Chrysler brand CEO Al Gardner has revealed the company is developing a seven-seat crossover to battle the Buick Enclave / Chevrolet Traverse / GMC Acadia.

Speaking to Motor Trend, Gardner said the model would be larger than the Dodge Durango and feature less aggressive styling. The executive declined to go into specifics but he hinted the model will ride on a front-wheel drive platform and feature a V6 engine.  There's no word on which platform will be used but the architecture from the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is the most likely candidate.

Little else is known about the model but Chrysler's five-year plan revealed the full-size crossover will be launched in 2017. The plan also called for a plug-in hybrid variant but there's no word on specifications.
