Always in tune with its history, Jeep has given purists reason to rejoice with the return of the Grand Wagoneer. Covered in screens and teak wood, this luxury giant will allow passengers to navigate in comfort while leaving Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator owners inconsolable in a pile of their own hard-earned cash. Fortunately, car enthusiast and YouTuber Eddiex takes us on a bumper-to-bumper tour of what makes the renaissance of the classic so special.
Right off the bat, it’s clear that the vehicle is packed with technology both inside and out. Whether it’s the plethora of touchscreens, the plug-in hybrid powertrain, or even the huge array of LED lights, it’s clear that Jeep wants to get it right.
The SUV in the video stands on 24-inch rims, which Eddiex was quick to point out that the size of the production version would be reduced a bit. Big feet aside, Jeep clearly dressed its number on this occasion, producing a comfortable and stylish ensemble.
Along with teak wood accents throughout the vehicle, it also has one of the largest sunroofs we’ve ever seen, with a special touch printed on it – a Detroit road map. As Eddiex delves deeper into the interior, the vehicle has been put into one of its “chill” modes playing a soothing fireplace sequence across all interior screens.
Audiophiles will be happy to know that the vehicle is equipped with a 23-speaker McIntosh stereo to accompany you and your passengers with high-fidelity sound. Sure, this is the premium audio brand’s first automotive app in two decades, but these folks have set the standard for home audio since the company was founded in 1949.
While obviously a concept vehicle, the Grand Wagoneer is slated for release in the summer of 2021. The differences between the concept and the production model remain a mystery, but it’s clear the team is on the line. right way.
