    I haven't heard anything for awhile anybody heard?
    I would be perfectly fine with a Jeep Wagoneer based off the Grand Cherokee scratched Durango platform. Let's face it Mercedes did a great job with that platform where would Jeep Chrysler Dodge be had they not used? With some updates it will last awhile. And for that matter thank you for the E-class parts platform...Dodge Charger Dodge Magnum Dodge Challenger Chrysler 300 Maserati you have to admit it's been MONEY.

    You need to read the News and Rumors more often...

    2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Wagoneer will start production next fall at the Warren Truck plant in Warren, Michigan after the plant gets an update when it is done producing the current generation Ram 1500 (DS platform) pickups. The Wagoneer will be based on the Ram 1500 platform, so it will be a true full-size SUV, not based off of the midsize Dodge Durango. Grand Wagoneer will be a top of the range version of the Wagoneer lineup both are platform codenamed WS. WS will be Trail Rated and gets a lot of the Ram 1500 goodies, like the 4 corner air suspension for improved ground clearance. Three engines will power the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, including the 3.0L ECODIESEL and 6.4L HEMI.

    They will feature the new UConnect 360 camera, foot activated tailgate, and should be one of the first vehicles to introduce the new UConnect heads up display, which should be in full-color. Captain chairs will be standard on the Grand Wagoneer, with heated and cooled middle seats. Wagoneer will have those seats optional, but will have a standard middle bench. Power rear folding seats and middle seats from the hatch will be standard. A behind the front row infotainment system with application, just like what the Pacifica has will be optional as well.

    We should be able to see this truck, finally make its first public appearance in pre-production form, this next year on the auto show circuit. More than likely in New York in April.

    Here is an official statement from FCA US...

    "FCA US confirmed on Jan. 8, 2016, that it would invest a total $1 billion to retool and modernize Warren Truck to produce the all-new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer and the south plant of the Toledo Assembly Complex (Ohio) to build an all-new Jeep pickup truck. These actions are planned to be completed by 2020. More than 2,000 jobs will be added to support production of these models. With the investment, Warren Truck will have the flexibility to also produce the Ram heavy duty truck."

    Those patient drawings are K8 but overall styling will be similar.
