FCA prepares comeback of another legendary nameplate, actually two of them, to be more precise. The company is about to introduce a new 2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models. This legendary model was in production for almost three decades. The model was replaced with the all-new Grand Cherokee more than 25 years ago. In these days, the company wants to complete its SUV offer. For that occasion, it needs one mini crossover and one full-size SUV. Naturally, new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will be the latter one. We will see two versions of the new truck, with each of two nameplates. It will come heavily based on Grand Cherokee, though with several unique details. Latest reports suggest it should come in about two years.
2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Design
Speaking of 2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer design characteristics, these will be full-size SUVs. As we’ve already mentioned, the new model should have a lot in common with Grand Cherokee. Considering this, a unibody platform seems certain. However, latest reports suggest that the new full-size SUV will borrow the architecture from the new Ram truck. This sounds much better, considering its rugged body-on-frame construction.
In terms of styling, we expect two models to adopt the brand’s latest design language, as well as to come with some new design solutions. Basically, we should see the same shape as on Grand Cherokee, just in a little bigger package. We should also see familiar headlights and grille, though with a few tweaks that will make it more attractive-looking. Somethings that will find its place on other future Jeep models as well.
What will be the difference between Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer?
There is no doubt that the two models will be closely related. Compared to standard Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer will feature a little bit longer wheelbase, which will provide additional comfort and cargo space. Basically, that will be the kind of relation that we can see between Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, or between Ford Expedition and Expedition XL.
2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Interior
Numerous novelties are expected inside these two new models. The 2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer interior design won’t be much different. Both models will feature the same cabin layout, with size as the only difference. On the other side, the list of standard and optional features should be quite similar. We should see the same trim level organization, which will probably include some hi-performance version as well. Of course, expect to see plenty of tech features, including FCA’s latest suite of safety systems.
2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Engines
Two models should come with a bunch of engines in the offer. Most likely, base models will feature a familiar 3.6-liter V6, with around 300 horsepower. However, V8 units seem like a much better choice for such large SUVs. So, a familiar 5.7-liter should be offered across the whole range. This unit delivers around 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Finally, there is a large 6.4-liter unit. Most likely, this one will be reserved for higher trims. It should be reserved for performance versions like SRT, with a max output of 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. An ultra-high-performance Trackhawk version with more than 700 horses. All models should come with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Release Date
The 2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer release dates are still to be announced. Still, the latest reports suggest that two model could hit the market in about two years, probably in the first half of 2020.
How much will 2020 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer cost?
The base 2020 Jeep Wagoneer will go somewhere between 45.000 and 50.dollars in its base variant. On the other side, Grand Wagoneer should add few thousands more.
