Revamped, fuel-efficient Wrangler, a Wrangler-based pickup and new luxury SUVs should keep Jeep flying despite losing one of its nameplates.
A-segment Jeep: Though still under consideration, this entry-level Jeep would be developed primarily for emerging markets and other regions outside North America where minicars predominate.
Renegade: The Italy-built subcompact crossover will receive a minor freshening for the 2018 model year for North America.
Patriot: The Patriot will cease production in December. Customers will be steered to the redesigned Compass.
Compass: The redesigned Compass, to now be built for the U.S. in Mexico, will appear in dealerships in the first half of 2017. It will share a platform with the Renegade and Fiat 500X, though it is longer than both. It also will share many features with the Renegade, including a trail-rated Trailhawk version, disconnecting all-wheel drive and nine-speed automatic transmission.
Cherokee: Jeep's midsize SUV will be freshened as it moves factories from Toledo, Ohio, in April to Belvidere, Ill., where production is set to launch in May.
Wrangler: The next-generation Wrangler starts production in late 2017. It will be lighter than the existing Wrangler, with improved aerodynamics and more engine choices mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual gearbox. A diesel option for domestic Wranglers will be available in 2018.
Wrangler-based pickup: Production of a Wrangler-based pickup is scheduled to begin in mid-2018. The vehicle will use many Wrangler suspension and powertrain components.
Grand Cherokee: The Grand Cherokee will be redesigned in 2018 for the 2019 model year. The new platform will allow designers to cut weight and improve aerodynamics. A new trim level, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, powered by the 6.2-liter, supercharged, V-8 Hellcat engine, will launch in 2017.
Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer: The Wagoneer family will share a platform with the next-generation Grand Cherokee, but it will push the upper boundaries of SUV luxury when it appears in mid-2019. The Grand Wagoneer will be a more luxurious trim version of the Wagoneer, which is expected to have three rows.
Both Wagoneers also will share suspension components with the two-row Grand Cherokee and will have many upscale interior features.
