The official premiere of the serial all-terrain vehicle of the American brand is planned for the spring.

In January, Jeep distributed images of a new crossover designed for the Chinese market. The car will be offered in five- and seven-seater versions. It was assumed that the cross will go on sale as Grand Commander, however, according to the information of the Chinese media, the model will have two names: the Grand prefix will receive a three-row modification, and the five-seater all-roads will be called simply Commander.

The design of the new Jeep crossover is based on the concept of Yuntu, which debuted last year. It is expected that the product model will be equipped with a gasoline turbo engine 2.0 with a capacity of 234 or 265 hp, which works in tandem with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Drive – front or full.

The presentation of the new Jeep Commander / Grand Commander will be held in April this year at the Beijing Motor Show. Release of the novelty will be established in China at the joint venture GAC and FCA. It is not yet known whether the crossover will appear in other countries.

Earlier became known that Jeep will remove the old Wrangler from the assembly line for the sake of a new pickup truck.
