A casual eyewitness was able to capture a camouflaged prototype of an updated mid-size SUV. The car was at the crossroads.

The debut of the new Grand Cherokee SUV is likely to happen later this year, but we still don’t know much about the upcoming new product. Now the team of brand engineers is engaged in testing prototypes of cars. An eyewitness was able to capture a camouflaged prototype of a car that was standing at a crossroads.

The photo was accompanied by a text saying that the car was captured on the road to California, and then she disappeared into a Jeep dealership. We only have this single image, but it gives us a good overview of the rear of the updated SUV, including a decent view of the rear lights behind camouflage.

 How can we be sure that this is the new Grand Cherokee? Obviously, we can’t offer a proven guarantee, but the size of the vehicle and camouflage exactly match our ones that the previous prototype of the new product had.

 A clearer look at the taillights also reveals a style very similar to the one we see now on the flagship Jeep SUV, suggesting that the update may be more evolutionary.

This is consistent with a recent report that familiar Pentastar V6 and Hemi V8 will remain under the hood of the new Grand Cherokee. A new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will be offered later, and a hybrid model is also expected in a year or two. It is also likely that the Grand Cherokee will remain a two-row SUV with five seats.

 The current Grand Cherokee was shown in 2011, but despite this, its sales remain high. In 2019, sales grew eight percent from the previous year.
