Jeep's upcoming Grand Wagoneer looks like a redesigned 2018 Wrangler, keeping its classic seven-slat grille. Leaked images from a Jeep dealer meeting show the front and rear ends of this new luxurious vehicle, which might very well be America's next big SUV.

The upcoming Grand Wagoneer model look is evolutionary, featuring seven LEDs per headlight on both sides of a widened seven-slot chromed grille, sharing a lot of its look with the Grand Cherokee, as the Grand Wagoneer's similarly shaped headlights, complete with a unique LED dot pattern that's never seen before, are allegedly featured prominently in the upcoming vehicle. 

Overall, the upcoming three-row Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUV, which is speculated to be based on a stretched version of the next-generation Grand Cherokee platform, seems to be taller and wider than the Grand Cherokee, while sharing a number of the smaller vehicle's styling cues. This gives the vehicle much more presence on the road, according to Automotive News.

The Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are expected to utilize a stretched version of the next-generation Grand Cherokee's platform and are speculated to arrive on the market in 2018. This means that fans would probably see the vehicles as 2019 models. The Grand Wagoneer will be particularly plush as well, with Jeep CEO Mike Manley stating that some versions could nudge the $140,000 mark due to their amenities and passenger comfort features, according to Motor Authority.

Jeep is inevitably anticipating that the new Grand Wagoneer will recall fond memories of the wood-paneled Wagoneer that was popular rather than company's more recent struggle at a three-row SUV, the comparably short-lived Commander.

Stay tuned for more information to come sometime in 2018 as FCA prepares to completely pull the wraps off this highly anticipated revival of the Grand Wagoneer.
