Since we saw the prototype of 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee we surely can confirm that it will be a brand new SUV, larger in size and wider and more robust in shape. Of course, it is too early to predict anything, since we saw only the rough shape of the machine wrapped in camouflage, but the information we have by now promise significant changes in size and design.
This is something that the manufacturer had to do after the releasing in 2011 and almost any significant change in the design of the car. The major change happened in 2018 in Trawhawk, and Grand Cherokee has been left without redesigned details. Now is time to see changes in this field, too, and as we could be able to see, they will be extremely attractive.
- The model is highly attractive and large.
- There is a new hybrid engine in offer.
- There is no information if there will be changes in price.
- The model has not been changed in design lately.
The major change in the design of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is visible on test driving, too. There is the great new shape of the bumpers, that support the boxy shape of the vehicle and make it more aggressive and robust. The 7-level grille looks almost the same as on the previous model, while the height of it is impressive.
The rear end obviously has independent suspension and a new angle of the exhausts that confirmed off-road capabilities of the vehicle. The model is made on the rear-wheel platform that is used from Alfa Romeo Giulia and Giorgio platform, meaning that it will make a place for the new 3-row vehicle.
It was hard to see how the cabin inside of 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee looks like, and the manufacturer has not been much pleased to share it with us. However, we expect changes only in the devices and equipment, while the design and comfort are not changed much this time.
There are no planned changes in the engines that will come in 2021 Grand Cherokee, or, it is better to say, that only change could be fulfilled of the existed models. Speaking about the existing models, those are well-known 3.6-liter V6 that produces 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The manufacturer has always been proud of similarities with models like GMC Acadia in this field.
However, there is a stronger 5.7-liter V8 engine, with great power and strength. It produces 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Although there was another 3.0-liter diesel engine in last year model, there is no confirmation this time. It is more likely that they will offer a hybrid engine instead. Finally, the most appealing for the new generation of the buyers is surely new driving-assistant system that will make driving safer.
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Release Date and Price
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be made in Mark Avenue Engine Complex in Detroit. It is the place where mentioned new 3-row SUV will be made, too. However, these two models should fulfill the mid-size segment that is literally forgotten in the past few years.
Along with them, the manufacturer will redesign existing Wagoneer model and add new Grand Wagoneer as well, sharing the platform with Ram full-size pickup trucks. All these models should be made in the same factory, starting from 2020.
