2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept – Jeep’s upcoming Grand Wagoneer is going to be a big offer– quite literally. Dripped images from a Jeep dealer conference show the front and rear ends of this new luxury SUV, offering the impression that the Wagoneer will be significantly more grand than Jeep’s existing SUV king, the Grand Cherokee. Appearing considerably broader and taller than the Grand Cherokee on this poster, the born-again Jeep flagship looks to have an appropriately grandiose presence and upscale vibe.
2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept
This new design, which uses the storied nameplate from Jeep’s (and Willys’) past, will offer Jeep a three-row SUV when it gets here for the 2019 design year (a bit later than formerly approximated). From exactly what we can see of the front end, it shares a lot of its appearance with the Grand Cherokee– the chrome seven-slat grille, plainly showed and similarly shaped headlights, albeit with an intriguing new LED dot pattern that we have not seen before from Jeep.
Like with most many cars and trucks there, the engines on the upcoming 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer are likely going to be downsized over the Durango. Further up the range, we may see a brand new engine for Jeep, a 3.0 L twin-turbocharged V6. This would be the very first time Jeep would offer a diesel on the United States market.
We understood the 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer would be expensive– Jeep CEO Mike Manley said not to eliminate costs upwards of $130,000 for this Range Rover fighter– but now we know it appears like it desires to choose an actual battle with its rivals. Exactly what’s noticeable of the front and rear styling is really reminiscent of the existing Grand Cherokee, however, it’s muscled up a bit and gets a set of sinister seven-element headlights.
The seven-light style is brought to the rear also, and we have a feeling the number is a not-so-subtle reference to the seven-slot grille that all Jeeps use. That said, here the grille is a brief, wide-mouth affair that is a bit of a departure from those of other models. And there’s a lot of brightwork in these renderings, not simply on the grille but for comparable pieces that connect the exhaust ideas in the back and tow-hook surrounds in advance. Either by design or engineering, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer also looks larger than the two-row Grand Cherokee.
