    Jeep will unveil the next-generation Grand Cherokee in 2020

    Jeep will unveil the next-generation Grand Cherokee in 2020
    It will spawn a bigger, three-row SUV

    Jeep has started testing the next-generation Grand Cherokee, and it announced it will introduce the SUV before the end of 2020. The current-generation model is the oldest car in the company's lineup by a wide margin.

    "I love the Grand Cherokee because it's survived so beautifully. It's getting on now, and we're about to replace it later this year," revealed Ralph Gilles, Fiat-Chrysler Automobile's head of design, in a live-streamed interview.

    Gilles added he enjoyed helping create different variants of the Grand Cherokee, like the Hellcat-powered Trackhawk and the upmarket Overland, so it's reasonable to assume the next-generation model will again spawn several models planted all over the automotive spectrum. He didn't give away anything else about the SUV.

    The prototypes Jeep is testing in and around Detroit are heavily camouflaged so it's difficult to tell how the Grand Cherokee has evolved. We can tell its overall proportions and dimensions haven't changed significantly, though it will spawn a three-row model that might wear a different name, and rumors claim it will ride on a brand-specific evolution of the Giorgio platform found under Alfa Romeo's Stelvio and Giulia. The Italian bones seemingly allowed engineers to carve out a more spacious interior by extending the Grand Cherokee's wheelbase.

    Can't wait to see the new GC. The current one has been a home run. Personally really interested in the 3-row version and how that design works.

    Plus waiting to see if the long rumored Turbo Slant Six shows up as the future Hemi replacement.

    These things only seem to get better. I suspect this new one will not let us down.

    The car was revealed to Australian dealers a few weeks ago. It's apparently a great evolution from the existing model.

    The interior is a real stand-out. Lots of aluminium, timber and quality leather trim. Big screens in the dash. They're really taking it up-market.

    Confused: "The current-generation model is the oldest car in the company's lineup"

    Isn't the Charger/Challenger/300 older, or they only talking about Jeep?

    This version has been around, just shy of 10 years now. I remember very well when they came out, it was the fall of 2010, my wife's office just got moved across town, and the ill handling FWD Rendezvous was not handling that trek in the winter (20+ miles of hilly 2-lane roads), so we were looking to get her back into a Grand Cherokee, being that her 2004 Grand Cherokee was her favorite, $23,000 for a loaded Commander or almost $40,000 for the new Jeep. The Commander served us well, it's weakest link was that putrid 3.7L V6.

    Considering how old + good the current interior is, and how good the RAM interior is, I would expect it to be top notch.

    The 3.7L was a dog.....

    All Jeep really needs to do is come out with a 3 row Wrangler variant, they wouldn't be able to build enough of em because the demand would be so high.

    Wagoneer first, GC later.

    They'll still have the 6.4L V8 and 6.2L supercharged V8.

    It'll be the replacement for the 5.7L V8 eventually. The TI6 isn't ready yet and will debut on the Wagoneer. The bigger V8 variants will still live on though.

    The 5.7L V8 got e-torque and that should be the last of improvements. It'll be phased out when the TI6 gets here. The 6.4L and supercharged 6.2L V8 will live on longer.

    This was leaked back in August, just for context:

    WTF is a soccer mom anyway. There is a market for "image cars" and that's what the Wrangler is. Maybe it wont get anyone out of buying a Highlander but it sure as hell may pick up a sale from someone, like me, who wanted a Wrangler but it didn't fit their family size. There's already a strong aftermarket for 3rd row retrofits, perhaps Jeep can cash in and build something that is actually safe for 3rd row occupants.
