2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee
- Vehicle Overview
- Technical Specifications
Your Grand Cherokee will come with a V-6 unless you opt for the V-8, available only on Limited trims and above.
The base engine pulls strongly and transmits very little vibration into the cabin, so it's the powerplant we prefer. Although we haven't yet driven the all-new three-row Grand Cherokee L, the V-6 has proven to be well matched to the two-row Grand Cherokee's heft, and it does an admirable job of motivating this SUV around town and on the highway. No matter the configuration, the Grand Cherokee has brawny towing capacity—6200 pounds for V-6 models, 7200 pounds with the V-8—that kicks its usefulness up another notch. We have driven the older two-row model extensively and can tell you that there's nothing sporty about it.
