Even though this generation has been on sale for what seems like forever, the Jeep Grand Cherokee remains one of the most versatile midsize SUVs on the market. It's spacious and comfortable, and it comes in a variety of trim levels. Engines range from a modest V6 to a 707-horsepower Hellcat supercharged V8.
Lately, the Grand Cherokee has fallen behind some of its rivals in a few key categories — such as ride quality and interior refinement — in part because of its seriously outdated platform. For 2022, however, we expect to see a full redesign of the Grand Cherokee, which should help make it more competitive. Based on a variation of the platform used by the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, the new Jeep will likely feature a longer wheelbase that should produce a more compliant ride. Our first look at the interior shows a sharp new look, complete with a rotary shifter and a larger touchscreen than the one available in the current Grand Cherokee.
The new Grand Cherokee will likely be larger and more spacious and add the option for a third row of seating. There's also a strong chance that the new Jeep Grand Cherokee will get a series of updated or all-new powertrains, including a mild hybrid, a diesel and potentially a plug-in hybrid. And, of course, we'll keep our fingers crossed for an off-road-capable Trailhawk model as well as an updated version of the supercharged Trackhawk trim.
