LEAKED: This Is Jeep's Seven-Seat Grand Commander

Leaked

This will be Jeep's largest SUV in the range.

We have been hearing for a while now that Jeep wants to build a three-row replacement for the old Commander. These rumors were given a bit more credence when some patent images were leaked in China. Now, Car News China has much more concrete proof of the large Jeep SUV in the form of several leaked images. These images show the entire front and rear of the vehicle, various trim and badge details, as well as the most important detail, the SUV's name. The large Jeep SUV will be known as the Grand Commander.

The 2018 Detroit Auto Show seemed like it would be a good place to reveal a vehicle like this, but Jeep decided to bring a slightly refreshed version of the Cherokee instead. The Grand Commander is set to be revealed in April at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show. The styling is heavily based on the Jeep Yuntu Concept, which was shown off at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. Power reportedly comes from a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that also powers the new Jeep Wrangler with two versions producing 234 hp and 265 hp respectively. The SUV will be built in China under the Guangzhou-Fiat joint venture project.

Pricing is expected to start at 250,000 yuan (around $38,000). So far, two trims levels have been leaked including Longitude and Limited models. There will also be four different wheels available. Oddly enough, it sounds like this will be a China-only model and Jeep has no intention of selling it in the US. This comes as a bit of a surprise, because we think that a seven-seat version of the Grand Cherokee with the 707-hp Trackhawk engine would sell like crazy in the US. Perhaps the US will get its own version of this SUV with the rumored Grand Wagoneer name.
