Jeep Plans on Introducing a Seven Seated Luxury SUV to Challenge the Audi Q7
|   Tuesday, June 04, 2013
Jeep is considering the option of adding a seven seated SUV to its already stacked lineup of vehicles and this comes at a time the company is trying to evolve out of its old image. This is just a rumor at the moment and no final calls have been made so far by the bosses. However, even if such a vehicle comes out of the house of Jeep anytime in the future, it will not reach the United Kingdom anytime soon as Jeep considers its size to be too great for the need of the UK market.


This decision is completely a managerial one and is being taken to challenge the Audi Q7 4 x 4 (seven seared) in its own territory. Jeep has witnessed a steady increase in sales and a new model will act favorably for the company at the moment. The bosses have even considered a nameplate for the machine – Grand Wagoneer – which would also revive the nameplate used back in the 90s.

The idea for reviving the Grand Wagoneer came at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012 and Jeep has been considering the idea of introducing an urban SUV to their lineup. The segment of up market SUVs featuring a stiff competition in the market and Jeep wants to bring a new competitor to rival the big players in their own game.

The Jeep Commander was the last seven seated SUV from the house of the Jeep, but the vehicle was discontinued three years back. Dodge, however still manufactures a seven seated SUV known as the Durango, which is designed on the same platform as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This vehicle is manufactured at Detroit and Jeep is most likely to manufacture a smaller SUV based on the same platform.

Jeep has officially confirmed that no new vehicles will be come out of its stables before 2015 – 16 although a smaller B Segment vehicle could be announced and be up for launch very soon. Jeep plans on launching this vehicle by 2014 and this will be an entry level SUV in the segment or could be a cross over. However, the biggest story at the moment is the Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
