If you are a Fiat Chrysler enthusiast, then you are in luck! Your very own favorite, Jeep Grand Wagoneer might return with the same exquisite built and quality in showrooms near you as soon as the calendar hits 2018. Yes, the CEO Sergio Marchionne hinted the return of the first ever four-wheel luxury vehicle that came into the marketplace in 1961. The buyers saw it as an admirable concept which led to the success of the vehicle. Now after almost a quarter of the century, Fiat Chrysler is going to revive the luxury jeep. The 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is a vehicle concept in a process which has combined the engine power of a jeep with the luxury of an SUV. The 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer would be built on the Jeep Grand Cherokee 2017 platform but it’ll end up as a new and improved version of the aforementioned vehicle. Unlike the two-row Grand Cherokee, the 2018 Grand Wagoneer will be bigger three-row seats and the company is looking to compete with the Land Rover luxury market segment with their new 2018 Wagoneer.
2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer – External Body Parts and Inner Cosmetic Changes
Little is known about the exterior yet because the secrecy of design is very important to the company until the new 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is released into the market. Although we do have some details and an idea of how it’s going to be. You can expect the same sturdy built as the Grand Cherokee 2017 as the car is being built on the same platform. The chassis of the jeep would be made for an outdoor experience that includes an off-road terrain. It’s going to have bigger wheels with deeper patterns, designed, keeping in mind the road grip of the vehicle. According to some predictions, the front grille will have vertical openings. Certain elements such as bumpers, LED lights and steps will be also added in metallic colors.
We expect that it would have the same wood paneling interior as it used to have back in the days. The interiors from the new 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be a lot improved with modifications like leather heated seats. Also, it will feature an electronically controlled sunroof and state of the art touch in-dashboard display with premium navigation. There also will be Bluetooth connectivity as well as wireless internet. As we mentioned earlier, the upgraded version is going to have more seating capacity because of its 3-row seats, so it could accommodate 7 passengers easily.
2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer – Engine, Suspensions, and Performance
Still based on speculations, the basic version of the new Jeep Grand Wagoneer 2018 is probably going to feature a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 370 hp rather than a 3.2-liter V6 engine like the one featured in the Trail hawk version of the Cherokee. The new and improved engine would produce an immense amount of horsepower perfect for your off-roading needs. Another version of the 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is expected to have a V8 engine with 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that produces more than 470 hp. The new Wagoneer might even most likely have a much better fuel economy than the Cherokee thanks to the new Stop Begin technology. The suspensions are mostly likely designed as four-wheel independent suspension.
