After a long absence, Jeep has revived the Grand Wagoneer with the reveal of a concept model in Detroit.
While still identified as a concept, Jeep has confirmed the Grand Wagoneer will enter production in the US next year.
Built on the same platform as the Ram 1500 ute and sitting above the Grand Cherokee, Jeep says the Grand Wagoneer will pack premium technology, sophisticated 4x4 off-road systems, and a first-ever passenger screen in an SUV.
Jeep plans on using the Wagoneer to attract a “more affluent array of customers” to the brand.
Style-wise, the boxy shape synonymous with large American SUVs, if not overly attractive, will ensure those in the third-row are comfortable.
There’s plenty of unnecessary chrome, new LED headlights, a bespoke lighting signature and the brand’s iconic seven slot grille.
Depending on the grade, air suspension, 24-inch wheels, a full-pane glass roof and Teak wood accents are available.
Moving to the cabin, Jeep proclaims the Wagoneer “represents the pinnacle of ultra-premium full-size SUV interiors with a modern American style, meticulously crafted details and elegant appointments that inspire upscale, premium travel.”
The interior can accommodate up to seven occupants with captain’s chairs available in all three rows.
Up front, there are nearly 45 inches of total screen span consisting of a 12.3-inch driver information display behind the steering wheel, a 12.1-inch horizontal touchscreen, a 10.25-inch horizontal comfort display below the main screen, and a 10.25-inch passenger screen. Yes, that’s a lot of screen.
The screen addiction continues in the second-row with a 10.25-inch central touchscreen and a pair of 10.1-inch screens.
Driving the screens is FCA’s all-new Uconnect 5 infotainment system which uses Android’s operating system as its foundation.
While the concept is a plug-in hybrid, at this stage, Jeep hasn’t announced any powertrain specifics, however, the brand did confirm an electrified version will enter production.
The Grand Wagoneer is scheduled to go into production in the first quarter of 2021, Jeep’s Australian arm is yet to confirm local availability.
