2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee 7 Seaters for Sale | Toronto, Mississauga
A Whole Lot of Fun in One Grand Cherokee
What is it about the longevity of a star that keeps them current? David Bowie sure as heck did it, so did Madonna and even Cher. They were not afraid to take the future on by reinventing themselves and still staying authentic. They were not afraid to take risks and changing their image among other things. Well, now Jeep is taking a cue from successful reinvention-ers and propelling themselves to a new generation of Grand Cherokee lovers, especially if that involves transporting a family or a whole high school band. If you want to see the new Jeep Grand Cherokee for yourself once these babies roll into town, take yourself over to your local Chrysler dealership in Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Brampton, Barrie or Peel.
However for the moment we are just gazing into the distance for a glimpse of them, in the direction of the end of 2020 to purchase. The Jeep Grand Cherokee will sell as a 2021 model. This hot new truck is running with a stretched version of the Alfa Romeo’s Giorgio and Stelvio platforms with rear wheel drive, sharing a set of common design and engineering. This was confirmed by then-CEO Sergio Marchionne in June of 2018. We also hope this new Grand Cherokee will be joined by some fame bound hybridized versions. It has certainly been scouted out and appraised as much larger than the outgoing model.
After some covert operations to sneak peek this vehicle it was clear that the Grand Cherokee has been blessed with a much longer wheel base and rear overhang, and enough interior space that will easily fit the aforementioned high school band and the drum kit, but seriously this tweak will offer substantially more room inside. The hood however has been designed with a nod to the classic Jeeps, and it looks to have been made sleek with the slender taillights and the same Jeep-esque quintessential seven-slot grille, visible through the secrecy coverings.
This prototype, will like its predecessors have an independent rear suspension as well as the two rows of seats, similar to the three-row crossover vehicle that uses the same platform and is coming up the assembly line with the Grand Cherokee. It is also suspected that the Wranglers turbocharged 2.0 litre inline-four hybrid will be used, however it is the new Pentastar V-6 made awesome by the e-Torque hybrid-assist system to be offered as a mid-range option. However the Hemi V-8 will continue to be the best option. Of course it is possible that the e-Torque version may be the only one available, in which case would make the Jeep Grand Cherokee an all-hybrid veritable walk of fame. In addition a plug-in hybrid version will be the class act to follow as well as the new EcoDiesel V-6 engine. There is also hope that a superstar, supercharged Trackhawk will make a triumphant return to the world stage. It is also relevant to mention that in the last year there has been a bit of gossip suggesting that Fiat Chrysler is also putting their efforts into a new turbocharged inline-six engine that would get its big break as a Wagoneer and that it will be even more of a power player than the Hemi V-8. If we can believe these rumours it is possible that it could appear in the Grand Cherokee as a star- studded option.
There is some talk and excitement surrounding the potential game changing new exterior style for the Grand Cherokee and that excitement continues to the possibilities for the interior renovations. For instance we know the tech update will be substantial, the Ram 1500 had that 12 inch touchscreen which could show up. This will mean increased driver assist features and of course a little star appeal. And while The Grand Cherokee is most likely be the 2021 model, Fiat Chrysler does like to create a bit of suspense by withholding their new-models so it may not actually see a dealerships for a while yet, but when they do you will be star struck.
