One of the best things that could happen to Jeep when Mercedes-Benz (Daimler AG) rendered technology was the revival of the Grand Cherokee. The all-terrain large of the us firm received the same platform used by the Mercedes ML and this helped to improve their performance both on the road and in the field. The problem is that the separation of the two groups left Jeep without platforms new and until today it has only been allowed (by their economic situation) slight modifications and improvements on an already outdated platform.
however things are going to change radically, because FCA going to pay for the next generation of the Grand Cherokee a platform much more modern, and with better capacity to develop it. Giorgio is your name , and Alfa Romeo was commissioned to release it in the new Giulia. On this modern and lightweight aluminium platform will be born the new models of the signature of the biscione and among which are the already mentioned Giulia and the next SUV Stelvio.
According to Sergio Marchionne, the cost of development of this platform has been estimated at one billion euros, so to make it profitable. there is that to export it to other models and the brands of Fiat Chrysler Cars (FCA). This is the reason which has given the maximum leader of the group italo-american, when he has confirmed the arrival of Giorgio to the new Jeep Grand Cherokee taking advantage of a few statements at the Auto Show in Detroit.
next generation of the large SUV of the Jeep should be in the market in the face the years 2018 or 2019 and in view of the employment of this platform, the development of the model should be very advanced. Reid Bigland, one of the leaders of the Group FCA, have been reported the platform Girorgio is a authentic jewel in to dynamic behavior and benefits. Good proof of this are the records that you have managed to get the Guilia Quadrifoglio Verde at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
We are looking forward to meet the new Grand Cherokee in view of the good plant and mechanical options are going to be. That tremble, their main rivals.
