There is some great news from Chrysler. The legendary Grand Wagoneer is coming back. This iconic full-size SUV was originally launched a long time ago, in 1962. It was produced until 1991. For these 29 years, we saw five generations of it. However, this model is out of production for almost 25 years so it is questionable will new model have many similarities with its predecessor. In any case, it is officially confirmed and new model should come in about two or three years, probably as 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer details
It is officially confirmed. The 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is part of company’s new five-year plan. Since it will come more than 25 years after last model, we doubt that there will be anything more than same nameplate. It is pretty much legal to say that this will be an all-new model. According to the latest reports, 2018 Grand Wagoneer will use the same platform that will underprint next-generation Grand Cherokee, but it will come slightly modified for this occasion. So far, there isn’t too many details about new model. However, it is for sure that 2018 Grand Wagoneer will be a full-size SUV, with three rows of seats and probably a flagship model of the brand. When it is about styling, there is no much information. It is expected that new model will be adapted to the company’s new design language, but we also expect to see some unique features such as nostalgic wood panels on the side for example.

At this moment it is very hard to speculate about possible engines for 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

Expect to see some V6 unit as basic offer, for example 3.6 liter Pentastar, with around 270 horsepower. Some V8 engine is also expected to be offered. It will probably be a 5.7 liter HEMI V8, with over 470 horses.
