Previous results obtained by KASCADE-Grande using QGSjetII-02, EPOS1.99 and SIBYLL hadronic interaction models have shown that the energy spectrum of cosmic rays between 10^16 eV and 10^18 eV exhibits a significant hardening at approximately 2 x 10^16 eV, a slight but statistically significant steepening close to 10^17 eV, the `knee', caused by the heavy component of primary cosmic rays, and an 'ankle' like feature of the light component just above 10^17 eV. In this paper, we report on results of similar analyses performed using the post-LHC versions of these models: QGSJetII-04 and EPOS-LHC.
