The 2014 model year will see the return of the Grand Wagoneer badge to a Jeep. Set to arrive in 2013 it will share its underpinnings with the Dodge Durango, with three rows and seven seats. Likely to be offered with both the Pensatar V6 and the Hemi V8, this model could be the first use of Chrysler’s new 8-speed automatic transmission in a Jeep. That same auto-box is expected to make its way into the Grand Cherokee as well.

In addition, Jeep is planning three new Fiat-based models, all of which are expected to arrive right around the same time. First up will be a new sub-compact Jeep designed for the North American and Latin America market. For the compact class, Jeep will unveil its replacement for the Compass, based on Fiat’s CUSW platform. Offered in both front and all-wheel drive versions, the first CUSW-based model to arrive will be a new Alfa Romeo crossover in 2012, so look for much of that vehicle to be carried over. While the Patriot is expected to be axed, the Liberty will live on, representing the future of the mid-size Jeep and using a larger version of the CUSW platform, appropriately named CUSW Plus.

All four models are expected to arrive some time in 2013, as 2014 model year cars, representing a refresh of almost the entire Jeep lineup.

The Jeep Grand Wagoneer is one of the most iconic vehicles produced by the brand, with a major aftermarket industry dedicated to faithfully restoring and preserving existing Wagoneers.

“It’s time we gave the market an upper-scale Grand Wagoneer,” Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne told Automotive News. “You’ll see it in January 2013.” While the Wrangler defined Jeep’s rugged off-road appeal, the Wagoneer was the first upscale luxury SUV, and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne is hoping to evoke memories of the truck when it launches the new Wagoneer. With 7 seats, the three row vehicle will slot above the Grand Cherokee and likely act as Jeep’s flagship.
