With only two days before the unveiling of the all-new 2022 Jeep® Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer (WS) models, several of our readers have sent us a link to copies of the patent drawings for what appears to be the all-new SUV duo.
We received dozens of e-mails over the last two days, telling us that several readers have been able to find the patent drawings on IP Australia. Upon a closer look at the documents, it appears that this not the production model but instead is the Grand Wagoneer Concept that was shown last year.
This biggest clue telling us that these images are of the Grand Wagoneer Concept is because of the front fascia design. When you look closely at the grille design, you will notice it features the concept’s more angular outboard seven-slot grille openings. For the production model, those slots will be more squared off going with the design theme of the recently introduced 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Those who have a keen eye will also see that vertical slats in the grille design, which have proven to be absent from the recent teaser shots.
It is possible that Jeep will have a grille inlay that will match the concept, however, our staff looked at the grille pattern of the production Grand Wagoneer in-depth. We believe that the teaser image is that of the Grand Wagoneer Summit Reserve, as it matches the grille texture of the Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve.
Looking at the roof of the patent drawings we also see the full-pane glass roof featured on the concept vehicle as shown above. The production model should feature a Command-View dual-pane sunroof with a power sunshade. We have seen peeks of the production unit in recent spy photos like the ones below.
Nevertheless, the concept vehicle and production model do share most of its exterior design. We can’t wait to see the final product on Thursday. For those who can, don’t forget you can watch the Livestream event right here on MoparInsiders.com at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on March 11th.
