The brothers and sisters of the Great Traveller have arrived.
And better opponents
, Just landed. After months of teasing and
, Stellatis finally showed us a brand new reinvention of the classic nameplate,
As these two names imply, the "regular" Wagoneer is a less luxurious model, but there are still many exciting things. First, the Wagoneer is powered by the familiar 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which produces 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque (plus a 48-volt eTorque hybrid system). Wagoneer has two configurations, 4x2 and 4x4, suitable for everyone, and has a towing capacity of up to 10,000 pounds, aiming to become the ideal all-round luxury SUV.
Wagoneer provides several configurations, which we will introduce in a short time, but in the whole range, advanced LED lighting is the standard configuration for the exterior of the vehicle with dynamic turn signals. Available in 20-inch and 22-inch wheels, and the exquisite bodywork is available in Diamond Black, Bright White, Luxury White, Silver Zynith, Baltic Grey, Velvet Red and River Stone Blue.
Where's the cabin? Jeep said that Wagoneer offers "best-in-class total passenger capacity, total capacity, best-in-class third-row headroom and second-row and third-row headroom, with the largest cargo volume after the third row." It is definitely spacious, but also very beautiful. An integrated instrument panel provides a clean and tidy appearance, while numerous real aluminum decorations highlight the luxury ambitions of the SUV. Even the "Start" button is surrounded by a knurled frame, while the HVAC vents get a liquid chrome frame.
Leather upholstery is standard throughout the series. 12-way power front seats with memory settings are also standard. You can choose the second-row captain’s chair to maximize the comfort of the second-row seat degree. Of course, this must be balanced by technical load to make everyone happy.
Wagoneer has what Jeep calls "the most advanced Uconnect system ever." If you have all the options, Wagoneer is equipped with a digital display area up to 50 inches. The 10.25-inch driver display is standard, while the 10.1-inch infotainment display is standard. Just like the modern Audi, the auxiliary 10.25-inch touch screen is located below the main screen, and the aluminum wing separates the two. In the second row, a pair of 10.1-inch rear-seat entertainment screens with HDMI input and Amazon Fire TV for automatic functions are provided. But wait, there is more! Before the shotgun seat, you can choose another touch screen monitor with a nominal height of 10.25 inches. This screen can access navigation and connected smartphones, as well as the infotainment system and the ability to view the external camera display.
Further technical options include a 10-inch full-color head-up display, supplementary features, such as lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and available fully digital rearview mirrors. The screen can also be switched back to a traditional mirror with just a push of a switch. If you prefer to look at the back of the car with a mirror instead of checking your little ones, you can use a surveillance camera with a rear-view mirror. Split screen display and "zoom to seat" function.
Naturally, the usual additional components are provided, such as heated and ventilated seats, configurable ambient lighting with various modes, wireless charging, up to 11 USB ports, and a premium sound system.
Wagoneer offers Series I, Series II and Series III interior levels, but the Series I variant will be late. First, you need to get the II series standard in 4x2 or 4x4 configuration. As standard configuration, you will get 20-inch wheels, 10.1-inch Uconnect infotainment display, 9-speaker Alpine sound system, three-zone automatic climate control system, and Nappa leather on the bench, which can provide enough space for 8 people. Make it sit comfortably.
A Series II Premium version is also available, which offers 22-inch wheels, a co-pilot display, and features such as a pair of rear seat 10.1-inch displays for Amazon Fire TV for Auto. It also provides a three-pane sunroof, a surround view camera and a head-up display.
As you might expect, in the III series, the off-road version is the only Wagoneer equipped with 4x4. The model uses 20-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires, a two-speed transfer case, a 3.92 rear axle ratio, an electronic limited-slip differential and Select-Speed Control, and is very capable when driving. For ground clearance of up to 10 inches, the Quadra-Lift air suspension is standard here, and the anti-skid plate protects the front suspension, fuel tank, transfer case and front panel. This model also has a 19-speaker MX950 audio system equipped with a 10-inch subwoofer, while a three-pane sunroof, parking assist system, surround view camera and Intersection Collision Assist further differentiate it from small models. The chrome tow hook keeps it away from the outside world.
Finally, there are three-series premium cars, very similar to off-road vehicles, but without air suspension, transfer case, modified rear axle ratio, skid plates and tow hooks. Instead, you get a dual-screen rear seat entertainment system, 22-inch wheels, upgraded 19-speaker audio, front passenger touchscreen display, electric side pedals, and a heavy-duty trailer kit.
The Series II Standard starts at $67,995, with an AWD option of $3,000. On Series II Premium, you need to pay $77,270 for 4x2 and $83,465 for 4x4. The Series III premium 4x2 starts at $83,970, the 4x4 starts at $88,965, and the off-road model starts at at least $86,665. The suggested retail price of the later I 4x2 series is $57,995. All models charge a $2,000 destination shipping fee, but if it sounds like a lot, then Jeep will make 10 guarantees to buyers, which basically guarantee excellent service and after-sales support. Supply will begin in the second half of this year.
