Guess What 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Will Be
The rumors about the upcoming resurrection of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer nameplate aren’t thorough, but the mere fact that the moniker will be revived is exciting enough. The automaker is still mysterious about it. Reportedly, the 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer won’t be a remade version of the famous wagon. The nameplate will be used for the upscale iteration of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee. Aside from the regular version, the SUV will come as a luxury seven-seater which will be named after the famous ancestor. It’s still hard to anticipate whether the 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is going to use some of the indigenous style of the Grand Wagoneer or it’s going to use just its name. Needless to say, using the famous name has a great marketing potential, but it would be a shame if they decide not to exploit the classic style of the American legend.
What Can We Expect?
The new 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will probably share the platform with the new-generation Grand Cherokee. The Grand Wagoneer would be larger, with more space inside and, expectedly, a longer wheelbase, but the size difference won’t be that big. Its appearance will be based on the Grand Cherokee, but we can expect some noticeable exterior differences. The 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be a really top-drawer SUV whose luxury level will be able to compete with the most prominent upscale SUVs on the market. Making a new luxury SUV using an old, recognizable nameplate has its logic. The automaker is aware of what the Grand Wagoneer name means and this is a subtle homage to the legend. Since the SUV will come with the best possible luxurious interior and undoubtedly great performance, the revival of the Grand Wagoneer name will probably be better than anyone expected.
2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Release
As a part of the brand’s expansion, the 2018 Grand Wagoneer is scheduled to come sometime in 2017 as a 2018 model. After the debut of the redesigned Grand Cherokee, the top-notch Grand Wagoneer will be yet another surprise to the SUV market segment.
