The 90s are coming back again in basically any possible way. This refers to the music, movies, dressing and a lot more. However, the automotive world is getting interesting for that reason. Nowadays, you can often hear about the manufacturer reviving its old nameplate from the 90s. Well, the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is coming later next year.
According to numerous reports, this SUV is in the works and it will unique as it was before. Both Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer variants will be available. Moreover, this SUV will ride on a RAM’s next-gen pickup truck platform. Besides that, an iconic seven-slot grille is the most possible outcome in terms of design.
This is an interesting part. Previous speculations predicted for the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer to be a unibody SUV. Whatsoever, the chassis shared with Dodge Durango was the main topic for weeks. Well, it seems that the Jeep will do totally opposite thing.
New SUV will arrive as a body-on-frame model and it will share the architecture with the next-gen RAM pickup truck. Knowing that Grand Wagoneer will be something closer to the Cadillac Escalade, Infiniti QX80 or Lincoln Navigator. Regular Wagoneer variant will be shorter and it is a similar two-wheelbase strategy as the GM and Ford has.
No doubt, Jeep’s designers will have a tough task when it comes to exterior design. The 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will look unique in so many ways. However, company’s recognizable seven-slot grille will be present for sure. New Grand Wagoneer will mix some old-school cues with modern features and high-quality touches.
LED headlights, additional chrome accents, and premium optional wheels are all in the offer. Thanks to its off-road ability, you can expect various gear such as all-season tires and skid plates. However, general vehicle’s appearance is a mystery for now.
Possible Engine Options
Thanks to its close relation with RAM’s new-gen pickup truck, this SUV will borrow the engine as well. The buyers will have to choose between a standard 3.6-liter V6 and a 5.7-liter V8. On top of that, larger 6.4-liter Hemi V8 will be optional. This engine produces 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission will come as standard and it will provide very smooth shifting.
We could also expect a diesel version that will run on a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel. This output will return around 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Numerous driving modes are in the offer, along with the optional full-time AWD setup.
2021 Grand Wagoneer Trackhawk
The future 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Trackhawk is just a speculation. On the other hand, this high-performance variant makes perfect sense. Jeep’s goal is to attract the buyers as soon as possible. For that reason, Trackhawk is a realistic outcome in the future.
This version will use a 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 unit that will provide around 700 horses. This unit will use the same 8-speed gearbox and it will compete with Durango SRT. Logically, you can expect an aggressive design with an astonishingly sporty appearance.
2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Price and Release Date
The price of the brand-new 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will start at $60,000. This is just a prediction as the full-size SUV could cost even more.
Not to mention the Trackhawk version that will be very expensive. Manufacturer plans to release Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUVs in the last quarter of 2020.
