Jeep aficionados usually associate the brand with crazy adventures and inaccessible terrain. They can continue thinking of it that way, but with the arrival of the 2021 Jeep Wagoneer, they’ll have to expand their concept to include luxury.
We’re looking at something different here: a classier, roomier SUV with an extravagant interior and a bold style. An SUV that combines the ruggedness of a pickup with the elegance of such notable rivals as the Chevy Tahoe, Ford Expedition, BMW X7 and Cadillac Escalade. The 2021 Jeep Wagoneer will have towing capacity to spare. Whether you’re a nature lover looking to haul your boat or camper or a construction worker looking to haul your tools and hardware, you’ll have access to all the power you need.
The brute force of the 2021 Jeep Wagoneer
The Grand Wagoneer lineup includes a plug-in hybrid powertrain. And we know that the manufacturer is working on a plan for an all-electric range. In light of other PHEV models pending release by competitors, the company has made this concept a central focus of its ambitious plans. The manufacturer aims to make the full range of Jeep models available in hybrid or plug-in hybrid versions between now and 2022.
Jeep says that all models of the Wagoneer will use a body-on-frame derived from the Ram 1500, but will be equipped with independent rear suspension rather than the solid rear axle used on the truck.
Another feature the 2021 Jeep Wagoneer will share with the Dodge Ram is the choice of engines and transmissions. This suggests that the 3.6 L with the eTorque hybrid system will be the base engine. The more powerful 5.7 L Hemi V8, also equipped with eTorque technology, will certainly be offered, as well.
There’s also a chance that the revised 3.0 L V6 diesel, which is optional on the half-ton Ram, will be part of the lineup.
They say that the Grand Wagoneer will offer “unmatched” towing capacity and will be available with three different all-wheel drive systems and air suspension.
The comfortable 2021 Jeep Wagoneer SUV
With three rows of seats, the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will offer many families the opportunity to experience the Jeep lifestyle. A lifestyle that almost met its demise with the Commander.
Based on the Grand Wagoneer concept, the cabin is one of the most elegant and features some of most advanced technologies ever offered by the manufacturer.
The interior is further enhanced with customizable ambient lighting and a full-length glass roof. The 2021 Jeep Wagoneer concept can seat up to seven, with second-row captain’s chairs and a third-row bench for three.
Those who thought that the Mercedes-Benz S Class had a lot of screens will surely be excited when they see the Jeep Wagoneer. Not only does it feature a 12.1-inch gauge cluster, but it also boasts a 12.1-inch center touchscreen on top of a 10.3-inch touchscreen with controls for the HVAC system.
It’s almost a given that a plethora of popular content and connectivity features will also be included, from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to a WiFi hotspot and wireless charging. The concept also boasts a 10.3-inch touchscreen mounted on the second-row center console, as well as two additional 10.1-inch touchscreens—one for each second-row passenger.
The icing on the cake is the powerful 23-speaker McIntosh stereo system. Jeep proudly proclaims that this is the only automotive sound system in the world powered by McIntosh.
So it’s a safe bet that it will be pretty good. Just like everything else about the 2021 Jeep Wagoneer, eagerly waiting for you to come discover it at Dilawri Auto in Gatineau and Ottawa.
