An All-New Jeep Grand Cherokee Is Reportedly Coming for 2021

Few cars can survive a decade on the market without becoming a laughing stock. Yet, the fourth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee has held up well, still looking good and selling better than ever in its tenth year on sale. But with the segment heating up, an all-new Grand Cherokee is coming for 2021, according to Car and Driver.

Importantly, C/D‘s story was reported before the coronavirus brought the entire industry to a screeching halt. As a result, the timeline may be delayed. Still, the news is major: according to our sister publication, the new Grand Cherokee will ride on the Alfa Romeo Giorgio platform that underpins the Giulia and Stelvio, and ly possibarrive next year.

That wouldn’t be the first time that the Grand Cherokee springs from luxury roots. Jeep’s most luxurious model, in its current form, can be directly traced back to Mercedes through the DaimlerChrysler era. It’ll still be a Jeep, though, with real four-wheel-drive variants complimenting the luxury-focused rear- and all-wheel-drive versions.

C/D reports that it’ll have a significantly longer wheelbase than 110.9-inch one in the Stevlio, likely longer than the current Grand Cherokee’s 114.7-inch wheelbase. Expect more length out back, too, as the publication reports that a three-row variant will compliment the upcoming Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

The base engine, per C/D, will be a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder with a eAssist Pentastar V-6 on offer as well. Hellcat and diesel engines are also on the table, though unconfirmed.

Before the coronavirus outbreak C/D reported that the new model would launch in early 2021, but we’ll have to see if that holds true.
