Confirmed: Jeep Wagoneer To Return In 2013


The original Jeep Wagoneer was a vehicle far ahead of its time. While it wasn't the first SUV, it was the first to have a real modern take on the idea. This made for an amazingly long production run, especially considering that the SUV craze only really took off after the Wagoneer had been killed. Now that SUV enthusiasm is waning, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has announced that the name will be making a comeback in the 2013 Grand Wagoneer.

It will have seven seats and be built on the same platform as the Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango. Marchionne has said we'll be able to have our first look at it in January 2013, presumably at the Detroit Auto Show. If it seems odd to you that Jeep only want to sell the Wagoneer during periods when SUVs aren't popular, we'd have to say that we don't get it either.
