New Report Says The Jeep Grand Wagoneer Is Cancelled: Yeah, OK

Rumor

We're not buying this for a second.

Jeep has been throwing us for a loop lately. First we hear that it's working on a new entry-level mode. Then at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show Jeep’s design, chief, Mark Allen, says that he’s not working on anything like that. Adding further confusion is this new report from Autoline which says the new Grand Wagoneer has been cancelled. The source of this news is AutoForecast Solutions, an automotive consulting company. So, why has Jeep supposedly cancelled its plans for a new top-tier model?

We won’t steal Autoline’s thunder. Sorry, you’ll just have to watch the video to find out. The good news is that the Grand Wagoneer story is the lead so you won’t have to watch the entire thing.

So, what do we make of this report? Well, we sort of just assumed that the new Grand Wagoneer would use the Grand Cherokee’s architecture. To us the project was about combining luxury and speed, think a Grand Cherokee SRT in a shiny suit, or, if you’re adventurous, a Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in an even shinier suit. The fact that Jeep feels the need to go larger is a bit of a surprise. If the Ram platform is used, as Autoline suggests, that would give the Grand Wagoneer a body-on-frame design, a rarity in the luxury SUV world. If you ask us that’s a non-starter, as is the idea of Jeep scrapping this project. The automaker is on a roll and could probably just roll out a Grand Cherokee covered in gold, price it at $100,000 and make a killing.
