What Is the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
The five-seat Jeep Grand Cherokee has a reputation for combining comfort with true all-terrain prowess. The Jeep image alone is a draw, but the Grand Cherokee manages to back up the off-road bravado — especially in Trailhawk form.
If you want something for everyday commuting, the standard 293-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine is perfectly up to the task. If you want more power, the Grand Cherokee offers an optional 360-hp, 5.7-liter V-8.
For anyone who wants muscle-car performance in an SUV, there are 475-hp SRT and 707-hp Trackhawk models available. They deliver not just loads of driving thrills, but also a hefty price premium over the rest of the lineup. All engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Grand Cherokee competitors include the Toyota 4Runner, Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe.

Jeep’s Uconnect multimedia system, however, remains the usability benchmark.
