The Jeep Grand Commander has been leaked in Chinese patent images. It is a seven-seat version of the Cherokee and was showcased as the Jeep Yuntu Concept last year. The production version will see the light of day next year and be manufactured in China at a Guangzhou-Fiat facility.
The patent images show that the Grand Commander’s face stays quite similar to the Yuntu. However, the rear end looks a bit different compared to the concept car because Jeep has extended the glass area all the way to edges. Apart from the patent images, our sources have revealed that for the Chinese market, the Grand Commander will make use of the same 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol motor from the latest generation Wrangler.
The Grand Commander will debut at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show in production guise and probably be launched at the same time too. It is too early to predict if the Grand Commander will come to India but since all the Grand Cherokee’s rivals are seven-seaters, there is potential for the Grand Commander in the domestic market.
