The next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee will be bigger than ever

The new Grand Cherokee will ride on the Alfa Romeo platform and will probably come with a hybrid lineup.

The next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee was filmed for the first time, and it will be larger than the previous model. He will ride on the Alfa Romeo Giorgio platform, which underpins Giulia and Stelvio. Grand Cherokee should go on sale by the end of 2020 as a 2021 model.

For the first time since 2010, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been completely redesigned and we have a photo confirmation. The camouflaged prototype was caught during testing, and although little is known about its design, we have gathered some new information about the upcoming SUV.

Despite the heavy camouflage, we can say that the new Grand Cherokee will have a longer wheelbase and rear to offer more interior space and luggage space. Although the protruding hood on this prototype may resemble classic jeeps, such as those of the J-series, but this is just part of the camouflage. Thin taillights and a hint of a grille with seven slots are visible through the covers, but that’s all that can be distinguished. Overall, the Grand Cherokee’s exterior design should be quite evolutionary, but the interior can get a big change – maybe the Ram 1500’s 12.0-inch touch screen – and it’s likely to get a lot more love in terms of luxury, technology and function driver assistance.

Looking at the prototype, we see that the Grand Cherokee will still have an independent rear suspension. In June 2018, then-CEO Sergio Marchionne announced that the new Grand Cherokee would ride a stretched version of the Alfa Romeo rear-wheel drive Giorgio platform used by Giulia and Stelvio. Grand Cherokee will stick to two rows of seats, as an unnamed three-row crossover based on the same platform will be located above it in the line and next to it on the conveyor.

We expect the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Wrangler hybrid to be the base engine of the new Grand Cherokee, and the new Pentastar V-6 with eTorque hybrid assist system to become the mid-range choice. The Hemi V-8 should remain the best option, as the eTorque version is potentially the only offer that the Grand Cherokee can offer in its entirety. A few years after the debut, a hybrid version with a plug-in will appear, like the new EcoDiesel V-6. (We really hope that the supercharged Trackhawk will return.) Late last year, new rumors surfaced that the Fiat Chrysler is working on a new turbocharged six-cylinder engine that will debut at Wagoneer and will be even more powerful than the Hemi V-8. If these rumors turn out to be true, the engine may appear in the Grand Cherokee as a high-end option.

Although it is possible that the Grand Cherokee will debut this year. We believe that in the first half of 2020 it will be more likely to introduce a new SUV, which will go on sale by the end of the year as a 2021 model. But given Fiat Chrysler’s tendency to push back the debuts of new models, Grand Cherokee may not see dealerships for another couple of years. Expect a slight increase in price compared to the current price of $ 33,440 for the current model, when the new Grand Cherokee will be able to overcome the mark of 65 thousand dollars in a complete set.
