For the first time since 2010، the Jeep Grand Cherokee is getting a full redesign، and we have the photographic proof. A camouflaged prototype was caught testing by our spies، and while not much of the design is revealed، we gleaned some new information about the upcoming all-new SUV، as the Car News said.
Despite the heavy camouflage، we can tell that the new Grand Cherokee will have a longer wheelbase and rear overhang to offer more interior space and cargo room. While the protruding hood on this prototype might seem reminiscent of classic Jeeps like the J-series، it's just part of the camo. Slim taillights and the hint of Jeep's seven-slot grille are visible through the coverings، but that's about it. Overall، the exterior styling of the Grand Cherokee should be fairly evolutionary، but the interior could receive bigger changes—maybe the 12.0-inch touchscreen from the Ram 1500—and it will likely receive a lot more love in terms of luxury، tech، and driver-assist features. Looking underneath the prototype، we can see that the Grand Cherokee will still have an independent rear suspension. In June of 2018، then-CEO Sergio Marchionne said the new Grand Cherokee would be riding on a stretched version of Alfa Romeo's rear-wheel-drive Giorgio platform، which is used by the Giulia and the Stelvio. The Grand Cherokee will stick to having two rows of seats، as an unnamed three-row crossover based on the same platform will sit above it in the lineup and next to it on the assembly line.
