The upcoming year is about to reveal another 2019 model coming from the Jeep family. The next-generation Grand Cherokee has been recently spied being tested, and based on those photos as well as some rumors and information, we can pretty much guess what the fans should be expecting.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Grand Cherokee, it has been said that this model will appear with a brand-new body. On the other hand, there is also a chance that the new Cherokee will be based on the G (Giorgio) platform found on Alfa Romeo models such as the Stelvio. However, the Jeep models have been cheaper and much more functional in terms of off-road capability than the Alfa models, so it might be inspired by that platform and combine it with some new features. The fact is that the new Cherokee will have an innovative styling, often compared to the latest Jeep Wagoneer model. Jeep will also make an effort to save some weight as much as possible and that way improve the handling, acceleration and overall performance of this model. The spy photos of the camouflaged prototype revealed that this Grand Cherokee will get more aggressive bumpers. Speaking of front fascia, a redesigned and smoother grille will replace the older and a bit pointy one. Also, the LED headlights will be placed lower than before and get sort of a rectangular shape. The profile of the new Grand Cherokee will seem more muscular while the wheels will be placed further to the corners. This model will get two sunroofs – the front and the rear.
In the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will find a spacious and comfortable cabin. It will be furnished with premium-quality materials such as leather, wood and cloth. The rear seats can be folded if you want to get some extra space in your trunk. The new Cherokee will perfectly accommodate up to five adult passengers. The driver will get a 12.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system and numerous high-tech options. You can also expect a 360-degree camera system as well as dual-zone climate control.
When it comes to engine of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, there will be more than one option for you. The lower trims are expected to use the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that delivers 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The other option comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 Eco-diesel that produces 237 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. A more powerful version uses the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with its 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Another possibility includes the 6.4-liter V8 that can hit 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed transmission should be expected standard for all trims.
