The Jeep Wrangler is the type of vehicle that quickly gathers a cult-like following. Over the years, many carmakers introduced various vehicles set to rival the Wrangler’s popularity—all without success. Now, GMC might be considering the creation of a Jeep Wrangler rival that is sure to topple the rugged SUV.
In a recent interview with Edmunds.com, Buick-GMC vice president Duncan Aldred said that, while there is currently no plans put in place to expand GMC’s lineup, the American carmaker is definitely brainstorming the various segments they could contribute to, stating, “There is room throughout the range if you really start segmenting it. There is plenty of room everywhere in the hierarchy.”
The areas GMC is considering in particular include the aforementioned Jeep Wrangler rival, along with a flagship luxury SUV that would be positioned just above the current Yukon Denali. There is currently no other information available as to what GMC has on its current drawing board, but we here at Watters Autoland have to say—we sure can’t wait to see what this American carmaker has up its sleeve.
