- jeep's president said that the new grand wagoneer will cost over $100,000 when fully loaded.
- the standard non-luxury wagoneer model will start around $60,000.
- the production grand wagoneer will arrive in mid-2021.
the jeep grand wagoneer will top $100,000 fully loaded, while the mainstream wagoneer will start around $60,000. that info is from jeep president christian meunier, who discussed the new full-size suv’s price range during a briefing about the new grand wagoneer concept, a thinly veiled version of the production model that will arrive in the summer of 2021.
it seems that jeep is trying to cover all the bases with the wagoneer and grand wagoneer lineup, as this suv is tasked with being a competitor not only to the chevy, gmc, and ford suvs of the world but also to high-end models such as the cadillac escalade and lincoln navigator. while we had previously thought that the wagoneer and grand wagoneer names would refer to short- and long-wheelbase models, it now seems that jeep intends the wagoneer to be the more mainstream offering and the grand wagoneer to be the luxury version.
meunier did say that short- and long-wheelbase models will be offered, though, suggesting that both the wagoneer and grand wagoneer will be offered in multiple configurations. we are sure that the two models will share mechanicals, with both riding on the ram 1500’s body-on-frame platform and offering v-6, v-8, and hybrid drivetrains. the grand wagoneer is likely to differentiate itself in terms of exterior and interior styling and higher levels of equipment to justify its higher price. the concept version of the grand wagoneer has a plug-in-hybrid powertrain, although jeep isn’t sharing many details at this point.
