The current generation of the company’s flagship model has been around for more than eight years. So, it’s no wonder that many reports suggest a complete redesign for the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee. However, the current situation about the redesign is rather unclear. While some reports suggest its soon arrival, others claim that the new model won’t come so soon and that we will have to wait for another year to see it. In any case, the new model will bring lots of novelties. Count on a new platform, new engines, styling, interior design etc.
On the 2020 Best SUV website you can read full review and find out that new Grand Cherokee will be 7-seater SUV.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Redesign
The upcoming redesign is about to bring some significant changes. First of all, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is about to get a new platform. It should be a modified version of the familiar Giorgio platform, which currently underprints models like Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia. The new Grand Cherokee will be the first non-Alfa model to use this architecture. We can only imagine how much it will benefit, especially if we consider that the current model is still heavily based on the Mercedes-Benz’s old W166 architecture. Count on significant improvements in terms of driving dynamics and overall ride quality for sure.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Styling and Interior Design
In terms of the styling, we have no doubt that the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee will continue to evolve. We don’t count on any radical change in terms of styling philosophy. Still, the new model will probably feature a little bit longer wheelbase and slightly higher rear end, as new reports suggest it will become a three-row SUV. Besides more space, the new interior will also come with a completely new layout. It will be characterized by hi-quality materials and newest tech goodies. Count on a lot of influence from the new Ram 1500, when it comes to the dashboard design, which will include a new 12-inch touchscreen with the latest version of the famous UConnect infotainment system.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engines
Considering the new platform, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee will certainly come with a new palette of engines. Latest reports suggest massive electrification. Most likely, base models will feature a new 2.0-liter turbo-four that delivers around 270 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque. As you probably know, this engine comes with the eTorque system. It looks like both six- and eight-cylinder units will utilize the new technology, which will provide much better efficiency and more torque at low revs.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, it is still unclear whether the new 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is about to arrive, or we are about to wait for another year for the redesign. In any case, the price shouldn’t be much different compared to the current model, which starts at around 32.000 dollars.
The top of the range is 707-hp Trackhawk with price slightly above $86,000.
