Jeep Working on an Extended Version of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer

Already huge and barely a few months old, longer versions of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are on the way

  • Big and bigger SUVs are huge in every way.

  • The XL premium SUV segment has plenty of offerings from Ford and GM.

  • The extended Wagoneers should arrive quickly.

This is what they call “striking while the iron is hot.” The oversized full-size SUV segment is a cash cow for automakers and Stellantis has decided to get involved. Launched less than a year ago, the Wagoneer brand will gain extended versions of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer soon enough.

2022 Grand Wagoneer First Drive Review: Massively Good Entry in the Massively Lucrative Full-Size Luxury SUV Segment

We’ve reviewed the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer and we like them. Although we’d not have thought that a longer version was necessary, Stellantis knows that there’s demand for one and it’s coming.

Doug Moreland, owner of numerous Stellantis stores told Automotive News: “Out here, there are a lot of Suburbans, Denali XLs. People drive them because they love that extra room in the back. They haul stuff up in the mountains: skis, camping gear.”

Between Ford and GM, there are the Cadillac Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon XL, Ford Expedition Max, and Lincoln Navigator L. And there’s room for more. The time for Stellantis to act is now given the evolving global automotive climate and the eventual demise of the internal combustion engine.

There’s no doubt the main motivation behind selling these giant SUVs is making more money.

Sam Fiorani, vice president of vehicle forecasting at AutoForecast Solutions, said in an email: “By moving the product lineup further up the price scale, Stellantis has the opportunity to make even more money. With so many components shared with existing models, the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer bring with them the chance for enormous return on investment.”
