The Wagoneer S, a luxurious battery-electric on the STLA Large platform, is being readied for 2024 production. The latest production-intent image is below, followed by the concept (either or both might be renderings).
The hood appears to be longer in the latest images, suggesting that some room is being taken from the under-hatch area and moved up front (much of the under-hood area can probably be used for storage). One reason for that: the midpriced Jeep Cherokee is going to share the basic body structure.
The integrated spoiler above the hatchback deserves a closer look:
The Wagoneer S will, like the Jeep Recon, be sold entirely as a BEV. Its target range was originally 400 miles, but this number disappeared from the latest (January 2024) announcement, so it may be closer to 360 miles—which would still be quite good.
Peak power is still projected to be 600 hp, with a quick 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds.
A selectable terrain system will be controlled by a knob, as shown in the photo above; the color of the accent LEDs is up to the owner.
A high-end McIntosh sound system will be available either as an option or standard on the top model, along with a degree of autonomous driving. McIntosh is still exclusive to Jeep.
Current reports have the Wagoneer S (concept shown in these photos) starting production in April-July 2024, reportedly at the Toluca, Mexico plant. It will have body code KM49, while the Jeep Cherokee, on the same platform, will have body code KM74.
STLA Large sedans will have up to a 500 mile range, according to the company, but the Wagoneer is likely too large for that.
