The Jeep Grand Wagoneer is Here. Sort of

Grand Wagoneer most high-tech Jeep concept ever

  • Classic luxury 4×4 is back

  • Up to seven screens inside, no wood outside

The Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept has finally been revealed. That means a nose that does an impressive job of paying tribute to the original, but a model that’s loaded with tech including up to seven interior screens. The original luxury off-roader is back, but no, there’s not going to be any woodgrain on the outside this time.

Starting with that iconic Jeep seven-slot grille that’s filled with finer chrome slots, just like the very early Wagoneer models. Before they went to sideways slats. The headlights aren’t exactly classic Jeep, but it’s hard to put sealed beams on a modern aerodynamic front. The rest is solidly upright, lacking much of the character of the original, but still handsome, rugged, and premium enough in appearance to compete in the price point where we’re expecting it to play.

Light-up badges look great on the concept, especially on the tailgate lettering, and that’s again something we hope makes the transition from concept to production car.

Real wood, recyclable suede, and what Jeep calls the most environmentally friendly carpet fibre available coat the cabin, along with raw aluminum. Of course, this is still a concept, so we’re not sure what will make production. The concept is also fitted with a McIntosh audio system, the only such system in any vehicle, offering 23 speakers and 24-channels of amplification.

45-inches of screen are placed across the dashboard, with a 12.3-inch digital dash, 12.1-inch main display, and 10.25-inch screen just for the passenger that lets them swipe, say, navigation directions to the driver and main screen. Or just watch TV in their Wagoneer. Another 10.25-inch screen separated from the main one by the structural aluminum wing controls the climate and seats.

Even rear-seat passengers have three 10.1-inch screens, with the whole system powered by FCA’s Uconnect 5. Five times faster than before and able to support all of these displays.

The Grand Wagoneer concept boasts a PHEV powertrain, with the charge level shown on a display on the fender. Jeep says it’s planning to electrify more vehicles to offer a more eco-friendly off-road option. Three 4×4 systems will be offered, as will be an air suspension, independent front and rear, and towing up to 10,000 lbs.

The production version of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be built starting next year, and while Jeep hasn’t set pricing, this one looks like it could hit six figures.
