Among tons of rumored comebacks, we can hear these days, you can also find reports that suggest a comeback of this nameplate. Although a not-so-successful more, which was in production for just a couple of years, it looks like the company tends to use the same nameplate, for a completely new model, which is about to come as the 2021 Chrysler Aspen.
At this point, we don’t know too many details about the new model. The company still keeps everything as secret, so even the arrival of this model isn’t a certain thing, as we are still waiting for the official confirmation. Still, we may presume that the new 2021 Chrysler Aspen would come in a much more modern manner, as a unibody crossover. Also, we count on a new platform, much better driving dynamics and overall performances. The new model could hit the market already by the end of this year.
2021 Chrysler Aspen Redesign
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind about the 2021 Chrysler Aspen design is the platform and base design characteristics. When it comes to base characteristics, we are pretty sure that this will be a mid-size crossover, which will tend to compete with premium rivals. On the other side, the platform may be a bit of a mystery.
Practically, there are two possibilities when it comes to the platform. The first option is to use the same architecture as Pacifica, especially when it comes to overall dimensions and overall layout. However, there is also a chance to see a new Giorgio platform, it’s stretched version to be more precise. The obvious advantage of this platform is an RWD layout, which is one of the most essential things a genuine premium crossover needs to have. Also, keep in mind that the new Grand Cherokee will ride on the same platform, so the two models might have a lot of things in common.
2021 Chrysler Aspen Exterior
As we already mentioned, the 2021 Chrysler Aspen is expected to be a mid-size crossover, with dimensions similar to models like Grand Cherokee or Dodge Durango. On the other side, we count on Chrysler’s new styling approach, which will probably have a lot in common with the recently updated Pacifica. The facelifted version of the popular minivan has been presented just recently and it sports a completely new face. There are new headlights, grille, bumper and more. We presume the 2021 Chrysler Aspen will adopt these aesthetics in a pretty big portion. Still, count on a typical crossover shape, with much higher ground clearance, wagon-like body and pretty long overhangs that would provide plenty of space on the inside. Of course, there is always enough place for some exclusive details.
When it comes to interior design, many things are still a mystery. Still, there are also many things that seem certain and one of the firsts that come to mind is a pretty spacious cabin. If we consider the expected size and dimensions, there’s no doubt that the 2021 Chrysler Aspen would come as a three-row crossover, with plenty of space in all three rows. Also, we count on a generous cargo area.
On the other side, the thing that seems a little bit tricky is the overall look, especially of the dashboard. Of course, we expect from the new model to compete in the luxury segment, which means a lot of hi-quality materials and stylish design solutions. Naturally, we also count on loads of latest tech goodies, including the latest infotainment system. large touchscreen and plenty of other goodies.
2021 Chrysler Aspen Engine
When it comes to the powertrain, there is a lot of options in the game. Practically, we could see any of FCA’s current engines, starting from a small 2.0-liter turbo-four, which delivers around 270 horsepower. Of course, a well-known 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar always seems like a safe bet.
We presume that the 2021 Chrysler Aspen would come in some hi-performance version as well. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is that the new crossover could use some of those large HEMI units, including the monstrous 6.2-liter Hellcat. However, we are pretty sure that Chrysler will tend to offer something more sophisticated and you probably know that the new turbo inline-six engine has been under development for some time. This engine is expected to come in various output variants, and the most powerful should be good for more than 500 horsepower.
Release Date and Price
The 2021 Chrysler Aspen is still just a rumor and we are still waiting to hear something from the officials. However, many reports suggest the new model could hit the market already this year. Still, we won’t speculate about a more precise date and the price at the moment.
