Anybody "know" when the 2020's will start hitting the lots? I was looking today and only found 2 new 2019's still available within 150 miles of my location. I "may" consider trading my 2018 on a 2020.... I topically trade for a new car every year, but the 2018 TH I bought was so awesome and trouble free I just skipped this year. Not sure if I can wait until the 2021's come out so I'll see what kind of deal I can make on a 2020. (Maybe)

2020 Grand Cherokees are already on lots.

Autotrader has a handful with pics.

Havenít seen any TrackHawks yet but at this point most dealers are going to wait until they have a guaranteed buyer for that level.

The exception will be the large volume retailers but since many of them still had 2018s to move recently they arenít going to be ordering many for the floor either.

Point being, the reason you donít see them is not because a dealer couldnít have ordered and had it already. Your best bet to get one soon would be to order one.

Thanks, I may just expand my searches for a 2019 rather than order/or wait for a 2020. That is, if I decide to trade in my 2018.

2021 will be twin turbo, lmao just playing no clue. just had to bust your chops. I will swap for new TH when they make a huge body change or serious power upgrade. Im to cheap/poor to just swap cuz of the date it was built.

In an effort to keep all options open, the theoretical attached idea should keep everyone happy 😆

I know you were only kidding but they will likely go twin turbo eventually but they are going to milk this Hellcat thing as long as they can.

Future leaked roadmaps do show reference to a 6.2L HO for a future Grand Cherokee so speculation is that it could be a RedEye version or maybe something in between current Hellcat and Redye versions depending on what the drivetrain can handle.

The new chassis IS expected to be lighter (built on an Alfa platform) so even if the engine isn't bumped up it should still shave a a tenth or two off the performance times.

Biggest difference will be new and improved electronics, things like a larger main screen, HUD, 360 camera, foot activated tailgates are likely.

The biggest question is timing though, right now, as discussed at the beginning, the 2020 models aren't much different. FCA is currently moving production around at some of the factories and re-tooling & training will be needed which takes times. Plus, after the chassis change, they usually focus on the top movers first, Limited, Overland, Summit models. Performance models are usually a good 9+ months later.

Again, all speculation based on small bits leaked. I feel confident that the TrackHawk will live on for a few years and I am holding off for the next chassis before upgrading but really the only thing certain is that a new chassis is coming, what engines and when remain to be seen.

I wished they kept the red interior. What a disappointment. I was willing to pay premium for the interior I wanted. But I ordered the 2020 TH with the black Nappa/suede interior, HK sound system, and the pano roof.

Dont tease us like that... My heart sank and i was so happy to read your first five words....

Im deff getting the new iteration of the trackhawk when it arrives... but I will deff be keeping my 2018 trackhawk forever!

As for the HUD, I made sure i got one in my z06.... After spending a year with it... I could DEFF live without it... My eyes are just trained to go to the dashboard for useful information, as its much easier to read with a lot more info!

I just hope they dont release a new trackhawk the same year they release the c8 z06

Very Interesting! I have only had the HUD on a few rental cars and absolutely loved it. That was my second favorite new feature expected (first favorite being the new chassis being lighter, you know, go fasterrrrrr).

Seriously though, I really thought the HUD would be my favorite new toy but you got me thinking... Maybe I was just interested in it because it would be something new and I don't have it... The downside is it drastically increases the cost of the windshield and tinting the windshield (as I usually do) will likely reduce the display clarity....
