Default Jeep Grand Commander three-row crossover SUV revealed in Beijing

Jeep Grand Commander three-row crossover SUV revealed in Beijing
Jeep has finally revealed its first three-row SUV since the Commander, and the new one is called, as we expected, Grand Commander.

And it looks just like we expected from leaked images and patent drawings. It pulls a bit of inspiration from the Jeep Yuntu concept, but it generally looks like a much bigger, stretched-out Compass. We do see a bit of Renegade inspiration in the D-pillar, though.

Interestingly, the Grand Commander isn't really bigger than our Grand Cherokee. The Grand Commander is just under 192 inches long, which is only 2 inches longer than the Grand Cherokee. But the Grand Commander's wheelbase is four inches shorter. It's also about two inches narrower than the Grand Cherokee. This is all interesting considering the Grand Commander's greater passenger capacity.

Also interesting is the Grand Commander's powertrain. It's only available with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, likely lifted from the Jeep Cherokee and Wrangler. If so, it's been detuned, and it now makes just 231 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque as opposed to the 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet in the other Jeeps. The Grand Commander's four-cylinder is also paired to a nine-speed automatic, and it can be had with either two-wheel or four-wheel drive.

The question of course is, will the Grand Commander come to America? It would fill a gap in the Jeep lineup, since the brand has no three-row vehicles.

There have been many rumors of a three-row Jeep, possibly called Grand Wagoneer, as well as Grand Commander prototypes running around the U.S. But the size of the Grand Commander has us questioning whether it would be brought here, or if Jeep would develop a larger three-row, maybe based on Durango, for our market.





What do you think of it?

Looks more like a luxury soft-roadie, wouldn't be much good for towing with only 2 litres of petrol power. Maybe the basis for a future hybrid?

It is hideous but will probably sell given the lack of a 7seater in the FC lineup. Reaching for my emesis bag.

Should have been a FIAT or Dodge.

Bring back the REAL Commander. Hopefully that car will return someday in the guise of a Wagoneer.

Back to my porcelain bus....
