This is one of the first looks at the ’21 Jeep Wagoneer prototype. Jeep will re-introduce a three-row SUV to its U.S. lineup through a Ram 1500-based vehicle that will form the basis of its next upward move.
The Wagoneer, which reintroduces a storied name for Jeep, will compete with the Ford Expedition and the GMC Yukon, among others. Three rows of seats are implied, with an expected capacity of as many as eight seats.
Power will likely revolve around the Ram 1500’s current engine range, which includes a 3.6L V6 with or without a 48-volt boost system, as well as the ubiquitous 5.7L V8 engine. A plug-in hybrid system could be offered. A more plush, Grand Wagoneer version is expected soon after the debut of the Wagoneer to compete with the likes of the Lincoln Navigator and even Land Rover’s Range Rover.
The ’21 Wagoneer, however, is expected to be seen by mid-2020.
