Three-Row Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep is set to add a few three-row SUVs in the next few years, and the Grand Cherokee three-row seen here looks like it’ll be ready to join Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

It’s similar to the current Durango in size and is set to compete against the Toyota Highlander and the Ford Explorer.

It will get the new platform that’s based on the Giorgio used on Alfa Romeo models. It may receive both the current model’s 3.6L Pentastar V6, and a new 3.0L inline six that will be turbocharged. It will also receive a hybrid system, replacing the 5.7L Hemi V8. A plug-in hybrid (powertrain from the 4Xe) and turbodiesel are expected to follow.

’22 Jeep Compass Trailhawk

 

Here’s a first look at the ’22 Jeep Compass Trailhawk. Up front are revised headlamps with a new shape and an LED strip that has been moved to the top. The rest of the front fascia gets a complete revision with a grille that stands more upright, revised foglights, and additional plastic mesh under the grille. Around back, the minimal changes are to the taillights and the removal of the rear tow hook.

Behind a new steering wheel is an optional 10.1-in. digital cluster. The infotainment should run on FCA’s latest Uconnect 5 system.

Power is still expected from the 2.4L naturally aspirated four-cylinder that’s mated to a nine-speed automatic.

’22 GMC Sierra Denali 1500

 

Here’s the upcoming refresh to the GMC Sierra Denali 1500, towing a trailer. Expected to launch for the ’22 model year, the refresh will update the various perceived shortcomings of the GMC Sierra that was introduced for the ’19 model year.

Noteworthy items to expect include new front and rear fasciae, an all-new cockpit with a large center screen, an all-digital gauge cluster, and Super Cruise on the range-topping Denali model.

Expect an official debut in mid-2021.
