2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Redesign – We may like the imposing style and fusion acceleration of the face of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, but it is also impossible to overlook how outdated the rest of the 707 hp SUV feels. And considering that the current generation Grand Cherokee has been on sale for eight years, it’s safe to say that the big Jeep could use a redesign. In two years, it seems that’s exactly what we’ll get.

The Detroit News reports that Jeep plans to present a new Grand Cherokee for model year 2021, which means that the current version will be a decade old at the time it comes out of production. To make it more attractive for families, the Grand Cherokee 2021 will offer seats in the third row as well. And in a move that Detroit residents will appreciate, it is said that Jeep revives an inactive plant to build its next-generation SUV.
Mack Avenue Engine II, which has been dormant since 2012, will be reequipped to produce the new Grand Cherokee. According to the Detroit News, the reactivation of the Mack Avenue plant will create about 400 jobs. It would also be the first new assembly line to open in Detroit in 27 years. For workers affected by GM’s recently announced plant closures, the news of opening a new plant will soon be a relief as they continue to look for work. Once the Mack Avenue facility is in operation, FCA will begin rearranging the Jefferson North assembly plant across the street to build Grand Cherokee two-and three-row.
According to CML Automotive, Fiat Chrysler plants are currently at a 92 percent capacity, while GM and Ford are operating at 72 percent and 81 percent, respectively. “The FCA is essentially out of capacity ,” A CML Automotive analyst, Jeff Schuster, told the Detroit News. “They are facing against being in full capacity. This is a very different situation than what GM is trying to do.
As far as we’re concerned, that’s a pretty good problem for a car manufacturer. Let’s hope that FCA plans for one of these redesigned plants to build a 2021 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk
