The Jeep Grand Cherokee is great, but is it park-it-outside-my-Martha’s-Vineyard-summer-house great? Perhaps not, which is possibly why Jeep absitively to accompany aback its ultimate burghal cachet symbol, the Grand Wagoneer. Aback in 2016, Jeep bang-up and accepted Fiat Chrysler (FCA) CEO Mike Manley accepted that the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer would date a comeback. Here’s what we know, and what we’ve heard, about the pair.
FCA appear a $4.5 billion advance in assorted Michigan plants, and as allotment of that, accepted the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer would go into assembly in aboriginal 2021. They’ll be congenital at FCA’s Warren, Michigan plant, which currently makes the previous-gen Ram 1500 (sold as the Ram 1500 Classic). The bulb will get a $1.5 billion advance to retool for these Jeep siblings.
In its 2018 basic markets presentation, Jeep said that it intends to action a constituent amalgam alternative for every agent it sells. That includes the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Right now, the alone constituent amalgam FCA offers is the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, which makes 260 hp from an Atkinson-cycle V6 and two electric motors. It’s cryptic if the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer would get a agnate setup, or article absolutely different.
Last year, we baldheaded a certificate from manual supplier ZF that adumbrated a Grand Wagoneer Trackhawk with a supercharged Hellcat V8 was on its way. At one point, ZF was alive on a high-torque adaptation of its admirable automated for the Grand Wagoneer. This transmission, code-named ZF-8HP95X, is alone acclimated in the Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
Of course, this certificate could announce artlessly that at one point, a Grand Wagoneer Hellcat was actuality activated with no ambition of production. We can dream, though.
Speaking to Auto Express aback in 2016-before the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer were reportedly delayed-Mike Manley said the Grand Wagoneer ability amount up to $140,000. That’s austere bread for a Jeep.
It signals the company’s ambitions to attempt with SUVs like the Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz GLS, Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. The two Americans in that accumulation can get to about $100,000, while an AMG GLS63 costs about $130,000 and the Range Rover can beat $200,000.
This column will be always adapted as we apprentice added about Jeep’s abutting SUV.
