The new-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee will be unveiled in 2020, but its premiere date has not been set yet.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, we expected to see it in full at the 2020 NAIAS in Detroit in June. The show is cancelled, and the production is delayed. Now we’re in anticipation of a new reveal date announcement.
Meantime, Jeep is testing the prototypes. One of them has been recently spotted on public roads by TFLnow.
The upcoming Grand Cherokee will share the Giorgio platform with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia. This generation will have a longer wheelbase for the vehicle to accommodate a third row of seats.
Engine choices will include a 2.0-liter inline-four as the basic mill, a Pentastar V6 with eTorque, the RAM 1500’s diesel 3.0-liter V6 making 260 hp and 480 lb-ft (651 Nm), and a plug-in hybrid variant, in the course of time.
The current fourth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee was introduced a decade ago as a 2011 model.
The 2020 Grand Cherokee Facelift is on sale now priced between $32,150-87,400. It has a wide range of trim levels including those offering off-road abilities, great performance, interior luxuries.
The SUV boasts the robust engine lineup, the best-in-class towing capacity of 7,200 pounds, when properly equipped, and one of the most user-friendly infotainment systems.
But it offers less cargo space than most midsize SUVs; fuel economy is also subpar. Hystorically, the Grand Cherokee’s safety score tends to be below average.
