Jeep Wagoneer 4xe and Grand Wagoneer 4xe to Arrive in 2025


  • Jeep Wagoneer 4xe and Grand Wagoneer 4xe to get a range-extending powertrain.

  • These new variants would arrive during the 2025 calendar year.

  • The 4xe powertrain for the full-size SUVs was initially confirmed back in 2022.


During the global debut of the all-new, all-electric Jeep Wagoneer S crossover, Jeep CEO Antonio Filosa reiterated the brand’s intention of launching the Jeep Wagoneer 4xe and Grand Wagoneer 4xe plug-in hybrids in 2025.

The regular-length Wagoneer and extended-length Wagoneer L are currently available with the Hurricane twin-turbo 3.0L inline-six engine that develops 420 horsepower and 468 pound-feet of torque, while the Grand Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer L are equipped with the high-output variant belting out 510 horsepower and 500 pound-feet.

Filosa also mentioned that these full-size SUVs would get range-extending powertrains, it means they could possibly receive the 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger’s tech consisting of front and rear electric motors, a 3.6L V6 gasoline engine feeding a 130 kW on-board generator, and a 92 kWh battery pack. In the Ram, output is estimated at 663 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque.

Otherwise, the Jeep Wagoneer 4xe and Grand Wagoneer 4xe could inherit the powertrain found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe and Jeep Wrangler 4xe. It combines a turbocharged 2.0L I4 engine with a motor/generator, an eight-speed transmission integrating an electric traction motor and a 17.3 kWh battery pack. The outfit produces a total of 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. However, a four-cylinder engine in such a big and heavy luxury SUV would see out of place.

Meanwhile, the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition will start arriving in dealerships later this year. It’s equipped with dual electric motors that develop a combined 600 horsepower and 617 pound-feet of torque, helping the midsize crossover reach 60 mph from a standstill in 3.4 seconds. The Jeep Wagoneer S Trailhawk Concept was also presented, and although there are no plans to mass-produce it yet, the brand is listening to consumer response, and could easily change its mind. In fact, during the presentation, Chief Design Officer Ralph Gilles said they would really like to build it.

Also coming soon is the all-new Jeep Recon, another fully electric midsize crossover that’s a more rugged proposition than the Wagoneer S, followed by another midsize model. Filosa didn’t mention the name, but hinted that it would be called something familiar, which is likely the Jeep Cherokee.
