The Jeep Wagoneer S Trailhawk Concept Has Been Revealed And Stellantis Really Wants To Build It


  • The Jeep Wagoneer S Trailhawk Concept is based on the production Wagoneer S, but imagined for off-road adventures.

  • Add-ons include a two-inch suspension lift, more aggressive styling and an exclusive Rock drive mode.

  • There are no plans to build the Trailhawk, but consumer demand might change that.


While the media gathered in New York City for the global debut of the fully electric 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S, the automaker had an unexpected surprise under one of the covers. The off-road-ready Jeep Wagoneer S Trailhawk Concept was introduced alongside the production-ready variant of the midsize luxury crossover.

While there are no concrete plans to send the Trailhawk Concept to production, it wouldn’t be a difficult project to materialize, if enough potential buyers express their desire to buy one and the company can make a business case out of it. “The Jeep Wagoneer S Trailhawk concept vehicle […] showcases what the all-electric Jeep Wagoneer S lineup is truly capable of, whether cornering tight turns with ease or traversing new ground off the beaten path,” stated Jeep brand CEO Antonio Filosa.

The Jeep Wagoneer S Trailhawk Concept features a reworked body, with more aggressive front and rear fascias featuring functional air extractors and Storm Gray metallic grille accents, a two-inch suspension lift, 18-inch multi-piece wheels wrapped in 31.5-inch off-road tires, red heavy-duty tow hooks, anti-scratch lower-body cladding, an aluminum roof rack, and a paint job called Bruce with an anti-glare black and red hood decal. The vehicle promises great approach, breakover and departure angles as well as deep water fording.

Inside, the concept receives a lifted center console to provide more storage space under it, while elastic straps mounted into the door storage bins help firmly hold objects in place while off-roading. There’s what the brand calls meteorite-inspired granite veneer, the drive mode selector and bezel are finished in anodized Radical Red, the steering wheel bears an octagonal shape with extra grip in the 9 and 3 o’clock positions, while the interior color scheme is called Mantis Green. The finishing touch is a passenger-side grab handle, similar to what’s found in the Jeep Wrangler, for example.

No word on the Jeep Wagoneer S Trailhawk Concept’s electric powertrain, but the production Wagoneer S Launch Edition gets a two-motor setup that develops 600 horsepower and 617 pound-feet of torque, creating a full-time all-wheel drivetrain in the process. The Trailhawk also features a Rock drive mode in its Selec-Terrain management system, which the regular Wagoneer S doesn’t have.

Interested? Tell Jeep, and the brand might send the concept into production if the demand warrants it. However, the upcoming Jeep Recon will debut in a few months with a fully electric powertrain, removable doors and a resolutely more rugged appearance than the Wagoneer S, which will be the brand’s off-road entry in the midsize utility vehicle segment.
