2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Possibly Set For Dealer Show Reveal In Vegas
Jeep dealers heading out to Vegas for the brand’s biennial show in August may have a grand surprise waiting: the 2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
The revived nameplate will grace an SUV set to be the most expensive Jeep-branded SUV ever, according to Automotive News, and is aimed at those customers who normally shop for high-end SUVs from Range Rover, Porsche and BMW.
The speculated Vegas debut also contradicts FCA’s recent announcement of delaying key models to reduce overall investment into the products, which include the Grand Wagoneer and its platform sibling, the Grand Cherokee. The two SUVs were scheduled to hit showrooms in the fall of 2017 and 2018, but the introduction of the Grand Cherokee may be delayed up to a year, while the Grand Wagoneer may miss its own deadline, as well.
The previous Grand Wagoneer left the assembly line for the last time in 1991, having been in production relatively unchanged since 1962, aside from numerous facelifts and other necessary adaptations for the time.

I work in global marketing. I know a little
Plastic is the future. Plastic wood grained sides that is. Wonder if they will even have that as an option.
I hope the seats are the leather cloth mix like the ones in my parents '84 GW. They were fantastic. Tired of leather with leather or pleather.
Watching this space with over-the-horizon interest.
