Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept Video: Concept? More Like a Non-cept

A new three-row Jeep SUV bigger than the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been rumored and hinted at by Jeep brand for years — but finally we have our first look at what’s coming to showrooms next summer, due to arrive in mid-2021 in a couple of different versions. This is a concept car that Jeep is calling the Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept, but don’t be fooled: It’s more accurately described as a non-cept.

What you see in the video below is going to be extremely close to the SUV that arrives in Jeep showrooms. Just how close? We’re not quite sure, for while the styling and equipment is surely very close to the finished product, most of the unusual lighting treatment and more eye-popping interior features are just close enough to be possible as to make us wonder if they’ll make it to the production Grand Wagoneer, too.

Let’s start with the exterior styling. The most obvious unusual features are the windows that have been very clearly separated by some brightwork chrome trim — but only on three sides, leaving the top part integrated into the darker roof panel. It’s an unusual look, and we’re not entirely sure that it works, but there’s no denying that it’s something distinctive in a world of lookalike SUVs — and given how hard it is to make any two-box SUV design look different than others in the category, we’ll give it a tentative nod of approval for now, pending the final production model’s looks.

For further exterior impressions, as well as our first impressions of the cabin, interior materials and onboard tech features, be sure to watch the video below — and stay tuned for our full expert review once the all-new Jeep Grand Wagoneer goes from non-cept to nameplate.
