There are 3 significant automobile patterns in China today: premium, green, and energy. The Yuntu integrates all 3, producing exactly what might be Jeep’s brand-new halo car because market.
The Yuntu likewise might hint a few of exactly what’s in shop for the upcoming Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, Jeep’s other three-row SUVs presently in advancement. As a hybrid, it will assist start to fill a huge hole for Fiat Chrysler; FCA does not use numerous green lorries, and Jeep has never ever had a hybrid in its lineup.

As a Jeep, 4×4 ability is a must, however this lorry will be targeted at luxury-minded city occupants and might provide two-wheel drive also. Based upon the spy images, we can see that it includes an independent rear suspension. While the Yuntu concept included suicide doors, several individual infotainment screens on every seatback, and an adjustable interior that enabled in person seating, it’s uncertain any of those functions will make it to production.
The exterior styling of the production Yuntu looks near to the concept, however, with a more high end mix of Cherokee and Compass hints. Noticeable are a small greenhouse, an upward-curving high beltline, slim LED lights, and exactly what seems a chunky D-pillar.

When the Yuntu made its launching, Jeep declared that it might operate on pure electrical power for a brief time, and a rational presumption is that the Jeep will obtain the plug-in hybrid system from the Chrysler Pacifica.
The Pacifica utilizes a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 in tandem with 2 electrical motor/generators; power storage is dealt with by a 16.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. In our screening of the Pacifica hybrid, it showed efficient in taking a trip about 30 miles entirely on electrical energy.
