In the coming years, the Jeep brand plans to introduce all-new and refreshed models. What are they?
1. A three-row gasoline-powered midsize SUV, whose name is still undefined, should arrive next year. It sits below the Grand Wagoneer in Jeep’s lineup.
The carmaker plans to start production of the model in the 1st quarter of 2021 at the Mack Avenue assembly complex in Detroit. There are some hints that it will be a three-row Grand Cherokee.
2. In the second quarter of 2021, Jeep begins to build body-on-frame, premium-level 3-row large SUVs – the Wagoneer and higher-end Grand Wagoneer at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in suburban Detroit.
3. The next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee goes into production in the third quarter of next year, and will be on sale in late 2021. A plug-in hybrid version will join the gasoline model soon after.
4. The Jeep Cherokee gets a new Latitude LUX trim in 2020, including a remote start, Nappa leather upholstery, heated power front seats with a lumbar adjuster.
For the 2021 model year, an 80th Anniversary Edition added. The next-gen model is expected in 2024.
5. The Jeep Compass compact crossover has been mid-cycle refreshed for 2021. The manufacturer prepared its Toluca plant in Mexico for production of the Compass.
This model also receives an 80th Anniversary Edition, on the basis of the Latitude trim. It features Granite Crystal 19-inch wheels, and leather seats with accent stitching.
Expect full redesign in 2024.
6. The Jeep Renegade subcompact crossover gets several special editions for the 2021 model year: Jeepster Edition based on the Sport trim, the 80th Anniversary Edition and Islander Edition, both based on the Latitude trim.
A new generation could appear in 2023.
7. For the 2021 model year, the Jeep Gladiator midsize pickup adds a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 with stop-start and an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Its fuel comsuption is 28 mpg (highway), while the standard V6 model consumes 22 mpg.
The 80th Anniversary and Willys special editions have joined. The Overland vehicles come now with a TrailCam forward-facing off-road camera.
Expect redesign around 2027.
8. For 2020, the Jeep Wrangler midsize SUV received a diesel variant. By the end of this year, a plug-in hybrid Wrangler will reach U.S. dealers, with a new 4xe tag.
In July, Jeep unveiled the Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept with a 450-hp (450 lb-ft) V8 engine. This version boasts 0-60-mph sprint in less than 5.0 seconds.
For the 2021 model year, the automaker adds a couple of new special editions: already familiar 80th Anniversary and Islander. The Wranglers offer the TrailCam forward-facing off-road camera now, with an 8.4-inch touchscreen.
The next full redesign should happen in 2027.
