There has been announcement after announcement about auto makers’ five year plans recently. This time, it’s time for Jeep® to announce their plans. On May 6th Jeep CEO Sergio Machionne along with Michael Manley laid out what the next five years will look like for Jeep. Keep reading, and we’ll give you all the info.
First and foremost, Jeep announced that they plan on creating two new vehicles: a three-row SUV and a smaller vehicle that will fall size-wise just below the Jeep Cherokee. There are also two huge goals that Jeep has set for themselves, 1) to add 1,300 dealers over the next few years and 2) double the Jeep sales by 2018.
2016 celebrates the 75th year for the Jeep brand and will naturally be a very important year in the five year plan. A new C-segment SUV will be debuted in 2016 and three vehicles will receive a refresh – the Jeep Cherokee, the Jeep Patriot and the Jeep Compass. In 2017 the Jeep Renegade will make its first appearance and the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Grand Cherokee will get their turn for a reresh. In 2018, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer will arrive after much anticipation.
