New players are entering the segment of full-size SUVs. Among them, the Wagoneer’s comeback is one of the most anticipated things for the next year. Besides the standard version, we are also about to see its stretched version, which will come as the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. As you may presume, this model will feature a longer wheelbase and bigger overall dimensions, which should provide a notably roomier interior. That’s pretty much the same thing we can see in the Chevy Suburban and Ford Expedition Max, which are stretched versions of Tahoe and standard Expedition, respectively.
Naturally, the Grand Wagoneer will have much more to offer than just a roomy cabin. We may count a luxurious cabin, powerful engines and great overall ride quality. Of course, we also count on a long list of standard equipment, particularly in terms of tech goodies and safety systems. We expect to see it in the second half of 2020.
How Spacious Will 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Be?
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind about this SUV is the interior space. At this point, we still don’t have exact numbers, but we can make some predictions by looking at the numbers of key rivals, Suburban and Expedition Max.
Therefore, it’s not hard to conclude that the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will feature more than 130 inches in wheelbase. Such a long wheelbase will provide plenty of space in all three rows. For example, the Expedition offers more than 40 inches of legroom in the third row, which is more compared to most second rows in the class. On the other side, Chevy isn’t that generous in back rows, but features probably the most spacious front seats on the market, with more than 45 inches of legroom. Another thing we should mention is the cargo volume. In both cases, it goes over 121.5 cubic feet.
Given the numbers of rivals, it’s not hard to presume that the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will stick to similar figures. You may count on more than 130 inches between the axles, while each row should feature more than 40 inches of legroom. Also, the cargo area should go around 120 cubic feet.
2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Design
The 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be a huge vehicle, so it’s not hard to presume which model will serve as the basis. As we are talking about a body-on-frame SUV, it seems obvious that the new model will ride on the same platform as the famous Ram 1500. The Grand Wagoneer will feature the same mechanics, though we might see some upgrades. This particularly refers to the rear axle, where we should see an independent rear suspension, a feature that is standard in Expedition and should be in the next-generation Suburban as well.
Styling and Interior Design
Of course, we should say a couple of words about aesthetics. The new model has been spotted on the road, but it still wears a complete camouflage. Still, we could make some predictions and presume that the new model will stick to Jeep’s common styling philosophy. This primarily refers to the famous grille design, which includes those recognizable vertical bars. The rest of the vehicle should be designed in a pretty conservative manner as well.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer won’t be just roomy, but also quite upscale from the inside. We could on hi-quality, soft-touch materials all around the cabin, while the dashboard will come with attractive design solutions as well. Of course, we also count on loads of tech features, including that large touchscreen that can be found in the Ram 1500.
2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Engines
Most reports suggest that the new Wagoneer will come with FCA’s familiar units, including both V6 and V8 units. On the other side, the 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer probably won’t be available with a smaller V6 engine. Base models should come with a familiar 5.7-liter V8, which delivers around 395 horsepower.
A diesel engine also doesn’t seem very likely, so some reports suggest another V8 engine in the offer. Of course, the first one that comes to mind is a 6.4-liter unit, but you can find reports that even speculate about the supercharged 6.2-liter V8.
In any case, all models should come in pair with 8-speed automatic transmission, standard RWD and optional AWD layout.
2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Release Date and Price
The 2021 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is currently in a testing phase and will hit the market in 2020. Most reports suggest the third quarter of the year. When it comes to price, it is still hard to talk about some more precise figures, but we may presume that base versions will probably go around 57.000 dollars.
