The Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept’s production counterpart will finally show off its full-size SUV shape on March 11. The 2022 model-year SUV is due to spawn standard Wagoneer and more luxurious Grand Wagoneer trims, as well as short- and long-wheelbase variants.
Although we don’t expect the production SUV to be a spitting image of its concept counterpart, we do believe it will maintain the Grand Wagoneer show vehicle’s basic design details. As Jeep’s 15-second teaser for the forthcoming model shows, the brand’s newest model’s mug will lose the concept version’s unibrow light strip spanning the headlights. It also looks to welcome larger tri-LED fog lamps in its lower fascia.
Overall, though, we expect the production Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer to retain the concept SUV’s upright profile and available two-tone roof. A wiper ought to find its way to the rear window, which sadly is not expected to motor its way down into the hatch itself like that of the original Grand Wagoneer (or the current Toyota 4Runner and Sequoia SUVs).
Power ought to come courtesy of a standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine and available 5.7-liter V-8, while a plug-in gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain ought to emerge as an option in the coming model years. Admittedly, we’re simply guessing about these things at this point. What we do know, though, is the new Jeep flagship SUV will be available this Summer and will offer Amazon Fire TV for Auto—an automotive first. The rest, however, will surely be revealed on March 11, at 12 PM EST.
