    Jeep 'Ultra Compact' Crossover Coming In 2022

    Jeep 'Ultra Compact' Crossover Coming In 2022
    It’ll be a smidge longer than the Suzuki Jimny.

    Over the last few years, Jeep has hustled to update and expand its lineup, riding the wave of crossover popularity. But Jeep’s not done yet. Not only are there two larger, three-row SUVs coming – Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer – the company is also planning to launch an “ultra-compact” crossover in 2022, according to Auto Express. The publication spoked with Jeep European Head of Brand Marketing Marco Pigozzi, who spilled the tiny can of beans about the new model.

    The mini Jeep will slot below the Jeep Renegade in the brand’s lineup, which likely means we may not see it in the U.S. It’ll compete against the likes of the Suzuki Jimny, even though it’ll be slightly longer than that model. However, it’s shorter than the new Nissan Juke that Europeans continue to enjoy. Pigozzi said the new model would still meet the brand’s high standards for off-road capability.

    The new model could be electrified, too. The automaker plans to offer a hybrid version of every vehicle by 2022, and, depending on the market, could offer plug-in hybrids and battery-electric vehicles. Recently, Jeep’s Global President Christian Meunièr said the electrification plans should make the automaker “the greenest SUV brand in the world,” claiming the hybrid models will be “the best Jeeps ever.” That’s a bold claim for a car-buying public that’s still warming up to hybrids and EVs, though the new product assault could come at the right time.

    Well, at least they want to save HALF the world. That's worth something, right?

    Personally, I'm waiting for the Ultra Ultra Compact Compact. Figure I should double down.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    Well you’re getting both soon. And at least the plant work has started for the 3 row Grand Cherokee so any risk of cancellation is now severely diminished.
