2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee “L”: official pictures…

I have to say, this is a great surprise. At first, I was a bit bothered by that rear chrome line that resembles the cheaper Compass. But it actually looks good on the new Grand Cherokee. 
the longer proportions of the 3-row version also seem to work really well. the whole thing doesn’t look too stretched out.
The whole design seems pretty sophisticated and upscale. An that interior is really nice. And, no stupid tablet! Everything is integrated very well, as it should be. 
I think this is much nicer than the Grand Wagoneer concept we saw a while ago…
The base engine is the good old 3.6 Liter V6 with 290HP.
Until a couple of days ago, I had heard rumors about the V8 being replaced by a new V6 Turbo option.
Which was actually all wrong.
A 5.7 Liter V8 with 357HP is still an option. A plug-in hybrid version is also coming later.
The V6 and V8 versions will be available in the spring.
So far this looks great. I think once the hybrid is available, it will actually be competing with tons of stuff. From the Land Rover Discovery to the Lexus RX. 
it has been a while, but the Jeep Grand Cherokee seems to be back with a vengeance.
Good for them…

  1. This is pretty nice. I haven't been this impressed with an FCA product since the Pacifica. Makes the Explorer look like a dumpster. Hopefully it will be a hit for them, even with the economy in shambles.

  2. Looks pretty great IMO. I wasn't crazy about the chrome trim on the D pillar, but it probably does help hide the extra bulk in back. The five seat version should be a looker and having two models was a smart move. The new Ram looks plain in pictures but really nice in person and I think this will too.

  3. agree with you, it's a nice surprise. Beautiful design inside and out, a nice evolution from the current vehicle. Looks like it has a heads up display as well. the only negative thing that stands out is the glove box, in all pictures it looks like a big piece of plastic from the old car, the gaps to the other panels are larger and the latch looks plasticky.

    on the engines.. surprised Jeep didn't include the mild-hybrid option they have on the wrangler and RAM trucks, it would have improved gas mileage… perhaps this is the plan for year 2 or 3 of the model.

    interesting how this will compare with a Kia Telluride or Hyundai Palisade, they're all roughly the same size, 3 rows, full of tech, etc. Most Grand Cherokees are family haulers and never go offroad, so the "trail rated" thing won't matter.. just the image.

  4. I'm not a Jeep fan but have to applaud them on the interior. It's simple, sophisticated and simply beautiful.

    Kudos Jeep, great job 🙂

  5. This 3-row L model looks so right! I wonder if the shorter, regular 5-seater Grand Cherokee will look as good. And the interior is WOW!!! Certainly Jeep has another winner!

  6. Looks good, and I hope the fit and finish of production units is better than FCA models have been.

  7. Looks great. Trying to figure out what the small buttons are near the passenger side door handle in the tan interior shot. Could it be seat preset buttons?
