Jeep unveils Wagoneer SUV concept

September 3, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Jeep showcased a prototype of the Wagoneer SUV, which will be the brand’s next flagship model.

The Grand Wagoneer differs from the current production models in the presence of both more angular contours and some original details. The prototype received a new grille, through which stretched an LED strip connecting the headlights, extravagant taillights, a glass roof with a map of Detroit printed on it, and 24-inch wheels.

The main sign of conceptuality in the cabin is a modern digital space, developed on the basis of the Uconnect 5 infotainment complex. It has seven screens, of which only one is non-touch – it is a customizable 12.3-inch dashboard.

The center console has two displays one above the other. The upper (12.1 “) is used to control the multimedia complex, the lower (10.3”) is in charge of the “comfort zone”. The front passenger has its own 10.3-inch touchscreen. Three more are intended for rear passengers: these are monitors on the backrests and a screen on the console between them.

Synthetics and suede were used in the interior of the Wagoneer. Wood inserts, however, should be a reference to the classic Grand Wagoneer, as is the 2-spoke steering wheel.

The prototype is set in motion by a hybrid powertrain, details of which are currently not available (according to unofficial information, 450 hp), and it also has a fully independent suspension with pneumatic elements.

Production of the new flagship will begin at Jeep’s Michigan auto plant next year. The novelty will compete with the Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator and Range Rover.

In addition, it was recently noted that the American company Jeep published information on the fuel consumption of the Gladiator diesel pickup. It should be emphasized that the information was published by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
