2021 is shaping up to be a banner year for the Jeep brand. In just one calendar cycle, the automaker will launch two thrilling new powertrains for the legendary Jeep Wrangler and a three-row version of the ever-popular Jeep Grand Cherokee. But this year's most exciting news for the Jeep lineup in 2021 is perhaps the reintroduction of the iconic family SUV, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Here's a quick rundown of the newest Jeep additions expected this year.

Grand Cherokee L

It's been a long time coming, but Jeep once again has a three-row family option (well, three, counting the two Wagoneer models discussed below). For the 2021 model year, Jeep will be selling the all-new Grand Cherokee L alongside the standard two-row Grand Cherokee. Then, Jeep will transition the nameplate to the new architecture for 2022, dropping the L designation and offering both two- and three-row variants. Jeep got a lot of mileage out of the fourth-generation Grand Cherokee (a whole decade, to be exact), and the time is finally right to launch the highly-anticipated fifth-generation model. It features a thoroughly refreshed and modernized cabin, premium materials, tons of technological advancements, and a bold new style.

Wrangler 4xe and Rubicon 392

It's no secret that Jeep has a penchant for pushing the envelope. The brand also loves to have fun and lots of it. Just look at that Grand Cherokee's blacktop-burning, V8-powered SRT and Trackhawk variants, which churn out a jaw-dropping 470 and 707 horsepower, respectively. But those models are focused on track performance, while the Jeep brand's reputation is more adventure-oriented. So, naturally, people began to wonder if a V8 leviathan would eventually find its way under the hood of the most intrepid off-roader on the market, the Jeep Wrangler.

Yes. The answer is yes. And not just one, but two:

  • Wrangler 4xe: A plug-in hybrid Wrangler? While the idea of an environmentally friendly hybrid Wrangler may raise a few eyebrows, the 4xe's performance should be enough to quell any concerns. The 4xe combines a 2.0L turbo-four with two electric motors to produce 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of near-instantaneous torque. It's also impressively efficient, achieving a manufacturer-estimated 50 MPGe, 500-mile total range, and 25-mile all-electric range. 4xe models feature a Rock-Trac® 4×4 system with two-speed transfer case and 4:1 low-range gear ratio.

  • Rubicon 392: It's exactly what enthusiasts have been waiting for: a Jeep Wrangler powered by the same 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 found under the hood of the Grand Cherokee SRT. With a monumental 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque running to the Selec-Trac 4x4 system, the Rubicon 392 roars from zero to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.

Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer

The original luxury family SUV is back. When it first launched in 1963, the Jeep Wagoneer set itself apart from competitors by offering a more comfortable and carlike on-road ride-quality, with features like a quasi-double-wishbone independent front suspension. In 1966 it added numerous amenities that were downright luxurious for the time, like air conditioning, seat belts, power steering, a padded dash, and a push-button radio. Over the course of its three-decade run, The Wagoneer spawned several variants, including the Grand Wagoneer, which would become the "gold standard of SUVs."

Later this year, both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will make their triumphant returns to the market, bringing the Jeep brand to new heights of luxury, capability, convenience, and technology. The two models are mechanically similar, with the Grand Wagoneer offering an even more luxurious experience. Highlights include:

  • 5.7-liter V-8 powerplant (392 horsepower) matched with a 48-volt hybrid system
  • Up to a 10,000-pound max tow rating
  • Standard Dinamica microfiber fully recyclable suede upholstery, 12-way power front seats, ambient lighting, and tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Nearly 45-inches of screen real-estate for the Grand Wagoneer (12.3-inch driver information display; 12.1-inch horizontal infotainment touchscreen; 10.25-inch horizontal cabin control display; 10.25-in passenger screen)
  • Wagoneer comes standard with a 10.1-inch infotainment display and 10.3-inch driver information display, and offers an available 10.3-inch passenger screen.
  • Standard advanced driver aids like collision mitigation, lane-keeping, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control
