Re: 2019 jeep grand cherokee WL?

I wouldn't call that a redesign, more like refresh

Re: 2019 jeep grand cherokee WL?

Nope!!...that looks pretty much identical to the upcoming 2018 Jeep Compass (or Com-Patriot, as some have called it)...and Jeep will not want it's current flagship to be confused with a cheaper downmarket model...it will probably give the newly redesigned JGC is own identity, especially given that the Grand Wagoneer will available as well & slot above it.

Plus with the new Jeep Compass hitting the market before the next-gen JGC, it wouldn't be a smart move for them to imitate the design of a cheaper model...as they need to WOW the consumer public, not make them "Sigh!".

Jeep appears to to be giving each & every one of it's new upcoming models their own unique personality & identity.

So, good try...but nope...not even close, IMHO.

I believe they are going to play this one very close to the chest, until auto show time at least.

PEACE!!

Re: 2019 jeep grand cherokee WL?

I was disappointed by how the re-freshed compass always looked like an early WK2. I hope they keep the product design language more differentiated. To me, the then-compass took alot of the class out of the WK2, which was resolved with the refresh.

The renegade is a great product in that it doesn't overly mimic other Jeep product available today. It has Wrangler DNA and yet it is clearly a playful compact CUV

Re: 2019 jeep grand cherokee WL?

Looks nothing more than a photoshop to me...and a bad one at that. Couldn't possibly be the next generation anyway as it has WK2 body panels with exception to the photoshopped sections.

Re: 2019 jeep grand cherokee WL?

And the wk3/WL will be a slight alteration to the wk2

Re: 2019 jeep grand cherokee WL?

That is even uglier than the 2017 SRT front end!! I didn't think that was possible . . . .??

So is that why someone added the WK3 to this section?

I was thinking it was time for a whole new platform/redesign but the WK2 is a good design so an update/refresh if done right isn't a bad thing.
