The electrified version of the revived American SUV will be able to overcome up to 48.28 km in fully electric mode.

There are no official details about the revived Jeep Wagoneer SUV and its larger version of the Grand Wagoneer (presented above), but an insider source offers some new information about the long-awaited new product. It is reported that the new model will be presented as one of the most technologically advanced cars in the entire line of the Italian-American concern FCA, which includes Jeep.

In its production plan for 2018, Jeep announced that Wagoneer will receive a plug-in hybrid powerplant.

According to this source, the system has a sufficiently large battery so that the SUV can drive about 48 kilometers in fully electric mode. It is reported that the same eight-speed automatic transmission that the hybrid Wrangler will have will be used as a transmission. This source indicates that the PHEV Wagoneer arrives one year after the debut of the internal combustion engine version.

The source also suggests that the Grand Wagoneer get a luxurious interior. According to rumors, the novelty will receive a 12-inch dashboard display. In addition, the front passenger will have its own customizable screen for playing on the go. In addition, there is an additional entertainment system for rear passengers. For another screen in the rearview mirror would be a rear facing camera display.

The jeep is expected to offer high-quality materials for the Wagoner cabin. This will include leather upholstery and a combination of aluminum and wood finishes. It sounds like a very convenient place to go on a trip or even go off-road.

Jeep pushed the debut of Grand Wagoneer and Grand Cherokee from the original plan for their premiere at the Detroit Auto Show in June this year due to the cancellation of this auto show. The company allegedly decided to postpone the debut of the novelty for three months – that is, the car will be shown in September. The start of sales may begin before the end of the year.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Jeep again tested the prototype of the updated SUV Grand Cherokee 2021. A camouflaged prototype of the updated mid-size Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV was seen on the tests. The date of the official presentation has not yet been set.
