Jeep Grand Commander Revealed For China

Jeep has unveiled the all-new Grand Commander in a promotional video for the upcoming crossover.

Previewed by the Yuntu concept, the production model has a familiar design but adopts a more conservative front fascia with a slender grille and LED headlights.  The crossover has also been equipped with a bulging hood, squared off wheel arches, and a gently sloping roof.  Other notable features include a panoramic glass roof, a dual exhaust system, and plenty of chrome trim.

Jeep didn’t release interior photos but the Grand Commander is slated to have seven seats which should make it appealing to larger families.

Performance specifications remain unconfirmed but the company’s Chinese website appears to mention a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission.  This matches up with previous rumors which have suggested the Grand Commander would use a four-cylinder engine sourced from the Wrangler.

The crossover is expected to debut at the Beijing Motor Show which kicks off in April.  The model will be built in China and is only expected to be sold in its home market.

American consumers looking for a seven-seat Jeep will have to wait until the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are launched.  The models are expected to be introduced next year and they will be built alongside the next-generation Ram Heavy Duty pickups at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Michigan.

    I’m actually quite impressed by the looks of it. It’s not bad at all, I only hope the US version looks a little more distinctive.

      Will there be a US version?

      • LWOAP

        Probably not.

    It’s a bit generically “Jeep” but it’s not un-handsome…

    It’s ugly enough for China.

    Now where is the Grand Wagoneer. That is the one everyone wants to see.

    It looks good. Reminds me of a Volvo.

  • TheBelltower

    Looks rather good, if unspectacular. Though Jeep is getting a little too much mileage out of this basic design. There are now four vehicles that are essentially different sized sausages.

  • sidewaysspin

    I now understand why it looks flattened, it’s the chinese look, they probably like it over there.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Better than the slyshots.

  • Bash

    Love the front, looks sleek, looks like they took the older Durango back and tried to make it more upscale, have too the interior tho.

  • Carmelo Van Cabboi

    Quite impressed. Very nice design, I really like the front end

  • StrangerGP

    it looks like it’s been squashed by the press a little

  • Knotmyrealname

    Jeeez the rear end sketch is almost a direct LR ripoff.

  • exeptor

    I like it, although it is has some strange similarities with several models (something in the looks says Toyota, the back reminds me of LR Discovery and maybe something small from BMW X7 concept, which very well be influenced by the color :))

  • Maher

    I see they decided to borrow BMW 2018 5 series headlights?

  • THE REAR HAS SHADES OF DISCOVERY/VELAR.

  • Gerald Michael

    Jeep sure built a nice-looking Chrysler. So how soon before they build a minivan?

    Even if everyone seems to like it, I’ll be the one to say I don’t.
    It’s like they tried way too hard top make the exterior look bulky, and most likely, the reason for that is the Chinese market wants big and impressive stuff. Just like VW’s Atlas missing the subtle design touches of the Touareg (I’d never thought I’ll say something like that, but I guess times change), the Commander is missing the finer details of the Grand Cherokee.
