2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Possibility of Powertrain Change

Jeep may have provided the needed information of 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but further details are still needed. According to the company, they are making a new gen of such a legendary SUV with all the whistles and bells. But also expect some changes to come along the line, such as the V8 is said to be replaced by inline six unit. According to the company, the biggest change would take place on the powertrain, while the others will remain superficial.

The Updated Plan

The Grand Cherokee is a pretty new model in the industry with fresh design, so it’s unlikely that Jeep would change the overall design and construction. The new gen of Grand Cherokee is completely different from the previous ones, with significant changes on the platform, resulting in significant weight reduction. The same platform is also responsible for a better and more engaging handle.

But when it comes to exterior appearance or interior design, there won’t be any drastic updates. The SUV already has impressive interior vibe and good looking exterior, so it will do for now.
