The seven-seater SUV Jeep was tested on the streets of America. This highly masked test mule is our first look at the new Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

By the time sales begin, he will become a premium competitor for cars such as the Range Rover, BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne. However, Jeep is not yet sure whether the SUV will be sold in Europe or the UK. Judging from the latest spy shots, Grand Wagoneer will draw inspiration from Jeep’s biggest car, Grand Cherokee. He will get a similar front panel with a pair of narrow LED headlights and a radiator grille with a signature badge. The tail lights and tailgate design will also be borrowed from the Grand Cherokee.

Above the rear axle, the car has enough space for the third row of seats, which, unlike rivals such as the Mercedes GLE and Land Rover Discovery, can be a full-size sofa. The interior of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer should also be entirely copied from the flagship model of the Grand Cherokee brand. Standard equipment will include an 8.4-inch infotainment screen, digital dashboard, Harman Kardon audio system and leather upholstery.

It is expected that to compensate for the extra mass, the Grand Wagoneer will be available only with the most powerful Jeep engines, including a 3.0-liter V6 rated at 247 hp. for the entry-level version and the 6.2-liter Hemi V8 supercharged with 700 hp in the top line. Both engines will be offered with an automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Thus, if Grand Wagoneer enters the UK market, it could be the first Jeep worth more than £ 100,000. Speaking at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, Jeep CEO Mike Manley said, “I don’t think there is a maximum ceiling for Jeep as such. If you look at the top of the market in the US, for me, a well-made Grand Wagoneer can compete all along the segment. ”
