Jeep Grand Wagoneer Revealed in Patent Filing

12

AutoGuide.com has discovered a new Jeep patent filing with the European Union Intellectual Property Office, giving us a sneak peak at the new Jeep Grand Wagoneer. 

Update: Jeep spokesman Trevor Dorchies replied to our inquiry saying Jeep currently has no comment at this time in regards to the design patent.

Filed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the design patent shows what appears to be a Grand Cherokee, although it is clear that the back end is stretched out to accommodate a third row. The Grand Wagoneer is supposed to ride on a stretched version of the next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee’s platform, though other reports claim that the large SUV will ride on a version of the Ram’s platform.

The Grand Wagoneer is expected to push further into the luxury space, competing with existing vehicles like the Cadillac Escalade and various Land Rover offerings. Last year, Jeep CEO Mike Manley admitted that it could be possible that the new big Jeep SUV could push into the $130,000 to $140,000 territory, although he backpedaled slightly later saying that the price range will be closer to $60,000 to $100,000.

This will be the first three-row Jeep since the Commander was discontinued in 2010 and Jeep is trying to steal customers from aspirational brands like Land Rover.

It is believed the Jeep Grand Wagoneer will arrive by 2018 as a 2019 model year, though other reports say it could arrive by 2020.

    Overall, I like it. There’s a nice harmony on the front clip, and a combination of old and new at the D-pillar. The only issue I have is that the overall length combined with the Renegade version of the Hofmeister kink at the rear beltline does give it a bit of minivan ambience back there.

  • William Chambers

    It looks like a Durango with he jeep front end to me.

  • MindFog2287

    So basically, a Dodge Durango.

  • MindFog2287

    Exactly.

  • Chris W

    Yep, what a disappointment. I was hoping for something more like the Commander.

  • Ed

    another disappointment from FCA… first came the fugly Cherokee, then came the compass, then the patriot, then this crap.

  • Donald Barnett

    Looks like a bash up of the compass, renegade, GC, and Durango. Nothing bad just nothing new.

  • MindFog2287

    I’m hoping this is just something they needed to do for the paperwork, and nowhere near a final model. But I’m not optimistic, since they styling cues here don’t vary from the very limited pieces we’ve seen from the dealer info sheets that got leaked.

    I love most Jeeps but that looks beastly.

    They better equip it with an efficient diesel or it will be a very thirsty vehicle.
    But then people who can drop 80K for a Jeep can probably afford 14mpg.

  • Alex Wedde

    No, that not big suv as chevy suburban. it is still size as ford explorer or dodge Durango and tires won’t be 32″ due chevy sharp tightness block push limited tires size, and it support be 45 degree angle as real jeep’s way. 3rd row will be uncomfortable as ford explorer.

  • Laundru Patton

    Looks like a Durango to me so far in those patent pics.

  • SYO

    Bring back the original, classic design.
