We were first introduced to the current generation Jeep Grand Cherokee all the way back in the summer of 2010, and despite going relatively unchanged for nine years, the Grand Cherokee remains a popular choice in its segment. By far the oldest vehicle in Jeep’s recently refreshed lineup, but the Grand Cherokee is set to be replaced for the 2021 model year. While few details are confirmed about the next-generation SUV, other than the fact that it’s growing in size, we have some information as to what the new truck’s interior will look like.
Thanks to thejeep_guy on Instagram, images have surfaced of a document detailing the interior changes coming for the 2021 Grand Cherokee. If you can look past its scrunched appearance, the Instagram post does offer up an early look as to what the new interior should look like. Take a seat in the upcoming Grand Cherokee, and the all-new four-spoke steering wheel and a 10.5-inch digital instrument panel will be the first things to catch your eye.

To the right of the driver sits an optional 10.1 inch Uconnect infotainment system (almost as big as the impressive touch screen in the Ram 1500 Limited) which joins the current line-up of 8.4- and 7.0-inch screens. Both smaller screen options will receive a new bezel treatment as well. A Ram-esque rotary dial replaces the current generation’s traditional console shifter, and the Terrain Select controller has also been redesigned for 2021.
Other changes to the interior will include new seat controls, door locks, window switches and an updated overhead console. While the second photo in thejeep_guy’s post is blurry, it does show the layout of the WL Grand Cherokee’s center stack, which looks much more expensive than the current model. Whether the upmarket appearance of the new interior is reflected in the 2021 Grand Cherokee’s price tag has yet to be confirmed.
