Jeep will release another three-row crossover

FineAuto

In recent years, Jeep has been actively developing a line of models with three rows of seats. The China-specific Grand Commander was followed by the global Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, the Grand Cherokee L. The Brazilian Commander debuted last summer, and now its Indian counterpart is on its way under its own Meridian name.

This name is a reference to the 77th meridian of east longitude, which runs from the North Pole to the South through the Arctic Ocean,, Kazakhstan, India, the Indian and Southern Oceans. We chose a name from as many as 70 options.

Judging by the first published image of the camouflaged prototype, the Indian Meridian will differ from the South American Commander, mainly in decor. Local media claims it will get a 2.0-litre, 200-horsepower turbodiesel, mated to a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive system. In addition, there is talk of a moderate hybrid power plant. The salon will be offered in both seven and six-seater versions. The top versions will receive front row ventilation, a 10.25-inch digital instrument panel, a 10.1-inch multimedia touchscreen, wireless charging for smartphones, and a panoramic sunroof.

The production of the Jeep Meridian will be launched in Pune, India, next to the Wrangler and Compass. Sales should start in the middle of this year.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
