The American SUV manufacturer has finally given a preview of the new Jeep Grand Commander SUV ahead of its official debut at this year’s Beijing Motor Show. The auto show is scheduled to happen in April, 2018. Official pictures and details of the premium 7-seater SUV have been revealed by the carmaker. The 2018 Jeep Grand Commander seems heavily inspired by the Yuntu concept that broke cover at the Shanghai Motor Show previous year. In China, the SUV will be offered in two trims – Longitude and Limited – with FWD (front-wheel-drive) and (4WD) four-wheel-drive system.
The 2018 Jeep Grand Commander is a China-specific product that will go on sale towards the end of this year. Currently, there is no official word about its India launch. However, the likelihood of the SUV making it to our market can’t be ignored. Just so know, Jeep entered India in 2016 with two products – Grand Cherokee and Wrangler. However, both the vehicles failed to accomplish the company’s expectations.
The product that has actually helped it gained traction in the Utility Vehicle segment is its locally manufactured Compass SUV. In fact, the market share of FCA India increased massive in the first half of the fiscal year 2018. Now, the company aims to further strengthen its market with the Renegade compact SUV and a new sub 4-meter SUV that will hit Indian roads in coming years.
