    Car and Driver had the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer listed on its "25 Cars Worth Waiting For" page and this was the rendering they used. Unsure of the accuracy of this but thought it was worth sharing. I think the rear end/overhang/tail lights looks off, but I also haven't seen the real deal.

    The approach and especially the departure angles could be a lot better.

    Love the macho front bumper. The proportions on the back and the wheels are wayyyy off though. Those look like R24s on the front, R20s on the back. Also the "extended" part in the back slopes down slightly, whereas I see it being blockier to the back.

    I think it would look better and possibly more realistic if the wheelbase was extended, which would also decrease the rear overhang. And I believe those wheels were ripped off of a new Compass Limited.

    Good, it looks too much like a Traverse or Pathfinder competitor.

    I do like the hint of the old Wagoneer bump on the hood. That said, the rendering looks way to much like a Grand Cherokee. The hints given on the style have been it won't been a full on retro but not a GC clone either. Just something recognizable as a Jeep yet identifiable as a Wagoneer.:cool:

    Do we have any clues as to what it may look like?

    I'd bet it is still far enough out that there is no set styling yet.

    There has to be something. Fca already has a clay model for the 2021 Charger or at least the theme direction

    Uhhh, no one uses clay anymore. There's these things called computers, you see... ;)

    This this has been talked about for how many years now. There better be a clay model or idea by now!

    Yup, no amount of sophisticated computer drawings can replicate the real life dimensions, feel, look, stance and practicality of a full scale clay model. Nothing can tweak the miniscule details and subtle design queues where needed like an artists hands.

    There may be drawings and clay models, but that does not mean the design is "locked-in" yet.
