For many years, FCA doesn’t have any model to represent in the segment of full-size SUVs. Models like the Ford Expedition and Chevy Suburban are dominating the market for years and things are finally about to changes, as the new 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is coming. The legendary nameplate is about to come back, after decades of hiatus. Moreover, both Wagoner and Grand Wagoneer are about to come.
The former is about to compete with models like Expedition and Tahoe, while the Grand Wagoneer will be a stretched version, just like the Suburban and Expedition XL models. Therefore, the whole segment is about to get one very fresh competitor, which will besides (expected) great design characteristics, also come with the famous nameplate. Therefore, this model has all the conditions to become successful. According to the latest reports, it should arrive sometime in the next year.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Design
The first thing that comes to mind about the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is the platform. Of course, Jeep isn’t going to develop a completely new one. We expect to see the same architecture that underprints the recently redesigned Ram 1500 pickup truck. Two models will become corporal siblings, with many parts shared. This means benefits in many ways, starting from a lightweight body and pretty good overall efficiency. This particular version will feature a stretched version of the platform, so count on a pretty long wheelbase, which will probably measure around 130 inches. Therefore, count on plenty of comfort and convenience.
Speaking of comfort, we presume that the new 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will follow its rivals in terms of the suspension design. As you probably know, the current-generation Expedition features an independent rear suspension. The upcoming Suburban will come with the same design, so if FCA wants to be competitive, this seems like a must.
This aspect of the new model is still a mystery. So, we can only speculate about general things. As we mentioned, the new 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will probably measure around 130 inches in wheelbase, which means a pretty large body. In terms of aesthetics, we are pretty sure that the new model will stick to the brand’s proven design language. As a flagship model, it probably won’t feature too many experiments. We expect on a classic design, with a lot of similarities with the current-generation Grand Cherokee.
This particularly refers to the front end, which should come with a similar approach, On the other side, the rest of the body should feature a typical wagon layout. Of course, more details will be known once we see a test mule. That is expected to happen soon.
Once again, it seems pretty early to talk about some more specific details. We are pretty sure that even Jeep’s designers still don’t know the final look of this full-size SUV. Still, we may presume it will take a lot of inspiration from the new Ram 1500. The new generation of the famous truck features a pretty impressive interior quality, full of style and high-grade materials.
On the other side, we are pretty sure about the overall layout. Count on three rows of seats. Since the wheelbase will be pretty long, the third row should be pretty generous in terms of legroom as well. Same goes for the cargo area, which should offer plenty of cubic feet. Finally, count on a lot of tech features. Jeep models are generally known for great infotainment systems and the new 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer shouldn’t be an exception.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Engine
We expect that the 2020 Grand Wagoneer will mimic the engine lineup of the new Ram 1500. Therefore, we should see a pretty wide palette of engines. Base models will probably feature a familiar 3.6-liter V6, while the famous Hemi V8 units will be in the offer as well. We count on all three of them, including the monstrous 6.2-liter Hellcat, which will be reserved for the most capable versions.
Finally, a diesel version should be in the offer as well. We count on a familiar 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, which will for this occasion probably feature around 280 horsepower.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Release Date and Price
The launch of the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is relatively far away. Currently, we are waiting to see the testing model. Once it hit the streets, we should be able to make some predictions about the release date. When it comes to the price, base models will probably go around 50.000 dollars. As we already mentioned, key rivals will be Chevy Suburban and Ford Expedition XL
