This week, Jeep will launch an upgraded version of its Grand Cherokee SUV. The 2021 Grand Cherokee model will be presented on Wednesday, according to the American automaker (September 29).
The next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, which will be the model’s fifth generation, is expected to be the automaker’s best offering in terms of off-road performance yet. What’s more intriguing is that Jeep will also offer a plug-in hybrid version of the Grand Cherokee, which will be the company’s first.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee L made its US debut in January of this year. To a large extent, the new generation of Grand Cherokee will be based on the design of this model. There could be minor variations in the wheelbases available for the Grand Cherokee L. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is expected to have a five-seat configuration with two rows of seats. A massive 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen and an even larger 10.3-inch digital dashboard should dominate the dashboard.
The upcoming Jeep Grand Cherokee is expected to be powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 petrol engine with 290 horsepower and 352 Nm of maximum torque, as well as a 5.7-liter V8 petrol engine with 357 horsepower and 529 Nm of torque. The engines will most likely be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Grand Cherokee L has the same engine options as the Grand Cherokee. The 4xe plug-in hybrid version is expected to have the same powertrain as the Wrangler 4xe, which has a maximum torque of 637 Nm and an output of 375 horsepower.
Jeep was seen in India testing a three-row SUV, believed to be the Commander. Grand Cherokee, on the other hand, can take a bit longer to reach Indian beaches. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is expected to hit Indian markets in 2022, sources say. Like the Wrangler, Jeep will likely import the Grand Cherokee as a completely overturned vehicle (CKD), meaning it could be built locally in India.
