Jeep Plans to Preview Revitalized Grand Wagoneer This Summer

1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

In a move to compete with luxury SUVs of the present, Jeep is reportedly bringing back its classic Grand Wagoneer for the 2018 model year. You may remember the woody mammoth from back roads past as the quintessential people mover of the ’70s and ’80s, and this latest model promises to hold true to that reputation. Except unlike the Grand Wagoneer you’d find back then, this new, souped-up version will include a fully modern powertrain more amenable to the times.

The plan is to build out the 2018 Grand Wagoneer using a platform similar to the redesigned 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The major difference, though, is that the new Grand Wagoneer will include three glorious rows of seating, which is more than enough for the entire family. While it remained largely unchanged during its original reign from1963 to 1991, this new Grand Wagoneer promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

According to Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, it’s designed to compete with Land Rover in the upper luxury region of the SUV market. The revitalized Grand Wagoneer is something FCA has been working on for a while but has been waiting to reveal until the perfect time.

Fiat Chrysler plans to reveal this throwback to representatives from U.S. Jeep dealers at its biennial showcase in Las Vegas at the end of the summer. This will be the first three-row SUV in the automaker’s lineup since the Jeep Commander, which went out of production in 2010.

While we don’t know yet whether you’ll be able to purchase the 2018 Grand Wagoneer with its illustrious wood paneling, we do know that we’re eager to see all that the 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer has to offer for drivers near our Concord, NH, Jeep dealership. We’ll keep you posted as we hear updates!
