Iconic Grand Wagoneer returns as concept to redefine premium SUV

Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept

It’s a new dawn for an American classic.

The Jeep® Grand Wagoneer, a premium SUV like no other, is back as a concept vehicle to redefine the segment it did so much to create.

Born in the tracks of the Wagoneer, it became the “gold standard” in luxury 4x4s and part of America’s adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit for decades to come.

Now, the Grand Wagoneer Concept brings that authenticity and character into the modern era with all the comfort and luxuries discerning drivers might expect – and plenty that will surprise them.

Grand Wagoneer was always a pioneering vehicle that pushed the boundaries and the latest version is stacked with new capabilities and innovative technology, all wrapped in elegant, timeless styling.

Grand Wagoneer Concept sports stately style.

Stepping inside, it offers three rows in which every seat is a first-class experience.

In the front, for example, the co-pilot screen enables the passenger to control navigation and then swipe it over to the driver. They can also control what the kids are watching in the back, and even pick up watching the TV show they were viewing at home.

The integration of technology, comfort and attention to detail continues throughout, from the soft-touch leather to upscale McIntosh sound system.

To top it off, the driver can park, switch into relax mode and watch the aurora borealis light up the screens before them.

Second-row seating
Second-row passengers get their own entertainment touchscreens plus a shared comfort display screen.

Don’t be lulled into thinking this vehicle is only about luxury, though. True to Jeep form, the Grand Wagoneer Concept can pull, tow and climb with reassuring power.

It has a “green soul,” too, incorporating sustainable materials such as onyx glass and heat-treated lacewood, and offers a plug-in hybrid powertrain to carry passengers silently through city or country.

In many ways, the Grand Wagoneer Concept has come a long way from its predecessor, yet it maintains the unique qualities that make the name so special.
While details of a production version are still to be announced, Jeep has provided a breathtaking example of what may be in store.
