Jeep To Debut Euro-Spec Wrangler, Cherokee And Trackhawk In Geneva

Jeep’s stand at the Geneva Motor Show will be packed with its latest models, shown for the first time on European soil.

The highlight will of course be the all-new, fourth generation Wrangler. Jeep claims they were able to improve the off-road icon in terms of comfort and everyday usability but at the same time they made it even more capable for when the tarmac stops.

Jeep didn’t share the powertrain details of the Euro-spec Wrangler but said that it will be available with either of the two advanced four-wheel drive systems we get in the States. The range will include Sport, Sahara and the more off-road capable Rubicon model.

Next to it will be the 2019 Jeep Cherokee. Armed with a new exterior design which finally fixes Cherokee’s biggest problem, meaning that face, Jeep’s updated mid-sized SUV now wants a second chance in the market.

Together with the exterior restyle, Jeep has also updated the interior of the new Cherokee with higher-quality materials, the latest UConnect systems with an up to 8.4-inch screen and a hands-free power tailgate. There’s even the option of a large dual-pane sunroof that extends from the windshield to the rear of the vehicle.

The third debut will be the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which is set to launch in Europe at the end of 2018’s first semester. This beast of an SUV is powered by Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 complete with 700hp and 640lb-ft (868Nm) of torque.

This ridiculous powertrain allows the Trackhawk to catapult itself from 0 to 62mph (100km/h) in 3.7 seconds and it won’t stop accelerating until it hits 179mph (289km/h).

The stand will be completed with special edition models like the Compass Night Eagle and the Grand Cherokee S so be sure to be here in order to find out all the details when the Geneva Motor Show opens its gates on March 6.

  • I never really a fan of Jeep but I had to say the new Wrangler really hit the mark, and with demise of Defender. This is probably the only basic utilitarian off roader you can buy right now.

      So no 3.6L NA V6 for Europeans. They get a turbo diesel I-4 instead.
