Overview

How Much Does a 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Cost?

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5-seater midsize SUV is available in seven main trim levels. Laredo ($33,845) comes standard with 17-in alloy wheels, keyless entry/ignition, automatic on/off headlights, fog lights, heated mirrors, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic dual-zone climate control, cloth upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, 7-in infotainment touchscreen, two USB ports, auxiliary audio input, and a 6-speaker sound system. The Laredo E sub-trim adds an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and roof rails. The Laredo X sub-trim brings a Uconnect 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, navigation, HD radio, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, powered liftgate, remote start, and a remote garage door opener. Limited ($41,651) comes with a self-dimming driver’s-side mirror, driver’s-side memory settings, leather upholstery, 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration. A Luxury Group package adds a panoramic sunroof, automatic wipers, bi-xenon headlights, LED fog lamps, automatic high beams, ventilated front seats, power-adjustable steering column, and a 9-speaker Alpine sound system. The main details on the Limited X trim are special gloss black exterior accents and some styling elements from the Summit and SRT trim levels. Trailhawk ($46,850) gets off-road hardware such as model-specific 18-in wheels and all-terrain tires, air suspension, full-size spare wheel, special styling elements (like red recovery hooks), power-folding side mirrors, leather/simulated suede upholstery, and a 9-speaker Alpine sound system.   The Trailhawk comes standard with the Quadra-Drive II all-wheel drive system, which includes an electronic limited-slip rear differential. Much of the Trailhawk’s off-road-specific equipment is available in the Laredo, Limited, and Overland trim levels through options packages. Overland ($48,190) essentially has all of the Limited’s Luxury Group equipment, plus an air suspension, 20-in alloy wheels, special styling and upgraded leather upholstery. A ProTech II package includes full-speed forward collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking, lane departure/lane-keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control with stop/go, rain-sensing wipers, and parallel/perpendicular parking assistance. Summit ($54,190) builds on the Overland, adding active noise cancellation, more luxurious styling elements, upgraded leather upholstery in trim-specific colors, 19-speaker/825-watt Harman Kardon audio system (available as an upgrade in the Overland), and the driver aids in the ProTech II package. The Tow Package comes standard in Summits and Overlands with all-wheel drive. The performance-oriented SRT ($70,640) is similarly equipped, but emphasizes on-road performance. It has the 6.4-liter V8, lowered suspension with adaptive dampers, high-performance all-season tires, special styling, and leather/simulated suede upholstery. The Trackhawk ($89,145) adds the ballistic 707-hp supercharged V8 engine and launch control. A full leather interior is available as an option in both high-performance models. Rear-wheel drive is standard in all Grand Cherokee trims except the Trailhawk, SRT, and Trackhawk. The all-wheel drive systems on offer require some explanation. Laredo trims feature the Quadra-Trac I single-speed AWD setup. This can be upgraded to the Quadra-Trac II setup bringing a 2-speed transfer case for greater off-road ability. It’s the default system in the Limited and Overland trims. The Quadra-Drive II system adds an electronic limited-slip rear differential — it’s optional in Limited, Overland, and Summit trims, standard in the Trailhawk. Every all-wheel drive system includes Jeep’s Selec-Terrain system, which alters engine response and gearshift points for different conditions. It also comes with hill descent and hill ascent controls.

Is the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee a Safe Car?

The Grand Cherokee features a rearview camera, anti-lock brakes, and six airbags (front, front side, and full-length side curtain). Driver aids on offer include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and rain-sensing wipers.   In crash tests carried out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the rear-drive Grand Cherokee scored four stars out of five overall, with five stars for front and side protection. The Grand Cherokee with all-wheel drive picked up a 5-star rating, thanks to its greater rollover resistance. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Grand Cherokee its top rating of Good in all major categories, except the more recently introduced small overlap front crash test, where it was deemed Marginal, the institute’s second-worst rating. Compared with the competition, these scores could be better, and they’re indicative of the Grand Cherokee’s aging platform.

Competition

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs the competition

2021 Toyota 4Runner — The 4Runner is the Grand Cherokee’s closest competitor. Each offer great off-road capability, but the 4Runner skews toward youth. The Grand Cherokee emphasizes luxury. The 4Runner is also more reliable and enjoys better resale values. 2021 Dodge Durango — A 7-seater based on the same platform as the Grand Cherokee, but far more suited to on-road driving than getting muddy with its Jeep cousin. It’s a viable alternative for a Mopar fan who wants three rows of seats. 2021 Land Rover Discovery — Comparable with the Grand Cherokee’s most luxurious trims, the Discovery brings go-anywhere capability, plus greater interior space. It’s so much more modern and sophisticated. Used Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class — Born in the old DaimlerChrysler era, the Grand Cherokee is mechanically related to an earlier-generation GLE-Class. Mercedes-Benz’s midsize SUV has great powertrain options, superb build quality, and a high-class ambiance. A used GLE-Class should be well within the price range of a new Grand Cherokee.
