If you ask any FCA fan which is the most anticipated model for the next year, a usual answer would be 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Although there are many new models to come, including the next-generation Grand Cherokee, this one seems most interesting, considering that the famous nameplate is coming back after years of hiatus. As you’ve probably heard already, we are about to see both Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models in the offer. The Grand Wagoneer will be a long-wheelbase version of the same SUV, which will be more spacious and with the bigger cargo area.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be a flagship model of Jeep’s lineup. More interestingly, we are about to see a traditional body-on-frame platform, so you may presume that the new model will have a lot of things in common with the new Ram 1500. On the other side, we count on Jeep’s typical approach when it comes to the styling and overall aesthetics.
2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Redesign
When it comes to base design characteristics, the first thing we should mention is the platform. The new 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will ride on a body-on-frame platform. Therefore, you may presume it will have a lot of things in common with Ram 1500. The same platform and mechanics promise high capabilities. As we already mentioned, this will be a long-wheelbase version of the Wagoneer. We expect that the wheelbase will go over 130 inches, which promises a lot of space on the inside. It’s not hard to presume that the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will compete with models like Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition Max etc.
2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Styling
When it comes to the styling, it is still early to talk about details, considering that the new model is still under a camouflage. Still, we may presume some of the most basic solutions. First of all, we count on Jeep’s familiar grille layout, which includes those famous vertical bars. Practically, we presume that the front face will have a lot of things in common with the smaller Grand Cherokee. Still, count on a more rugged appearance and more SUVish look, considering that we are talking about a body-on-frame vehicle. Count on a typical wagon-like body, which will be boxy and quite long.
When it comes to interior design, we can’t talk about details at the moment. Still, we may count on a pretty upscale cabin, considering that recent FCA models are generally known for great interior quality. The new Ram 1500 is a perfect example, though we may presume that this dashboard will look a little bit less truckish. Of course, one of the most certain things is a full load of tech features, including that huge 12-inch touchscreen, which runs the company’s latest infotainment system.
On the other side, we have no doubt that the new model will be extremely spacious. Given the expected wheelbase, we may presume that all three rows of seats will offer more than 40 inches in legroom, which promises excellent comfort. Also, we count on about 120 cubic feet of cargo space.
2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, the smaller V6 engine probably won’t be in the offer. The base models should come with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, which is good for about 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. Of course, we count that the eTorque system will be a standard feature. Also, we count on something more powerful. The first engine that comes to mind is a bigger 6.4-liter HEMI unit, which would power the famous “SRT” badged models. Also, there is a chance to see a diesel version. If this happens, we have no doubt it will be a 3.0-liter turbodiesel, which is good for about 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.
Some reports also suggest that FCA is developing a new turbo inline-six engine. According to rumors, max output will definitely go over 500 horsepower, so this might be a perfect engine for the new 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer as well.
2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer sometime in the second half of 2020. When it comes to the price, base models should go somewhere between 50.000 and 55.000 dollars.
