Jeep Grand Wagoneer EV release date

Meunier hinted that the Grand Wagoneer EV would debut around the time when the Wagoneer family is due for a facelift, which is expected in mid-2024. Jeep has released a teaser (above), and we have enhanced it to show more of its exclusive styling at the front.

Think about what you’ve seen, the Grand Wagoneer, you evolve it in a few years and you put big battery packs.

Revealing Stellantis’ ‘Dare Forward 2030’ long-term strategic plan on March 1, 2022, CEO Carlos Tavares shared the EV product roadmap for the United States. The slide revealed two Jeep EV launches in the U.S. by 2025, and the Lifestyle Family SUV could be the Grand Wagoneer EV. Here is what Tavares said while the above presentation slide played in the background:

For Jeep, we’ll have two products coming: an off-road jeep UV and a lifestyle family SUV, both in 2024.

Stellantis plans to launch more than 25 EVs in the U.S. by 2030, and the Grand Wagoneer EV is among the models. Jeep has announced that it would have one pure-electric offering in every SUV segment by 2025. The first electric Jeep (Jeep Junior), a B-Segment model, will reach European dealers in 2023 marking a new era for the American company.

The long-wheelbase 2023 Wagoneer L is larger than the standard Wagoneer model

Along with the new engine, the other major change for the 2023 Wagoneer is the addition of a long-wheelbase L model. The L model is larger than the standard Wagoneer model, with 12 inches added to the SUV’s length and 7.0 inches added to the wheelbase. 

As a result of the increased size, the Wagoneer L provides more passenger and cargo space than the standard Wagoneer. This includes:

  • Class-leading total passenger volume of 179.3 cu-ft
  • Class-leading cargo space behind the third row: 44.2 cu-ft

Jeep Grand Wagoneer L Engine And Performance

To cope with all that weight, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer L's engine needs to have enough power. To that end, the new Hurricane 3.0-liter inline-six twin-turbo engine comes only in high-output guise in the Grand Wagoneer L. It produces a strong 510 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers are better than what the 6.4-liter naturally-aspirated V8 in the regular Grand Wagoneer can manage, and brings the Grand Wagoneer L into better contention with the Lincoln Navigator which has a twin-turbo V6. Cadillac has the option of a torquey and efficient turbodiesel, so all of these gargantuan SUVs have moved on from exclusively big V8s.

Although 0-60 times aren't of great importance here, what is worth noting are the fuel economy estimates of 14/19/16 mpg city/highway/combined as published by Jeep. That's 1 mpg better overall than the smaller, lighter, and less powerful Grand Wagoneer 4×4 with the 6.4-liter V8.

Paired with the Hurricane engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission and there are three available 4×4 systems: Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Drive II. An air suspension with semi-active damping is standard on the Grand Wagoneer L. Impressively, the Grand Wagoneer L can tow up to 9,450 lbs.
