Look for Jeep lineup to expand...

In the next two years, Jeep plans to introduce a seven-seat luxury SUV known as the Commander that will share an underbody with the Jeep Grand Cherokee; a four-door version of the classic Wrangler open-top; and an entry-level SUV based on the Compass concept unveiled at the Detroit auto show in 2002.

“Next year, we’ll start the expansion to the lineup,” said Dieter Zetsche, CEO of the Chrysler Group, which includes the Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge brands.

He said the Commander will debut at the 2005 New York International Auto Show in March and hit the market next summer. It will be built at Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit.

The four-door Wrangler-like model is expected to begin production in 2006, at Chrysler’s Toledo South Assembly Plant in Ohio, which will undergo a $900 million renovation starting this fall. A totally redesigned version of the Wrangler will also be made there

I'm waiting to see the new wrangler personally, and see what the commander really is. I doubt that they are going to just ditch all of their offroading heritage, adding to the lineup is a good idea to regain market share of what they once had. Besides all Jeeps are way better off road than anything else. I mean look at Land Rover, yea they cost alot, but still do really well.

I hope they retain SFA on at least some models. IFS sucks.

Looks like shit to me, and let's hope the Daimler engineers don't fuck up the new wrangler.
