2019 Jeep Wagoneer Will Challenge Luxury SUVs

By

Willys-Overland first introduced the Jeep Wagoneer all the back in 1962, it predated what we now call an SUV by decades, not just a few years.

The Wagoneer was in production for 29 years in total, proving to be a popular model and good seller. The name Wagoneer is set to be revived again by Jeep, with the new for 2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

As you’d expect when looking at a model that’s based on a 2019 model year, details are very limited, but there have been small amounts of information leaked to the press.

2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Release date

We definitely won’t be seeing the new 2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer anytime before the third quarter of 2018, if at all … there are some rumors saying that Jeep have shelved the project, but we’re reasonably confident that they are just hype.

2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Price

Jeep CEO Mike Manley let slip that the Jeep Grand Wagoneer 2019 could cost anywhere upwards of $130,000; they are firmly targeting Range Rover customers, the current Range Rover V8 Autobiography LWB retails at $145.995 so expect it to be within that range.

2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Design

Some industry insiders are saying that the Jeep Wagoneer 2019 will look a little like a steroid fuelled version of the Grand Cherokee, just wider, longer and more menacing.

The renderings that we have seen show the Wagoneer to have unique seven-element headlights and taillights, some believe this to be in a nod to the seven-element front grilles that all Jeeps have.
We also think that the Grand Wagoneer will be built on a brand new platform, developed in conjunction with Alfa Romeo, using lightweight materials such as aluminum, all in a bid to keep the weight down and fuel economy up.

We don’t expect 2019 Jeep Wagoneer woody styling – it’s in the past.

2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Spied

The first official images of the upcoming new Jeep Wagoneer 2019 were shot in dealers meeting, along with another FCA brands car for North American market. Despite the images, there is still no 2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept appeared in any recent auto shows.

2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Specs

Regarding powertrains, we’ve heard rumor that the Grand will be fitted with a Hemi V8 and diesel and gas V6 motors, other rumors say that there will be a 3.0 V6 twin turbo in both diesel and gas and then a range topping 3.8 liter V6 twin turbo, and maybe (if we pray to whichever god we believe in) … a Hellcat powered option. As for transmission, we think Jeep will be going with an 8-speed auto, of course driving all four wheels.

If the Grand Wagoneer is to take on the might of Range Rover, it will have to be fitted with lots of technology and toys and trimmed to an exceptional level.

We hope that 2019 Jeep Wagoneer concept will be presented in the nearest future, featuring the exact design of the future SUV.
