2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review – Is Grand Cherokee L much better SUV compared to Hyundai Palisade?

Hi, guys! For this Sunday’s update, we have the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee review. Our tester is Summit trim, Long Wheelbase model that came with 3.6L Penstar V6 mated to 8-speed automatic, and power is sent through all four wheels. Our tester is the long-wheelbase model, so it is much larger both from outside and side. I drive the 2019 Hyundai Palisade as my daily driver, so throughout for a review, I will briefly compare the 2021 Jeep Grand Chrokee L against my Hyundai Palisade. So, let’s go for a drive with the 2021 Jeep Grand Cheorkee L.

It looks better than the Palisade, in my opinion. Classic but modern design at the same time. Also … a lot of useful interior features, nice color combination (caramel brown and black).
Very nice car.

Asian Petrolhead

Yes, lulian. This 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee looks more tough and rugged compared to Hyundai Palisade. Thanks.


Several US automakers have the seek & volume buttons on the back of the steering wheel to help the driver maintain hands position on the steering wheel. My wife had a Grand Cherokee then traded for a Palisade. She saw your GV80 review and now wants to switch; she may change her mind after this video.

Asian Petrolhead

Thanks Rush1, I am just not used to having buttons on the other side. And how nice. Hyundai Palisade and Genesis GV80. Both are very nice SUVs. Thanks for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review! Oh by the way, we have the Genesis GV80 6 seater review coming in few days, so stay tuned! Thanks.

I was waiting for this SUV. But the rotary shifter killed it for me

Asian Petrolhead

Well, but rotary gear shifters yield lots of room inside, so i think it’s pretty good. Thanks That Guy777 for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!

Flandre Scarlet

If the palisade has the massage seats then it will be perfect. Probably hyundai is saving that feature for the future gv90 if there is one

Asian Petrolhead

Yes, you’re right, probably saving it for the Genesis GV90. Thanks for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!


the high end jeep grand cherokee trim is a surprise to those who haven’t been in one. GREAT materials.

Asian Petrolhead

Yes, I am very surprised about how nice interior this Jeep Grand Cherokee came with.


the Pentastar V6 is a VERY reliable engine, and power is decent. Yes, not the most fuel efficient, but ok.

Asian Petrolhead

Yeah, I mean this time Jeep really tuned the 3.6 Penstar V6 right for the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

I love how Jeep put the buttons for the massage seat on the door.

I also love that the heated/cooled function get their own hard buttons!

Asian Petrolhead

Yes, I was very surprised that this 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee came with massaging seats.

The WK2 Grand Cherokee was the most awarded SUV ever made.

I think the WL will do just as well thanks to the minor improvements and 3rd row option.

Having the gigantic WAGONEER as another option truly helps the Jeep Brand compete with Cadillac and Lincoln.

Asian Petrolhead

Yes, really hope to show you Grand Wagoneer when it comes to Korea. Thanks for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee review.


Chrysler and GM Cars have had the VOLUME/SEEK Paddles behind the steering wheel for decades. US is use to it. I like it in my new Impala and last 4 cars.

Asian Petrolhead

Um.. So, you just have to get used to it, i guess. Thanks gene978.

Aehsanur Rahman

Damn that’s a huge car, would love to see it in real!! Also the volume buttons behind steering wheel ig it depends if a person who had a car whose buttons were in front of steering wheel they would think it is weird maybe….

Asian Petrolhead

Thanks Aehsanur for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!


Now I know where the interior of the Jeep Compass in taken from. Of course this feels much more luxurious but I love what Jeep has been doing with it. Another great review Charlie Ssi! 파이팅!

Asian Petrolhead

Thank you ssx26 Ssi for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!

Tony C. Oliveira

Awesome review, as always. Thank you, Charlie. Have you driven the new Honda Passport? I would like to see your review on that. Thank you buddy.

Asian Petrolhead

Hi Tony. Yes, I have driven the Honda Passport. But only made review in Korean. But hopefully we will make one more soon in English. Thanks for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!!

John Holst

Nice video Charlie! Just a couple of corrections though. We do not get the 5.7 Hemi in Korea, sadly. And the starting price is 68K US dollars. It’s a lot of SUV, but it is a lot more expensive than the Palisade. By the way, I hope you can review the refreshed Mohave soon!

John Holst

@Ballin Wallen lol I understand your confusion. But keep in mind this video was made in Korea, and here in Korea, the price is 68K us to start. Please refer to the Jeep KOREA website.

Ballin Wallen

What are you taking about? The starting MSRP is 37,785$ in the United States. Exactly as he said.

I have no clue where you are getting the 68k figure from 😂

Asian Petrolhead

Yes, John. That’s what I have said, it’s unfortunate that we don’t get V8s here in Korea. Yes, it’s quite expensive. Thank you for the corrections John and for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review.

Steven Galloway

Grand Wagoneer is a large SUV, AP. Palisade is a medium SUV. Is this really a fair comparison? 🤔

Asian Petrolhead

Yes, Steven. I just compared it to my daily driver. Thank you Steven for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!


It’s large and beautiful interior 😍 thank you for the video it’s nice ❤️ Asian petrolhead ❤️

Asian Petrolhead

Thank you Abubakar for enjoying our 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!!!

S Cristian

It is a beautiful car but some people that owned Jeep told me that they tend to ask for the service to often.Maybe the new models are more reliable.I hope for a Toyota Land cruiser review.Someone wanted to buy one but he said that he needed to wait for a year or two in order to ship the car.

Asian Petrolhead

Hi Cristian. Yes, hope the new Jeep is more reliable. Thanks for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!!!


As a previous owner of a Jeep Grand Cherokee I can tell you they break all the time. Hyundai has the best warranty hands down. Stay far away from a jeep unless you like your vehicle in the repair shop

Philip Lee

@Asian Petrolhead You can be assured that it hasn’t, and there are far superior quality alternatives in this SUV segment that buyers should be looking at.


The 90s ZJ Grand Cherokee is in the top few most reliable SUVs ever made. The new Grand Cherokees aren’t bad, either


Thanks for the response. Can you please tell the people at Hyundai Genesis to replace the steering wheel on the 2022 GV80. My wife just purchased a Acura MDX because of that ugly steering wheel on the GV80. It’s funny because it’s true. Thank you for your reviews.

Asian Petrolhead

Hope the reliability has gone up for the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee! Thanks mj23bama.

Matthew Callaway

The volume buttons on the back of the steering wheel are actually pretty convenient (I have them in my Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid). Takes a couple days to really get used to them.


yes, once you get used to them, so nice to not have to take your hands off the wheel.

Asian Petrolhead

Thank you Matthew for sharing your thoughts about the volume and seek button behind the steering. I guess just need sometime to get used to. Thank you for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cheorkee review.


Fantastic car review, Can’t wait to get this car in the future.

Asian Petrolhead

Thank you James for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review!

Muhammad Tayyab

Always love your review 🤠

Asian Petrolhead

Thank you Muhammad for enjoying the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee review.
