2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee to get new Phoenix V6 engine

Chrysler will be introducing a new and redesigned Jeep Grand Cherokee in 2010 but will be keeping the unibody construction. Under the hood, Chrysler will offer a new fuel-efficient V6 engine, internally known as the Phoenix.

Tom LaSorda, Chrysler’s co-President said that Chrysler will retool its Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit to produce the new Gran Cherokee and some other models that will use the same platform – which was built in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz.

LaSorda also confirmed that Chrysler’s new small car that it is working on with Chery Automobile will be ready for sale next year.
