2018 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is the luxurious new car that many people wait for since the current offerings of jeeps are quite old. This brand new model is about to change that. The 5-year plan of FCA group had been announced few months ago. This announcement was also about the sneak peek of several new Jeep models.
The release date of this new Jeep Grand Wagoneer is expected in the mid of 2018. Several months that is may worth to wait. So far, there hasn’t been detail information about this car. But is seems that it will not be the same like many people’s expectation and imagination. The reason is because this car may quite look the same to a modern crossover compare to a Grand Cherokee with seven seats. The competitors that has suggested by the CEO of FCA Group are maybe the famous Range Rover and Mercedes GLS. Both of them are a lot more luxurious compare to Grand Cherokee.
Will it be an impressive SUV?
To compete with those famous cars like Mercedes GLS and Range Rover, the Grand Wagoneer must have a unique factor. Even though it is no longer secret that FCA group is presently focusing on SUV and crossover, there are huge staffs who work behind the Grand Wagoneer. Actually there can be many new things to be revealed about this car to public, but it turns out that there may not be as many new things to be expected.
What’s the detail?
Regardless from the statements spread in the media, it doesn’t mean that this Jeep Grand Wagoneer will not be okay. Even though the platform of this car may sound and look old, it can be upgraded or updated with the latest features and technology that FCA is ready to offer. But many people are sure if this Grand Wagoneer will be less luxurious, wider, and taller and possibly longer compare to Grand Cherokee. Regardless the comparison, the other features of this car will be all brand new. The air suspension system should be all new that can allow the driver to experience smoother driving.
How the design will be?
So far, there are few spy shots and new leaks of camouflage model of the Grand Wagoneer. We can see that at a glance in early 2017 when the Grand Wagoneer has still been under development. Many people say that the design itself is more or less like an evolution from the previous car which is Grand Cherokee. There is rumor about the entire new design scheme even though the developer may not use it as a whole to be applied in the Grand Wagoneer.
What are the specifications of this Grand Wagoneer?
To make it count as a competitive new car model, this car should be powerful. But so far, this car will start lower end of the Jeep class and also quite low engine offer to the customers. The basic model is expected to use 3.6 liter V6 which is equal as around 335 horsepower. FCA group said that Grand Wagoneer provide engines that is capable over 400 horsepower using 3 liter twin-turbo V6. Talking about its performance, it seems that the version of the performance can compete with Range Rover SVR or AMG GLS. It may use turbo that has more than 500 horsepower using 500 lb-ft of torque and 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8. It also offers rear wheel drive that is quite same with other standard wheel drive system.
