Which Rams and Jeeps will we see?

by David Zatz on

The last few days have brought numerous photos to the fore; but which will we see?

The big truck-based Wagoneer, so far as it’s based on the photos above, seems least likely, at least in that form. Looking at it after the two images were set to the same scale, you can see that the “new Jeep” is likely closely based on the Grand Cherokee, which is in line with past company statements.

Insiders have said that the Ram 1500 shown above is probably roughly what we will see in 2019, when production starts. The tailgate styling looks like a welcome change; while reactions to the grille have been positive, it will be interesting to see in person. It’s likely that there will be different front end treatments as people get LED or conventional headlights, Rebel, Limited, and Tradesman models, etc.

There really isn’t much they can do with the Wrangler’s basic appearance without alienating the Jeep world, but you can see in this image several traits Allpar insiders mentioned last year, including the “bent at the top” grille (used in the Cherokee too).  Sidelights have been in the fenders before, and the windshield tilt is fairly small; the current Wrangler already has an LED headlight option.

Chrysler SUV

The Chrysler SUV was seriously considered, we believe, but looking at the styling (echoed in the above rendering), it seems unlikely.  Chrysler has changed its design language, which shows that the images of a truck-based Chrysler are likely from a dated pitch. Yes, we could see it, but don’t put serious money down on the idea.

What’s coming next? We have to wonder. We just know this isn’t coming:
