Once the new FCA Mack plant in Detroit is ready in this first quarter, Jeep will begin to manufacture the fifth generation of the Grand Cherokee in an L version for six or seven passengers, and consequently with a longer body as seen in the images, which will go on sale around the middle of the year. Then, towards the end of 2021, the version with only two rows and shorter bodywork is expected to arrive, as well as a hybrid 4xe version.
Measuring 5.20 meters long the new Jeep Grand Cherokee L 2021 has a design very similar to that of the Grand Wagoneer that was shown a few months ago, and as with that, the brand ensures that it is still a Jeep, with all that that implies in terms of its off-road capabilities.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L will have available the Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Drive II systems, the latter with an electronic limited-slip differential on the rear axle, and the Quadra-Lift air suspension can vary the height in five positions to give you up to 27.6 cm of ground clearance and a wading height of up to 60 cm. For its part, the traction system offers five driving modes: Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, and Mud / Sand.
Initially, there will be two engines available: the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 290 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque that will allow you to tow up to 2.8 tons. That capacity goes up to 3.2 tons if you choose the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine that produces 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, which also has four-cylinder deactivation to improve efficiency.

In the case of the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4XE hybrid I no ads at the moment but it is safer to share the mechanics with the Wrangler 4XE, ie that would match a 2.0 – liter turbocharged four-cylinder one I power to develop 375 horses of power and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Later it would not be unusual for us to see an SRT version.
