2021 Jeep Cherokee
We'll begin by discussing the Cherokee, the smallest of the three options. This compact SUV offers 5 seats as well as 25.8 cubic feet of cargo space in its rear. Its rear section can also be collapsed to so as to provide 27.6 cubic feet of cargo space. There are 5 Cherokee trims available in 2021. We'll discuss them all in detail below. 

The Cherokee Latitude is the base model of the Cherokee's trims. This trim is stocked with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and can produce up to 180 horsepower. As far as fuel efficiency goes, it gets 31 miles to the gallon on the highway and 22 miles to the gallon in the city. Towing capacity for the Latitude is 2,000 pounds, meaning that it can be used to tow small trailers. It's also a solid off-roading vehicle, providing a smooth ride regardless of the terrain. 

Latitude Plus
As far as its road performances goes, the Latitude Plus is the same as the Latitude. However, when it comes to special features, it's quite the upgrade. Not only does it provide fog lights, heated front seats, a heating steering wheel, and a power-adjusted driver's seat, but it also offers satellite radio, several USB ports, remote starting capabilities, and keyless entry. If you want, you can get it with a 4-wheel drive and a sunroof, not to mention an improved speaker system. This trim is essentially a more luxurious version of the Latitude. 

Latitude LUX
The Latitude LUX is an upgrade from the Latitude Plus, possessing enhancements in both style and performance. It's stocked with a V6 engine, though for an additional fee, you can upgrade it with a turbocharged V4. In its standard configuration, it reaches up to 270 horsepower and can tow up to 2,000 pounds. It also comes with leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, and options for enhanced infotainment and climate control systems. There's also an option to add the Active Drive 4x4 system, which enables you to optimize your driving experience whether on the road or on rough terrain. 

The Cherokee Limited offers the same road performance as the Latitude LUX. However, it offers several special features in addition. These features include a power liftgate, a panoramic sunroof, automatic high-beams, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a bevy of additional safety features, and an Alpine speaker system. There are a few optional features as well, including a WiFi hotspot, heated second-row seats, and ventilated front seats. Call us today to hear the full extent of your options. 

The Trailhawk is specifically designed for off-roading. As such, it's equipped with all-terrain tires, a skid plate, a special suspension, and a 4-wheel drive system. You have the option to add other features for additional fees. 

2021 Grand Cherokee
Up next is the Grand Cherokee, a mid-size SUV containing 5 seats. This model is a little roomier than the Cherokee, offering increased cargo space in its rear and increased legroom in its passenger area. The Grand Cherokee is available in 7 trims. These include the following:

The base trims are the Laredo E and Laredo X. These trims come stocked with a V6 engine and supply up to 295 horsepower. They can tow up to 3,500 pounds while getting 26 miles to the gallon on the highway and 19 miles to the gallon in the city. Where the two differ is in their features. The Laredo X is essentially an upgrade from the Laredo E.

Both trims possess Bluetooth, satellite radio, and two USB ports. Other features include push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, cloth upholstery, and a bevy of safety features. The X offers a larger touchscreen as well as a WiFi hotspot and leather upholstery, to name just a few upgrades. 

The Limited trim offers essentially the same road performance as the Laredo X. Where it differs is in its sunroof, its genuine leather upholstery, and its additional USB ports. There are also some additional safety features available. 

If you're looking for an off-roading trim, you should consider the Trailhawk. This trim offers all the features of the Cherokee Trailhawk, but with the increased size and power of the Grand Cherokee. Note, if you wish, you can get it with a V8 engine instead of the V6. The V8 engine produces up to 360 horsepower. 

The Overland is available with both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. It comes with a V6 engine, though can be upgraded to include an V8 engine if desired. Other features of this trim include 20-inch wheels, automatic high-beams, automatic windshield wipers, heated rear seats, and ventilated rear seats. 

High Altitude 
The High Altitude combines with Overland's road performance with several added features. These features include lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and automatic emergency braking. It's available with both rear-wheel and 4-wheel drive. If you wish, you can enhance the High Altitude with a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. 

The SRT is known for its power capabilities. Equipped with a 475-horsepower V8 engine and 4-wheel drive, it excels on all terrains. To help it remain stable on those rocky roads, it comes stocked with a high-performance suspension and high-performance brakes. 

If you want a gargantuan amount of power, you should opt for the Trackhawk. This trim produces up to 707 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful vehicles on the market today. Apart from this, it has the same features as the SRT. 

2021 Jeep Gladiator
The Gladiator is more of a truck. Though its look is similar to those of the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, it comes with a bed, giving it substantial amounts of cargo space. However, like the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, it has 5 seats. There are quite a few Gladiator trims, including the following. 

The base trim is the Sport. This trim comes with a 285-horsepower V6 engine, giving it a good amount of power for a vehicle of its size. Other features included on the Sport are satellite radio, an 8-speaker sound system, two USB ports, Bluetooth capabilities, and cloth upholstery. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it gets the job done. 

Willys Sport 
The Willys sport offers identical road performance to the Sport. However, it's different in that it contains flame decals, mud-terrain tires, rock rails, and other such features. 

Sport S
The Sport S is remarkably like the Sport. The difference is that it contains a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, power windows, and keyless entry, as well as a variety of other features. You can also add a variety of other features, including remote start, heated seats, automatic high-beams, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking. 

The Overland has all the same features as the Sport S. However, it also provides a 9-speaker system, a navigation system, 18-inch wheels, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. If you wish, you can add LED lights and fog lights for an additional fee. 

The Rubicon is an off-roading trim. It contains the performance features of the Sport S but enhances them with the help of a high-impact suspension system as well as all-terrain tires. Other features including locking axles and rock rails. 

The Mojave is a desert-themed trim designed to, well, drive in the desert. It's similar to the Rubicon but contains a higher suspension. Not to mention, it's covered in decorative decals. Most of the Mojave's other features are similar to that of the Sport S. 

High Altitude
The High Altitude is the most well-equipped trim of the Gladiator. It contains similar features to the Sport S but also provides leather seats, LED lights, 20-inch wheels, and a navigation system. Additional features include blind-spot monitoring and keyless entry, to name just two.
