1963-1965

The first front-end design for the Wagoneer used two round headlights, two smaller openings with cover plates, and a grille design commonly termed the "Rhino Chaser" grille, a forward-slanting grille consisting of vertical slats that carried up into the bulge of the hood. This grille was a contemporary adaptation of the grille style used on the earlier Willys Wagon and Pickup, and the design cues of this grille have been incorporated into the 1999 Grand Cherokee, with its angled vertical chrome slats. The bumper was a 3-piece chrome unit, above which sat turn-signal bezels that would remain with the Wagoneer to the very end.
