While the brand will retain its off-road roots, Jeep will start using new powertrains to improve fuel-economy.

As we’ve heard before, Jeep is planning a seven-seat Grand Wagoneer that will hit markets next year as a 2014 model year vehicle. The model will be built at the same plant as the Grand Cherokee and will compete with the likes of the Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon.

Another vehicle in the works is a subcompact entry-level Jeep that will be sold on global level. The smallest Jeep will be built in Italy alongside the new Fiat 500X crossover. Expected debut time is reported to be in the second quarter of 2014.
