The Grand Cherokee is likely to look much like the Grand Cherokee L, which is already in production; the L is a de facto replacement for the Dodge Durango, as a lengthened Grand Cherokee with three rows of seats. The current Dodge Durango is reportedly continuing production into next year; it provides buyers with somewhat lower pricing and higher maximum tow ratings, along with an SRT version.
