Maserati Jeep: another rendering

by David Zatz on

Graphic artist suzq044 provided an alternative rendering, based on the Dodge Durango body, which may presage the upcoming Maserati version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

This version uses the curves common in Italian styling, with reduced under-hood space since one would not need to fit a 392 Hemi if the Maserati used the 4.7 liter Ferrari V8. As a general design study, it doesn’t yet have European-regulation pedestrian-impact controls or street-legal sidelights.

Months ago, JackRatchett provided a rendering showing a shortened version of the Grand Cherokee, with a heavily modified body and room for the 392 Hemi under the hood. This version also makes use of rounded forms, and assumes a much more highly modified profile. Numerous mainstream media outlets and a chain of Canadian newspapers used his rendering in articles on the upcoming vehicle, without permission and, in some cases, without attribution.
