In a surprising turn of events, Stellantis’ social media account on Facebook unintentionally gave us a glimpse of the upcoming, highly anticipated all-electric Jeep® Wagoneer S. Although the automaker swiftly deleted the leaked photos, one eagle-eyed reader managed to snag them before they vanished into the digital abyss.
The leaked images showcase the Wagoneer S in a sleek Silver finish, revealing features previously teased during Jeep’s 4xe Day in 2022. Notably, the Wagoneer S is set to make history as the first all-electric vehicle manufactured in North America for Jeep, specifically for the North American market.
MoparInsiders.com sources hint that the Wagoneer S will roll off the production line alongside the new all-electric off-road-oriented Recon and the next-generation Cherokee at the Toluca Assembly Plant in Mexico. Enthusiasts can expect this electrifying addition to hit dealerships later this year.
Taking a closer look at the photos, the Wagoneer S boasts a distinctive front-end design with seamlessly integrated headlights and a modern take on the iconic seven-slot grille. Interestingly, the grille is a backlit design element without any functional grille inlets. As seen through the windshield, the vehicle’s interior features a flat dash reminiscent of the current Tesla’s design philosophy.
The Wagoneer S flaunts a striking two-tone paint scheme, with an all-Black roof and a contrasting color for the rest of the vehicle. The side profile reveals futuristic electric touchpad door handles akin to those on the upcoming Dodge Charger Daytona.
Despite initial plans for a renaming contest, the Wagoneer S appears to be sticking with its “S” nameplate. The rear pillar proudly displays the “S” emblem, a departure from the hidden Easter egg approach seen in previous Wagoneer models. The taillights mimic the design of the headlights, with the Jeep logo prominently positioned in the center.
What’s particularly noteworthy is that the Wagoneer S marks a significant departure by prominently featuring the iconic Jeep logo on the exterior. In a break from tradition, the Jeep logo is no longer hidden as an Easter egg but boldly takes center stage on the rear end. Does this mean the Wagoneer subbrand is coming to an end?
One notable feature is the expansive floating rear spoiler design, giving the vehicle a unique and bold aesthetic. The rear license plate area is designed to accommodate European plates, highlighting the Wagoneer S’s global appeal.
Powered by an all-electric 800-volt powertrain, the vehicle is expected to deliver an impressive 600 horsepower (448 kW) with all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability, achieving a swift 0 to 60 mph run of 3.5 seconds.
Jeep enthusiasts in the United States and Canada (initially in Quebec and British Columbia) can anticipate the Wagoneer S hitting the market this fall, with global distribution slated for 2025.
