7 seater?

Was just on another forum that I frequent and I noticed a post on there saying that they were waiting to order a new 7 seater Jeep petrol V8 next year.

Anyone know anything about this?

Re: 7 seater?

Grand Wagoneer, was due to be released this year, but now postponed until 2015.
They will push the Durango instead as a 7 seater and get that to build up.

A Durango is basically just a Grand Cherokee with 7 seats from my very limited understanding.
Don't expect to see the Durango in Aus as they will not want to take attention away from the GC.


Edit: here is a little article about the date change and overall Jeep plans.

Re: 7 seater?

Thought that was the case. Confirms everything I've read also.
He was adamant that he has been talking to Jeep and it will be available next year.

No doubt another dealer talking out their a55

Or just doesn't have the update on the delay.

Re: 7 seater?

I used to own a Jeep Commander (basically a 7 seat Grand Cherokee but shaped like a brick). It was a great vehicle.
Durango's look OK, but I don't think they are a real 4x4.
A shame that a 7 seater Jeep has been delayed yet again...

Isn't the 7 seater just going to be a Dudango with Jeep grill, QT2 and air suspension? Or is it likely to be a whole new vehicle sitting on the platform if the next GCs?

Check out the rendering of the Wagoneer at allpar

News: Wagoneer vs Durango vs Caravan

I hate to be unkind, but the grille just looks way too much like the 60s era wagoneers. The fake woodie strip I might get used to, but that grille belongs on an Edsel, not a modern Jeep.

Disgusting. However I have now seen several artists impressions, and that is the worst looking yet. Let's also hope it doesn't look like the latest Cherokee...

Re: 7 seater?

Is it just me or does it look similar to the Canyonaro that Homer Simpson came up with?
