Contrary to its siblings, 2018 Chrysler SUV won’t offer three rows of seats for passengers. It is going to be much lighter crossover with better fuel economy. This is thanks to aluminum, and usage of other modern materials. With just two rows of seats, Chrysler SUV can offer more space for cargo. We doubt that too much leather is going to be used inside the cabin. Cloth covers seats and upholstery. Updates and upgrades of existing infotainment system are not radical. USB ports, Bluetooth and touch-screen display will be standard for all trims of crossover.

Without confirmed information about engine room of the 2018 Chrysler SUV, we can only guess what is coming there. Some reports are sure that this and Aspen crossover will share same engines. However, experts doubt that compact SUV needs 3.2-l V-6 unit. It will rather use some smaller, probably four-cylinder drivetrain. Vehicles in this class send much less power than V-6 can provide. We believe that new Chrysler SUV targets 200 hp as its maximum output. On the other hand, it means better fuel economy. Also, this model might arrive in diesel variant, which is much better for torque lovers. Furthermore, diesel is slightly economical than petrol unit. Hybrid is uncertain at this moment, but idea will live for a quite while.
