Jeep Grand Wagoneer Long Wheelbase Planned To Rival Escalade ESV
Probably one of the biggest news of the past week is the arrival of the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Although the car shown was technically a concept, expect minimal changes in the production version.
While the purpose of the Grand Wagoneer Concept is to show us what Jeep can do in terms of a bigger SUV – and a nameplate back to that – there’s more to it. Jeep has always made many plans for the Wagoneer’s nameplate.
As mentioned by Jeep in its release for the Grand Wagoneer, and as supported by Motor trendAccording to the report, the American automaker has a lot of things planned for the return nameplate. These plans include two names in the body-on-chassis SUV family – the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer.
The Wagoneer will be the standard version of the Jeep SUV, competing with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition and GMC Yukon. The Grand Wagoneer is the more luxurious version (and will be closer to the concept), which will run counter to the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. The Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer are scheduled to arrive in summer 2021.
In addition, there will be long-wheelbase versions of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. The Wagoneer long wheelbase will compete with the Chevrolet Suburban, Ford Expedition Max, and GMC Yukon XL, while the higher-end Grand Wagoneer long wheelbase will take on the Escalade ESV and Navigator L. And, with a price tag that could reach a hundred thousand dollars, the lineup – the long wheelbase of the Grand Wagoneer also has the Land Rover Range Rover in its sights.
