Jeep Teases the Grand Wagoneer

August 20th, 2020 by

Jeep has continuously ramped up its teasing of the hotly-anticipated Grand Wagoneer model. Initially posting across its social media channels with a photo of the Grand Canyon and the word “Grand” in center focus, Jeep has now moved onto revealing actual bits of what experts assume is the Grand Wagoneer. The latest photos indicate the Grand Wagoneer is all about the details. In the first photo (pictured above), we get a glimpse of the vehicle’s new badge on a white Grand Wagoneer, with an American flag at the end. The font Jeep chose is riddled with nostalgia as it looks almost throwback in a sense. The letters even don a gold finish, something we don’t typically see vehicle manufacturers indulge in these days. 

The interior image Jeep teased focuses on the engine start-stop button, but in the background we can see some wood trim and the infotainment touchscreen display that appears to have two knobs on either side. Clearly that’s an indication that the upcoming Uconnect 5 infotainment system will allow for numerous users to control individual profiles and more. The Wagoneer, according to automotive experts familiar with the matter,will be offered in two versions — the standard model and the above-mentioned Grand Wagoneer. The upcoming Jeep full-size SUV offering will compete directly with the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban. 

Experts have been speculating and disagreeing in the lead-up to the model’s debut, with some saying the Grand Wagoneer will borrow the Ram 1500’s body-on-frame platform, while others believe the model will borrow the Alfa Romeo Stelvio platform instead. We won’t know until Jeep makes the big reveal, but both of those models indicate a significantly longer platform than any other existing Jeep offering. Engine options are likely the classic Pentastar V6 as the standard, while hybrid and plug-in options are sure to be a part of the model’s future. Some experts think a hefty V8 would also do well under the hood of a Grand Wagoneer and suspect the brand will deliver a V8-powered Wagoneer option to its loyal Jeepers. As for the big reveal, Jeep has been coy about timing, only indicating the model is “coming soon.” Expect to see the Grand Wagoneer within the next few months as production is slated to kick off next year. 

Once the models debut, plenty of Jeepers and amateurs alike will surely be swayed to take the leap and get behind the wheel of a Grand Wagoneer, but in the meantime, the Jeep lineup already has plenty to offer buyers.  With models that range from total off-road champs, such as the all-new Jeep Gladiator, to top-tier SUVs such as the Grand Cherokee, Jeep truly has numerous vehicles that suit different needs.
