FCA is preparing a lot of novelties for the next year. Still, one of the most intriguing things for the next year is the expected big comeback of the legendary nameplate. Of course, we are talking about Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. The two models will be very similar. The Wagoneer is expected to be a standard version, while the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be a long-wheelbase model, which will feature the same overall design, but notably longer wheelbase. As a consequence, we expect to see much more space on the inside, as well as a more generous cargo area.
The 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be a typical SUV that rides on a body-on-frame platform. A truck-based design should provide additional rigidity, as well as a lot of benefits in terms of off-road performances and towing capacity. Such an old-school design is something we haven’t seen from Jeep for a quite long time.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Design
The first thing that comes to mind about the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is the fact that this will be a traditionally-designed SUV. A body-on-frame platform is definitely something you can count on with this model. Moreover, the new model will have a lot of things in common with Ram 1500. The new generation of the legendary pickup truck has been introduced last year and it has brought a lot of novelties and improvements, especially in terms of efficiency, capabilities and overall performances.
We presume that the same things will be implemented in the Grand Wagoneer as well. Despite the BoF layout, we count on a relatively light and maneuverable vehicle, which will compete with models like Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition Max etc.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Exterior Design
When it comes to the Grand Wagoneer exterior design, a good thing to know is that the testing model has been spotted. Therefore, we can easily see that this will be a pretty large SUV. It’s not hard to see that the new model will feature more than 130 inches between the axles. Also, we count on a pretty typical SUV shape, which is characterized by a boxy, wagon-like body.
Still, the thing that 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer spy shots don’t show is the actual styling of the vehicle. The testing model still wears a complete camouflage and we can only speculate about aesthetical solutions at the moment. Still, we know for sure that the new model will be designed in a traditional manner, with Jeep’s familiar face, especially when it comes to the grille layout. Of course, a lot of similarities with Grand Cherokee is something we expect to see, just in a much bigger package.
Given the size and proportions, the first thing that comes to mind about the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Interior is the amount of space. We count on one of the most spacious cabins on the market. Thank’s to a long wheelbase and a wagon-like body, we should see three extremely generous rows of seats, with more than 40 inches of legroom in each one. Besides plenty of space between the seats, we also count on a generous cargo area. If we look at the future rivals, Suburban and Expedition Max, we may expect around 120 cubic feet of the volume.
Of course, a huge amount of space isn’t the only thing we expect to see in this SUV. We also count on a pretty upscale cabin layout. The interior quality has never been an issue for Jeep models, so the Grand Wagoneer shouldn’t be an exception. Count on hi-quality materials, as well as on loads of standard equipment. Still, keep in mind that this may affect the final 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer price.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, there are several possibilities for the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Base models will probably come with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which is good for about 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. Of course, we count on the eTorque mild hybrid system as well, which will have a positive effect on overall performances for sure.
We could also see a hi-performance version and the first engine that comes to mind is the excellent 6.4-liter HEMI V8. Still, keep in mind that FCA develops a new turbo inline-six, which should be good for more than 500 horsepower. That would definitely be a great choice for this full-size SUV.
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Release Date and Price
At this point, we are still waiting to hear something from the officials. Still, most reports suggest that the 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer release date won’t happen any earlier than in the last quarter of 2020. When it comes to the price, we presume that base versions will go pretty close to 55.000 dollars.
