2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee spied in the wild

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee spied in the wild

Jeep have been quiet about the Grand Cherokee for a while now. With all the news around the Gladiator, Wagoneer, electric and hybrid Wranglers and potential future models, the big SUV has hardly got a look in. That all changes today as what is thought to be the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been spied out on the road.

The eagle-eyed guys over at Motor Authority managed to get some pictures of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This is going to be an all new model, with new underpinnings, new engines, new design and new everything. The images don’t give away much thanks to the camouflage but we think we know a few things about the new model.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

We know that the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is an all-new vehicle. It will be based on the Alfa Romeo Stelvio’s Giorgio platform. The Stelvio has a reputation as being a solid drive with firm comfort and while not known for its off road ability, I’m sure once given the Jeep treatment all that will change.

We think the Grand Cherokee will use some engines from Wrangler, namely the 2.0-litre turbocharged four cylinder. We also think the ever-present Pentastar 3.6-litre V6 will still represent as it’s too good an engine to not be used. Other than that, we hope the Hemi V8 will continue but we don’t know for sure.

We also expect there to eventually be an EV and/or hybrid version, just like the new batch of Jeep Wrangler in 4xe guise.

We also hope the awesome Trailhawk version will continue. It is my favourite Grand Cherokee with its genuine off road chops, great looks, well-tuned air suspension and excellent Pentastar V6.

Makeover

We also expect the interior to have a complete makeover. Jeep has done wonders with the new Wrangler interior, taking what was once generously called ‘utilitarian’ and bringing it right up to date and up to spec. We imagine the more luxurious Grand Cherokee will also get some of that, just turned up a few notches.

Jeep has hinted that the new SUV will include more automation and more safety. Exactly what form that will take, we don’t yet know. With safety becoming more important in our buying decisions, poorly performing cars will suffer in terms of sales and while the GC has never been unsafe, the higher the safety rating, the higher the sales.

It’s all speculation right now though. Jeep has let a few pieces of news out the bag but is keeping a lot of the good stuff to itself. I’ll keep my ear to the ground and collect everything I can about the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Expect another post with updates as soon as I have some good news.
