Jeep will release a new full-size SUV in 2022November 14, 2019
A new seven-seater SUV will be assembled at a plant in Michigan, and its sales will begin in 2022. It will be equipped with an independent suspension, as well as a power plant from RAM.
Not so long ago, the American automaker replenished its lineup with a pickup truck and crossovers, but it lacks a three-row SUV. FCA will fix this by reviving its old Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models for its two cars.
The first images of future models that should go on sale in 2022 have already been published on the Internet. It is known that new items will be produced at a facility in Michigan.
Earlier photos of test mules appeared that serve to test the new Wagoneer. In some pictures, the rear independent suspension is noticeable. It turns out that the Ram rear drive axle has been replaced by it – this will provide more space for third-row passengers in the cabin.
Experts’ ideas about the appearance of the future three-row SUV are based on the Jeep Yuntu concept car, presented a couple of years ago at the Shanghai Motor Show. In the end, the concept turned into a serial car Grand Commander – a seven-seater crossover that will be sold only in the Chinese market. However, many Yuntu design elements can influence the Jeep Wagoneer SUV style.
It is expected that the power plant will be borrowed from the Ram 1500. However, judging by the FCA roadmap, both new items should receive hybrid units.
