New Wagoneer?

My wife and I are expecting our second daughter here at the end of this month. Her Grand Cherokee isn't near big enough with two car seats so we have been in search of a 7/8 passenger SUV. We had been hoping the new Grand Wagoneer would actually be released now that the rumors have been out for several years.

We were loyal Jeep people but thanks to them for dragging their feet on this yet again we had to look elsewhere for a vehicle. We looked at the new Yukon Denali XLs, extended Escalades, and the Durangos but the GM products are 12 weeks out to order; and they are going through a transmission change from 6 to 8 speed automatics which sounded like a mess of recalls and other issues to me with the first production run.

We ended up going with an 8-passenger Infiniti and we couldn't be happier. Just got it last week, wife loves it and I love the 400 hp, win/win! All I can say to Jeep is they need to pay homage to the past GW's with the design that made the name famous and get something done with it. A part of me does agree with JerseyJeep though, I doubt fiat will get it right. The new non-Jeep family truckster:

You can bet this new GW is going to be some serious coin. I'd prefer to buy raw land or a home to turn into a rental property if I'm going to fork out 60-70k. That's the niche the Jeep execs said they wanted to play (and where the original GW was-premium). I also am one who really likes the GC, but the rest of the Jeep SUV fleet is horrific, to the point I want to projectile vomit!!

That is based on a JK which is too small for a Wagoneer. The new Waggy is going to compete with the GMC Yukon Denali and Cadillac Escalade.

People who buy burbs, yukons, and escalade, will always buy the following. As much as Id like tone be optimistic, but Chrysler can't do anything right with jeeps, that prototype, needs to be boxer, and have wood down the side., oh wait I just describe the '70s. I could live without the wood, but it definitely needs to retain the boxy body style of the '60s 70s, and '80s.
