FCA added lots of new bits and options to the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee has lots of new additions to keep the decade-old model fresh. For the new model year, FCA added new trim options, colors, electronics, wheels and upgraded packages. Among the trim changes is an 80th Anniversary Edition which is based on the top-end Limited model. It comes with unique interior and exterior upgrades.

Seven trims are available for the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. These trims carry over from prior years, including the base Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT and Trackhawk. The same engine and transmission choices remain, as do the various 4X4/AWD systems.
