Jeep Introduces an All-New Grand Wagoneer Concept
Jeep keeps making the news lately, whether it’s for the automaker’s introduction of its first plug-in hybrid Jeep Wrangler 4xe model, or the latest debut of the brand’s Grand Wagoneer Concept. Introduced in Detroit, an ode to Jeep’s long history with the city, the Grand Wagoneer Concept marks the rebirth of a quintessential American icon after a 30-year absence. Serving as Jeep’s flagship vehicle, the Grand Wagoneer Concept sets forth what the brand’s vision is for its future, combining moren expression and design with the ultimate nod to the automaker’s past — it’s what original and premium vehicles can be. Set to deliver a unique experience for customers, the Grand Wagoneer will redefine “American Premium” as the brand expands into new segments.
“Our new Grand Wagoneer Concept marks the first step in the rebirth of Wagoneer — a true and rare premium American icon. With the electrification of each Jeep nameplate coming in the next few years, and the reintroduction of Wagoneer, we are quickly expanding into new segments and more premium space,” stated Christian Meunier, global president of the Jeep brand.
The Grand Wagoneer Concept has plenty of leading-edge premium technology, the same way it made strides when it arrived in 1963 as it was then the first four-wheel-drive vehicle to be mated to an automatic transmission. Once upon a time a pioneer of SUVs, the Grand Wagoneer Concept aims to recreate that magic with an electrified powertrain, upscale cabin features, a first-ever passenger touchscreen display, several sophisticated 4×4 off-road systems, and much more. The fact that there’ll be an electrified powertrain from the get-go demonstrates Jeep’s commitment to becoming a greener off-road brand.
“Wagoneer is unquestionably rooted in the legendary Jeep brand and its unmatched heritage of leading capability, authenticity and freedom, and its return allows us to expand to a much more premium arena with new levels of design detail, and advanced safety and technology features. While Jeep vehicles bring leading capability, efficiency and performance across the mainstream SUV market, Wagoneer will ultimately become a portfolio of vehicles that will once again define ‘American Premium,’ making it the standard of sophistication, authenticity and modern mobility,” added Meunier.
This is the first time in the nameplate’s history that the Wagoneer has a spacious third row. Production versions of both the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models are scheduled to be showrooms by the end of 2021. The Wagoneer nameplate will be exclusively built and assembled near downtown Detroit. As an added bonus, the Grand Wagoneer Concept unveiled featured a map showcasing Detroit and the surrounding area on its full-plane glass roof. By the time the production variant of this SUV arrives in 2021, it’ll boast premium driving dynamics, advanced technology, the latest safety features, powerful performance both on and off the road, unmatched towing capability, and much more — all wrapped in a stunning, sophisticated, and innovative design.
