Marchionne: Jeep will resurrect Grand Wagoneer nameplate for 7-passenger SUV

Jeep Grand Cherokee
Here at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show, Chrysler Group LLC CEO Sergio Marchionne said that Jeep will resurrect its ‘Grand Wagoneer’ nameplate for a 7-seater SUV that will be built on the same platform as the Grand Cherokee and the Dodge Durango.

“It’s time we gave the market an upper-scale Grand Wagoneer,” Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said today. “You’ll see it in January 2013.”

The Jeep Grand Wagoneer was a part of Jeep’s lineup dating from its introduction in 1963 to the last model that was sold in 1991. It ended its life as a luxury vehicle, selling to wealthy buyers.
