2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee New Generation: Changes, Specs, SRT

Jeep’s range of SUV models have been under revision in last
years and Jeep will continue upgrading high-riding vehicles in
years to come. We saw recently redesigned Compass model with
Grand Cherokee-inspired design and more capable and
sophisticated new Wrangler. Jeep recently presented refreshed
Cherokee model with more conservative styling and new turbo
engine. The pint-sized Renegade will also receive the mid-cycle
refresh for the 2019 model year while Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer
models should also arrive in about two or three years. Yes, but
what’s about Jeep’s mainstream SUV, the Grand Cherokee.

Well, expect nothing much from the upcoming 2019 Jeep Grand
Cherokee. Based on what we know so far, this vehicle will
return as the carryover model while the next-gen Grand Cherokee
is expected as the 2020 version. Expectations are, that Jeep
will retain winning formula while will improve model’s
performance and efficiency and add latest technologies for the
new-generation version. The 2019 model will likely add more
standard features and possibly additional infotainment option.
Some changes are also expected in the equipment organization.

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee: Design

From the visual point of view, the Grand Cherokee is the
timeless mix of modern and traditional. We don’t expect Jeep
will change this formula with the next-gen version. We also saw
that redesigned Compass adopted styling cues from the
Grand Cherokee model. The refreshed Jeep Cherokee also brought its styling
closer to that form.

So, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee won’t change the way it looks.
We do not expect some radical changes on the new-generation
Grand Cherokee either. The 2019 version will start with the
17-inch wheel and continue with 18- and 20-inch alloys in upper
trims. Each trim will also bring unique styling elements with
details hinting model’s off-road, on-road, performance or
luxury purpose.

Interior, Equipment:

Interior of the model will also continue in the familiar form
while each trim will bring unique theme and equipment level.
All models will at least include 7-inch touchscreen interface,
dual-zone auto climate control, keyless entry and ignition, six
speakers, etc.

Upper trims will bring improved comfort features, different
leather upholstery options, upgraded 8.4-inch infotainment
system, upgraded hardware, unique exterior and interior themes
and more.

Jeep might also offer even larger touchscreen option and more
active safety systems as standard.

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee: Performance

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee will likely return with five
powertrain options, several all-wheel-drive systems, and
different suspension setups. The new-gen version should bring
mild-hybridization for better performance and efficiency plus
turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

The base model will use 3.6-liter V-6 providing 295 hp.

Buyers will be able to opt for the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 with 360
horsepower.

Next level of efficiency will provide a 3.0-liter turbodiesel
V-6.

The SRT version will have a 6.4-liter V-8 under the hood
combined with the specialized four-wheel drive system and the
sport-tuned suspension.

The last year added Trackhawk will include 707 hp supercharged
6.2-liter V-8. We must say that this version is the fastest and
most powerful SUV version on the market.

Both engine types (V6 and V8) are paired with the 8-speed
automatic transmission. The V6 models come with a rear-wheel
drive as standard, while all-wheel drive is optional. However,
the models with V8 engines come with only AWD.
