The Jeep Grand Commander, the company’s upcoming seven-seater SUV, has been revealed in leaked photos. The new three-row SUV will be introduced in China first, based on the Compass. For the Indian market, the automaker has also planned a 7-seater SUV. The SUV, codenamed Jeep H6, is expected to enter the streets by the middle of 2022. The RHD (right-hand drive) variant of the Jeep Commander will be manufactured at FCA India’s Ranjangaon facility near Pune. There is currently no word on whether the forthcoming Jeep 7-seater SUV will be named the Grand Commander or not.
The Jeep Grand Commander 7-seater SUV will share the majority of its design elements with the 5-seat Compass, according to the leaked photos. It does have new headlamps, a more upright 7-slat grille, wider doors, a lowered roofline, an extended overhang, and a sharply styled rear bumper and tailgate, though. The new Jeep 7-seater SUV’s rear section resembles the Grand Wagoneer concept. The front grille, fog lights, bumpers, alloy wheels, rims, and other features will be available in a variety of designs.
The Jeep Commander SUV’s total length, width, and height will be 4895mm, 1896mm, and 1754mm, respectively. The interior will be similar to the Compass 5-seater SUV, as will the exterior style. The Grand Commander, on the other hand, would have a third row of seats. According to reports, it may also be available in a 6-seat configuration with captain seats in the middle row.
The new Jeep 7-seater SUV is expected to come with a wide touchscreen infotainment system with wireless mobile access and Amazon Alexa support, a digital instrument console, connected car technology, multi-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats, traction control, and other features.
In China, the forthcoming Jeep Grand Commander will be available with both an internal combustion engine and a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The 2.0L, 4-cylinder Multijet diesel engine from the 5-seater Compass will power the India-spec version. The engine, however, could be tuned to produce close to 200bhp. It’ll most likely come with both a 6-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic transmission. The 4X4 drivetrain will be available as an option.
