2021 Jeep “Grand Cherokee XL”

Wasn’t expecting this. Apparently a three-row crossover coming from Jeep that will slot above the Grand Cherokee, but is distinct from the upcoming Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer.


A few observations. This is clearly not the standard Grand Cherokee and FCA has said they wouldn’t give this the GC name. This is also distinct from the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer spy shots (next-gen GC and Wagoneer shots below for comparison). Further, it’s also clearly not the Chinese Grand Commander. I wonder, though, if this could be the Wagoneer, whereas the Grand Wagoneer will be the truck-based model?

For comparison, clearly shorter Grand Cherokee spy shots:
