Chrysler is bringing one of its famous nameplates. The iconic SUV was in production for full three decades. The original version came in 1963, while the last series was in discontinued 1993. Later we saw a completely new SUV Grand Cherokee, which also became a legend. However, latest generations of the Grand Cherokee are modern crossovers. This leaves space for one true truck-based SUV. That is something that such renowned SUV maker like jeep definitely deserves to have in its lineup. So, the new model is about to come with the old name. The 2019 Jeep Wagoneer has been confirmed.
Moreover, it has been spotted on the road. From what we can see, the new SUV is going to be amazing. It will feature a completely new architecture. Also, we are about to see a completely new, pretty rugged styling in a true SUV manner. Expect its arrival next year.
2019 Jeep Wagoneer redesign
Although with a familiar nameplate, the 2019 Jeep Wagoneer will be a completely new model. After so many years, we are about to see a new version of the iconic nameplate. According to latest reports, it will come in a true SUV manner. It will feature an old-school body-on-frame chassis, the same that will be used for the new Ram truck. Moreover, these two models will have so much in common. They will share the platform, engines, styling and even interior design. The 2019 Jeep Wagoneer will feature the same rugged front end as the upcoming truck.
The cabin should also feature the same layout. We are about to see a spacious interior. Since it will be a full-size SUV, it is no wonder that three rows of seats will be a part of the base package. Even more spacious version, with a longer wheelbase, will come as Grand Wagoneer.
2019 Jeep Wagoneer engines
The new 2019 Jeep Wagoneer will share the platform with the new generation of the famous Ram truck. This means the same powertrain lineup as well. The company’s spokesman already announced that the next generation of Ram truck will be hybridized. So, we should expect the same system in the new SUV. Besides electrified version, we are about to see familiar engines from Chrysler.
The base version of the new SUV will most likely feature a familiar 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. However, the real deal will start with V8 units. At the moment, there are two engines of this kind in the offer. A smaller one features a displacement of 5.7-liters. Also, there is the even bigger 6.4-liter V8 unit that could come as an option. On the other side, we don’t have information about diesel engine, but most likely, we won’t see a problematic V6 in the 2019 Wagoneer.
2019 Jeep Wagoneer release date and price
The 2019 Jeep Wagoneer will be a completely new model. It is currently under development. The test model has been spotted already, but it still wears a camouflage. However, latest reports suggest new SUV should be finished quite soon. The new Ram-based SUV will probably have the premiere somewhere in the first half of the year, while production should start a little bit later. So, expect its launch in the second half of the next year.
When it comes to the price, the exact details are still unknown. However, we can presume that 2019 Wagoneer will cost in a similar range as other full-size SUVs. So, base models should be available around 45-50.000 dollars.
