Jeep Grand Cherokee: Trim Levels & Engine Options

Because of the wide variety in availability for the 2021 model, you’re able to choose from an array of features, such as performance, premium features, and safety features.

Under the hood, the 2021 Grand Cherokee comes packed with a standard 295-horsepower 3.6L V6 engine, 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. There’s also an available 360-horsepower 5.7L V8 engine as well as an available 475-horsepower 6.4L V8, and an available 707-horsepower 6.2L V8.

Performance and Capability

You can expect the 2021 Grand Cherokee to average an EPA-estimated 19 city/26 highway MPG. But, if you’re using your Jeep with four-wheel drive, you’ll have an EPA-estimated 18 city/25 highway MPG instead.

If you’re worried about its off-road handling, you can rest easy.

It includes 36.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seating and 68.3 cubic feet with the seats folded up. If you’re in the front seat, it won’t be difficult to quickly find a comfortable driving position, and if you’re in the backseat, you’ll have more than enough space to wiggle and stretch if need be.

Despite its presence as a confident vehicular outdoorsman, the 2021 Grand Cherokee boasts several must-have infotainment features to keep you plugged into the world around you while on the road, and it does so with an acute sense of safety in mind. You’ll enjoy such features as:
