After years of rumors and speculation, it’s finally official: the Wagoneer is coming back next year. That’s right, the luxury SUV line that last saw the light way back in the 90s will ply the roads again in the form of the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
No, this isn’t the final production version coming out next year. Instead, Jeep calls it a concept. Do note, though, the actual model will likely be very similar. In fact, it will likely look exactly the same, save for a few extra garnishes that were added specifically to showcase certain elements of the car. So yeah, this is, pretty much, the new-generation Wagoneer and it’s the kind of car that will probably get most people excited.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer takes on a boxy profile reminiscent of the angular shape of the line’s numerous model throughout the years, with bolt upright pillars, bulging fenders, and an overall wide stance. It does get a bevy of subtle curves and creases distributed at various sections to soften the angular edge a bit, making it feel a lot more contemporary. Basically, you won’t look like you’re driving a car from the 1990s. It’s large, too, with a body modeled after the full-size RAM 1500 pick-up, albeit with a luxury streak that should put it in direct competition with the Expeditions, Escalades, and Land Rovers of the world.
Inside, it gets three rows of seats, so this is a big car sized to fit a large family, complete with a large greenhouse and an all-glass roof. Yeah, the entire roof is one big panoramic window. It’s all-luxury inside, by the way, with elegant design and high-end materials showcased from the front seats all the way to the boot in the back.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer has a dashboard that’s absolutely wide, with four separate screens onboard, namely a 12.3-inch instrument display on the driver side, a 12.1-inch infotainment system in the center, a 10.25-inch control screen below it (for climate and seat controls), and even a 10.25-inch screen on the passenger side, so they can watch a movie while you drive. The second row seats also get individual screens, although the back row will have to be used by individuals satisfied with looking at their phones through the trip. A 23-speaker McIntosh sound system will blare music all throughout the cabin.
The vehicle gets a plug-in electric powertrain, which, we’re almost certain, is strictly for this concept iteration of the vehicle. Jeep gave no word about the actual powerplant the production models will get next year, but it will probably be similar to the engine options in the current Wrangler line, with the press release stating a similar electric setup could be an option in the coming years. In case the three-row Grand Wagoneer is too big for your needs, the outfit will also be releasing a two-row 4×4 option, too, with similar specs.
