It looks like the future for Jeep is looking green.
A new article on Trucks.com points to Jeep looking to make the next generation of Jeeps electric.
“That’s just the natural evolution we’re seeing in the industry,” Scott Tallon, the director of Jeep brand for FCA NA is quoted saying. “As consumers continue to demand more of this technology and convenience we’ll continue to develop our Jeeps that way.”
The article continues to say that a plug-in hybrid version of the Wrangler is expected to be on sale in 2020 as part of the 2021 model line. That means that the future of an electric Jeep is looking more and more likely. That seems to be the way much of the industry is going.
The question for Jeep enthusiasts will be what hybrid and electric cars would mean for the brand. Considering the allure of Jeep is and continues to be off-road, if Jeep can maintain that all the while keeping the capability, it is hard to think that drivers would be mad.

With the excitement and buzz still at a high after the unveiling of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee at the International Auto Show, this news should help even more. The word ‘green’ is used a considerable amount these days in an effort to appeal to with concerns about the changing climate of the world. Companies big and tall make great efforts to show how much they support the cause of doing what they can to help out the environment. Jeep is striving for this as well and they are showing that support by having the 2014 Grand Cherokee have clean diesel technology.
Bosch, a major technology supplier, will be helping Jeep to accomplish this goal. The Grand Cherokee will have a 3.0-Liter EcoDiesel V-6 engines which will have a Bosch Common Rail Diesel Fuel Injection System. That’s what holds the MultiJet II technology. This is the tech that makes clean diesel in the new Jeep happen.
“Jeep’s announcement marks an important milestone as this iconic brand will help make clean diesel more popular in the North American Market,” said Bernd Boisten, the regional president of Diesel Systems North America. “The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee features a Bosch emission system compliant with most stringent emissions regulations in the world. From fuel tank to tailpipe, Bosch is pleased to equip this vehicle with top technologies to give consumers a great driving experience requiring fewer stops at the pump.”
This is a huge step for numerous car companies, Jeep included. In fact, Bosch is saying that by 2017 the US will have about 54 clean diesel vehicles.
