He FCA Group He’s been very active lately, at least in the United States. After the presentation of the Jeep Wrangler 392 Concept and the crazy RAM 1500 TRX with 712 CV as the most powerful pick-up in history, now we have anticipated the arrival of a new model, but more conventional.
It is about one of the worst kept secrets in the American house: the return of the Jeep Wagoneer. Now possibly reinterpreted as a large luxury SUV, the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will arrive to compete with the seven-seater high-end SUVs on the American market.
The return of one of the first SUVs on the market
For weeks Jeep has been dropping quite clear hints, but now they have let us see the first images of the Jeep Wagoneer with which to get an idea of what they are going to face on the other side of the pond, because we may not see it in Europe.
There are just some details that the brand has shown on its social networks: the rear badge with its name, a rotary control inside and the start button. Perhaps the most representative of all is the image in which it is seen part of the front grill.
In all the photos we can see metallic and shiny elements, but the front of the Grand Wagoneer will be striking at best. Aside from boasting the signature seven-kidney grille, the front of the Grand Wagoneer will apparently debut a LED backlight system. Yes, in the style of the BMW X6.
The Jeep Wagoneer was one of the most popular models of the brand, produced between 1963 and 1991 under the concept of a practical all-rounder. It was not a high capacity 4×4 offroad, but something closer to an SUV concept with very good accessibility and plenty of space for the occupants.
Everything indicates that the presentation of the new Jeep Wagoneer will be the next September 3 and that the difference between the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer will be in reference to the equipment and finishes of one and the other, with the Grand Wagoneer as the most luxurious model with the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator in the spotlight. In both cases they will be large seven-seater SUVs with three rows of seats.
At the moment we do not know anything about the interior equipment or the engines of this new model, but it could include a plug-in hybrid variant and a high-performance version with the 6.2 V8 HEMI engine of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat They are installing in almost any car in the group that fits them.
