The Jeep Grand Wagoneer Debut is Only Days Away

Jeep has spent the last few weeks teasing the hotly-anticipated Jeep Grand Wagoneer model. The brand brought its teasing to an end when it revealed a simple message across its social media channels: “Coming Sept. 3.” Now we know when Jeep plans to reveal the long-awaited three-row SUV behind the curtains. In recent videos posted on the brand’s Twitter feed, the brand referred to the upcoming SUV as “the shape of premium.” The video, of course, doesn’t reveal much, but viewers do get a glimpse of the Grand Wagoneer’s silhouette with a backlit skyline as the shot quickly pans out. The only thing the video reasserts is the fact that the Grand Wagoneer is likely to be a much beefier Grand Cherokee. 

The remaining teasers that Jeep offered up don’t reveal much at all either. So far, fans and prospective buyers have only gotten a glimpse of a heavily-stylized seven slot grille, and a beautifully detailed dial that appears to be part of the infotainment system. Experts suspect that the dial button in question may also be a toggle for drive modes or a knob that works as an electronic gear selector. The only other image available is just a close-up of the Grand Wagoneer’s classy badge. Luxury is the name of the game and Jeep is attempting to make up for lost time as it enters the three-row luxury SUV segment. Some early reports suggest that the Grand Wagoneer will have a matching six-figure price tag, but nothing is official until Jeep makes the formal pricing announcement. 

A standard Jeep Wagoneer is also expected to arrive alongside the debut of the Grand Wagoneer, but it probably won’t be as glitzy. It likely will not be as spacious — the standard Wagoneer is expected to seat no more than five passengers. Both upcoming Wagoneer models are rumored to ride on the Ram 1500 chassis, with an altered plug-in hybrid variant coming down the pipeline as well. Production is slated to kick off about a year from now, meaning Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer units should be rolling off the assembly line by the fourth quarter of 2021. A new generation Jeep Grand Cherokee is around the corner as well.

Designed to slot above the Grand Cherokee in the brand’s lineup, the Grand Wagoneer trades in its smaller sibling’s architecture for a body-on-frame setup. Like we mentioned earlier, its underpinnings will be adopted from the popular Ram 1500 full-size pickup, thus it’s likely that the Grand Wagoneer will boast towing and hauling abilities that’ll put it at the top of its class. One difference between the Ram 1500 and Grand Wagoneer? The Grand Wagoneer will feature an independent rear suspension setup, unlike the live axle that’s part of the Ram 1500’s underpinnings. 

The Jeep lineup already has plenty to offer buyers thanks to its models that range from total off-road icons, such as the all-new Jeep Gladiator and the Jeep Wrangler, to top-tier SUVs like the Grand Cherokee.
