Report: Rumored Jeep Grand Wagoneer revival to happen by 2018, to be range topper

It’s been rumored for quite some time now that Jeep was eventually going to begin work on a new range-topping crossover to sit above every other Jeep model out there, complete with plans to call it the Grand Wagoneer. And yes, it’s going to be a large seven-seat crossover with luxury appointments. But more so, this Jeep will be built to compete directly against the pinnacle SUV crossover of them all, the Range Rover.

This will make Jeep gurus extremely happy since the last Grand Wagoneer was a product of when AMC and Chrysler/Jeep were tied together…and no, I’m not talking about that ZJ model year Grand Wagoneer branded Grand Cherokee from the 1990s. I’m talking about the massive behemoth that was once the poster child for this country’s middle-American outdoorsy family stereotypical vehicle of the 1970s-1980s, pictured above.

After speaking with Jeep’s Michael Manley, AutoCar learned the new Grand Wagoneer will be a “big focus and will fill out the brand at the top,” quoting Mr. Manley.

The Jeep however is being designed to give some breathing room for the incoming Maserati Levante, if one feared of product overlap.

“Maserati and Jeep are two very different brands,” Manley emphasized. “The Levante will pay in a part of the market that Jeep is not playing in.”
