    Next-gen Jeep Grand Cherokee to get three-row seating

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles intends to open an assembly plant in Detroit to produce SUVs. Some reports have claimed that FCA will convert its former Mack Avenue Engine plant into a new vehicle-manufacturing facility. This new plant will be built to produce the new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    Reports suggest that the new Grand Cherokee will be offered with three rows of seating – for the first time since the car originally went on sale. The new car will be offered in 2021 model year. Jeep hasn’t said much about this new SUV, but FCA’s latest five-year plan has revealed that the next-generation Grand Cherokee will have autonomous driving technology and a plug-in hybrid powertrain on offer.
    Even though the new Grand Cherokee will be offered with three rows of seating, it will no longer be considered the flagship SUV for the Jeep brand; this spot will be taken by the upcoming Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

    The current Jeep Grand Cherokee has a price ranging from Rs 75.15 lakh for the base variant and going up to Rs 1.14 crore for the SRT version (all prices, ex-showroom New Delhi). The-top-of -the line SRT version is equipped with a 6.4-litre HEMI V8, which is good for 475hp and 637Nm of torque.
