Does anyone have the most recent Milous post decoder ring to help us try to guess what's coming?

Personally I think that if FCA thinks that they can "rest on one's laurels" and at the same time keep the momentum (and market share) going for another 4-5 years with only light refresh then ... they are in for rude awakening. Nothing wrong with WK2 just world is not standing still.

I don't believe that FCA is wanting to "rest on their laurels". My guess is they are juggling with how much time they actually need to properly engineer and plan for the platform change now that they have apparently decided the "what platform" part. That may or may not relate to the "changing winds" that Milous quips about. Honestly, I'd rather they get it done thoughtfully and completely rather than rush it since whatever is developed is going to have to last a long time. Remember, the "platform" isn't a "thing" so much as it is a design and production methodology in addition to a physical design.

A lot of different opinions here and confusion.

Most likely the 2019 will be the next generation, platform based on the AR Stevlio, and yes a bi-turbo option.

Sorry but it won't be. Would be impossible.

Re: 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee "WL/Wk3"

And if the 2019 is merely "refreshed," the probability of the 2020 being on a new platform doesn't seem very high at all to me. Just would not be a good business decision.

I would guess a later 2021 model launch at the earliest but FCA is changing things on the fly all the time so by the time I click submit things could have changed.

There is no refresh planned for the 2019 model year.

Makes complete sense. Trackhawk is new for 2018. Refreshing (much less overhauling) the whole line for 2019 (or even 2020?) does not seem like an option. And as I suggested in a different thread, letting the Trackhawk (as well as the Trailhawk) have a decent run to capitalize on the investment is wise.
