I don't know if it's good for real off roaders / rock crawlers. For the rest of us, we will probably not notice. I'd be more interested in what will get bolted to the platform.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Moving to Alfa Romeo Giorgio Pl

There are several discussions about this already in both this forum area and the WK2 forum area.

Be aware that the plan is evolving relative to time-frame and presently, it's looking like JGC will continue on the current platform for a few more years while the Alfa platform is fully developed to match the requirements for JGC.

Based on FCA CEO, confirmed next gen GC to use AR platform. American production plant will see a high $s upgrade to production line. Plan on a MY19 release.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Moving to Alfa Romeo Giorgio Pl

So, they're not butchering the JGC with a AR platform and rather developing it so that the word 'Jeep' on the hood still means something for the JGC? I'm okay with this. As long as we can still lift it, and it has a dual speed xfer case and doesn't look like an Euro POS that tried too hard to look American, I'm okay with this.

It will look and perform just as it always has. I doubt.much changes. They know what they have and what butters their bread.

Current platform is long in the tooth. Too many other brands moving past them. FCA Engineers are all of it. My guess is MY19-MY20.

I wouldn't doubt Scott. I agree with him, we would've seen spy shots and other things by now. I've got my money on MY 21.

Scott (and Milous) are "FCA insiders"...because of them, we at JG will likely be "the first to know" what the actual plan is once it's determined.
