Wagoneer, Cherokee, and scaling

by David Zatz on

Yesterday, many were stunned to see what appeared to be a huge new Jeep standing next to a Grand Cherokee. Since it was a photo of a photo, though, it seemed likely that the new SUV was at a different scale, and could well be the same size as a Grand Cherokee.

jeep wagoneer or grand cherokee?

Allpar’s suzq044 decided to find out for herself, and scaled the two vehicles so they would have the same size outside mirrors. The result, shown above, is what appears to be a roughly Grand Cherokee-sized vehicle.

That adds to the ambiguity — is this a Wagoneer, based on the Grand Cherokee (and looking oddly Hummer-ish, with its wider grille spacing and more squarish style), or the next generation Grand Cherokee? Could it even be a styling study for the current Grand Cherokee SRT, which just got a facelift? Could it be the un-mentioned third possibility?
