    plans for the grand wagoneer seems to be an on-again, off-again affair, but if you want a three row Grand Cherokee NOW, you could look at its cousin, the Dodge Durango.

    I understand the simplistic logic of, "Hey, other car companies have fullsize 3-row SUVs, we should be in that market, too!" But didn't Jeep's flop with the Commander several years ago demonstrate the flaws in that thinking?

    Yes. If Jeep wants to expand it's lineup, there's is a logical direction. Look at the current lineup. I know each vehicle has it's nuances but most buyers get these things to move around people and stuff. Between the Compass, Patriot, Liberty (and Cherokee replacement), Wrangler and Grand Cherokee, they have 5 models that seat 5 passengers with base MSRP within about $10K of eachother. I know the Grand Cherokee can get much more expensive and the Compass can probably be purchased with the change in your pocket. But there's just not enough differentiation in the showroom to provide real options to average consumers. A 7 or 8 passenger vehicle with MSRP just north of $30K would start to stretch out the model range in a logical direction.
