After about two decades, the Jeep manufacturer might bring back its full-size SUV, the iconic Grand Wagoneer. If the latest news is true, the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer might see the light of the day sometimes by the end of the next year. So, the next generation model will surely bring many upgrades in all the segments starting from the all-new platform which underpins the new Ram 1500. Furthermore, its exterior will get more modern and aggressive touches while the interior will be more quality and equipped with the latest technology. Engine-wise, we are expecting several strong engines and a plug-in hybrid powertrain also.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer types of engines
On the engine front, the brand-new 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer should offer several types of engines. Although it is still not officially confirmed, the upcoming Grand Wagoneer will come with a range of V-6 and V-8 units. However, the plug-in hybrid version is also very likely to join since the manufacturer has confirmed its intentions to make 4 all-electric model and 10 plug-in hybrid vehicles by 2022.
So, to start with the base unit and it will most likely be a 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engine. As well, the latest rumors have also revealed that the Grand Wagoneer will feature the new six-cylinder unit too. And we can also expect the familiar 3.0-liter V-6 diesel also.
Moreover, we also expect a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine which is able to develop about 360 hp. As well, the strongest powertrain in the lineup is going to be a 6.2-liter V-8 Hellcat unit. This engine is rated at 719 horsepower and will probably be offered in the top-line model, the Trackhawk. It will work with an 8-speed automatic transmission and the all-wheel drive will be standard.
Design of the exterior and interior
The 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer should be based on the same body-on-frame architecture which also underpins the new Ram 1500. This platform is now a bit longer and lighter because of the usage of lightweight materials such as high-strength steel. So, this will affect its weight and make it lighter for roughly 100 pounds.
Furthermore, in the terms of design, the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will feature some similar design cues from the Grand Cherokee model. But, dimensionally, the Grand Wagoneer will be larger. The front end will be inspired by the Cherokee. And will get the brand’s well-known grille and the new LED dot pattern lighting in the headlamps. The tail lamps will also feature this same lighting as the headlights.
Inside the cabin, the all-new 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will arrive with three rows of seats. The whole interior will be upgraded with more modern and quality materials, and with the latest tech features. The dashboard will be fitted with the new 12.1-inch UConnect touchscreen. We still don’t have the information about the precise equipment, but it will surely be on the highest level.
Release date and price
Although this information is not officially confirmed, we are hoping to see the new 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer sometime by the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. The price is unfortunately not known, and according to some rumors, it could be up to $120,000.
