The new three-row SUV 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been recently spotted heavily camouflaged in Ann Arbor, Michigan, headquarters. From the information that we got, the forthcoming model will be significantly redesigned, offering more interior and cargo space.
Jeep also revealed that the new flagship model would be built on the body-on-frame architecture with a slightly longer wheelbase. If you didn’t know, the same platform is used on the model’s Alfa Romeo Giorgio, Giulia sedan, and Stelvio SUV.
2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee First Look
In terms of design, Jeep is planning a complete redesign of its popular 2022 Grand Cherokee SUV. Generally, this will be the first significant update since 2010. Perhaps the best news is that it will be available in two forms. There should be a standard model with a two-row version and the new three-row model. As mentioned, Grand Cherokee will be built on the new body-on-frame platform with a slightly longer wheelbase. Again, the same platform is used on models like Alfa Romeo Giorgio, Giulia sedan, and Stelvio SUV.
Dimensionally, we expect the three-row model to have similar proportions to the Dodge Durango. With all of the camo that covers the Jeep Grand Cherokee, we managed to see significant changes. The spied models come with a longer wheelbase, elongated hood, and larger rear end. That means that the captured model is most likely the new three-row version.
Interior Will Get Significant Changes
The cabin of the forthcoming 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee will get significant changes. It will be more luxurious than the outgoing model. According to available information, the upcoming SUV will also include plenty of upscale materials. Alongside that, the manufacturer will add more technology and even better driver-assistance features.
Generally, we can expect to be similar to Wagoneer inside. However, many believe that the new model will host a larger touchscreen, the shifter for a rotary knob, digital gauges, and more standard equipment.
Active safety and driving features will be much better than in the predecessor. In addition, we can expect features like adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assistance, automatic emergency braking, and more.
2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Powertrain Specs
The new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee will probably come with some new engines. The first candidate is a Jeep’s turbo 2.0-liter inline-four, which can be found under the new Wrangler model. This engine will most likely power the two-row base model, and it could have hybrid assistance.
The more powerful option is a Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 with an eTorque assist. This unit might power the three-row base version. However, some gossip also indicates that a plug-in hybrid might be available as well, using a supercharged Hellcat V-8 that powers Durango three-row SUV.
Release Date and Price
The forthcoming 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee is arriving, and the latest spy shots confirm that. Consider that the spied model is wearing a heavy camo, we cannot be sure what is changes. Jeep reveals that the next-gen SUV will be significantly better, offering more standard features and excellent cargo space.
Also, as from some early reports, the next-gen model should arrive early next year starting in the mid-$30,000 range. We will have more details about this SUV in the coming months.
