Concept Jeep Yuntu previews China-only next Big Jeep


With the long rumoured Grand Wagoneer still on-hold, Jeep has unveiled a six-seat concept at the Shanghai Motor Show unlikely to be sold as the replacement for the erstwhile Commander in its home country.

Slated to go into production next year as a Chinese market model only, the Yuntu retains the same boxy-looking exterior as the Grand Cherokee, but with slim LED headlamps, blacked-out A-pillar, suicide doors, 10-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels with gold X-shaped centre, red brake callipers, thin LED taillights and flush door handles.

Inside, the concept gets a more elegant yet futuristic interior with lashings of leather and light wood, an expansive digital dashboard with three display screens, first and second row captain's chairs, entertainment screens in the second and third row bring the total to eleven, and a panoramic roof.

Technical specs have not been revealed with parent company Fiat-Chrysler merely stating that the Yuntu employs a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. In addition, expect the interior to be significantly toned-down once production commences.
