September 3, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - An all-new Grand Wagoneer Concept – introduced today in Detroit – marks the rebirth of a classic and premium American icon, providing a vision of what the modern expression of the original, ultimate, premium SUV can be.

The stunning and sophisticated Grand Wagoneer Concept’s debut instantly positions the storied Wagoneer name as a premium extension of the Jeep® brand. Wagoneer will define “American Premium” while delivering a unique and unprecedented customer experience.

“Our new Grand Wagoneer Concept marks the first step in the rebirth of Wagoneer – a true and rare premium American icon,” said Christian Meunier, global president of the Jeep brand – FCA. “With the electrification of each Jeep nameplate coming in the next few years, and the reintroduction of Wagoneer, we are quickly expanding into new segments and more premium space.

“Wagoneer is unquestionably rooted in the legendary Jeep brand and its unmatched heritage of leading capability, authenticity and freedom, and its return allows us to expand to a much more premium arena with new levels of design detail, and advanced safety and technology features,” Meunier added. “While Jeep vehicles bring leading capability, efficiency and performance across the mainstream SUV market, Wagoneer will ultimately become a portfolio of vehicles that will once again define ‘American Premium,’ making it the standard of sophistication, authenticity and modern mobility.”

The Grand Wagoneer Concept boasts a wide array of leading-edge premium technology – including an electrified powertrain, sophisticated 4x4 off-road systems, and a first-ever passenger screen in an SUV that is part of and an unmatched selection of upscale, premium interior features.

“For more than a quarter century, the first Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer created a new segment for American consumers as the ultimate premium SUV of its day,” Meunier said. “The new Grand Wagoneer Concept is our vision of what a modern expression of this timeless icon can be, and hints at how we will redefine and recreate the benchmark premium SUV.”

Born in America in 1962 for the 1963 model year, Wagoneer was the first four-wheel-drive vehicle mated to an automatic transmission, pioneering the first modern SUV. The 1984 Grand Wagoneer marked the beginning of the premium SUV, giving buyers an unheard-of combination of standard features, such as leather upholstery, air conditioning, AM/FM/CB stereo radios and added sound insulation, with a dramatic increase in horsepower and torque.

Always at the forefront was a beautifully crafted, stately design that exuded class, elegance and a premium feel. That formula continues with the new Grand Wagoneer Concept.

“The original Grand Wagoneer was the first premium SUV, and its timeless design combined with the soul of Americana helped it achieve an iconic place in many hearts,” said Ralph Gilles, head of design – FCA. “The Grand Wagoneer Concept is inspired by the original, but with a modern interpretation of luxury and freedom. We strived to create an elegant design with a timeless silhouette, featuring countless beautifully crafted details that come together to give it an undeniable presence.

“The Grand Wagoneer Concept’s interior is spacious and features premium materials that accentuate our team’s obsession to detail and celebrates American craftsmanship,” Gilles added. “A full digital cockpit takes advantage of leading technologies that are beautifully presented with expansive and easy-to-use screens and limited buttons, allowing the focus to be placed on a pleasant and intuitive experience for the driver and passengers.”

With this new Concept, the Grand Wagoneer nameplate features – for the first time ever – a spacious third row.

Production versions of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are slated to arrive in showrooms next year. They will be reborn in America – in Warren, Michigan, near downtown Detroit. As a nod to its manufacturing home and the brand’s headquarters, the Concept’s full-pane glass roof houses a map showcasing Detroit and the surrounding area.

When the production version of the Grand Wagoneer arrives next year, it will boast class-leading capability courtesy of three available 4x4 systems and the renowned Quadra-Lift air suspension, premium driving dynamics with an independent front and rear suspension, unmatched towing capability, powerful performance, advanced technology, safety and connectivity, a new level of comfort and best-in-class overall passenger volume – all wrapped in a stunning, elegant new design.

Grand Wagoneer Concept redefines what the ultimate premium SUV can be, boasting American craftsmanship and heritage
The Grand Wagoneer Concept encapsulates the future of the ultimate premium SUV with a focus on being both modern and authentic. A stunning, ultra-premium exterior, featuring modern-yet-familiar touch points and Obsidian Black accents across the exterior, creates a new timeless design.

The Grand Wagoneer Concept’s exterior design is anchored by a prominent Obsidian Black-accented grille featuring the Jeep brand’s iconic seven slots. Each slot features intricate lightweight latticework, while the space above and between each of the seven slots is lit to create a signature LED design. This LED pattern forms an elegant outline to the grille, helping to emphasize the width and overall front fascia of the vehicle.

The SUV itself is fully dipped in a stunning new Arctic Ice exterior paint, and directly above the grille sits raised illuminated letters spelling out the word Wagoneer. The design team created a custom-made font for all of the Concept’s exterior lettering.

On either side of the grille sits twin bi-functional LED projector headlamps that are cradled by genuine teak wood. Premium design meets capability in the form of an Obsidian Black aluminum front skid plate and accented front tow hooks.

From its side, the Grand Wagoneer Concept features a stately, distinguished profile. The Grand Wagoneer Concept SUV stands tall on 24-inch, multi-spoke, Obsidian-finished aluminum wheels featuring 3D-printed elements that reside just below the vehicle’s iconic trapezoidal wheel arches. A three-piece wheel cap features the Wagoneer logo suspended in acrylic.

Raised aluminum letters with copper-side accents spell out “Grand Wagoneer” on the lower third of each front door. An American flag flanks the aluminum letters and pays tribute to the brand’s home country.

LED taillamps wrap from the rear quarter panel to the back of the vehicle and create a solid form, which allows the vehicle to achieve a more upscale appearance and complements the overall exterior design statement. A subtle rear diffuser sits below the power tailgate and aids in the vehicle’s aerodynamics by guiding air for maximum efficiency.

A full suite of exterior LED lights, including premium LED headlamps, fog lamps and taillamps, enable the Grand Wagoneer Concept to shine in any environment.

The Grand Wagoneer Concept’s elegance is on full display before the doors even open. Upon remote activation, the full suite of exterior LED lights subtly engage with a full “welcome” sequence that brings the concept vehicle to life.

A full-pane glass roof visually expands the vehicle’s interior space and admits natural light to all occupants. Flanking the full-pane glass roof on both sides are roof rails, featuring four tie-down loop openings. Each loop opening houses additional teak wood that is supported by bronze latticework.

Teak wood was chosen both for its elegance and durability. Once seen primarily on yachts and in the most extravagant estates, teak wood is now a premium wood of choice for designers across industries.

An interior that exudes an ultra-premium upscale environment, rich with Grand Wagoneer heritage
The Grand Wagoneer Concept represents the pinnacle of ultra-premium, full-size SUV interiors with a modern American style, meticulously crafted details and elegant appointments that inspire upscale, premium travel.

True to its name, the Grand Wagoneer Concept offers a grand interior for up to seven passengers thanks to its spacious, comfortable front- and second-row captain’s chairs, as well as its third row - a first for the Grand Wagoneer nameplate. The relaxed atmosphere of the interior — accentuated by the use of customizable ambient lighting, both in color and intensity — offers a liberating feeling of tranquility for everyone on board.

The spaciousness of the premium interior is enhanced by large glass windows that offer greenhouse-like views, a feature that distinguished the original Grand Wagoneer and does the same for today’s modern Grand Wagoneer Concept. As the original Grand Wagoneer provided a window to the world, the new Grand Wagoneer Concept is inspired by premium transportation and architectural design, creating an exclusive environment for each passenger.

Many of the interior elements pay tribute to the rich history of the Grand Wagoneer, such as the two-spoke steering wheel. Opening the driver's door reveals the outer edge of the instrument panel that features an inscription — EST. 1963 — that pays homage to the first model year of the original Wagoneer.

A premium combination of sustainable materials
The Grand Wagoneer Concept provides the nameplate’s most spacious and premium interior ever delivered with refinement and elegance. Inside the cabin, an onyx glass mid-bolster runs the length of the instrument panel and gracefully accents the spaciousness of the interior. Glass is a sustainable, fully recyclable material that provides environmental benefits and is made of an abundant natural raw material.

The onyx glass mid-bolster appears to float above a structural wing crafted from sustainable raw aluminum, which was also chosen as the key material for creating the door speakers, shift knob and vent surroundings.

This structural aluminum wing cradles a 3D inlay of heat-treated lacewood across the instrument panel and the front doors. Emerging from under the structural aluminum wing is the center console, which flows out of the lower panel and adds a fluid design element to the spacious cabin.

The 3D wood inlay has a sculptural quality to it and reveals an elegant exposed edge on the instrument panel, doors and center console. “Grand Wagoneer” is inscribed in raw aluminum directly into the heat-treated lacewood on the passenger side of the instrument panel.

While the original Grand Wagoneer famously featured an extensive use of wood on its exterior, the Grand Wagoneer Concept houses a vast amount of genuine heat-treated lacewood along its interior. This is one of the many examples of how the design team was able to retell a new chapter of the original Grand Wagoneer story in a modern way.

Additional sustainable interior appointments include a full suede headliner made of Dinamica — a fully recyclable premium microfiber suede — as well as premium carpets made from Thrive fiber, which is comprised of recycled content using pre- and post-consumer materials. PUR, a sustainable synthetic material, was chosen to upholster all of the seating, console, door and instrument panel surfaces in the Grand Wagoneer Concept.

A technology-rich interior for drivers and passengers alike
Nearly 45 inches of total screen span the length of the instrument panel: a 12.3-inch driver information display behind the steering wheel, a 12.1-inch horizontal touchscreen serves as the main display screen in the center console, with a 10.25-inch horizontal comfort display touchscreen below, separated by the structural aluminum wing that controls the seats and the four-zone climate control. Additionally, a 10.25-inch passenger screen provides the front passenger with dynamic touchscreen control at their fingertips.

Second-row passengers have 30 inches of total screen space at their disposal with a 10.1-inch comfort display screen housed on the center console located between the two captain’s chairs. Each second-row passenger also has access to their own 10.1-inch entertainment touchscreen.

The technology-rich interior is powered by FCA’s all-new Uconnect 5 system, which delivers operating speeds that are five times faster when compared to the previous generation. Uconnect 5 is more connected, helpful, content rich and adds greater personalization, making it the most advanced Uconnect system ever. Additionally, Uconnect 5’s Android operating system lays a foundation, bringing access to a broad catalog of applications to answer the rapidly developing demand for an improved user experience (UX).

The Grand Wagoneer Concept is the only vehicle audio system in the world powered by McIntosh – another classic American luxury brand known for offering distinguished home audio systems that deliver the ultimate experience in music and film. The Grand Wagoneer Concept’s McIntosh audio system features 23 custom-designed speakers connected to a 24-channel amplifier that provides an immersive audio experience. The audio elements are designed in aluminum and gloss black, true to the design aesthetic of McIntosh’s high-end home audio systems.

Advanced premium electric-vehicle technology
The Grand Wagoneer Concept features a no-compromise plug-in hybrid electric vehicle powertrain system, in line with the Jeep brand’s plans to offer electrification options on all models in the next few years.

Electrification will modernize the Jeep brand as it strives to become the leader in “green” eco-friendly premium technology. These vehicles will be the most efficient and responsible Jeep vehicles ever, providing absolute and quiet open-air freedom while taking performance, 4x4 capability and Jeep’s fun-to-drive experience to the next level. With greater torque and immediate engine response, these electric vehicles will offer an even more fun-to-drive experience on the road and more capability than ever off the road.

Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer history
Born in 1962 for the 1963 model year, the original Jeep Wagoneer was the first four-wheel-drive vehicle mated to an automatic transmission, pioneering the first modern SUV. It was the first SUV that matched four-wheel-drive capability with state-of-the-art ride quality, a stylish appearance and premium interior. An independent front suspension was optional. Quadra-Trac®, the first automatic full-time four-wheel-drive system, was introduced in 1973.

The Grand Wagoneer debuted in 1984 and marked the beginning of the premium SUV, giving buyers an unheard of combination of standard features, such as leather upholstery, air conditioning, AM/FM/CB stereo radios, added sound insulation and wood-grain exterior trim. Considered “the gold standard of the SUV market,” Grand Wagoneer also featured a 360 c.i.d. V-8 with increased horsepower and torque and the segment’s highest towing rating.

FCA

Why the Original Jeep Grand Wagoneer Still Looms Large
The original Jeep Grand Wagoneer of the early Sixties was a fake-wood-paneled luxury icon. Can the new one live up to the hype?


Mar 11, 2021


2022 jeep grand wagoneer and wagoneer






The key to the appeal of the new Grand Wagoneer is the old Grand Wagoneer. The 2022 model, just revealed, appears to have all the grandeur of the original, without the 1960s technology and 1980s reliability—and without the woodgrain trim on the sides (sorry, that image up there is an illustration). Will the 2022 Grand Wagoneer’s production run span four decades? Probably not. But we certainly hope there really is a woodgrain option before it's done.


The demand for Jeep Grand Wagoneer nostalgia can be quantified many ways—per-capita ownership in the 02554 zip code (Nantucket), for instance, or the continued success of Wagonmaster—but let's look at Bring a Trailer. The auction site's Wagoneer page shows that 2017 was the last year when nice examples of Jeep's long-lived full-size SUV were occasionally selling for less than $10,000. Most of them go for at least twice that much now, with one resto-rod example fetching $79,000.


jeep grand wagoneer



Oh, if only I could time-travel back to 2013, when my neighbors bought a scruffy but presentable Wagoneer for $3500. They eventually traded it straight up for a Dodge Nitro because they needed a more reliable daily driver. And that should tell you a little something about Wagoneers, too: They can wear you down to the point that you’d rather have a Dodge Nitro.




The Grand Wagoneer we tend to think of when we hear the name—fake wood paneling, interior like a '70s rec room, frozen in a moment in 1985—is like the 1993–1997 North American Spec Land Rover Defender in that it was old even back when it was new. Introduced as the Wagoneer for the 1963 model year, Jeep's original luxury truck remained in production until 1991, a stretch that Jeep claims is the longest continuous U.S. automotive production run on a single unchanged platform. (Although the Chevy Express is arguably closing in on that streak.)

That's part of the reason for its appeal now: even though it was produced into the '90s, the Grand Wagoneer has 1960s flair. It's midcentury modern on wheels, an ageless design penned by Brooks Stevens, who's also responsible for the look of basically every Harley-Davidson of the past 71 years—he designed the 1949 Hydra-Glide. Some of his other credits include the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, the Miller High Life logo, and wide-mouth peanut butter jars. In the 1950s and 1960s, this guy was on a major roll.



1980s jeep wagoneer







1980s jeep wagoneer






By the end of its run, the Grand Wagoneer was incredibly dated but conceptually more relevant than ever. And now, a late Grand Wagoneer is, in many ways, more appealing than the modernized Grand Cherokee that replaced it. It was born into its role as a classic car, with angular lines, proudly fake woodgrain trim, and a drop-down tailgate with power rear glass. You can just imagine sitting there by a creek, readying your fishing gear, possibly with a dog waiting nearby. Some of these had a front bench seat. How great is that? Six passengers, two rows. By the early '90s, these were Hollywood shorthand for "successful-yuppie ride."


1987 jeep grand wagoneer




Yes, it also had solid axles with leaf springs, a big dumb carbureted Chrysler 360 V-8 (an engine that lived in the time of cubic inches, but: 5.9 liters), and a three-speed automatic. It earned an EPA rating of 12 mpg on the highway and was as slow as you'd expect out of 140 horsepower. Pre-1987, there was also a base-model 4.2-liter straight-six. That’s even slower. And build quality was typical AMC/Chrysler of the era, which is to say factory shoddy. A Grand Wagoneer probably won’t frag an axle or seize its engine, but its switchgear will die and its A/C will blow warm air and its trim will fall off. And things will leak, and strange noises and smells will periodically present themselves, until you might think hard about a straight-up trade for a Dodge Nitro.

2022 Jeep Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer Go Large, Long And Luxe


Mar 11, 2021


Jeep Wagoneer


Jeep has revived its famous Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models for 2022, harking back to their modern-SUV forerunners produced from 1962 through 1991.

Jeep Wagoneer fans have pined for a new model—including its famously piney, faux-wood paneling—since the charming original ended its three-decade production run in 1991.

The 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer reserve their (genuine) wood for a knockout, screen-saturated interior that not only puts Cadillac and Lincoln on notice, but reaches design heights typically associated with Range Rover or Audi.

Gee-whiz stuff includes up to seven onboard screens—one a Ferrari-esque display for a front passenger and three more screens in the back—Alexa and Amazon Fire TV, Android-based infotainment with over-the-air updates, McIntosh audio, night vision, 24-way massaging front seats, lovely Palermo leather and butcher-block-style wood trim.

Jeep Wagoneer


The swanky Jeep offers luxuries including Palermo leather, wood and metal trim, Amazon Fire TV, night vision and a McIntosh audio system.

“We Wanted to Do It Right”

That lavish cabin is a highlight of a Wagoneer that opens for customer pre-orders today (March 11), with deliveries beginning this summer. Jeep executives digitally unveiled the showroom version of its three-row Wagoneers for media last week, with an official introduction later today.

“We’ve been out of the market for more than 30 years since inventing the premium SUV,” said Christian Meunier, the former Infiniti president who took over as Jeep’s global chief in 2019, explaining the Wagoneer’s long absence and aborted revivals. “We wanted to do it right, get the investment behind it, and make it futuristic, beautiful and modern.”

As much as any vehicle, the Wagoneer lays a convincing claim as the true forefather of the modern, world-dominating SUV: Where models like the Jeep CJ, Ford Bronco and Toyota FJ were off-road trucks with no pretense to comfort, the Wagoneer was expressly designed as a more-civilized family vehicle, with four-wheel-drive and enough ground clearance to handle wilderness vacations and rougher terrain.

Introduced as a 1962 model, the Wagoneer also far predated Britain’s Range Rover (known today as the “Classic” Rover) that hit upon a similar, more-versatile philosophy beginning in 1970. Jeep executives noted the original Wagoneer’s “luxury” amenities, including air conditioning and available leather upholstery—even a CB radio. (Ask your parents, good buddy).

The Wagoneer itself was a relatively slow, crude, rust-prone tub compared with today’s SUVs. That included early models’ lockable front wheel hubs that required drivers to climb outside to engage four-wheel drive—reliably in icy or stormy weather that called for four-wheel drive. But nostalgia and demand have grown sharply for vintage versions: A 1991 Grand Wagoneer “Woody” (the “Grand” was added beginning in 1984) had a memorable callback as Skylar White’s criminal-enterprising car in Breaking Bad.

Jeep Wagoneer


Jeep says the pricier Grand Wagoneer starts from $88,995, versus $59,995 for a base Wagoneer; it can top out above $113,000, lofty pricing territory for Jeep. That includes a class-leading $2,000 freight charge, roughly 30 cents a pound. Cadillac and Lincoln get $1,295. Jeep

215 Inches Long, Tows 10,000 Pounds

For 2022, history’s largest Jeep is nearly 2.5 feet longer than the can-do original. The Wagoneer brings 215 inches of garage-stuffing length, on a 123-inch wheelbase. Curb weight ranges from 5,960 to 6,420 pounds. It’s also about 11 inches longer than a Cadillac Escalade, and nine inches shy of a Chevy Suburban-based Escalade ESV.

Unsurprisingly, Jeep offered multiple competitive claims for interior space: Class-leading legroom in the second row. Unmatched head- and legroom in the third row, cargo space behind row three, and a stadium-sized total passenger volume of 179 cubic feet. A 10,000-pound towing capacity is another segment first. Six-foot-plus adults can comfortably perch in the third row, in a Jeep flagship with a seven- or eight-passenger layout.

A boxed steel frame, heavy on high-strength steel, forms the solid backbone, though Stellantis and Jeep executives say that very little is shared with its Ram pickup. The body atop that frame is stylish, considering the school-bus proportions. It’s fronted by the latest take on Jeep’s signature seven-bar grille; with crisp, large-font “Wagoneer” or “Grand Wagoneer” lettering front and rear, and extra “liquid chrome” glitter on the swankier Grand Wagoneer.

A black contrasting roof is another signature cue for Grand Wagoneer, by way of Land Rover. A chunky body character line wraps all 360 degrees, with scalloped sides and and an awning of chrome atop rear taillamps. The new model nods to the past, obliquely, with its tabletop-flat roofline, U-shaped windows and forward-leaning grille. Tow hooks and skid plates are standard, powered running boards optional, with advanced driver assistance sensors hidden behind black-mesh lower bumpers.

Jeep Wagoneer
History’s biggest Jeep is about 11 inches longer than a Cadillac Escalade. And it’s massive inside, with seating for seven- or eight passengers, and 179 cubic feet of total passenger volume.

Starts at $59,995, Tops Out Above $113,000
The Wagoneer takes Jeep to new heights of luxury and tech, but also explores uncharted pricing territory for the brand. The lowest-priced Wagoneer will start from $59,995 including a $2,000 shipping charge. It gets a standard 5.7-liter V8 with 392 horsepower and 404 pound-feet of torque, including a boost from Stellantis’ latest eTorque mild hybrid system. That belt-driven, 48-volt system delivers up to 135 pound-feet of torque, with regenerative braking and seamless engine stop-start capability to save fuel.

“Grand” is no longer hyperbole for Jeep’s family flagship: Today’s Grand Wagoneer starts from $88,995, nearly $30,000 higher than the base model, and just $6,000 below a smaller, two-row Range Rover in base trim. A sleek Obsidian version, with black-on-black everything, starts from $98,995. And a fully loaded Grand Wagoneer tops out above $113,000.

To help justify the price, every Grand Wagoneer gets a 6.4-liter V8 with a hefty 471 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. Jeep pegs the Grand Wagoneer’s 0-60 mph acceleration at right around 6 seconds.

An air suspension—among the Ram pickup’s segment trump cards—is standard. Five adjustable ride heights include an off-road setting with a maximum 10-inch ground clearance. A body-lowering aero mode saves fuel, in tandem with active grille shutters and an air dam to reduce drag.(Jeep has not yet released fuel economy ratings.) Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer share an eight-speed automatic transmission.

“Like the Smallest Big Car You’ve Ever Driven”
Mike Uhlmeyer, Wagoneer chief engineer, said the Jeep is designed to handle “like the smallest big car you’ve ever driven.” That includes a fully independent multi-link rear suspension; a body-spanning steel cross member; and a slick double-wishbone front suspension with weight-saving, composite upper control arms, and aluminum lower arms. A Class 4 tow receiver hitch is standard.

Three 4×4 systems are on offer, including two with low-range transfer cases for off-roading or low-speed hauling. The familiar Selec-Terrain system features five settings to handle snow, mud, rocks and other conditions.Between four-wheel-drive and the electronic differential, Jeep says the Wagoneer can send up to 100 percent of torque to a single wheel if the other three are slipping.

With power, space and capability covered, the Jeep’s interior seems a prime selling point: It’s more luxurious than even the swanky Ram, widely viewed as the interior-design leader in pickups.

“You can put this Wagoneer interior against anything in the marketplace,” Meunier insisted.
Jeep Wagoneer


Taking a cue from Ferrari, Wagoneer offers a 10.25-inch passenger screen that lets a shotgun rider choose navigation destinations, control audio, stream video or connect to the Internet.
Up to 75 Inches (Combined) of Display Screens

Lavish leather, wood and metal trim abound, including an artistically fluted engine stop/start button that’s cupped into dashboard trim. A glittery, solid-metal rotary console shifter is backlit. Ambient lighting spills from a black-glass instrument panel and spreads across doors. Striking color-and-trim schemes include “Tupelo Honey” leather with butcher-block wood; a “Sea Salt” treatment in shades of light gray; a Metal package with woven-metal armor; and “Blue Agave” that handsomely combines navy-and-wood with green undertones.

Those pair with up to 75 inches of total, available screen displays, with a pair of 10-inch front displays standard. The TV studio’s worth of screens include a configurable driver’s display with full-width navigation capability, available Night Vision and a 10-inch color head-up display.

One optional screen serves the front passenger, allowing everything from movie viewing to Internet surfing and e-mailing—with a special screening film to ensure a driver doesn’t take a peek. Models with second-row captain’s chairs offer a stylish center console with a built-in control screen for rear passengers.

The impressive UConnect5 infotainment system, powered by the new Android Automotive operating system, is standard, after making its debut on the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica minivan. It brings five times the processing power of the previous version, along with sharply improved graphics, features and over-the-air updates.

Jeep Wagoneer


The Grand Wagoneer offers up to seven onboard screens. Those include a pair of sharp console displays, including an audio screen that animates the classic needle readouts of McIntosh amplifiers. (No relation to Apple; McIntosh Labs predates Apple Inc. by a quarter-century.)

The First Onboard Amazon Fire TV

Onboard Amazon Fire TV is an automotive first, with Alexa voice assistant and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Two Amazon shows can stream simultaneously on various screens, with a third available via HDMI connections. Families can start watching an Amazon show at home, then hop into the Jeep and continue where they left off. Designers said the surplus of screens could have come off as busy or overwhelming, without careful attention to the integrated layout. Chris Benjamin, Wagoneer’s head of interior design, said designers strived to blend the coolness and futurism of modern screens and black-glass surrounds with the warmth of natural materials and artisan-level craftsmanship.

“It’s all done with love, a hand-crafted feel and human touch,” Benjamin said.


Hands-Free Driving Coming

As for the inhuman touch, Jeep cites more than 120 available safety and security features, including all the expected robotic driving aids. One, an active driving assist, will offer an upgrade to allow hands-free highway driving later in the 2022 model year.

Sound gets its due with an optional system by McIntosh, among the world’s esteemed makers of audiophile systems. It brings 23 speakers and 1,375 watts of surround sound. Dramatic, radial perforated speaker grilles span the entire length of front doors. A center screen even mimics the dancing, analog needles of McIntosh’s prized vintage amplifiers.

Cue up “Ride of the Valkyries,” perhaps, for this Wagoneer’s Wagnerian opus of luxury and features, in a space large enough for a concert hall. The only concern, perhaps, is affording the ticket to its prime three rows.

“We are ready to start a new exciting adventure with a model that wrote some of the most iconic pages in the history of the American automobile,” said Christian Meunier, Jeep® Brand Chief Executive Officer. “Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are born from the Jeep brand, but they have a flair of their own, building on a rich heritage of craftsmanship and refinement, while offering new levels of sophistication, comfort and legendary 4x4 capability, as well as a new level of customer service.”

As a premium extension of the Jeep brand, Wagoneer launches with a portfolio of vehicles that includes two models: the all-new 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. While the Jeep brand broadly covers the North American mainstream SUV market from the compact to full-size segments, Wagoneer will significantly expand into the large SUV segment while Grand Wagoneer competes in the premium segment.

The 60-second "The Best Things" video, celebrating the arrival of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, can be viewed on the brand's social media channels, including YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Both the 60-second "The Best Things" video, in addition to a 30-second version of the spot, will have a special one-day run on both broadcast and cable television today.


Wagoneer, designed and engineered to compete in the heart of the large SUV segment, appeals to the classic, ever-growing American family and the couple that has it all. Creating an adventure with the ability to seat up to eight passengers and carry everything that comes with them is what the Wagoneer experience is all about. A best-in-class towing capability of up to 10,000 lbs. allows for almost any toy to be towed while occupants sit comfortably inside enjoying gracefully integrated advanced technology and connectivity.

Built in Warren, Michigan, the 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models are scheduled to arrive in showrooms in the second half of 2021.

Modern interpretation of an American-made icon
The 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models boast an elegant design with a timeless silhouette featuring countless meticulously crafted details that come together to deliver an undeniable presence. The new exterior design is confident, crafted with a wide stance, and features large architecturally drawn windows for enhanced outward visibility.

Inspired by the original SUV, the 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are a modern interpretation of American success that creates a new timeless, iconic design. The legendary seven-slot grille hints at family ties to the Jeep brand and, on Grand Wagoneer models, features paint-over-chrome laser-etched grille rings, similar to a knurled finish seen on fine watches. Grand Wagoneer Series III models feature raised aluminum badging with two-piece copperchino-accented letters that add to the refinement and highlight the attention to detail.

Distinct exterior features differentiate the two models. Wagoneer models feature LED headlamps, fog lamps, accent badging and a standard side step. Grand Wagoneer models feature a two-tone black accent roof, distinctive hood, front end, grille, unique premium LED lighting, fender flares and power retractable side steps as standard equipment. Front tow hooks are incorporated into both models’ front end when equipped with the Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package.

Wagoneer models feature four steel skid plates that protect the front axle, transfer case, fuel tank and rear stabilizer bushing (with Advanced All-Terrain Group).

Premium LED lighting with signature daytime running lamps (DRLs) flank the grille and provide a premium appearance with a Gloss Black background to accent its jewel-like appearance. The LED DRLs form an elegant outline of the grille, help emphasize the width and overall front end of the vehicle. A full suite of exterior LED lights with Dynamic Turn Signal, including premium LED headlamps, fog lamps and taillamps, amplifies the new aesthetic. Upon remote start, Grand Wagoneer’s exterior LED lights subtly engage with an available full “welcome” sequence.

A quick glance at the side profile reveals a stately, distinguished silhouette. The clean roofline and an A-line that runs all the way around the vehicle pay homage to the original Wagoneer. This functional structure features pillars that begin to define the rest of the vehicle instead of being hidden under lacquer. An acoustic laminated windshield and front door glass are standard equipment to reduce ambient noise levels.

From the rear, LED taillamps stretch from the rear quarter panel to the standard hands-free power liftgate, achieving an upscale appearance. Unique “Series” badging on the liftgate showcases in a subtle way how a particular vehicle is configured.

Wagoneer comes standard on 20-inch wheels, while an optional 22-inch painted and polished wheel is also available. Grand Wagoneer models come standard on 20- or 22-inch aluminum wheels featuring four different finishes and textures. A three-dimensional wheel cap highlighting the Wagoneer logo is suspended in acrylic.

Grand Wagoneer Obsidian (summer 2021) includes 22-inch black wheels, Black Oynx grille and badging, Gloss Black exterior mirrors, body-color wheel and door flares, Dark Onyx chiseled metal instrument panel trim, Global Black instrument panel and doors, Piano Black appliques and a McIntosh 1,375-watt premium audio system.

Exterior color options include Diamond Black, Bright White, Luxury White, Silver Zynith, Baltic Gray, Velvet Red and River Rock Blue. Grand Wagoneer models are also available in Midnight Sky Blue, Rocky Mountain Green and Ember Red.

An interior that exudes American craftsmanship, heritage and comfort
The pinnacle of premium SUV interiors is created with a modern American style, meticulously crafted details and elegant appointments. A spacious interior combines precision artistry and high-quality authentic materials throughout that accentuates an obsession to detail while celebrating American craftsmanship.

While the original Grand Wagoneer famously featured an extensive use of wood on its exterior, the 2022 Grand Wagoneer features genuine handcrafted Satin American Walnut wood in abundance on the interior. Sculpted Satin American Walnut wood was chosen both for its elegance and durability. Once seen primarily on yachts and in the most extravagant estates, sculpted Satin American Walnut wood is now a premium material. This is one of the many examples of how the Wagoneer design team was able to create a new chapter of the original Grand Wagoneer’s story in a modern way.

Wagoneer features a one-piece instrument panel, accentuating the grandeur of the interior, while Grand Wagoneer features a two-piece design, with an optional Piano Black mid-bolster that gracefully integrates advanced technology and connectivity. The Piano Black mid-bolster appears to float above a structural wing crafted from aluminum and cradles the sculpted Satin American Walnut wood with “Grand Wagoneer” inlaid in metal on the passenger side of the instrument panel. Aluminum was also chosen as a key material for creating the door speakers and vent surroundings. A formed aluminum trim with an embossed pattern is available on Grand Wagoneer as well and underlines the passenger screen. The center console emerges from under the structural aluminum wing and flows out of the lower panel, adding a fluid design element to the spacious cabin. An aluminum shift knob, featuring an ambient glow, sits at the base of the of the center console and is flanked by toggle switches that control Selec-Terrain and ride height systems.

The start button is surrounded by a knurl-patterned bezel and, on Grand Wagoneer models, is wrapped in leather with a French accent stitch, presenting itself atop the carved wood or metal trim.

Segment-leading innovation
Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer arrive with a combination of class-leading safety features that enhance a driver’s field of vision, help make instrumentation easier to see and enable driver-assist capabilities that accommodate collision avoidance.

Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer feature a new electrical architecture system that enables secure messaging in Controller Area Network (CAN) communications, which allows for enhanced driver assist features, such as Hands-free Active Driving Assist autonomous functionality.

Autonomous vehicle capabilities include Active Driving Assist, Hands-free Active Driving Assist and ParkSense Automated Parking System.

Active Driving Assist is the company's’ name for Level 2 (L2) automated driving capability. The technology affirms the company's march toward an autonomous future. Grand Wagoneer is available with Active Driving Assist for hands-on-wheel and eyes-on-road automated driving using lane centering with adaptive cruise control. The system uses multiple sensors, including radars and cameras to dictate appropriate roads for the technology.

Hands-free Active Driving Assist (late availability) offers hands-off driving at all speeds and lane centering on approved roadways, for even greater driving convenience. The system will predictively slow the vehicle down in tight curves, automatically resume control after driver override and verify that the driver is paying attention to the road.

Night Vision with Pedestrian and Animal Detection uses thermographic technology to augment the reach of the vehicle’s headlamps. Infrared sensors search for the heat signatures of pedestrians and animals in the road ahead, at distances up to 219 yards (200 meters). When located, their positions, relative to the vehicle, are outlined in the instrument cluster directly in front of the driver.

Intersection Collision Assist helps detect vehicles approaching from the driver’s left and right when nearing a crossroad. Four radar sensors and one camera determine if a collision appears imminent, prompting the system to provide audible and visual alerts. If the driver does not respond, the system automatically activates the vehicle’s brakes. The feature is available on Wagoneer and standard on Grand Wagoneer models.

Drowsy Driver Detection tracks vehicle movement, such as lane deviation and interaction, such as steering wheel input over time, for driving behavior consistent with that of a drowsy driver. When certain thresholds are reached, the system responds with audio and/or visual cautions for the driver to pull over. If the driver fails to react in such circumstances, the system can intervene with steering wheel input and/or brake activation.

The Digital Rearview Mirror system replaces the conventional rearview mirror with a 9.2-inch LCD that shows real-time video from a rear-facing camera. Unlike a conventional rearview mirror, the digital camera system offers a view that is unobstructed by the D-pillars or rear seats. When not in use as a display, the screen reverts back to a reflective mirror by toggling the switch underneath.

Available Traffic Sign Recognition uses a forward-facing camera to identify speed-limit and related traffic signs, such as those denoting school and construction zones.

An additional safety and security feature, available on Wagoneer and standard on Grand Wagoneer, is Surround View Camera. The system offers 360-degree, bird’s-eye views of the vehicle and its surroundings, enhanced by dynamic gridlines displayed on a 10.1-inch or 12-inch digital touchscreen.

With front and rear lens washers, the system is enhanced by Front Park Assist, which helps the driver position the vehicle. The Surround View Camera is available on Wagoneer and standard on Grand Wagoneer models.

Equipment levels on Grand Wagoneer are elevated even further with ParkSense Automated Parking System, which uses ultrasonic sensors to guide the driver into parking spaces. Stellantis is the first automaker to use this technology with a live, dedicated view on the infotainment screen for easy viewing.

A full suite of LED lighting includes LED headlamps that provide exceptional performance with a balanced beam of light that minimizes glare for oncoming traffic, while doubling the light output directly in front of the vehicle for improved illumination of the road ahead. Side lighting improves visibility while cornering and is activated by either steering wheel angle input or turn signal activations when the headlamps are on.

The body-on-frame’s design features innovative engineering that leverages the attributes of high-strength steel to help direct crash energy away from the cabin. It also features eight air bags: driver front, driver knee, passenger front, passenger knee, left first-row side, left-side curtain, right first-row side and right-side curtain airbags.

As standard equipment, active head restraints help mitigate injury risks associated with rear collisions, while there are three LATCH positions for safety-seat placement when the vehicle is configured with a second-row bench.

Three available 4x4 systems are the foundation of legendary capability
Three available 4x4 systems (Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II), an available Quadra-Lift air suspension and Selec-Terrain traction management system, instill this premium SUV with legendary capability.

Quadra-Trac I delivers full-time four-wheel drive without any switches to push or levers to pull. The system provides smooth operation of the vehicle over a variety of road conditions. This proven, lightweight single-speed transfer case is efficient for enhanced fuel economy and improves traction by moving torque to the wheel with the most grip.

The Quadra-Trac II’s two-speed transfer case uses input from a variety of sensors to determine tire slip at the earliest possible moment and takes corrective action. The system also uses throttle to anticipate quick movement from a stop and maximizes traction before tire slippage occurs. When wheel slippage is detected, as much as 100% of available torque is instantly routed to the wheel with the most traction.

Quadra-Drive II, with a rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential (ELSD), delivers industry-leading tractive capability. The system instantly detects tire slip and smoothly distributes engine torque to tires with traction. In some cases, the vehicle will anticipate low traction and adjust in order to proactively limit or eliminate slip.

Selec-Terrain is standard with Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II and five settings: Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow and Sand/Mud.

A mechanical limited slip differential is standard and an available rear electronic limited slip differential enhances traction in any condition.

This feature electronically coordinates up to 12 different powertrain, braking, 4x4 torque split and suspension systems, including throttle control, transmission shift, transfer case, Hill-descent Control and Selec-Speed Control.

The Selec-Terrain system has been refined for Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer duty and offers five different driving conditions to achieve the best driving experience on all terrains:
  • Auto: Automatically adapts to any on- or off-road situation
  • Sport: Engaged with the push of a button and provides enhanced on-road "fun-to-drive" capability
  • Rock: Quadra-Lift air suspension system raises to maximum height of 10 inches, while the transfer case, differentials, and throttle coordinate to provide low-speed control
  • Snow: Vehicle traction adjusts for ultimate performance over snow-covered roads
  • Sand/Mud: Traction control and Quadra-Lift operate with sensitive response to wheel spin, and torque tuned for optimal performance in sand/mud
Selec-Speed Control with Hill-ascent and Hill-descent Control allows drivers to control vehicle speed both up and down steep, rugged grades with Electronic Range Select (ERS) control on the steering wheel – without the need for throttle or brake pedals.

Selec-Terrain, coupled with the Quadra-Lift air suspension, offers drivers an adjustable suspension span that delivers legendary 4x4 performance.

Quadra-Lift air suspension system
The Quadra-Lift air suspension system adds up to 3.6 inches of lift span supported by four-corner air springs that provide an air-cushioned, premium ride. Quadra-Lift operates automatically or may be controlled manually with console controls.

The Quadra-Lift system features five height settings for optimum ride performance:
  • Normal Ride Height (NRH): 8 inches of clearance offers improved fuel economy, as well as improved aerodynamics during on-road driving
  • Off-road 1: Lifts the vehicle an additional inch from NRH for added height in clearing obstacles (9 inches)
  • Off-road 2: Delivers legendary off-road capability and provides an additional 2 inches from NRH for 10 inches of ground clearance
  • Park Mode: Lowers the vehicle 1.6 inches from NRH for easy ingress/egress. NRH and Park Mode are driver selectable, allowing the driver full control over vehicle ride height
  • Aero Mode: Lowers the vehicle 0.6 inches from NRH. Aero Mode is controlled by vehicle speed and adjusts for optimal performance and fuel economy. The vehicle will also lower to Aero Mode when in Sport Mode
When the vehicle is operating in Eco Mode, it lowers itself to Aero Mode, further enhancing vehicle aerodynamics for optimum efficiency.

Trailer Hitch Line-up Assist with zoom allows for a seamless connection to a trailer. With help from the rear-facing camera, dynamic grid lines assist in lining the trailer up and a zoom function on-screen allows for an even closer view, ensuring a proper connection every time. Combined with the adjustable Quadra-Lift air suspension system, drivers can lower the vehicle under the trailer hitch, making hook-up a breeze.

As the vehicle approaches 35 miles per hour (mph), a standard active front air dam automatically extends downward 3.5 inches. The available air suspension system lowers the vehicle 0.6 inches, improving overall aerodynamics and efficiency. An active grille shutter system automatically closes the airflow through the grille when cooling is least needed.

The cooling system has been optimized with enhanced sealing and active grill shutter hardware controls to maximize warm-up, drag and powertrain cooling when cruising and towing.

The 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer feature a 25-degree approach angle, 24-degree departure angle, 22-degree breakover angle and a ground clearance of 10 inches. This combination enables up to 24 inches of water-fording capability.

All-new architecture delivers sophisticated on-road driving dynamics and composed capability
The 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer feature an all-new architecture that delivers sophisticated on-road driving dynamics, a lightweight, durable body-on-frame design, composed 4x4 capability and best-in-class towing.

Substantial emphasis was placed on designing an all-new body-on-frame structure that uses high-strength steel to bolster vehicle performance, safety, reliability and reduce overall weight. The result is a body structure that is both strong and lightweight, balanced yet functional. Premium manners are enhanced with approximately 6,500 welds in the body alone. The use of lightweight, high-strength aluminum closures, including the hood, doors and composite liftgate, helps reduce weight and boost fuel economy.

Frame-mounted high-strength steel tire blockers are placed behind the front tires to force the wheels outward in the event of impact. Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer’s frame features side rails that are tall and fully boxed. Frame cross members are double sheer welded to the inside and outside of the frame for improved durability and roll stiffness.

Premium driving dynamics and refined on-road manners are thanks, in part, to a front and rear independent suspension. New front independent double wishbone suspension components combine lightweight composite upper control arms, aluminum lower control arms and geometry tuned for responsiveness and handling. The front stabilizer bar sits behind the front tires, further enhancing roll stiffness. A rear multi-link, coil-spring suspension provides a superior on-road ride, bolsters handling and provides better articulation over obstacles.

A front and rear coil-over shock design is standard equipment on all models. The standard steel suspension features rear load-leveling capability, which automatically detects load on the suspension from a trailer or payload. The gas pressure increases until the vehicle reaches normal ride height, leveling out and improving the loaded ride.

Wagoneer comes standard with coil spring suspension while an air suspension system with electronically controlled semi-active damping — available on Wagoneer, standard on Grand Wagoneer — further enhances ride quality. The air suspension features a closed loop system that recycles clean air that results in improved compressor durability. This air suspension system continuously adjusts stiffness to loading conditions to optimize ride performance. An external valve block and secondary air reservoir allow for both axles to lower simultaneously. Electronically controlled semi-active damped shocks on air suspension vehicles continuously adjust to road conditions and driving styles.

New active/electronic-tuned mass module absorbs more vibration and movement when at idle. This feature offers enhanced levels of comfort, versatility and performance. An enhanced active noise cancellation system, along with door seals and acoustic glass round out the enhancements that bring NVH and wind noise down to a whisper.

An electric power steering (EPS) system has been carefully calibrated to deliver a natural steering feel and enhances fuel economy. The electric motor works with an adaptive engine control unit (ECU) to monitor steering speed, steering wheel angle and vehicle speed. This allows for variable amounts of steering assistance to be applied, for example, when more is needed at low speeds maneuvering through a parking lot, or less when at highway speeds to enhance vehicle stability. The EPS system uses a variable rate ratio to improve maneuverability while maintaining on-center stability in all driving conditions.

Refined and proven V-8 power offers premium performance and best-in-class towing
The 2022 Wagoneer carries the proven 5.7-liter V-8 engine fitted with the next-generation 48-volt eTorque hybrid as standard equipment. The 2022 Grand Wagoneer is powered by the potent and smooth 6.4-liter V-8 engine. Both engines deliver performance, drivability and, when equipped properly, best-in-class towing capabilities of up to 10,000 lbs.

5.7-liter V-8 engine with next-generation eTorque hybrid system
Standard on Wagoneer, the 5.7-liter V-8 combines the muscle of 392 horsepower and 404 lb.-ft. of torque in a smooth, broad power band, enhanced with fuel-saving technologies that include variable camshaft timing and cylinder deactivation.

The Wagoneer is the first vehicle with the next-generation eTorque hybrid system, which features enhancements to several fuel-saving features.

The eTorque hybrid system replaces the traditional engine-mounted alternator with a belt-driven motor generator unit. The motor generator unit works with a 48-volt battery pack to provide quick and seamless engine start/stop, torque addition to the engine crankshaft in certain driving situations and brake energy regeneration, which improves responsiveness and efficiency. The system enables up to 130 lb.-ft. of torque to be available on initial throttle tip-in.

The eTorque motor generator feeds energy to a 390 watt-hour lithium-ion 12-cell Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC)-Graphite battery. The small suitcase-size, air-cooled battery pack mounts to the floor inside the Wagoneer’s cabin.

Enhancements for the next-generation eTorque include:
  • E-motor Assist: The eTorque motor provides electric assist to the engine from launch until the battery pack reaches a minimal state of charge, with the duration determined by throttle input from the driver.
  • Deceleration fuel shutoff: The system completely shuts off fuel delivery to the engine while the Wagoneer coasts down from highway speeds and under braking, enhancing economy.
  • No-delay start/stop: The Wagoneer anticipates rolling stops, shutting down the engine as soon as vehicle speed reaches 0 mph, enhancing fuel savings. Engine restart with the eTorque motor is seamless and instant, even in aggressive driving conditions. Wagoneer accessories are powered by the battery pack while the engine is stopped.
Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are the latest vehicles from Stellantis to offer auto start/stop functionality on the highest paved roads in the United States, including Mount Evans (14,100 feet), and extended auto-stop durations of up to 10 minutes in ideal conditions.

The system recaptures energy during deceleration and braking feeds it to the battery pack. eTorque has been further optimized for cabin, battery pack, transmission and engine warming in cold conditions.

With Fuel Saver Technology (cylinder deactivation), the engine control computer turns off fuel and spark, and closes the intake and exhaust valves on four of the engine’s eight cylinders during light load operation, such as highway cruising when full power is not needed.

Variable camshaft timing helps maximize fuel economy by reducing the engine’s pumping work via a delayed closing of the intake valve, which increases the expansion process of the combustion event.

The 5.7-liter V-8 engine with eTorque hybrid assist in the 2022 Wagoneer features an 850-watt electric cooling fan using Pulse Width Modulation to tailor the fan’s energy draw to the cooling demand. Eliminating the traditional fan blade mounted to the front of the engine reduces fan noise and helps improve fuel economy by reducing parasitic losses.

Wagoneer uses a 3.21 axle ratio with the 5.7-liter V-8 engine with eTorque hybrid assist.

6.4-liter V-8 engine
The 6.4-liter V-8 engine delivers 471 horsepower and 455 lb.-ft. of torque. It is engineered to provide a broad torque band to deliver the optimal blend of power and comfort regardless of the load and terrain.

Engineered to deliver class-leading V-8 performance and best-in-class towing capability, the 6.4-liter engine receives some unique adjustments to set new benchmarks for both power and performance. These include a unique exhaust manifold, intake manifold and moving the air box to the right side of the engine bay.

The 2022 Grand Wagoneer benefits from the V-8 engine’s plentiful low-end torque, which delivers in demanding conditions such as towing a boat, camper or horse trailer.

The 6.4-liter V-8 enhances fuel economy with Fuel Saver Technology cylinder deactivation and variable camshaft timing.

Combined with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, Grand Wagoneer delivers a new level of performance: 0-60 mph in six seconds.

Grand Wagoneer is standard with the 6.4-liter V-8 engine and 3.92 axle ratio allowing customers to optimize fuel economy and vehicle capability.

TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission
A standard robust TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission optimizes engine output with smooth gear changes while on the trails or provides efficient power delivery at highway speeds.

The 5.7-liter V-8 with eTorque hybrid uses computer controllers that process data faster to coordinate with transmission operation. Transmission clutch management is improved for brake regeneration and refinements in shift time, feel and torque responsiveness. Transmission lubricants are heated to reduce viscosity-related efficiency losses. There are more than 40 individual shift maps to optimize shift changes and points for fuel economy, performance and drivability.

The TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission offers a smooth driving experience. Whether commuting during the week or going to the lake house on the weekend, customers will enjoy a smooth, linear power delivery.

Fit-and-finish, surface quality, material options and the sound quality of moveable parts such as doors and storage bins were all subjected to rigorous testing.

Manufacturing
The 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are built at the Warren (Michigan) Truck Assembly Plant on the same line as the Ram 1500 Classic. In 2017, the company committed to retooling Warren Truck to build the all-new Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer and their electrified offerings. Two years later, the company announced that the plant investment would nearly double to $1.5 billion in order to also continue production of the Ram 1500 Classic. With the addition of the new products, it is expected that 1,400 new jobs will be added.

The Warren Truck investment is part of the company’s $4.5 billion commitment to invest in five existing Michigan manufacturing facilities and build a new assembly plant in the city of Detroit to meet the growing demand for Jeep and Ram vehicles. In total, the projects would create nearly 6,500 new jobs.

The original premium American luxury SUV
Debuting in 1962 for the 1963 model year, Wagoneer was the first four-wheel-drive vehicle mated to an automatic transmission, pioneering the first modern SUV. It was the first SUV that matched four-wheel-drive capability with better ride quality, a stylish appearance and luxurious interior. An independent front suspension was optional. Quadra-Trac, the first automatic full-time four-wheel-drive system, was introduced in 1973.

The Grand Wagoneer debuted in 1984 and marked the beginning of the luxury SUV, giving buyers an unheard of combination of standard features, such as leather upholstery, air conditioning, AM/FM/CB stereo radios, added sound insulation and wood-grain exterior trim. Considered “the gold standard of the SUV market,” Grand Wagoneer also featured a 360 c.i.d. V-8 with increased horsepower and torque and the segment’s highest towing rating.
