The Grand Wagoneer is going to be a huge flop. But it maybe my next used car when people get f'ed on the resale
It will if it looks likes this.

Personally I really like the look of the new Durango, maybe even more so then the WK2.

Re: Should the 2011 Durango have been developed/marketed as a "Grand Cherokee XL" ?

I know thisis the Durango section but I feel compelled....

Here's the 2013 Grand Wagoneer article from Motor Trend: http://wot.motortrend.com/jeep-resur...del-22927.html

"Concept Photoshop" from the June issue of Automobile Magazine, certainly not official

If it looks anything like this the styling reminds me of the Mercedes GL (fog lights are identical). Which, stands to reason seeing as the WK2 (And Durango) is built off of the MLs underpinings.

I'm hoping for a geat looking Wagoneer. We will be looking to replace the wifes R350 in 2014/2015 and given the choices right now it will be replaced with a GL. If the Grand Wagoneer can compete with the luxury 7-seater segement (QX56, Escalade, GL, LX 470 in the way the WK2 has competed in the mid-size segment then we will be all over it.

I personally like the look of the Durango (the Black Citadel's like the picture above look awesome) with the exception of the rear tailights and the chrome trim above the liftgate license plate; too much for me.

The Durango Citadel is one of the best, if not the best, looking SUV on the market right now IMO

Durango is nothing but badge engineering. Was and still is.
