FCA’s plans include a long-wheelbase version.
Expect a supercharged Hellcat under the hood.
PHEV and off-road iterations are all very possible too.
First thing’s first, Jeep will not offer a faux-woodgrain decal on its Grand Wagoneer, at least not at first, as confirmed by Ralph Gilles. However unfortunate that may be, there potentially will be a plethora of options for Jeep’s big and luxurious SUV.
The internet was quick to suggest that the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer would potentially be priced from $60,000 to $100,000. Now, there are reports floating about suggesting that a long-wheelbase (Grand) Grand Wagoneer could be in the works before long, aimed squarely at the Cadillac Escalade ESL and Ford Expedition Max and Lincoln Navigator L.
The powertrain possibilities for these SUVs is vast, according to carbuzz.com, and could include anything from PHEV (as the concept model revealed last week) all the way to a Hellcat-powered variant. All of this is in large part possible thanks to the fact that the Wagoneers are built on the Ram 1500’s chassis, meaning eTorque with V6 or V8 and a supercharged V8 are all in the cards.
As far as trims are concerned, the sky’s the limit here too. Trailhawk, Mojave, Limited, and even Trackhawk could adorn the trucks. The last one might work on a Wagoneer however would be a stretch for a Grand Wagoneer. Might we recommend “SJ” or perhaps a spinoff of “gold standard?”
