The approaching 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee will host numerous upgrades. That includes dimensional changes, along with further cosmetic and interior improvements. Grand Cherokee is currently the oldest model in Jeep’s lineup. The current generation is present for eight years now. The sales are good, especially in Canada. This SUV competes in the mid-size segment, and it leads the race in front of the Hyundai Santa Fe and Nissan Murano.
Ford Edge and Kia Sorento are also in the competition. And as the SUV segment is getting hotter, customers are going crazy about the latest tech features. The FCA will undoubtedly provide further updates in this category. If you want performance, the luxury Grand Cherokee Trackhawk variant is everything you could ever wish for.

New spy shots are showing a camouflaged prototype being tested on the road. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee will grow in size. The mid-size SUV will arrive with a longer wheelbase as well. On top of that, the rear overhang is more prominent which should provide more interior room for cargo and passengers. However, the two-row seating layout will largely remain.
Still, Jeep plans to develop a three-row variant shortly. In terms of styling, the exterior will be updated for sure. However, don’t expect revolutionary changes or anything similar. The 2021 Grand Cherokee will get thinner headlamps, and iconic seven-slot grille will be refreshed. Still, the most significant changes will happen inside the cabin.
When it comes to a number of upgrades, the interior will surely get the most of them. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee will surely offer an all-new 12-inch touchscreen. The same unit can be found inside the Ram 1500 pickup. On top of that, the interior room is improved as well. That means the occupants will enjoy more legroom than ever before. We already mentioned two significant upgrades.
The third one is still not confirmed, but it is very likely. According to numerous reports, FCA is working on a three-row Grand Cherokee. Installing the third row will surely make Jeep to reorganize a complete interior. Furthermore, the three-row Grand Cherokee will be optional. That means the five-seat passenger layout remains as standard.
What About Performances?
At least one thing will remain, and that’s the engine options. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee will continue in terms of performances.

Standard V6 produces 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Optional V8 is good for 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of twist.
A 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 is rumored, along with the Wrangler’s eTorque mild hybrid system. Only the time will tell if the rumors are true, but both engines have solid chances to be included in the offer. Finally, the real performance comes out from Grand Cherokee SRT and its 6.2-liter V8. This engine is producing up to 707 horses and 645 lb-ft of torque.
