The Grand Wagoneer will return in 2018.

Yesterday Fiat Chrysler Automobiles held its Investor Day in which details for the automaker's plans over the next five years were revealed. Jeep is currently the shinning star under the Fiat/Chrysler umbrella and the automaker hopes to triple its sales by 2018, not only by introducing new models, but also by introducing the Jeep brand in other markets outside of the U.S.

By 2018 Jeep hopes to increase its sales volume to 1.9 million units annually. Photos and specs of the next Jeep models were not revealed, but Jeep did reveal the dates that we can expect replacements to arrive for models like the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. The first new Jeep, the 2015 Renegade arrives later this year and competes primarily with models like the Nissan Juke and Kia Soul. By late 2015 we can expect a refreshed Grand Cherokee to arrive.

Starting in 2016 Jeep is slated to introduce a single replacement for the Compass/ Patriot models and by the summer a refreshed Cherokee will be released. We'll have to wait until 2017 for the all-new Wrangler and later that year a refreshed Renegade will be released and an all-new Grand Cherokee.

For year it's been rumored that Jeep is going to revive the Grand Wagoneer and now it's been confirmed, but we'll have to wait until 2018. The Grand Wagoneer will be a three-row SUV that will sit above the Grand Cherokee in the Jeep lineup and may even replace the Dodge Durango, since Dodge is being repositioned as a performance oriented brand.
