The concept also features LED projector headlights surrounded by genuine teak wood – a detail unlikely to make its way to production – in reference to the original Wagoneer’s wooden side panelling. Prevalent front tow hooks and a chunky black aluminium skid plate hint at its off-road capability.
The Grand Wagoneer concept features trapezoidal wheel arches like Jeep’s production cars but has 24in aluminium wheels, which – as is often the way with concept cars – will be downsized for showrooms. The copper-finished badges on the doors, bearing a new font designed specifically for the concept, will likely make production, though.
Also likely to feature on the production car are the concept’s wraparound LED rear light clusters, subtle rear diffuser, roof rails and panoramic sunroof.
The Grand Wagoneer’s interior will offer a seven-seat layout for the first time in the model’s history and marks a radical shift away from the firm’s customarily utilitarian cabin design language.
Large windows, together with the full-length glass roof, offer comprehensive all-round visibility. Glass has also been used throughout the cabin itself as it’s a “sustainable, fully recyclable material that provides environmental benefits and is made of an abundant natural raw material”, according to Jeep.
A black glass trim element runs the width of the concept’s dashboard and aluminium has been used for the dashboard support, speaker surrounds and gearstick. In a further nod to the model’s heritage, wood inlays feature on the instrument display and door panels.
Additional sustainable materials used on the concept include Dinamica microfibre suede for the headliner, recycled ‘Thrive’ carpets and ‘PUR’ synthetic upholstery on the seats, doors, console and instrument panel.
