KASCADE-Grande, the extension of the multi-detector setup of KASCADE, was devoted to measure the properties of extensive air showers initiated by high-energy cosmic rays in the primary energy range of 1~PeV up to 1~EeV. The observations of the energy spectrum and mass composition of cosmic rays contribute with great detail to the understanding of the transition from galactic to extragalactic origin of cosmic rays, and furthermore to validate the properties of hadronic interaction models in the air shower development. Although the experiment is fully dismantled, the analysis of the entire KASCADE-Grande data set continues. We have recently investigated the impact of different post-LHC hadronic interaction models, QGSJETII-04, EPOS-LHC, Sibyll 2.3d, on air shower predictions in terms of the reconstructed spectra of heavy and light primary masses, including systematic uncertainties. In addition, the conversely discussed evolution of the muon content of high-energy air showers in the atmosphere is compared with the predictions of different interaction models. In this contribution, the latest results from the KASCADE-Grande measurements will be discussed.
