The brand-new Jeep Wagoneer S was extensively leaked before its formal debut. Two images of the opulent American electric SUV have surfaced, revealing its front and back three-quarters. It will be among the first Stellantis group cars to utilize the STLA Large modular platform.
While it is more akin to the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover “plain” in terms of size, the new Wagoneer S will not have the “brute” and robust design of previous proposals from the brand, such as the Renegade, Recon, or Wrangler. Instead, it will have more elegant and refined lines that instantly remind us of the Range Rover Velar.
The optical groups are linked to the traditional seven-slot corporate grille, which is lighted and blinded and has no practical use other than aesthetics. The contrasting ceiling contributes to the body’s unusually high shoulder line. The recessed door knobs increase aerodynamics.
Curiously, the automobile has a more traditional-looking profile since the D-pillar does not follow the falling roofline. The tailgate, which has a large spoiler, has the taillights connected across its width by the current market trend. Once more, there is no denying the similarity to the Range Rover Velar.
The Jeep Wagoneer S will be the electric flagship of the American brand.
Jeep revealed a few days ago that the Wagoneer S will come equipped with an off-road management system and a 4xe all-wheel drive system. Its 600 HP of power allows it to reach 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, which is impressive for an SUV of its size. Approximately 644 kilometers of EPA autonomy are expected from it, albeit this has not yet been verified. Additionally, as the STLA Large platform allows both 400 and 800-volt configurations, it is uncertain if its electrical design will be 400 or 800 volts.
There is no certainty that the electric variant will be available on European roads; the Wagoneer and Wagoneer L with internal combustion engines are not offered in Europe. The Wagoneer S, despite its enormous size, could also have a chance because Stellantis intends to sell the new electric Dodge Charger, a vehicle very much to North American taste, on the ancient continent.
