The Jeep Grand Wagoneer is coming closer to being a reality.
According to Jeep global boss Mike Manley, the three-row SUV will be a key part to the American automaker’s growth in the U.S. and Australian markets and will also serve as a flagship as it competes at in the premium SUV segment. It is likely that the vehicle will make its debut in production form late next year before going on sale in 2016.
Speaking at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne hinted that the Wrangler’s production could be moved out from its current Toledo plant, making that plant a possibility for the Grand Wagoneer’s production. Marchionne believes that the Grand Wagoneer will be able to compete with other luxury three-row SUVs on the market including Land Rover’s newest models.
In the same report, Manley also confirmed that Jeep is on track to sell over one million vehicles this year and is aiming to almost double that by 2018.
