The last couple of years were full of dynamics in Jeep’s lineup. We saw several new models, starting from the new Grand Cherokee, as well as revived Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models. However, that doesn’t mean that the following years will be less interesting. The company prepares a lot of novelties, including four all-electric models that should arrive by 2025.
One of the important novelties is the new inline-six turbo engine, which will be offered across Wagoneer and Grand Cherokee range. Furthermore, the Cherokee is expected to receive a full redesign, while smaller models like Compass and Renegade are expected to carry on in the same way. What’s particularly interesting is the EV lineup, which will bring several interesting novelties. The first model to come will be Jeep Avenger, which will compete in Europe. In North America, Jeep will offer the brand-new Recon, with a rugged design and strong off-road capabilities. Finally, the company promises all-electric versions of the Wrangler and Wagoneer.
Let’s take a closer look at each of Jeep’s important models for the 2024 model year.
2024 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
The company’s flagship SUV has just come with two important updates and upgrades. The second production year brought the new stretched version, as well as the new engine. With the new Grand Wagoneer L, Jeep can also compete with stretched variants of Navigator and Escalade, especially with the new Hurricane inline-six engine. This unit puts out 510 horsepower and offers pretty impressive performance, starting from the 0-60 time that goes under 5 seconds.
For the 2024 model year, we don’t expect significant changes. However, the good-old 6.4-liter HEMI V8, which currently powers the standard-wheelbase version, will probably be dropped from the offer, so all versions should come with the Hurricane engine. Other than that, we might see some novelties regarding the standard and available equipment, but most things should remain the same.
The biggest novelty will be the introduction of the all-electric version, but that will be pretty much a separate model, so we will get on it in a few moments.
The Grand Wagoneer currently starts at around 90.000 dollars.
2024 Jeep Wagoneer
The less luxurious and less fancy version of the Grand Wagoneer has been updated in the pretty much same way as the 2023 model year. There is a new, stretched version, with additional 7 inches in the wheelbase. Also, there is the new inline-six engine, tuned to 420 horsepower. Considering the updates, the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer shouldn’t bring more important updates.
We will see a familiar design, introduce just a year ago, with a design that offers a great balance between comfort and performance. This SUV is very spacious and offers a smooth ride. At the same time, it offers strong off-road performance with features like adjustable air suspension. Moreover, you may also count on class-leading towing capacity, with goes all-away up to 10.000 pounds.
One of the potential changes for the next year is the discontinuation of the base 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine. Instead, the new inline-six would power all variants of the SUV, together with a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission
The starting price should go around 62.000 dollars.
2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The current generation of the legendary mid-size SUV is still pretty fresh, so we don’t expect to see more significant updates in the next year. The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee is expected to carry on in the same way, in two familiar variants, either as a five-seater or as a three-row SUV that comes with the “L” suffix. Some sources speculate about the new inline-six engine, but the officials are still quiet about this.
Until the officials say something about the Hurricane engine, we can only expect to see three familiar powertrain options. Base models will continue with a good-old 3.6-liter V6, while there is also the good-old 5.7-liter V8, which puts around 360 horsepower. Finally, there is a plug-in hybrid version, based on a turbo-four engine, with a total output of 375 horsepower.
Minor updates in terms of new standard equipment are always possible, but we don’t expect to see anything significant. The overall layout will remain the same and, unfortunately, high-performance versions like Trackhawk won’t be offered. On the other hand, there will be a couple of versions with strong off-road performance, upgraded suspension, various traction control modes and other important pieces of off-road hardware.
The price should also remain largely the same, so base versions should go around 41.000 dollars.
2024 Jeep Cherokee
In the last few years, Jeep engineers were busy with new generations of Grand Cherokee and revived Wagoneer. Now, it’s time for smaller models to get updates and Cherokee is definitely one of the vehicles that desperately needs updates. The current generation has been around since 2013 and it looks like it is finally about to get a full redesign.
The new model will ride on the new STLA platform. That is a modified Giorgio platform, with an FF layout and transversally-mounted engine, so we may expect the evolution of the current design. Of course, the new architecture will bring all kinds of improvements, starting from weight reduction, improved ride quality etc.
Naturally, we will see the completely new exterior and interior designs, while the powertrain lineup should start with the familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four. On the other hand, the old 3.2-liter V6 will be discontinued. Some sources also speculate about a plug-in hybrid version, based on a smaller turbo-four engine.
The new generation should arrive sometime in the second half of the next year, with a starting price of around 30.000 dollars.
2024 Jeep Compass
After the last year’s facelift, which also brought a completely redesigned dashboard, we expect that the current generation of Jeep’s compact SUV is about to remain in production for some more time. Therefore, the 2024 Jeep Compass will feature no bigger changes, but rather be a typical carryover model.
This means that we may count on a small crossover that, unlike its rivals, actually offers pretty strong performance, thanks to upgrades like off-road suspension, low-range gearing, skid plates, various traction control modes etc. At the same time, it features one of the nicest cabins in the class, with fine materials, attractive aesthetics and an intuitive infotainment system.
Unfortunately, the powertrain will remain the weakest point of this SUV. The Compass still features a good-old 2.4-liter inline-four, which features a max output of 180 horsepower. Although reliable, this engine lacks power, while the 9-speed automatic transmission isn’t particularly great either.
The current model starts at around 27.000 dollars and we don’t expect a bigger increase in the next year.
Details about the Renegade’s future are still unknown but there is a big chance that we won’t see the next generation, as the company already works on a small all-electric SUV. However, the recent update in Brazil indicates that the current model may remain in production for a few more years. It could be sold alongside the EV counterpart.
If that’s a scenario we are about to see, then the 2024 Jeep Renegade is about to bring a familiar design. Not many things have changed since the initial launch, so there is still a recognizable boxy design, which is complemented by a funky interior and a decent amount of standard equipment.
What makes Renegade special is its off-road performance, which is surprisingly good for the segment. There is a decent number of off-road features, while the small 1.3-liter turbo-four engine is surprisingly capable with its 180 horsepower. However, it’s not particularly efficient and actually uses more fuel than some much bigger engines in the class.
Since the 2023 model year, the Renegade is no longer available in the most basic trim levels, so the offer starts with the Latitude versions, which start at around 31.500 dollars.
2024 Jeep Wrangler
The iconic off-roader is expected to bring some significant novelties in the near future. Everyone talks about the electric version of the SUV, which is not a surprise if we consider that the company already presented two concept versions. However, the officials are still quiet about the production, so everything should be taken with reserve.
On the other hand, the rest of the lineup should remain largely the same. This SUV offers exceptional off-road performance, thanks to so many pieces of hardware, starting from solid axles, off-road suspension, locking differentials, off-road tires and many more.
Once again, the Wrangler will be highly configurable, with two body styles, available soft and hard tops, removable panels and several powertrain options. The powertrain offers includes V6 and turbo-four gasoline engines, a diesel unit, as well as a plug-in hybrid version with 375 horsepower. Finally, there is the super-capable Wrangler Rubicon 392, which features a 6.4-liter V8 and a max output of 475 horsepower.
While the all-electric version is still under question, ICE models will continue in the same way. Two-door models should start at around $30.000, while the four-door model should be available at around 34.000 dollars.
2024 Jeep Commander
Jeep Commander is designed for developing markets. It debuted in Brazil a few years ago and it doesn’t have anything in common with some previous iterations of Commander. It is designed to be simple and affordable, so it’s no wonder that the company decided to offer it in other developing parts of the world. For the next year, the biggest novelty will be its introduction to right-hand-drive markets, such as India, Pakistan, Hong Kong etc.
Since this is still a pretty fresh model, the overall design will remain unchanged. We are about to see a simple but quite versatile crossover, which packs three rows of seats in a pretty compact package. The cabin accommodates up to seven passengers, while the dashboard looks pretty nice, with a lot of similarities with the new Compass.
Besides the quality interior, there is a pretty decent powertrain lineup, with the small but capable 1.3-liter turbo-four that puts out 180 horsepower. Also, the company offered a 2.0-liter diesel engine. This one offers the same power but a pretty impressive 280 pound-feet of torque.
2024 Jeep Patriot
Once again, we are hearing rumors about the comeback of this nameplate. This model was in production until 2016, at the time when Jeep had two compact SUVs on offer. It was offered alongside Compass, so it was expected to see one of them discontinued.
However, rumors suggest a revival of this nameplate and it looks like there could be a lot of things in common with Compass once again. Practically, there are two possible scenarios for the nameplate. One of them is to see Jeep using it for a re-branded Compass in certain parts of the world.
The other scenario suggests a special version of Compass. That would be a kind of trim level or a special edition, which would come with lots of exclusive features. We would see some unique styling details, as well as a couple of upgrades regarding off-road hardware.
Unfortunately, the actual chances to see this nameplate active again aren’t too big.
4 All-Electric SUVs by 2025
The company also promised four all-new all-electric SUVs by 2025. According to the manufacturer, this will include a couple of familiar nameplates as well, the all-electric Wagoneer and Wrangler models.
Some of the EV models have already been prepared to hit the market. One of them is called Avenger and it is designed for the European market. It will be a tiny SUV, even smaller than the Renegade. From what we know so far, base versions will feature a single electric motor on the front axle, with 115 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. The motor will be paired with a 54-kWh battery, which will ensure around 250 miles of range.
The next one is called Recon and, unlike the Avenger, it won’t be offered in Europe, but rather in North America. This will be a mid-size SUV, with a design that closely resembles Wrangler. The concept has already been presented and it shows a boxy rugged shape, which promises high off-road potential. On the other hand, details about the drivetrain are still unknown. Rumors suggest fast charging capabilities and a max range of around 300 miles.
Jeep Wrangler EV
The all-electric variant of the iconic off-roader is a matter of time. The company already presented two concept versions, with the “Magneto” monikers. The initial version came with a 285-hp electric motor, while the second concept features a pretty impressive setup of 625 horsepower. Both models came in a pretty interesting layout, with a stretched version of a two-door body style and interesting battery displacement. We presume that the production version could come in a little bit more conventional design approach.
Finally, the company promises an all-electric version of the full-size SUV, which should come as the Jeep Wagoneer S. We still don’t know the details, but various details suggest a setup that offers 600 horsepower. Allegedly, the new SUV would be able to hit 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, while the max range should go around 400 miles.
