Jeep has revealed the official images of the China bound Jeep Grand Commander which was first shown as the Jeep Yuntu Concept last year. Jeep’s Grand Commander is slated to make its official debut at this year’s Beijing auto show in April. The sleek, seven-seat SUV has a long-wheelbase and is made exclusively for the Chinese market. Like the Jeep Yuntu Concept, the Grand Commander shares its sharp, clean lines, slim LED headlights and taillights, a chrome grille, but sadly, it does not have suicide doors.
Power is expected to come from a 2.0 litre petrol with 235bhp with a 9-speed autotmatic gearbox. The China-only model is a joint venture with FCA’s partner Guangzhou Automotive Group that also produces Jeep Cherokees and Renegades for the Chinese market.
While this would be ideal as a 7-seater version of the Compass, there is no information about Jeep getting the Grand Commander to India. But with the new Wrangler expected soon, it will be interesting to see Jeep's expansion plans for the Grand Commander.
