The new 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoner will keep its classic style but it is done with some tweaks and changes, resulting in newer and more modern design. If you compare the images from the old Wagoner with the new one, you can still see the signature line and shape but the newer one is done with a sleeker style and curves. Of course, the changes aren’t only happening on the exterior area but on the interior and the mechanical elements. So, what can you expect from the new Wagoner?
The new 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoner is expected to come right in the middle of 2018 – the exact date is yet unknown. However, the most drastic change is about the luxury crossover effect that is claimed stronger than the Grand Cherokee with its seven seater arrangement. According to FCA CEO, the new Wagoner is designed to compete against Ranger Rover and Mercy GLS which are definitely more luxurious than the Cherokee. So it is only safe to conclude that the new Wagoner will be more luxurious than the Cherokee.
Considering that the new 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoner is set to deal with such tough competitors like Mercy and Range Rover, it should be coming with unique and impressive features and designs – and that’s how the Wagoner will be presented to the world. After all, the FCA is specializing in the SUVs and crossovers so it is only logical if they have an ambitious plan for their upcoming production.
According to the company, they have been dealing with serious team work, focusing on the development of the new platform. It is likely that the new crossover is getting the similar platform of Cherokee although with improved styles and features.
If you take a look at the new rendering image, you will see that the new Wagoner will be taller, wider, and longer with an overall new construction. The air suspension will be new, designed to improve smooth driving comfort. It is possible that they are using an independent suspension – among other things.
What about the powertrain? Since it is going to be a competitive ride, it should be coming with the right power. It is possible to use the V6 engine with 3.6 liter capacity for the base model, delivering 355 hp of power. For the higher trim, the V6 twin turbo 3.0 liter engine is possibly used, delivering 400 hp of power for the new 2018 Jeep Grand Wagoner.
