We’re still waiting for the official word from Jeep about the new Grand Wagoneer and its date of production. Until the automaker reveals even a hint of what the future holds, we’ll have to make due to renderings like the one above from OminiAuto.
This is what a production Grand Wagoneer could look like if it goes into production in the next years. If those front lights and grille looks familiar to you, that’s because it was taken from the leaked dealer presentation photo that circulated the internet back in October last year.
Its dual LED headlight fixtures, lower LED running lights, sculpted grille and lower fascia can be found in the leaked photo. Combined, these features does give the Wagoneer a premium look which is something it sorely needs in order to justify a six digit price tag.
Taking inspiration from its Grand Cherokee sibling, the rendering has pinched metal lines extending from the front wheel arch to the rear with a similar roofline. What has been updated is the new trend for rear windows to climb a bit at the end for a compact and sleek look, though this change could affect c-pillar visibility. Of course the vehicle length extends a few inches further out to accommodate a third row of full sized seats.
OminiAuto thinks Jeep will debut the new Grand Wagoneer sometime in 2018 or 2019. We’ll just have to wait and see.
This rendering is very possible.. we've already seen the Compass develop the GC styling, so it does make sense that the GW will follow suit to an extent of course. I would want a little more distinction from it though.
if it actually ends up looking like then then i'm afraid they didn't do enough to make it live up to the original
this should be something very unique in the line up unless what's unique has more to do with the interior than exterior.
I really think the interior is going to be the star out of it. But it really has to be some luxurious and tech filled interior to make it play into that $140k mark area... or anything over $100k to be real.
Well, with the rate things are moving at we're bound to see changes and introductions to the interior which we have never seen from Jeep.
They have no choice but to and with all the recent models and trims released, this is exactly what we have been seeing.
This could be the game changer for them if those interior changes check all of the right boxes. It'll undoubtedly trickle down to the "lower" segments in relation to the Grand Wagoneer of course, which could give them that bump and refreshment they've needed.
I think its more so predicated on design and layout than anything else, but more so design since in this segment, asking for the price they're rumored to....design takes on a bit more priority. I;m hoping that will be something that hints to what we see in Range Rovers and higher end SUVs in that range.
