Jeep Yuntu Concept Blends Rugged Styling With A High-Tech Interior

Jeep has released new pictures of the Yuntu concept ahead of its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show.

Set to be unveiled tomorrow, the Yuntu is a stylish and rugged crossover which successfully blends classic Jeep DNA with its own unique sense of style.

The front is dominated by a large bumper and a seven slot grille which is flanked by slender LED headlights. We can also see a blacked out A-pillar, flush-mounted door handles, and some plastic body cladding. Other highlights include a panoramic glass roof, suicide rear doors, and large alloy wheels.

The futuristic interior puts the Grand Cherokee to shame as it features an attractive mix of premium styling and upscale materials. Drivers are treated to a digital instrument cluster, a uniquely shaped steering wheel, and a high-tech infotainment system. Passengers aren’t left out either as the co-pilot gets their own infotainment system, while rear seat passengers get two: one in the headrests and another in the seats. Elsewhere, we can see a floating center console, tasteful wood trim, and gloss black accents on the seat backs.

Little else is known about the concept but previous reports have suggested it will have a plug-in hybrid powertrain and the company says it will deliver an “unprecedented new travel experience.”

The concept is expected to be based on the Cherokee and could preview a seven-seat model for the Chinese market.

    That is a futuristic Interior for a Jeep, they definitely need a 3 row crossover in their line up.

      Jeep seems to be copying everybody else.

    I see some XC90, some Grand Cherokee, a bit of Pacifica, some new Compass and even some new Discovery in this model, but what I don’t see is anything even remotely original.

      I totally agree. Very sad.

  • donald seymour

    Wow, not enough screens.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I can’t believe how large it is standing next to the other models in Jeep’s lineup. Which I like by the way, even if I find it a tad uninspiring.

    • Maxime01

      euh… it’s because it’s in the foreground and the lineup is in the background…

      • MarketAndChurch

        Maybe you’re right. That interior still looks pretty large, with its third row seating.

    WTF is up with all the screens? That doesn’t say “luxury” to me. It is more like being in the Minority Report. Or stuck in the back of a NY cab. It would be absolutely dreary to be in a car full of a bunch of ADD people who are zoned-out in their own world of Netflix and commercials.

    • Enter Ranting

      When screens show up on soft drink machines, they’re not interesting or high-tech anymore.

  • Puddingpopper

    11 screens!

  • Six Thousand Times

    I’ll be unsurprised if this ends up replacing the Cherokee. This, or something a lot like it.

    Grand Wagoneer hello

  • getoffme

    Blatant copy of the Volvo concept.

  • TheHake

    Looks Volvo-ey. But I like it. Trail-rate it!
