Rendering the Grand Cherokee

by David Zatz on

DarkSky envisioned a somewhat Range Rover-influenced 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, keeping roughly the same body shape but altering the front. This design makes the front end both more conventional and more aggressive, while separating it from the Cherokee and Compass alike.

This goes along, somewhat, with the photos recently seen on a Jeep display, assumed by many to be a Wagoneer. Once the size is corrected for, as suzq044 did, it’s remarkably similar in front end placement.

The photo above is an exploration of the design from the Jeep display, going for a fairly conventional look; It keeps the shorter grille and some of the Land Rover influence.

JGC or Wagoneer

The image above was created along the lines of a Grand Cherokee-based Wagoneer, particularly in the body itself. It too replaces the obvious LED headlights with traditional ones. The grille shape in both drops the mid-grille bend, which we suspect will soon be universal Jeep styling cue to differentiate the brand from Mahindra, Land Rover, and any possible Hummer resurrection.
