The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is definitely one of the most anticipated models for the next year. After almost a decade, the current generation will be replaced. The new model is about to hit the market next year and there are many interesting novelties to come.
First of all, we will see a new platform, as well as a new exterior design. Also, we count on a new cabin layout. It looks like the engine lineup will be even more impressive in the new model, while loads of tech goodies also seem like a certain thing. The new model should hit the market sometime late in the next year.
- Impressive offer of powertrain options
- Strong off-road capabilities
- Great towing capacity
- Upscale interior
- Some rivals are more spacious on the inside
- Some engines are pretty thirsty
The first thing we should mention is the platform. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee will ride on a Giorgio platform, the same one that underprints models like Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia.
Of course, it will be stretched for this occasion, so much that the new model will be bigger than the current generation. On the other side, the new model will be significantly lighter and more efficient, with better handling and overall driving experience.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee will also come with completely new styling. Still, the visual changes will be evolutionary, rather than radical. At this point, we don’t know too much, but a taller and bolder grille seems like a certain thing.
The Grand Cherokee never had bigger problems with the interior design, so we presume that the new version will also feature hi-quality interior, opulent and full of tech features. As we’ve just mentioned, the new model will be bigger, which also means more space on the inside.
Base models will carry on with two rows of seats, while the third row will be available as well. This means the new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee won’t compete just with models like Ford Edge and Honda Passport, but also with three-row crossovers like Ford Explorer.
It looks like the new model will be even more generous in terms of powertrain options. A new turbocharged six-cylinder has been rumored, in several output variants from 360 to 525 horsepower.
Also, many of the current engines should carry on, including the base 3.6-liter V6. A 5.7-liter V8 should come with a mild hybrid system, while a Hellcat version is expected as well. Finally, a turbodiesel should be in the offer as well.
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Release Date and Price
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee will probably hit the market in the last quarter of the next year, though the premiere should be scheduled for a little bit earlier date. When it comes to the price, base models should go around $33,000.
