2018 is still far from the present, but there are already some speculations about cars that should hit the market in that year. One of the most anticipated is 2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Coming as a 2019 model, it will take Wagoneer to a higher level. Even though the information is scarce and much of the things are unknown, we tried to gather all details we could’ve found and write a decent review. You may like its design or not, but don’t judge a book by its cover. Everything has pros and cons and so does upcoming Wagoneer.
Trim or Separate Model?
If you are a Jeep fan then you have already heard of Wagoneer. However, it was coming as one of the trims of Jeep Grand Cherokee. At least until know. Mike Manley, CEO at Jeep, announced that Wagoneer is coming as a separate model for the first time. It is going to share a platform with Grand Cherokee and will have many similar characteristics, but it will still come as a separate model. It should be more luxurious than Cherokee and the biggest difference is going to be the interior.
We must let you down, but there is absolutely no official data about the engine lineup. Not a single one. Although there are several rumors all of them come from unreliable sources thus we don’t want to mention them in this article. It is quite possible that 2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is going to have the same engine options as Grand Cherokee. According to this, there should be at least two different powertrains. On one hand, there is a 3.2l six-cylinder. It comes with an output of 270 horsepower. Many of you probably think this amount of output is not enough for a vehicle this size, but you probably won’t have any problems.
If you are still dissatisfied with the engine, luckily there might be at least one more unit. Instead of the 3.2l, you can opt for a 5.7l eight-cylinder HEMI. This unit can deliver more output than the first. It can generate 370 horsepower which should satisfy even the most demanding customers. However, please have in mind that engine lineup is still being kept of record and we must wait for the official announcement. We are especially looking forward to hearing the maximum speed, towing capacity, and acceleration.
2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Design
Basically, new 2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is going to take after the Wagoneer. Also many believe it is going to share lots of features with Maserati Levante SUV. Some of them even think these two are going to share the same powertrain, but this is less likely. At this moment we can’t anything else regarding the exterior. Jeep probably hasn’t done with designing the car’s exterior and we have to be patient for some time.
Last Wagoneer which was released as a trim level of the Cherokee came with huge panoramic roof and leather-wrapped seats. It is able to accommodate up to seven people. We are not sure at this point whether 2019 model is going to have seven seats or less. Regardless of the number of seats, we believe it will have enough room for every passenger. Technology is going to be top-notch and will have big LCD touch panel placed on the dashboard.
Price and Release Date
2019 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is scheduled for the late 2018 so there is still a lot of time until then. We just hope that Jeep is going to release the rest of the information soon, price as well. The most expensive car from this class coming from Jeep factories is Cherokee SRT which costs around $60,000. We strongly believe new Wagoneer won’t exceed this price.
