Future Jeep Grand Wagoneer is only a concept

It was at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2011 that the late Sergio Marchionne announced that the Grand Wagoneer would return in early 2013. That didn’t happen, but FCA announced the model in January 2017 as part of an investment that will allow Jeep to introduce a smaller Wagoneer and a Wrangler-based pickup truck. But this did not happen either.

In the past few weeks, Jeep has begun teasing fans with teasers of the new model that have announced the long-awaited debut of the Grand Wagoneer. That will finally happen next week when the luxury large SUV premieres during the online event alongside the plug-in hybrid version of the Wrangler. To our surprise, it turned out that the Grand Wagoneer would actually be a concept car.

While this may be disappointing, it also has a positive: both Wagoneer models will hit the assembly line in Q2 2021. This leads us to believe that the concept will be practically serial.

Jeep’s Facebook Live invite clearly states that we’ll see the larger of the two SUVs as early as September 3rd. From what the teasers showed, the Grand Wagoneer will be retro-styled right down to the grille and badges, while the interior will be far more luxurious than any other Jeep.

In addition to the two Wagoneer models and Jeep’s electrified Wrangler, another novelty can be expected as the new three-row SUV goes into production in the first quarter of 2021 and sits between the Grand Cherokee and the Wagoneer. Speaking of the Grand Cherokee, the next generation model should hit the assembly line in the third quarter of 2021.

But that’s not all. Spy shots have shown that the V8-powered Wrangler is already undergoing tests, and we also know from Jeep that the compact crossover, which will be smaller than the Renegade, is due to arrive in 2022. Another series of spy shots showed us that Jeep is preparing an updated Compass with a new infotainment system.
