We are expecting two new Chrysler SUVs, and possibly three, within the next three years. The first is likely based on the Chinese Jeep Grand Commander, which shares a good deal with the Cherokee; the second may be based on the Pacifica; and the third would be based on the 2019 Ram 1500, giving Chrysler not one but two full-size, three-row SUVs and reminding one of the brand’s 1960s-70s lineup. The rendering above, based on current Chrysler styling trends and, honestly, the Buick Enclave, shows one possible direction for Chrysler’s styling. This would be for the long-Cherokee (Yuntu, Grand Commander) version, most likely powered by a choice of a V6 engine and the eTorque four-cylinder-turbo-hybrid setup. It could also have a four-cylinder turbo without the hybrid, if it’s light enough to get away with that. The Pacifica-based and Ram-based Chryslers would almost certainly not be light enough to get away with a four cylinder turbo. Why not make the body-on-frame SUV a Dodge Ramcharger? Ignoring the number of doors — purists insist that Chargers and Ramchargers only have two doors — it would not be an especially performance-oriented vehicle, and Dodge is moving to being more performance-focused. Likewise, Ram is being aimed at the commercial-vehicle market even if most buyers of its pickups are still regular folk. As for names, we believe Atlantic will be assigned to at least one of the new vehicles; the rest are anyone’s guess. Aspen may re-appear, but neither Aspen made the history books as the most desirable car of their era, and that name might be best left buried. Chrysler does not have a long history of making trucks and SUVs, and perhaps a nautical theme, following Pacifica, makes as much sense as anything. Read the whole post here.
