I was at our annual car show, here in Cincy. It is not a full zoot, all the coming models / concept car event. It is just the current models for the most part. For example, no Dodge Dart. But naturally enough, Jeep showed a GC Overland Summit - the one we have all seen from the commercials. Top of the line Jeep, all the options. Most expensive thing Jeep makes. It stickered at just under $50K. Not 50 feet away was a GMC Acadia - $50K. Right beside that was a loaded up Tahoe - $60K. That's right - $60,000.00 for a TAHOE. I think there is a lilttle room at the top for a Grand Wagoneer, halo or not.

Realistically if the Wagoneer comes out, it is just going to be a Durango with a different front fascia.

Yep. You are the only one.
Still needs the raised "bump" in the hood.
It'll be real interesting to see how it ends up. Maybe more Commando than Commander?

I hope that will have good off road qualities like other previous jeeps. You know straight axles etc... None of this IFS junk

I'd rate this as an extremely low probability. This would be an entirely new platform, and a new platform just isn't going to happen for the 15 or so customers that want a luxury SUV with solid axles.

Yeah. I talked to a dealer and it's been confirmed.
I'm not too sure how I'd like it being on the Durango platform and all.
And he said there's a slight possibilty (wink wink) that we'll get a pick up.

I got my hands on the Durango at the Geneva Motor show a few weeks ago, and I have to say I was disappointed. It had a very cheap feel to it, I didn't like the way how the 2nd and 3rd row seats were built (cheap, low comfort level), the chassis lacked character, and the 3rd row is actually smaller than in the Commander. This is because the luggage space behind the 3rd row is bigger than in the Commander (actually usable when the 3rd row is in use), but as a compromise didnt' work.

I like the looks of the body "ok", but it just really didn't please me otherwise. I still prefer the Commander over the Durango any day even in on-road usage. And why am I saying this? Since the Wagoneer is apparently going to be based on the Durango like up to 90%, and if that's the case, it'll be a pass in our family.

It needs the wood.
It needs the bump in the hood line and an homage to the Gladiator grille.
It needs the interior quality of the GC Overland Summit.
It needs the 6.4 Hemi (well, O.K. I'll settle for the 6.1 for the sake of economy).

All I need is a second job.
The 6.4L Hemi is better on gas. lol

Isn't that the truth?!
I drove my Waggy to work this morning.
All downhill 5 miles - still watched the needle drop.
But, I did it in style.

All of those look like second hand garbage. Garbage that you will pay as much as a small house for, and get legendary Italian wiring and reliability. I'll pass. For a long time.

Looks like somebody sat on a Grand Cherokee.
Reminds me of how long and low the Dodge Magnum looked. Why they ever came out with a station wagon version of the Charger first, I'll never know.
