Features found on the upcoming redesigned 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee have leaked online.
While the Wrangler and Gladiator are the usual ones to grab headlines for Jeep, the Grand Cherokee is the brand's bread and butter. According to Car Salesbase, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is now the best-selling mid-size SUV in America, having just recently overtaken the Ford Explorer in the second quarter of 2019.
So it comes as no surprise that Jeep is looking to maintain that momentum with a redesign that will arrive sometime in 2020. And now we know at least a little of what to expect.
Details of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee have leaked courtesy of Instagram account "thejeep_guy," who posted what looks to be either a dealer booklet or presentation page online. The image in the upper left corner shows the new Grand Cherokee's sleek and refined interior in what is most likely it's top-level trim.
The big news here is that the all-new Grand Cherokee will get a 10.1-inch Uconnect and a 10.5-inch high-def instrument display cluster. Both of these are again likely reserved for the top trim as the 7-inch and 8.4-inch Uconnect systems will carry over from the previous model year but have new bezels to match the redesigned interior.
Other changes include a shifter knob replacing the previous handle, a brand new heads-up-display, a 360-degree camera system, foot-activated tailgate, a new overhead console, terrain selector knob, and all-new trim for the switches, knobs, and buttons.

According to a June report from Mopar Insiders, the Grand Cherokee will share a platform with the Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV and come in either 2-row or 3-row forms, depending on the length of the wheelbase. The 8-speed ZF automatic will stay on but come mated to a brand new turbocharged 6-cylinder engine.
Other engine choices could include FCA's 2.0-L turbocharged 4-cylinder, the venerable 3.6-L Pentastar V6, or the 5.7-L HEMI V8 with eTorque found on the Ram 1500.
Expect the new Grand Cherokee to debut at the 2020 Detroit Auto Show, which will move to June next year.
