Fans of the legendary SUV are eager to see its revival in the form of 2019 Jeep Wagoneer. According to the latest reports, FCA will finally offer a competitor in the segment of full-size SUVs. The legendary SUV was in production for full three decades. However, it was replaced by the Grand Cherokee in the early 90s. Since then, fans of this SUV are speculating about a possible comeback.
Latest reports suggest that the revival could finally happen next year. So far, we are relying on rumors, but several reliable sources claim 2019 Wagoneer as a certain thing. Moreover, it seems that we are about to see the Grand Wagoneer as well, as a long-wheelbase version of the same SUV.
2019 Jeep Wagoneer Design
After more than 25 years, the famous SUV will come back. When it comes to base 2019 Jeep Wagoneer specs, it looks like we are about to see a real body-on-frame SUV this time. Some earlier reports have been suggesting a crossover, closely related to the Grand Cherokee. However, it now seems that the new SUV will borrow the architecture from the recently redesigned Ram 1500.
This truck has always been characterized by a platform with a lot of potentials and it is a real wonder that we haven’t seen an SUV that rides on it before. So, we could expect excellent capabilities from the new 2019 Jeep Wagoneer. It will be a highly-capable machine, which will combine excellent performances with a high level of comfort.
How will the new Jeep Wagoneer look like?
In terms of styling, it is still early to speculate about some more specific details. However, we are pretty sure that the new 2019 Jeep Wagoneer will stick to the company’s current design language, featuring familiar headlights and grille design. Basically, the new model should feature a similar shape to the Grand Cherokee, just a little bit more rugged and with bigger dimensions. Of course, numerous distinctive details are expected too, which seems logical considering that this is about to be a flagship model.
The 2019 Jeep Wagoneer interior is still a big mystery. So far, we can only tell that the new model will feature three rows of seating in a base version for sure. Other than that, we can make some predictions only. Some reports suggest a lot of things in common with the new Ram 1500. This especially refers to the dashboard layout, which should feature pretty much the same design. Of course, we will see some of the Jeep’s signature design solutions, but the overall cabin design will probably be much closer to the famous truck than to the Grand Cherokee, for example.
Are we going to see Grand Wagoneer too?
Most likely yes. The Grand Wagoneer should be a long-wheelbase version. Stretched dimensions will provide more interior and cargo space. Other than longer wheelbase, these two models should be pretty much the same. Basically, it will be the same relation as we can seem between Chevy Tahoe and Suburban models.
2019 Jeep Wagoneer Engines
We expect to see a wide palette of engines in the offer for the 2019 Jeep Wagoneer. Most likely, base models will feature a familiar 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 unit. This engine is good for about 310 horsepower or something like that.
Still, most drivers would probably prefer a V8 engine. Expect two of these in the offer. The first one is a 5.7-liter Hemi unit, which has a max output of 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque.
The other one is a 6.4-liter Hemi engine, which is good for about 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. All models should use the same 8-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Jeep Wagoneer Release Date and Price
According to some reports, the new model could come already in the next year. When it comes to 2019 Jeep Wagoneer price, base models will probably cost somewhere between 45.000 and 50.000 dollars.
