Jeep Three-Row SUV Details Emerge

Earlier this year, Jeep announced that it was going to add a new vehicle to its lineup, but did not release any details at the time. All we knew was that it was going to be a three-row model. A few months back, FCA CEO Mike Manley spoke to Auto Express, and during the interview, he revealed more details about this upcoming three-row model, albeit very little. However, the information he shared did help us paint a better picture of this model shrouded with mystery. First, we know that the three-row model will be positioned above the Grand Cherokee but below the Grand Wagoneer. Manley said during the interview that even though there are “relatively few competitors” in the large SUV segment, it could work in favor of Jeep and that they plan to bring back Wagoneer at this time. He added that the three-row Jeep will be “technically” in the same segment as the Grand Cherokee. Since about, 60 percent of this segment is made up of three-rows, and Grand Cherokee has only played in about 40 percent. He also believes that the new three-row SUV will be able to ease into that segment.

A possible game-changer for Jeep
Grand Cherokee is a five-seater and is the only SUV that Jeep currently has against its major competitors, such as the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, and Chevrolet Traverse. Besides, when it comes to midsize SUVs, the Grand Cherokee isn’t usually the first option for people who want more seats as it can only seat up to five people. However, with the arrival of the new three-row, it appears that Jeep will now have a true competitor to these vehicles. As mentioned before, the New Jeep three-row SUV will sit between the Grand Cherokee and the Grand Wagoneer. This means that the Grand Wagoneer will still be a larger, more luxurious and well-equipped SUV than the mystery three-row model. In the interview, Manley also shared that since the Grand Cherokee is such an iconic model, he chooses to refer to the \upcoming model as a new three-row Jeep. This implies that a new model name will be picked for the vehicle as well.
