Return of the Jeep Truck, Wagoneer Woody + an SRT Hellcat Jeep Coming Soon

Written By, Chloe L.

Almost half way through the year, and so far things have been pretty good for the Jeep brand and it looks like 2017 will be just as exciting.

This year's highlights so-far 

  • Jeep is currently celebrating their 75th anniversary and for the entire year they are selling a special-edition 75th Anniversary trim, which is available on all of the Jeep models.
  • Since the beginning of the year and continuing through May, Jeep sales have been consistently healthy and there have been many record-breaking months for sales of specific Jeep vehicles like the Jeep Renegade.
  • In addition to the special-edition 75th Anniversary trim, a limited-edition Dawn of Justice trim was made available for the 2016 Jeep Renegade. The special-edition Jeep Renegade was created as a part of a unique partnership between Jeep, Dodge and Warner Bro. for the filming and promotion of “Superman v. Batman,” a movie that debuted in March.

What’s to come for the future?

There are a few major changes being introduced to the Jeep model lineup in 2017 and 2018.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat: confirmed to arrive in mid-2017

Jeep CEO Mike Manley confirmed that the rumored Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat is not only real, but the vehicle will be available in July 2017. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat will be powered by the same engine used in the modern day muscle cars, the Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat models. The  SRT Hellcat engine is a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.

Jeep Wrangler pickup truck: estimated to arrive in late 2017

The Jeep Wrangler is a much anticipated new addition to the Jeep lineup. This pickup truck is the first time Jeep has entered the pickup market since 1992, when Jeep ended production on the XJ Cherokee-based Jeep Comanche. Unlike the Comanche, the Wrangler pickup is expected to be a 4-door truck and it is expected to have a rugged military-like styling.

New generation Jeep Wrangler: estimated for 2017 or 2018

With a couple “spy” photos recently released by a couple different auto industry publications, it’s clear that people are excited to see how the Jeep Wrangler will look after its redesign. So far, what sources know about the future Wrangler is only speculation and is not very detailed. It appears that the vehicle will go from a 5-speed to an 8-speed automatic transmission and the vehicle has received a new suspension.

The Return of the Jeep Woody: estimated to arrive in late 2018

With the return of a Jeep pickup truck and a Jeep Grand Wagoneer (a.k.a Jeep “Woody”), it seems that the Jeep brand likes the idea of rekindling their past. Rumors about Jeep bringing back the Woody began in 2015 and it should be available in late 2018. The new SUV will feature 3-row seating and Jeep has said it will include luxury features.
