The Jeep Grand Cherokee is heading to the UK, with deliveries set to commence sometime next year.

Featuring hybrid power for the very first time, it’s poised to offer an alternative to cars like the Range Rover. Here’s everything we know so far.

The looks of the updated car have been directly inspired by the Wagoneer. That means it gets a much more imposing profile than the outgoing car courtesy of a longer bonnet.

The roofline is lower than previously too, while LED headlights and Jeep’s well-known vertical-slat grille are on show up front.

We’ve only seen a few snaps of the plug-in 4xe, but it looks like this variation will be available in a contrasting two-tone black and white colour scheme.

The all-new 2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve model’s spacious interior features standard 10-inch display screens, including a frameless digital gauge cluster and 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen radio, hand-wrapped, quilted Palermo leather and open-pore Waxed Walnut wood accents, all-new LED lighting with ambient features, driver and front passenger seat massage and personalized climate zones.

Inside, you’ll find a 10.1in infotainment system on the dashboard, along with an all-new 10.25in digital instrument display that replaces traditional analogue dials.

Quality has taken a step up in the new car too, with leather upholstery and Piano Black trim present. UK specs are again to be confirmed, but expect lots of tech and safety kit – Jeep is going all out to compete with the likes of Range Rover and Jaguar SUVs.

Jeep Grand Cherokee drivetrain and engines

The Grand Cherokee 4xe PHEV is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and two electric motors. Combined they produce around 380hp.

The motors are connected to a 17kWh battery that allows for up to 25 miles of electric-only range, while the driver will be able to choose between three modes.

Jeep wants 70% of all European-bound cars to be zero-emissions by 2030, and more than 40% in its home market of America.

Jeep Grand Cherokee safety

A host of new safety features and equipment will be available on the new model, which aims to keep passengers safe both on and off the road.

Semi-autonomous driving tech will feature, while some versions will benefit from a special night-vision camera that can detect pedestrians in the distance. Traffic sign recognition and autonomous braking tech will also be available.

The car will also be available as a Trailhawk model that adds things like a limited slip differential and an electronic traction management system.

Jeep Grand Cherokee release date

We don’t know when the new car will arrive in the UK, but it’s likely to be sometime early in 2022.

We’ll bring you more pics, specs and details of the UK-bound car when we get them.
