FCA Canada: 2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Fact Sheet

Windsor, Ontario August 31, 2020 - Jeep® Grand Cherokee is the most awarded SUV ever and the vehicle that has long defined what a premium SUV should be. Legendary Jeep capability comes courtesy of four available 4x4 systems, Jeep’s Quadra-Lift air suspension system and class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system. Grand Cherokee boasts best-in-class towing of 3,266 kilograms (7,200 pounds) and a crawl ratio of 44.1:1.

For 2021, the Grand Cherokee lineup continues to offer a variety of models, including the Trackhawk, the most powerful and quickest SUV ever, as well as the most capable factory-produced and most luxurious Grand Cherokee models ever with the Trailhawk and Summit.

Grand Cherokee’s exterior design – complete with available bi-xenon headlamps with signature LED daytime running lamps (DRL) – provides a premium appearance. Grand Cherokee SRT and Trackhawk models feature an aggressive, functional exterior design that optimizes airflow and cooling with the signature seven-slot upper front grille flanked by bi-xenon headlamps.

  • All Jeep Grand Cherokee engines are paired to the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. In addition to enhancing fuel economy, the robust and durable eight-speed transmission delivers quick acceleration and precise, smooth shifting, enhancing ride quality to luxury car levels
  • Grand Cherokee SRT and Trackhawk models feature five dynamic drive modes that allow owners the ability to personalize their drive experience whether it’s on the road or on the track. The drive modes separately control the four-wheel-drive system, transmission, paddle shifters, stability control, suspension and steering. Drive Modes are pre-configured for Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow settings via a switch on the centre console, while the custom setting lets the driver customize the drive experience to their favourite settings:
    • Auto — Automatically adapts to any condition; uses a 40/60 rear torque split
    • Sport — Transmission shift times are reduced by 50 per cent versus Auto mode; stability control, four-wheel-drive and steering systems are set for the typical enthusiast driving style; paddle shifters are enabled; the suspension is tightened without increasing impact harshness to deliver increased vehicle performance capability over Auto mode; uses 35/65 torque split
    • Track — Transmission shift times are reduced 68 per cent to 160 milliseconds versus Auto mode; stability control, four-wheel-drive and steering systems are set for ultimate track performance; paddle shifters are enabled; the suspension is set to full firm to deliver maximum vehicle performance capability on smooth, dry surfaces; uses 30/70 torque split
    • Tow — Alters torque delivery off the line for greater smoothness and adjusts suspension to combat pitch and yaw to deliver maximum towing performance; uses 60/40 torque split
    • Snow — Maximizes traction to deliver optimized performance on snow with reduced engine horsepower; uses 50/50 torque split
  • Standard launch control mimics a professional driver’s inputs to optimize Grand Cherokee SRT and Trackhawk’s performance by bringing engine, transmission, driveline, stability control and suspension in line for a textbook launch. Controlled by a button on the centre console, the result is improved and more consistent straight-line acceleration
  • Quadra-Drive II with a rear Electronic Limited Slip Differential (ELSD) delivers industry-leading tractive capability. The system instantly detects tire slip and smoothly distributes engine torque to tires with traction. In some cases, the vehicle will anticipate low traction and adjust to proactively limit or eliminate slip
  • Selec-Speed Control with Hill-ascent and Hill-descent Control allows drivers to control Grand Cherokee’s speed both up and down steep, rugged grades with the steering wheel paddle shifters – without the need for throttle or brake input. Unique to its segment, Grand Cherokee Hill-descent Control also works when the vehicle is in reverse
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee includes more than 70 safety and security features, as well as an array of advanced user-friendly technology features, such as the latest version of the award-winning Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen radio with standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, integrated climate and infotainment controls and a 7-inch customer-configurable multi-view display cluster
