    From SEMA:

    This is the ’21 Jeep Grand Cherokee, caught testing in Southern California.

    The Grand Cherokee will get a complete redesign, inheriting a new platform derived from Alfa Romeo’s Giorgio underpinnings. Naturally, it will be significantly beefed up for a Jeep, but it allows for more technological advancements than the current WK2 Grand Cherokee that was designed in the DaimlerChrysler days. Included in the upgrades will be a 48-volt electrical system to power a new inline six-cylinder engine with mild hybrid assist that’s part of a new engine family from FCA. It’s expected this engine might supplant the 5.7L HEMI V-8, although a V-8 is all but certain to continue to power high-performance versions of the Grand Cherokee. The 3.6L Pentastar V-6 will continue, although benefit from direct injection. A plug-in hybrid variant is expected sometime after 2021.

    While the Grand Cherokee will grow slightly, it will remain a strict two-row SUV with shorter overhangs and a more angled rear window. A three-row Jeep will be served by two upcoming seven-seat models, including the Grand Wagoneer. In keeping with Jeep tradition, a full-fledged Trailhawk model is also poised to return.

    The Grand Cherokee is expected to be shown either late this year in Los Angeles or next year in New York before a mid-to-late 2020 on-sale date.

    Sad to learn about the hybrid and EV garbage making it's way into Jeep.

    Picked one up a few months back and love it.

    I’ve thought about harvesting a VIN from an out-to-pasture CJ5/7, properly afix it to the Roxor, and go get it registered as a “rebuilt” Jeep. People basically do that already with some of the completely rusted out old Jeeps being restored. Virtually nothing left OEM.

    Looks a lot like a Durango sized body to me.

    The mahindra would be pretty cool,

    I went and looked at them and have been working on a convincing argument to try and get the wife to agree that we need one. If I could drive it on the street around here it would've been in my driveway already.

    Not happy to see it getting stretched out like the Durango.

    I love the current body style Jeep. It's going to be hard to beat.

    The tail lights are blatantly a jeep. I feel like they are purposely trying to use the camo to look like a durango to throw people off which is obviously working lol.

    Had one as a rental last year and absolutely loved it. The wife wants a 3 row for our next vehicle although we will probably never use it. I work for honda so a Pilot makes a lot of sense but I really liked that JGC I was driving for a week. Plus the pilot just looks to eh minivan for me.

    I really like the current design. Now I’ll have to wait and see if they improve or ruin it for me.
