A revived Jeep Wagoneer will get a more off-road version of Mojave?May 9, 2020
The American brand plans to introduce a new version of the once-popular Jeep Wagoneer SUV in the Mojave version, which is even more focused on conquering off-road.
The performance “Desert Rated” debuted at the beginning of this year on the American Jeep Gladiator – the car was intended for those who need a more off-road version of the mid-size pickup truck – the novelty received many chips to conquer even the most severe off-road terrain. A few days ago there was a rumor that the Wrangler SUV could also get a similar version.
It turns out that Jeep management plans to introduce a more off-road performance for the revived Wagoneer.
Although the article only mentions that the regular Wagoneer will receive the Mojave version, we know for sure that Jeep will also offer the larger Grand Wagoneer in the same version. It is known that both will use the Ram 1500 pickup as the basis.
There is also the possibility that Jeep will release its next-generation mid-size SUV, Grand Cherokee, in a more off-road version of the Mojave, although the article says that in the end, the company can decide to limit itself only to the Deserthawk version. This model performance is reserved for off-road vehicle versions of the brand that have more off-road capabilities than standard models, but are not as competent on bumpy roads as the Mojave versions. A version of the Deserthawk can also get a compact Cherokee crossover.
It is worth noting that, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Jeep delayed the start of production of Grand Wagoneer and Grand Cherokee for several months, although it is unclear whether this will also affect the dates of their debuts.
Although at first the new designation scheme for American brand models may seem a bit confusing, it testifies to Jeep’s intentions to release more “tough” versions of its models, designed for those who are seriously involved in off-road driving.
