- the 2021 jeep grand cherokee will be on sale in the spring, and the two-row model and a plug-in hybrid are debuting later this year.
the jeep grand cherokee is now in its fifth generation, and it's being introduced with a three-row l model. the two-row version of the new suv won't be unveiled until later this year, and jeep will also announce a plug-in hybrid 4xe model at that time.
the grand cherokee l will be available as base laredo, limited, overland, and summit models, which can get more luxurious with an available summit-exclusive package. a 3.6-liter pentastar v-6 is standard with two-wheel drive on all four models, though all- or four-wheel drive is available across the board. a more powerful 5.7-liter v-8 is available on the overland and summit models and comes standard equipped with four-wheel drive. here's what's available on each of those models:
