New Jeep Grand Cherokee Spied Testing On A Michigan Highway

  • 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee was spotted testing near Detroit

  • Next-gen Grand Cherokee was supposed to debut at the North American International Auto Show

  • COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the reveal to a future date


The new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee was supposed to have been unveiled already, the debut initially scheduled for the first summer North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

As we all know, the show didn’t happen and plans across the world including in the automotive industry have been put on hold because of COVID-19.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Review

Testing is still ongoing for the next Grand Cherokee, however, as shown by this video of a prototype being tested on a highway in Michigan. The video was sent by a viewer to TFLNow which published it on its YouTube channel.

There isn’t much to go on as it is heavily camouflaged, but information regarding the next Grand Cherokee has begun to filter in the last few months. For starters, we know it will be considerably more spacious and larger than the current Jeep Grand Cherokee. It should feature an available third row of seats.

Under the hood, it’s quite possible we will see a 3.0-litre diesel engine from the Ram 1500 Ecodiesel. There are rumors of a possible hybrid powertrain as well. A standard V6 and V8 engine are also expected.
