It’s been fifteen months since Jeep® teased us with two battery-electric vehicle (BEV) offerings it was planning to bring to market in 2024 – the off-road-oriented Jeep Recon (EJ) and ultra-premium Wagoneer S (KX). Since then, Jeep has been silent about the two offerings, leaving fans in the wings. However, today, Jeep has finally begun to tease the new premium electric Wagoneer offering.
Originally, Jeep said it would offer a competition to find an official name for the Wagoneer S; however, it looks like Jeep has at least so far stuck with the name.
Wrapped around the STLA Large architecture, the Wagoneer S will feature a total of 600 horsepower and will have a range of 400 miles. Our sources have told us that the Wagoneer will feature a new 800-watt electrical architecture, which should drastically improve fast-charging speeds. And speaking of speeds, Jeep says the Wagoneer S will have a 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) time of 3.5 seconds.
Looking totally different than the bigger Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, the Wagoneer looks less Jeepish and sleeker than its stablemates.
The front of the vehicle features a completely new take on the traditional seven-slot grille. Angled upright, the seven-slot grille has breaks in it, while LED tracing lighting goes around the top of the slots. The headlights are more horizontal and swept back for a faster and sleeker look. Even the rear of the vehicle looks different, thanks to a floating rear spoiler over the hatch.
As a five-passenger SUV, the Wagoneer S will be similar in size to the next-generation Jeep Cherokee (KM). Although Jeep hasn’t officially announced it yet, our sources have indicated that the next-generation Cherokee, all-new Recon, and Wagoneer S will be produced at the Toluca Assembly Plant in Mexico. The Wagoneer S is expected to go on sale this fall in the United States and Canada (sold initially in Quebec and British Columbia), with worldwide distribution in 2025.
