid-size SUV. The Trackhawk version, which comes for an MSRP of $87,650, gets one of the most powerful motors ever to be fitted to a production SUV. This 707 hp V8 supercharged motor has been setting many racetracks around the world on fire too. With that said, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is here to compete with the likes of 2021 Kia Telluride, 2021 GMC Acadia, and 2021 Volkswagen Atlas, all of which quite compelling options in the mid-size SUV segment.

"The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers one of the most diverse lineups around for a midsize SUV."-Edmunds.com

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee gets one of the biggest lineups for any cars that are sold in the United States, which is an 8 trim lineup. All the trims come with a 3.6L V6 motor mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard. However, you can also opt for the more powerful 5.7L V8 motor with the Limited, Overland, High Altitude, and Summit trims, all of which come for an MSRP of $42,025, $48,756, $51,274, and $54,842, respectively.

Though the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee doesn't see any major changes from the outgoing 2020 model, it still retains all the interior, exterior, and safety features like leather upholstery, heated and electrically adjustable seats, UConnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, optional panoramic sunroof, optional automated emergency braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control, and many more too.  Along with that, the Trackhawk version of the 2021 Grand Cherokee, which is offered for an MSRP of $87,650 also comes with an even more thrilling 707 hp V8 motor coupled with all the bells and whistles in terms of features too.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Pricing and Features

7.3/10

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee line-up comprises 8 trims: Laredo E, Laredo X, Limited, 80th Anniversary, Trailhawk, Overland, High Altitude, and Summit. With a long list of trim levels on offer, Jeep makes sure that the new 2021 Grand Cherokee has something on offer for its wide array of clientele. The Trailhawk features 4WD as standard - every other trim is 2WD, with 4WD being an option. Apart from that, the Grand Cherokee still retains all the mechanical and interior features list of the outgoing 2020 model. However, a three-row L trim is said to make its debit in 2021 for a base MSRP of close to $40,000.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee gets a lot of standard interior features

When it comes to optional accessories and features, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes with 5-optional colors for an additional $245, a black tubular sidestep for $700, a powered sunroof for $1,295, and a host of optional packages like ProTech II, Premium Lighting Group, Security and Convenience Group, and Exterior Bright Accents Group for an MSRP of $875, $995, $2,000, and $325, respectively. All versions use the V6 engine by default, but the V8 can be equipped on 4WD versions (from the Limited trim and above) for $3,395, although this upgrade does increase to $3,895 on the range-topping Summit trim.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Buying Advice

The Limited trim of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which comes for an MSRP of $37,245 for the RWD version and $39,122 for the 4WD version seems to be the most value for money package of the lot since it comes with all the necessary interior, exterior, and safety features like post-collision safety system, automatic headlights, heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, 20-inch alloy wheels, and many more as standard. Along with that, you can also opt for the more powerful 5.7L V8 motor which produces 360 hp. In comparison, both the Atlas and Acadia are priced significantly higher than the Grand Cherokee, especially when looking at the features that come as standard.

"The standard V-6 should suit most buyers' needs, but for customers who want more grunt, Jeep offers a potent V-8."-Caranddriver.com

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and Limited trims get a 3.6L V6 engine with 293hp and 260lb-ft of torque. The pricier Trailhawk, Overland, and the Summit trims get a choice between two engines: a 295hp 3.6L V6 and an optional 360 hp 5.7L V-8 engine. The higher SRT trim is powered by a 6.4L 475hp V-8 engine with 470 lb-ft of torque.

The 3.6L V6 motor of the Grand Cherokee is quite torquey

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which comes for an MSRP of $87,915, is a beast with its famous 6.2L supercharged Hemi motor that outputs 707 hp and 645lb-ft torque. All the trims get an 8-speed automatic transmission and an optional 4WD system for an additional $2,000. 

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee does 0-60 MPH in under 7 seconds

The top of the line, 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with its 707 hp Hemi takes mere 3.5 seconds to do a 0-60 MPH run. Even the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the fastest of the mid-size SUV segment to sprint from 0-60 MPH and quarter-mile, taking just 6.7 seconds and 15.2 seconds, respectively. The 2021 Kia Telluride came to a second position with a 0-60 MPH time of 7.2 seconds, followed by the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas with 7.9 seconds.

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a classic boxy and rugged look to it that is entirely in tune with its on- and off-road abilities. The Chunky tires and seven-slot grille are classic Jeep traits, as are the pronounced wheel arches. The boxy design of the Grand Cherokee looks way better than the other SUVs. The higher Trackhawk trim, which comes at an MSRP of $87,915, gets even more exterior options like eight different shades to choose from, an additional 245 section BSW 20-inch tires for $895, and a blacked-out roof for $2,100.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee looks masculine

The lower trims like Limited and Laredo, both of which comes for an MSRP of $37,245 and $32,045, comes with many optional features and exterior packages like 20-inch polished alloy wheels for $1,995, black tubular side steps for $700, and 20-inch 265 section BSW tires too, all of which makes the Jeep Grand Cherokee one of the most elegant and butchy mid-size SUV of the segment.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Safety

7.1/10

The NHTSA's crash-test of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee yielded an overall five-star safety rating, with a four-star rating for the frontal crash. The IIHS' findings were less optimistic, though, where the Jeep had Good ratings for most tests but a Marginal result for the driver-side small overlap front test and a more concerning Poor score for the same test on the passenger side.

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee features an optional ProTech I package that provides Blind-spot monitoring, Rear cross-traffic protection, and a Rear parking camera with parking assist. The ProTech II provides Forward collision mitigation, Active brake assist, and Lane departure warning. The Advance Protech II provides additional safety with Adaptive cruise control, Perpendicular parking assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Besides all of this, there are 7 airbags for your safety inside the cabin. Hence, if you are planning to get the 2021 Grand Cherokee, do opt for all the optional safety packages and features, since the moniker losses out on many as standard.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2021 Kia Telluride

The Kia Telluride is one of the few midsize SUVs that can go toe-to-toe with the Grand Cherokee on a demanding off-road course. The 2021 Telluride comes in at a lower price tag of $31,990, undercutting the Grand Cherokee by close to $400.The Telluride also gets more standard interior and safety features as standard, along with better gas mileage. Though the 2021 Telluride is not as quick as the Grand Cherokee, it still is quite a capable performer, both on-roads as well as off-road.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2021 GMC Acadia

The 2021 GMC Acadia also ticks all the right boxes for a capable family SUV due to its spacious interior, impressive gas mileage, and rugged exterior styling. However, the Acadia feels quite lethargic due to the naturally aspirated 4-pot motor on offer, which is also the least powerful SUV of the segment. Coming in at an MSRP of $33,600, it is also pricier than the Grand Cherokee.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2021 Volkswagen Atlas

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas turned out to be one of the best offerings of the competitive mid-size SUV segment due to its excellent interior space coupled with adequate performance on offer from its turbocharged 4-pot motor. Due to its smaller engine capacity and much lower curb weight, the 2021 Atlas is more fuel-efficient too. Coming in at a base price of $31,555, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas manages to undercut the  Grand Cherokee in the pricing as well, making it more value for money than Jeep.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Final Verdict

8.0/10

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee impressed us with its rugged style and impeccable performance but lags when it comes to safety and fuel economy. While the Grand Cherokee was once a class leader, its age is starting to show as well. It's still sturdy and very off-road-capable, but we recommend upgrading from the standard V6 engine to one of the available V8 powertrains for a bit more gusto if you are moving forward with the decision of purchasing the Grand Cherokee. If not, we would recommend you to wait for the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, which would arrive in the United States later this year for a base price of close to $40,000.
