From 2021 and on Jeeps vehicle line up will grow to include a three-row crossover, next-generation Grand Cherokee early into 2021. Later that year, the delayed Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Refreshed models are also expected, although it isn't clear yet what exactly that will include.

report:
"Jeep is one of FCA’s most important brands and they’re embarking on a major product push.
The first new model will be a three-row crossover that is closely related to the next-generation Grand Cherokee. The vehicle will built at the former Mack Avenue Engine Complex as FCA is investing $1.6 (£1.2 / €1.4) billion to turn the facility into a state-of-the-art production plant.
The three-row crossover is slated to roll off the assembly line late this year and it will be joined by a new Grand Cherokee in the first half of 2021. To make room for the model, the current Grand Cherokee will be phased out early next year.

Jeep hasn’t said much about the models, but both are expected to ride on a modified version of the Giorgio platform that underpins the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio. The Grand Cherokee will grow in size, while the three-row model will be even longer.
Engine options remain unconfirmed, but choices are expected to include a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and a 5.7-liter Hemi V8. FCA has already confirmed plans for plug-in hybrid variants and they could be joined by an entry-level model with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

A purported interior picture surfaced last summer and it suggested the Grand Cherokee will have higher quality materials and a more modern design. Key highlights are slated to include a rotary gear selector and 16-way power front seats with heating, ventilation and massage functions. The same document suggested there will be an instrument cluster with a 7- or 10.1 inch display as well as an infotainment system ranging in sizes from 7- to 10.1 inches.
2021 will also see the introduction of the oft-delayed Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. They’ll be built at the Warren Truck plant and based on the platform that underpins the Ram 1500.
Little is known about the models but, based on the Ram origins, we can expect them be to be offered with an assortment of different engines including a 3.6-liter V6 and a 5.7-liter Hemi V8. There will also be a plug-in hybrid variant and possibly even a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6. The latter could compete with diesel-powered versions of the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban and GMC Yukon.

Other models are a little hazy, but FCA’s contract with the UAW called for “fresh models / features” in regards to the Cherokee. What that means remains unclear, but FCA’s Capital Markets Day presentation said there will be a new Cherokee and a new three-row variant by the end of 2022. They’re slated to have plug-in hybrid and electric powertrains, but the company has been tight-lipped on specifics.
Other upcoming models include a Wrangler plug-in hybrid, a facelifted Compass and a new Renegade. Jeep is also working on an all-new entry-level model that will slot beneath the Renegade and be offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
Of course, FCA doesn’t have the best track record with their five-year plans and the coronavirus pandemic could potentially delay some upcoming models. Regardless, Jeep’s future is certainly looking bright.
