A spy photo that emerged from a Jeep dealer meeting offers a glimpse of the upcoming Grand Wagoneer and confirms how closely a redesigned 2018 Wrangler will stick to the off-roader's current styling.
A poster photographed at the recent meeting shows lighting signatures for five nameplates in the future lineup, including what appears to be a Grand Wagoneer that is decidedly taller and wider than the current Grand Cherokee. The Compass, which debuts in North America next month in Los Angeles, does not appear on the poster.
The Grand Wagoneer has seven LEDs per headlight on either side of a widened seven-slot chrome grille that emulates the current Grand Cherokee front fascia, though with a more aggressive look. LED lighting is also used on the lower fog lights, above what appear to be sensor or camera arrays.
In a rear image of the Grand Wagoneer, each horizontal taillight array also carries seven LEDs across a widened tailgate above the twin exhaust ports.
The three-row Grand Wagoneer will ride on a stretched version of the next-generation Grand Cherokee platform and will share a number of the smaller vehicle's styling cues.
Jeep brand head Mike Manley has said that the Grand Wagoneer, due for the 2019 model year, will rival Land Rover in luxury and price. Last month at the Paris auto show, Manley said the price could approach $140,000.
The lighting poster also reveals some details of the next-generation Jeep Wrangler that goes into production next year. The poster shows that designers haven't fiddled much with the front end of the iconic off-roader, though its tailgate and rear LED lights would seem to carry on the jerrycan design of the Jeep Renegade.
