When is the new Jeep Wagoneer for Sale

Remember Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer? The two suburban classics are set for a BIG RE-LAUNCH. Here’s how the new versions eclipse the original.

A $4.5 Billion Investment

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is so serious about competing in the three-row SUV market

that they’ve invested $4.5B in the Michigan manufacturing plants that produce them.

The news was originally reported by Reuters.

The Plot Thickens…

So what will the new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer look like?

Past incarnations would be a bit too retro-looking for today’s style-conscious consumer.

The new Wagoneers might resemble the Jeep Yuntu concept that debuted in Shanghai, China a few years back.

Keep in mind that this is only an educated guess.

That Yuntu concept (which was exclusive to the Chinese market) boasted seven seats,

including a second row that had the ability to lie down and flip.

Other stand-out touchpoints included sharp, clean lines, and slim LED headlights and taillights.

Of course, Jeep could always use

the Yuntu’s aesthetic as inspiration 

while ALSO adding a dash of wood paneling

(as depicted in the original Wagoneer, far right).

When is the new Jeep Wagoneer for Sale?

FCA has previously announced that the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will begin production in early 2021.

Their model year will be for 2022, which should put them

on dealership lots sometime during the latter part of 2021.

Some Fun Wagoneer Trivia

Did you know?

The Jeep Wagoneer, which was introduced in 1962,

featured the first automatic transmission and independent suspension in a 4×4 vehicle.

Styled by the famed industrial designer Brooks Steven, the Wagoneer captured

the public imagination with its modern styling and good looks.

The Wagoneer was renamed the Grand Wagoneer in 1984

(to coincide with the introduction of the downsized Wagoneer).

In 1965, the Jeep® Brand introduced the refined Super Wagoneer–a true luxury 4×4. The model boasted

many premium features including air conditioning, power tailgate, power brakes,power steering, and a seven-position tilt steering wheel.

More Throwback Jeep Models

The Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer are hardly the only throwback Jeep models.

How many of these blasts from the past have you heard of?

The original Jeep 4×4

The first Jeep brand 4×4 earned war-time credentials. 

The year was 1940 and America was on the brink of entering WWII.

At this time, the U.S. Army solicited bids from 135 automakers for a 1/4 ton

“light reconnaissance vehicle” tailored to Army specifications.

What resulted was the vehicle that’s known worldwide today by one word: “jeep.”

A camper on a Jeep!?!

Yes.

This model featured a unique, industry-first detaching system that made removing your camper a simpler task.

Having trouble imagining such a (totally quirky) combination?

Google the phrase CJ5 camper for some instant nostalgia.

The luxury SUV comes into its own.

In the early ‘90s, the Grand Cherokee (ZJ) replaced 

the Wagoneer as the brand’s mid-size luxury SUV.

Drivers of the new Grand Cherokee enjoyed state-of-the-art features like

four-wheel antilock brakes, highway-speed four-wheel-drive systems,

and safety features like airbags. Jeep Grand Cherokee

would eventually come to solidify

the luxury SUV’s place in the auto market. (Don’t believe it?? Just look how many are sold today!)

Jeep Commander is introduced in 2006.

The 2006 Commander was the first seven-passenger Trail Rated® Jeep® 4×4 vehicle.

It boasted third-row seating and a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine.

The boxy styling on the Commander—with an upright windshield and squared-off sides—instantly distinguishes it.

As the Commander’s run ended relatively recently (2010), you can still find them for sale from time to time.

Throwback or fashion-forward, compact or mid-size, choosing a Jeep is always a good idea!
