An American seven-seat option is coming.
Jeep has just confirmed that it is adding some extra vehicles to its line-up in the future, in the form of a Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Details are fairly scant at the moment, but let’s look at what we do know:

These two models will be bigger and more expensive than the Grand Cherokee, giving a full seven-seat option to the American marque. At the moment, the Grand Cherokee competes with the LandCruiser Prado, the Wagoneer will face up to the 200 Series LandCruiser, Nissan Patrol and Land Rover Discovery.
The Grand Wagoneer, on the other hand, will become a flagship luxury model, which is rumoured to be priced within six figures, competing with the likes of Range Rovers, high-spec LandCruisers and the Lexus LX570.
There’s no word yet on what kind of towing these units will be capable of, but they are slated to have a full ladder chassis and good off-road capability, so a 3.5-tonne towing capacity should be part of the equation. There isn’t confirmation it will make it to Australia, but we’d wager a good bet that it will.
