The Wagoneer S will be Jeep’s new range-topping model

Range-topping premium SUV to launch next year in US; bound for Europe in 2025

Jeep has revealed the interior of its upcoming Wagoneer S – a 600bhp premium SUV that will lead the American brand’s electric future.

Built predominantly for US buyers, the five-metre-long Wagoneer S, which could be considered an electrified rival to the Range Rover Sport, will arrive in 2025.

In the newly released images, the Wagoneer is shown to have at least four digital screens: a digital dial display behind the steering wheel, a large central infotainment touchscreen, a smaller touchscreen below that for controlling features such as the climate control and another large touchscreen for the front passenger.

The Wagoneer S also features several buttons on the steering wheel, plus what appear to be haptic feedback ‘buttons’ on the centre of the dashboard.

Jeep says a panoramic sunroof is also standard, plus ambient lighting, while a 19-speaker audio system will be available as an option. 

Set to launch first in its home country of the US in 2024, the Wagoneer S will also be sold in limited in both left- and right-hand-drive European markets. That means we will see it at some point in the UK.

It will arrive with a range of around 373 miles and will top a new seven-car line-up for Jeep in the UK, including the already on-sale Jeep Avenger and 2025-bound Jeep Recon.

A fourth EV will also join the range and is expected in Europe by 2023. Jeep CEO Christian Meunier has described it as a look into the future of the brand. 

The Wagoneer S will be one of the first models to sit on Jeep parent company Stellantis’s new STLA Large architecture. This mirrors the much-anticipated Wrangler-esque Recon, with which it will share the majority of its underpinnings.

The range-topper will arrive with a raft of premium features, Jeep has promised. It will pack 600bhp and be able to sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.5sec. What kit it will use to do this has yet to be confirmed.

In the US, Jeep already sells combustion-engined Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models, having revived the storied name – first used in 1962 – in 2020 as the base for a new family of premium SUVs.
