Jeep management does not refuse to create 7-seater grand

As you know, more than once the fate of the potential flagship of the Jeep SUV Grand Wagoneer became a topic for discussion in the media. However, the company's management did not close the project completely.

It is reported that the development of a luxury 7-seater Jeep Grand Wagoneer, which was to become a competitor to SUVs such as the Mercedes-Benz GLS and Range Rover, was simply suspended, but will be released in the future. At the moment, Jeep simply does not have the means to not only bring the creation of a new product to its logical conclusion, but also to prepare a production site for it.

The FCA Alliance has already invested in the re-equipment of two enterprises in the United States, so the plant in Michigan, which was supposed to produce Grand Wagoneer, while waiting for its turn. Currently, Ram frame pickups are bulging out at this plant.

Due to the lack of finance, the alliance also postpones the deep modernization of heavy pickups, which should have received a new platform by 2018. Instead, when changing the generations of the most hard-working Ram, the manufacturers intend to keep the current chassis for pick-ups and restrict themselves to less large-scale modifications - this will allow for some time not to invest in the re-equipment of another plant in Mexico, where they are created.

It is not excluded that Jeep is counting on revenues from those new products that still have to appear on the market. This is a new generation of the Jeep Wrangler SUV, the “top-end” Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the new Ram 1,500, due out by 2018
