The all-new Jeep Wagoneer makes its debut
The Jeep Wagoneer aka the fancier version of the Grand Wagoneer has just arrived. After months of delay but it’s the iconic Jeep Wagoneer will live on, promising great style and luxury.
The Wagoneer will be powered by its familiar 5.7-litre V8, producing 292kW of power and 547 Nm of torque (plus a 48-volt hybrid system). Both will be available in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, meanings there something for everyone. Across the range the Wagoneer will be offered with premium LED lights and 20- and 22-inch wheels. Its body gets finished in a choice of Diamond Black, Bright White, Luxury White, Silver Zynith, Baltic Gray, Velvet Red, and River Rock Blue.
The inside of the cabin is full of luxury and space. Standard features include leather upholstery is standard throughout the range, as are 12-way power front seats with memory settings, and you can opt for second-row captain's chairs for maximum second-row comfort.
The Wagoneer boasts what Jeep is calling the "most advanced Uconnect system ever". A 10.25-inch driver display is standard with a 10.1-inch infotainment display. Much like a modern Audi, a secondary 10.25-inch touchscreen being placed below the main screen, with a structural aluminum wing separating the two.
Further tech options include a 10-inch full-color head-up display, complementing features like lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and the available fully digital rearview mirror. This screen can also be switched back to a traditional reflective mirror at the flick of a switch, and if you like using your mirror to see the back of the car rather than a check on your little ones, a rear seat monitoring camera is available with a split-screen display and a "zoom-to-seat" function.
The Wagoneer is being offered in Series I, Series II, and Series III trim levels, but the Series I variant will arrive late. To start with you get the Series II Standard, offered in either 4x2 or 4x4 configuration. As standard, you get 20-inch wheels, a 10.1-inch infotainment display, a nine-speaker Alpine sound system, tri-zone automatic climate control, and Nappa leather on-bench seats, providing enough room for eight individuals to be comfortably seated.
Whether the Wagoneer will make its way to our South African shores remains unknown. But its price tag currently starts at $67,995 making it around R1 007 362.
