During a Facebook Live video where FCA Head of Design Ralph Gilles and FCA Head of Performance, Passenger & Utility Exterior Design Mark Trostle discussed their jobs, they let slip that the next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee was debuting this year. Gilles brought it up when discussing his favorite designs (around 15:00 into the video below) and mentioned the Grand Cherokee. Muscle Cars and Trucks first noticed this slip of the tongue.
"It has survived so beautifully. It’s getting on now, and we’re about to replace it later this year. We're going to show the new one," Gilles said about the next-gen Grand Cherokee.
There are already some spy shots of the next-gen Grand Cherokee (below), which we believe would go on sale for the 2021 model year. The photos suggest that the popular SUV grows noticeably larger than the existing one. The camouflage makes the styling difficult to see, but the general silhouette of the vehicle in these pictures doesn't indicate that there's a radically different look.
