“Above the Grand Cherokee there is an opportunity, especially in the US, China and the Middle East,” said Manley. “That’s where we’ll go next and the natural name is Grand Wagoneer.”
Manley said the model was unlikely to come to Europe as it would be too big for tastes here.
Beyond the Grand Wagoneer, Manley said he didn’t see there being many other SUV segments left to discover, other than a model smaller than the new supermini-sized Renegade the firm launched at the show.
“There might be the emergence of a small A-segment SUV,” he said. “But it’s not for Jeep at the moment. There’ll be those who will be pushing down there, but before we do it, we’d need to know we can be capable off-road.
