According to spy photos, we can conclude that Wagoneer will use some cues from Grand Cherokee. It will sit on the body-on-frame architecture. The same platform also underpins the Ram 1500 model. From a reliable source, the platform under Wagoner model will be improved. So, we can expect to be made of lighter materials that will improve fuel economy and make this SUV more stable.
On the front, Jeep Wagoneer will get the well-known seven-slot grille that looks very nice on rendering photos. Also, the next big thing that takes attention is a massive bumper, that gives a more muscular look to this SUV. On the back, the manufacturer will use horizontal taillights and the new exhaust outlets. 17-inch wheels are standard, and we can expect bigger wheels on upper trims.
