Stretched Jeep for China?

by David Zatz on

An Allpar source wrote that Jeep is planning a three-row K8 for China and possibly elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific region. Based off the popular Cherokee, it would likely be made in the Chinese joint-venture plant, and capitalize on the popularity of the Cherokee.

The K8 would be due sometime next year as a 2018 model; it would most likely be launched with the imminent “Cherokee facelift” which will also appear on American models. It is unlikely to look like our clumsily stretched 2015 Cherokee, above.
