The Next Generation of the Jeep Cherokee Could be Electrified and Have a Wagoneer Version

Jeep is working on the next generation of the Cherokee, which could receive a plug-in hybrid powertrain and a top-of-the-line Wagoneer version.

  • The Jeep Cherokee will be entirely revised in 2024 or 2025

  • The top-of-the-line version could be called Wagoneer

  • This model will feature “heavy electrification”

Reports are beginning to appear about the next generation of the Jeep Cherokee, which will arrive in 2024 or 2025.

Jeep is making many changes to its lineup recently with the addition of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, the new generation of the Grand Cherokee, and the arrival of its first plug-in hybrid models.

This will continue in the next couple of years with the introduction of the first fully electric Jeep and the next generation of the Cherokee.

The current Cherokee has been on the market since 2014 and its last major refresh dates back to 2019, so it makes sense that a completely new generation is on the way.

According to the brand’s CEO, this model will feature “heavy electrification” which likely means that it will be powered by a version of the company’s 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain that is currently available on the Wrangler and the Grand Cherokee. A fully electric version could also be in the plans, but it hasn’t been mentioned specifically yet.

In addition to its new powertrain, the next Cherokee will be bigger and it will move upmarket with a new top-of-the-line model that will likely be called Cherokee Wagoneer.

This will tie this premium trim level to the most luxurious SUVs sold by Jeep, but it will also be a callback to the early days of the Cherokee in the 1980s.

Indeed, when it was introduced as one of the first mainstream SUVs on the market in 1984, the Cherokee was available as the Wagoneer, a wood-panelled luxury version (not to be confused with the unrelated Grand Wagoneer).
